Update 04: My apologies for another delayed update. Mid-February should have been:
Prototyping: Inventory, Items, and Equipment oh my! They work, huzzah. Party system is 95% complete, currently working on a swap function for party members rather than having to Remove and Add one by one.
Sadness: The last month involved packing up my apartment in a hurry, moving/driving to the other side of the country, and then spent a few days with mom... before she passed away on 03/10. To say the least things have been hectic. I honestly thought I would have at least a couple months with her, so I have some things I need to work out before I can re-evalute the Demo release date (again, blame the universe, I certainly do).
Like I mentioned before, this won't stop me from working on this project, I'm still motivated to complete it as mom wanted me to. Sorry for making this depressing! No need for sympathies, just a little understanding for delays.
