We're here with a comprehensive update to bring you up to speed on our exciting journey with the revamp of Episode 1, the development of Episode 2, and our strategic approach to game content.
📝 The Creative Process: A Blend of Order and Chaos
Our team's writing process is a dynamic blend of structured brainstorming and creative chaos. We're constantly adding depth and complexity to the story, sometimes leading to unexpected twists and turns. It's a process filled with revisions and fresh starts, but every step is a step forward in enriching the narrative of Bancroft Academy.
🎨 Animation and Rendering: A Labor of Love
On the visual front, we're diligently working on animations and renders, with a special focus on some spicy scenes that need extra attention to detail. We're excited to share a few glimpses of these revamped elements with you, showcasing the progress we've made so far.
🔧 Addressing Technical Challenges
Following the release of update 0.1.8, we've noticed some issues that need our immediate attention. Our team is dedicated to resolving these to ensure a seamless gaming experience. While this requires us to momentarily shift our focus from coding the Episode 1 revamp, maintaining the game's stability is paramount.
🌐 Balancing AVN Elements with a Broader Vision
We've taken your feedback to heart regarding our shift from a traditional Adult Visual Novel (AVN) format to a more inclusive one. Our decision to separate adult content through DLC reflects our desire to create a game that's more than just an AVN, appealing to a broader audience. This approach allows us to craft a game that's accessible and enjoyable for various players, including those who prefer to avoid adult content.
🎮 A Complete Experience with or without DLC
We're committed to ensuring that the base game of "Bancroft Academy" feels complete and fulfilling on its own. The "Lewd Upgrade DLC" is designed as an optional bonus, adding fan service scenes that don't fundamentally alter the core story. We've developed counter plots and implications to maintain narrative integrity, whether you choose to include the DLC content or not.
📖 Storytelling Flexibility
Our adaptable storytelling ensures that the game remains engaging and coherent, regardless of the player's choice regarding the DLC. This flexibility is a testament to our commitment to providing a rich and multifaceted gaming experience.
🔍 A Journey of Growth and Discovery
As a team, we are continually learning and evolving. Each decision we make, whether it hits the mark or misses it, teaches us something valuable. We are dedicated to growing with our community and shaping "Bancroft Academy" into a game that resonates with a wide array of players.
We're incredibly grateful for your support and understanding as we navigate these developments. Your feedback is crucial in this journey, and we can't wait to share more updates with you.
Thank you for being a part of the Bancroft Academy adventure. Stay tuned for more exciting news, and remember to keep exploring!
