Another year has come and gone. That means we have before us a new year with some big projects. I would like to go over some of the plans for this collection of websites then see what everyone else would like to see. Be aware that this list only includes big projects, not minor interface tweaks or bug fixes.
Both DSiPaint and Spriter have many updates remaining, such as naming and tagging artwork.
The game Risky is still coming whenever I get a chance to develop it. The final release will probably be on 3DSPaint.com, too. It may also see a release for WiiOperaSDK. Risky will be a multi-player turn-based game, like the board game Risk, that lets players take on the roles of Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft, and Apple. The "armies" compete for a monopoly on 3 flagship products in all stores across a city.
The new game show app is still coming. A host will run the game with 3 active contestants and unlimited spectators. All involved parties will represent themselves with Saviis.
The Mystical Journey
TMJ will have at least two more demos for the Nintendo DSi. The first will be a cinema sequence for part of the story in Chapter 1, presented in similar manner to the intro of LoZ: The Wind Waker. The second demo will be another presented in the manner of Teaser 3.
Saviis contests are still coming. They will be similar to the Check Mii Out Channel on the Wii. Also, editing of Saviis was partially done but never completed. That is still coming.
The weekly surveys will be placed into an app that Survey Admins help to moderate since I am running out of ideas.
As many of you know, I started working on 3DSPaint.com a little while back. It was nothing more than an exact copy of DSiPaint.com with a few different stylesheets.
This weekend I have begun working more on the website to bring it to the final form for late March. Graphics are the first step I am taking since many of the core features will be unchanged from DSiPaint.com at the moment (until I know the capabilities of the 3DS browser).
3DS Opera SDK
Everything from the DSiPaint app is coming to 3DSPaint. Plus, I will add editing, filters, copy-and-paste, and many other modern features of paint programs.
Come on, you knew a sequel was inevitable. More details will come soon.
The Mystical Journey
The final game will be released on the new browser. The release date is unknown. If you want to be part of the team, let me know. We're starting to ramp up production again. I will be designing the final game engine later this month, scrapping the DSi one. Once the Nintendo 3DS comes out, I will tweak it for speed and capabilities. I plan to make the entire engine canvas-based, which will allow zooming, rotation, parallax scrolling, and more!
I don't currently know the emailing capabilities of the Nintendo 3DS. If it can email like the Wii, then I will set up an account link to "twiit" directly from email like you can do on the Wii. Otherwise, it will be similar to the Nintendo DSi (which it will support, anyways). I plan to add other enhancements to the website, too, that the Nintendo DSi Browser was too slow to handle.
There will be a Nintendo 3DS version of HB Online Lite. The version will be more in appearance to the Wii version with canvas-based graphics and real-time display of other players.
Wii Opera SDK
Wii Opera SDK used to be my most updated Nintendo-related website until DSiPaint exploded beyond all expectations. Thus, Wii Opera SDK has been left in the dust at times. I do plan on bringing some of the interface more up-to-speed with DSiPaint on the website, including real-time status updates and more.
The new survey app will be added to the website, as with the others.
Okay, let the ideas flow!
