Hey everyone, CykaDev here!
And I’m one day late again! I’m not gonna move the news to Tuesdays like I did with Mondays, though, I promise. I told myself I should take care of it yesterday, but I totally forgot and massively facepalmed this morning.
Now that the usual apology for my lack of punctuality is out of the way, let’s get to the usual weekly business.
I’m still hard at work on the fifth and last “route” of the VN. While the four other ones were really interesting to write, I’d say this one is more of a… disturbing one. While I don’t wanna spoil too much, I do want to say I hope I’ll be able to channel the feelings I have while I’m writing so that you’ll go through a wide array of emotions during your playthrough!
Other than that, I’m just really happy with the way things are as of now. Even when life has its lows, it’s still a pleasure to see that the community we built is still (relatively) thriving, and that I can count on you all to support our projects. Reaching the end of the writing phase of this project is like the end of a big part of my life (up until now), and while I don’t wanna see it end, I do want to see what you guys will think of our work! Still got a bit to do, but we’re getting closer everyday.
Stats time, baby.
We currently have 1.660.000 words for about 341.000 lines. I’m writing a bit slower than usual, I’ll admit, but I don’t wanna mess up this “route” as it’s something specific I want to spend time on as much as I can. I’d rather have quality over quality, and I think it’s the same for you all.
And now that the stats are out of the way, we’re moving on to the part 90% of our readers immediately skip to, and that is… the CONCRETE INFORMATION CORNER!
This week, we’re gonna have a little focus on our protagonist! Shika Haruno (Her first name’s Haruno, don’t get confused) is a second year in high school, and you’ll be following her story in Shimoto, a fictional town, during her first ten days in a new school. She lives with her mother, Miyake, and her brother, Nagao.
That’s all we have for this week! There are many more things you should know about these characters and how they ended up here, but since the goal of the CIC is to give you an overview of the story, I don’t want it to spoil the game too much. Hopefully that was satisfying enough 🙂
This is it for this week. Thanks for your attention, and see you next week!
