Pinkalie here, bringing you our November update!
First of all, thank you all for participating in our most recent poll. Monthly updates stood out as the clear winner here, so you can expect them around the 15th of each month.
So what have we been up to since the last update?
Robo and I have been very busy with outside contracts this past month, so this update is not as hefty as the previous one; but I did manage to squeeze in some quality work on the characters.
Here you can see the evolution of the male face.
I also did some topology work on the female body. This is still a work in progress, but I am getting improved flexibility in both the hands and elbows!
I’m excited about this because these topology improvements will all be transferred over to Estelle as soon as we finish the story module.
Check out the new hand setup in all its glory, as well as a side by side of the old Estelle hand. You can really see how much more personality the new one has, and the possibilities for hands-on sexy times are now wide open!!!
Now that you know what we’ve been up to for the past month, we want to announce some temporary changes that we’re going to be making. We’ve decided to pause our regular Patreon or SubscribeStar reward tiers, and are replacing them with a simple tip jar for the time being.
This isn’t a decision we came by lightly. The idea is that it will let us continue to work at our own pace, guilt free without feeling like we’re taking advantage of all you wonderful supporters who simply thirst for more content than we are able to provide right now.
We’ll be continuing to dedicate time towards completing the story module, updating Estelle, and ultimately bringing new content to Companion After Dark; and you will still be able to follow our progress as we continue to post regular monthly updates.
Before our Patreon or SubscribeStar return to normal, we will be focusing on finding more sustainable ideas for reward tiers. We would love it if some of you would chime in and let us know what you’d personally like to see as rewards, either during the pre-production phase or when we go back to Companion After Dark.
You guys have been beyond generous and I want you all to know that no amount you gave us went unnoticed. Once the graphic novel is completed, You, our faithful patrons, past or present, will be getting it in full, a whole month before it is made public!
For anyone who simply wants to leave a tip for the sake of supporting what we do, we genuinely appreciate your kindness! For those of you who are scared we might disappear, do not fret; we are in this for the long haul.
We have been able to sustain our independent lifestyle ever since we started as freelancers more than 5 years ago. It just means that our development is a little slower than we would like, for now.
Thank you all, I don’t think we could ever say it enough!
Pink and Robo
