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:
New golden design scheme for that 'premium' feel
New Restitched Stamp reveals - one month earlier than non-subscribers!
Exclusive monthly wallpapers
Priority access to game nights on the Trixel Creative Discord
'Next Month in Trixel+' monthly feature
...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.
July: Key Art
August: Restitching Stuffy
September: The Craftbook
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 and artist Ari Muños Marín, 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!
