I have started working on the Bonus Episode and it's coming along very nicely. I have little to say about it at this point because I'm trying to keep the details a secret. I can say that I'd like to have it released sometime early in January if I can.
I know you guys are sad to hear Avalon is ending. I have heard it from many different people. And I hear it at least twice a day. I know you guys are disappointed. And trust me, the one thing I hate doing is disappointing people. Every time someone tells me they think I should keep going with Avalon, I get discouraged. I really need your support on Penny's project. I made a ton of mistakes in Avalon. I've been ready for a new project for months which you can see in Avalon because I keep favoring Penny.
I love Avalon. It was so much fun to make, I learned a lot and I received a ton of feedback from it. I have a better idea of what the audience wants, I'm more comfortable with sex scenes, my renders are better, my coding is better. I want to start a new project with all this new knowledge and skill. Avalon was always meant to be a practice novel. I don't have any more story to offer with it. I have to move on.
On another note, I did make a terrible mistake. I went onto F95 and looked at the recent comments and reviews. I cannot believe how vile and terrible people have become on that site. Some people said that they hate Penny, others mentioned how atrocious my writing is, there's an outcry about how little sexual content Avalon has and one guy thinks I'm a man-hater.
I'm one of the luckiest developers; I have the best fans. They've been so encouraging and constructive and helpful, I couldn't ask for a better fanbase. You guys are my heroes and your support means so much to me. Sincerely, thank you. And for those defending Avalon on the Forums of F95, you're the warriors! Thank you so much for being so kind!
As for the F95 crowd, don't shit in your sandbox. New developers are probably working their asses off on passion projects that take months, or years, to make. And it takes time to develop the skills to do this well. It's not just one skill they're learning either. You have to learn how to write, how to code, how to render or draw, how to do post-work, and a host of other extremely difficult to master skills. This is where you guys come to enjoy yourselves, it is in your best interest for these developers to get experience, grow, and do better. Be encouraging, be supportive. I promise you'll see less abandoned work this way.
One last thing; I did have a little hiccup with the latest release. Dallas's poly content isn't showing for a lot of people. I've already fixed the issue. I'm going to make a few more minor adjustments to Avalon and release a fixed version. Thanks for your patience and understanding!
I don't have any previews or spoilers but here's an old banner I wanted to use but ended up not.
Thanks for reading and I hope you all have a wonderful week.
Farewell for now!
