(Post originally titled: Why Riddle Transfer 2 won't be done soon)
A lot of people have been asking when Riddle Transfer 2 will come out.
I don't know the answer to that question, but I feel the need to state the reasons why I know it will be a long time.
I have had a busy schedule recently. I just took a four-day trip out of town, and when I came back, my computer decided to break, completely ruining my plans to get anything productive done in Flash. Almost immediately after that, my family dragged me along on another trip, which is the one I'm on now, and my computer is not fixing itself. When I get back home from this trip, my wisdom teeth will be taken out, and I'll have to leave again to see my brother get married. When that's done, I'll jump into a busy school year, and that guarantees a serious handicap on the time I csn spend working on making Riddle Transfer 2.
I'd like to remind everyone that the development process for a game is long and arduous anyways. If I didn't have to be away from home so much, and if I didn't have any upcoming schoolwork to mull over, this game would still take months to make, taking into account all the research, the concept art, the puzzle-planning, the storyboarding, the dialogue, the backgrounds, the cutscenes, the effects, the programming, the debugging, the extras, the everything.
I appreciate the concern. I want this game done as much as those who have asked me about it. But it's honestly quite frustrating when people don't seem to grasp the time it takes to make something like Riddle Transfer. And on top of all that, I need to take my time. I'm under the risk of making a game with not enough creativity due to the nature of its setting. I'm under the pressure to make a game that meets the expectations the first game set. It can't just be a 'good' game, and as long as that's what it is, I won't release it.
So far, I have drawn a single room of Riddle Transfer 2. This is the same number of rooms I had drawn for Riddle University before I dropped the whole idea and turned it into the one-second slap-in-the-face that is Riddle School 4 due to the tireless requests for another Riddle School game.
I won't quit working on the Riddle Transfer series. Not with what I have in mind for it. But I just want to let you know, if you're wondering when RT2 will be done, it will be a very long time from now.
