About one year ago, we released Milk’s first episode in a quite chaotic background, promising to take care of the rest quickly. My naivety had stricken again, proving I’m way too optimistic when calculating deadlines =’). Similar to Episode 1 production, Episode 2 production met unexpected events, leading to the latency we know : post-Nanoreno break, recruitment needs, troubling holidays period, changes in everyone’s schedules, recruitment needs again…
In spite of that, our tenacity has paid since we’re seeing the end of the tunnel ! Episode 2 is finished and include the next part of the story as well as some new features :
- minor story alterations
- NENEA’s sprite redesign
- a better-looking GUI
- a chapter select menu to make browsing easier
- some animated backgrounds
The idea had always been to keep getting better and better with each release so we took advantage of that extra time to correct some flaws that were adressed. You can keep report them to us, so that we can take them into account for next episode !
Anyway, we hope you’ll enjoy Khzi’s adventures : they’ll be at the center of the story for a while. The good news is : with the slow progress of Episode 2, Episode 3 is actually half done, so we’re hoping the release date will be soon. I’m planning it for this summer since we had some interesting constraints which I will explain in no time ~
By the way, besides a new part of the story, we’re already planning Episode 3 to include :
- a way to reduce contrasts between old and new sprites
- possibly a new textbox
- a better translation, which sadly we didn’t have the time to do
For the moment, enjoy the read. To download the game, as usual, go to our download page. After getting the game, you’ll have to click on Start to select a chapter and that’s all =).
You can still follow our updates regularly on Facebook, Twitter and now Tumblr ! Any feedback will be much appreciated.
