Weekly Update #444: Chapter IV Progress

Once again, I’d like to start things off with a little reminder that we have recently launched the Steam page for GENBA no Kizuna and uploaded the first proper trailer for it! So if you haven’t seen either of them yet, be sure to check them out and maybe even add this little dino-themed murder mystery VN to your wishlist!

Now, with that out of the way, let’s get into this week’s progress report!

At the moment, I’m working on the biggest and most important Social Phase of the game and, last Sunday, I managed to finish up Himatsu‘s route for it and already sent it over for Natsu to now take care of the coding and make it playable. Himatsu‘s part even features a new CG which I have also just posted on Patreon, so if you’d like to get an early look at it, you can check it out here!

Anyway, I immediately went on to work on Rei‘s and Shinketsu‘s routes which are somewhat intertwined and therefore require to be worked on simultaneously. It’s a little bit complicated with the two of them and requires a lot of double-checking and adjusting to make sure it all works out no matter in which order you talk to them. I’ve honestly been struggling a little with the subject matter too and ensuring that everything has a logical flow and makes sense, so things have been going rather slowly, but I am finally getting towards the finish line. In the best case scenario, I can send Natsu another zip package tomorrow and finish up the Social Phase conclusion mid-week. Either way, by next weekend, I definitely want to move on to the next set of investigation routes!

Well, that about sums it up for this week. I wish I could delve into more details, but I obviously don’t want to spoil anything, either.
At least I might be able to publicly share some new BG art soon, that’s not too spoilery, so please look forward to that!

Now, as always, I wish you to enjoy the rest of your weekend! Until next Saturday, take care :3
