Update

Fri, 05/31/2013 - 21:52 -- BlueWinds

So, it's been a while, but I figured I should give everyone a heads up on the status of the project here.

The offbeatr campaign now has enough votes - thanks everyone who stopped by! On the other hand, Offbeatr requires a deposit before you can launch a project, and until my next paycheck comes in, I can't afford it. Hopefully in the next week or so here. Being broke sucks, and there's only so much rice I can eat. ^^;;

With regards to work on the actual game, I have been focusing on version two - the demo I released earlier isn't updated (and won't be, since one of the rewards for support is early access to beta versions), but I've been making good progress on the engine. The new version has a very clean API which will make creating new content easy, and I'm very happy with the elegant solution I came up with for the interface between "game data" - your history, the choices you've made, the current game state - and "content", ie actions and events that will occur in the future.

Nerdy programming stuff most people don't care about. Here, have a picture of a naked woman instead.

Hello, I tried several times to vote for you on offbeatr, but I couldn't, it wont let me, if you know about common issues with offbeatr, let me know, if you don't, anyway I wanted to show you support and thankyou for the great work, I've been checking your page twice a week for a long time now

Pardon me if this question has been answered somewhere, but I wasn't able to find anything. I tried to ask it on the offbeatr page, but you can't make comments until you're a supporter, and I can't be a supporter until the project opens...

The current brothels.im project uses images taken from outside sources almost without exception (Unless I'm horribly mistaken. If so, my apologies.). How are you planning to create images for an entirely new game with original characters? Will you draw them yourself or are you planning to recruit an artist to assist you? Could we have a sample of the sort of artwork we can expect?

The project is currently waiting for me to launch it, which requires a downpayment I can't afford until the end of the week. Annying that they took the page down, making it innaccessible to everyone until that happens, but nothing I can do about it.

I am not planning on creating entirely original images. They will still be mostly found, though I am considering comissioning a few custom pieces here and there.

On Saber got the sheath but still need Rin visits. Assume I need more to remove Rin visits but is that part available to do?
A building coming available message came up but nothing happened. Wrong or incomplete?

Does anyone know what's going on with this there hasn't been an update in almost a month. I was just curious if this dev blog has died like the rest usually do
