Hello!

It's been a while since I updated people on SA directly from dA. But to make up for the delay, I bring great news!

Please welcome semehammer as the newest member in the Starswirl Academy development team. If you've delved into humanized ponies at all, the name shouldn't be unfamiliar. From now on, she'll be assisting Bloo-Ocean and me with stuff like the game's sprites.

Stay tuned!

Being a new watcher, this is first I have heard of this. So I goggled it read the home page. It seems really interesting, I wish you the best on the project.

Quick question is it going to be more of slice of life humour or a slice of life adventure. I didn't but in romance because I think it is assumed non-ecchi romance. Also is the path set in stone or could you change who your going for half way through due to loss of interest or one of the other character seems to be more interested.

But I realize they been vague in the forums for reason that you and them do not want to backed into a creative corner. So I understand if you don't say anything.

thanks for the support! As for your questions:

1. The game does, in fact, revolve around romance for the most part. There will undoubtedly be humour and adventure on the side, but keeping with visual novel tradition, romance will definitely be central. Regarding ecchi content, it will be included, although for those who would rather play without that, an all-ages version will be available as well.

2. You can branch off to one of the 6 paths when you start the game, but once you embark on one, you cannot change it. You would need to create a new save slot to do so.

Okay, neat another thing I'm looking forward to that doesn't have a set due date. Just wondering what seems to be taking the longest amount of time for the game the art, coding or the sound? I assume you group has finished the story because it's kind of hard to draw something that you don't know what is happening in the scene.

Expected most games don't usual let you change but it's an interesting concept when you can. But still intriguing sounding game.

The writing is actually far from finished. Of course, we need to know what the story is to draw appropriate scenes, but we're not quite at that stage yet. I can't give you a precise release date simply because we have none, although we would like to aim to release within the next year.

Really, hmm I would love to help with writing but I assume the crew is set in stone. So I might wander back over to the Starswirl academy forum and see if it's possible or not to help. Even if it's just creative contributions.
