Update #38: This is NOT a drill! The Letter's Release Date!!
[Monthly Update #18: June 2017]
He'ya gang, this is it! It took us two years to get to this point, and now we're proud to announce The Letter's release date!!
Save the date: 07.24.2017
Almost everything on our side is set. All chapters are scripted, and almost all of the assets are finished (except for the achievement icons of Chapters 6-7, which'll be completed next week).
For this month, our team will be focusing on QA and finishing the game's voice acting. We will release Chapter 6 and Chapter 7's early access approximately 1 week before the 24th. In line with this, we'd also like to thank all our beta testers for their patience and dedication in testing our (buggy) builds, and for helping us make the game better! :) We're extremely grateful for everyone's feedback!
*Special mention to Teófilo, our benevolent overlord, Shawn Heatherly and Nayru for going the extra mile in testing the game! Thank you for having our back, guys! ❤
After the PC release, we will work towards mobile release and fulfillment of rewards. Please give us a few more months to sort them out. Rest assured that we'll keep you guys updated with our progress even after the game's release. :D

We need at least 100 sign-ups, but the more the merrier! The campaign will end on July 24. Let's rock the world on The Letter's release!! \o/

Toycon & GameCon PH
Last June 30-July 2, The Letter was at Toycon PH! We had a wonderful time there and we'd like to thank everyone who dropped by our booth! ❤
Special shout-out to the little kid who enjoyed the game very much! He kept on coming back and managed to reach Zach's chapter!! XD
We will also be at GameCon PH this coming July 8-9! See you there!! :D
Chill with us at YYM's Discord
Channel link: https://t.co/8PzzECaFG3
In case you don't know, we've resurrected our Discord! :) Please drop by and say hi! All YYM members are there, so there's a chance that things will get a wee bit weird, but we're nice people overall! XD
If that's not enough to convince you, we also have special The Letter emotes that you can spam all day!! (Zachary and Marianne's are underway)
Patreon + Project Yuri
And last but certainly not the least, we've also made a Patreon account! If you liked what we did with The Letter and would like us to continue making more quality visual novels, please consider supporting us there! :)
With The Letter nearing its release, a few of us in the team has actually started another project, which we call 'Project Yuri' for now. It's a GxG romantic-comedy, and we've been posting early concept arts of the game in our Patreon page.
That's it for our June update! We'll be back approximately 2 weeks from now for more major announcements, and expect another update on the 24th!!
This is it gang!! We're really, really, really almost there!! Thank you for being with us in this journey! :)
