Here Is The News

Quick summary of progress:

-Our medical advisor recruitment went well and we've been joined by two talented individuals who will be giving feedback on the medical aspects of Missing Stars as well as helping out with the general editing. Armymond and TotallyGeekage are both very welcome additions to the Somnova team, especially now that art production is starting to pick up and demo release actually seems achievable. We'll be doing some rewriting of a few scenes to better define Erik as a character, but it's not expected to delay overall progress at all, since editing and rewriting should still be finished before art is.

-With regards to art, we've got a couple new members in that department as well. Honitsu, already a popular Katawa Shoujo fan-artist, has joined the team and will be lending his talents towards the creation of Annaliese's art. Below, you can see the piece he made as an application to the team before he actually joined. Clearly, he has good taste in heroines.

We have an additional member who has promised to join up in mid-August, following the busy convention season, though we're refraining from naming her right now just in case things don't work out.

-Music production, which has always been solid, might be kicking into high-gear again soon, as one of our busier musicians will be less busy here soon, and thus able to contribute more often again. Which is a good thing, since the world needs more Astartunes.

-Finally, though it's been out in the internet for a while in various other places, we're proud to "formally" show off the updated lineart for one of Natasha's sprites. It's still not final, and has yet to undergo some anatomical corrections, but we feel that it's a marked improvement from the version of the sprite that we've shown before.

That's about all that we have to share at the moment. Please discuss on the forums at your leisure, and look forward to the next update in a couple weeks or so.
