Motives is finally announced! It's been super awkward to dance around whether I was making a sequel to Methods after very obviously teasing a sequel at the end of Methods.
Motives was planned even before I started working on adapting the novel into a visual novel, but it was only a vague idea at that time. I was happy with just leaving Methods where it ended, if I felt it wasn't worth my time to make the sequel. But since there is so much interest in Methods, I think it's definitely worth it.
What I have planned for Motives is actually pretty difficult on every level imaginable, and I wonder if I can pull it off... but the challenge of it makes it all the more exciting!
I probably won't be able to work on it for some time, so extra content here and there — like The Illusion Murders — will have to do. The extra content is important because, although some characters from Methods will return, quite a lot of them won't. Without these extra stories, some of those characters would not have a chance to be explored further.
