Hello everyone, hope you’re all doing well! We’re coming at you with your monthly dose of Missing Stars Act 1 progress and oh boy, do we have a lot of news for you wonderful fans! So let’s talk about that.
Firstly, about Act 1 progress: We’re very happy to say that we are approaching the ¾ mark in terms of writing. Once that is done, all we need to do is edit said scenes and program them into the game. Of course, that doesn’t mean it’s all said and done. We’ll have to play the game to perform what Hamadyne calls a "master edit". This is done to make sure that we catch any mistakes missed during the initial edit, check for any continuity errors, and that no routes have been snuck in (Sorry Ela, Sofiya and Irene fans.)
While we work on the game, we also have plans to update our web presence. The website is a touch out of date, so we'll be doing a lot of tidying up on that. We also have plans to update the main Missing Stars website with updated bios of our characters, more polished UI, etc. in anticipation for the Act 1 release. We’ll be utilizing the websites a lot more alongside our social media pages on Facebook and Twitter!
During the month of September, we also have some dev interviews coming out on our blog for you to look forward to! We’ll be interviewing Hamadyne, one of the studio directors, and Kuroe, who is writing Natalya’s route in Missing Stars. We hope you’re as excited as we are for that!
Finally, keep your eyes peeled for a Somnova Studios and Watercress podcast coming up within the next few weeks! We’ll have some live episodes just talking about subjects relating to English Visual Novel (EVN) development to give you folks an inside look of what happens during development. We may also talk about Missing Stars as we approach the release, and maybe even announce something during an episode? I guess you’ll have to tune in to find out ;).
And that’s all we have for you this month! Thank you all so much for your continued support!
