Haha no, they never travel so far. I have in mind to show her in another game though :)
Can she appear in Planet Stronghold 2? With the MC being like "what's this old woman doing here on the battlefield?" And then she is like "whoops, wrong dimension" since she is in the demon's realm now.

Good news, heard back from the writer who said should be able to send me the last missing texts next week or so. Perhaps the full beta (with all content but still a beta) by mid-March will be possible after all :)

Woohoo, so I may be able to play the game sometime before May potentially. I really don't like doing beta tests, because I usually am fatigued from the game by the time it comes out and end up not buying. And that just makes me feel bad, cuz then I am not truly supporting the developer.

Yes May seems a reasonable estimate. Today got some more texts edited/proofread and the total wordcount is:

:o :o :o and there are still the endings and an important scene with the council still missing. For sure will be over 300k at this point, maybe something around 305-310k!

lol I can't believe I'm coding the LAST scene of the game! :shock: more political intrigues and choices.
After this I will still need probably 2-3 weeks to retest the whole act3, since a lot of things can happen (all the romances, epilogues, etc). I'm sure I'll forget about something since there are a lot of possible combinations but that's what testers are for :mrgreen:

Woo!!! IT'S FINISHED!!!!!!! The final wordcount is:
305,331 words
a SMALL GAME (TM)

haha anyway, I now need to script and playtest all the new things I added so the mid-March estimate is still valid :mrgreen: I think in next days to take a break will code all the VBH sprites (need to look at some cute girls after all this RPG stuff!) and then next week resume working on this and finish the new beta update with all the content! :)

Itchio? I'm a little bit iffy using new (scary/unexplored/untested) sites, but I'll do it!

Can't wait to try (-will- of course give feedback, mention if I see something strange /glitches/funny writing)
