Not gonna blame all of it on 2020 and the "human malware", but it did have an effect on my overall progress working on the game during this year.
Despite this, I did make some progress as did Unity Engine:
Migrated the project to use the new HDRP Render Pipe Line witch allows for more eye candy such as Volumetric Light and Planar Reflections and much more. It took a bit of tinkering to get back close to the visual style I was going for. Some gameplay related bugs were fixed and the conversation system is working as intended. I know I promised a playable demo times and times again.... but at this point I don't want to release anything "Half baked". I feel the overall presentation needs more work.
I uploaded a new screenshot of the revamped apartment with Volumetric Lights and Reflections. I will try to pick up the pace in 2021 if it allows it.
This is still one man project! Finding people willing to do high quality work for free is not easy.
Happy Holidays, Happy New Year and let's hope 2021 is better!
