Monthly Archives: March 2015


Fred made some good progress on a number of fronts these past few weeks, including the Visual Novel. But since he has so many projects going at once, he’s spread a little thin.


We made some progress on the Visual Novel. Fred went back and cleaned up a number of missing Largo and Tsubasa drawings. Then he did some of the backgrounds and other artwork for the bookstore scene where we first meet Yuki, Asako, and Mami. The purple squares you see are our reminder that some character images need checked yet. They will be removed once Fred has given them the final seal of approval.


Shadow took some of Fred’s drawings and made a nice little animation in Renpy for when Piro knocks over the table of books.

Warmth ep1p4

Fred made a lot of progress on Warmth. He got some good final coloring done, the dialogue laid in, and a synopsis finished for submission. Things aren’t finalized yet, but the publisher he’s talking to sounds very happy with it.

CharacterDev Colored

Fred continued work on his character development sketches. He did Ayanokouji and started Ninamori, to finish off Junko’s posse of friends. Then he started coloring them, which looks very nice. These should be up for sale in the Megagear store soon.


Chemi’s latest Endgames novel Dire Water was released a couple of weeks ago. This one features Sunay, who is Mugi’s Endgames character. If you haven’t picked it up yet, you can buy it in paperback, or for the Kindle or Nook.

Now that Warmth is in a good place for the moment, Fred’s plan over the next few weeks is to concentrate on the Visual Novel, the between-chapters MegaTokyo omake, and some more artwork for the Megagear store. You can watch a lot of this work live as it happens by tuning in to Fred’s Twitch livedraws.

The Visual Novel is coming along, but very slowly. For the second anniversary of the Kickstarter in July, we’re planning to release a preview of what we have so far, so y’all can get a good sense of how the game is looking.  I think you are going to really like it. Thank you for your support and for your patience.

Dire Water

Fred made decent progress in the last few weeks on all the various projects he’s trying to get done at the same time, including some nice work on the visual novel.


One of the big things he finished was the cover to Chemi’s new Megatokyo Endgames novel Dire Water, which will be available in paperback, Kindle, and Nook on March 13. This book focuses on Sunay, who is Mugi’s Endgames character. Give it a try, I really enjoyed the last one.


Fred also finished the artwork for the first 8 pages of the reboot of Warmth and started some coloring work. He still needs to finish the coloring and lay in the dialog, but it’s looking pretty good.


Fred got back to work on the visual novel, cranking out some backgrounds. Above you can see two from Piro’s wanderings in Roppongi.


Fred also continued his series of character development sketches. This is Tounomoto (aka poofy-pigtail girl). She’s one of Junko’s posse and has been seen a number of times in Megatokyo, though not yet named in-comic. Fred’s artwork often drives his story ideas, and he says he has a good story go with this sketch as well.


And finally, a reminder that there are a number of one-of-a-kind original arts available in the Megagear store. There are still some pretty iconic scenes left, and this is a great way to help support MT.
