September project balance update

Income was a bit lower this month. I neglected to update the projected end date mentioned in the donate screen (it still said ‘Late August’), so that probably didn’t help!

This month I’m working on all the UI work that’s accumulated to try and make sure the game is a polished experience whatever you’re playing it on. There’s also a handful of extra settings that I promised over in the forums (like minion renaming and pronoun toggles etc.) that I need to implement.

I still don’t have a new illustrator/colourist lined up, but I’m continuing to make inquiries.

    Wow – it’s rare to see such a professional listing of income and expenses like this. Thanks! I hope you can drum up more business 🙂

    For illustrators, she’d probably be expensive, but the artist (Trudy Cooper) behind Oglaf ( would be perfect for your storylines. Good luck!

      I’m quite attached to the lair background, so I was trying to find someone who could fit within that style.

      I do love Oglaf though. They seem to have a pretty big audience, so I doubt they’re short on projects.
