I added skill (and item) menus to EPIC. It actually took me less effort than I was concerned it would. It even dims out skills you don’t have the MP to use.
The core engine is getting closer to completion every day, although I do feel an innate fear of working on it. Perhaps it’s that when the core is done I have to do the design, which I worry about being good because it will be the first game I’ve really done where level “design” will mesh with mechanics in this way.
But I will have only done it by doing it, so I need to push through. I want to make this, but it’s scary. I just need to accept that it will never be a financial hit, just something I am making because I want it to exist.
