Design diary January

Hi all!

Christmas is long gone and the winter is settling in here in the UK. We’re making headway into our choose your own adventure/fighting fantasy book with the first chapter being finalised and edited.

You can check out an early version on the Patreon now, and subscribers will get an early view at the completed first chapter when it’s released.

We’re aiming for around 400 pages in total.

Speaking of early releases, we’ve moved to an early access Patreon model so subscribers will be able to access games, books and other things either a week or month sooner than public release.

In the last month we’ve put up new versions of Village Life (0.7) and Pilgrims Walk (early alpha), so if you have time – check them out when they pop out from early access.

Finally were undergoing a little brand change at some point, so keep your eyes peeled!

Have a good month and see you all next time!
