Soundless FV Release + Donation Drive
Soundless Final Verse has at last released, and is available now on itch.io (link to Soundless Itch page)!
In tandem with the release, we will also be running a week-long donation drive in the wake of Hurricane Fiona and Super Typhoon Noru, and have thus reopened donations on downloads.
Please read through this post for more information about the donation drive, unlocking Adiaphoron, and other important information about the release.
When Soundless was first released 5 years ago, Hurricane Maria became the deadliest Atlantic hurricane of the 21st century. A donation drive was organized for Soundless's release, and $81 total was donated to a charity's relief fund.
We're doing it again.
We have achieved EVERY MILESTONE instantly (free icon, banner, wallpaper, and reaction stickers) for a whopping $176 and for taxing purposes had to close the Itch donation method, but are STILL COUNTING DONATIONS that are DIRECTLY donated to the organizations and reported using the methods linked in this blog post!
The drive ends a week from now on October 13th. After calculating the tax, itch.io will release the funds within a week, give or take, and then it will be split and sent.
When you first open Soundless Final Verse, you will be greeted with a dialog box that asks if you've read Soundless or not.
If you have, please hit yes in order to unlock the new After-info. After reading the new afterwords and exiting the After-info screen, you will unlock Adiaphoron.
If you haven't read Soundless, Adiaphoron will unlock after you've completed the story and gone through the other post-game content.
For those who have previously read Soundless, a single important change was made to the story to expand on the dimensions of a certain hidden room. Adiaphoron will reiterate them, so rereading the main story is not necessary.
As Final Verse is a completely new version of Soundless, saves from older versions of Soundless are not carried over.
As was previously mentioned, Final Verse runs on the latest major version of Ren'Py. While we are now offering a 32-bit version from the previous major version of Ren'Py for those who still require them, please note that these 32-bit versions have not been tested and may have strange side-effects or bugs.
Due to current engine limitations, self-voicing cannot be used in tandem with auto forward mode. Once this is properly implemented in Ren'Py, we will provide a build that allows for this.
The rollback or history hotkey option only applies to the keyboard and mouse.
We have archived the previous version of Soundless for those who still need the Russian fanpatch: Link to archives page.
Art Update Patch
The art update patch has been greenlit and will be available in early 2023.
This patch will feature the ability to switch between the old art and brand new remade art.
Due to how Soundless is presented, the Android port must be specialized for mobile phones. The Android port will release in tandem with the art update patch.
Production of the artbook will immediately follow the completion of Three Lilies and Their Ghost Stories. The artbook will be ideally released by the end of this year.
That's about everything. Thank you everyone so, so much for five years (and one week), thank you so much to anyone who donates, and I sincerely hope you enjoy!
