Hello. This is Elliott Belser, lead writer of the Bliss Stage VN, signed in to lead programmer Casey's account until we work out how I can comment with my own Kickstarter account.
I'd like to start by apologizing for the radio silence. We have been hard at work at the VN - busy writing and editing scenes, producing character, mecha and monster art (with the permission of the artists', I'll start posting that next week), and allow me to assure you that reports of our death have been greatly exaggerated.
Of note on the voice acting front, we have cast our Joshua Preston: he will be voiced by Gerardo Paz, who is most famous in fandom circles for his comic work - voicing Teddie in the "Hiimdaisy Persona 4 Comic Dub," among other things.
Our Sara Smith remains Juliet "Dub Belldandy" Cesario, and please welcome our Anna Lin, Erica "Unwoman" Mulkey, who will also be contributing a great deal of her music to the game. In fact, her classic song "The Bridge" has become our de-facto theme song.
I will try to keep to a more regular posting schedule - at least once a month, trying for more like once a week. I understand how worrying it is when there's a long period of radio silence, so I'm going to ensure that there isn't one any longer.
Thank you for your patience. Hopefully we'll see some of you at Kraken Con, in Oakland - which is near Endgame, the birthplace of Bliss Stage, back when Ben Lehman was playtesting the tabletop game. Stop by Krakencon and we'll run tabletop demos and - hopefully - have something more polished to show you...
Stay tuned for more art and more updates.
With love as our weapon and trust as our armor,
-Elliott Belser, Lead Writer for Perpetual Motion
