Dev Update #40: News, CG Teaser

Hey guys! I know it's been a few weeks since the last update. Since school is back in session, just expect one every 2-4 weeks, still on Sundays. I can't always guarantee I'll have content to show you aside from just news, and I like to at least give you guys some previews so if I don't have one available, I'll wait until the next week to post an update. 

This one is pretty short and just something to give you guys an idea of what's going on!

Also, some links before we start:

1st Degree: What a Lovely Summer:

Please make sure to add the side game to your collection on itch if you will not be waiting for the steam release!

1) News/Update

The side game has been fully coded! I'm currently in the process of testing it! I've run into a few things that need to be fixed already, so the recoding phase might take a bit of time. I'm hoping no longer than a few more weeks, but it's looking like the side game will be out in March potentially. Again, POTENTIALLY. My coder is quite busy with other projects as well. After the code has been updated, then we will release it to our Patrons in the $8 tier or higher for beta testing for about a week before taking feedback, recoding if necessary, then releasing it on itch. We will release it on steam a little later since it's a bit more of a process. 

2) CG Teaser

Just a cute little possessive Rei, that's all! Fun fact: most of the finished Minami CGs are r18+. Seems he's a bit of a naughty one!


Just a little side note, but I really do apologize for the slight disappearance on my part. I've been getting pretty busy with school along with having to do commissions to help with some bills, so 1D has been on a little of a back burner until I can get this side game out. I really thank you guys for your understanding and patience. It is all coming, with time, but life is just a busy mess at the moment. I'm not planning on taking any summer classes though so I'm hoping major progress will be made on the game at that time!

3) Questions

1) How would y'all feel about a non-spoiler tier on Patreon? Like just with the sketches that won't be in the game and similar stuff.

2) How's life?


As always, if you have any private questions, please send an email to
