There hasn’t been enough Meg around here lately. Here’s some Meg.
Two days left in December: will he make it? (…yes?) Will he release an unplayably broken build just to meet the (self-imposed) deadline? (no.) Will he stop referring to himself in the third person? (he might!)
I guess you can’t please everyone.
Good job, everyone!
Note: This was originally posted to Patreon around this time last night. I normally try to cross-post public stuff around the same time, just forgot.
I said I’d have a release out by the end of the month and I stand by that.
So how many days are there is December? 31? Whew, that’s a load off. So, yeah, expect some version of a release in the next 7 days.
Though the Patreon feed may not show it, I’ve been working as much as I possibly can for weeks now. There was simply an enormous amount to write—end points I wanted to reach that ended up taking more steps than I had anticipated. That means much more writing, rendering (often working with new environments and new characters) and even coding was necessary than I had anticipated. And, of course, despite that I’m trying very hard to maintain the same standard of quality—to raise that standard, hopefully.
In other news, in the spirit of Christmas all new non-explicit preview renders will be made available to the public up until release. I had hoped to have one ready for this post but, unfortunately, it looks like the render isn’t going to finish in time. Not that I’m done for the night, just wanted to get this up before it gets too far past midnight in NA.
Thanks everyone, I hope your holidays are going well. Catch me on Discord or leave a message.
If you only follow my Patreon updates you’d be forgiven in thinking that I died in a terrible accident involving PBR and/or black tar heroin. That is not the case.
If you follow me elsewhere a lot of this will sound familiar as I’ve stated it elsewhere. People have asked if the next version is coming out this month: the next version is absolutely coming out this month. Not only that, here’s an exclusive: instead of 1.7 I’m going to call it 2.0. Just so you know it’s at least at least 17% better (I think my math is right there).
It’s been a long while since the last release and a lot has happened in the mean time. I could sit here and blame it on the Patreon suspension, the fallout from that including necessary rewrites (both in code and dialogue), and the other thing of which I will not name. All of those things have certainly played a role, but I’ve also just been slow.
Slow, initially, because the collective weight of those things was very depressing and anxiety-inducing, and made writing (which is the hardest part for me) very difficult. Then slow as each day passed without an update as I felt the pressure of more and more guilt for letting down the people who have supported me.
Don’t get me wrong—I have been working. But not up to the standard to which I hold myself and not up to the standard to which I believe I have established over the first six updates. As I’ve said elsewhere: no one feels worse about the delay than me—not because of the money, but because I have disappointed the people who supported me.
I’m doing everything I can to make it up to you all—those of you who are still Patrons as well as those of you who very understandably moved on. And also any other random perv that just wants to bone Meghan but doesn’t have any cash to spare.
Also, I realize I’ve neglected Patreon itself and there is a simple reason for that: after the suspension I got gun-shy. It’s simply not clear to me what I’m allowed to post and what I’m not, and I don’t want to just keep posting random pictures of girls (by “girls” I mean fully mature, adult women, of course) sitting on couches wearing sweaters. Or, even worse: walls of text like this.
That said, I suppose I have to get over it at some point. Therefore, I will once again be posting more traditional previews for patrons, all of which will, to the best of my knowledge, fall well within the Patreon community guidelines.
I posted one earlier for $10 patrons which is a still from an upcoming animation. As I type this sentence frame 145/150 of that animation is being rendered so I should be able to get an actual animation preview up tonight as well. I will also get back to pinup voting (and other voting as well, when appropriate), though my first priority right now is getting a releasable version of 2.0.
I think that covers most of what I wanted to say. If not I can always post another wall of text tomorrow (so look forward to that). Again, thank you to everyone who has supported me over the months. If you want to contact me leave a message or find me in Discord, where I reside most of the day.
Cheers, and here’s looking forward to 2.0.
