Hey everyone, CykaDev here!

This is the first time I’m actually writing the news post directly on the website. How exciting!

Anyway, we’re not here to talk about the website. We’re here to talk about the visual novel: good news, because progress has been incredible lately! I didn’t know if I’d be able to keep up my new working rhythm in 2019, but it seems like I’m getting used to it: our stats have skyrocketed and I am proud to say we have completed about 21% of the game so far! Doesn’t sound like a lot, but when you realize this means about 193 000 words and 36 284 lines, it’s quite impressive!

One of the biggest parts of the game (the one that takes the most time to write, actually) will soon be completed: that also means I’m gonna have to do some thorough testing to squeeze out the bugs and the possible plot inconsistencies. I am going to suffer… No doubt there will still be some of those in the final release, so we’ll be counting on you to report them!

I’m really sorry for not showing more art: we really want to have something we’re sure of before actually showing it. In the meantime, the biggest part is getting done; replacing the sprites can be done in the final development stages!

I have confidence that a big part of the game (if not all the writing) will be done this year. I don’t know if we will release in 2019, but I do know the first (and biggest) part of the development could be achieved if I keep up this rhythm.

Thank you for taking the time to check out the weekly news! I’ll be seeing you next week for another post 🙂

    I really do like the unique artstyle you've gone for, watercolors aren't used as much as they should be. I wonder how the sprites will look... 😉

      Thank you! The sprites that will be shown on the next screenshots will be (very) early placeholders, but you can actually find one of the first iterations for one of our characters on our Twitter account :)

      I didn't like the art style at first, but after watching for a while I've come to love it.

    Eek, now add an email subscription option so it notifies us when an update comes out! If it’s possible for you, of course. ^^
