Hey everyone, I’m CykaDev!
I know I should’ve posted the weekly news on Tuesday, but I waited until today so that I could wish you all…
A very happy new year!
I know 2020 has been tough for all of us, and if there’s one thing we should remember, it’s that we managed to get through it together. Despite all the pain and suffering this year has brought us, let’s take a bit of time to be positive! 2021 can only get better, right?
There are so many things I wish I could tell you all, but I feel like I wouldn’t get my point across through text. I wanted to make a video for today, but sadly, as I am staying at my family’s to enjoy the break, I do not have access to my home studio (AKA my computer, but I feel like home studio makes it seem like I’m an important person.).
Now, there’s one thing I wanted to tell you all about next year and our game. We will be entering 2021, which will be our third year working on Seikatsu, and I know the wait is getting longer and longer. I won’t lie to you, all the delays we have accumulated on the proofreading (not mine, the actual proofreading) and on the art are daunting… Which is why I think there’s going to be a change of plans. I will be giving the rest of my proofreading (so about 1/3 left of the game) my all, so that I can get some royalty-free sprites ready and publish the game as early as I can this year. It’ll have to be listed as an early access game, and I’ll be counting on you all to report the bugs and the (countless) mistakes I’ll have missed, but the game will be coming out as soon as possible. We’ve waited long enough, and even though it won’t be entirely proofread by Sakura, it’ll still hopefully be a great story for you to discover.
That’s it for today. 2020 is coming to an end, and I hope you’re all enjoying this special day with your families (and your friends, if you’re all social distancing and wearing masks!). I will forever be grateful for your support, and mark my words: we’re getting stuff done in 2021. I’ll have exciting projects and ideas for when Seikatsu will finally be released. It’s been three years, but this is only the beginning!
Stay safe and stay awesome.
Happy new year! Love you all,
