This evening I fixed up the interpolation code I'm using to animate screen fades and flashes. Totally boring but worth it. Then I moved some of the camera code around so that when the player dies the camera doesn't abruptly stop moving but slows down as the screen fades out.
It doesn't look great. I'd forgotten how much time getting this stuff right takes. Maybe the camera should turn to face The Duchess?
Whole game is going through the UGLY phase. Have to keep believing its going to look good when its done.
