Hey, sorry for the late update, first of all!
Secondly, I sent out an alpha build to my playtesters yesterday! Got mixed results - will be including higher levels of customization next round. I'm on a beefy computer these days so I need to be sure that it's not super resource intensive.
I managed to get a few more voice actors. Coolette and Ciao Ciao are entirely programmed, animations included. I will add more as time goes on, but they have enough to get things started. I'm polishing up a few cosmetic things at the moment. I'm likely to go back to character modelling very soon here, but I'm considering putting in the programming for those I have done first. I'm honestly not sure what's going to be the best at this point. I have to seriously weigh my options and figure out what is going to be easiest for me to release first - trailers or the rough gameplay demo. I feel like a GP demo still needs a level of polish I haven't done yet. But we'll see.
Will post screenshots later!
