I have currently put D.A. on the shelf so I can focus my work on iPhone/iPod Touch games. I don't know for sure if I will return to this games code base as is or if I will just use its ideas and story to create a different version of the game such as D.A. Tactical Battle (see below).

I also have an idea for a sequel to D.A. which will have a distinction of having a different but somewhat familiar battle system. I am currently calling the game D.A. Tactical Battle. This game idea is taking on a more Pokemon RPG form the more I play Chrono Trigger on my DS. However, it currently doesn't seem like I will be working on D.A. Tactical Battle any time soon.

It seems like the original card based battle system version of the game is most likely not coming back, but the game it self continues to change in my mind especially with the battle system.



This is a list of the tasks and the order that I plan to work on when I start working on the game again.
