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!
Hey everyone, it's time for another devlog!ヾ(○･ω･)ﾉ☆
It's barely been two weeks since the Kawaii Festival and we've already found our way back into the production of //TODO: today and Brassica.
In this devlog we'll give you a quick overview on our plans for the next few weeks, look back at our experience at the Kawaii Festival, talk a little bit about taxes and all the other things you have to think (and learn) about when starting an indie games studio, and finish off with some more insights in recent //TODO: today art production.
So let's get started!
We've been pretty busy with preparations for the Kawaii Festival recently so this devlog will mostly focus on that, but there's some other news as well so let's get started!
In preparation of the Kawaii Festival in Berlin on the 27th July. We've kept ourselves busy with organising our booth as well. We had to divert our attention from //TODO: today production to design a friendly sticker set and prepare art prints...
Hey hey, after last week's impromptu post we're back with a proper devlog!
There's a lot of things to talk about this time, the most obvious being the release of the Defaction demo!
As you most likely noticed, we weren't able to keep our goal of releasing it on June 29th and had to delay the release until the 3rd of July.
As we already mentioned, the reason why we had to do this were a couple of game-breaking bugs that we discovered in the night we meant to release the game.
Aside from one, most of them were close to being edge cases but we still didn't feel comfortable releasing a game that could potentially end up in a situation where the player couldn't progress anymore.
And on the bright side, delaying the release a few days let us squeeze in some last minute playtesting which improved a few other aspects of the game further...
Some of you might've noticed that the Defaction demo didn't launch on the 29th June as we've stated before. And we're really sorry about it! ( T^T)/
We've tweeted about it on the 29th and yesterday. The main reason for the delay were issues with bugs that appeared right when everything was coming together on the Friday night of the release. We could've fixed the bugs after the release and patched the game at a later date but a few prevented the player from making progress - they were game breaking. So we thought it wiser to hold off the release until things got solved. Felix worked hard to make the demo work as intended and Rohan had the time to edit some flaws out of the art assets. Things are definitely better now and we thank you for your patience! ヾ(○･3･)ﾉ
So here it is! Enjoy a first taste of Defaction! ✧･ﾟ
