[Update] CRWL: Scene 4 is online!


Scene 4 has been added to the Demo!

 RATE on IFDB | TUMBLR POST | REPORT BUG

I have spent the past few months reworking and refining this update to make it all nice and shiny. It is finally ready! I can now take a break, lol

This will update is bringing over 63k DOUBLE CHECK words of new and edited contents and Codex. This amounts to 52k words in an average playthrough count (not counting the codex).

What you can expect in this update:

  • Visit the trendy shop of Judy's Scissors.
  • Choose your outfit for the ball.
  • Have some interesting exchanges with the owner.
  • Find a strange object with a lock.

Again there are a lot of things I have edited and fixed on top of the added Scene. So full Dev log below.

A huge thanks to @gamesbyalbie, @groggydog, Lore, MeiZi, Riviera, & SjoerdHekking for beta testing the game, their invaluable help with their advices and help!

IMPORTANT: You will need to restart the game completely, since [again] I’ve changed a lot of code. Also spoiler-y.

  • UI: The Codex and MC Pages had been reformatted, with a side menu.

Notes:

  • You may not reach the END Demo page if you chose to go to Judy in the morning. I will add the missing passage in the next update :)

Aside from answering asks/fixing bugs, I will be taking some time away from writing this story to focus on other projects nearing completion (see @manonamora-if for more info). I just need a break from the story for a bit.

30/06 - 1st round of fixes from the Google form: issues with the desk and appearance
