The sun is currently BURNING over here in Germany… relatively speaking at least. So far we had an unexpectedly hot summer and it doesn’t exactly help for the development. Still, we kept working and made some good progress in July. And now it’s time for another progress report!
Final To Do List Update
In July we kept working on end game content, getting closer to the final conclusion of the story. Overall, we’re still optimistic that all mandatory content will be completed in September.
However, since work went slower than expected due to the heat, we might have to postpone the release of a couple optional quests to a (free) update after the 1.0 release. We decided it’s more important to focus on the main story content and polishing rather than cramping in 100% of all quest we originally planned. All of these quest will be relevant for the end game, so you can still enjoy them when you’re at the very end of the plot.
Anyway, here a few more spoiler-free impressions of recent development:
We made a lot of progress with Rhombus Square, which now features a fancy overview map to travel around quickly!
New parts of the city have been added! While you won’t be able to visit every spot of the city in version 1.0, it’s still gonna be a huge place!
We also started adding interiors for some of the buildings. Here a fancy equipment store!
And here the item store! That’s exactly how supermarkets will look like in the future, right?
Also in work: new quests. This one is pretty basic, really. Nothing unusual going on here. Next image!
A lot of (more important) NPCs now have fully colored portraits, including all of the faction leaders and the beloved Master Sensei!
Finally we also found the time to further improve the Equipment Menu! You now see equipment icons in the middle. There are even fancy animations as you can see here
RELEASE DATE WHEN?
We promised to announce the release date in “early August”, but we’d like to have another week before we finally do it! That’s mostly because we want to prepare something nice before that. Don’t worry, it will still be in September.
And that’s all for now. Stressful times lay ahead of us, but things are looking good!
Until next time!
