Weekly Update #210: GENBA itch.io Store Page

So, after last week’s slightly longer blog post about How To Plan A Crime (as a writer for a fictional work, of course!), I guess that today’s blog post is going to be a bit more on the shorter side and just a quick overview of what’s currently going on!

As you might have noticed, SHINRAI is currently on sale again in order to celebrate the 2-year anniversary of its release on August 26, 2016. So if you’ve been considering to try it out for a while, or if you know someone you would like to play it, now’s a good chance to strike, as the game and its soundtrack are currently 50% off!

Alternatively, if you have already played SHINRAI, you can also check out the short, initial demo for our next VN project, GENBA no Kizuna! We have now published a page for it on itch.io as well, which you can check out here. Along with the launch of the itch.io page, I have also slightly updated the features list for the game. Furthermore, our thread on the LemmaSoft forums has been updated as well, giving you a quick look at various things we have worked on since April. So if you’re relatively new here and have just learned about GENBA but don’t want to go through dozens of blog posts… that’s a good way to get a quick summary of things!

As for the stuff I’ve recently been working on (outside of setting up the itch.io page, which kinda took a while “orz), I’ve started to revise the demo script a little due to the feedback we have gotten so far. A number of people have mentioned some of the internal monologue beats going on for a bit too long, so I’ve decided to check them over again and trim them down a little. I guess it didn’t really strike me as “bad” back in April, but I can certainly see now where those people are coming from.

I’ve also talked about the next GENBA track with our composer, so patrons can expect to get a listen to it very soon! This will also be the final track needed for the extended demo, so once it’s finished, at least the BGM part is going to be fully taken care of!

Speaking of Patreon, this month’s art poll is going to run for another week and we’re currently sitting at a tie. So if you’re a patron, please be sure to get your vote in to help us decide which character will be featured in the September artwork!

I guess that about sums it up, so I’m going to wrap it up right here. Please keep an eye out tomorrow, however, as there will be another quick little posting. It’s going to be the 26th after all!

With that said, please enjoy the rest of your weekend and take care! :3
