Hi, everyone! Demo ver 8.0 is officially live!
This update contains 26k words’ worth of new content, but the demo file has a technically higher wordcount due to the newly-added feature for Book I: achievements! I had a lot of fun creating them as well as attaching the associated flavor texts, and they should bring a breath of fresh air to replays for those who are so inclined. They are available in both the public and Patreon builds.
Other than that, the update focuses very heavily on arc setup and Yotai worldbuilding, and also on relationships with four members of the core cast. It is impossible to experience the entire update in one go, but the way to get the most bang out of your playthrough would be (mild spoilers!) to go to the festival when offered the choice, and when it ends either watch the fireworks with F or go back to the inn for a special scene.
In the current build, F has the most complete path comparatively at 2/3 scenes, with Yu at 1/3 and Eli at 0/3. The polyamory kick-off scene is also currently pending. The next update will bring Yu and Eli up to 2/3 at the very least, though hopefully there will be more to it than that.
Also in this update: fixes to the long-standing cave collapse bugs in Chapter 3! Hopefully. I’m pretty sure. Crossing my fingers.
Link is in the OP. Your old saves should still work! But please remember that if you get a game-breaking error relating to the evar variable, or if Eli is missing their pronouns, you will need to load a Post-Demo 2.5 save.
Thank you for your patience and support!
New in this update:
- New story content (+26k words, now 295k words).
- 50-something achievements for the entirety of Book I.
- Various bug and grammar fixes.
DEMO ver 8.5
Release date: Late January (Patreon) / Mid-February (Public)
- Anywhere between 10k-20k words of new content.
- Progress in the Yotai festival scenes for Eli and Yu.
- Hopefully more? It’s a bit of a break month, so please don’t expect too much aha.
As always, thank you for following the development of A Mage Reborn!
