I will add a post to this thread when I make a new release.  This means you can subscribe to this thread, and you will then get emails about new releases.

Hello!  Things have slowed down a bit since the hectic pace of the Gothic Novel Jam, but I am delighted to bring you the first update to Gwen.  There is a new quest line in which a boy from Gwen's school has two problems for her to solve.  He has a monster in the basement, and he has a sister.  The monster and the sister are probably different individuals.

The fights have been improved.  When you are attacked, you now have the option of falling over, twisting your ankle, and all sorts of other things.  You don't have long to decide what you're going to do, so you might find yourself taking one of these not-so-good options.

Bugs have been fixed.  If you die during a fight, you now get to try again, even if you didn't save your game.

Gwen is still in very early access, and the transition to early access is some way off.  This is because Gwen's inner monster still has a lot of anger to work through before it will feel satisfied.  How many people will die along the way?

Hello again!  I'm very pleased to be bringing you the third preview release of Gwen.  Gwen now meets her friend and shows her that killing things is a lot of fun!  Her quest requires her to go on a magical journey, and a bit of detective work will now show her how.  She can't actually leave yet because that part of the story hasn't been written.

In fact about half of Gwen's story has now been written, but many of the technical issues with the game have been worked out, so the second half should be a bit quicker.  Playing Gwen all the way through now will probably take about two hours, and it will be four to five by the time the game is finished.

Music and sound effects have been added, and many bugs have been fixed.  Probably many new bugs have been introduced!

Gwen is still in very early access.  I will probably announce the transition to early access once there is a complete draft of the second half.

Gwen now has a free trial and once you complete that, you will be asked to pay £2.45 ($3.17, €2.83) by PayPal.  (You can't pay through Itch because they don't support chargeable browser games as yet.)
