This update The Blackout is mainly focused on improving the overall quality of the game with new features and some new content, so let’s see what’s new!
– A new game mode:
For those who have a preference for more traditional visual novels, a VN mode has been added. With VN mode, you can focus on the story without the sandbox elements.
– A new model for Lana and new textures:
Lana’s model has received many new details including a new highly detailed custom skin for a very realistic look. I’m now working only with very high-quality textures, which requires more time to make the renders but the results are really much better. Here are some examples of Lana
– A new model for Emily :
A new high-quality custom model for Emily has been completely recreated to better fit Emily’s character and personality. All renders with Emily have been completely redone and replaced in this update.
– Over 200 new renders redone
A lot of work has been done on the visual aspect of some renders which have been completely redone with a better technique, lighting and facial expression.
– New content The Blackout:
As I said, even if it was not the main goal, some new content has been added in this update. Some new scenes, new music and new choices have been added especially with kylie and also new characters make their first appearance in this update.
– Special animation and warning:
All special animations have been redone to be perfectly loopable and in better quality (720p to 1080p). For those who suffer from photosensitivity, an option has been added to disable these special animations.
