Writing has been progressing the most lately, with a majority of the routes near the mid point of the first act (and one technically on the second act). The scripts did have to undergo a few revisions both content-wise and stylistically, but I would say that they're shaping up quite nicely compared to when we first started writing.
Art is also picking up again now that Elphaze and Dizzy are somewhat free from their personal obligations. Masato, Yahiko, Airi, and Akira all have their first outfit and pose completed and colored. Lucid9 has a large cast of characters—around 16 for the next part—so there's a lot of work involved concerning sprite creation. Consequently, CGs for the routes haven't been decided on quite yet, since we want to be methodical in choosing the best scenes to include them in. I'm especially excited for those.
ALSO! Here's a drawing of Yama that Elphaze had created. It's not an official asset, but it certainly gives off a certain vibe that'll be present in the next part of Lucid9. Hope you guys love him as much as I do!
That's all the interesting news for now! Apologies for the short update this time around. Again, we can't thank you guys enough for your patience and support. Please be sure to leave a review for Inciting Incident on our Steam page if you haven't yet, and feel free to drop a rating on our VNDB page when you can.
Until next time!
