I have just launched a patreon that is going to be a combination of personal and professional art, wips, videos and tutorials!  Whether you just like my character design, or have interest in finding out how I create art for the visual novels that I work on, you can get a good look at it all there!  You can a get red-line over your art, a custom piece of art from me, or vote on what outfits/hairstyles characters will boast in upcoming visual novels.  There may also be opportunities to vote on which ending is the cannon ending in our games.

You can also vote on who is the subject of the monthly piece of fanart.  Currently I’m working on a piece of Wendy from Gravity Falls. :3

It’s part the Art of Sita Duncan, and part the Art of Ithaqua Labs.
Hope to see you there!



Brilliant Shadows Full Release

Every Kickstarter/Backerkit backer who asked for Windows, Mac, Linux or Android versions (not Steam keys, which have already been sent out) should have received an email from with an invitation to view a Google Drive file.

That is what we’re using for the DRM Free version of the game for now, as we are still waiting to hear back from a distributor.

Inside is your Brilliant Shadows game! Install and enjoy, and let us know if you have any problems by emailing, and we’ll get it figured out!

The next job to be done is to complete the Art Book and compile the Sound Track for those tiers!  More news on those to come in the next few days. :3

Brilliant Shadows – post release update!

Greetings! Since there seems to be a lot of confusion about this, I’m going to make a little update for our Kickstarter backers.

As of right now, 11/4/15 at 11 am MT, Brilliant Shadows is ONLY available via Steam key, sent to you via email, per information from your Backerkit.
Some backers may have put Windows when what they really wanted was a Steam key.  This tier should have been called Windows(NOT STEAM) and we learned our lesson! Sorry about that.  If you would rather a Steam key, send an email to with info we can look you up with on backerkit and we’ll take care of it.

In the mean time, we are still waiting to hear back for our (NOT STEAM) DRM free copy distribution.

The Android copies of the game should be available later today, and we’ll send those copies out asap.

Besides that, we’ve gotten some truly lovely reviews over on Steam and couldn’t be happier about it!

We’ve had a few patches to update typoes, and a patch to fix an issue that was making some people crash.  Typoes will be continued to be fixed as we receive/see them.

Brilliant Shadows Launched!

It’s now up on the Steam store page, and everyone who got Steam keys should be able to play with no issues.  If you put down Windows/Linux/Mac rather than Steam key, but would prefer it be playable on steam, just send an email to and I’ll swap you from that to a Steam key.

In the mean time, we’re working on getting the outside-of-Steam games set up to finish giving everyone their copy of the game.

Soundtrack and Art book coming soon as well!
