Hello to all of our loyal fans from wherever you are around the world.
We hope you’ve all been well and that you are looking forward to Christmas this week and the upcoming New Year, as well as the release of the final version of “Melody” on Saturday, December 28th.
We’ll have more details and what you should expect in this final version on the day of its release.
But today’s post is all about our forthcoming third game, and to also let you all know of our proposed scheduling for 2020.
The first piece of news that we would like to share with you all is that the development of the new game will begin during the first week of January.
During that time, we will announce the game’s title and share with you our first previews.
However, the very first release of our new game will not be out until late March 2020. We believe we’re going to need at least two months to come up with a decent first version of the game.
There will be plenty of details and previews of the new game posted up between the start of January, and when the first version is released.
As for February, our plan is to release a new update of DMD.
So in other words, our schedule for the first three months of 2020 looks like this:
• January 2020: Start developing the new game. Release game’s title, description, update Patreon tiers and post up the first previews.
• February 2020: Release a new update of DMD.
• March 2020: Continue the development of the new game and release our first update.
April 2020 and beyond: Our idea is to keep working on one game at a time, like we’ve been doing for the past two years.
However, we will change the schedule to put more effort into finishing our first game. So, starting 2020, we will be releasing a new update of our new game once every two months instead of three.
We’re still not sure if we’ll be able to release an update per month of our new game, like we’ve been doing with Melody, since the new game will require more time to work on the renders (they’ll have higher resolution than Melody’s renders), so I’ll get back to you on this one once we release our first update, and by then I should have a good idea of just how much time it takes to complete an update.
The planning of Game #3 has been in the works for the past few months, with details, character creations, the plot and backstories having been discussed by myself, my main writer HearszAM, and our resident ideas guy Jeff Steel during that time.
We’ve somehow managed to flesh out several ideas despite having to manage and create updates for our first two games during this time as well.
As many of you may already know, if you have been following my work since Melody’s first release early last year, we weren’t afforded anywhere as much time as we were to create and release our second game. So that’s already a huge positive for us.
Something that we would really like to get back into the habit of doing is how we interact with you, our loyal followers, and as often as possible.
As we’ve previously stated, we make these games for you guys as much as we do ourselves, and we have also tried to incorporate as many of your ideas as we can into our games too.
So, with that, we would like to ask and invite you all to tell us: What would you like to see featured in our third game?
For those of you that have played either (or both) of our two games: What’s been missing from those visual novels that you would like to see featured in our next game?
Maybe it’s a style of rewards or galleries system that we haven’t implemented as yet, or perhaps a scene setting that we haven’t used, or is there a particular fetish (that doesn’t breach Patreon’s guidelines) that you would like to see featured?
Maybe it’s something you’ve seen from other games and want us to implement it in ours?
If there was ever a time to suggest what you would like to see in our new game, then that time is NOW!
Thanks so much for your time and support. Take care of yourselves over Christmas and New Years.
