Announcing “Love Bites”

I’m very proud to announce that I brought together two awesome people: Rebecca (the artist behind my early titles like Heileen and Bionic Heart) and Miakoda (PSCD writer) to make a new game! 🙂

I am quite excited about it. I don’t want to reveal too much about the story, since involves supernatural. Also, the full game title (or the subtitle if you prefer) is longer… but if I posted it now, I would give away some of the surprise. So for now I’ll just call it “Love Bites” 😉

Some more information: it’s going to have a classic dating sim gameplay, with a calendar, several places/activities to do, and of course love interests. It’s going to have both male and female protagonists, and have both straight and homosexual romances. There will be 2 male and 2 female love interests and you’ll be able to romance all of them with the male or female main character.

Are you already excited? I am! In the next weeks I’ll introduce the cast of the game. For now, here is a preview of the two main protagonists:

Yes two red-heads 😉 The cute dog Kaitlyn is carrying is Nick (even Brandon can carry him of course). It’s based on one of the pet I used to have (unfortunately he died back in 2011):

Nick

I already put several of my cats in games (Black of Heileen, Othello in Bionic Heart, Nina in Always Remember Me, Remi in PSCD) but this is the first dog!

Other news

This week also got a good news for yaoi-lovers: the writing of my first yaoi-only dating sim Heirs & Graces is finished! It still needs to be all scripted, coded, it’s missing some music, etc so it won’t be out shortly, but very likely will be the next game to be out after C14 Dating.

I also finished the last part of the Queen Of Thieves “robbery missions” and asked artist to do some tweaks to the sprites. I need to review all the scenes now, integrate them in the game (so if you visit the blacksmith with the right characters, you’ll meet Mary-Ann, etc) and make note of some missing backgrounds. Still a lot of work to do but having finished the coding is a big milestone.

I also got to play a first beta candidate of C14 Dating and it’s looking AWESOME. I am really eager to start the preorders which might happen very soon, even this weekend, so follow me on social media or read the forums to know more 🙂

Currently I’m looking at this release schedule (which of course could totally change based on cosmic-events, as you well know):
– end of this month/next month: C14 Dating beta
– April/May: Heirs & Graces beta
– June/July: Queen Of Thieves beta

will be fun in a few months to go back to this post, and see what REALLY happened 😉

    😀 Always great to see new games on the horizon, looking forward to learning more of this.

    Really hope it doesn’t mean more juggling balls to an already overworked WW however, as there certainly are -many-many-many- projects we’d love to see finish over time.

    Crossing fingers this’ll be a productive and rewarding year both for WW -and- us fans who love your games.

    Bring it on!

      Thanks for your concerns about over work, but I don’t think you have anything to worry about. This is a smaller project (only around 100,000 words), so I should have the writing finished sometime in the summer. The artist is doing a phenomenal job, and I really love some of the other projects she’s done.

        Yes I can sleep well knowing that two of the most reliable people I’ve ever worked with are doing the most part of this game (well, also the musician is very reliable so let’s make 3!).
        Also I won’t personally touch it until it’s all done, so I only have to do the coding/put everything together at the end. All the delays on other games are due to unreliable/slow people, and to the fact that are either complex RPG or card games so they couldn’t simply be done quickly. But dating sims are a whole different world luckily 🙂

    Are the layers on Kaitlyn in the right order? The bust of the gradient dress seems to overlap her left (our right) arm.

    • admin says:

      Ah you’re right I didn’t notice! I used the layer in the order artist sent me, but since there are alternate poses probably that’s why. Not a big problem since how I display it in the game will be different and I’ll make sure it works right 😛

    Looking forward to all the new dating sims coming out! Love Bites looks particularly interesting 🙂 Are there still plans for PSCD romance DLC?
