July 7, 2015 -- Day 178
This is kind of 'a-mentally-exhausting' week.
Just announce the game's 2nd demo release date. I felt there's a sudden urgency going on & got little bit of mental block. Now I feel I wasn't progressing fast enough. I feel as if there's much-much more work to be done and I just couldn't realize the most of them. It's interesting that once the deadline is on schedule, things just got SERIOUS.
So this week, I will try solving the problem about the 'ketchup trace' not duplicating onto the critics' plates.
(If you don't know what I mean-- go checkout the log on June 13 (day154))
Like in real life, some fillings are needed to cooked first, otherwise they're still under-cooked. You can also place the egg first if you want. Just try and experiment yourselves.
The right one, you can see that Ham & Veggies are from different bowls, but you can mixed them into the egg. In the meantime, like the egg, the fillings also can be cooked. FYI, the fillings that are not sticking onto the egg will not be served into plate.
One more thing, do you notice the fillings are a bit "transparent" over the egg?
That is because it's "soaked" into the egg.
In addition to the fillings, the eggs can now be defined if it's still watery or completely solidified, if you place the filling early it'll 'soak' into the egg nicely. If not, it'll looked like it's placed on top of the egg, and some picky critics will notice it.
Those are very good tips for you if you do play the 2nd demo! (not available)
Also, here's some screenshots of how the game looks now.
So that's it for now. I will post one more development log before the demo release. It will be about the opening screen & options, and also about the website hosting the demo.
Love ya & See ya!
