First off, a new writer. raithfyre is here to take over the writing for Isolda. I personally thought we didn't need another writer, but Hamadyne ran away screaming when we asked him if he would take over writing for both Jeanne and Isolda. Apparently, this writing thing is harder than it looks; good thing raithfyre makes it look so easy.
We also recruited three new artists: U-1224, raichuuuu, and Reaven. Normally, I'd tell you what character they are each working on, but we recently switched to the new and improved Somnova Studios Art Workflow 2.0™, so each artist is no longer working on a single character in their entirety. It makes for less exciting blog posts, but it does help everything look more consistent, so I'd say that's a long term win right there.
We're working hard as always, and we can't wait to share with you what we have in store. I'm personally excited to be working on this project every day, even a year later. We know it's frustrating for us to be in silence for so long with no substantial news, but we don't want to disappoint you with concepts or ideas that might not make it into the final cut. With our extremely flat structure of development, everyone makes contributions that could end up changing the final product drastically, so it's difficult for us to say with any certainty what will still be around by the time you get your hands on Missing Stars.
Stick around though; I don't think you will be disappointed.
