That's perfect, lovely stuff! :) Both has the old-timey tavern feel and somehow reminds me of the music from old Age of Empires games in places (which I should add is always a plus and a lovely nostalgia trip).

It's nice isn't it? ;-) I've received over a dozen tracks already, and they are all really lovely.

Yeah, beautiful stuff :) My main regret about only being a hobbyist developer is that I can even less afford to spend money on decent music/art for anything I do...

I am in the same boat really! We are looking at possibly getting financing down the road when we get closer to something that looks like a game.

Wow coming along great. I love the time of day atmosphere. The sunset coming in to the room looks really warming :)

Would there be any game play as you approach the inn? or is that just for setting the scene. Also do certain rooms unlock over time or is the whole thing available the moment you turn up?

Transitions are looking good too.

Looking forward to seeing your NPC's drinking their flagons of ale, and I'm guessing you'll need to add purchasables as well? Or would that be inventory based

Thanks very much. ;-)


Walking outside the inn will just be for setting the scene and hooking the player, introducing the situation with the broader world (war just passed through) without any expository dialogue to read.
However, I -might- have a scene before that where you are looting bodies on a battlefield. It might serve as a tutorial for stealing things from guests when they sleep later. (A tutorial because there is no fail state with a dead person... ;-))


That said, that area outside the inn will also be very useful just as a GUI for showing when people are coming. You'll know a trader is on their way, for example, because you will see the little wagon rolling up for a minute before they arrive at your door. Some special story events could also be shown there, like a company of soldiers turning up, or a blizzard coming through.


You will need to buy things to help keep the inn running. I'll be separating the trinket inventory (items you "find" or trade which might help with dialogue options, certain actions, or can just be traded in for coin), from the rest of the inns storage (foodstuffs, wood, candles, sheets etc.)


Here's the animation for the trinket chest in action. ;-)

With rooms, you will have access to all of them to start with, however they will need to be fixed up / furnished somewhat.

Sounds really cool.

Is the stealing part mandatory? Or have provisions been made for anyone that may just want to run an inn without resorting to anything nefarious

Stealing will be more or less mandatory, but as a matter of economic survival. You'll never be forced to steal from a particular character. How much you take, and from who, will be your choice. Ideally, it would be possible to survive while only targeting nastier guests, or those wealthy enough to be able to afford losing a little.
