Mid-Year Point of Situation

Planet Stronghold 2 character creation: pick custom skills

We’re mid-way through this 2018 and I wanted to make the point of situation. As you’re well aware if you already follow me, this year I managed to release two games already: Cursed Lands and Love Bites.

So, what’s next ? Let’s see!

Planet Stronghold 2

This is the game I’m working on mainly right now. It’s another RPG, and I’m just at the beginning (you can see a screenshot of the character creation) so don’t expect this to be out this year (but should definitely be out next).

I’m having fun so far, even if I’ll need to rewrite a good amount of code to follow the new rules (different shot types for example). The game story is currently at 50,000 words, with a general plot outline andΒ a few character scenes done, but I’m still tweaking it.

While this game won’t be another 300,000 words game like Cursed Lands, it won’t be a small one either (I don’t know yet but probably still around 200,000 words).

So as you can see there’s still a lot of work left to do, both coding and story-wise!

Corona Borealis

This will become my first really TRUE small game in a while πŸ™‚ However I’ve asked the writer to add a few more texts to develop the characters personalities more and get to know them better.

I don’t know yet how long will take to finish this but I think it could be out before end of year.

Volleyball Heaven

In this case the romance CGs are taking longer than expected, but as you can see from the close-up preview above (yes that’s zoomed in, despite the quality, the image is much bigger) the final result will be worth the wait πŸ˜‰ also in light of recent events, we’re going to have the game playable both in censored/uncensored mode. Before we didn’t think to provide a censored / tame mode, but in the end it’s probably better to do this so will reach a broader audience.

To do this we need to do some minor adjustments both to the CGs (provide a “covered version”) and texts.

The game scripting should also start very shortly and I’ll be posting some screenshot previews as usual on the social media when I start testing it myself!

    I am so glad you decided to still add tame mode for Volleyball Heaven. I would be very disappointed if you had gone back on your word for sexy stuff to always be optional.

      It’s still going to be quite sexy to be honest, but nowhere as it would be “normally”. But the sexy aspect is actually not the main thing about this game despite being about a beach volley team, I think the story is interesting and different from most I’ve done in the past πŸ™‚

    You say it won’t be 300,000 words, but I remember a post of you saying that you were going to slow down, and proceeded to release 2 games. Never say never.

    I’m pretty stoked about Loren 2. Loren is still my favorite game of winter wolves. It had a very emotional endings before the expansion pack. Karen’s romance was definitely the most saddest route, because the happiest path was for her to die.

      Haha true, to be honest I’ll just write it normally without thinking about word count too much πŸ™‚

      Personally I liked the original endings, I remember I proposed them to the writer. After the forums complaints we decided to allow a fix in the DLC, but sometimes in stories characters have to die to make everything more worthwhile πŸ˜›
