April 2022 Progress Update

Happy April Fools Day! Here’s what the team was up to during March!

Demo Update

First and foremost, if you happened to miss it, we had a demo update (and a patch) that went live during the start of the month! This update comes with a Gamemaker Engine upgrade, various bug fixes and some tweaks here and there. It is available to download on Itch, Gamejolt and Steam.

Province Update

We’ve been continuing to work on the last province. Now that Olvia is complete we’ve been slowly working our way out into the surrounding areas. Our main theme for this province is “grey and rocky”, so for example areas closer to the mountains in the south will have more grey rock showing and less vegetation, while areas north towards Wiska Forest will be more green and lively. We’ve also thrown in a colorful wildflower field and a small pond ✨

Most of this work is done weekly on our Twitch channel, so feel free to stop by and get a behind the scenes preview.

And speaking of the new province, we released a short video showing off the new overworld theme!

SFX Update

We’re happy to announce that all of the previous SFXs have been updated! These SFXs have been updated to match the new battle animations, and we’ve added a few new special ones for the new provincial designs.

What’s Next?

We are continuing to work our way through creating the last province, as well as writing updates, new passive animals and so on. We’re hoping to finish off writing some difficult scenes at the end of the game in the next few months, and begin working on improving both the turn-based and debate battles!
