Cascade Quest size compared to other SCI0 games

I just thought it would be cool for me to look at.
- Interesting the huge amount of text for Laura Bow compared to the others
- Still have only about half the "pic content" of a typical Sierra game (KQ4 is inflated because day/night scenes).
- Fairly close in text content (which surprises me), but only about 50% of the script content. I'm guessing that's because I haven't coded a lot of interaction details (like coding up an animation sequence for giving an item to someone, or something like that).

Are you secretly me and/or openly bored? Cos that's exactly the kind of statistics gathering I engage in when I get bored.

I wouldn't say quite bored... more than I'm trying to measure how epic in scope the game is compared to Sierra's - as some indication of its value, how much people would pay for it, etc...

There is a tool for this kind of thing in Omer's stash, btw. It's called resmix. The 1988 (i.e. SCI0) version is rather barebones and doesn't recognize PATCH resources (so it says "x bytes of <EOL>"). The 1992 version (i.e. SCI1.1) provides more comprehensive output.

Interesting. I could probably make SCI Companion spit out that info when rebuilding too.

Number of Script object instances:
LB1:   459
SQ3:   278
CQ:   121

... somewhat corroborating my point that Sierra games have a lot of detailed "scripted" interactions.

lol, no worries, it's not a bragging contest, I'm just using it to keep track of the size increase, and to get a rough idea of the scope of my game vs the Sierra ones.

My numbers are still a bit fudged anyway... many pics are just rough placeholder line drawings, wireframe test rooms, or old art.
