:!: We're changing the face of "soundless" completely!! :!:

Everybody knows that denpa horror is dead and gone and the retro game scene is starting to die out too. So, to keep up with the times, we've decided to turn everything into a shallow ecchi comedy.

Here is our demo PV!



An official blog post about the change can be read here.

It's times like this that I want LSF to have a like button.

This April Fool's video was brilliant! XD Hahaha, also, it actually be really funny to see a legitimate spin-off comedy type of thing like that.

I'm glad you all enjoyed the April Fool's video, thank you for your compliments. I stayed up all night to make it though...which messed up my sleeping schedule...go me orz

The idea came from the first chapter of Subarashiki Hibi (Down the Rabbit Hole I) where the game's pretending to be a yuri SoL comedy before you trigger Zakuro's ending and unlock the actual story. It was a very cruel way to start off a very sad and creepy story once you looked at the chapter in hindsight...

So, this is essentially a lite version of that. April Cruel's. :3c

Update: we've moved from sketching CGs to full on drawing the CGs. Writing progress has slowed down significantly as a result, but it's better to have most of the CGs done now than to rush them all right before the release date.

You can view the previews of two new CGs in this blog post.

(Also, we have a new PR manager. Everyone say hi to curry!)

Re: soundless [Horror][Denpa][Kinetic] Coming 7/29

Weekly update! There's not much to show because everything that's been completed is in spoiler territory. A small CG snippet preview can be viewed on the weekly update here.

One important thing that's been done is that Nyn's hair has been fixed so it matches her sister's. I accidentally shaded her hair with the wrong color when I first made her sprite because of an eye dropper misclick. Normally I would've brushed this off and fiddled with the contrast a little, but because of the twins thing, it's a lot harder to hide it like that. I had to opt for a redraw and reshade since I flatten as many pieces of the sprites as possible when making them to save space and my eyes, which meant I was unable to simply lock transparency and recolor the shading.

Hey everybody! I'm not gonna lie to you: this week's update is incredibly boring thanks to the power of spoilers. All I can show is a CG sketch snippet.

Hi everyone,

Not much was done last week, and I apologize for that. I had a full blown kidney infection and the doctor told me I needed to slow down and rest with antibiotics.

You can read a full explanation here.

I've been working as hard as I can to bring you all a satisfying update, and it's finally here. It's many surprises - click to see!

We're almost at the programming stage...When we hit that stage, there will be nice game screenshots to look at.

I hope you're all as excited as I am <3 <3 <3

I'm sorry to hear that the release date had to be pushed back. :c That must have been extremely frustrating for you. But it's good that progress has picked back up again! I'm very excited to see the final product, I remember being super interested in this when I saw it last year.

Aaaah! Aaaah! We have to delay it for a week, but then I promise it's going to release for real. I'm serious. Better to have a good, thoroughly QC'd game out and survive rather than die shortly after megacrunching to release an untested game.

:D Congratulations! I'm positive that all of your hard work will pay off. I'll be sure to set aside time to play this. And of course, QC is super important. I completely understand delaying so that you can go through testing (unlike SOME triple-A companies amirite?).
