Thrilling Tales: Update on The Toaster With TWO BRAINS

The Toaster with TWO BRAINS, in progress

I know it can quiet when I’m busy over here, since ‘busy’ brings on my sophisticated system of Tunnel Vision. This means that I’m not too well aware of anything else. But when my blog gets sort of empty and echoing that’s usually a sign that a whole heck of a lot is going on. Which, it turns out, has been the case.

I’ve finished the script for Part Two of The Toaster With TWO BRAINS and I’m liking it a lot; as the second act of the story it’s got a lot more action, for one thing, as things become more clear and more frantic at pretty much the same time. I’ve followed the "narrower, longer" style of story branches that I described earlier and the result is that you can read through the story from several viewpoints at different stages; and while there aren’t usually as many options to choose, the options that are there lead to very different events within a story that still arrives at the same place at the same time.

I like it a lot; hopefully you will too, though because of the time I spend on the illustrations you won’t be seeing it for roughly a year.

I’ve finished entering the story data in the form the web site needs, and today I’ve completed the images and HTML for all the new inventory items. There’s about two weeks on my calendar before I go back to the illustrations for The Lair of the Clockwork Book – so I even have some time to make a start on the Two Brains illustrations before that happens.
