I know I promised this on Friday, so I apologize for being late, but I am excited to announce the next DCV-enabled comic currently in pre-production is Clara Ravens Episode 4 “Colombina’s Illusion”. The outline is complete and I am moving on to the story-writing phase tomorrow. This story is similar to the first episode of Clara Ravens in that it doesn’t feature her in any treasure hunting or plundering mission. Instead, this story will find our heroine attending a lavish birthday party thrown at a
Last November, we announced a little contest to help gather ideas and features you might want in a new version of the DCV (Dynamic Comic Viewer). While many of the ideas were truly outside of the scope of a simple comic viewer (many were geared towards full-motion video, which is not what this software is intended to be), many of the ideas were rather inspired, if not difficult or impossible to implement at this point.
So while I can say that very few of the ideas found their way into the new version of the DCV, which will be uploaded when Dark Rift is released this Friday, we were nonetheless pleased with everyone’s submissions and eagerness to offer up new perspectives on where the software could go in the future.
July is here, and shit is about to get HOT! We’re making extra-sure the new version of the DCV is stable on all operating systems so we set aside more time for QA than is likely necessary, but we have to allot time for finding bugs and fixing said bugs. So sorry for the wait.
Some of you have been asking for actual work from the comic, so here you go. This is a first person perspective view, which is one of the image options available in the DCV comics (along with alternative angles, x-ray view, and animation) .

I was going to write a long-winded post addressing everyone’s impatience, but I gotta be honest… I am tired, you guys. I have renders queued up and will continue working through the night. I will give no further insight into a possible release date because I really don’t want to get anyone’s hopes up again, and I really don’t know how long yet it could be. I am working on it full-time… that’s all the truth I can provide.
Enjoy the render, and keep an eye on the website and your emails for our newsletter which will announce its release. If you have not already, ensure you receive the email announcement by adding firstname.lastname@example.org to your sender safe list. Take care.
