No this visual novel project isn't dead, not by a long shot! In fact, I've made more progress on it in the past 6 months than I probably have in 4 years. I've just been very quiet about it across all the platforms.

To clarify, I began writing for chapter 6 after I left my industry job back in December and just didn't stop writing! I proceeded to write all of chapter 7 and as of today have completed all 10,000 words for chapter 8. This brings me to starting on chapter 9 this weekend, the final chapter of my little VN series.

To say I'm a little nervous about writing it is an understatement. Hell, I had enough trouble trying to write Lanis and Ash's uh... 'consummation' scene! Performance anxiety you know? I've been building up to it for literally years! I didn't want it full-on overdone, but I didn't want any 'fades to black leaves it to you imagination' crap either. XD

Yes, getting past the writing still means I need to go back and draw all the new character art and make backgrounds, sound editing, and then code the visual novel, but as long-winded as those tasks are the real stressor has always been the script and story. With that out of the way soon it's going to feel like a home stretch for me.

Once the entire story/script is complete I'll be compiling and releasing each chapter as usual only now they'll be much closer together. My new (non-creative industry) job is wonderful and as I start at 5am and finish just after lunch time I literally have most afternoons at my disposal for creative stuff now!

A few small things have changed, and I'm aware that I need to go back to previous chapters and tidy them up and bring it all in line with the same interface and kinetic visual novel structure but my priorities are to finish it first. 

Eventually it'll be compiled into one final file, complete with a lovely animated opening and placed on Itch.io.

Then HAPPY DAYS! On to the next big thing, well not as big as Ex Astris. I won't be making that mistake again. ~

Thanks so much for following Ex Astris with my snails pace of releasing! Knowing there are people out there who look forward to reading it makes all the stress worth it though. ;3
Also your art style is so detailed! I love it. :D
