It's been a while since the announcement of the second place winner, but we are finally ready to reveal who took the top spot of the Bestest Cupcake Poll!
While the ranking was still very close during the first few days of the poll, eventually someone developed quite a bit of a lead and only increased it towards the end. We won't keep it any longer from you, so without drawing it out any further:
With a total of 17 votes the first place winner is...
We're back with the next part of the Bestest Cupcake Poll results, today with the second place winner.
As we mentioned last time, there was only a one vote difference between third and second place but that's still one more vote they got!
While we watched the results unfold over the voting period, they were actually neck and neck with Snow fighting for first place! Before someone else gained traction and pushed them down to second and third place respectively...
But anyway, with 12 votes, //TODO: today's second bestest cupcake is...
It's been some time since the //TODO: today Bestest Cupcake Poll ended, but we're finally ready to announce the results!
To make things a little more exciting, we decided to split up the announcement into three parts and today we'll start with the third place.
It was a pretty close race and even with 77 total votes, a single vote could have made the difference between who's third and who's second.
It was so close that we actually have two third place winners! The two of them are even acquainted and probably don't mind sharing this title. But without further ado, with 11 votes each the Third Bestest Cupcakes are...
Today we have another status update for you to let you know about our plans for Act 3 of Brassica and what else lies ahead in the near future.
As we previously mentioned, we'll be at the A MAZE. this week and are already pretty excited for that!
But because we're away that also means that the announcement of the results of the //TODO: today Bestest Cupcake Poll and what we had planned to make this more special has to wait until we're back again.
For a few months now, we had also been meaning to finish and release the //TODO: today Special Edition Zine and a small content update for the game that adds some final polish along with more artworks. Because it had been quite a while since the release of Act 1, we prioritized Brassica over that but now that Act 2 is released we decided to briefly go back to //TODO and tie up the last few loose ends before we focus on Brassica's Act 3 again...
As you probably noticed, we ran into a bit of a delay again but we're happy to announce that the full Act 2 of Brassica is now released!
The most significant change in this update is the addition of a whole new part of the story with several branches and lots of opportunities to get to know the princes better~
Among minor changes are the fix of an issue where sprites were distorted while skipping through the game. However this is currently only fixed for Act 1 we'll release another update in the coming days where we'll also fix this for Act 2 but because we were already under time pressure, we prioritized getting the actual content done and didn't want to delay the release much more.
On top of that update, we'll also add some more music for more variety during travel scenes, which should also happen some time between now and the release of Act 3 (but probably in the nearer future).
There are also a few more CGs planned for Act 2 that we will add in a coming update but until then we hope just the sprite animations and the text will be enough for you to enjoy the story...
