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! It's truly heartwarming to hear whenever someone mentions that they are looking forward to playing the full game. It gives an additional boost in motivation! (๑˃ᴗ˂)ﻭ

Check out some great Demo Let'sPLays and Fanart that I shared in the latest update!

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!

Image

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

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!

Image

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!

Image

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!

Hello, friends!

I'm happy to announce two things today:

1. The Steam store page for Blankspace is up!☆・゚✧

Image

Please check it out and add the game to your wishlist! You'll be sure not to miss the release date that way - and it will also help me out immensely by making the project more visible on Steam! (๑˃ᴗ˂)ﻭ

2. The updated demo for Blankspace is now available!

Updates for the demo include:

  • 5 original music tracks from Odd (I've swapped out all the old music)
  • custom cursor images for hover areas during investigation phases
  • minor fixes

You can find the updated demo both on Steam and itch.io.

Image

Check it out for the new music, especially! ٩(°◡°♡)۶ I hope you like it!

Hello, friends!

Time sure flies by, doesn't it? Here's my development update for February. Buckle up, because it's gonna get lengthy!

Image

The faded green is the last state of progress, the more vibrant green is the current month's - I believe it's more readable this way, to show how much progress has been made this past month specifically.

To be honest with you guys, I thought Chapter 2's investigation phase would take me less time to code than the demo's did, since it's technically smaller in size, but it turned out it has a lot more investigation points to take care of. Things might be dragging on a bit, but day by day, I am slowly getting there. (~‾▽‾)~

Overall, there's been some good progress this month. Have a little sneak-peek for Chapter 2!

Blankspace OST teaser

If you haven't played the updated demo yet, you can still have a sneak-hear of the soundtrack! I asked Odd to upload the first 5 tracks from the game to YouTube, so you can listen to those to your heart's content.

Which track is your favorite so far?❤


Proofreader becomes Co-writer

I believe this is something I can finally make official. Xolf's been a big help to me with this project, and considering the amount of suggestions/ideas I ended up liking that came from him, I think it's only fair that I give proper credit where it's due. \(★ω★)/ I wouldn't make this kind of decision if I didn't believe it would be a positive thing for the project, of course. I hope you'll enjoy Chris' and Beryl's characters with some extra polish to them, all things considered.

It's truly fun having you on-board, Xolf!
