Welcome to the Q3 Quarterly Recap! This quarter we'll be looking back over the months of July, August and September!
Very early in the quarter, on July 6, we announced a re-vamp of the trixel+ service! It's no coincidence that this took place only a week after our trixel+ feedback survey. We want to show our trixel+ supporters just how appreciative and grateful we are, so we took your feedback seriously.
This new update included:
...all this, plus all previous features, for the same price of $2 per month - and this was just the beginning! Although not announced at this time, the survey also directly influenced the development of The Grandiose Tales of Cpt. Stuffy, which we will discuss in more detail later!
We're constantly working to improve trixel+. If you have any feedback, we'd love to hear it!
Trixel Creative Community Survey - July 2021
I guess it's out of the bag... we really like surveys. This survey was published with the aim of helping us to develop a better understanding of everyone on our social platforms, hear about our performance and test potential future ideas. We think this survey was successful, and has helped us to make further changes to our Discord and website platforms.
Updates to Discord & Trixel Creative Website
We listened to your feedback. It was annoying to get pinged in the Discord server for every announcement and Question of the Day, so we changed it. General announcements now only tag the @Announcements role, Question of the Days tag the @QOTD role, and trixel+ announcements automatically tag trixel+ members.
Although automatically assigned to everyone, users can opt-out of the @Announcements and @QOTD roles by heading over to the #welcome channel and reacting appropriately to the 'Remove a Server Role' message.
Around this time we also worked on the Trixel Creative website, with the aim of making it more accessible for those with visual impairments. This is an aspect that we are still learning and working on, and would appreciate any advice you may be able to lend.
Each month of the quarter got an exclusive trixel+ Restitched: Dev Diary.
Developer Diaries offer an inside look into the development and creative process behind Restitched. If you're a member of trixel+, why not check them out now?

The Grandiose Tales of Cpt. Stuffy
Potentially the biggest reveal of the quarter was the announcement of our new comic series The Grandiose Tales of Cpt. Stuffy. As stated earlier, development properly started on this feature following the trixel+ survey on July 6. However, there had been rumblings of a Restitched comic for many months beforehand!
Our team, especially lead writer Billy Anderson, artist Ari Muños Marín and co-writer Carter Newman, are so excited to finally be able to share the first page of The Grandiose Tales of Cpt. Stuffy next month with you. So much love and care has gone into this feature, and we hope you will enjoy it.
Trixel Creative Wiki
Did you know we have a wiki? You can find it over at trixelcreative.fandom.com. It goes over everything related to Trixel Creative - our projects, our team, our services, and more - in full detail.
Recently efforts have been made to streamline this wiki. Please note that anyone can edit the wiki, so if you find something wrong - feel free to edit!
Restitched Steam Page Now Available!
We can announce that we have finally submitted the public Steam page for Restitched to Steam for approval! The team has been working so very hard in order to compile this latest build, and we cannot be prouder of them all.
Keep your eyes peeled for even more exciting Restitched updates!
Restitched Roadmap - Heading into Q4
The Restitched roadmap receives its final 2021 update as we head into the last quarter of the year. Look forward to even more community opportunities, surprises, and exclusive content from us as we close out 2021 with a bang!
...and that's all for this Quarterly Recap!
Blimey, that's a lot of content for three months! If all goes to plan, the final quarter of 2021 is going to be phenomenal. We can't wait to take you along for the ride! See you in January '22!
October 2021 marks the first anniversary of trixel+ - can you believe it?
In just one year, we've published almost 50 pieces of content through trixel+, and we cannot stress how grateful we are to our community. In order to celebrate our subscribers (and one year of trixel+) we will be posting some extra-special content this October.
Limited trixel+ Tiers
The main star of the show will be our weekly tiers. Every Sunday in October, we will be posting a new, limited trixel+ tier that will only last for a week. These tiers will include all trixel+ benefits, plus a piece of Trixel Creative or Restitched merchandise, but will cost more than our standard tier.
Plus, good news! If you're already paying for the $2 trixel+ tier, you can change to the limited tier without being charged for your $2 again! For example, to upgrade to a $2.50 tier (as the week 1 tier will cost), you'll only have to pay 50¢!
After the week is over, the tier will be unpublished, and a new one will take its place. Please be sure to transfer to regular trixel+ afterwards, otherwise you will continue paying your pledge without any trixel+ benefits. We will be sure to remind all subscribers of this.
In addition to a brand-new Restitched: Dev Diary this month, along with the first instalment of The Grandiose Tales of Cpt. Stuffy, Restitched Stamp Preview #4, a Community Poll, an exclusive anniversary wallpaper, and November's next month in trixel+, we'll also be posting some extra content!
This means there will actually be two pages of The Grandiose Tales of Cpt. Stuffy! What a way to kick off the launch of our brand-new comic series - by giving you two pages instead of one!
That isn't the only two-for-one this month however, as we'll also be releasing a second Restitched Stamp Preview!
This means, in just one month, trixel+ subscribers will be receiving eight pieces of amazing content!
Don't worry, we've not forgotten about you non-subscribers! When we release the second page of The Grandiose Tales of Cpt. Stuffy this month, we'll be making the first page free to all! This will be posted on all of our socials - Twitter, Instagram, Discord, YouTube, and more!
Not only that, but remember the Community Poll that we mentioned? The results of that poll will decide a Restitched: Dev Diary to become free to the public this month!
A version of the trixel+ anniversary art will also be a completely free wallpaper for non-subscribers also!
We'll be offering limited edition trixel+ anniversary merchandise on our stores, so keep your eyes peeled for future announcements!
...and there we go!
So there we are - what do you think? We're gonna be celebrating the trixel+ anniversary in style:
and we can't wait to take you along for the ride!
