So… long silence. I actually haven’t been idle – instead I’ve been trying something new, waiting to have a completed game before I release, rather than publishing updates piecemeal.

Lapis Azurai 2 is getting close to done.

A rework of the game mechanics from the ground up, it also has a complete plot. Three chapters, the third one completely different depending on which character you decide to romance. I’m sure it’ll disappoint some people, but Lapis 2 is PG13. No adult content to be found.

  • Chapter 1 (with more content than Lapis 1 has!) is not only content-complete, but also playtested / balanced.
  • Chapter 2 is 90% content-complete, but untested so far. Still needs one or two more events to round things out, but the main plot is complete.
  • Chapter 3 is 33% content complete. All three routes are in progress, to varying degrees, but none of them are finished, and it still needs more world-building sorts of events.
  • 13 ports of call, of which 11 have art so far. There were 6 locations in Lapis 1, for comparison.
  • The interface as a whole is far more polished than my previous games. I also haven’t had a game-breaking bug in probably two months now, even while adding events. There have been visual glitches, but the engine underneath is rock solid.

Expect a full release sometime this year (hopefully in the first half of it!) on GOG or itch.io. There will be a large demo, larger than the entirety of Lapis 1.

Here’s a log of recent git commits. I’m a nerd, so I find this sort of stuff interesting. Maybe other people do too?

    Merry Christmas, Blue!

    As fond as we all are of the adult content in your games, it always seemed out of place / tacked on in the original Lapis Azurai, so making the game strictly PG 13 seems like a good call to me.

    PG-13? Does that mean it’ll have strip clubs where people watch girls dancing around in bikinis as opposed to naked, like how a lot of shows/movies that are PG-13 do?

    Good to hear from you again regardless, and wow, you’ve been busy. Hope you had a good Christmas.

    But, yeah, PG whatever is fine for a game like Lapis. Much of a perv as I am it didn’t seem to mesh well in the original.

    Nice to see you back! :D

    And you’ve said before that Lapis would be PG13, so it’s not a big deal. But I still hope that you have more inspiration for more pervy games in the future XD

    • Pervy games I dunno – that muse seems to have fled. Pervy other things though? Well, those are definitely still on the table. I just bought a new webcam, you see, and…

      *^^*

        Damn! If that muse ever comes back, be sure to use enough rope on her so she can escape again :P

        (but keep the pervyness going, no matter in what form xD)

    Nice to see you around again :). While I admit I’m a little disappointed about the new Lapis not being adult, the truth is the type of game it was/is works just fine without that extra little bit of spice. I’m just happy to see you updating again!
