126 - Episode 11 will affect the size of your PP.

How is it going bros? Good? Great! I'm alive and well too. No polls this time. So far we did learn though that many people like Hermione, use Windows and own a Nintendo SWITCH. At this point I am having a hard time coming up with new poll questions. If you have any bright ideas- feel free to share them in the comment section.

Episode 11 will be a special one. I know I've been saying this a lot lately: Ep8 was special because it was the first SimRoom story and had multiple endings, Ep9 was special because it had many illustrations that weren't necessarily full screen CGs and ep10 was special because it took place in the PT universe. But here we are again and Ep11 will be special too.

Coming soon* The main change with working on Ep11 for me is the way I decided to approach working on it. For quite a while now I've been concentrating heavily on spitting on new episodes as quickly as I can (without making too many compromises). I thought releasing updates in a timely manner would feel good, and it did to an extent, but over time I started to feel like I am rushing things a bit too much. So my design philosophy for for Ep11 is to take things a bit slower and actually have some fun with it, and add choices and graphical assets that are not absolutely essential but would be just fun to work on for me personally.

Worry not. Over the years I've gotten fairly good at planning out a project scale ahead of time to make sure it doesn't get over-bloated with too many ideas. Everything mentioned above should result in a slightly better shaped out story with a few more extra choices a few more jokes that lend a bit better and a few more scenes that will make the educational scenes a bit more exiting. That's all I have to say for this post. Love you all. Off to the lab now.

 125 - The New Guest Story is OUT!


Hi bros! How is everyone doing? Fantastic? Great? Wonderful? Having the best day ever? The best week ever maybe? Or the best month/year ever??! What a coincidence: ME TOO!!! Everything is great and wonderful and I am looking towards the future wondering what wonderful surprises life has in stock for us all! Surely it will be something amazing!

No I did not take any drugs before sitting down to write this post. Well I did drink some coffee but I don't think it counts. In fact I KNOW it does not count because it was a damn good coffee but I barely feel any effects of it. Damn, even the coffee is not what it used to be... Back in my day a cup of coffee would give you an alert state, shaky hands and hard pp.

Ignore the intro. I couldn't figure out how to start the post so I though maybe I should make it a bit less depressing then usual, just for the heck of it :)
New guest story! The new guest story: "Blue Balls and Necromancy" is out. I updated the files on https://akabur.itch.io/sc34 so just go there and download the version 10.03 of the game. Don't expect too much, this is just a fun little story to give you something to chew on while I work on Ep11. 

And that's it. Thank you for you support. I hope this will be a decent week for everyone. Stay strong, stay safe but more importantly: stay cool and keep playing my games. Hugs and kisses <3

124 - Next Monday.


Hi, bros.
How is everyone doing? Your benevolent leader speaking. I brought you some merry news so strap your selves in and let's dive right into it! 
I am working on episode 11. This time around I decided not to stress about the deadline that much. This will most likely result in a longer development time, but I really want to just enjoy the process instead of rushing things. I've been rushing things for many episodes now and I feel like I am getting a bit tired. This doesn't mean the story will be slowing down though. Things will be getting steamy in Ep11 I assure you.
Guest story. And last but not least: New guest story will be dropping next Monday. "Blue Ball and Necromancy" written by Blacktrader and coded in by Hell Void. A short adventure story with 3 different endings. I really liked this one so I decided to brake my own rule and added some small new art assets to give every ending a bit more weight. So yeah, next Monday, mark your calendars folks :)

That's it. Whenever I start having too much fun writing a Post (like I do now) I usually end up wasting too much time looking for clever cover pictures and edgy gifs. I think my time will be better spent working on Ep11 and finalizing and testing the guest story. Thank you for your support, bros. I love you all dearly. Peace.

Hi, bros. How is it going? 2020 has been a fun year so far, hasn't it? I hope everyone is doing well and stuff... Don't have much to say actually, apart from mentioning that this is Monday Post number 123. That is 2+ years of non-stop Monday Posting... (Haven't missed a single one!) That's both impressive... and depressing. Almost feel like I should get a life or something. But no, I don't think I would want to have it any other way.
The cesspool. I have 10K followers on twitter now. I've been secretly waiting for this to happen for a while... But as it happens the wait was too long and now that it finally happened I don't even care that much anymore. Don't even have any celebratory pics prepared or anything... 10K is a big number though... Maybe I should do a butt reveal or something.

The work. I'm sure you already know what I'll say: the work is being done. That's all. With this episode I am trying to spice things up a bit (mainly for my own sake) and add a few extra choices both to the dialogs and the educational CG scenes. I wonder if because of that the Ep will feel a bit on a shorter side. Well, will see. Also the guest story taking a bit longer to finish up then I hoped it would, but it's still coming. Soon :)
 
The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel. Beat the game last week. Took me 127 hours. One hundred twenty seven hours bros... on a fucking anime game. I will be turning 40 years old in a few years., what the heck am I doing with my life? The worst part is: I love my stupid anime games to death T_T

ToCS's ending was simply magnificent by the way. I wasn't sure before but after beating the game I must say ToCS is my most favorite game ever at the moment. Persona4 has spectacular gameplay, but the ending was an incoherent mess. Well, anyway I already bought ToCS2 and can't wait to spend another hundred hours (probably 2 month of real time) in that world with my anime classmates. ^_^ 

SWTOR. I still play that every now and then. It's nice that the game is still around. I wonder how much longer will it last. I always experience this warm welcoming nostalgic feel when I boot it up. It was created back when western game developing companies actually had creative people working for them. Good old days ^^ I am on Starforge server. The name is "akabur" :)

And that is it. I love you all guys. I dunno... I just want to host a stream where I could sit for 6 hours and me a thot: do nothing and maybe share a beer with all of you. This was quite a journey wasn't it? ^_^ Well, stay safe and go play some anime games while I am working on another piece of family friendly content for you. Here is a gif from a bygone era of gaming that I miss dearly.

122 - Work, Work.


Hi bros. Your best bro Akabur is here. I'm alive. All is good. Have nothing of importance to report...

Working on Ep11. I plan to get more aggressive both with the story development and the girl's training sessions starting with this one. Well, we'll see how this will turn out I guess ^_^

Also SC34 reached 100k downloads on itch.io. I've been sneakily waiting for this to happen for a while now. Yay. ^_^ This doesn't mean anything of course, just a round number for me to look at. Thank you for all the support, guys.

Also I am still playing the Trails of Cold Steel. My experience with the game so far: "came for the buns, stayed for the funs". Originally the character design and setting piqued my interest but then... then the story happend. ToCS easily takes the second place on my "best games evar" list right now. Persona4 is still number one, but we'll see how it goes.

And that's it I think. Next sim story (illustrated by me :) is in the works, as soon as the coding guy and the background artist guy are done with their parts I will be able to release it. 

As for episode 11 it is still on the early stages... Early stages usually take the most effort out of me since I have to get into the grove again after releasing an episode, but as I pick up steam with every week it gets easier. I'm really looking forward to cranking up both the action and the sexiness in this one. Let's hope I will be able to pull it off (and in a timely manner too).

Thank you for all the support, guys. For your words of support, for you moneys of support. For everything. Love you all. Episode 11 is gonna rock! ^^

121 - I like to draw stuff.


Sup, dudes. How is it going? I hope everybody is doing well...  I'll refrain from commenting of the weirdness of year 2020 as a whole so far, after all we are all living it and share this unique experience together.

Episode 10 was a huge success! Well, maybe, I dunno... There is no way for me to judge the overall popularity of the episodes since I don't have sales numbers  or anything. But you guys continue to support me despite the tough times so I will take it as a sign that you continue to enjoy my work.

I like to draw things. What I mean is: I enjoy writing and I don't mind simple coding but nothing satisfies me as much as drawing does. Drawing calm my nerves and makes me believe (even if falsely) that everything will be OK.

That being said, episode 11 will, most likely, have a few extra drawings and a bit less text then usual. At least that's how I feel about approaching it for the moment.
Work, work. Episode 11 is in the works, but still on the early stages. In the meantime another guest story is incoming. I hope you're ready. This one will be shorter then "The Thing" was, but it will have 3 different endings, all of which will be illustrated by yours trully! Yes, I know, the whole idea for these guest stories was to keep my involvement to the minimum but I felt like illustrating this one, so I hope you will forgive me indulging my creative urges. :)
 
Xenoblade Chronicles Remaster is almost here. People keep saying that it's an awesome game, and I really hope that's in fact the case. Personally I am just looking forward to playing dress up with my party characters' armours. 

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel. Currently I  am 100+ hours in (I know that because I just got that "Trails In The Couch" trophy) and still only on chapter 6. Absolutely love that game so far. The world-building  and story-telling in this one is so good it is almost beyond my compression.  ToCS is getting real close to dethroning Persona 4 Golden as my most favorite game ever.

That's it for now. No news really. I plan to spend next week drawing and playing video games and trying not thinking too hard about where my life is going.

Love you all. Thank you for your support.

118 - Coming Soon!


*Pic above is from old, old, OLD project: Broken Hart Bordello. I dug it up just for the heck of it. This pic is 10+ years old by now. Hand drawn and colored with a Copic marker I believe.

Hello my dear friends and allies. I am Akabur -- a well-known creator of family friendly educational content here on Patreon.  Welcome to another Monday Post - the safest place on the entire site. Now just relax and let the safeness wash over you.

Today I decided to cook some pancakes (or crepes or whatever you want to call them). By the time I was done I was so pleased with my culinary talents that I immediately took loads of pictures in an attempt to savor this glorious moment in my life for the generations to come. Here is but only one of the pics. Marvel at my magnificence:
 
Episode 10 is almost ready. Yay. At the moment I am working on adding the sound. As soon as I am done with that I will send all the in-game texts to Lyk ( www.patreon.com/Lyk ) for proofreading. While he does that I will work on Personnel Files (the crew quarters), CG gallery and all that stuff. So yeah, aiming for next Monday with the release. Some things could still go wrong of course, but for now it's looking good ^^

And that's it. I better get to work now. Thank you for your support, bros.

117 - The Thing and The ALX XD

First things first. Have you seen the absolutely amazing mural ALX dropped on us very recently? If you haven't yet you should correct that misstep as soon as possible. I can't share any direct links here because that stupendously awesome piece of illustration contains... Well, it contains everything that is good and right with this world. Anyway, look it up, it's  absolutely amazing. But of course my opinion is a bias one since I appear in it as well, and not alone but with a whole harem of familiar faces. EDIT: Here on SS I absolutely can share any alinks I want though. So you can find ALX's pic here. Check it out, it's worth it, I assure you: http://www.hentai-foundry.com/pictures/user/fuckit/799899/10-000-fans
Next news. I fully completed a game called Tokyo School Life. Been playing it on my switch on and off for quite some time. The game took me 15 hours to unlock all the endings. I know nobody cares but you can't tell you heart not to love, and I loved that game. 

Also I am back to playing Trails of Cold Steel with occasional outburst of Zelda. And I did try to play Skyrim on my Switch only to realize that I can't stand it. Somehow I didn't notice that before but it's full of... weird stuff. In the first town there is a woman that often comes up to me and says how strong and independent she is, there is a girl running around talking about giving a bloody lip to men, women and old people. It's like some sort of mad world 0_0 Was it always like that? I guess I used to be way more innocent and somehow never noticed any of it before. 

That being said I do appreciate the fact that the game let me murder the poor woman-- Urm, I mean the strong independent woman, in cold blood, then go to prison for like half a minute, then re-spawn near her corpse. Where I proceeded to steal all her valuables, including her clothes and after that spent way too much time dragging her corpse around town and arranging it in odd positions like some nightmarish mummy doll. Yeah, forget what I said, Skyrim is great. But I think I'll stick to my weebo Japanese games, filled with positive vibes, tits and characters who actually behave like human beings.   

Elevator pitch! If you don't  know what that is... look it up ^^ In any case I understand now that studio executives not nervelessly are being dicks when they demand your ideas to be presented in a timely fashion. They are just a very busy people. I just got in email from a dude saying: "This is more of an idea for a mini game than a story..." followed with a description of some complex "mini" game. And I don't have time to even read through it, I reply with short: "Can't do mini games, need linear story. Sorry." And then I move on to the next dozen of new emails. I do that because otherwise I will be stuck with these letters forever. So yeah, when presenting your ideas it's very important to spark the listener's interest with the first few words or it could never go farther then that, no matter how good it is. -_-
 
The Thing. Let me present to you our first ever guest story. (You can find it in the Sim-Room) Written by Loose Cannon. This is a short and completely linear story. I already sneakily updated the game files on itch.io so if you feel like it - you know what to do. (https://akabur.itch.io/sc34) Don't expect too much though, this story runs on the art assets that are already in the game, meaning that you won't see any CGs or new costumes - just text. Also naturally this one is added to the game permanently so you can always play later, when you download the next version of the game, when Episode 10 drops.

Coming When? Coming Soon. I am almost done putting the scenes together for Episode 10.  If all goes well I could release it next Monday even. But I've been doing this long enough to know that things NEVER go according to plan so a more realistic estimate for the release of Ep.10 would be two weeks from now. Even though now that I said it out loud I probably jinxed that date as well... Oh, well, I just want you to now that next episode is coming soon and we have out first guest story to entertain you in the meantime :)

That is it. I think I better get back to work now. Love you all. <3

116 - Is It Monday Already? 0_0

Hello, epic bros. I'm still around, business as usual here. How are you doing? Keeping safe I hope? Also 12 subscribers? Whaaaaaaaa...?! Thank you for your support, dudes ^^

Seriously though, is it Monday already? Even before the current situation in the world I used to often feel like time goes by way too quickly. But these days it seem to just swoosh past me at a speed of light 0_0

Coming Soon* So last week has been spent solely on assembling the scenes (and realizing that this character sprite needs tweaking or that drawing contains a minor mistake that needs fixing). All in all it was a productive week, but I still have a lot of work ahead of me... This week I hope to finish putting the scenes together and move on to sound and putting the flags and triggers in to make sure that the events won't launch out of order and such.

Trails Of Cold Steel is on pause for a moment. I still try to play for a few hours at least once a week to make sure I don't forget the controls and such. But for now another game stole my attention.

Stupid thing I did. I decided to give Zelda Breath of The Wild another try. The game came free with my Switch and I did try it before but it didn't suck me in so I just kind of ignored it until now. But several days ago I decided to try again, and about 2 hours in I finally understood what the hype was all about. So yeah, these days all I think about is that stupid game. And the worst part (or maybe the best, hard to say) is that I can see myself easily investing 200+ hours in it. Easily!

Worry not. I don't waste my life away playing games all day. Usually I play for about an hour in the afternoon and for about a couple hours before I go to bed. Although because stupid Zelda is so addicting I sometimes stay up a bit longer and it starts to mess with my sleeping schedule...  
The Writers Quests is over. (You can still contact me though: [email protected]). I received a lot of emails and it got pretty hectic quick. But it all settled down now and what we are left with is this: one guy finished writing his stuff and is coding it it. Another guy who wrote two interesting little stories that you will get a kick out of I think, but he has no interest in coding in his stuff so I managed to delegate it to another person and also there is another guy who also delivered a story I hope to use but it is still unclear if he will be coding the thing or if I will be delegating his stuff as well. In any case it's hard to predict what will all this lead to but I am looking forward to find out.

I think I'll just leave it at that for this weeks post. Thank you for your support and try to stay safe. Episode 10 is......... COMING SOON!*

115 - Writer Quest Complete.
I'm so happy that I decided to create an account here on SS just in case, way back when. Always nice to have a plan B and also plan C and D if possible. This Monday Post will be posted here on time and on Patreon... eventually. The thing is Patreon introduced two factor authentication to login system but I guess something went wrong today and it won't recognize my PC anymore - says it's a new machine and I need to verify the link they sent me to my EMAIL. Only it's been 4 hours and there is still no link. I tried a couple more times - no dice. So yeah, Patreon is out of reach for me at the moment. Yay to plan Bs.

The writers quest. I think it is time to wrap this thing up for now. If you are late to the party you can still throw your hat into the ring, no problem ([email protected]), but I think I managed to find a few guys that I want to try and work with, so we will see what will all this lead to.

About episode 10. Usually I like to surprise people, so I don't like spoilers. But at the same time sharing at least some info can be fun and could make the wait more bearable I think. So here is the info: in Episode 10 you will be revisiting Agrabah 6 month after the events of the Princess Trainer. You will get to visit (and actually see) some of the locations, such as The Blue Bull tavern for example. You will also meet a lot of familiar faces and see how their life turned out.

Work Work. This is all nice and dandy of course, but bringing so many "new" characters into SC34 meant a lot of extra work on retouching old character sprites. (Seriously that stuff took surprisingly big amount of time). Also reintroducing all the "new" characters also took time. I did try to keep a good balance between compromising on some things to insure a timely release and making sure that said compromising does not include anything truly important.

Soon? All writing is done. All art assets are ready. Currently I continue to assemble the scenes. This will take a while, but episode is finally taking shape. ^^

And that's it. I need to get back to work now. Thank you for your support. Love you all. -_-

114 - Still Looking For Writers. The Sequel.

Sup, bros. How is it going, epic bros? Happy to see you here. All seven of you!!! Thank you for your support, guys.

The Writers. Since last week I received about a dozen new emails from people and yet I don't have any exciting news to report on that front. Some dudes sent me stories I simply can't use, others just vanish after I explain them what I expect from them. The offer (request, plea) still stands though. If you haven't contacted me yet but think about giving it a try - do so. 

Episode 10. Yesterday I finally reached another big development milestone: finished working on the art assets. That's a big step towards the inevitable release of the awesome next episode. The writing is done, art assets are ready, now I will be spending hours upon hours assembling the scenes and testing everything. Next Episode is coming soon*

Also thank you everyone who is still here with me on Patreon   SUBSRIBESTAR! I know these are a tough times for everyone. -_-

NirvanaPilot Yume. Bought that game for my Switch. Super short but also super cheap visual novel from some Italian dude. (Both the art and the story in this game are by the same dude. I can relate) Anyway, I really enjoyed that game. Not even sure why, the story and setting just sort of clicked with me. Pro hint: during racing events never release the breaks and don't forget to use double-jump, that's the key ^^

The Legend of Heroes: Trails of Cold Steel. I play that game whenever I am in the mood and have free time (once every few days). Loving it a lot. I need to beat this one and the second installment as well and later on I will be able to play the third one on my Switch.  

NinNinDays. Bought this game for my Switch last month. A bit of a bland story but awesome art and 2 good endings that both were quite satisfactory. I know it's missing NSFW content but somehow I didn't mind the vanila romantic tone of this version.

Iris Quest Chapter 01 is out by the way. Created by DAHR and Xaljio. So yeah, you may want to look into it maybe.

And that's it I think. This week was super productive. I am very happy to finally get to coding and see the episode taking shape.

Love you all. Wash your hands and fap regularly.

113 - Still Looking For Writers.

Hi guys. How is everyone doing? This is Monday Post 113. I'm still around, you are still around. What a wonderful time to be alive. Year 2020 is just the best, isn't it?

The Writers. So, yeah, I am still looking for writers. Quite a few people got back to me offering their help. I didn't actually count the emails but if I were to estimate there were around 30+ dudes (and a couple of chicks). But it's been two weeks of endless back and forth and I still have nothing to show for it. Although there was one guy (ONLY ONE) who instantly understood what I want from him and is working on a short fun story, that I hope to use. But that's it for now. So I am still looking for writers.

That's it. Next Episode is gonna be lit, fam. I am working on art assets, drawing, inking, coloring, the usual. All in all it was a quiet and very productive week.

Nintendo Direct Mini. That Ninjala game looks interesting. Also hopefully Xenoblade remake will have some sort of swimsuit DLC. 

That's it. Love you all. Thank you for the support. Stay safe.

112 - No Too Young Looking Characters Here.*

(*Patreon is harassing artists for drawing characters who's faces look too young in their opinion. So, that's the joke.)

How is it going dudes? Welcome to Monday Post # 112. There are 52 weeks in a year by the way. Which means I'v been making these posts for 2+ years now. Without skipping a single week!
But what is the most surprising thing to me that I still have people supporting me when all I do here on Patreon is talk nonsense and offer NO rewards of any kind whatsoever. Well apart from my wholesome company and sagely advice of course. Here is to clever people still supporting me. Thank you, spic bros. (And don't even get me started on my Subscribestar bros. I fucking love all 7 of you <3)

Episode 10 is finally starting to take shape. I'm done with the writing and full at work at the art assets. Can't wait to get to the assembling the events. And I think, for now, I will refrain from counting weeks since the previous release and just concentrate on the work.

The writers. I received about a dozen replies to my call to arms. Not too many, not too few - a perfect amount to be honest. As expected managing multiple creative conversations and trying to explain people what I am looking for proved to be hectic. There are no any concrete results so far, but some progress has been made. I still want to try and push in this direction and sort of learn (managerial stuff) by doing. On the bright side no matter what comes out of it - this does not affect my regular schedule or workload so you will still be getting the regular deal. But if something actually does come out of this - you will be getting even more content. For now it looks like a win-win. But we'll see how it goes.

In my free time I am playing Rune Factory 4 on my switch. What a great game. ^_^

And that's it for today's post. Now I need to get back to work. Thank you for your support everyone. Please wash your hands and stay safe -_-

111 - Writer Wanted.

Hello Bros! Welcome to Monday Post 111. How is everyone doing? This time I actually have somethings I want to discuss with you so let's just jump right into it!
 
Writer Wanted! I am looking for a writer. The idea is as follows: I want to try and have another person write little events that would not affect the main story of SC34. I want to put those stories into the sim room and maybe update it in-between the episode releases to make the wait a bit more bearable for you.
Here is the thing though, I want to do this to increase the amount of content produced, not to slow me down while I working on the episodes. Meaning that I need somebody who could not only write but will also be willing to assemble his writing into an event. It's NOT hard to do, but takes time. 
Coder Wanted? Come to think of it it is probably not very likely that there will be a guy who would be willing to both write and assemble their writing into scenes. So maybe I also need a person who will be working on the scenes... I could send that person all the necessary files and explain how everything is done. It's not a difficult task. But it's a tedious work to be honest. I imagine any actual programmer would get bored in a matter of minutes.
Moneys? At this point I just want to test the waters so I can't hire anyone to do this. Meaning that if you want to give it a try you should be ready to do it just for the heck of it. If it works out and you story goes into the game your name and contact info will be displayed there in bold letters of course.
What am I looking for? Like I said, I just want to try if this could work or not. So I will be looking for a very short story or a series of stories. Also no matter what the story is about there will be no new costumes or backgrounds or any dedicated art for it. So you will have to work only with what is already in the game. For example if you decide to write several stories about the girls being policewomen and solving crimes along side the protagonist - that won't work since there is no police uniforms in the game.
The story must be fun, or interesting, or charming or at least anything. My literary standards are not that high and this will be just side-story stuff so you can be free to do whatever.  But you need to have the knowledge of the game to write in a similar manner if possible.
Again. I won't be able to spare any time to work on this stuff. I can send you all the game files and the codes to write the event. I can explain you how to put things together - no problem. But the rest must be up to you. I can't do it for you. 
It goes without saying that you should discuss things with me before starting to work on anything. [email protected]
There is no rush. Contact me today or next month. Or whenever. I imagine there will be a lot of problems with this. Especially at first but I still want to give it a try. 
This it for now. I better get back to work. Oh, and don't worry, next episode will be out on time: Coming Soon*

110 - Words In This Post Are Less Meaningful Than They Appear.

Sup, bros! It's Monday again! Are you ready to hear some awesome news? Well, I don't have any to share. On the bright side I don't have any bad news to share with you either and that alone is awesome news I think :)
How many centuries have passed since the release of the previous episode of SC34? I think it was 3 weeks. We are still in the green boys. Episode 10 is coming soon*

Next episode is going to be bit on a weird side. Majority of the events will be taking place in Agrabah. And that means I need to commission quite a few new backgrounds an re-work and re-draw quite a few character sprites (just like I did with the best girl in the previous episode). That being said I am doing my best to release next episode in reasonable time-frame regardless. Will I succeed? Heck if I know -_-

Is it OK if I just end this week's Monday post at this? I have a ton of work ahead of me and I really need to get to it if I want to make sure episode 10 does not take too long, like some of the previous episodes did.

Thank you for your support. Thank you for the new pledges and thank you for keeping your old pledges going. Thank you for sticking with me through thick and thin. Love you.

109 - March of Year 2020.

Hello, my dudes.
Welcome to another Monday post. How have you been? Doing well I hope. Make sure to take a good care of yourselves so that no worldly concerns distract you when Episode 10 drops. (Which will be soon*). And thank you for taking care of me with your donations. Love you all ^_^
 
It's March already. March of year 2020. Goddamn... If I am not mistaken the patrons-only release of the previous episode was 3 weeks ago, so I am still very much in the green zone when it comes to the development cycle.
The GENTLEMEN. Went to see the movie. I gotta it's really REALLY good. ^_^

Tokyo School Life. Finished Karin route first. Shed some happy manly tears. Also finished the Aoi route - enjoyed it.
Rune Factory 4 is finally out. Of course I had it pre-ordered because I needed that swimsuit DLC. I don't spend much time gaming these days, so I imagine this one will keep me entertained for months ^^

Harley Quinn TV-Series. Watched the first episode. It was surprisingly entertaining.

And that's it. As you can see I have nothing to report. But I am still alive and working. Next episode promises to be interesting. Let's hope no RL stuff will be interrupting my working schedule.

Hugs and kisses. See you next Monday.

107 - Episode 09. Public Release!

Hello. This is me - your benevolent leader. I am here today to share another amazing piece of educational material with you. Go download it and share it with you family and friends.



Thank you for all the bugs and typos reported over the week. Here is a list of things that's been fixed:

- A number of typos.

- The event button does not disappear anymore.

- A certain missing CG variation added to the CG gallery.

- A certain unfinished background replaced with the finished version.

Also I had to take out the new "shake" animation I've been using in this episode to shake the character sprites in some of the scenes. It didn't work properly with the Android build so for now the best solution is to get rid of it altogether. (You probably won't even notice this though, just some under the hood stuff).

And that's about it. I don't feel like talking much. All is good, working on Episode 10. Thank you for your support. ^_^

Oh, and you can find the new episode on my itch.io account. (akabur.itch.io/sc34) There will be no MEGA or MediFire links this time. Please don't kill me.

105 - *You see a clever post title*

Hi, dudes.
All is good. Another Monday Post on time. I am Mister Consistency. 



Yet again
I don't feel like saying much. I'm sure that's just a phase, but for the time being this will be another super short post. 


This was
another productive week. As of right now I need to write and put together Next Episode Preview event that I end every episode with. After that I will finally get to adding music and sounds and all sort of flags and variables to make sure the events work in order they are supposed to. There is still a lot of work ahead but Episode 09 is definitely coming soon*. Also next episode will introduce a new girl. It was a tough choice to make and I can't wait to see how you guys will take it.


That's it for now.
Thank you for your support. Love you.


P.S.
Starting with Episode 09 I will be making slight changes in the interface towards simplifying things. If all goes as planned this will be a quality of life change for both you - as a player and me as a creator. Also your saves will still work and you will be able to choose any episode as usual :)

104 - Getting There.

First of all!
I would like to thank every single one of my patrons. Thanks to you guys I am able to continue to exist through my Akabur persona. With your support you're making it possible for me be this weird russian creator and continue to work on my odd projects. You guys pay all my bills. If not for you I would probably have to go get a job at Russian McDonalds or something. What I am trying to say is: thank you for your support.


Yet again
I don't have much to say. This was another productive week for me. I usually feel most in peace when I'm working and see a project slowly taking form. This week I made a few posts on my Discord at the WIP channel, so if you are into that sort of thing, feel free to look there for some minor spoilers. 


That's it.
Still don't feel like talking much. Just want to get back to work. See you at the comment and on my discord.

103 - Maintaining Radio Silence.

Hi, Bros.
This week was very productive. I am supper happy about how much work I managed to get done over these 7 days. It feels good to be getting some shit done at a proper pace again. That being said this will be another super short post.


So...
I don't feel like talking much, but I know you will forgive me. Like I said above, this week was very busy for me, but in a good way. I spent a lot of time on discord chatting with people and uploaded a whole ton of all sort of spolery work-in-progress stuff from the next episode. Patrons, don't forget to sync your discord with Patreon so that Patreon-Bot could assign your proper roles :)


My Discord Server
. I even downloaded the discord app on my phone. That's how serious I am about using Discord now. Also I just shared an invite link on my twitter in case somebody out there still needs it.


Thank you
for you support. Love you all. Episode 9 will be the best thing ever. (IMHO). I'll see you all next week here, or every day on my Discord. ^^

102 - Quietly getting some work done.

Hi, Bros.
I'll keep this one short again. I am still around and working. Thank you for sticking with me through this troublesome time in my life. I really appreciate it. 


Discord.
  I've been pretty much ignoring my server up until now because I am old and new things scare me. But I decided to make an effort to force myself into using discord more often from now on. Already posted quite a few WIP pics there.


That's it.
Thank you for your patience, when I regain my standing I am sure there will be no shutting me up. But for now I feel like keeping the communication to the minimum. Thank you for understanding. 


P.S. Ep 09 is coming soon*
