You might be wondering: where's week 2? Well - I skipped it because I didn't get a whole lot done. This is the next Big Update, as far as I'm concerned.
So what have I done since last time? Mostly art.
I've drawn a ton of fish on paper, and I've started painting them in photoshop to actually add into the game (see below!). I've got photos for almost all the backgrounds; still need to edit a few of them (as shown below). I also need to track down a few misc backgrounds. I've been working on GUI as well, I've got frames but not fonts, and I've got sketches for the fishing minigame but I haven't actually got them in-game yet. I've also started sketching character sprites, but I haven't finalised any yet. So...I've done a lot? But I still have a lot to go.

I've also started on the writing! Got a few big scenes done, but a few still to go.
Overall...it's the 19th, but I feel like I'm a little less than halfway through making the game. I'm definitely anticipating a big patch a few weeks into April to finish off the game, but I'm sure it'll be mostly done by the end of the month!
See you guys next week!
