Gap Year is a tie-in to the Outliers and Outsiders series of games, filling the gap between At The Break Of Dawn and The Crystal Tower. It can be considered a miniseries of illustrated novellas, or one illustrated novella in three parts, and the first part is available now. It’s a story of the magic and the mundane, of magical girls and global pandemics, of a lot of things… but I’ll let it speak for itself.
This project has been a long time coming, with a somewhat convoluted development process. I’ve had the idea of something to fill in that gap since The Crystal Tower was released, and I’ve had a vague idea of what I wanted to put in it for almost as long, but it took years to actually get to the project, and I switched mediums several times before settling on an illustrated novella. Finishing the first part took longer than expected, although that was partially because I got occupied with other projects. I’m not promising a timeline for the next two parts, although I’m hoping to get at least part 2 finished this year.
