Somnova Studios: September 2021 Update

Hello again, it's another Missing Stars update!

This month's update will once again be rather short, but we do have a great update for this month: all of Act One's scenes have been converted over to our new code base that Adam W, our lead writer, talks about here

At the same time, we are continuing to update and add any missing CGs, sprites, as well as revamp our UI so that Missing Stars looks even prettier for the Steam release. Here's a recent work in progress, featuring Erik and Annaliese!

The full image is way too cute for this blog post, so you'll have to wait.

We also decided to make a "sprite" of Erik proper, as we realized that we actually didn't have a reference that wasn't in a CG or early concept art. This piece probably won't show up in-game, but in the case that you all need a reference for fanart, storytelling, or something else entirely, here's an official image of our protagonist!

Special thanks to Likhos for making this!

We're very happy with our progress so far, and we're also confident that you won't have to wait too much longer to see all of these new changes. Trust us, we're very eager to get Act One onto Steam.

In other news, we're getting the ball rolling on recording the next Somnova Podcast episode. Originally, we were thinking of talking about the various forms of media that has inspired our team. However, someone on our team has suggested talking about good and bad mental health portrayals in mainstream media. Let us know which topic you want us to discuss first, as well as any other topics for future episodes!

As always, thank you for your patience and understanding. Stay tuned for more updates regarding our upcoming Steam release!
