It is nearly one year since my last post here. So much has changed. Steamdance is currently under a development break, while Beyond the Mirror has been developing almost by itself, and is now through an intensive, exerting and very encouraging betatest stage.
Since this blog is lost in the waves of the internet sea, I've been presenting this project elsewhere, where it might have some more visibility: http://story-games.com/praxis/comments.php?DiscussionID=389
I'm very grateful to the guys who playtested the game, helped me seeing what does and what doesn't work. All in all, the situation is very positive and encouraging. Unlike Steamdance, the direction is rather clear, and the game probably won't need extensive, radical changes in its setup like Steamdance still does.

Steamdance is currently in standby. I realize that all I had been calling betatest version weren't even deserving the title. Now the game still does not work, so for the time being, I'll let the ideas for this title aside for a while and concentrate on another project that came to my mind during a lazy day at work. The new project is called Beyond the Mirror, and deals with the authenticity of memories. You'll hear about it from now on. Suffice say that the main inspiration comes from Ridley Scott's masterpiece Blade Runner.
