Weekly Update #408: Quick Progress Report

As the title already says, we’re gonna have another very quick update again today, as I still have quite a bit of stuff to take care of and therefore want to return to work ASAP. There isn’t much to report, anyway.

Natsu will still need more time to code the remainder of GENBA‘s third chapter, as mentioned in last week’s blog post, and I have primarily focused on the script again this past week, alternating between polishing the second social phase (which occurs between chapters 3 and 4) and working on Keiichi‘s next investigation route, in which he once again summons our two witnesses to ask them a few more questions.

The first set of investigation routes in chapter 4 is relatively short, so I hope to finish it by the end of the month or even a little earlier.
The way the chapter is currently structured is that players have to tackle four investigation routes at the beginning (one for each character) and complete them in any order, just how it works in chapter 2. Afterwards, there’s a social phase, followed by another set of investigation routes, an intermission scene once those have been completed and then, the rest of the chapter will unfold in a slightly different manner, which I don’t really want to get into yet.

But yeah, as you can see, there is a lot of investigating to be done this time! And I’d like to get right back to work on that, so…

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