cheering gill :MCSM: by mesimu


MCSM fangame - progress check
(i do this as if anyone cares ahahhahah :'D)

so in making the game, as far as i know, there are three things i need to take care of- the plot/story, the visuals and sounds, and actually programming it

2/17/17 - Now if you want to be generous, I'm only about 5% done with writing the story. But honestly? I'm only at 2%. Maybe even 1%. (That or I'm just putting it at a really low level because I think it isn't much progress.)
it's more of like it's only now that I'm really making the plot? 'Cause back then I was working on the general idea, but the only things I was sure of were the events of what happens in Chapters 1, 2 and the final chapter. I had absolutely no idea on how things were gonna go. And I STILL have no idea how they're gonna go, 'cause I haven't had time to think about it. You know why?
School, that's why.

3/24/17 - so... it's going somewhere. Okay so for a while i've been thinking about this all wrong. I do have the main idea of the plot down (mostly. like.. 85% done), but the actual story, as in the scriptwriting, I have not done yet. I mean, I have, but uh.. they had to be fixed. And I was literally only three chapters in and even then, the chapters aren't that long. Plus there's the decision tree and ugghh
Anyway. So right now I'm almost done with the plot. All I have to do left is to figure out how all the characters tick.
It's a lot easier said than done.

Okay so for the visuals I know FOR SURE that I'll be drawing literally all of them (I mean unless I partner up with someone).
For sounds, I have found some sites that offer sound effects for free, then there are those composers who let their music be used without charge. So all I have to worry about is actually compiling the soundtrack and all those sound effects. Which should be done after I completed the story.
Unless anyone here would like to partner up with me for the soundtrack, but :I

2/17/17 - I have been learning from Ren'py tutorials and stuff, but I haven't been able to actually practice them because

but a big part of my worries is the copyright. 'Cause with what I'm doing, I'm not actually ripping anything from the original Minecraft: Story Mode?? but i'm still worried, despite one writer giving me permission and two people telling me that the game passes as Fair Use
still. still worried.
So I'm gonna ask TellTale directly if I can do the game. That.. That's actually part of why I haven't done much progress on the plot. 'Cause I'm worried that if TellTale says 'NO' to the game, all the things I've worked on would've gone to waste. And I don't like things going to waste.

So yeah, that's it. I think.
I think it's already clear how much i'm into making this fangame, right? I really want to do it. Badly.

here's to hoping that when i ask for permission, Telltale says 'yes'

Minecraft: Story Mode belongs to Telltale Games

Any advice / critique is welcome.
