New characters! – TBB Update

Hi guys! Just a little heads up before January ends!

So hey! I designed some more extra characters for The Black Beast. They’re adorable and I had great fun making them. What do you think? Can you guess what they need help with?

Other than that, Marionette and I have narrowed down on the updated features we’d like to implement on the game, and revising the story to fit the changes.

Have a fun weekend everyone! Thanks for reading this mini update : )
