2020 was a busy and productive year for us, despite all the global circumstances. We released Self-Checkout Unlimited (our first 3D game, made in Unreal), the demo for *Dead Man’s Rest*, and announced *Pale Cachexia*. Red Embrace and Your Dry Delight received translations in Russian and Italian, and Chinese, French, and Russian, respectively. We also opened a merchandise shop.

Our plans for 2021 are just as packed! We plan to release two VNs in the early part of the year: Pale Cachexia and Dead Man’s Rest. The shop will be getting some more merch, at minimum some mugs and more posters/print-type products. We’ll be working on another Argent Games visual novel (likely an LGBT VN) and recruiting for at least one new visual novel under Gallium Games. We also plan to explore Godot (or Unity, which we already have experience using) for another game not in the visual novel genre.

There will be a community event on our Discord server on the 15th: hop in for details! We’ll also be doing a game stream on the 16th on our Twitch channel!
