Slight Delay

Normally I only make a blog when I actually have something to add, but since I'm spammed left and right when the game will be out, I'll have to say there is a slight delay.

I still don't have everything to finish the game, but the delay won't be long!

...Maybe I should just be evil and say the game is delayed to 2015, so I can work in in peace and suddenly release the game next week instead. x3

Introducing a New Feature

This was more or less going to be used as a new feature for the next game, but between waiting for the last few Western Edition illustrations for the birthing/pregnancy system, the last record lines from a few of the voice actresses and spending days fixing/perfecting spellings...I decided to use some of the time to introduce the new feature for this game instead!

Property purchase, letting you buy and own every blacksmith, tavern, inn etc. in the game!
Different businesses also gives different bonuses, like free drinks, sleeping for free, increased stock and so on, so not just for show and/or personal satisfaction.

Almost Finished!

We're nearly there, all loose ends in-game are now tied up and pretty much all the content is there with the only exception of adding some side-quests to make a few areas feel less empty...and I still need to get a few of the CG scene illustrations sent to me so they can be finished as well.

So if I had to give a number, I'd say the game is completed by 99,9%. :3
But yeah, I'm fairly sure everything else in the game is done now!

Trophies Updated

Took several days, but I'm finally done updating the trophy system...and "all" I had to do was manually go through every single search spot and chest over the 980+ maps. @_@
Well that is DONE so no point in complaining now!

For those that have already tried earlier episodes of the game, the new way trophies pop up tells you the name of the one you just unlocked along with showing if its bronze, silver or gold, much better than the old system that only told you'd unlock an achievement, but not which one. :3

Milestone Reached

The final map in the game is now completed and all illustrations has been placed, phew...
This makes it 256 unlockable artworks, not counting the adult scenes, and a total of 980 maps across the 60 different locations available in the game world!

Wish I could just flop over and rest now, but it is not meant to be...
I still need to polish some things and tie up a few lose ends, so the work continues!

Post-Game Content

Been working the past few days on adding the last legendary monsters to the game,
turned out there will be 27 of them...not sure how many the first game had. x3

And even though a game like this hardly need post-game content considering there is a ton of additional content throughout the story you never even have to visit, I'm still working on some things like the Cursed Galleon that will begin to roam the ocean once you've finished the story.
There is also the Void of Illusions, but I'll have to see how big that turns out since I'm actually nearing the limit for how many maps you can make in RPG Maker XP...which is 999, and I'm currently at 925+. xD
I'm also planning to add a neat little thing to the Arena of Champions, but we'll see if there is time for that!

After all, its January now...I only have to the end of the month!
