Hello, dear players!

I've spent the past month focusing on the story, improving the old work in progress, and all sorts of other little things. This post will be smaller than the previous one, since there's a lot I can't show you, but here goes anyway!

Improvements to the Save Menu

Sometimes, I felt that text data alone wasn't enough, so I added a little picture to the saves, created at the moment of saving. And then I also cut the loading screen and replaced it with a smooth transition from that picture to the game (loading is almost instantaneous).

These pictures have size less than <200kb per file, usually much less, so don't worry about them taking up a lot of space.
(And you can also replace the pictures and play the animations right inside the game. Can someone try running a full Bad Apple clip?)

Positional Audio

I finally understood the positional audio in GameMaker and added it to some of the sources in the game - footsteps, bushes, flowers. It adds some depth to the scene.

Here's a video with the sound.

Improved Rufus' Rooms

All of Rufus' room graphics have been updated. Also made them easier for me to create myself, since I had vague plans to create some sort of "contests" to add fan-designed locations to these rooms, something like yume 2kki. Tell me what you think about it in the comments.

Rufus' Portraits Updated Again

Throughout development, Rufus has been changing, transforming, and it's happened again. This is probably the final version of him, as I really like it.

I've made this change because he is playing a role in the story again.

Model for Stable Diffusion fine-tuned on portraits from Mondealy

One of the more unusual news in the past month is the creation of this model, which can create characters in the style of portraits from Mondealy. It's not particularly valuable or useful, but you can have some fun anyway.

That's all folks!
Add the full game to your wish list if you haven't already!



And join the Discord server of the game, it's the easiest place to contact me, the developer! Or email me at mondealy.official@gmail.com
That's it for today. I'm still working tirelessly and making sure the game will be perfect by the time it comes out. Thank you for your attention and patience, and see you soon!

Sincerely,
