Weekly Update #220: Plans For November

Halloween has sadly passed by and now we are already at the beginning of November, getting very close to the end of 2018!
With that in mind, for today, I’d like to talk about our plans for this month and kinda the rest of the year in general.

Before we get to that, however, let’s have a quick recap of everything that happened over the course of this past week!

Happy Halloween!

And so it has finally arrived: the 31st of October, Halloween! The day on which the events of SHINRAI took place in 2010!

In order to celebrate the occasion, we have once again worked on a little Halloween artwork and, as voted by our patrons, it features our sophisticated little Runa dressed up as none other than the Golden Witch herself!

If you’re a patron, you can download a hi-res version of the image, as well as a transparent version of Runa without background and text over here. The image has also been added to our gallery.

Also, speaking of Patreon, I have made last year’s special blog post publicly available now! So if you’d like to read a bit about visual clues and see some unused artwork, be sure to check it out! Just be advised that it contains rather gory art. I will also post another special blog post later today for the 5$ tier, so patrons can look forward to that as well!

So what are your plans for this years All Hallows’ Eve? Are you going to dress up, play some horror games or watch horror flicks?
Or all of the above and even more? Whichever way you decide to spend today, we wish you to have a spooky good time (and preferably without any murders)!

Halloween Sale 2018

Only a few days remain until it’s finally Halloween! Are you already prepared and set to spend a spooky time? Or are you still looking for something to get you and/or your friends into the right mood? In case of the latter, how about giving our murder mystery VN a little spin? Now would be the ideal time to do so!

Weekly Update #219: More New Sprites!

Yep, you’re seeing that right! Even though I thought I had all the sprites ready for the next part of the extended demo, I kinda ended up… making a couple more! Though, to be fair, these ones were planned to be used in the game eventually anyway. I just found use for them earlier than I initially thought. And how exactly did that happen? Well…

Weekly Update #217: Himatsu Sprite Progress

If you’ve kept a close look on Twitter over this past week, you might have seen me post a couple of facial expressions for Himatsu, the last member of our four playable protagonists! After Shinketsu and Rei, I have decided to tackle her next, since she is going to be introduced after those two. Patrons can actually get a better look at some of her new exrpessions and poses over here!

Weekly Update #216: Halloween Preparations

The month of Halloween has finally begun and, as always, it’s going to be a slightly busier one, since it obviously holds special significance for us. There are quite a few things that need to be prepared for the end of October, which I’ve already started to focus on. Just before typing this blog post, for example, I uploaded a WIP-preview for this year’s Halloween artwork over on Patreon!

Weekly Update #215: Background Progress

After tackling the Sprites for Rei and Shinketsu, I have mainly focused on finishing the “crime scene” version of the Main Hall background over this past week. Patrons can now get an early look at it over here!

With this background finally out of the way, the assets for the next scene are now all there, meaning that we can soon start to code it. The current plan is to have an early version of the scene ready for patrons next month, so that they can help us with bug-testing.

Weekly Update #214: Sprite Progress

In last week’s blog post, I was talking about the sprite variety in SHINRAI and GENBA as well as how I usually go about creating sprites and what kinds of considerations go into that. Over this past week, I put that to practice as I continued working on Shinketsu‘s and Rei‘s sprites for the extended demo. Patrons can even get a look at some previews of all the sprites over here!

Please keep in mind that only my part on the sprites is done. What’s still missing is for them to be properly colored by Natsu.
Once she has taken care of that, I will post some updated sprite sheets with the actual finished versions!
