2018 Year-End Update

Hi everyone, Ajané here, it has taken me awhile to write this update and figure out how we should continue. I apologize for that, but I am doing my best. Game development takes a lot of energy, time, health of all forms, mental focus and money and at any given time in life, indies especially can face a lack of that.

I will keep this brief and give a mass update for all of our projects.

To the Edge of the Sky

  • Continuing indefinitely at the moment. Season 1 ends after Chapter 07 still.

  • There may or may not be a hiatus in between seasons.

  • Updates will come when they come. I want to focus on the quality of the update and my own health and other things rather than rush or force them out.

Mystic Destinies: Echoes

  • Will have a 2019 release date.

  • I want to formally yet briefly apologize for this once again. The creative team I chose for the game could not appropriately handle the demands and responsibilities of the game and it led to massive delays.

  • They will no longer be a creative team for ADS after this game. The writers will no longer be major writers on subsequent ADS games as well. They have been demoted to other roles for both the sake of ADS and their own mental health.

  • I can't change the past, but they will finish the game they went through so much for at least, so that we can move onto other things, and in more suitable roles for them.

Crowdfunding Rewards

  • 2019 will see the release of all crowdfunding rewards. This is my main goal for the year to make sure everyone gets what they paid for and walk away happy.

Future Games

  • For 2019, I want to focus less on ADS and more on other solo projects that I hope will also help bring attention to ADS eventually. You'll be able to read about those on my personal website and personal Twitter soon.

  • I want to complete the projects we have as well.

  • Therefore, we will not be introducing any new ADS original games in 2019.

  • I am interested in adapting certain other artists’ existing work into visual novels. If I should achieve any such collaborations, then we may see  games in 2019, but we won't be introducing any original new story lines as a company.

I don't think I've often understood how much our games meant to people, but thanks to your love and support, I'm starting to. Thanks for hanging in there with us as we grow. Happy holidays and let's have a great New Year.
