Development Update #22
Hey folks! Hope you're doing well :)
Another short update this month, but I wanted to begin with a note about a change in my personal circumstances-- I moved during March! Getting things ready for the move/the move itself/unpacking and etc did eat into my work time this month, but the more important implication is that unfortunately my living expenses are a lot higher than they used to be, so I'm needing to do more work on the side to pay my rent/bills/food/etc while I continue finishing up the game this year. I'm hoping it won't delay the project's completion too drastically, but it's something I thought I should mention up front.
Also, I'm planning to release the new version of the game demo on the anniversary of the first demo, that will include all the reworked (and in some cases, entirely redone) art, new dialog, new UI, new LOTS of things, hahaha, so be on the lookout for that!
Okay, so onto the update. This month I'll be introducing 3 new characters and also sharing 3 snippets of music I worked on in March.
Joon is a high-ranking officer of Alqna, the thieves syndicate operating in Karnata. Along with Sana (who I've introduced before), his main duty is Serving as a recruiter for the syndicate.
Next up is Lien
Lien is the only non-magical person living and working in the Ashram (the mage's college), as those with magical abilities dwindle more and more each generation, the arch mages of the college hope that through dedication and study, anyone might be capable of awakening some kind of magic within them.
Last we have Manu
Manu is the cousin of Swathi (previously introduced) who owns and operates the Rosewood Tavern near the port district of Karnata.
Can't wait for you all to meet these folks in-game!
Like usual I'll end the update with a few bits of music, the first one is largely completed but the other two are pretty early on in the writing process. Hope you all have a good month!
