Hello everyone! We hope you’re all enjoying the game so far. We wanted to give you a progress report on the upcoming updates that we’re working on. Our team has been hard at work, making improvements and adding new features to enhance your experience.
To start off, we’re converting our codebase to Python 3 and Renpy 8, which will help address performance issues on PC and android devices. We’re also fixing crashes on mobile devices so that you can enjoy the game without any interruptions. This is an important change that should make the code more maintainable and reduce its complexity.
Additionally, we’re adding translation support to the game, which means that we will be providing the tools and support for players to translate the game into their own language. However, the actual translations will be crowd-sourced, so players will be able to help us make the game accessible to more players around the world. We’re hoping that this will bring the community closer together and make the game even more enjoyable for everyone.
The layering for the character’s Doll system is also getting an overhaul. We’re expanding support for mods and clothing, and we’ve added some new features like static zorders per layer, dynamic clothing based on other clothing or facial states, support for more common file formats like PNG, AVIF, and TIFF, alongside WEBP. We’ve also expanded modding support so you can add new characters, events, or modify existing ones with less issues. There are also layer modifiers for character files, which will allow for even more customization options.
The Chibis are also getting an overhaul with a brand new codebase and artwork for all characters. We’re sure you’ll love the new look!
We’ll be disclosing more changes and additions as they get closer to being ready, so stay tuned for more updates. For those who missed our previous progress report, the next two updates will be focusing on Cho, and Luna.
To sweeten up the wait time a little, we’ll be posting a fun teaser on our Patreon page that we’re sure will bring a smile to all you quidditch fans. Keep an eye out for smaller teasers being posted on our discord server, such as the one about Susan wearing a sexy priestess outfit.
It was also brought to our attention that there are issues with our website requiring a log-in, so we’re looking for alternative hosting services. We’ll keep you updated as we find a better solution.
For those who are curious (or impatient 🤭) about the progress of the update, we wanted to mention that we use Git for version control. This means that our code and progress is always available for anyone to see. If you’re interested in checking out what we’re working on or following along with our progress, you can find our Git repository on our website. This is a great way to stay up-to-date on the latest changes and to see what we’re working on next. If you do wish to check our repository, please be mindful of spoilers, and that the content is not representative of the final product and may change at any time of the development cycle. If you find any bugs or issues with the new unpublished content, please send us a DM.
We’re always looking for ways to improve the game, and we’re excited to bring these updates to you soon. Thank you for your continued support!
