Hello everyone. It's been a while since my last news post; I tend to get so busy working on stuff that I sometimes forget to talk about the thing that I am working on. This month is a bit of a milestone for my game, Adventure High, which is reaching v0.20; a nice round number and what represents nearly a year and a half of work so far.

The game has come quite a long way since I released v0.16 back in October. There are several new scenes that include large splash images, several new spells, new enemies, an improved combat UI, a full story arc has been added to the Heroic plotline, while all three major plot-lines have had multiple scenes added to them. Outside of the main plot, most of the students have also had new scenes added to allow you to further build your friendship with them; or manipulate them in new ways.

For those of you reading this who have not played the game, and thus have no idea what I am talking about, Adventure High is a game about power, and temptation. The main character has a gift for magic related to Control, and you are put into a setting where you can choose to use this power however you like.

Instead of having the story branch based on predetermined dialogue choices, however, I have a system in place where in most conversations you can cast spells on the person you are talking to; to only to manipulate or control them; but also to help them in some cases. I get annoyed at black and white morality systems in games; often you either must be the most evil being in the universe, or the most perfect person in the world and half the time it's pretty obvious which of the two the game really actually wants you to be.

So in this game, I want my game to avoid those pitfalls by having those gray areas fleshed out with actual content rather than expecting you to continue pushing yourself towards one extreme or another. I am hoping by having original content not only on the extremes but also in the gray areas between them, you will feel free to make your own decisions in the game without fear that you are missing out on content by not playing the way you are "supposed to" be playing.

I will be releasing the latest version of the game on the 20th of this month, so keep an eye out for it if it interests you. If you would like to get a look at it before then, it is available to patrons pledging one dollar or more over on my patreon campaign right now. I do a Patreon campaign so that I can afford to keep making free content. So, if you like what I'm doing, it'd help me out a lot if you check it out here: https://www.patreon.com/Changer?ty=h
