Hello, friend!

Hey there, friend!  It's been a while.  How have you been?  I hope 2018 has started off well for you.  It's certainly been much better than 2017 for me.  Speaking of which...

Goodbye, 2017!

Oh 2017, how I loved you so.  Let us count the ways...

Wanted to make an update today, but got one month notice to leave the apartment I've been staying in for 6 years. Much work to be done. >.<

My wife is divorcing me because I'm consumed by work. I might be homeless a few months while I finish Soul Saga. #indiedev #gamedev

Trying to pack up and Phoebe keeps jumping in the moving boxes. I wonder if she knows we may never see each other again after tomorrow. pic.twitter.com/QehwqzDriJ

Trying to find an affordable place to live near San Francisco is like trying to revive Aerith in Final Fantasy 7.

Moving Forward

So bye-bye, 2017!  You won't be missed. I was hoping to finally get Soul Saga to you by the end of 2017, but these obstacles made last year the hardest time of Soul Saga's development (and the hardest time of my life).  Thankfully, 2017 is now behind us.  Although I'm still technically homeless, I'm focused and determined to deliver Soul Saga to you this year.  Which brings us to the good news...  

Soul Saga release date: July 2018

Soul Saga Release Date July 2018 Over the years following Soul Saga's Kickstarter, I have gathered mountains of art assets, written a bazillion story variations, and experimented with gameplay in countless different ways.  Each iteration of these elements always had you and your feedback in immediate consideration because the only thing I've ever wanted to do is make a game you and I can both be proud of.  Being the world's first solo developer to create a classic 3D JRPG with the production quality of Soul Saga has taken me through immense trials and tribulations. But the light is finally at the end of the tunnel.  I believe that... Soul Saga will be ready by July 2018!  July of this year will mark Soul Saga's Kickstarter's 5th anniversary and it's a conveniently appropriate time to finally get you the humble JRPG I've been working on for so long.  The desktop version will be released first and polish will be applied based on fan feedback.  Information regarding console porting will come after fan feedback has been applied to the Desktop version of Soul Saga. Stay tuned for further updates regarding Soul Saga in the near future!  

What do you think?

You are the reason I wake up in the morning, which is why I'm extremely grateful for us all to have the Disastercake Discord channel.  Discord makes connecting an effortless breeze, so feel free to jump in and join us in all of the JRPG discussions.
