Oh, don't worry! I think I'm harsher on myself than your video since the actual story I planned is much longer and barely like what I presented. I've never coded anything before, so I feel that I spent too much time learning how everything works. And true! I have time now to fix things without worrying about trying to learn coding in a month's time. One thing I will have to learn is to make sure branching paths carry over to later chapters without bugging out. There's actually three or four planned variations that need to be coded in.
If I participate next year for a different story, at least I have learned a lot that I can focus on writing so I don't have to cut out so much. I will probably do one with the blue/purple haired elf in my profile banner. I draw him often enough that it shouldn't be an issue.
If you decide to check out Home's Embrace, I have Sunlit to thank for helping me out so much with Kinfallen. She was pretty patient and taught me enough that I could do trivial thinks like idle blinking animations. XD
