Hey drifters,

Jack here to talk to you about our elusive male characters. It’s taken a while but they are finally in-game, and while there are still a few kinks in the animations that need ironing out, they’re well on their way to being the equal of their female counterparts.

At the moment all these characters have the same young-looking face, but we plan to have plenty of variants to choose from when the game releases.

As stated before, all of the clothing pieces are interchangeable between gender and so I have been busy going through all of the clothing pieces and creating the male counterparts for each one. One thing that became obvious early on in this process was that since I had designed most of the clothing pieces with the female in mind a direct translation often didn’t work. With this in mind I began designing clothes for the male character, and found that these translated much better to the female character. We now have a good selection of male and female oriented clothes which are wearable by either gender with minor differences to cater for differences in body shape.

 Here are a handful of said clothing pieces being modelled by the male character.

That’s all for now.
Thanks for reading!
