  1. Hello, friends! I hope you had a nice holiday break and an enjoyable New Year's celebration! I caught a cold after the festive break so things have been going a bit slow on my end of things. Now that the new year is upon us, it's time to pick up the pace, though! That's how the numbers are looking at the moment. Like I've already mentioned, the demo is essentially an incomplete Chapter 1, so there's still a bit more to it than what you've seen so far. Currently, one puzzle is missing, and I'll get to implementing it in once the last pieces I need for it are complete. Modeling and backgrounds go strongly in pair, but I've decided to separate them on the chart since both require a fair amount of work. I'm really fond of how the script is turning out so far, and I hope you'll enjoy all the shenanigans happening around Chris and Beryl as much as I do. (¬‿¬ ) Odd's been doing a great job with composing music and I can't wait for you guys to finally play the game complete with its original soundtrack. Which also brings us to... Incoming Updated Demo It's going to have two major improvements - one of them being the OST. The second improvement involves custom cursor shapes for hover areas! It's something a lot of players requested, so I decided to take the feedback to heart. It makes the game feel more polished, so I hope you'll like it! No more blind click-mashing!╰(▔∀▔)╯ The updated demo should go up sometime this month alongside the Steam page for Blankspace. I will let you know as soon as it happens! Until then! - Nayru
  2. We made it, everyone! The Blankspace Kickstarter campaign is now officially over. The finish line got crossed with a whole 319 backers with 251% funded, which is amazing!💚 To everyone who decided to believe in this project, thank you so much for your support! We didn’t manage to hit the partial voice acting stretch goal, but I’m super happy with the outcome as is - the main goal behind this campaign managed to get reached, after all! Blankspace is going to have an original soundtrack! And an extended one at that! It’s what I truly wished for for this project, and it’s definitely something to be excited about! I’m sure you will love Odd’s work as much as I do! Again, thank you so much for this wonderful opportunity! Now that the campaign is over, I can finally concentrate on development again. I will work hard to make Blankspace an enjoyable/interesting experience, to the best of my abilities. My current goal is to finish the game all the way up to the end of Chapter 2 so that I can share the build with all early access backers. I will post monthly updates regarding Blankspace’s development over on Kickstarter, and possibly more frequent ones over on my Twitter or the NoBreadStudio Discord, so be sure to join me there if you’re interested in more frequent reports. See you around! (๑˃ᴗ˂)ﻭ
  3. Hello, friends! The final week of the campaign is upon us! Time sure flies, doesn't it? _(:3 」∠)_ The reception for Blankspace has been very positive so far!

  8. Hello, everyone! We'd like to share with you a couple of character sketches that came into existence during the early development of the game. Our very first character designs for WW Noah's initial design has been through a lot... He had like 10 hair variations before we settled for what he has now Yes, there is a version of this without the bars There's something very 70s about Roscoe's and Nick's initial design... All of these and a lot more will be included in our Whiteheart Woods artbook. You can read the full update on our Kickstarter page!
  9. Hi guys! Long time, no see! We've just released the demo for our second project, Whiteheart Woods! Here's the link to its thread on Fuwanovel: It's also now LIVE on Kickstarter!
  10. Hi, guys! Nayru here, one of the two developers from NoBreadStudio. I wanted to introduce you to the second project we've been working on. Just like SoulSet, this one's also of the mystery genre, only with supernatural elements instead of fantasy this time. Check it out and give the demo a try! Any kind of feedback is always welcome! >>> Now Live on Kickstarter! Please support us! <<< >>> Play the demo on Itch.io! <<< Twitter | Tumblr | Instagram | Facebook | Discord | Itch.io | VNDB Summer's here and school's out! Join Kevin and his group of friends as they leave for a much-anticipated trip into the wild outdoors. There will be camping, fishing, hiking... Oh, and campfire stories, of course! But don't believe everything you hear. All the nasty rumors surrounding Wright Lake are surely just that - rumors. Or are they? Whiteheart Woods is a visual novel that explores the themes of friendship, love, and personal secrets, set in a world on the brink of a great change. Experience a story- and character-driven narrative, and make meaningful choices that affect your relationships and determine what endings you get. Genres: supernatural, mystery, comedy, romance, suspense Romance: B x G, B x B 4 pursuable characters (3 female, 1 male) Over 50k words of script (over 5h of gameplay) Multiple endings that depend on your choices Character sprites with blinking animations and various outfits CG, Background and Ending Galleries H-scenes Steam Achievements and Trading Cards Available for Windows, Mac and Linux Just like every summer, Kevin takes a break from the noise and hustle of big city life. Bringing along a group of close friends, he leaves for a week of cabin camping on the shores of a remote lake, deep in the wilderness. But despite being known for its breathtaking, serene beauty and crystal clear waters, the area also holds a reputation for bizarre, unexplained happenings. It isn't long before the group begins to discover that there is more to Wright Lake than even the most outlandish campfire stories would suggest... Content warnings: general mature themes, strong language, use of alcohol, nudity, sexual content. Nayru - Lead Developer / Artist / Writer / Programmer MstMori - Artist / Writer / GUI Designer Marcianek - Background Artist Questions: 1. What parts of the demo did you enjoy/didn't enjoy and why? 2. Which character did you find the most intriguing so far? We'd love to hear what you think!

  13. Well guys, it finally happened. SoulSet is now officially on Steam! http://store.steampowered.com/app/589860/ If someone had told us we'd get to where we are now those ~20 months ago, when we started working on SoulSet's very first demo, we wouldn't have believed it. It has been a path laced with sleepless nights, lots of self-doubt and waaay too much coffee and instant ramen (and none of those are any good for you). But we made it and SoulSet is finally out for you to enjoy. This is a huge milestone for us as game developers. We've learned a lot during this little adventure and we'll be sure to carry this experience into our future projects. Here's to a great, successful year, everyone! We dearly hope you'll have fun playing SoulSet! Cheers! - Nayru, MstMori & Marcianek
  14. We would also like to wish you a Merry Christmas and/or Happy Holidays! PS. Those are 3DS paint app fanarts by @Marcianek!
