Heya guys! Hope that you guys had a good weekend! Mine was mostly filled with getting stuff to and from artist, so there's that. Anyway, let's get this started!
So for this week I'll mostly be focusing on Jikage Rising as always! I'm getting someone to redo the animations as many of you wanted it. And there's also quite a bit of stuff that I need to do with the rework of how arc 2 works! These are mostly really boring stuff, but necessary unfortunately. Normally I work on it in the background like how the code was reworked while the game progressed, but this one came a bit suddenly, so I'll have to deal with this with everyone watching instead of having it done backstage like I do with most stuff. Couple of issues with doing it this way, mostly cause content will be pushed back cause Doggo is but one dog, and people aren't interested in stuff like this and are normally focused on/only consider the scenes that are added as "new content". That, together with the two week development time I get for each release kinda makes the schedule kinda tight. I was going somewhere with this, but I forgot, so I'll stop here haha.
The coder that was hired is currently working on the interface that I had in mind as I deal with other aspects of the game. To go a bit deeper on the idea, I'm thinking of a mission system where instead of you heading out to do missions, you now send people out to do things for you, just like an actual promotion in real life. Certain missions will be unlocked as you progress through the story, it'll be essential for you to collect items such as new outfits, intel and reputation. With the new system, you also won't need to travel to the other villages personally, and will instead be operating from a base in Konoha, I'll probably also get Raiha to draw the bathhouse scenes that a lot of you wanted, but no promises yet, he's kinda working on a lot of things at the moment. I'll get a proper post up as soon as the system starts nearing completion, so look forward to it!
As for The Star Cove Incident (guess this is it's name now lol), I'll continue working on the halfdone gallery as well as UI that I was working on! Was also kinda wondering what you guys thought of the releases so far, anything too confusing/out of place/ cringy?
Well as always here's the TL/DR!
Jikage Rising (ETA: v1.03 20th Feb for Patrons, v1.02 6th March for the Public)
-Reworking the system for arc 2 (again)
-Probably another bonus girl
-Getting new sprite art done cause of the rework
Star Cove Incident (ETA: 6th March for Patrons, 20th Feb for Public)
-Adding in the gallery
-Adding in UI
-Zen's secong event
-Jaina's fall event (dependent on choices you've made so far)
-Spelling and grammar corrections
Also as per usual, here are my other stuff! Do check it out if you're interested yeah!
I need a break soon lol
