Hello everyone, hope you’re all doing well. We’re coming at you with our regularly-scheduled update for Missing Stars so that we can keep you informed of our progress for Act 1.
At this point, we have 44 scenes programmed into the game. This includes writing, sprite direction, and scene direction. As of this writing, our current word count at this point is at about 123,000 words.To put that into perspective, that is approximately the length of about 2 full routes from Katawa Shoujo. Compared to a real-world novel, J.R.R Tolkien's The Return of the King has 134,462 words, making Missing Stars quite the read once it's all finished. We hope this explains why we’re taking so long to get Act 1 out. Our largest focus has always been on the writing quality and ensuring the programming of these scenes looks consistent.
We apologize for delays for July's Mental Health Blog post . It will be out soon next week however!
That's all we have for you this month! Thank you all so much for your continued patience and enthusiasm. We can’t wait for Act 1 to be released so you can enjoy all of our hard work!
