Hey I am following your work closely on social media and I wonder that if the finished visual novel will be not only for patrons in the future or not. I am not trying to guilt trip. I'm Turkish and our money is kinda f*cked tight now(1 dollar equals about 5-6 Turkish lira). By the way keep up the good work I love your characters so much!
Not to worry-- the game will most definitely be out for free as more updates are made. (Er, until the very end, when it's all finished up it will be only available by being bought-- but that won't be for a WHILE, I promise) The way it works right now is that Patrons get updates EARLY. So basically; there's the free version of the game which will be hosted here and then the "Patreon version" which is just an update or two ahead of the public release.
This is a pretty common way that games (especially porn games) are released right now because it allows for lots of people to play it but also helps keep me getting paid to make it-- so all you need to do is be a little bit patient and the first update will be out within the next few months!
Right now I'm busy working on the Tomai DLC, which is long overdue, and then I'll be working on releasing the 2nd update of this for Patrons, which will push the first update out here for everyone, for free! The second update already has a ton of the dialogue written so I can't imagine it'll take me too long once I'm working on it more full-time.
I do my best to make sure the majority of my work is available for everyone; but at the end of the day it is my job so there's just some stuff I have to do to get by. I appreciate you understanding and how kindly you brought up your question-- it's not something everyone does so I just really appreciate it!
I'm really glad to hear you like my stuff and I hope I can continue to entertain <3
So I will be able to play the finished result for free! I am more hyped now! Don't worry patience is fine, I am so happy to hear this that I can wait until I die. I mean at first I saw your comics and was like: "They are free? Wow I never seen this before."
After that I downloaded "Another Time" for free and I was SO convinced that you liked your audience.
Take care! Good luck!
(My favorite is Sal by the way. He is such a cinnamon roll and reminds me of one of my characters as design.)
Yes, you'll be able to play the finished result for free! Patrons are just getting stuff early.
Aw! I'm glad to hear you found my comics and like 'em-- and that you downloaded Another Time! Always glad to see people enjoying that since it's slightly older now/// hehe
Sal seems to be a fan favorite and I can't blame anyone cuz he's super fun, imo! X) BTW, there's a Solanaceae Prologue comic running right now! It won't be up on Itchio until the first chapter finishes, but you can read it online for free at a few places! (On smackjeeves, tapas, or webtoons!) <333 sorry for the shill I just like to make sure people know all the projects I got going on hehe
Oh I know the prolouge! You can see my username on last episodes of both Tapastic and Webtoon! I am excited on learning about how the two met. I think it's the most important part to the story and the biggest missing puzzle piece.
Oh! Well thank you so much, I hadn't even noticed, oops!
How they met is def something people have been asking for a while and I'm glad I can finally give everyone an answer! The prologue has been really fun to work on so far <3
