Responding - Update - Touhou Mystic Seal extended
Hello, I have been working a lot in Mystic Seal, as some of you may know, CCLE has been canceled, and I started a new game based on it.
Answering some of the repetitive questions:
>Why aren’t you posting?
For a couple of reasons, Mystic Seal’s demand is high, each time I post I get a dozen of messeges, and also, I want to maintain most things as surprise.
>What happened to Servant of Tragedy? and the voice actors?
As I posted before, I will contact them again when the game is a little more prepared, and no, all the characteres are taken sorry.
>Why is it Mystic Seal taking so long? I want to see my character/collab
Originally THMS was supossed to be released quickly, but as I said the demand was very high, much more than expected, somehow, its a 10000% more popular than all my other games, (yeah, I have other games) so I decided to take my time to develop it very carefully.
If you want while you wait, you can send me a messege and I will give you an extended version of Reimu’s Team Route.
>You didnt respond my messege.
Sorry, I missed a few, and on top as I posted before, I lost access to this account for a while.
>Are you still recieving OCs?
Yes and no, if you played the demo you can see what their purpose is, to be hint dealers, merchants, helpers, short event or casual chat NPC. I got a few requests of people that wanted more protagonism or special requests. I can’t do that, it would be unfair for the other artists, or I would have to give everyone the same, which, wont happen.
If you understand this you can send me your character.
>What’s up with Anarchy Stocking posts?
I guess it is some kind of joke, some time ago certain someone in certain imageboard said my character Sabrina from CCLE/PoH looks like her.
I dont see why, if anything, they share similar hairstyle. Pic related.
>Wanna post your game in RMN?
Beg harder.
>Who is Patchy?
A member of my development team, she’s missing.
Thanks everyone for the support and patience.

Why the change in Azul's look?
balthasar02 balthasar02 Said:

I got dozens of complains about her appearance, so a change was a must do, I was not satisfied with her look either, also as I said I will turn the story into something less happy, she has now dark colors and long hair, its a violent change but had to be done.

Awesome you still live! I was beginning to wonder what happened to you.

I will notify you all if I die

So while I was gone, it seems we produce lolicon…

Will you change Sabrina's name to Stocking already?

Yes

How percent are the TMS? I ANXIOUS.
balthasar02 balthasar02 Said:

it was 90%, but happened that the demo got a lot of people interested, I did not expect that, I’m not a big or pro dev my other games dont have more than 900 downloads and this little demo got over 20k, reason of why I took this seriously(more) and included more world areas, characters and abilities per character. Also, I am not posting screenshots and gifs like before because I want this to surprise everyone.

Now I’m halfway of the retro era team, and Reimu Team needs a little work, so I’d say 60%, no ETA, sadly. I want it to be a long game with lots of things to discover.

Thanks for asking, have a nice day.

Tea goes here

AKA monthly update, sorry for not responding the “are you dead?” messeges, my projects even if going slowly, are having progress, Mystic Seal and Servant of Tragedy are going as planned, while CCLE and PoH will be erased and combined into a new project, all the characters will have major changes in appearance and the game will be very different.

As a nice detail, I got hit by a truck and almost died, no joke, well, see you later.

YOU'RE NOT DEAD
balthasar02 balthasar02 Said:

Probably not.

Asker Anonymous Asks:
How about voices in Mystic seal?
balthasar02 balthasar02 Said:

Voices for touhou characters, I dont know, that should be very special and well done, I’m not sure, I will think about it after the programming is complete but honestly I didnt think about it yet.

In other news, Uboachan is dead.

UPDATE

About Mystic Seal  74/80 of the OCs are complete, I am contacting each author in private, I’m trying to maintain the new content hidden so the surpises will be more, most of the areas in the retro-era scenario are also complete 

About CCLE all the game is having a rebuild (again) this time in Unity

Wish I could say something about Servant of Tragedy, I am only one… sigh

Suggestions are welcome, greetings
