August 2021: Publisher!!

Hi! :D I have some EXCITING NEWS to share! 🎉 Mail Time is now being published by Freedom Games (https://freedom.gg)!!! For those of you who may not know, a publisher not only provides funding for developing the game, but also takes care of a lot of the business and marketing side of releasing a game. They’ll take care of potential console releases (👀 hopefully) and manage all kinds of stuff from the store pages to marketing and advertising the game, events, PR, and a lot more. All this basically just means I can focus more on making the game and interacting with you while being able to pay rent!! 💛


Also, if you’re worried about the vision for the game being ruined FEAR NOT!! Freedom has good vibes and is only helping me make the game better, I still have a lot of control and can put weird stuff in the game all I want :)) I chose Freedom as my publisher precisely because they’re experienced in the things I’m not (oh god marketing and business stuff) while still being totally chill in allowing me to do my thing! I maintain complete creative and development freedom, and Freedom (heh) says they wouldn’t have it any other way.

Now to get into some updates as to what all I’ve been working on lately for Mail Time! A lot of what I’ve been working on has been about player customization.

I started off with adding customization for the player’s backpack!

There’s 6 total backpacks with 6 colors each so LOTS of options! My personal favourite is the acorn but honestly it’s hard to pick!



Next I finished adding in all of the different hairstyles and colors! There’s 6 different hairstyles and colors that you can pick from, 2 of which were designed in collaboration with the Discord community 🥰

With these hairstyles you can also customize your gender representations to play as a ‘girl, ‘boy’ or just a person. Whatever is your vibe 💛



There's also other things like skin tone and outfit colour that were already present:




I’m really excited to be able to offer player customization so you can play how you want! It’s hard because it’s a lot of work and just me to offer a lot of options so I hope with all of this you can find something you’re excited about! :) That's it for now but I'll update every other month! :) If you want more regular updates or just want to meet the rest of the community come hang out on Discord: discord.gg/mailtime
