You’ve probably noticed it’s been a long ass time since we’ve wrote anything here. In our defence, riting blogz iz hard, man. I wonder how the hell people do it for a living.
Anyway, as an apology for keeping you guys in the dark I’m going to write one long update today.
A few days ago, one of our PR guys, Sean, attended the Gaming Convention GenCon and handed out 100 fliers advertising Lucid9. So if you’re one of those 100 people, thanks for checking out our website!
Here’s Sean handing out the fliers along with the complimentary kittens. (I’m just kitten around. We can’t afford 100 cats, the colored ink was expensive enough.)
I’m excited to say we have a few new tracks made by our composer 13lueH0ur. (Seems like I can’t directly embed audio into this post, so I’ll have to settle for a link to our Soundcloud.) So please click here to feel like a badass.
Yuuko’s holding his own with the BGs, as you can see in the test scene above featuring Misaki in downtown Isamu. I still wonder how he manages to get the BGS to look so damn pretty. Sorry, Yu. I meant “handsome”.
If you’ve played the demo, some of you probably noticed we have a few easter eggs scattered around in the backgrounds. Do they mean something important? You’ll have to wait until Lucid9 is released to find out. For now, we’ll let you all speculate. And then we’ll laugh at how far off your guesses are. (Evil, I know.)
Recently, Dizzy began sketching drafts of the CGs for Common Route. Sadly I can’t share them right now because that will ruin the experience for you guys seeing them in-game. So I’ll leave you with, “they look fantabulous.”
Elphaze is working on matching the male characters art style to the females, and she’s doing a pretty damn good job, if you ask me. Here’s a draft of Yahiko she sketched up the other day. (Sexy, I know.)
- Common Route
Writing has been going well. Luna Chai is handling some of the revisions and foreshadowing in Common Route. Immediately after that business is settled, the editors should be doin’ they thang and sprucing up the drafts. The release date for the Common Route demo is still undetermined right now, but I’ll let you all know as soon as that changes.
- Heroine Routes
Clestae and Player have started drafting the first few days of their routes, and I should be writing soon as well once I sort out a few more things. At some point, we’ll need to schedule a Writer’s Meeting to discuss ironing out the links between all of the routes. That should be fun.
Aaaaand looks like that’s all. To sum it up, we be doin’ da workz. If you have any questions about anything feel free to write us here or at our forums or through carrier pigeon. As always, thanks for reading and I’ll see you in the next post.
