Wonderland Nights: White Rabbit’s Diary… or rather, 仙境之夜:白兔奇幻记 , out now on Steam!

That’s right! Last night my first translated work was officially released. And since then I’ve had to fix a bunch of minor things, sorry about all the updates!! But the achievements should all be working now, and there have been a minor translation improvement. There are even some reviews on the game now, which is very exciting for me. Thank goodness for Google translate so I can get an approximation of what is being said 😀 The link to see it is here: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1408540/_/

Big thanks to Grand Vision, and especially the people I worked with most closely, Britney and Ruby, who made it a very pain-free experience!

Dev blog #19 – White Rabbit’s Diary Released!

Hi all. What a week! Let’s start with an announcement…

Wonderland Nights is now re-released with full voice acting, new art, and quality updates. Check out our instagram and facebook as we profile each of the actors in the game.

WHAT ELSE…

New podcast episode out – just a short one, about our favourite games, here: https://www.spreaker.com/episode/41519578 . This weekend at Armageddon we’ll see what the sound quality is like in the hall, but we’re thinking of recording some content there. It also depends on how busy we are and if we run into any interesting people there (certainly, we’ll be sitting with one, our board game publisher Julia from Cheeky Parrot Games! We’ll see if she wants to talk 🙂 )

Our third episode of Apprentices of Tirenia went well, you can check it out here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLv-uX03VmexJxjHebLgo-tCNDKtGX3vuQ

How is the Armageddon prep going? Well… it’s actually almost done! After freaking out at how large the list still was one week ago, it turns out there were a lot of little tasks, and doing them was faster than I thought! James is still perfecting his characters and adventures that he’s running on the four days, but he said to me this morning he could run it now if he had to. So there we go. Besides a bit of shopping and picking stuff up tomorrow… we’re actually ready!

I also really only just remembered in the last 48 hours that we’re selling stuff tomorrow. Like, I’ve been so head down in the work that I forgot about how we might be making back some of the literally hundreds of dollars we spent on this. Cross fingers… to be honest I don’t expect to make a profit, but breaking even or near about would be awesome. We’ve got my two PC games for sale together at $15, the Dragons of Tirenia Introductory Guide at $10 physical or $5 digital copy, and our board game Cat Capers at $25. All of this is cheaper than you’ll find anywhere else. Hopefully the pledge and get a sticker campaign is going to get a bit of buzz going around our stall.

Oh and by the way, you can check out our new website at www.skybeargames.com , designed by our niece Lauren, and also www.dragonsoftirenia.com which I just finished up today.

Finally, I expect to be wrapping up The Nine Lives of Nim by 12th November. Fingers crossed for me! I’m pretty sure I’ll get it done, after seeing how Wonderland Nights went.

All right… tomorrow, into the breach! Wish us luck! Next time I write you, it will all be in the past!!

The four nations of Wonderland meet every year to agree on shared policies and enact their various schemes against each other. There are personal vendettas to resolve and enchantments hidden everywhere, and did someone mention the dreaded Alice? You are the White Rabbit, and your job is to organise the schedule for the annual summit. Every decision you make affects the destiny of Wonderland!

Will the King of the barbaric desert of Clubs declare active war on the pastoral paradise of Hearts? Will Prince John of the psychedelic land of Spades be able to elope with Princess Julie of the wealthy Diamond nation – two nations that are deadly enemies? What’s up with the King and Queen of Spades’s weird marriage? Does the King of Hearts suspect his loyal Duke Jorge of having an affair with his wife? Explore this and much more as you negotiate the likes and dislikes of the twelve guests of the summit.

Features:
– lots of replayability with 42 achievements, 14 characters, and 25000+ words in almost 3000 lines of dialogue – each playthrough only reveals at most 1/12th of the whole fabric of the story
– gallery with 24 pieces of unlockable art
– choose between simple choice menu for first time players, and the drag and drop choice menu for the power players, with randomizer, repeat and reset functions
– player codex containing unlockable information about characters’ relationships, secrets, motivations, and player goals and event history

ALSO! Prince of Cats is available as part of the amazing itch.io Bundle for Racial Justice and Equality https://itch.io/b/520/bundle-for-racial-justice-and-equality . I cannot recommend this bundle enough! Over 1000 games, assets, zines and more for $5, and for a good cause. Please check it out, and if you must prioritise buying one thing over another, get this bundle before you get White Rabbit 🙂
