Polgannon Progress Report Feb 2023 - maxon - 11-02-23

(most hated man in Polgannon)

So Polgannon.  I’ve been doing a lot of work on it.  For those of you who have played the neighbourhood (and solved the crime! or tried to anyway), you might think it’s done and dusted and wonder why I’ve been working on it.


I’ve been thinking about this for ages and it has been something I’ve wanted to do for a long time.  Late last year, I finally launched a new project with Polgannon and its follow-up story Market Bannaby, to convert it into a new format.  I have some very modest financial backing to get me started.  This is going to be a sort of interactive story. 

The work I have done on it has been in developing the end of the story which was (naturally) left open-ended in the Sims version since what I was providing there a neighbourhood to play from the murder of Blaise forward.  Your own version of Polgannon, if you would.  I’ve also done a lot of work on the characters to develop their tales, especially Ruan and Margaret who were deliberately left somewhat blank as characters in the Sims version.  And I have been working on the supernatural theme for the story (yes, there was one) which got somewhat lost in the Sims version because I couldn’t work out how to make it work in the Sims neighbourhood.  It’s the same story but a fuller, more thoroughly realised version of it.


I don’t want to say too much about it all at the moment as I’m not sure I can even do this.  But I’ve been having an awful lot of fun planning things and writing stuff.  The aim is to produce something commercial (though I’m hardly expecting it to make my fortune).  I have even set up a Patreon page for the project (NB I am NOT currently looking for Patreons but will post the link later if you’re interested.  I’m not sure I’m going to use Patreon anyway since it doesn’t allow for a zero cost basic level membership).  There’s probably going to be a dedicated website down the line too.  For the time-being though, information about Polgannon will be posted at tflc in this section and also on my Polgannon tumblr here.

There, I did it, I finally made The Annoucement
