All right, they've done all they can, but the hard drive is completely dead, and there's no way they can get the data off it. It's seriously gone.
I'll admit, I wanted to cry a bit, but by the time I was alone and ready to do so, I no longer wanted to.
Which means it's time to figure out what my next move will be, because I'll be starting back over from part 5.
I will not have my own computer for a little bit more, so I need to find out what I'm going to do.
This is completely my fault, and I sincerely apologize to everyone out there who has been waiting patiently and eagerly for this release. I wasn't expecting this but it was the result of me being to lax with my downloads. I used search up everything I download before I do to make sure there was no viruses, and before the data was lost, I stopped doing that, I'm very sorry.
So, I'll leave the decision up to all of you. It's very important that you guys say what you'd prefer me do so I can decide what's the majority's wishes.
So here's my options;
I can either go back to work on Hetaoni from where I left off and just start over like I was doing from the beginning of summer. Note; I'm now out of vacation and going to be very busy. I've got Districts to think about, as well as my school work, after school work, my brother's wedding, and a potential job. I will most certainly not be able to stay up until two in the morning working when I get up for school at five. I'll have at the most five hours a day to work on it, excluding time I like to take to myself, and that's assuming I don't have anything after school to do.
However, the demo itself will be out sooner and it'll all continue as planned, just delayed for several months.
The other option is I can instead put most of my time into making improvements to the game. This includes;
Better maps (For example, something with a feel similar to this, just not the same hallway; dassyndikat.deviantart.com/art… )
More pictures (I explained this before I believe)
More features (I can browse through scripts and see what would be cool additions to the game)
Less glitches (Yes, I know about the England Piano Glitch)
Better Steve Sprite (I also addressed this in an earlier post)
An improved Title Screen (Same background, just a few improvements)
And probably a bit more.
As for the regular game, I'm going to probably work on getting that done during any vacation time I have. Thanksgiving Break, Christmas Break, Spring Break, heck even weekends I might start to work on it. And hopefully all the improvements will be done by Summer, so I can spend it working on the rest of the game.
However, the next demo will likely be pushed back to either whenever the improvements are done, or when I've finished the official game and am starting to work on my fan ending.
Please tell me what you'd like me to do because I feel like I need to put as much into this as possible and I want to please all of you waiting for it.
So what should I do?
