This week had several focuses. The first one is that we released an internal dev build, which brought us to note down lots of bugs to iron out. (it’s always those pesky bugs!) But thanks to it the whole team was more fueled than ever into getting things done.
Secondly, seeing your amazing response to the CG, and how we as a team also all enjoy making them, we decided to add more of them and planned several, with sketches, one of which Kuja has already turned into beautiful final art. (although we may do some touch ups for ease of animation purposes).
While the spanking scenes were ok, (finally, if I may say) we still wanted to add that nice extra touch… so we added hands to finger K properly ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) and they’re now ready to be used by our animator.
The female 3/4 skeleton front body emotes are getting done (9 out of 17) while the facial expression pieces are being prepped for import.
Meiri’s tent is now set up, and the gathering is being reworked and polished, as well as several small bugs. In this regard, we set up a system to categoryze and track bugs once again for the build.
On the community side, we have the winners for the character creation contest! In the first place we have Phanta; in second place, we have Zachary Røgnvaldr, and last but not least, in third place is Shiva. Check the discord for more details. It will be great to add the first place design to the game. Thank you to all that participated, and as always, thank you for your support!
