We'll start off with some good news~
Last Friday we finally announced the release date for the full version of //TODO: today!
The game will be released on September 28th along with a special edition bundle including a bonus zine and the soundtrack.
But you can still get the whole game for free if you want.
Other than that we have been releasing some videos where we play through the first half of the game and comment on its development and give some behind the scenes info. So far three videos are released, the rest of which will follow later this week...
We're still busy finishing up part 2 of //TODO: today but here's our usual status report!
In our last devlog we wrote that we were predicting that we would have everything finished within the first two September weeks. Well, the first one is almost over and there's still a lot to do. Which means that we still can't say for sure on which day we will release the full game.
We will announce the date next week when it's easier for us to predict how much time we need exactly so stay tuned for that.
Something else we will post next week is the video we've been meaning to make for a while now.
And well, we've thought of something special in light of the upcoming release of //TODO: today's second half (∩❛ڡ❛∩)
But now to the part where we talk about what we've been up to since the last devlog...
Development for the second half of //TODO: today is nearing its end but there are still plenty of tasks ahead of us.
We are pretty certain now that the release will be within the first two September weeks but this is as specific as we can be right now.
Of course we'll announce a more exact date once we know that we will be able to finish everything by then, so stay tuned!
Since this is the final stretch of production, most of our work is pretty deep in spoiler territory. We could show you a fancy new background or talk about the part of the story we recently rewrote, but... you'll probably enjoy it more if you see those in-game...
Today we released another update for Brassica but unfortunately we had to cut it back a little again.
Our initial plan was to release the full 2nd act but because we are also working on finishing up //TODO: today right now, that didn't quite work out.
Because the second half of //TODO: today has been delayed over and over again for more than a year at this point it's currently our main priority. So as it looks now, we won't be able to release any more content updates for Brassica until //TODO: today is done (which will most likely only be a few weeks at this point).
BUT back to the good news: today's update includes the first couple of scenes of act 2! It's less than half the length of the full act but we hope you'll still enjoy it and that it will bridge the gap a little until we can fully focus on Brassica again.
We're really grateful to anyone who has bought the game so far and we'll be back to work on updates for it as soon as we can!
Aside from the content additions, there haven't really been any changes this time around but if you want you can still take a look at the full release notes in our changelog.
We hope you'll enjoy this update and we'll be back as soon as there are more news!
Today we released a big-ish update for Brassica - A Marry Tale with a lot of additional polish and some bugfixes for Act 1!
Content-wise there were only minor changes so you probably won't even notice any differences in the text but in terms of presentation the game now has sprites for the NPCs, a lot more animations, and a lot more sound!
Partly because of these updates to act 1 and because act 2 has a lot more content than this first act, we unfortunately have to delay the release of act 2 to next week. But we'll keep you updated with that!
For the full list of changes, you can take a look at our Changelog and we hope you have fun with Brassica!
