Chapter 1: Precious Doll

Hi everyone! \(^__^)/

Random update on the game's development and a few sneak pics on Specimen Girl's first chapter: Precious Doll.  Each chapter will be centered on one of the four main protagonists, can you guess on which one we will be focusing this time? ;)

What mysteries lies behind this strange card...?

I'm still debating with myself whether I should release the game episodically or wait for the game to be finished before releasing it... We'll see how it goes, or maybe you have an opinion on the subject? If so, do not  hesitate to share! :) 

I also wanted to use this space to thank you all for your amazing feedback on the demo! I was really touched to see so much love for the game and it encourages me to do even better for the next chapters! :) So from the bottom of my heart: thank you for your comments, feedback and support!!  ♥

And that concludes this random update on chapter 1 development! I hope you liked being able to see the backstage of the game's creation! 

Stay tuned for more!

I'm trying to download chapter 1 but it doesn't work can you fix it?

Works well for me, what kind of error do you get?

Hi, chapter 1 isn't out yet, there is only the demo covering the prologue that you can download and play. Is this what you have troubles downloading? :0

yes, thanks for the consideration. I will wait for the first chapter.

Ok, my pleasure! :) I hope you'll like it!

Personally, I really like the idea of this being an episodic game. I think regardless of their length, having the chapters come out separately would work fine as long as there's not like a year long gap between each one or anything.

Hi, sorry it took me so long to reply! ^^ Yes I think I'll see how long the chapters are at the end and how long I take to release a new one in order to see if episodic would do the trick. ^^ 


Looks really good so far! In my opinion, it would be cool to release it episodically. In the end it's up to you. Looking forward to updates regardless~!

Hi! Thanks for your comment, I'm also considering the episodic release, but I'm afraid the chapters will be too short (around 30 minutes like the demo) for them to be enjoyable without the rest of the content... Unless I manage to create nice cliff hangers every time...huuum...

 I'll see how it goes! :) 

You could release the game chapter by chapter as you first make it, and then bundle it all together once the final chapter is complete. That's one possibility.
