2016 Status Report
Happy New Year! 2016 was not really an ideal year for us, as we had to patiently wait through things which cannot be rushed. But hey, the long wait has paid off, as they are about to come to fruition!
We’ll be incredibly busy once we’ve shown you the new opening movie this early January. Please look forward to it 🙂
Youko‘s almost done with the major routes with almost all endings covered. She’s worked very hard to make Sierra Ops something worthwhile to play and read.
Tooaya’s also done with all the updated Backer sprites.
Now before anything else, we just want to say we’ll be adding an option in-game to choose between the new vs original designs.
We believe having this option has a charm on its own, and doesn’t really ruin anything. Players who prefer the original sprites can enjoy tcwoua’s designs, while players who prefer Tooaya’s can enjoy playing the game with consistent art style w/respect to the CGs.

We’re aware that we’ve taken so long to finish the damn game, and were not going to pretend what we’ve been doing so far is really okay for our backers. Because of this, we’ve decided to accept refund requests from backers who haven’t received a single reward from the campaign. We’ll process the requests 2 months after Sierra Ops’ released on Steam.
Updating and Scheduling Issues No More
We admit our incompetence when it comes to meeting deadlines and posting updates. It’s ironic that for someone like me(Jason here) who’s handled a couple of VN Kickstarters to fall short in this. To be honest, me and kemeo have become so pessimistic about Sierra Ops that we had to shift our focus elsewhere to freshen up our creativity for the project.
We’re really glad Youko‘s nearly done with the entire game script, which means it’s safe to continue coding the game scenarios without worrying about possible major revisions. This also means we can show something worthwhile every month from now on, at least! 🙂
Thanks to everyone who’s been following our updates through social media or by contacting us directly, to everyone who’s criticized us and helped us grow, and to everyone who’s simply reading this while celebrating New Year.
Have a great 2017!
