Depends, when you thought it would be out? :lol:
My expected release is still Q1 2017, which could even mean March 2017. I have no clue how long the beta will last or how much time will take me to code or balance the rest, since is a new game genre for me (crafting/sim). But it's true I made quite some progress during this month! :)

Could you shrink it to five balls of light/dark/neutral for the romances and shove it under the hearts? It's helpful to know the scale (I think), but it doesn't need to be as granular as the main character's.

For the romances it only matters on a scale of 5 indeed:
Dark + / Dark / Neutral / Light / Light +
Maybe looks better just with the text though. I'll also try with different colored portraits borders :)

:lol:
Well I released Seasons Of The Wolf a few weeks after Dragon Age: Inquisition. Hard to beat that I think! :mrgreen:
Anyway, I'll try to finish AMS sooner this time!

I don't think there is many as expected games as MAss Effect Andromeda I mean it is more like SS game rather then AAA so I would really suggest avoiding to release Amber at a same time.

And when talking about MAss Effect Andromeda did anyone notice that they stole Winter Wolf's idea for male/female protagonist being brother and sister :lol:

used the suggestion from twitter to make the character border color match the alignment, so it's even more noticeable. It's still crowded but managed to show the crafting skills and also 3 main stats (Morale, Energy, Reputation). Currently they would work like:
- Morale: when it's high, bonus to potions skills. Also bonus to the relationship increase during dates
- Energy: obviously need to be high to do potions but also other things (gathering, etc). If you don't sleep enough, this value will be low :)
- Reputation: already discussed, it's a sort of meta-score to unlock certain activities/recipes/workshop improvements

Now comes the hardest part: I need to put everything together and make sure it's still fun to play :)
