The work on Chapter 4 is proceeding well ahead of schedule, and unless there's a huge issue that comes up, release should be on May 5th to Patreons, May 27th to the public. I have been thinking about the feedback I have gotten on the dark route and you will see a much greater difference between the two paths in this content. Also as I've been rewriting it, I've focused a lot of attention on giving it a much more active feel.
In version 1 Western Corsix (now Lesser Corsix) was a fairly passive city but I'm doing a lot more to improve the gameflow in it, with a much more active feel and design to the event structure. Should feel much different then it did in version 1. Captain Vanessa (now Centura Vanessa) has a much more active role then she did before. Her character was fairly undeveloped when I wrote the content the first time and her personality didn't start to come together until chapter 6 last time. Now that I know who she is, she's a far more interesting character in this section.
Jessica will still be a focal point in the content and both Rhea's and Alena's content is far better written this time around, focusing more heavily on their relationships with Sarah and Samantha respectively. Phoebe has a more active role as well as she was optional at this time during v1 but required in v2 which has let me write her into the content much better.
Coding for Chapter 4 is done as well as rough drafts for all events. Will be hundreds of pages of content, most of it completely rewritten and all of improved. The vast majority of images are also new for v2, but there were some that I thought were good enough to get ported over directly.
I'm also taking a new look at non-canon scenes, which are part of the $25+ Patreon rewards. The eight already in the game focused more on behind the scenes events. Things that could have happened in the normal run of the game, just weren't significant enough to be included in the main game. This time I'm taking more of a 'what-if' idea. Things that did not happen in the game, but might have. What if Donnie went to Jessica during the party? Or what if somebody else caught your eye during it?
As always, I appreciate all the support that you all give me for making this game. Be it through feedback and talking about what you did/did not like in the game and your pledges through Patreon. Remember that if you want to get access to the new chapter 4 content on the 5th, you must pledge at least $5 before the end of April for the pledge to process in time to get the early release. And if you choose to pledge $25 or more, you'll gain access to the 8 bonus scenes already in the game and the two new non-canon scenes being added.
Enough of me talking, here's some teasers!
