There hasn’t been a blog post in a while mostly because, as mentioned before, we are entirely focusing on launching at this point. No new features, just a bunch of bug fixing. We still have art to show off, but I don’t want to spoil too much for you guys. Still, I figured I should still at least make a post to get people ready as for what they should expect for our launch.
As far as official release dates are concerned- we have some. The game is currently slotted to come out on July 20th. Because of our agreements with Nutaku, this is a pretty hard date and missing it is very sub-optimal for us. Like many other Nutaku offerings, we will also be subject to a soft launch period starting on July 6th. Those in specific regions will have access to the game ahead of time during this period- however game content updates are not scheduled until after the official launch.
I’ve mentioned this before in the Discord, but I figured I’d bring it up here as well. Unfortunately, we won’t be able to have everything in at launch that we wanted. Then again, all games end up with some form of cut content. An example of some of the content you won’t see at launch is the lore snippet system. There’s plenty we can in theory add in after launch, however what ends up making it back in will end up depending on game performance and player feedback. If we get a lot of requests from you guys for different systems and features than the ones we want to add, we might go with those instead. Rest assured though, the core systems of the game are in place so we’re confident you guys will still enjoy Dimlight City!
Now when it comes to Kimochi backer rewards- we will be delivering them during the full international launch instead of the soft launch. While we are aware that some of our backers come from the territories which will have access to the soft launch, we want to be able to send out all of the rewards in one batch. This means the best time to do that is during the international launch. Many apologies to those who will have to wait for their rewards.
Any questions can be directed towards the team in our Discord where we are more than willing to answer fan questions.
