The dedication to detail is astounding. It looks like a living, breathing world... I love the immersion!

Aww, thank you so much! Do I have some stories to tell about it... They are not that interesting, though. ; )

I can hardly believe it, but today I'm working on the game's epilogue. I'm waiting for one more image and rewriting the endgame credits. Tomorrow I'm sending the game for some testing, and if we decide the quality is satisfying, we'll try to try to release Tales From Windy Meadow before Christmas.

Yesterday, Oray Studios sent me some fantastic graphics that I'm editing right now. This game is so much more than I originally aimed for and it truly makes me proud.

For this ScreenshotSaturday I prepared two "old vs new" backgrounds. Some differences are obvious, some won't ever be noticed by anyone... Yet you won't believe how much time it took me to apply all the changes I wanted. And I think it was worth it.

Have a fantastic day!

Thank you so much! I recently spend 12+ hours every day working on the game and I'm exhausted... I love to see the progress, but I think I'm ready to finally see the end of the road. ^^

A small update - I decided to disable the demo that I shared here some time ago because it does not reflect the current state of the game. Many graphics were updated, interface changed significantly and an important bug was removed. Dialogue was also majorly improved during the editing process.

I will be sure to upload the new version of the demo during the full release (I currently aim at December 20th!). However, if some of you would like to play the demo in the nearby future, I can modify my plans and upload it by itself.

Tales From Windy Meadow is now available on Steam. I wanted to create an interactive story that explores the anxieties of choosing one’s path and living in a small community.

It turned out just as I wanted it to be, but better. It’s set in my beloved fantasy setting that I’ve been working on for 10 years. It tells a slice-of-life story, not an action-adventure one. It’s a Visual Novel, but it’s not about romance nor sex. I love the music, I love how the graphics evolved since the early concept arts. I love how the dialogues improved over the years.

It’s a niche game and I understand if many of you won’t find it interesting, but I also know for some people it’s a unique, intimate experience. And I’m happy I made it.

Thank you for sharing this moment with me. ^^

I have been worried about spamming your thread, so that is good. I got to start the game during lunch today (with two chars) and right away, the feeling is EPIC.
