I've modified the structure of the first half of The Silent Column Part 1.
I'm trying to put more of a focus on Kina, April, and their mental illnesses. I rewrote the scene where Tashen meets April, after the fall: having Tashen, Serra, and Nithi react more appropriately to April's breakdown, and having her breakdown be more real. With more focus being put on Kina, more focus is also being put onto Tashen, since they've grown up together and are brother and sister.
I have parts for the second half written, already (having written a full route, earlier) and I'll try to blend the altered first half with what I already have written in the second half.
With the first half being structured the way it is right now, things can go in 16 different directions. That's a bit crazy... so I might widdle it down, a bit, not have choices in the second half, or end up blending things into fewer paths during the second half. I do like most of the 16 directions, though. We'll see how it goes.
As you've likely noticed, I put overlays over top of my artwork to add color and some noise. I've made a new kind of... overlay effect. It's pretty easy to make, and I've tested it out on a few pieces, already. I'm wanting to have images in the VN slowly fade from 1, 2, 3, and back to 1, with each cross-fade taking 10 seconds, or so. It gives an interesting dream-like effect, in my opinion.
That's it, for now. I'll see you all, later. :)
