Just a small update on game progress!

Progress is going smoothly, although it is quite slow. Post processing the voices is looooong and tedious, working with them one-by-one, and having so many WAV files to sort through and process. And I do have some redos that I’m waiting on and that’s going to slow down progress a bit. Tedious, yes, but it’s worth it 🙂

Lines Processed:

  • Anna: 100%
  • Mikaela: 99% – just need that single redo from VA!
  • Tristina: ~50-60% – currently working on her lines
  • Aurelia: 0% – not processed yet, waiting for redos / rest of lines
  • Julia: 0% – not processed yet, waiting for redos / rest of lines
  • Ryne: 0% – not processed yet, although I received all the lines (his lines are going to be very very tedious to sort out)

After I get all the lines processed:

  • Program them all into the game
  • Commission a promo video, maybe. I do have lines recorded already for this though
  • Debug
  • Am I missing something…?

And afterwards, I’m going to take most of the critiques I received from the demo project and apply it. I’ve made a list of what I’m going to change / add / remove. Thanks to those who played the demo and gave me critique, they are immensely useful.

A Cafe Memoria expansion pack? It’s possible!

Progress Estimates

  • Script – 100%
  • Character art – 100%
  • Music – 95% (need to tweak stuff)
  • Programming – ~75% (testing, and need to add in the voices)
  • Voices – ~66% (waiting on the last bits of recordings, as well as post-processing)

I’m going to have to push the release date further back, to around early 2015 (tentative). I might have said Fall 2014, but as I said post-processing these voice files is long and tedious (and need to do other things as well)!

Demo is still playable if you haven’t tried it already. Thanks and let me know what you think!
