Sorry for the long absence. We’ve been quietly working on both DMD and the new game, and today I’d like to share with you the new release date for DMD v.017.
DMD v017 will be released on February 14th (Valentine’s Day) 🙂
Also, this week:
- I’ll be sending my January patrons DMD CH.1 and DMD CH.2 v0.16.5, both uncensored and without the bullshit patch via email.
About DMD CH.2 v0.16.5
My original plan was to release this update in January, so that it would have given you the time to catch up with the game before v0.17. This update solves the transferring system for those players who played v0.14.5. Unfortunately, with the whole Patreon fiasco, I had to put this update on hold and couldn’t release it in time. If you have played 0.16, your old saves won’t work anymore ☹ That’s why I was planning on releasing it a few days before 0.17. But this will be the last time that you’ll encounter this error since updates from now on will consist in content only.
About DMD CH.2 v0.17
We resumed work last week and we thought it would be best to include a few more scenes that weren’t originally planned for this update. And I’m quite sure you would have enjoyed it more than the previous version that we had planned 😊. That’s the main reason for the delay. Given that after we release v0.17, we will have to focus on the new game, DMD won’t be updated for a while so I thought maybe we should include some of the content that was going to be included in v0.18
The new Game
We will start focusing our energy on the new project after we release v.17. We have some ideas already and I’d like to share them with you:
- It will be a VN, just like DMD. A romantic, slow corruption VN.
- You’ll play a middle-aged man who will date younger women.
- A better story, or at least a more organized one.
- It won’t be as long as DMD. We estimate that the game will take us a year and a half at most to complete.
I will be releasing a few previews on Patron this week, once we get the approval from their Community and Guidelines staff (they want to see that the new game doesn’t contain incest and that is not related to DMD basically, but they have taken their sweet time to review the content…)
About a dummy project:
Many people suggested me to create a dummy project: an image set or a small game to convince Patreon that I’m working on something while I focus on DMD. Unfortunately, they already told me that I can’t collect funds to support DMD, so the dummy project is a no go. In fact, I suspect they are expecting me to do exactly that to ban me. It’s too risky and I won’t take the chance.
We will play by the rules and develop a game the way they want that will also hopefully satisfy your tastes.
So, that’s basically what’s happening guys. We will finish all the content we had planned for this update (v0.17), and then we’ll focus on the new game for a while.
Until the dust settles we have no other choice but to comply with Patreon and wait. We don’t want to rush the ending of the game either. Maybe a good Patreon alternative may become available in the next few months, who knows? But for now, we want to play this carefully and not make any rushed decisions that could mean the end of our games.
It’s you the fans that keep us going, and if DMD had been completed already, this new project that we’ve begun working on would’ve been the game we would have followed up with. So due to the unfortunate circumstances, we’ve started on it a lot earlier than we have previously planned! But we also hope that you will support us on our new project or at least try it out to begin with.
Thanks for your continued support,
IMPORTANT: Please do not post any questions, links or comments that relate to DMD on your Patreon wall anymore. If you need to know anything about the game, post it in my comments section here on this website. Thanks!
