Update #133 Designing backer characters

Dear Project Phoenix backers,

Thank you for all the feedback in Update #132 “Release… the Kraken!”. Many of the comments were very helpful in gathering valuable opinions on how we should start the story, which I believe is a very important point. It’s important to talk and take opinions from all the backers as our gut feeling about what your opinion may be and what it actually may well be entirely different.

I have had the time to talk to Yoko about the comments posted from our last update and you all have given confidence in our decisions. Thanks again!

Here’s a photo of Asami working on Rie’s avatar concept sketch inside the game. We are currently working on what the best backer character design pipeline is for backers above the Civilian level. Hopefully by the end of the month, we should have completed our test trials and be able to start working on the character creation process with those selected backers.

Next update should also shed more light on the game music creation process, and finger’s crossed, we may have a new track from Tomoki soon.

Apologies for the short update, but back to work we go. As always, thanks for reading!
