Don't forget the 18+ patch, featuring gorgeous CGs from @sendrawz

It's pre-installed on stores other than Steam.

For Steam you'll need to install the free DLC, or download and install the patch manually from the links below:

While we count down the days until Man And Elf's release, here's the recently completed trailer for A Dragon's Treasure: youtu.be/PKBTkGYVOD4

The release of A Dragon's Treasure has been delayed. The new release date is July 27th.

More details here: steamcommunity.com/games/71785

Man And Elf is still on track for June 22nd release.

A new update for Sable's Grimoire is now available on Steam and Itch. Updates for other stores coming soon.

This update doesn't contain any new routes or other major content, just a lot of minor improvements.

More details here: steamcommunity.com/games/71785

Small status update:

The script for A Dragon's Treasure is done. Just needs more editing/proofreading at this stage.

Man And Elf still has two scenes which aren't quite complete, otherwise it's in the same boat.

Remaining music and artwork is expected to be complete shortly.

Editing and checking for consistency may take longer than expected.

I'm currently going through all 3 games ensuring events, lore, etc. all match up. It's a surprisingly time-consuming process, but it's necessary.

The release of Man And Elf has been pushed back 2 weeks to avoid coinciding with Steam's game festival (June 9-14) which was recently announced.

It's now scheduled for release on the same date as A Dragon's Treasure, though this might change.

The soundtrack store pages for Man And Elf and A Dragon's Treasure are now on Steam.

They will be released on the same date as their respective games.

Also, the first game's OST cover art has been updated to match the new ones.

Release is still a few months away, but development has been going well. Fingers crossed for smooth sailing ahead.

So much to write, so little time. I have the next 3-4 years worth of projects mapped out, more or less.

No idea if I'll be able to adhere to my intended timeline though. Some things will probably get shuffled around too. But hey, that's just how it goes.

I didn't get as much done this year as I would have liked, but good things are on the way.

As you can probably tell from all the blue, I'm keen to expand the Sable's Grimoire universe in 2020.

It'll also be nice to finally make a new crime VN (but that's probably 2021).

I present to thee a quick x-mas sketch from Flora, Sable's Grimoire's artist. Happy holidays!

Nothing pretty to show off right now, but for those wondering about the next additions to Sable's Grimoire, I've posted a (spoiler-free) progress update here: steamcommunity.com/app/717850/

TL;DR: Both games are going well, and I hope to release them April/May 2020.

My Heart Grows Fonder is out now! Available on Windows, Linux and Mac on Steam and Itch.io.

The Android version isn't available yet, but will be on Itch.io.

I'll also be contacting JAST and MangaGamer about selling MHGF in the near future, but for now it's only on Steam and Itch.

I'm pushing back the release date for My Heart Grows Fonder by 2 weeks.

As it turns out, the original release date (Oct 31st) is Halloween. Who knew?

Releasing right in the middle of a holiday sale period seems like a bad idea, so mid November it is.

You know those "all characters are over 18" disclaimers?

My Heart Grows Fonder just failed Steam's review process, and one of the changes they want made is for that disclaimer to be added.

I always wondered who actually cared about those disclaimers.

I find it weird that MHGF, a game where the main characters are working adults who dated in college, needs that kind of disclaimer, while many games in school settings don't.

But hey, if a disclaimer is what they want, that's easy enough to add.

The trailer for My Heart Grows Fonder is now up.

Development is going well. Music, artwork and writing are all close to completion.

As long as there are no problems with the approval process on Steam, we should be on track for the October 31st release.

The game will be available on Steam and Itch.io, possibly Jast and MangaGamer.

The 18+ patch will be available as free DLC on Steam, and pre-applied everywhere else.

I finally got around to updating my website. It should work much better on mobile devices in particular. Hopefully I haven't broken anything too badly.

I may end up using it for blog posts instead of just as a portfolio, but we'll see.
