Annaliese sprites inside; ready your defibrillators

Yo. My name’s Ultra_HR. I write Annaliese. I’ve got a few things to say, but first, check this out:

I’ll just give you a few seconds to let that sink in. Please feel free to take yourself to your nearest hospital if you feel you may be having the symptoms of a myocardial infarction (and note that Somnova Studios cannot be held liable for this).

This is Annaliese doing what Annaliese loves best; listening to music. Savour this smile. Protect it.

Annaliese hasn’t changed quite so much as the last Missing Starlet we featured, Jeanne. In fact, the design we’ve settled on here is pretty much the OG Annaliese, sidetail and all. Why change perfection?

Annaliese originally had full-blown over-ear headphones. This made for a nice design that many of you will be familiar with and for a fair while she wasn’t seen without them. Choosing to replace these with earbuds was a relatively big decision for a girl whose life revolves mostly around music, but in the end, I think it has more positives than negatives – and don’t worry, she’s still the audiophile you all know and love.

You’ll also be pleased to hear that the hoodie is back. Some of you might not even be aware that it had ever left, but for a while Annaliese looked like this:

I think that expression says it all. An ordinary sweater? On my Annaliese? Preposterous.

Annaliese’s new sprites were drawn by Morthiasik and coloured by Likhos. They’ve done an incredible job. I can’t wait for you all to meet her. For now, though, patience will have to be a virtue. I hope we’ll be able to give you more updates soon. Development for Missing Stars in the technical sense is also picking up - since our last post, we've welcomed PookyFan and LadyApollo onto the team to help with putting the UI together and with other development work.

In the meantime, please join us on Discord if you haven’t already. We have a “demo when” custom emoji for a reason.

Thanks for reading!
