Probably not many of you know that before going indie, I was a (rather poor to be fair) webdesigner. Many people probably think that being a webdesigner is a creative job but the reality is that after you do the 100th website, you start to have enough… 🙂
Anyway, this week I was waiting for some people to send me assets (writing, art, music, etc) so I was idle. If wasn’t Winter I would have use this unexpected “free time” to do some trips around here to relax, but since it is, I thought to finally begin the redesign of my website, something I’ve been procrastinating for too long!
You can see a “sneak peek” here: http://www.winterwolves.com/test/
It’s still largely unfinished and many links are broken, but that’s more or less how the new homepage will look, I think a big improvement over the current one.
Roger Steel: Arthur point of view
After the big reveal of Winter Wolves’ new steampunk graphic adventure romance RPG Roger Steel and the Human Element on this illustrious blog last week, Ann’s younger brother Arthur was somewhat miffed that most of the razzamatazz focused on her. He wants you to know his side of the story, so …
When Arthur Trevelyan’s sister Ann falls for the wrong boy yet again, he is asked to accompany her to Srinagar, the capital of Kashmir, to keep her out of mischief.
But looking after Ann proves to be a challenge even with the help of lifelong friends, Neville and Christina Mortimer.
When she is inevitably kidnapped by a new flame, it is up to Arthur to rescue her and ponder the immortal question – how can two dorky friends and six perfect strangers with hidden agendas possibly be any more trouble than one headstrong big sister?

Bionic Heart 2
This week reached scene15, which probably won’t tell you much. For me means line 5799 out of about 11.000 so we’re about halfway coding the game, which means that it could be out around end of the month, speaking of the beta version of course! Then there’s the testing phase and because this game has so much branching options, is going to take a while…
Tanya meets with a mysterious geek boy. Who is he?
Time for two new reports, this time Sally and Dominic (straight romances only).
Writer is working on the Spring Break scenes, featuring all characters in swimsuits 😉 Unofficial rumours says that the game plot might be finished by the end of this month: however don’t get too much excited, since there’s still a lot of work to be done, scripting, coding, testing… and all the background art to do. So a more realistic estimate release date could be this Summer!
