Hello, everyone. I hope your summer is starting out great. :)

We have about three months left before the release of our first demo for this game, so we'll be working hard to make sure that happens on schedule.

In the meantime, I'd like to share some more art with you, made by the wonderful Sayuui. This is a sprite of one of our romantic interests, Jun, seen here in a rare moment where she's not having fun being angry about pop culture. Let us know what you think of the sprite, or any other questions you might have. Thanks!

Hello once again! Progress is still moving along for our game. It's time to show a sprite for our other romantic interest, Paul:

Hey, everyone! :) Refraction is coming along quite nicely. A lot of the programming has been done already, so today I'd like to share a short video of the introduction animation for our gaming studio, "Universe Zero." I hope it makes you as excited as I am. ^^

Hello all! It's been another week, and our project is moving on swimmingly. ^_^

Today I'd like to introduce you to more of the game's characters! We've already met our two romantic interests, but those aren't the only people involved in this story.

Mitch:
Mitch excited arms 2 left.png
Mitch is a young Latino man who is just beginning his college years in the journalism department. While enthusiastic, he is still timid and easily embarrassed as he tries to find his place among the more senior members of his team. Still, he is very interested in Jackie's project to expose the university president's sexual misconduct, and his excitement lends a great deal of passion to the endeavor.

Gus:

Gus is a graduate student at BLU. Having already graduated from the journalism department, he is a laid-back figure who many undergraduates look up to. While he does have convictions, he tends to take a cool and detached view of the things around him. However, this does not mean that he doesn't have standards, and he can be very fiery when he discovers something that he thinks is unethical or immoral.

Let us know if you have any questions or comments about the project. Have a great week!

Oh, and if you're into Twitter, feel free to follow Universe Zero! @UniverseZero2

Hello everyone! Today I'd like to share something from one of our team members that I haven't been promoting very much, Lukedoc321. He's a phenomenal composer who has been working on making the music for our game. I'd like to share a video of the current main theme he's been working on. It's a simple and beautiful tune that I'm proud to have associated with this project:

You should definitely check out Luke's other work. He's a valuable resource to have in commission or on your team's project. :)

As always, thanks for reading, and feel free to post questions or comments. Have a good week!

Hey all! Hope you had a good week. :)

Today we have the art for yet another character in our game. As usual, credit to Sayuui for the beautiful artwork.
rsz_secretary.png
Meet the Secretary. A quiet and professional man, he tends to fade into the background, preferring to act as a listener and a recorder to events rather than participating in them. In fact, his lack of presence makes it very difficult for most people to remember his actual name. This is why most people just refer to him by his role rather than trying to remember what he's called.

During the events of the game, he is the final member of Jackie's reporting group that seeks evidence against the president of their university. True to form, he stays in the background and mostly just records the minutes for the meetings. Occasionally, he's asked to find and provide tools for the team.

Incidentally, he may or may not have an uncanny resemblance to one of the people creating the game....

Thanks as always for reading, and feel free to leave any questions or comments. ^^

Hey guys! Just coming in with a quick update this week. We're very close to releasing the demo for our game, so I'm very excited to get that out to you. For now, I'd like to share a lovely background image of Jackie's room. This was made by Foxeleos, an incredible artist who's work you should check out. :)

Hey, everyone! I'd like to introduce another one of our characters today.
Evana neutral right 2.png
This is Evana. She is originally from Syria, but is currently in the US as part of her higher education. This is her first semester at Big Lake University, and she currently lives as Jackie's roommate. She's a bit shy, but she has a very kind heart, and her cooking is spectacular, especially to a grad student like Jackie, who is used to going out to eat.

Thanks for reading! Please try out our new demo if you'd like to. ^_^

Hello again, everyone! ^_^

We've received a lot of feedback for the first demo of our game. There are some things in particular that we've had requests on, most prominently the content of the game that the demo focuses on. With that in mind, we're working on releasing a second demo very soon that will hopefully be more enjoyable. We'll let you in on the details as they come out. :)

In the meantime, here's a CG that will appear in our demo, drawn by our wonderful character artist, Sayuui. Have a good week!

Hey, everyone!

It's been a few weeks since out new demo came out, and progress on the game is continuing forward at a steady pace. If you haven't tried the demo, we'd love for you to check it out and tell us what you think. :)

In the meantime, I wanted to show off one of our main musical themes, courtesy of our composer Luckdoc321. Enjoy!
