Hello everyone, it's time for a quick update on AW development :D
Besty got into the catnip again and was posting all sorts of depraved things on the Discord server, so I thought I'd throw a little hand-holding into the post image. And since it probably isn't obvious, the title is a reference to a classic Ray Bradbury novel.
I don't have a ton to report when it comes to development, mostly because I'm still working on the main storyline stuff and I don't want to spoil anything. Besty has nearly finished expanding the number of date spots and the number of actions at each spot. The most interesting will probably be the addition of sexy actions that can be performed at date locations to spice things up a bit. Besty will be moving on to start coding clothing into the sex scenes. Once I get to a good stopping point with the main story, I'll also be moving over to work more on the sex scenes up until release.

Because it's been a while, I thought I'd go ahead and share an update on my wife. For those unaware, she has colorectal cancer. We are pretty sure that it's stage three, but we won't really know the details--such as her chances of survival--until after the surgery. So far though her response to radiation therapy has been encouraging, and they've gotten better at treating this type of cancer over the years.
We've had some time to adjust, and in the end, you just have to keep moving forward.
She's going to be leaving next week for Hawaii, where she'll be having surgery. Sadly the circumstances mean that it's not possible for me to travel with her. It's a four-week trip, and with my day job and the need to take care of the kids, I'll be staying on Guam. We've got family flying into Hawaii to be with her so she won't be alone, and the surgery itself is pretty safe as far as major surgery goes.
And since I'll be stuck at my day job, not much is going to change in the near future as far as AW development is concerned, so you don't need to worry about that. I'm lucky to have a job that doesn't have a lot of work unless something goes wrong. I maintain things so they don't break too badly all that often, so I usually get about 80% of my dev work done while at my 'day job'. So... even though It'll be hectic the next month or so, it probably won't have too big of an effect on AW.
Though... when things really go wrong at work, it can be a nightmare. I'm reminded of a certain incident where the employee from a local telecom accidentally (I hope) unplugged a cat5e cable in the modem/router area of our server room... and then decided to plug it back in... to a random port.
Anyways, thanks for all your kind words and support since this whole cancer thing started back in November. I don't always know what to say, but I do appreciate the sentiment. And of course, thanks for all your support of AW. It's really meant a lot to me to have this goal and community in my life. With everything going on lately, it's been really comforting to be able to work toward a better Appletree ;)
Thanks for reading, I'd better get back to work! :D
