Project Timeline

For the benefit of Patrons, Early Access supporters, or potential supporters, this project timeline is the current best estimation for all Mesmerizers Gaming content.

Q4 2021

Artifact

Work begins on Artifact

After over a year of having the idea for this game in my mind, but never actually planning to make it, I finally realized that in order to get it out of my head I will have to write it. I taught myself Twine (with help from the forums and YouTube) and began writing Artifact.

Q1 2022

Artifact

Alpha is released

on itch.io

Realizing that I’d actually done a significant amount of more work than I had originally planned to (and enjoying it more than I thought), I decided I’d hire an artist to draw 1 character and then post the game online to gauge interest. Admittedly, I didn’t actually expect anyone to purchase. I was quickly proven wrong. Now on a mission to make the game worth every penny, I begin to plan things out long-term. 

Small updates are released monthly.

Q2 2022

Mesmerizers Gaming

Official Discord is created

Originally intended to be just for Artifact, the Discord would eventually evolve into the official community chat hub for all things Mesmerizers Gaming.

Q3 2022

Artifact

Alpha is released

on Steam

I lose my job. Crushed underneath the foot of Uncle Sam, and with all the time in the world, I release a massive update that gives a huge new spark to the game, allowing me to continue working on Artifact full time. Large monthly updates become the new norm.

Mesmerizers Gaming

Website is created

Originally intended to be a simple game developer website, Mesmerizers Gaming would soon expand to be a hub for all sorts of mind & body control-related kinks, spawning live content, caption series, and more as a bonus for supportive Patrons.
