Owner of the walkthrough here, I am recording a dedicated video walkthrough as a tool to assist with the completion of this game. I am almost through the drafting phase of the "script" (more like clusters of notes) and will begin the recording of a playthrough to provide visual guidance and commentary to help any way I can.

This all should be done relatively soon, but I will keep this area updated on progress in the meantime.

While I'm at it, my progress at the moment: I am done drafting the script for 6 of 9 stages in the game. The recording and editing process will take a day or two (maybe one day dedicated to each, who knows) and then I will take my script and draft a detailed written guide, which may also take a day or two depending on my work schedule.

It will be soon, though, I promise smile thanks to everyone for the time. toast

Okay, I'm finished with the general draft, recording has started. I have completed the recordings of the first 3 stages, but I'm calling it a night. Everything looks in order to finish the entire recording sessions by the end of tomorrow, and I might even get a few chapters of script done as well.

All recording is finished, working on editing together a presentable and easily followable guide as a companion to the written walkthrough smile

After a long string of setbacks, the first video is officially edited and is now being produced. Now that I have the format established, I should be able to crank out some more. I work later today, so it might not be the most productive, but Thursday is my day of toast

Unfortunately, recording commentary has become impossible for these videos at the moment. I should be getting a mic setup by Monday the 12th, but I will continue with editing through the videos and as soon as I'm done with that I will work on the written guide in the meantime. If I get finished, I will simply upload the videos without commentary and publish the guide, and will make a decision when my new setup gets here if I want to add commentary and re-upload the videos.

Unforseen setback, but we are well on our way to completion. Most of Thursday and Friday were spent on trying to understand and fix my audio problems. But editing continues toast

Here's the introductory video that includes the first chapter of the game, if anyone wants to see what the finished product will look like:

Quick question:

will there be an actual text format to your guide, or is more reliant on the video portion?
"It's not that I can, and others can't. It's that I will, and others won't."

The reason I'm putting so much work into the video set is because there are no trackers for collectibles in game, and also there are not many visual guides while playing.

The text guide I will be writing for TA WILL be in depth enough to use on it's own, but I would recommend using the videos as a companion walkthrough, because there will be text on screen as well as visual acquisition of the collectibles.

The written guide will be loosely based on my video script, with more visualization and detail so you aren't forced to use my videos if you don't want to smile

And, to update:

My mic setup came 6 days early, so the videos will have commentary after all toast

After this good news, I went back and re-edited the few videos I had already produced (not uploaded yet) to include the commentary.

And with that setback behind me, all editing is complete and am simply adding commentary before uploading the walkthrough to YouTube! laugh

The script will be transformed into my Written guide, and I will try and use my videos to capture images to assist in the written walkthrough.

Almost there guys!

Okay, for anyone who is waiting on the guide at the moment, the video portion is done. After multiple attempts to get commentary on my videos, unfortunately i can't manage to record audio that lives up to what I want.

Regardless, i'm not going to let these videos keep me from working on this written guide I've committed to. If I can find a way to get the commentary in later, i shall and make a second playlist. But for now here is a link to the playlist of videos: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLxqmXAAspkirZi_BJYyWI...
