3.5 days to go and 94% funded!

We already announced which Alistair design we chose, but alas, look at what could have been.

Image

Though we chose her color palette, we ended up scrapping the green. Looking too much like Cotton Candy, miss!
Image

Thank you for all your continued support, and let's hit that funding goal!

Ooh! Is Sabre romanceable? Is that one of the perks of reaching a certain goal or tier as part of the KS campaign? :)

He's a $6600 stretch goal tier! Although we have received a few requests for Sabre/Silas DLC should the stretch goals not be reached...

Belated Kickstarter post, but we were successfully funded! Not only that, but we also reached the stretch goals for extra art and a new love interest in the form of Sabre!

We are currently hard at work with editing, voice lines, and art! Below, you can see a sneak peek of a new character who's currently vying for first place in my fickle heart -- Raphael!

An exciting update: the script for COB is now complete! Over 100k words, about 30k+ more than originally intended... :shock:

Characters are getting secondary poses! Feast your eyes on some quality megane-push up action from Linnaeus:

Image

And a sneak peek of Franz' new pose:

We launched a Patreon! If you missed out on the chance to nab Chess of Blades during the Kickstarter, here's another way to grab it early with a couple extra perks!
Image

In between all of the official art going into Chess of Blades, Mizu's been working on the Kickstarter rewards. The keychain is ready and soon to be ordered, and the poster is in the works!

Image

Image

With the script complete, I can now start adding in all the voice lines to the game.... there's a lot of them >_<. I did write a little script to do it automatically, but Dovah's code is a little bit too irregular for it to work properly ;-;

Image

Here's a teaser of the track our composer (and Arden's voice actor) is working on~


Franz's completed pose #2!
Image

And working on a new GUI

Big update! The romance route for our last character, Sabre, is now done!

Final word count for the whole game: ended up at about 125k... after we initially planned for around 50k... :oops: Writing struggles.

Some other cool updates!

Arden Pose #3

New character Kieran, who features in Sabre's Route

Kickstarter Poster Finalized

Any thoughts and feedback welcome :D

I bought Requiescence and enjoyed it very much. Looking forward to buying this one too when it's finished.
