Weekly Update #261: Extended Demo Release Preparations – Part II

Alright, just a really short update today, as I sadly don’t have much time on my hands (there isn’t much to report, anyway).

As the title already suggests, we are continuing with the preparations for SHINRAI‘s anniversary and the release of the extended GENBA no Kizuna demo on the 26th! Less than ten days to go now, but there is still a lot to do!

First of all, I focused on finishing the anniversary artwork, featuring one of our SHINRAI characters wearing the GENBA police uniform! If you’re a patron, you can check out a new preview of it here. Right now, Natsu is taking care of the coloring.

I have also started preparing our Discord Channel, which we plan to launch very soon. I’m still not too familiar with this whole thing, so there is more for me to look into, but I’m slowly starting to get a hang of things.

Other than that, I did some more beta-testing on the demo itself and will continue to do so, while also getting some more very useful feedback! That’s about it, honestly, so I’m already going to wrap this up (sorry for the short post)!

As always, please enjoy the rest of your weekend and, until next Saturday, take care :3

Weekly Update #260: Extended Demo Release Preparations

Alright, so plans have kinda changed for this month. I originally talked about them here, but ever since then, life has happened and thrown a giant wrench into things. Nevertheless, I’m still hell-bent on releasing our extended GENBA no Kizuna demo publicly on the 26th, so in order to make that happen, I’m currently reorganizing myself.

Weekly Update #259: Research & Writing Preparations

As mentioned in last week’s blog post, now that the extended GENBA no Kizuna demo is almost ready for its public release, I’m planning to get back into and mainly focus on writing again. My next major goal is to finish a first draft for the remaining chapters as soon as possible. Before I can get to that, however, some more research and preparation was in order!

Alright, first of all, let’s start off with a little reminder that the extended GENBA no Kizuna demo is now available to patrons for beta-testing!

If you’re also up for helping us out with catching some bugs and typos, correcting writing and grammar issues, and generally fine-tuning the experience, we’re all ears and would very much appreciate your feedback and suggestions!

The public demo release is planned for August 26 (which also happens to be the anniversary of SHINRAI‘s release).

Weekly Update #256: Beta-Testing & New Music

Okay, let’s get right into this week’s progress update, shall we? So, how far along has our extended GENBA no Kizuna demo come? Well, it’s actually undergoing testing and tweaking by Natsu right now!

(As you can tell by the screenshot above, Natsu still needs to adjust the positions of some of our character sprites w)

That’s right, Natsu is currently going through the demo, fixing the remaining issues now that the coding is done! I still have to test the whole thing myself afterwards too, so it’s definitely going to take a couple more days, but! The Patreon release is imminent! And in the end, it’s even going to feature a bit more content than I initially planned.

Natsu has finished coding another scene, which only leaves one more! I’ve already fixed up the script for it and the necessary assets are almost done as well! Just need to revise the remaining DPA entries and create a couple more menu buttons, so who knows? Maybe next week, we can finally announce the demo release for patrons!

Alright, let’s jump right into this week’s progress update! First of all, Amber‘s sprite variations have now been colored by Natsu as well! I might make a public Patreon post with a sprite sheet, similar to how I did it for some of the other characters, but for now, I wanted to share at least one little preview of her.
