Unearthed Update: September 16 (Game Outline Updated)

20100716-TRL

I spent a good chunk of the weekend in the Toronto Reference Library working on the full game outline for Unearthed. Although it was essentially completed almost a year ago, Messianic and myself had updated a lot of the enemy encounters  in the game and I had to append the outline to reflect those changes.

I just finished updating the document a moment ago, so I will be moving on to the next phase of production very shortly.

In the meantime, here is an example of an enemy listing from the game outline. It may not be the most interesting thing (certainly not as cool as sprites or game maps), but it is a good example of background work that needs to be done to ensure the game comes together.
