Q&R Tuesday

Sorry for missing Q&R yesterday, gang. I was in the studio all day with Adam and Alvin recording. Let me just say I’m REALLY excited about the voiced version of Backstage Pass.

Anyway, on to the questions!

When is the next content update for BP?

Probably sometime within the week. Two of the three hidden routes are ready to go, and we’ve added more Benito and Matthew scenes in response to fan feedback. There are a couple bugs we’re still hunting down - mostly related to various operating systems, but we’ll do our best to make sure everyone can enjoy it!

Is there an (estimated) release date [for Backstage Pass]?

All the major content updates should be complete by the end of this month. Once that’s finished, we’ll be able to call in our voice actors to record any extra material we’ve added, which should take a couple weeks depending on their schedules. After that, the “official” release will depend on how many bugs we find (but the number is getting pretty low these days).

I am deciding to buy Backstage Pass ^^ I don’t know if I should buy the Beta or wait until the official final release of the game. If I do buy the Beta v, will it include the same content as the official one? What are the differences/similarities? :3

If you want to just sit back and enjoy the game with all the voices and no bugs or typos, we recommend you wait for the official release. If you want to be part of our beta testing process (finding all the bugs and typos), you can pre-order. You can also pre-order for the bonus goodies, then just wait for the official release to play. The beta version is incomplete (no hidden routes, a few bugs and typos, no voices), but once the game is done, you will receive the full version.

BP sketches from OC meme.  I wanted to do more of them before posting but it looks like it’ll take me a while to get to them TvT;;  Sorry to those who are still waiting. 

But here’s what I have done so far! A lot of them are on my own interpretations so they shouldn’t be treated as canon k /papming

Alvin has a brother who plays football/soccer. Is that a spoiler? Hm, probably not.

mizunoseishin:

I’m in the mood to draw so here are Backstage pass fan arts. I haven’t played this game but it seems cool! I drew Alvin cuz I hope there’ll be a secret route for him (^0^). Anyway, my style is different from Tooaya-san’s so all chars don’t look as they should be. My bad.

(I want to buy a graphics tablet so much.)

Sian’s hair is so cute. O:

An interesting(?) Throwback Thursday for today. On the left, the original sakevisual logo. On the right, our current logo. The name “sakevisual” was originally a reference to a “sake bento” bento box, so our first logo was a bento box. However, it was way too complicated to be a proper logo, and most people associated “sake” with the drink and not the food. So I made a cleaner logo that was easier to identify. I still find the original more endearing, but I think our current one is much more appropriate.

Random tidbit: Merui has a sticker of the original sakevisual logo in her bedroom. You can see it in RE: Alistair++.
