Soul Saga Alpha Screenshot 1 This is a dump of the Dev Diary I have been hoarding for the past 31 days.  This diary does not contain the thousands of hours I've previously spent learning how to create Soul Saga ( both art and programming related), the human resource management I've had to do with the various people I've outsourced from, the previous version I was working on, or basically any of the other crazy stuff I have to do to get this game done.  This only measures my time spent from the first day I began coding the build that will lead to the final Soul Saga product.  I also didn't log human resource time (labeled Project Management in the diary) until a few weeks in.  Since it sucks up so much time to test and give revision feedback, I eventually found it necessary to include it in the diary.  I plan to include a screenshot in every Dev Diary. I will not use last names of contractors I work with for the benefit of their own security. The formatting is (from left to right): Total days into the project. The date. The Day of the week. How many hours was spent working on Soul Saga this day. The total hours spent on the project so far. This month I have averaged 71.5 hours a week working on Soul Saga. Currently the formatting of bullets does not work well with my Wordpress theme, so I will try to fix that in the future so that the bullets are more organized.
