Happy New Year all!

Just wanted to share some updates with some of you who have been asking about the game's progress!

Unfortunately, due to my obligations with finishing my last semester of college, time spent with family, etc etc., the "Winter" demo has been offset just a tad! The likely release date has been pushed back to probably mid-January/February! I hope you all can understand. ^-^



In fact, I'm currently weighing the pros and cons of even releasing a demo at all, or simply holding off for the finished product. Mind you, this is an entirely new experience from what you may have played in the past. While the story and characters have remained, every facet of the project has been extensively recreated from the ground up... every map, cut-scene, and line of dialogue. This is mostly what's caused the lengthy development time. However, we've finally pushed through to the point where new dungeons and content is being generated in tandem with the old, which is exciting!

And perhaps just as exciting, I've managed to convince Lily Kat to return to the project! Her input to the game has perhaps been nearly as important as my own, as she's beautifully fleshed out my characters with her incredible talent! Lily has now agreed to return and draw the rest of the character portraits/backgrounds, as well as miscellaneous promotional art. (This of course takes a long time as well, so it'll be released gradually!)

Here's a peek at some of the work she's just done:


A scene with John & Zach practicing early in the game.

And just to reiterate, I'm still looking for 2 or 3 more 'testers' to give input on the demo if anyone is interested. (I'm looking for extensive feedback.) The bugs have mainly been worked out, but general/structural critique is always welcome!

If I can look back at 2014 as the year I returned to the community, hopefully 2015 will spell the completion of my game! Lol after many many years.

Have a great New Year!

Finally! I can't wait! :D You are extremely lucky to have such an amazing artist working for you. I don't know how good I am as a tester, so I'll sit it out, but I will be feverishly anticipating the demo!

Yay! You can still rely on me as a tester if you want, BlindMind. That art looks amazing O_O. Looking 4wd to release!
So you decided to wait :) with how huge and immersive this game is, I completely understand that! Beautiful artwork as well to compliment the beautiful in-gameness, loving it bro, keep it chugging!
Looking forward to the new demo. This is one of the few games I have subscribed to and I liked the old demo back then. Definitely going to play it.
