I think EBF5 is probably around half finished now!
Most of the battle system and animations are done. I’ve still got the bosses and summons to program, and a bit of debugging to do there. Equipment, skills, and most items are done.
What’s left is mostly out-of-battle stuff now: Map art, maps, NPCs, dialogue, battle backgrounds, lots of menus, translations, setting up battles and treasures, and all that. And testing and balancing, of course.
I would have liked to be at this point around 2 months ago, but I guess I’m not very far behind considering all of the stuff that’s slowed me down. I’ve been at it for 14 months, and I’d like to get it done in 24. We’ll see how that goes.
