This news article may have been updated on the forum.
Hello ladies and gents! It's been a long time since the last update! This one will be pretty big for all of our backers, it will be the final Gravestone and Casting Call for the game. If you miss this one, there is no guarantee that your NPC or gravestone will be in the initial release! Keep in mind that it wouldn't be difficult to patch them in after the game is released however.
Mac and Linux and ?
Porting the game to other platforms, including Mac and Linux will be done after the game is finished for Windows. It'll be done by an official party in partnership with Degica, the U.S. branch of the makers of RPG Maker. This means that there is a possibility of it not being ready for the other platforms upon release. We could stagger the release a bit to do them all at the same time, it'll be something to think about in the coming months.
As for DLC, I'm specifically talking about the extra chapters, Petula visiting the modern world and Petula starring in a horror game. These two will NOT be ready for the initial release. I'll be working on them after the main game has shipped. Although they will be marked as DLC, anybody who has already backed the Kickstarter for the game, and anybody who has already pre-ordered the game will be getting them for FREE. Anybody who buys the game after release can purchase them separately.
For those of you with sidequests, please revisit the forum and go over your sidequest one more time to finalize it. I won't be able to reply to every single one, but once I start working on it I will be contacting you to make any necessary changes or limitations to your sidequest. Keep in mind that these side quests will take me quite a while to do so if you can limit the scope then it'll help me greatly. There is a significant chance that some sidequests will not be finished before the game is released, but they will be patched into the game in that event.

Red Barrels Do Explode Backers
It's been too long since I had a call for gravestone backers! This time we'll be going all out and giving you a choice on multiple areas. Make sure to submit your gravestone quote on the [Victims of the Red Barrel] thread!
Port Nasbeth graveyard
This graveyard can be found within the port city of Nasbeth. Being one of the biggest cities in the dwarven nation of Gillia, many notable dwarves are burried here. Although you can access it when you first visit, it's best to revisit a second time little later on. About 10 spots will be open.
Stregone Accademia graveyard (Magic Academy)
The Stregone Accademia graveyard is split in two, one in the main courtyard of the academy, and another underground, further from prying eyes. Both students and faculty of the academy rest in these graveyards. It's said that if you close your eyes, you'll hear the dead whisper in your ear. About 10 spots will be open between the two graveyards.
Elven Forest City graveyard
The Elven Forest graveyard is populated mainly with deceased elves. Although hidden from the public, those who stumble upon it say it's the most beautiful resting place they've ever seen. About 10 spots will be open.
Random Placement Graves
These graves will be strewn about the world of Cielo'viv. There is no particular graveyard to be found for you. You'll be a random gravestone, or perhaps an unsigned marker among rocks near a river, at the foot of a tree or behind the shadow of a mountain. There are unlimited spots for this.
Casting Call #5
The final casting call is here! If you don't have a spot yet, now is your final chance to get one. The doors have been flung wide open and everything is on a first-come basis! Remember that all characters in the Casting Call have the potential of appearing again later on in the game. If you have a sidequest in the game, you should not participate in the casting call.
