Wyndia Project Update, 05-02-2014

I've spent the last couple weeks in Alabama dealing with a family situation, and I wanted to take a minute to update you guys about the Wyndia project.

I've been working on a lot of game world history, and the documentation of the various towers, characters from the past, and the discoverable journals of those characters.

The structure of my narrative is such that there's a primary story which is kind of like an episode of a TV show -- full of dialog, drama, and humor, with a short story arch that is basically a "day in the life" of my characters, and then there's a secondary layer of historical data which very much informs the primary story and deeply enriches the world of my fiction. Readers can "research" this data on their own time, or in conjunction with quests and developments of the primary story. Certain quests may send them on research missions. Others may be entirely self-contained within the daily narrative.

This all means there's a lot more up-front writing to do than for a traditional v-novel, but I think the payoff is that the world is huge, real, and deeply engaging. I'm proud of what I'm making, and can't wait to share more with you.

Project Update: The Archives of Wyndia - Into the Cloudline Original Soundtrack

If I've been overly silent about my visual novel project, The Archives of Wyndia, there has definitely been some great noise going on elsewhere. Mainly, from Leila 'Woofle' Wilson on our official soundtrack, which is now set to go on sale December 20th, in both digital and physical formats.

Leila 'Woofle' WIlson has added a teaser of highlights from our soundtrack to her Youtube channel.

Leila is using Bandcamp for her digital sales, so you'll be able to pick practically any possible lossless or lossy format you could dream of. Compact Discs are also available.

I can't say enough about what it has been like to work with Leila. Her music has been a source of constant inspiration, and her talent speaks for itself. I can't wait for the release of our soundtrack on December the 20th. You can hear more music from Woofle on her web site.
