Time to talk about 0.2

Hello, Yeenlings!

It's been nearly two weeks since the release of the game's second chapter! So far, I've received a lot of praise and attention for the game, which of course, has made me a very happy game dev! 

That being said, I have some things I want to explain/discuss before the release of the next chapter. Nothing overly dramatic of course, but things that must be explained nonetheless. 

When is Chapter 3 coming out?

Truth be told, I don't know. In terms of both previous chapters, I've had to change the release date at least three times due to my own lack of time or waiting on resources to pour in. As previously explained, I want each release to be professional: I don't want to use placeholder assets if I can avoid it (I'd have to go back and fix them anyway). In that regard, Chapter 3 will be released... When it's ready. 

What's gonna happen?

I can't tell you that! But I do have a few details to share.

For the longest time, I've worried that my game only barely qualifies as a "Furry" game. After all, there are only two furry characters present in London and one of them is playing more of a supporting role. For that reason, the next build will introduce at least one new beastman to the table and a certain dragon will also be playing a much larger role. Please look forward to it. 

Anything else?

In order to help the game's algorithm, the next update to the game will be purely cosmetic. I haven't decided whether it be adding CGs to the game, adding a theme song, or straight-up changing the GUI. In either case, this will release a good while before the next chapter. I feel now's about the right time to think about stuff like this. 

I've also included a poll regarding the last chapter! Please give a look-see!: https://forms.gle/Qk7myDad5rc8omKKA
Well, I guess that's about it. Thanks again for all the continued support and love! Let's get London's Aesop to the top of the charts! 

Yours sincerely,

Omg I can almost feel a heartbreaking goodbye at the end when Ethan realizes Iroko will have to erase his memories.

Watchmojo: Top ten game endings that made us cry.

Omg, adding a theme song would be wonderful! I LOVE moments where i hear a theme and have the irresistible urge to play through the game again! (On my 4th playthrough of Echo...). Theme songs to me really makes important scenes super impactful, especially a theme that your audience can tie into your brand/game. I think that's the beauty of a VN compared to a normal book, visuals and sound! 

Also you definitely should feel proud of this project you got going! Its amazing! No matter if an update is delayed, the vn is never completed, or if a hiatus happens. The game exists, and with such great quality, it is forever apart of the burgeoning furry VN story telling platform! Kind of like a legacy haha! You are impacting so many people every day who want to get lost into a world created in SUCH a niche group of the VN community. 

I have completely believe this has potential to be "one of the greats" of the current/new generation of furry VNs, obviously the pioneer VNs of the past like Echo, Nekojishi, Extracurricular activities will always be the OG cornerstones. To allot of people, especially newer furry's, developers like yourself are going to be the first furry vn storytellers they encounter. As an older member of the fandom i'd like to say, the new members of the furry fandom, lgbtq community, or VN community, are in for a treat when they read your work! 

Super sorry if this message is cringe, i don't comment often. When i do, i want the developer to be impacted. Even if its the last thing i comment, i leave the fandom, or i fall out of love with the VN genre. Knowing i helped motivate a developer in continuing to be apart of a niche creative movement...kinda makes me feel like im helping in your legacy aha! 

Ok essay over, i hope i muster the courage to comment again! If not, then you best bet i'll be here playing every update in all your games! I wish you all the best in the future to you and any reader of this kinda cringe essay <3. 


Wow, that was a long one, huh? 

Thanks so much for your kind words about my game! Stuff like this is why I keep doing what I do; it always helps to know that people appreciate all the time I put into this!

I'll keep working hard to make sure my game ends up as good as the greats! To be compared to Nekojishi and Echo is an honour in of itself. Thank you! :D


Is Iroko going to have different outfits as you progress through the story?


Not a bad idea! That will take up a lot more time and assets, but I do want to add more clothes for our Yeen boy. Definitely need to give him a coat sprite at least.

We'll see how this goes: Please watch this space.
