Devlog - Yuu's Route Update (drafting and revising complete)

Hi everyone! Just popping in for a quick dev update on Yuu's route since it's been a little over a month since the last one! 

Yuu's route is fully drafted and mostly revised. I have to do a second pass through some of the chapters just to clean up a little more since they were heavily edited and changed during the first revision. But I have completed one full revision pass of this route.

I've proofread and coded up to Chapter 6 as well.

Yuu's route is currently 114,000 words uncoded (but I'm not sure what the final coded word count will be.) Currently the coded word count of the game is 981,000 words.  ╰(*°▽°*)╯

I haven't really started on much of the art yet - just gathering references and sketching out a single CG.

I've also started putting together my flowchart templates as that will probably be the next big thing I tackle before I get to the art and coding all the visual assets. 

So yeah! That's it.

The drafting is complete and I'm currently doing the editing, proofreading, and initial script coding. I expect to finish up with all the writing related things (revising, proofreading, initial script coding) and be settled into some other part of development by my next post here. Hopefully I'll be already coding and working on visual assets by then but we'll see.

Anyway, that's the update!

I will see you all in a month!

I just finished Magnus' route and I absolutely loved every interaction MC had with Yuu, so to say I'm excited for his route to be fully released is an understatement. Can't wait !!! <33


I hope people like his route. I feel like it flows a bit differently than the other routes - and the other Endgame routes in particular. Since I don't want it to feel repetitive, I tried to handle it a bit differently. 

I think they have some really cute interactions though so I hope everyone else likes him!


That's perfectly fine for his route to flow differently, it will make his experience more memorable and refreshing since it'll be new and unexpecting! <3


wonderful! please dont overwork yourself though take as much time as you need <3


Trying to get better at taking my time. Still not great at it, but getting more adept. LoL! (〜 ̄▽ ̄)〜


this is a mood.


o.o *vibrates with excitement*


Exciting! Cannot wait to see his route. He's long been one of my favorite side characters so I def cannot wait to see his romance side :)


Same here. My favorite flavor of LI are usually the emotionally challenged/stunted one's (Ari was definitely a fave).




Very excited for Yuu's antics lol. GS has already brought me and my mom some great inside jokes via playing together. 


That is so wholesome! (〜 ̄▽ ̄)〜


Yay, keep up the great work!


So exciting! Thank you for the update <3
