It's still very sweet to hear!
And yes, the VN will come out in smaller updates until it's one large VN, so it's ongoing kind of like a webcomic is. Right now just the first update is out publicly (and the second is up forPatreon supporters, for $1) and I'm hoping to have up to update 3, 4? Done within this year I hope! (First I gotta finish another big game of mine.)
It's very exciting for me to be working on SO MUCH SOLA and it's so nice when other people are excited too!!
I hope you have a good night and don't worry-- BATTAM WILL BE AROUND FOR A LONG WHILE. He's my good, slightly evil looking boy and he will have many many grand adventures for you to enjoy <3
