Weekly Update 2018-05-09
Another week past, another quick update. Nanami’s first act has been completed and we are moving on to Lupita’s. Completion at this point of course only means written and coded. At this rate, we fully expect to have Act I for all of the characters completed before the end of the month.
Assembly of the new system is progressing smoothly. Dual employment sucks, but again, at this rate, it will be a short lived inconvenience.
While we are using our Patreon income to purchase hardware, and making contributions out of pocket ourselves, there is an opportunity for others who may not wish to become patrons but would like to help us past this roadblock.
If anyone is interested in helping support our endeavor but is looking for an alternate method of contribution, Amazon gift cards are an excellent resource. We are purchasing all of our hardware through Amazon because not only do we get top notch customer service, but we can insure the parts for an extra ten bucks and get it next day.
And while we’re on the topic of alternative methods of support. We are also happy to accept Daz 3D gift cards as well. We make it a habit to purchase all of our digital assets from Daz to ensure maximum compatibility with the plug-ins and upgrades we’ve acquired. Through either Amazon or Daz, you can avoid doing business with Patreon and still support our project.
Any contribution will earn you recognition in the game credits and for any contribution over $100, we’ll put together a custom render for you using a character of your choice.
