NEWS & UPDATES

2017/03/30 - No rest for the weary

-----------------------------------------
Currently taking a short break while I catch up with lots of real-life stuff, so sorry for putting RMDL on hiatus no less. :/

On the plus side, I just completed a new review featuring Sentinel's X action figure! Thanks again for everyone's understanding!



2017/03/15 - (Not-so) subtle Art-work

-----------------------------------------
Long story short: Some keen viewers may have spotted the subtle change in design (visible hair aside), and I've been planning this payoff since Chapter 2 (though how exactly it would happen changed a bit along the way).

So at any rate, (formerly) cut content confirmed for RMDL!



2017/03/08 - Just too much of her parents in her.

-----------------------------------------
A discussion I had sometime earlier last month revolved around the Caskett/Casquet family, especially how the disappearance of Roll's parents may have affected Gramps and his possible reluctance in sending his remaining granddaughter off to danger.

With that said, I kind of like how the "hazy" effect came grainy and like a comic scan. Also due to Switch-related incidents (Breath of the Wild is AMAZING. Get it if you can!) I am going to have to hurry up with next page's Artwork! See you all next week!



2017/03/01 - Not going to Roll with the status quo.

-----------------------------------------
In the games, Roll's responsibility to watch over Rock during his digouts had two different titles; "Operator" in Japanese, and "Spotter" in English. While both are real terms in modern military linguistics, both are completely different roles, with the latter being part of a sniper team along with all the other combatants. With that in mind, I enjoyed expanding the terminology of the Halcyon Days era to allow for both terms and at the same time have some reason to justify putting Roll into the action in several parts throughout this retelling.

And that's the hard part: Giving enough plot justification to allow for this instead of making it shoehorned in with no prior justification. This sequence alone went through multiple rewrites, ranging from some shoddy plot devices to some that felt like in bad taste (especially what the majority of the fanbase thinks of this Roll).



2017/02/22 - Here Comes A New Challenger! (1)

-----------------------------------------
I was asked this a few times, and thought I'd share my thoughts on the latest page.

I remember playing the first game and right after (FINALLY!) defeating Bon Bonne with the cutscene that plays. Right when I regain control of Rock and reach the door, Roll says that she's coming as well. At first I thought she would be joining the fight as an NPC that can hold her own, but in the end it just turned out to be "Oh look at this pretty van I made from stolen parts, come back when you need me hahaha".

With that said, I simply want to make things interesting by giving her a bit more action!
