Weekly Update 239: DPA & BGM Progress

Today’s update is going to be on the shorter side again, so let’s jump right into what’s new this week!

As you can already tell from the title of this posting, I’ve been working on the remaining DPA content that will be featured in our extended demo, which mainly involved lots of writing and research. Here’s a little preview of one of the new trivia entries:

I’m still thinking about making this a two-page entry instead, as there is a lot of fascinating trivia to talk about regarding these magnificent creatures. The image will also change to a different one of Alexis, where she isn’t wearing the horned headgear. But yeah, I really hope that players will find this interesting. I personally do and I’d like people to learn a few things about not only dinosaurs, but even their modern day descendants while playing GENBA no Kizuna.

Alexis is a raptor, after all, and you probably won’t get any closer to what an actual Velociraptor might have looked like.

Next up, another BGM track that will be featured later in the game (not in the extended demo) has been published on Patreon. 7$-and-higher patrons can listen to and download the full mp3. For everyone else, I do have a little preview at least:


Does the melody sound familiar? w

Now, in case you have missed it, there is also our White Day artwork, which has been released just the other day. And I’d also like to take the opportunity again to bring attention to our currently running Patreon poll. If you have pledged to us, be sure to vote on which character will be starring in next month’s artwork! You have two more weeks to influence the outcome!

Finally, we have received a really nice review for SHINRAI in the form of a Twitter thread by Lord Яastagong. It made me so happy that I just had to share it here! So if you’ve been pondering for a while whether or not you should check out our little murder mystery VN, maybe this will persuade you into just giving it a try!

While you’re at it, maybe check out Lord Яastagong‘s own little VN as well. It’s also a mystery titled Sylvan Disappearance.

Oh, and since we’re already on the topic, maybe check out Pitch Black Serenade by Kuna as well! It’s a romance/paranormal visual novel with mystery elements, that has now reached 500 downloads on itch.io… because it’s really good!

And for even more mystery stuff, maybe keep an eye on Natsu‘s current NaNoRenO project Helica Ascent as well! It’s got a really interesting setting! You can learn more about it here.

Anyway, that’s about it for this week’s blog post, so please enjoy the rest of your weekend and, until next Saturday, take care! :3
