Estimate release dates of next games

Post by jack1974 » Sun Dec 01, 2013 4:00 pm

Since I get this question asked a lot I thought to make a thread that I'll try to keep updated about the current situation of my various games in progress... so you can check this instead of asking me :mrgreen:

Last updated: 1 MAY 2017

RPGs

Cursed Lands
Writing: The "final bosses/fights" scenes of the main plot are left. Romance paths almost done (some missing scenes there and there).
Coding: Reusing Loren's framework
Artwork: party characters done. romance CG lineart done. More characters/enemies/items to be added while actually coding the game. GUI done.
Music: all tracks done!

Planet Stronghold 2
Writing: did a plot outline years ago. Some scenes were written, but really early stages. Almost all work to be done.
Coding: Probably need to wait for new RPG framework with support for ammo/damage types/advanced turn/timer etc. Nothing done.
Artwork: All characters and romance CGs are done. All enemies though maybe I could add a few more. GUI done.
Music: Only missing 2 more relaxed tracks to play during the game, apart that is done.

Loren 2 (first part)
Writing: Main story draft done. Some camp talks scenes finished.
Coding: Nope. Aiming to use the new framework if possible.
Artwork: All characters and romances including pin up finished. Everything else needs to be seen while scripting.
Music: Nothing done yet.

Roger Steel
Writing: Almost all done, but needs to be ported in to Ren'Py format :lol:
Coding: Once again nothing done. Depends on which framework I'll use
Artwork: Main cast done, some secondary NPCs. Romances CG lineart all done, some already colored (they're AWESOME).
Music: Nothing done yet.

RPG / Strategy / Life sims hybrids (they could have RPG elements, albeit not detailed as the RPGs, or be CCG)

Undead Lily
Writing: About half done but needs to be reworked with the new gameplay.
Coding: Depends what I'll use, not sure yet. Asked Anima to fix the card framework and old Loren RPG framework.
Artwork: Everything done
Music: All done.

VN / Dating sims
Love Bites
Writing: About halfway done
Coding: Started coding the scheduler and other parts of the game
Artwork: All done, commissioned some extra props/items/scenes
Music: All done though might commission a few more.

Nicole Yuri version
Writing: All done but being constantly reworked/edited
Coding: See above
Artwork: Missing the last 4-5 CGs (the number of CGs is higher than the otome)
Music: Done (reusing otome music)

Summer In Trigue
Writing: About 1/3 done
Coding: See above
Artwork: Not sure since writing is not done.
Music: Should be done but could add some more stuff.

Thanks a lot for the estimates. Especially as I had the impression you did not want to give estimates for fear of them not being 100% accurate.

Some of them (Loren2) may come out a bit sooner than expected, but well ... if ... something hapens along the way, I won't hold you to the date.

And what is C14? (and don't you have enough other games in the pipeline? :mrgreen: )

Well the estimates are to be taken like: if EVERYTHING goes well/according to plan :mrgreen:
(and when it went according to plan? :lol:)
Sometimes to finish that last 10% of art/writing/coding/etc takes 2 months, but at least you have a vague idea of which games won't come out soon (like QOT or Roger Steel).
C14 has been mentioned somewhere in the forums but is still early and don't want to talk about it yet, but is an otome game. I'll talk more about it when is closer to being finished :)

Heh, when I heard C14, all I could think of is Carbon 14 Dating...a paleontologist dating sim?

An archeologist would use C14 dating as well...

Yes I really want to release some new RPGs and strategy/sims beside the dating sims. For various reasons this year was unable to release one (even of SOTW is at good point) so I want to recoup lost time :)

Lol, the first thing that came to my mind was like,... C2 from the Code Geass anime. More than likely completely unrelated, but still. XD

Anyways, excited for Nicole Yuri and Roomates. Had my eye on the latter one for a while now. ;)

Just curious, will you be keeping this page updated if there are any changes in your expected progress for each game? I know I could just look in the related threads but it is nice to have it all in one place like this :)
All hail Rei's booty.
