Demo Fully Voiced!
Hey Awesome People! Stay tuned until the end of this update for some exciting news from Y Press Games.
The Reaver Route (the second largest route of the game) is well underway. At around 60,000 words, this ended up being one of the big ones! It will take us the rest of January and part of February to get it out to beta backers ($125+).
(For comparison's sake, the Rexillator route was 35,000 words.)
In the meantime--we've added voices to the demo game! Go grab the new demo version on Steam or Itch to hear all the characters FULLY VOICED! (Steam should update automatically if you already have the demo, or you can push to get it to update.)
As you know, Alpha Hole Prison will have partial voice acting. We decided to voice the entire demo portion of the game. Voice acting will be sporadic in the rest of the game, happening on the most important scenes in every route. But for now you can hear all the luscious voices in the demo!
Please give that a listen and respond to this update with your feedback. We'd love to hear from you.
Beta-backers will not hear voices in the beginning of the game yet. We'll put that in the next beta update.
The backer who purchased a sexy scene with any character has made made his decision! Who will get the extra scene? Xenoskar! We will start work on that and other large custom rewards once principle art is finished.
However, we've already started on the custom magazine images from the Solitary Confinement and All Digital Rewards tiers. This reward was a custom line art of something Miguel sees in the naughty magazine he's reading. We've finalized 16 of these so far and have 14 more waiting for art. That's all 30 images we needed for the six solitary confinement scenes! (There's one in each route.)
If you're waiting for your custom magazine image, please be patient. The artist is our illustrious colorist Elle Rei and she's taken a break from that work to catch up on a pile of coloring she had built up. Work will start again on these custom images after the end of February.
Other OTHER News
While our main team is hard at work on Alpha Hole Prison, our second team (with it's own programmer and artist) has started on a new yaoi game, Maelstrom! This will not effect the schedule of Alpha Hole Prison at all. We usually work on at least two games at a time.
Maelstrom: A Yaoi Visual Novel
Disgraced soldier Demetri is exiled to Secren, a dangerous world devoid of women. Earthlings are smaller and weaker than the violent men of Secren. Demetri's only hope for survival is to bond with a strong mate who can love and protect him. The heterosexual Italian-American refuses to do that. He's not a homophobe, but he won't have gay sex to survive--or will he?
We're pleased to present Maelstrom: A Yaoi Visual Novel, based on the hit novel series by Yamila Abraham (me) and illustrated by the internationally renowned Italian art studio Dany&Dany.
