National Videogame Writer's Month ended 15 minutes ago. My final status:
I do, at least, have one more release for you:
Extinguish v0.1 Alpha
I am not at all happy with the level of progress I made towards my goal. There still aren't even other humans, and the game crashes randomly near the end. Was this too ambitious of a project? I don't think so. I simply didn't work as hard as I needed to. Next year, I'll do better.
Neither of the other participants even got their projects started. I was the only one left at the end.

So what now?

I'm going to keep working on Extinguish. I want to see it in some near-complete form. At some point in the near future, I'll also be starting an unnamed platformer project borrowing heavily from an engine I've already made. More details when I have them.

So ends the first NaViGaWriMo. I hope to do this again next year, and get even more people involved. This journal will continue to exist, as a chronicle of my game development in general.

Good night.
