Developer Ds-sans released some development information about the Kickstarted visual novel project Chemically Bonded, in development for PC.
In a post made to Twitter, the developer gives players an insight on the status of the project, which was supposed to release last year. In the statement, the developer said that Chemically Bonded is “almost complete” and then adds “all assets are complete, the script is 95% finished, and over two-thirds of the game is coded in and has been quality tested.” While this is a good sign for the game, it seems the reasons for the delay are of personal matters involving the developer who has revealed that depression is a key reason for it.
With that said, demos of the game should be available to Kickstarter backers by late May and throughout June, the game is currently in an exclusive beta test. The developer will announce a release date when they are certain that they can release when they say they will. However, in the meantime the developer writes, “I have taken up other projects, including a new one of my own, to work on during CB’s downtime.”
Chemically Bonded was funding through Kickstarter in 2017 and also surpassed a milestone for voiced dialog. The game stars two female characters, Kiyoko Ishikawa and Naomi Sato. Throughout the game, players will interact and get to know the characters as they grow closer to them. The game will feature multiple routes and endings as well as an interactive phone system for choices.
