while I was working on my other game (Inevitable Relations) I noticed that most of the ideas I had, didn't really work out and that I need a little break from working on that project. The main reason for that is that I made the mistake of not stepping back and it ended up biting me in the ass. I realize that the last update was released a bit over a year ago, but with the removal of my Patreon page I decided to release the updates when I think they are ready and when I'm happy with them. And so far that's not the case, which sucks. That's not supposed to mean I'm not working on it though, I still do and won't stop until the game is finished, however long that might take.
That said after I realized that I need to step back I thought I could revamp my little side project. The initial idea only was to redo a few renders, rewrite the code a little and make it more interactive. Well it turned out to be a bit more than that. Keep in mind we're still talking about a very early Alpha version here, so there isn't much content yet. The most important thing is though that I had a lot of fun making the new renders so far. And I hope that continues until I have enough to finally have a real first demo version instead of just a very short not really comprehensive excuse for a demo.
With all the changes made, I also thought that the name A Broken Family doesn't really fit the narrative of the game, so I made the decision to change the name to Dark Fate Chronicles. In addition to the different name I changed Julie quite a bit. She now has short hair (which I think looks phenomenal) and she has a bit of an attitude now. I'm not sure yet if I'm gonna change her so much that she's more of an Android or enhanced human or whatever you wanna call it and not a "Terminator" anymore. But like I said that's still under consideration.
As for the story, I mentioned that I want to make it more interactive, so instead of the typical choices menus I added choice screens that I think turned out to look pretty good and just make it feel nicer than with the normal choice menus.
If you have any ideas, criticism or general feedback, please let me know. :)
