The current situation

So, it's been a long time, and I'm sorry about that. As things are now, there are a few ways things could go, so I wish to keep you all in the loop, and no matter what, I will not abandon the game. Once I get things back up working, the game WILL continue. Anyway, here are the possible futures:
1: I manage to get out of this corona hell and get back home, get myself a new computer. This would likely be somewhere around August.
2: I finish my current contract with my employer. This would mean that I wouldn't get back until around next februrary or march.
It still all depends on so many things, and Corona hasn't exactly made things easier... Anyway, that's it for now. I just wanted to show I'm still alive, and to the patrons, I am eternally grateful, despite the game being on hiatus. Thank you!

The game...

First and foremost, I will be posting this both on the blog and on the Patreon, to try and hit as many people as possible with the news... (Suffer with me!!!)

Second, I apologize for the long wait from the last message. I meant for it to be a month and then I could restart, but, as you will hear in this message, it wasn't meant to be. I only managed to get some safe internet to log into today, and that is why it took so long...

So, the reason why I was so busy was that I was moving abroad. To the other side of the Earth to be exact. I was planning on restarting my work on the game as soon as things settled and my computer arrived. As things would have it, however, someone in the postal service seems to have lost their bouncy castle and substituted it with my computer... I don't know what to say, other than: It's not going to be revived from whatever hell they put it through... I am in contact with the people who sent it and we are trying to get things sorted...

Thing is, I'm unlikely to get much back from it... Of the 4000$ it cost, they are unlikely to cover more than 500 - 700$ :(

I do not have the money for a new one just now, and will have to work for quite a few months to save up for the new computer. If the harddrives survived (I haven't been able to test them yet), I'll be able to ressume right away. If not, it will take a looooong time to get things back together... I had all of my stuff on my drive, so - yeah-...

As such, the game will have to be put on hold until I can get a computer...

This forced hiatus hurts me, since I want to keep working, but I can't do much. To our patrons, thank you, but let me know, either in a pm on patreon or a message on the blog, if you want your last few months of money back and we'll try and sort it out, since it remains untouched until used anyway.

Thank you for sticking with us! I hope to see you all on the other side, even though I don't know when that will be...

Regards

Year end - No release

I have just realised that there is no way I will be able to make a release for today, so I am writing here to inform you of that. As mentioned last week, there will be many weeks with no release as some things happen in my private life. I am still here, and I am still looking for times that I can spend a bit of time on the game!

Hope you are all happy and healthy as the new year approaches, and hope you had a lovely December!

7.4.7.0i is out

Content:
-Added an encounter in fuar plus more to the encounter in Fuar. Still a minor event though. (Scenes included)
-Added more to concubine Leonora (No party yet)
Fixes:
-Fixed the hospital healing quest doing a wrong switch. Should now work.


Upcoming:
-I will be redoing the journal system. It is not at all transparent to anyone, me included, when I work with it. As such, there will be some things that will and won't be added for now, as I try to ready the game for it.
Please note any wonky stuff that happens to the journal in this period of time!

Questions:
-Is the player-Onsen in the player's castle still not turning the player back to his non-bathing self after leaving?

For more bug info:

-Check the discord bug section for what bugs have been reported if you are interested.

-I know that the random events on the world map end with the player staying in his "wagon" or "ship" form and I will fix soon, promise! For now, change clothes, that should work. (In divine's private room you can change clothes)
-I realise the player walks "on top of" the stuff at the docks in the player city. Will try and fix soon.


Upcoming:

-More fixes will be deployed in upcoming releases. There are many bugs, and some take a long time to fix so I will be adding some fixes to all releases, if possible, from now on. Please, add all bug reports to the discord bug section. Adding to the blog posts can work, though I don't always get to check back to earlier posts if I didn't get to fix it for the current release. Discord is ultimately the best place to report.

-I realised I have done something wrong for a long time. If you find events where the characters you speak with seem to weirdly not turn towards you, let me know which so I can fix them!

__________________________________________

Quick note: Yes, I am using a template for this first part of my posts. This helps make things easier for me, so, yeah :P

Anyway, this week's release is finally out!

Some information about the upcoming period of time:
I will not be able to do regular releases for a long time. I am having a large change in my life at the moment, and I am, as a result, busy for the foreseeable future. I estimate that I will be able to get back into a regular schedule around April. Until then, I will be unable to do weekly releases, and the releases I do manage to do might be smaller than normal. I will do my best to keep doing something to keep the game evolving, but I can't guarantee anything at the moment, sorry.

Anyway, what you are here for!

A huge thanks to you guys for playing the game, and a huge thanks to our patrons for supporting us.

That's it for this week! Hope everyone has a Happy christmas if they celebrate that, and if not, a happy whatever else there is out there! And, when the new year comes, have a nice one of those too, will ya? ;) My best wishes go out to everyone. A huge thanks for this year, should I be unable to do a real release before the new year!

_______________________________________

So, this week's (and last week's) release is here! I had some time to add some more stuff to this release thanks to the extra week. The upcoming next few months will be very busy for me, so I am trying to get as much done with the game as I can, while I can. As such, I can't promise that the next few months will be structured that well, or will have that much content, but I will do my best to make it bearable to play!

Again, thank you so much for playing, I do this for the people playing it, and seeing the number of people still playing is truly heartwarming!

Another huge thanks go out to our patrons. Thank you so much!

Next week's release

This week I won't have a release. I want to do some more work on the current build, so that is why.
I encourage everyone to report any bugs they encounter so I can take a look at them and fix them!

Release 7.4.7.0g

We've got another release coming!

Content:
-Added a few new parts to the main-quest.
Fixes:
-Fixed the casino events that I have added these last few turns. Now they will properly reset upon re-entry into the casino.
-Fixed two instances of enemies not vanishing after dying. The main quest can now go on!
-The casino now no longer sends you into an eternal loop of happiness upon entering.
For more bug info:

-Check the discord bug section for what bugs have been reported if you are interested.

-I know that the random events on the world map end with the player staying in his "wagon" or "ship" form and I will fix soon, promise! For now, change clothes, that should work. (In divine's private room you can change clothes)
-I realise the player walks "on top of" the stuff at the docks in the player city. Will try and fix soon.

-More fixes will be deployed in upcoming releases. There are many bugs, and some take a long time to fix so I will be adding some fixes to all releases from now on.

-I realised I have done something wrong for a long time. If you find events where the characters you speak with seem to weirdly not turn towards you, let me know which so I can fix them!

With this addition, I hope the game has some new content for everyone since the main quest is no longer blocked. Let me know if I'm wrong since that wouldn't be the first time...
