ABOUT OATH OF LOYALTY:

ABOUT UNDER HOUSE ARREST:
It happened almost 4 years ago. A tragic and murderous night that changed your life forever. As you were still a minor, you were taken away and placed into an institution to assess your mental health. Almost 4 years later, you finally get to return home. But you still question what REALLY did happen that night. Your memories are foggy, and the people around you appear mysterious and deceptive about their own recollection of events. What truly happened that night? Find out while you also romance the people closest to you in this dark comedy visual novel.

WHO ARE WE?
HSA GAMES id a 2 man team comprised of SIlk_Ari (Story, coding and design) and Hooli (renders and animations).

What does a normal development cycle look like?
A chapter usually has around 15 to 20 scenes. If you're wondering why you don't see all scenes during a development phase, well that's because some scenes are dependent on certain paths or triggers or both. For example if you decide to dismiss a particular character you will not see her scenes anymore, that doesn't mean we don't have to work on them as a different playthrough (or person) might not want to dismiss that character. See where I'm going with this?
A scene usually takes 1 day to write, correct, revise and polish. That's 15 to 20 days right there. Renders take about the same time per scene to set up, change camera angles, lighting clothing, expressions, etc. that's another 15 to 20 days. Animations are the longest bit. We usually include on average 10 animations per updated. Setting up the scene, adjusting frames, positions, angles, cameras, lighting. That's about 1 days work per animation (I'm using the BEST case scenario with a scene not too complex). Add in 7 days for coding and extra touch ups and testing. Let's use the BEST/SHORTEST scenario:
15 days writing 15 days renders 10 days animations 7 days coding/testing/corrections
that's 47 days total. Rounded up that's about 7 weeks of continuous work. Add to that the fact that we have day jobs (we wish we could do this full time, which is why we need your support!), you can see for yourself the COLOSSAL amount of work that's demanded from us.
Please join now and support us!

By pledging ANY amount once a month, you are directly supporting both this game and us, we can’t thank you enough for that.

Your contribution realizes the following:
  • Upgrade computer hardware for faster rendering times which in turn means quicker updates!
  • Recruit additional help to produce better games!
  • Allow us to work full time on game development, giving a complete investment of time and focus into producing the best games we can muster!
Goals
$408.88 of $2,000 per month
RELEASE OF PART 2 OF OATH OF LOYALTY

Reaching that goal allows us to work on both UHA and OOL.

I know this is ambitious especially since we are not close to this goal, but I hope this will motivate people to support us. We spend COUNTLESS hours for YOUR entertainment, we understand times are tough, but we need your support to continue to entertain you. It's not easy to juggle a full time job and work on these VN's.... we can't do it alone.

* Since it seems there is confusion on why we're asking this as a goal: To put it in perspective We've worked on OOL for over a year with average of 90 hours/month per person and reached a high peek of 500 a month. There are 2 people working on the project. Split, that is about $2.70 an hour which is not even half the Federal minimum wage. All this doesn't even count the cost for electricity for rendering, assets for 3d models and whatever hardware cost in case of hardware failure. The goal being asked would amount to 11 dollars an hour which is still near minimum wage in most states. It would allow us to put in the effort and time to work on 2 projects.
