PDD is here to greet you! It’s that time of the month again. I believe we have reached a critical milestone, where we must not only refine the current gameplay demo but also plan for the future. What is the pivotal step for Lucid Realm on this development path? As the game’s popularity grows, I’ve felt both proud and anxious.
For the time being, I've been working on our strategy for the future year with our team! Let's get started with this month's report!
Highlight EventsUpcoming Phase of Shred & Tear - Announcement! After the Demo was released at Steam Next Fest, we’ve been given the opportunity to witness your love and support and, most of all - valuable feedback from players. This was our first significant achievement for the game. Even though it might be insignificant compared to the industry’s giants, for such a small team, we consider this as a major stepping stone for our upcoming future. It set the bar high for our upcoming works, yet we acknowledge that the hardship is yet to come!
We want to make it official here - the next phase of the gameplay Demo will be released around the end of 2022 or early 2023! With the wealth of earned experience in making games, my team and I will make sure it is elevated, a big shift in storytelling and worldbuilding! You guys can expect to see more of Kajun-chan, and much fewer bugs (fingers crossed!)
This next announcement may be a bit difficult to explain, but we will be giving Patreon a shot for the coming future as well. This was not a decision that I’ve made lightly, but I feel the call to come back to game art sooner or later. The game is going well at this rate, but it will be much better if I do what I do best. Overall, it is a universe of sexy beasts that I’m building - the world of Lucid! With that said, more details should be available on the Patreon, and I also have some questions:
How much is “too much”? And how much is “considerable” (for the donation tiers)?
Rewards? - I have loads on my mind. For example, sketches, early previews, 2D/3D artpacks? Tell me what you would expect to receive down in the comments!
Community & Press activities
Let’s look at one of the most detailed feedback that we have EVER received! Comment down here if you agree with kazemel89.
“I do think Gnocchi should speak a little unusual English or add some alien lexicon as it is an alien to convey or highlight his otherworldliness. Him saying “Aw fiddlesticks” or “holy hot ravioli'' is too human, maybe a made up alien cuss words or swear like “Frell!” or “Zeck!” Not saying you can’t still do it have “holy hot ravioli'', I found it humorous, just a suggestion to make him more alien.”→ An alien language? That’s a pretty cool idea actually, we’ve got some ideas that we would like to expand upon as the development progresses. How would Gnocchi sound? I really wonder. Is there a voice I can take for reference?
“Curious what is Kajun’s character and personality like. Looks can only drive a character and narrative so far. Hope we find out more about her and what she was like before being transformed or what her new powers is transforming her personality into.”→ Trust me mate, I have plans to reveal her past ;) In a comic format again eh?
“So what motivates and drives Kajun-chan and Gnocchi on a personal level? We know her body has transformed, but how will her personality, character, drives, and hopes change through the course of the game/story? Why does Gnocchi want to stop TEABAGS and needs to use Kajun-chan to accomplish it?”→ The TEABAG is not quite a united community I must say. They have different goals and mindsets, just like us humans! Tentamon’s technology is something quite interesting. They look cool, but honestly, not too humane :) the true reason and story of Shred & Tear will be slowly revealed as the game progresses later on! So no spoilers!
It has been some time since our last photo mode contest. Would you be interested in another competition? We have been working hard on developing the plot and world lately, and with them, many new bosses and creatures are in the concept phase. This means we’ve got a lot of naming to do! Would you like to join us?
Do you have any other activity you would want our Community managers to host? Let them know in #general *calling for Lily & Dawnbreaker*

Current State of Shred & Tear
New MERC boss coming (Sketch & 2D concept)
As I have mentioned, this is the critical phase for us to develop a more profound story of Shred & Tear. Not only for this part but maybe even for the upcoming titles. The new (unnamed) boss is here, and to keep things brief, she is a middle-rank officer of the Tentamon army. Therefore you can fully expect her to be a tough customer. Kajun-chan had better trained herself well! Heehee!
( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
Stage - Sketch
Stage - Colored concept
The current development state will be quite short for the time being since fixing bugs and developing strategies have been quite labor-intensive. We’ll present the WIP when it’s more polished, eh?
Some more boss developments
As you might have seen, there’s a giant creature at the very end of the Demo, or I might say biomechanical mutant, coming after Kajun-chan. This gives a great preview of what I plan for the boss designs. “Intimidating” is the keyword, as also “ruthless” and “merciless.” This also means Kajun-chan’s got her work cut out for her since they will not be giving her any room for error. Hope she’ll be ready for the upcoming training session *smh*
Kajun-chan’s armor - candy to the freaking eye
Are you impressed with Kajun-chan’s armor? Oh boy, you didn’t know, right? She is guaranteed to be kitted out with much more technology and alternative skins along the way. Sneak a peak right here! Doesn’t she look FIERCE with the design? Don’t even worry about how she’d move; the turbo boosters she has will also be updated! Await Kajun-chan ~
And these are also some ideas for Kajun-chan’s skins. The idea is that Kajun-chan will have to contend with more than just Tentamon, but also gigantic bosses of all kinds. She must look as aggressive and ready as she can be, and her armor must also make sense considering her power bar. Kajun-chan can be quite furious sometimes; she might get a burnout there.
2D Comic Artist in need!
I have some plans in mind for a Shred & Tear short comic and many individual paintings in the near future. Do you happen to know of any talented artists suitable for our project? Or, if you feel like you are a great artist, please take some time to send your profile to Lily (Discord: Lily P.#7102) or just leave a comment below. We’ll be waiting for you guys!
That’s it for today! Let me hear your opinions down below~
