It's done! Today I finished the last panel of Chapter 3. It was a big one with over 8 hours work that went into it. All in all I have worked over 300 hours on the artwork for Chapter 3. That's 100 hours more than I worked on Chapter 2 and nearly double the amount of time that I worked on Chapter 1. It was also 100 hours more than I originally expected. In the last 8 weeks I've worked many extra hours in the evenings in order to make up for it.
But I regret not a single minute of work that I put into Chapter 3. You will be able to see the effort that went into it and I'm really proud of the result. It will be very exciting for me to release the new chapter as it shows the first steps of Jonas inside the Wormworld. Together with him we'll explore fantastic places, face breakneck dangers and encounter new friends.
I have no preview images for you today as you will very soon be able to the read complete chapter. Release will be on Monday, 30th April. I'll put a countdown on the website so that you can easily find out the exact release time throughout the timezones.
Unfortunately, the release inside the Wormworld Saga App will be delayed again. This time it's not because of a software bug, though. I simply wasn't able to prepare the special content for the Collector's Edition yet. It shouldn't take me more than a week to provide it so you won't have to wait as long as the last time for the special content. What I already can say is, that the Collector's Edition will be worth the short wait. I have a lot of interesting Concept Art and work-in-progress snapshots that I will put into a huge 'Making of Chapter 3' artbook item.
Ok, still some work to do that will keep me busy over the next three days. And then you'll be welcome to the Wormworld!
