This will be a weekly devlog.
I will have two goals: A primary, and an optional secondary goal. The primary goal is something that will be marked by BOLD lettering, and will be something that I absolutely must finish by the end of the week. The optional secondary goal will be marked by ITALIC lettering, and will be something that I can expand on, applying what I've learned in the primary goal.
EDIT: Formatting change. Posts will now be weekly, detailing progress.
WARNING: FORMATTING HAS CHANGED. SEE REPLY POST.
April 4th, 2:25 P.M. EST - Progress. =)
I started out this weekend with some word games pertaining to the theme of this month's challenge, in order to narrow my focus on what this month's game is supposed to be about. Here was my process:
Age: A period of time measuring how long something or someone has existed. =====> A period of time marked by a change in understanding or situation. Synonymous with "Era".
I began to think about "Eras", and what kind of events would create an era, such as a scientific advancement (Era of Knowledge), or the end of a war (Era of Peace). Really liked the latter.
From this, I've crafted my current idea, iterated on it, and created what (I think) is the final design of the map. I'm beginning to flesh out the details of the game, and I am now beginning to layout the systems of the game.
