General Update

Hello everyone! We’d like to start this post by apologizing. We should have made this update a lot earlier, but we ended up getting distracted with everything that is going on behind the scenes. Let’s get into it.

Double Homework

Firstly, Double Homework Ep 19. We’ve been saying it will be released in November 2020, and, well, we are already almost at mid November. We are putting a lot of effort into it, and the episode should be ready for release near the end of the month. We wanted to get it done a bit earlier, but we’ve been facing a few setbacks. The disruption caused by Palmer’s passing is still getting sorted out and we want to make sure the last episode meets everyone’s expectations.

Double Homework Epilogues

As with DFD, we also plan to have epilogues for DH. You’ll have a peek into the lives of your favorite characters after the events of DH’s main storyline.

We will release the four classmates’ epilogues and the epilogue for Johanna and Tamara separately. Each epilogue follows a specific ending to DH, though they aren’t locked and you can choose to play any epilogue you wish. Just bear in mind that it will probably only make sense if you get that particular ending. We will start releasing the first of the epilogues in December (most likely near the end of the month). Expect more info and a preview soon!

The Cyberpunk Game

As you might know, we had originally planned to release two games at the same time: a cyberpunk game and a noir/detective game. That’s now impossible with the loss of Palmer.

Those projects were intended to be darker, more thoughtful, and a break from the normal sorts of games that we make. Given the new circumstances, none of us are in the mood to make something somber, though we’d still like to make them in the future. We want to design the best games possible once we reorganize, something that Palmer would have been proud of.

What’s coming next after DH is finished?

Behind the scenes, we have been working on a new game that will run after DH is complete. We want the new title to be dynamic, happy and fun to help us heal and get through this difficult time.

We are designing new mechanics for the game, so it should be less linear than DH/DFD and open up the game in a way that wasn’t possible before. We’ve used HTML5 throughout this studio’s history, and if we move to a downloadable format, we will have a lot of freedom to make new features that currently aren’t possible.

We aren’t 100% sure just yet, but our next project might not be a web-based game. We might have to bite the bullet and make a downloadable game if we want to take advantage of all the new ideas we have in mind. We will have to work on platform compatibility, but we believe it’ll be worth it if that means we can make a better game.

We are going to make a new post in the near future to talk more about this specific project once we’ve shaped it better and have some prototype images to show.

For now, here is your first look at Double Homework Episode 19. We’re sure this one will get you excited! 😉

Thanks for supporting us and believing in our work.

Stay safe,
The Love-Joint Team.

Looking forward to the final chapter.

We're looking forward to you playing it!

 by Snaider in November 14, 2020

I'm very grateful for everything you have done. Keep working as a team, now more than ever. You will make Palmer and everyone who supports you proud. I believe in you. Stay safe. Stay strong. #TeamLoveJoint

And we're very grateful for the support, thank you for the kind words!

Not sure if you can reveal it at this point, but in terms of endings and epilogues it would be amazing to have Jo/Tam as a duo, as well as separate paths. Maybe I am in the minority but I do have a clear favourite out of the two and it would be fun to see how it plays out 1:1. Keep up the great work!

Dennis, the one person in this story that everybody hates and for good reason. Personally, I hope the main character throws that little weasel off a cliff or something. As long as he exists, none of the others will ever be truly safe or happy.

Do you interesting to sell your game in steam? your game is interesting. story, especially, is the most. or would you explain it to me? why?

 by Zed in November 17, 2020

Thank you for the kind words, your English is fine, no need to apologise!

 by Clinton in November 17, 2020

It be nice if at the end of Double Homework, when/if they have a credit scene they should include a special thanks to Palmer as well as pay tributes to him. (Fly high Palmer)

 by Zed in November 18, 2020

I'm sure we'll be doing something :)

 by Gary Winthorpe in November 21, 2020

 by Zed in November 21, 2020

We don't make a schedule for the free releases, stay tuned to the blog! :)

 by Barry in November 24, 2020

This is by far the best game and story in my life. I think a movie based on this game will hit the box office. I would love to support you but it's impossible with my country money. Please continue this game or make spinoff. Looking forward for new episode. Please don't make it the last one.

 by Barry in November 24, 2020

The game is fantastic. Especially story of the game. I would love to support you but it's impossible with my country money. Please continue the game because it's a great game. Looking forward to Episode 19 but please don't make it the last one.

 by Zed in November 24, 2020

Hey Barry, thank for the kind words and I'm glad you're enjoying it! Episode 19 is the final episode of DH but we're already working on our next game, hopefully you'll love it just as much!

 by Bobber in November 26, 2020

It's pretty sad to hear that about Palmer... Of course I didn't really know him, but it seems like he was very respected by the Love Joint team, and that surely brings out empathetic sadness ): Hope you guys and his family find the strengh and support you need through this heavy days.

 by Zed in November 26, 2020

He was indeed. Not just our colleague but our close friend too. Thank you for the kind words, it means a lot! ❤️️

 by Leblanc in December 3, 2020

I gotta say I love the story line... Its sad to hear about Palmer. My condolences to you his friends and family, I I didn't know him at all so all I can really say is his work is really impressive. PS : Dennis got in my nerves irl and seeing that pic really calmed me down

 by Zed in December 4, 2020

Thank you for the kind words, we're glad you enjoy the game! You're not alone there, everyone hates him :D

 by Wongl in December 15, 2020

Not trying to be rude or anything, but you guys better come up with a damn good reason for that ending of Episode 18..

 by Ricky in December 15, 2020

Play DH 19 and see :)

 by Battz in January 3, 2021

Bro, I just got back from this game now that I have free time. After installing the eps I missed I saw the announcement and seeing this really makes me sad. But I'm glad that the team will still continue to work on with the current game and to the next game(s) it will be such a letdown for me not seeing it till the end.

 by little in January 11, 2021
