Ah, finally. I prefer the loli moe art you used before. But oh well, can't complain since this is also good. When will it ready to roll out?

BTW, is that a typo in lemma3.png? "Follus us" shouldn't be "Follow us"?

I look at some fandom-related blogs through Planet EVN, so I heard about Sunrider. Today, after I saw your post, I took a few minutes to read about your current plans. They are impressive: thousands of words of text, a morality system based on notions of heroism, a total of eight heroines, a presentation similar to "...modern, Akibahara-style galge...", all with "...an operating budget of zero dollars..." (both quotes from your intro on Deviant Art).

So yeah, it seems kind of amazing that you're willing to release the final version of Sunrider for free. This could easily be an indie game. Perhaps it could have paid DLC. Or do you want to add this to your resume before working on commercial projects?

I'm usually not a fan of anything themed around mecha, but I really like the concept of this! Especially the part where you have to make heavy moral decisions, I'm really curious to find out what those situations are in the game!

This looks really cool! Too bad it's 18+, or is there an option to turn off mature content for this one?

I've been waiting for a solid mecha EVN, and this definitely looks to be it!

I've been waiting for you to make a thread for this! Is the game still going to have
eight pursuables still or have you trimmed it down to three?
(I have no idea if that could be considered a spoiler or not but better safe then sorry?

I also remember seeing you finished writing the script on your twitter. Are you 100% done with it or are you still editing?

Eheheheh... Well, it's good to see a thread of this! To think I'd actually catch it on its first day when I'm actually online :lol:

I'll be looking forward to reading this when it's done. The girls look cute to, which is always a plus. We've got to talk again some time, either before or after (more likely that) I get back from Japan. Or heck, maybe I should just message you, or something :lol:

Of course, if we talk, there won't be much to discuss on my end, as I've not made much progress on my end :'D

Ooops. I fixed the typo. o_o

No ETA on release yet. There's still a lot of work to do. :(

There are no plans for paid DLC, although the thought of being able to add new characters and scenarios (for free) after release is interesting. There will be merchandise for sale at our con appearances though. Cons are ******* expensive.

There'll be a limited all ages version after the full game is released, just like Homeward One Story.

There are still eight girls. Their pictures are either not drawn yet or acceptable for release. You'll see them all in due time. =w=

The script is complete, but is still being edited. I usually keep changing the script until the VN's released. The story's at about 100k words right now.

You know, what you should do is take a lot of background photographs while you're in Japan. Then you can just filter them for your game once you're back. Or at least that's what I did with Homeward.
