I’d like to start off firstly by giving you my apologies for the lack of posts regarding any updates on the future of DMD.
My team and I have spent pretty much every day of the past month and a half, working on my new visual novel “Melody”.
I’ve only just received clearance from Patreon that our script and walkthrough abides by their recently changed rules and regulations, and we are good to go to release it.
I sincerely hope that you will at least give our new game a try, and will help me promote Melody to those who you feel will be interested in my work.
As I’ve always said, without your ongoing support, none of this would’ve even been possible.
Which brings me to the news I’m sure plenty of you have been looking forward to reading from me…
We will start working on Melody v0.0.2 after this week’s premiere release on Friday. Then once v0.0.2 is released, we will START WORK ON v18 OF DMD, which we are hoping to release around the END OF MAY!
Our intention is to release two episodes of Melody (Friday and one next month), then one of DMD (v18) in May. Then we’ll go back to work on Melody in June.
It’s not ideally how we want to do things, but until we find an ideal platform we can use and it contains a consistent, secure and reliable payment system (monthly, like Patreon), then this is the way we will do things for the time being. Moving to the right platform is pretty much the only thing stopping me from going back to making DMD each and every month. I hope that by the time DMD v.18 gets released, a new platform will be available but I sincerely doubt that.
Even creating and releasing Melody one month, and DMD the other is another option I’ve looked at. But we’ll see how things go.
I know plenty of you just want to see DMD continue, and have feared that the end of the game will not eventuate. So the point of this post is so I can lay those fears you have to rest.
I’ve said previously that I will finish DMD no matter what, and I fully intend to keep that promise. It just won’t be as simple as I had hoped it would be. But in order for us to get to a conclusion, I’ll need your ongoing support for both games.
Of course, if circumstances change during this year, then so will our plans. They could be good or bad, we can’t say for certain which of those it will be. Maybe both.
Finally, I ask that you continue to support me with your ideas, feedback, and (constructive) criticism as you normally have in the past.
If you would like to donate to the DMD cause, you can do so at:

Please only use these links to support each of my games.
Lastly, one of our main ideas guys “Jeff Steel”, has his own Tumblr page where he posts about the writing and development of adult games – not the coding, but the characters, character development, plot structure, scene dynamics, dialogue, internal dialogue…As well as discussions of how coding, rendering, and art all interplay with the “script writing”..
You can find Jeff’s post in the “Jeff’s Blog” section at the top of the page. Feel free to leave him some feedback or any questions you might have regarding DMD.
Thanks for your continual support,
I’ll let you know how you can get DMD v.18 in late April/early May. We’ll talk soon 🙂
