Good morning/evening to all of our supporters.
Here we are, just over halfway through 2021 and we’re also a fair way into developing our third VN – SUNSHINE LOVE!
About this update
We’ve spent the past six weeks, writing, rendering, coding, creating walkthrough’s and adding in some bonus renders to make Version 7 of SL, which we’re confident in saying is, our BIGGEST update yet!
As it stands, six weeks to work on each update of SL seems to be the perfect amount of time for us to cover everything we need to for each version we put out.
Thanks to everyone for e-mailing or posting errors/bugs that they’ve found on either of my pages or on the fan discord. We’re pretty confident that they’ve all been fixed now. But if they haven’t, then please let us know and we’ll get to those along with any more errors that you find in v7.
One question we always get asked is just how many of the ten love interests will feature in each update.
That usually varies with each release depending on where we go with the story, but normally we aim to have four or five girls appear for each version that we put out.
The preview pics we post up each Sunday is usually an indicator as to who will feature, but that’s not always the case 😉
Another question we get asked quite a lot is “when will we be able to do more” with certain girls.
This will vary depending on the girl. Some of them will be up for anything almost straight away, others you’re just going to have to be patient for a little bit longer.
Because we have such a big cast we want all their personalities to differ from each other and just maybe, you might be able to relate to one (or even a few) of them as you play through the story.
Not all of the characters can/will feature in every update, so we try and give a fair balance to all of them because we know that every girl has their own group of fans.
In this update, there will be another major event that you and your childhood friend will start to prepare for. Again, it will greatly benefit the hotel and you will have to work together to be able to take advantage.
You will also be able to reach Level 2 in this update, therefore, a new set of tasks will become available for you to check through.
During this update, the tasks will appear in the “Tasks List” in the Hotel Menu individually as each character mentions.
Don’t worry, there will be an on-screen notification to let you know when each task gets added to this list.
Again you will have some big decisions to make in regards to who you date and who you have no interest in.
For those of you who have played up until the end of the previous update, we know that you’re eager to find out how you, the MC will get out of the situation that you find yourself in.
How will Connie react, now that she has seen you and your childhood friend together in her bedroom, late at night?
What will be the repercussions of Connie’s father cutting her off after you and your friend hosted her birthday party at the hotel?
You’ll get to visit new places in Sunshine Bay and also see the town from a different perspective. But which characters will you spend time with, in these new locations?
V7 will answer these and many other questions!
Changes to this update
With regards to the main walkthrough, we have added a list of all the main female characters at the bottom of the walkthrough pdf,
where you can find out exactly when and in which scene you can get onto each girls’ path.
If you are already on a girls’ path, then there will be scenes with them in future updates where you can back out or jump off.
NOTE: Not all combinations will be possible by end of the game, given what we can or cannot do due to Patreon rules.
There will also be an option in the future where you can just be friends with your “Friend”, however, much like what we did with Melody, we may not implement that option until after the story-part of the game is finished. We’ll see how that goes though.
You’ll also notice that we’ve added some extra special sound effects to a few of the sex scenes in this update.
Let us know what you think of these new additions after you’ve played these scenes!
How to jump ON and OFF character paths
We have NOW added an option in the “Character Info” section for each character so that you are able to switch their paths ON and OFF.
That way it saves you from having to go back to the point in the game when each girls’ pathways begin, in case you are not already on their path.
To do this, all you need to do is:
– go into your tablet in the top-right corner of the screen
– select the “Char. Info” button
– under the “Characters Info” section, choose the character whose path you want to set to ON or OFF.
NOTE: Some of the characters may not have this option.
On the character profile pic, you will see that we have added a heart icon. Simply click on it (Red heart) to be ON their path, or to turn it OFF (Black).
The changes will not take effect until you start the scene after the one you are currently on, so be sure to make this change beforehand if you want to view or not view a specific scene.
NOTE: If you do change a character from OFF to ON, then you should be aware that the characters’ maximum points at the end of each update may differ from what we have stated in the Walkthrough.
Searching for Doughnuts!
For our $10+ tier members, you will return to looking for doughnuts in this new update. In the April release (v6), we had you all search for Easter Eggs instead.
When you locate the new doughnuts, it will unlock the next set of special renders.
Again, there will be plenty of new Peeping Tom images that you can view in V7 as well.
All up, there are 20 xnew Doughnuts to locate, and 21 x Peeping Tom images.
Can you find all the doughnuts in this update? If you have the Rewards Gallery walkthroughs, they will certainly help!
Rolling WIP’s + Animated Scenes (***SPOILERS***)(Available to $20 members):
You can see the full list here: https://i.ibb.co/2637bfx/content.jpg
So here it is, the brand-new update of SUNSHINE LOVE – VERSION 7! It is now available for you to download and play.
We really appreciate every single one of you for supporting us throughout the production of our three games to date.
The team and I would love to be able to continue making these kinds of games for as long as possible and having you all supporting and encouraging us will make that dream possible.
Whenever we get to the last week of working on any of our updates, we always wish we had more time to add in more scenes, more animations, or give more screen time to certain characters.
But unfortunately, that’s not always possible, and once we’ve set a deadline, we always try our hardest to have the update released on time for you all.
It’s something we do very well and much better than most! It’s a promise to you, our supporters, and one we always hope to keep.
You guys (and girls) are funding our projects, and in return, we want to keep to our word and to deliver our work on time, every time.
For the next few weeks, we’ll be working on our other game, and then once that has been released, we will re-commence work on Sunshine Love V8.
So that’s it for now. As always, please let us know your thoughts about this update and if you find any errors, please list them in the comments section below or post them in the #bug-reports-SL channel on our Unofficial Fan Discord. Some of my team members check that channel regularly.
All the best everyone, stay safe, and we hope you thoroughly enjoy the continuation of our third visual novel, “Sunshine Love”!
It’s been a pretty successful 2021 for us so far, and we’re hoping to finish the year with some even higher quality updates for you all with both of our games.
Take care of yourselves, and thanks for your support.
