April Fools has been a few days ago, but this year we didn't plan a prank. Instead, we wanted to write another short story that ties into Brassica.
As these things tend to go with us, we underestimated how long writing it would take, so we've only just finished it this weekend. Primarily because it ended up being about four times as long as our Valentine's Short Story from 2019...
In any case, without further ado, here is "A Day of Avril," a short story focusing on a younger Prince Hans and a mischievous princess named Avril...
A lot has happened since our last devlog in August, so to keep you up to date on what's been going on here at BL+ we just posted our second video devlog!
Just as last time you can find a transcript at the end of this post, and subtitles will be added to the video over the coming days.
Thanks for your interest in our projects, and without further ado, here's the devlog:
Today we released a small update for EGOLOGIC with new music and some additional polish. Namely a splash screen with our new (and previously unreleased) logo, and credits. We also edited parts of the script a little more, changed a few expressions here and there to fit the text better, but other than that there were no content changes.
The new music was added to moments that were previously silent, so the atmosphere in these scenes should be a lot better now!
As always, you can find the full list of changes in our changelog.
We will keep releasing updates to add some extra polish to the game that we didn't have time for before its initial release, but as the game itself is complete, our main focus will shift back to Brassica starting this month. But we'll tell you more about all of that in our upcoming devlog!
Thanks for your interest in our games, and we hope you'll enjoy this update!
EGOLOGIC has now emerged from the darkness!
We apologize for the delay and to anyone who waited for the game. At the same time we're really grateful for the support and patience you have shown us! Thank you! <3
The project definitely enjoyed a good upgrade in the last month compared to what we've initially imagined it would be. EGOLOGIC was a dive into the unknown! Looking at our history as Boys Laugh + we were curious to create a project with an overall dark theme. Simply because we've never done it before. And we wanted it to be short. But you know how that turns out most of the time...EGOLOGIC expanded into something different, questioning and even eerie unlike its sibling projects //TODO: today or Brassica.
Without spoiling what exactly this new story is, a short introduction: A young adult, Tâm, moves into an apartment building located in the middle of the forest. Soon after meeting two of his new neighbours, he gets entangled in a mess he could never have imagined. It's up to you and your choices to shine a light on what is transpiring in this forest!
As we've announced before, there'll be a release sale to the 13th of October. The game will be available for a 13% discount until then.
You can get this narrative game on itch.io. (σ･з･)σ
A final note: Small updates adding and polishing bits of script, visuals and sound will come out over the next few weeks. It's unlikely save files will be affected by this.

We recently announced that we would release EGOLOGIC on September 30th, but as that date is drawing near, we've realized that it would be best for the game to take an additional few days to finalize it.
Over the last few weeks we revised large parts of the story, and with that also expanded it quite a lot. This additional workload was not accounted for in our original schedule :(
So instead of rushing the last few assets and tasks to make the deadline, we decided to release it a week later on October 6th.
The game will be better for it, and we think that makes it worthwhile for both you and us.
Taking this delay into account, we also extended the launch sale by a week, so you'll be able to get the game at 13% off until October 13th!
Thanks for your patience and we hope you'll enjoy the game when it's ready!
