Getting very close to the end of Chapter 5. Probably won't hit it this stream, but we'll see how it goes:

Didn't quite hit the end of Chapter 5, but I came close. Only a few rooms to go before I do!

I meant to mention this in the stream, but it slipped my mind. Tomorrow I'm going to try doing an architecture stream and make at least one room, to help with finishing up the hold.

We don't have that many rooms left to make relative to the total number we expect in the hold... but we still have to make them. So tomorrow's will be a bit of practice. Starting time will be noon for me, same time as when the EP testing streams start. I probably won't go for three hours, more likely one and a bit, but we'll see how things go.

Note that one of the levels I'm making is very spoilery, so people who want to find out the plot of EP either through my streams or by playing it for themselves should be wary.

That worked out okay. I didn't have much of an audience for the start of it, but that was still helpful; I felt I should be doing something to keep the stream interesting, so I just plopped stuff down and played with it, and that led to a room.

Took me about an hour to make the one room, and I didn't feel much like making another one, but I did put together a quick sketch I may be able to do something with.

Going to try another architecture stream. The room I'm going to try to do something with today is for the final level of the hold, so there will likely be spoilers.

Didn't end up finishing a room, or even get very far in designing it. I think I'm not quite prepared to do these for a room that's as scripting-based as these ones are.

But I got some ideas fleshed out a little, so I think there was defnitely some benefit to trying it out.

Levels are getting quite tough now. This stream was almost entirely a single level. (In fairness, it was an optional one with quite a few rooms and nonstandard gameplay.)

So it may take a while to get through this chapter. We'll see how it goes from here.

Going to try architecture streaming again. This time, I set up some structures in the room in order to cut down on the need to do script editing on-stream, and I'm going to see if I can come up with things to fill the room up with. We'll see how it goes!

A heads-up before the stream: I think I'll be pausing the test streams for a bit after today.

We've hit a point in the hold where there's a lot of work to be done on fixing things up - it's mostly this chapter, as it's right in a mix of "not as much testing as the earlier levels" and "architects haven't been very active" so a lot of feedback hadn't been addressed before this. Plus, I'm close to a transition point in the hold that we haven't finished setting up.

And for one reason or another, we haven't quite been able to keep up, or meet our goals of working ahead so that the bulk of the issues can be addressed before I stream the levels.

Part of the reason I started these streams was to provide a little bit of time pressure to keep us working. Unfortunately I think it ended up pushing us a bit harder than we could handle right now, which might have ended up being a little demoralizing.

So I think it's best if I take a pause for some time while we take stock of the state of the project and figure out how we want to proceed. My current plan is to do some architecture streams during that downtime, so that we can keep activity going.

We're still going on with today's stream, although note that I'll be doing a couple of levels which we plan on significantly revamping. I decided under the circumstances that I might as well do them in their current state, and we'll see if that gives us any helpful information.

Thanks to everyone who's been following this. I've had a lot of fun doing these streams, and it's been very gratifying to see them help us out with finishing the project.
