Creating a running quest journal.

When the opportunity to add a running quest log came along, at first I thought it wouldn’t be necessary. But we gave it a try anyway. I immediately felt my doubts ebb away. The journal makes for a nice benchmark at every point throughout the game. Getting used to how the text gets imputed was a bit of a challenge. It was a bit of a convoluted process. But the ingenious decision to write all of the journal entries from Auggie’s point of view really seals the deal. It fits Auggie’s character as he clearly would keep a journal. And now there is no fear of adding too many quests and content that would cause any risk of the player having trouble keeping track of their progress. A bonus addition is the pop-up windows containing quest updates. So overall we created a fantastic component here.
