Gonna try to start getting back into updating this thread! Finished another background. Here's a few teasers:

That makes 3 out of 13 backgrounds I want to do for chapter 4! We'll see how many make the final cut though. In other words, my patreon is live! Support AC's production here: https://www.patreon.com/user/creators?u=12763640

I've started up commissions again now that I've left my previous job and started grad school, so updates might get a bit slow, but I'll do my best! Thanks for the continued support!

Re: Arena Circus [GxB][BxB][GxG][Fantasy] Now with patreon rewards!

#247 Post by minyan » Sun Dec 02, 2018 7:58 pm

Hello! I always forget to update this thread.

The chapter 4 beta has been released and is available to all patrons (https://www.patreon.com/minyanstudios). Currently it's just the first day, I'm working on adding the second in. I have a couple more CGs to finish before that happens. On another note, it's finals week so I might not be able to do much until that's taken care of.

Cheers!

Hey guys! So, the patreon has been going well and the discord channel is live! Chapter 4 is coming along well too. I have the first two days available in beta form for all my patrons. I've started drawing another sprite, and a new background is in the works. Sorry I don't update this thread more often, just so many places to update!

Hey guys! Another update to the chapter 4 beta is coming soon. This update will include over 20,000 words, give new backgrounds, two CGs, and this cutie here! All patrons of Minyan studios can play the beta right now (https://www.patreon.com/minyanstudios), and the full update will be coming very soon! This update will handle all the backgrounds needed, which means all I have left to do is writing the freedom scenes, programming, and testing. Every time I give a tentative deadline I can never make it, but I think it’s safe to say Arena Circus chapter 4 should be finished by early May!

Hey guys, I'm back! Nano went super well, the project turned out great: https://minyan.itch.io/mnemonic-devices
And I've started working on AC again! I have about 6,000 words of freeroam done and have incorporated the mealtime mechanics. You'll be able to choose who you have breakfast, lunch, and dinner with, so pick your favorite character and spend some quality time with them! The romance able characters will have special scenes.

I almost never come on Lemma anymore Dx

But just in case anyone still checks this thread, I'm going to try and give monthly progress updates at least.

Here's what's been going on.

I went through a bit of a slump in May and didn't get much done, but I'm working my way back up. I'm working on a new release of the AC beta that will include the first of four weeks of free roam. The UI and coding is all done, all that's left is to write the scenes. There will be two new CGs, as well. There are some CGs missing, but I'll be adding those in in subsequent beta updates.

I've also adjusted my patreon rewards from 4 tiers to 3, and added in some new stuff to the tiers.

I post teasers and screenshots on twitter and tumblr, so feel free to follow me there for a more in depth look at the project!

Here's the monthly public patreon post, updated:
Hey guys, it's that time again!

I've written a ton of new scenes for the next update! So far there's:

3 Avril scenes

1 Lucy scene

2 Fenris scenes

1 Siegfried scene

2 Santana scenes

1 Aldrich scene

1 Natalia scene

3 jobs

Leaving me with 6/11 scenes and 3/3 jobs complete! I also want to do a couple more outfits, but I do have a few finished! Check it:

This is a special outfit that'll be available in AC golden
Screen Shot 2019-08-15 at 10.59.32 PM.png
And one more is unlockable through a ch 4 scene!


And that's it for this update! I'm hoping to get the beta update out early September.

Any requests for clothes? Comment below!

Hey guys, I’m out of town for this weekend but wanted to keep you posted. I’ll be putting my devlogs here every week now too to make sure my Lemma peeps can get updates.

The next update is super close to being done! I just have two more scenes to program, and then I just have to do some testing. In the meantime I might add in a few more smalll things. I’m hoping to release the next beta update by 9/15! It’ll be available for all patrons.
