This guy is still coming at you.
The story is told. The Scout’s Journey plot is fully developed. The synopsis is 13 pages.
The full script, including dialogue and gameplay and audio logs, is near 200 (compare 120 pages for a typical film script), but the final bricks that fell into place during writing the synopsis still need to be put in. The game has no more than 12 audio logs, but they are slightly longer than usual. The beginning was recently rewritten again to let the player have control of Scout in under five minutes (now stop nagging, John Walker). Cutscenes will be skippable after watching once.
Pending new feedback or ultra-amazing ideas, this is a major milestone.
This part of the game really is back-breaking work. I’m finished.
