Re: Zen: A Gay Sequel [BxB][School/Slice of Life/Dating][18+][Demo Available]

September started off well, but then the world and work got explode-y and my productivity tanked. Since I'm going to take this weekend as some recovery time, and then it'll be October, I'm posting updates a few days early. Also October and November are Bara Jam 2020 , so I likely won't make much ZAG...

Re: Zen: A Gay Sequel [BxB][School/Slice of Life/Dating][18+][Demo Available]

August was yet another good writing month. Writing: The first pass of writing is complete up to the in-game day of March 24. The game is now at 133,487 words, 12,541 dialogue blocks, and 305 menus. CGs: David got through inks of another CG (preview here ), but Wolfscade hasn't made significant progr...

Re: Zen: A Gay Sequel [BxB][School/Slice of Life/Dating][18+][Demo Available]

July was another good month for writing, but there's not too much to show off as a result. Writing: The first pass of writing is complete up to the in-game day of March 3. The game is now at 99,040 words, 9457 dialogue blocks, and 219 menus. CGs: Wolfscade has started initial planning for Malik's en...

Re: Zen: A Gay Sequel [BxB][School/Slice of Life/Dating][18+][Demo Available]

June was probably the most productive dev month since the demo was released, at least writing-wise. Announcements: The "put yourself in the game" donation tier has sold out, and my artist has started work on the two new sprites for Mike and Mark. I've started writing work for their storylines, as we...

Re: Zen: A Gay Sequel [BxB][School/Slice of Life/Dating][18+][Demo Available]

I just realized I forgot to copy May's status update here, which actually isn't too big of a loss because not much happened. (It was a bad month as far as the day job goes, and the world also seemed to get even more depressing, somehow.) As always, you can contact me on twitter , by PM here, or on t...

Re: Zen: A Gay Sequel [BxB][School/Slice of Life/Dating][18+][Demo Available]

It's the end of April, and I want to write an update post at the end of every month while the game is in active development. All updates of course apply only to the full version of the game (not the demo). As always, you can contact me on twitter , by PM here, or on the ZAGS community . Announcement...

Re: Zen: A Gay Sequel [BxB][School/Slice of Life/Dating][18+][Demo]

You're not wrong, but right now I just worry because I can't find it... :lol: It just makes it weird to be able to view it at some times but not at others. (And yeah, I'd probably just decompile it anyway; it's how I got Adam in YAGS...) And yeah, accessible from the menu makes the most sense, if t...

Re: Zen: A Gay Sequel [BxB][School/Slice of Life/Dating][18+][Demo]

I haven't finished it yet, but I was wondering if it's possible to access the stat screen at any time other than the weekly plan session? It is not possible at the moment, but it's something I've been contemplating adding to the full game. I'm a little worried it could cause action paralysis (you s...

Re: BaraJam 2019 - It's Back!

A bit belated, but the jam was a huge success this year! We ended up with 20 games (19 of which are free to play), and actually had some games that weren't Visual Novels: There's an adventure game, some RPGs, and a couple of action/clicker games in addition to all of the story-based goodness of VNs....
