Sorry, it's been so long since I've even thought about doing a blog update, I don't remember how I did them before. Hopefully the gif helps explain the situation in continuing this Visual Novel Series.
//// DEVELOPMENT STORIES
Official date for the release of episode 4 and redone episode 1 (which will have double the content) will be December 14. Why? Cause I figured after how long episode 3 took, (and the fact I'm not redoing any character artwork), it should take about 2 months to finish both. My composer for this series, Elias Luukanen, is slated to create some more custom music for the soundtrack.
This time around, I've decided to really play up the power of choices for the visual novels. When you're a developer running out of time, it's easy to cut corners, but as a designer, you have to think: is this worth it? That's part of the reason I didn't want to say a release date until the writing and choice structure was better than what was previously done, and what's out there. I aim to have the best visual novel out there one day.
//// FUTURE DEVELOPMENT
There will be some major characters introduced in episodes 4 -6, and why is it so hard to draw what's in your head? I need to practice a lot. They are all fighters and I'm planning on having like an anime tournament in it... it's under work.
I think the art thing, where I release a new concept thing each day, will start in December. But then again, I release things sporadically on the official website's blog.
//// OTHER NEWS
Speaking of which, I spent the later part of last month remodeling the site, especially the flash pages (*sigh* I was just learning how to get it to work, too).
Hey, I've got a character popularity poll up now here: http://www.thelegendofauferre.com/ (you'll have to scroll down a bit) and cast your vote! Let's see what the internet thinks. And if you've got a poll idea, I'm all ears.
~That's all, folks!
