It’s been a long while since we’ve posted an official update (over two years, to be exact) – a fact that many of you wonderful Regency Lovers have pointed out (sorry!). We are so incredibly grateful for and humbled by the amount of emails, messages, comments, tweets, and other words of support we have received over the past few years, and are continually surprised when someone writes to us about discovering Regency Love, a game we released almost 5 years ago. Your kindness and occasional giddiness about the game give us so many warm and fuzzies!
Since we have received so many questions about the status of Regency Love game updates and the progress of the Sutton novel, and since you have all been so amazingly patient with us, we wanted to make a post to clarify where we are right now.
Firstly, Regency Love itself: Our group is currently on an indefinite hiatus when it comes to producing any additional in-game content, but our developer Melody is working to resolve any bugs or issues that have been flagged. However, the three of us have so many more stories we wish to tell, and we hope that we’ll be able to return to the game when our personal and professional lives allow for it in the future. We honestly don’t know how long that will take (though our writer Samantha jokes that by the time we’re ready, we may have to make Mama the new protagonist). In any case, we will definitely let you know if there is any news to share, whether this be in a year or ten!
Secondly, the Sutton spin-off novel: In short, it is still in the works. Since this is primarily Samantha’s personal project, she has been taking her time with the writing, redrafting, and re-redrafting. The current file she’s working on is called ‘Sutton-2.2.docx’, and has 127,644 words. This has been a difficult draft since there is so much to discard and to re-write, but she does intend to finish and publish it one day. She will occasionally post progress updates on Instagram and Twitter (with #SuttonNovel), but, as with the main game, we will share any noteworthy news when available.
Once again, thank you for your continued patience and support. We know there isn’t any ‘new’ news in this post, but we hope Lord Sutton’s striking features might make up for it!
Yours in mutual Lord Sutton appreciation,
Jenny, Melody, and Samantha
