City of Hunger is the name of the SSSS SciFi AU game that was announced back in November*. There's a little bit more information about it now. Since the name is now officially announced, consider this a mod note that anything relating to the game should use the City of Hunger tag from now on.

A few details about CoH:
✻ The story is set on a faraway icy planet.
✻It will primarily be story-based, but there will be possibilities to explore the wider world.
✻ No prior knowledge of SSSS will be necessary to enjoy it; the characters are the same, but this is an entirely new take on them.
✻PC-only release (as of current plans)*

✻ On the subject of whether the game will have magic:

"No" in the traditional way, but "yes" in a mysterious-alien-forces way, and a little bit in an advanced-not-100%-realistic-technology way. So people won't be casting spells, no.

✻ Current plans are to possibly include a romance option in the relationship stats:

I'm thinking there'll be some romantic options too. The whole relationship funtionality is still in a planning stage so I'm not 100% sure on how I want it to work in relation to the story progress and such, but I do have... thoughts. And ideas. [...] it'll be a completely optional path for people who do want that. There won't be a bonus for choosing a romantic option over just building friendships, just a slight story flavour difference.*

For more information, the devlog for City of Hunger can be found over at Hummingfluff; go there for concept art, game progress, and other details. For concept art previews and blog update notifications, you can follow @hummingfluff on Twitter.

Also, according to the February 15th devlog entry, Reynir might have short hair in this game. (Very important information, of course!) I don't know about you all, but the concept art and the game previews have me tentatively interested.

Minna has made two announcements in one blog post! Which you can read over here.

Change in schedule:

I'm permanently switching over to a 4 pages a week update schedule for the comic from the current 5... so the comic will update as regular on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from now on.

This change is partly because the page-per-weekday pace was difficult to keep up. But it's also because of the second announcement, which is....

A SSSS SciFi AU Visual Novel:

Minna discussed this briefly on twitter recently, and it looks as if she's going to actually go through with working on it!

No other details about what the story will be yet, unfortunately, but I'm sure that will come with time.

Series of tweets from Minna indicate that a sci fi AU visual novel could potentially be in the works:

I've been dreaming of making an science fiction-y AU visual novel or something with the main cast for the longest time. Just dreaming.

But after the first half of this year I've started to finally feel like my life has settled down enough that I could actually, maybe,do it.

As a side project alongside the main comic itself. Anyway, today I was thinking about it a lot and drew a slightly cyberpunkish Lalli.

So yeah, a interactive visual novel (or whatever the comic version of that would be called) might be a project I'll try my hand at soon.

Tweets: ****

It seems like the idea is kind of up in the air, still a vague maybe, but I find it intriguing nonetheless.

One of the best ways to survive a SSSS chapter break is to re-read the comic!

How it works: Every few days, a separate subthread will be posted to this entry for each chapter. Read the chapter, post your thoughts! Let's survive this chapter break together.

For discussion unrelated to the re-read, head over to the Discussion Post.

So that tags will be immediately available when someone needs to use them, and so that they will be visible as options in the tag page even if they are not used, I've filled this post up with every character & pairing tag that I could think of.

Note: Pairing tags are arranged alphabetically by first name.

If you need one that isn't here, please leave a request here or in the Mod Contact Box, and the tag will be created for you.
