How are you all doing?

It’s a tough year for most people around the planet. I hope you’re doing good!

Well, the Corona Crisis hit me harder than i’ve expected. As a freelancer i need to work hard to make a living these days. Unfortunately, Venus Guild so far is only a fun project i do in my spare time. Other things in my life are way more important right now. That’s sad, but i hope you understand. I guess many of you can relate to it.

But i’m okay and still can asure you that Venus Guild is not dead!

Just today i was looking at what i’ve got so far and it really makes me excited. The game looks original and sexy, there are some cool mechanics implemented and the whole thing has big potential, imo…

Will the demo be ready this autumn, like i was planning in my last post?

Most likely not! Because i’m still going for my vision, don’t want to hustle through the work with a hot needle, only because i’m far over my deadline due to uninfluenceable difficulties. It’s what it is.

On the other hand i really feel the urge to release the demo into the wild! I can’t wait to see if there are any gamers out there who are interested in my concept of a game – and even willing to support the project with donations/pay-what-you-want and alike. Oh, don’t get me wrong! I really haven’t even thought about the business side of the project. Still need to come up with a product that’s worth supporting.

So let’s get back to work! Stay safe everybody 😉

Thanks (no thanks) Corona

Worldwide, the corona crisis hits people very hard. I hope that you found a way to deal with that shit and that you and your community is still alive and kicking.

I don’t want to make excuses, but of course i had to deal with the pandemic as well, just like everybody else had to. It’s okay, i’m fine, but really needed to worry about many other things than Venus Guild for the past two months.

I’m now planning with a release date (for the demo) this autumn and trying to work out a schedule that will keep me busy over the summer. It’s really strange because the demo is almost ready but there’s still so much stuff to do! Crazy.

Edit: Please read this post on the “autumn demo” topic…

So i want to thank you for your patience. I want to realize my “vision” of the Venus Guild Game, no matter what sick viruses will enter the world. I know some of you can’t wait, me neither. I still won’t rush things, okay? 😉

I also want to thank my new followers on slushe.com, twitter and elsewhere. Sorry, that i don’t have new content for you, this will hopefully change soon.

Stay tuned, stay home!
