Rewrites & Delays
This is a quick update to provide a couple of things to you all.
First development of the game is continuing, I know things have been a little quiet lately but this is due to several things, 1. the game My Girlfriend has been having some issues with steam (notes below) and 2. I have been very ill for the past month, and still am with various ailments but most notably Migraines. In general I am getting better but I am still dealing with daily headaches.
Anyway that is why things have been a little quiet of late, but work and development does continue... Now onto the talk of development and potential rewrites.
So basically, we mentioned above, issues we are having releasing the game My Girlfriend, essentially the game is stuck in steams review queue and we are receiving no feedback as to why this is. But after some research we believe the reason is that My girlfriend is set in a school/college setting. And Steam are worried about how the game could be perceived as being promoting under age relationships Etc, which is more of an issue for them now that they 'officially' accept adult content games.
Anyway again we have no confirmation of this but the facts appear to align, we therefore are worried about My Senpai having the same problem and so have decided rather than risk it we will rewrite the game so that it is no longer set during the final year of college. Instead it will focus around the plan that Mira is staying with Senpai whilst starting an apprenticeship at a local company, the same company her parents and Senpai's parents work at or worked at previously. A but flimsy perhaps, but fortunately My Senpai is more about the activities outside of college than during it and so the re-writes are not too bad.
I have already started these re-writes in fact and have re-written the first 3rd of the game already, I believe I will finish the rewrites by the end of Next week or the week after, also other than a few additional character outfits, these changes should not really affect much within the game, all it means is that further work is delayed a little more whilst the re-writes are completed. The only reason this is taking a bit longer than I hoped is because of my headaches limiting the amount of time I can spend on the computer.
But once the rewrites are finished and the character sprites are finalised we should be able to move forward with the last of the current development before Beta begins properly.
More details will be coming nearer the end of March once things are more settled and in place.
