First off we’d like to announce that our sprites are getting a complete overhaul courtesy of our new sprite artist, darkenmarr! Don’t fret though, just because they’re getting some new looks, their overall design will stay the same. Here’s a little preview of Gwyn and Connor (minus his eyepatch) sketches.

We plan to update the sprites on here one by one as soon as they are completed.
Until we get all the sprites remade in darkenmarr’s style, the asks we do on the tumblr will still be using our old sprites for the sake of continuity.
So far, we have 21 background pieces finished with our BG artists currently working on another three backgrounds at the moment. We have all the backgrounds for our demo and most of the backgrounds for the first main story.

Because our original GUI concepts shared some similarities with another game that was released, Justin and I are re-sketching our GUI design. We hope to show a mock of this very soon.
Writing wise, we have one main story completed and another that only needs choice commands and sprite changing notes. We believe that this story is about 90% completed. Justin is currently writing Gwyn’s epilogue while I’m fixing Rory’s main story as I found some issues in the plot.
Due to some circumstances outside of development, we are still currently in our Prototype stage. We don’t plan to let this affect our schedule of our release for the demo and the game.
The person we’ve been talking to about music samples has been having some issues with ideas for it, so he has dragged a friend into helping him. We are hoping to get some sample work from them at some point. If anyone is interested in doing our music, you can drop us a line since we haven’t locked anyone into this position yet.
We’ve also started a Patreon to help with funding while giving back to our fans. I know that the kickstarter links can’t be posted on the forums unless there’s a demo, so I’m figuring posting Patreon links follows the same rules. If people do want to help us out, please visit our tumblr for the link to our Patreon.
We are also in talks with our new sprite artist to sketch out our asks from our tumblr and loading them up on tapastic. This is still in talks, but it is something we are excited about trying.
