Chapter 1 enters beta testing phase

Burning Courage

Hello all, Chapter 1 of Touhou Mecha will soon be entering the beta testing phase. We’d like to have a few people test the game before it the public release. We’re looking to make this one fairly quick compared to the ESR testing phase. It takes about an hour to run through, and it doesn’t branch like ESR, so I’m thinking of getting 3 or 4 testers for this one.

EDIT: We’ve got enough testers for this round. Thanks!

Almost there!

Hello, everyone! It’s been a while since the last update. Some good news; the first Chapter of Touhou Mecha is almost here!

We got a lucky save in the music department for this game; OverCoat, the guy who put together the original “Ah-Eh-I-Oh-You” in Katawa Shoujo, has generously offered to compose a few songs for Touhou Mecha. He’s done quite well, and the music needs for the first Chapter are pretty well filled out. Great thanks to OverCoat for his contributions!

Meanwhile, all the mechs that appeared in the Touhou Mecha webcomic have gotten major design overhauls. Have a look!

What’s left:
-A handful of CGs
-General editing (Art, writing, SFX, animation)

I’m hoping at this rate that we can get the game ready for beta testing by the end of March, and the finished release either by the end of March or early April. (I don’t expect testing to take long though; it still takes around an hour to run through) Until then, please wait warmly while we take care of business!
