Hey everyone, CykaDev here!

Alright, so you may have noticed we finally have a placeholder on the screenshot. Finally, a character! If you don’t remember her, it’s Aya, the first character we showed on our screenshots. As of now, she’s only a very basic placeholder… Cloudi’s working on some insane sprites!

So, let’s talk about our progress this week! Our average lines per day keeps increasing, and our estimated time left before finishing the writing keeps decreasing: good news, good news! We’ve finally done over 200.000 words, and it keeps going up (I think I reached 210.000 today?). Word counts are actually much more accurate than line counts, since we can directly estimate how many hours of gameplay we have with a simple calculation: 210.000/250, 250 being the amount of words a normal human can read per minute… That makes 840 minutes, so 14 hours! And we’re only gonna reach 1/4 of the project soon. There’s still a lot to do!

I think that’s it for this week: sadly, there’s not much more we can say. I wish I could tell you more, but the concept of the game still is a secret… But hey, we’re getting there! Time flies, and we’ve almost finished 25% of the project. That’s incredible, when you think about it!

Thanks to everyone for the support, both on social media and on Patreon! I’ll be seeing you next week in our weekly news 🙂
