Your Comments + Future Stretch Goal Plans
Hello folks! I want to begin with just a general update -- the campaign is now over 200% funded! I'm overwhelmed by the response to the demo, I'm thrilled that you liked it, and I'm pumped to move forward to making the full game!
Now, onto business.
Although I don't respond to everything, I'd like you all to know that I do indeed read all of your comments and take your thoughts and opinions into consideration. On that note, I've noticed that many people have requested the addition of a slender body type love interest, and I can tell you that two are on the way.
In addition, I've noticed that a couple of folks have commented that every love interest shown so far is ripped and cut, and I'd just like to address that issue pictorially:
As the captions say, these folks are Bradach, Emre, and Tariq -- Bradach and Tariq are two of the main love interests, and have from the beginning been modeled as chubby characters. Emre, although a secondary love interest, is another character who isn't ripped or cut.
Although I recognize that I could be doing more variation in the body types I've presented so far (and I will be doing more to address that issue), 3/8 of all love interests introduced so far are chubby, which is just 1 character shy of being half the love interests, and there are still four secondary love interests left to reveal.
It's totally fine to call out issues you perceive in the project, it's early in the development, and there's a whole entire game ahead! But it's come up a few times where people have taken issue with things pertaining to the project where the issue is either based in miscommunication or misinformation, and spreading that could turn people off to the game who would otherwise be interested.
Like I said above, I do read nearly everything, and I'm already acting on some of the feedback I've already received, because your comments are important to the development of the final game, and as such I do take them all into consideration.
Stretch goal plans
I honestly hadn't anticipated all of my original stretch goals being met so rapidly, and I'm considering what else I'd like to do with additional funding.
One idea I have is to produce a side story set in the Eldet universe that uses the original plot I was going to use for Eldet-- It would be a self contained story that would follow a different protagonist. I've always liked the plot I came up for it, but in the end it wasn't suitable for a full length game. Making it along side the main game would be one way to include it without bloating the story of Eldet with a sub-plot that would be unrelated to everything else.
But nothing is set in stone! I'm still considering the options :)
In the meantime, more secondary love interests will be introduced as the fundraising campaign continues.
Thanks for everything you've done thus far, it's really been a wonderful experience, and I'm excited going forward!!
