It’s finally here and all I can say is that I am genuinely sorry for the delay.
I don’t want to get personal, but when someone tells me “It’s almost ready.” I believe them.
Then a week goes by, and I get told, “It’s just about done, a few more renders and we’re good to go.” I give them the benefit of the doubt.
When week three comes and goes and I’m told “Nope, just a few visuals and I’m finished.” That is when I start asking the hard questions.
And then when I find out that only half the work is actually done, I flip my shit and take over.
It took many late nights these last couple of weeks, but myself and Fecal busted our asses to close that gap, and now we have.
What was Delivered?
For $5 Patrons we’ve published the immediate version. We anticipate as people play through it a bug or two may appear here or there, but we’ll get those fixed and next week we’ll throw the links up for all $1 Patrons.
Four weeks from now, we’ll publish the public version which by that point should be void of typos, bugs and errors.
This release contains the “remastered” pool scene as well as the first encounter with your wife, Emily. Both sequences have been extended and rendered using all of our new tools and techniques.
The dialogue is expanded and choices a bit more complex, both of which should lead to a richer story beyond here.
The release lacked a few key things that we hoped to have, like animations, but we’ll come back and fill those in at a later date. We simply couldn’t push this out another couple of weeks while we built four or five animations to round out the sex scenes. We have to get back on track, simple and sweet.
Next we will work on the Monica and Lupita introductions which should bring us 50% of the way to where we left off. However, we’re going to temporarily break from the monthly updates and switch back to the micro-updates that everyone loves and hates.
So look for Monica’s release to come in about two weeks or so, and then immediately after that we’ll post Lupita’s. Sometime during that period we’ll host a poll to see which character patrons and players would like us to focus on developing first.
We need to get back on our development schedule fast! So look for the next few updates to come much quicker than this one.
Another immediate task will be updating the walkthrough and getting that posted in the next 24 hours. After that we’ll get the next poll up and try to ease back into the regular flow of things. Teasers, desktops and all that.
So stick around. We lost velocity there for a moment but we’re rounding the next star and hope to slingshot back up to cruising speed rather quickly.
We at Ianvs Salute You!
