If you’ve been following my twitter feed you’ll know that I’ve been spending my free time working on The Lucidity Campaign for Artemis. This project requires that I stretch every skill I have to new limits and I’ve been loving every minute of it!

One of the things I’ve had to create is a starchart so the crew can decide what area they want to explore next. I thought it would work best if it was interactive and this is what I’ve come up with.

The above link is a proof of concenpt beta. There’s not any content yet because I wanted to get the program working properly first. The coolest feature is that all of text and audio is loaded outside the program and that means it can be change without having to recompile it in flash.

When the game is over and the show is out I can release the entire campaign as a module other players can use without having to know how to code. I may also output it has HTML 5 so it can work with iOS devices.

To me this is VERY cool!

Now that it’s complete I’ll be writing the script and getting someone else to record dialog. I’m not sure when that will be done but most likely by next week or so.

Let me know what you think.
