Update 4/19: The Origins of Sanae Kochiya

Buenos dias! We’re late this week on the blog post, oops. But the team continues to steadily move forward.

A big point: we finally created the introductory scene, showcasing Sanae’s story in the world of reality. For us players, we see only a short walk through Moriya Shrine, but for Sanae, it’s her childhood growing up with two gods. Also bonus: short-haired child Sanae!! A super cute addition.

Nearing the end of her adventure, Sanae’s past will return in stunning fashion. Without spoiling too much, let’s say that Sanae will experience a coming-of-age story of her own — overcoming her past to move forwards into a brighter future.

On the topic of the other levels, backgrounds for a bunch of the stages have been drawn and are ready to put in the game. We need to do a bunch of tweaking to make the parallax look nice, but the assets should basically be wrapped up.

The goal for this week: finish the Pillars (Tenshi) level!! And also the boss fight. This has been in progress for like a month now — and this will be the final week. Tenshi has the most hand-drawn animation frames out of any boss, so it’s sure to be a good fight.

Mobs for the Pillars level, and quests for the Cave level are completed as well. It finally feels like we’re reaching the end. Just 6 more weeks to go!
