So you’re probably wondering what’s been goin’ on behind the scenes. In the writing department, quite a lot. Common Route is pretty much fully drafted with the exception of some revisions and editing. The word count is estimated at around 150,000 words, but might grow considerably after everything’s finalized. The demo of the entire Common Route won’t be released any time soon though, but I’ll make sure to keep you all updated in the meanwhile.
We’ve also made some headway with the Heroine Routes, and we plan on writing a good portion of them over the summer if all goes well. How much exactly? I can’t say for sure. The writers work at different paces, so it’s hard to tell, but I’m sure we’ll find our rhythm after a while of writing.
The art has been progressing slowly, but surely. As evidence, I present you a draft from DizzyWorld2 of Elizabeth in her work uniform. <3
Also, most of the backgrounds for Common Route are finished. We’ll be reusing some of them for the Heroine Routes, but we’re still planning on having more for specific scenes. We still have a position open for another BG artist, but I’ll touch on that later.
Concerning Lucid9′s OST, it’s been at a stalemate. In all honesty, we haven’t had much luck with composers. We’ve had around… four, I think, which explains the music’s inconsistency in the demo. The composers either left due to disinterest, lack of time, or because they were unable to compose for free anymore. In any case, I’m confident we’ll be able to solve this dilemma soon, so no worries there.
When it comes to the engine, Cloud Novel is making huge strides. The creators are adding a ton of new features, making VN creation a breeze. They’re now open for public beta testing, so why not sign up today and check it out for yourselves? I promise you, you won’t regret it. http://cloudnovel.net/
In other news, the trailer for Lucid9 has been finished and should appear in Sekai Project’s monthly wrap-up in a few days. I’ll be posting the trailer on our social media sites--Twitter, Facebook, Youtube, etc.—once it’s debuted, so stay tuned for that!
And lastly, Fallen Snow Studios are currently accepting new members. You can find all the information on our site under the Apply section. There are two positions listed right now, but we’ll be adding more in the coming week.
I think this wraps up today’s post. It was longer than I expected. I still feel like I’m forgetting something… meh, probably nothing. Thanks for reading, and I’ll catch you all in the next post!
