  1. If you'd like, you can DM me your save and I can see if there's anything I can resolve.
  2. Hi! I thought I'd give a quick update now that things are starting to tone down a bit. This post will cover some finer points around Patreon, as well as just giving y'all a general update on stuff. This'll be the last update for a while, but it's a good point to just check in regardless. Patreon I thought that I would start by discussing my Patreon. This is a really important topic to me, and I'll be discussing why I've started one, why I need it and what its exact purpose is. I will keep this explanation brief, and to the point. It'll be a good ol' heart to heart. After that, you won't hear about it again o7. If you'd rather not hear about it at all, you can just skip the following section. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- So, Caz, why do you need one? There's basically two reasons Episode 5 took three years, homies. Time and money. Rent prices in NZ are sky-high, especially where I live, so I work a couple of jobs to keep up with that. That'd be fine, but the medical degree I'm doing is also incredibly time-consuming (unfortunately Posty and Ruby can attest to my irritatingly frequent absences), leaving very little to often no time for my project. I get it, everyone works hard, and has their own struggles. This is true, and for this reason I only ask for Patreon support from those who are truly able to support this project without causing any problem for themselves. What's the plan? Do you even have a goal? Yes, I have a very specific goal with Patreon. My ideal situation would be to make just enough to drop one of my jobs, and to inject those hours (from otherwise working) into grinding out this project. This would speed up the development process dramatically, and allow me to put more time into crafting a product that I could be genuinely proud of. Closing thoughts In an ideal world, I wouldn't require Patreon. Unfortunately, it's not really an ideal world for me at the moment. That being said, I actually believe that Patreon, if utilised correctly (using the tiers), should be pretty fun for everyone involved. Patreon is an avenue that allows me to work on my game as much as I want to, which is far more than I am currently. I cherish working on the game, and I would love to spend more time doing so. For that reason, I see Patreon as a means to largely improve upon this project. I understand it's a touchy subject, but I'm glad to have got it off my chest. I'll shut up now, don't worry! Love y'all <33 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Anyway... moving on! Intermission wholesome boi from Ruby [The rest of this post is taken from patreon] Aftermath, and looking forward! It's been just over a week since we dropped Episode 5 and boy, it has been wild. It's been so great to see the community's reaction to the new art polish, the balancing, and the story that I worked so hard on. Before I released Episode 5, there were a large number of things that I worried about - did we live up to expectations? Could I continue the story in a way that I was actually happy with while respecting the characters that I had already created? Did Desolation still have a community that would hold it up after it re-launched? Despite the issues that Desolation launched with, I'm pleased to say that things went pretty well. So then, where to from here? I just started a new medical run at the hospital that I'm studying in, and time has already started to run away from me again. The hours at my (less desired) jobs have increased as well, following New Zealand basically returning to normal. This time, at least, I've put a lot of thought into how I can keep Desolation moving forward (at a reasonable pace too!) without wearing myself out, and I'm excited to see how that turns out. To be fair, I don't have much else to tell you guys at the moment - except to watch this space. I'm looking to make some big changes with Desolation in the near future, especially with the help of some friends in the community who have really broadened my outlook on what can be done (mechanically) with a fan game like this. As time goes by, I'll be certain to keep you guys updated when there are interesting things to report. For now, I'll keep a pin on things, but I'm incredibly happy with the future story of Desolation. Thanks again for your support, it really means a lot! Cheers, Caz
  3. This is a weird one. Please send me your save so I can figure it out, thanks!
  4. Hi. I've just checked out your save - there's actually no issues. Here's how you can progress: In the future, please add a spoiler tag to E5 content.
  5. Hey guys, I just wanted to drop in and say cheers for all the great work that has gone into the shinies so far! The quality is so high, and I'm really excited to have them included in Episode 6! Thanks again o7
  6. I haven't just removed existing elements or anything like that - I just meant that I had changed future plans with the game. I won't speculate on Kuiki's future specifically, but yeah I'm aware of his current position in the game.
  7. I made this post at least three years ago. Unsurprisingly, a lot has changed since then. I changed many ideas surrounding Desolation's direction, this being one of them.
  8. PM your save, and I'll fix it. It's likely due to the Tristan bug being activated.
  9. PM me your save, and I'll look into it.
  10. We are not currently considering romance as a mechanic for the MC in Desolation, and have made no plans for it. Magic (in other words, we'll keep you posted).
  11. Cheers to everyone who is helping out with Desolation by answering questions in the Deso Club - it really saves myself and Posty a load of time, and it's cool to see the community help one another out 👍
