The Outbreak: Quarantine Status Update #10

Posted on November 4, 2015 by Skyler

Hey everyone, just a quick update. The lighting for the photos used in Quarantine Part 1 was not done last Saturday, but it’s done now, and the desktop distributables have been updated.

As for Part 2, I’m currently writing the script, and right now I’m looking at a potential release date of Saturday, November 14th (two Saturdays from now). I should be able to meet that date, and continue to release all four parts of Quarantine every two weeks, and then re-release the full chapter (for desktop and mobile) in one combined file once it’s all done.

Lastly, Ren’Py (the software I use to make The Outbreak) recently came out with a new feature: the ability to distribute to iOS 6+, which means I can potentially release all of The Outbreak chapters on iPhone and iPad as well now. Yippee!

So if all goes well, I’ll be releasing Quarantine in its entirety by the end of the year, as well as Day Zero and First Light in the iOS app store (for free), so you can have it on your Apple device too, if you’d like, and the Quarantine ebook will be released subsequently just like the other chapters.

I’ll check in again next week when I have more news to share. Stay tuned.

Hey everyone, Part 1 of The Outbreak: Quarantine is now available to download for free on PC, Mac, and Linux. It’ll take you around 10-15 minutes to complete, and it takes off where First Light ended.

More details will be posted on the next part shortly, so stay tuned for more news on the future of the series.

The Outbreak: Quarantine Status Update #9

Posted on August 14, 2015 by Skyler

Hey everyone, since I named August 15th as a prospective release date before, I didn’t want it to pass by without releasing anything new, so I decided to get the ball rolling and post the script for the first part of Quarantine. You can read it online here.

The script currently only contains the dialogue for Part 1, so it’s a work in progress. Nothing major will change in the dialogue except for minor grammar editing and things like that, so it will be representative of the final script once it’s released later on.

So, when will the entire chapter be released? My next target goal is Halloween 2015, which is October 31, 2015. Thanks for sticking with me, and stay tuned for more updates.

The Outbreak Series Official Website V2 is Now Online

Posted on June 23, 2015 by Skyler

Hey everyone, I know it’s been a while since my last update, but I do have some news to report. Today I’m proud to announce version 2 of the The Outbreak series official website here at theoutbreakseries.com! I upgraded from my first blog-based design to something that showcases the series better, making it much easier for people to download the app when they land on the homepage. I’m still working on adding more content to the Characters page and a few other things, but it’s basically done. I hope you like it!

In other news, I’m getting back to work with Quarantine, and I will be in full swing working on it from today forward. I hate announcing release dates and not keeping them, but I can give you my current prospective release date, which is August 15, 2015.

To recap my previous statements about the series, my current plan is to release 9 (approximately) 45-minute chapters in the series, which will be like releasing a trilogy of books with each 3 chapters being one book. So the first book in the trilogy will be Day Zero, First Light, and Quarantine. After that will be the next segment and so on.

That’s all for now, stay tuned for more updates.
