We've moved!


A lot has happened since our last update and many changes have taken place.

Mainly the project lead had to step back due to life and take a break to focus on other things. In that break, data was reviewed, game design plans were tweaked and project foundations were solidified.

The project has now entered a new era. JDWasabi Studios is now known as Jade-Wasabi Studios, and Hungry Whispers shall live on under that banner.

For those interested in seeing Hungry Whispers become a thing, check out our official social media here:

Lastly, a huge thanks for the support and joining us on this eye opening journey. Here's to kicking ass and making things a reality!

ReadCon 2014!


A winner has been announced :D
Thanks for the support everyone, I hope people has had fun :)



Do check out our other social media accounts because there are freebies happening! Here's an updated picture:

Winners will be picked on the 7th July (JDWS' 3rd birthday ;D). Thanks!


We are delighted to be invited to host another panel session at this year's ReadCon!

I'll be talking about our Wasabi Adventures over the past 3 years or so and being part of an amazing community.  The indie game industry is a fascinating bubble to be a part of!

In other news, apologies for being very quiet on our production blog.  Lots of things have happened over the months and we've been busy working on a Renpy demo of Hungry Whispers so that we could test drive the script / dialogue. The plan is to translate that into Unity in future but so far, we're taking baby steps!

Feel free to ask questions on our social media! Keep an eye out on updates too, we're also doing a free raffle / lucky dip prize give-away to celebrate our 3rd birthday :).

Some progress!

Here's a visual progress dump report. You may have noticed that we've been a bit quiet on our blog accounts but it actually means that we've been busy turning our script into storyboards, audio, visual concepts and more.  Stay tuned!

Some environmental concept art is being finalised!

Some actual concept art!  I'm not an artist but it was pretty fun to start painting again. Here some bite size updates that we've been focusing on.

The overall plot has been written but is currently going through another revision. Some bits are being rewritten and tweaked out and I've a good feeling about the current version.  Some old elements are being brought back and improved while new ideas are being ironed out. Implementing them is another matter and is highly dependent on them being tested!

The art team has been focusing on solidifying the environment for the first instalment of Hungry Whispers. Much like our first demo, it starts out on a sleeper train.  After some discussion and refinement, we wanted to redesign the the backgrounds to suit the new script!

Stay tuned for more updates! It's really exciting to finally show something solid after so long! :D

Happy Chinese New Year!

Since we've missed Christmas and New Years greetings:

Gong Hei Fat Choy / Gong Xi Fa Cai 

To everyone celebrating Chinese New Year today!

The Team has been busy finalising story and environmental design concepts since we're aiming to get a demo out in July ready for ReadCon 2014. Hopefully we'll be able to make it!  The less you hear from us, the busier we are methinks!
