Weekly Update #167: October Wrap-Up

So, are you ready for Halloween? We’re almost there now! I hope you’ve been able to enjoy a spooky October so far.
I wish I would’ve had the time to enjoy it a little more myself, but there were lots of things to take care of. However, I’m definitely set for the 31st and am planning to thoroughly enjoy it. Hopefully, the same is true for you!

If you’re still looking for something thematically fitting to spend your Halloween with (or maybe as a recommendation for a friend), I’d like to once again bring the current Halloween Sale to your attention. SHINRAI is currently 30% off, so now would certainly be a great time to get it! I mean, what’s better than solving a murder case set on Halloween ON Halloween??

We’ve been getting new reviews too, so if you’re indecisive, you can check those out to see if SHINRAI might be your thing!

Now, with that out of the way, time for actual update news!

First of all, I’ve made a new Patreon-only blog post yesterday, featuring a design sketch and some info regarding another one of GENBA no Kizuna’s four suspect characters. I’m planning to publicly introduce them some time early next year, once their actual sprites are done. But if you want to get an early look and maybe even leave some feedback, you can do so now over on Patreon.

(And speaking of new characters and actual sprites being done: in case you have missed it, I’ve posted a look at the finished sprite of another new GENBA character in last week’s blog post.)

I should probably also mention that the poll for the November artwork is going to end in just a couple of days, so if you want to help decide what Natsu will be drawing next month, now’s your last chance to get a vote in! Starting from November, I will then create the polls for the December/January artworks. Since Christmas and New Year’s aren’t too far apart, I’ll be adding two polls at once, which will be running until mid-December most likely.

Other than that, there isn’t too much else to report. Natsu is currently finishing up the Halloween artwork, which will be publicly posted on the 31st, of course. And since my part on that is mainly done, I’ve been focusing more on GENBA again. I’m going to get back to the background art soon, but currently, I’m busy with writing and planning. I’ll most likely get into a bit more detail about that next week, but for now, I’m going to wrap this up, since I need to get back to work.

Again, please enjoy a spooky October and until Halloween, take care! :3
