Since i'm extremly curious and confused at the same time i will ask a couple of questions:

-IVAN is still in development....right?

-Is there any way to check the progress while the next update comes?

-who is working on the game?

sorry if i come as rude or anoying, have this shitty drawing i made as an apology

Hey, great drawing.

I am new to this forum too, but from what I can tell IVAN development is actually going really well. Idk if there is any way to check the progress, but you can check out IVAN Github.
Mostly these guys are working on IVAN development, but I don't know for sure, sorry if I am wrong.

Yes it is, and the best way to keep up is on GitHub. (You can "Watch" the project if you want notifications of every update)

There really isn't a road map or anything, check the IVAN Development subforum for discussion.

Basically there are a few members here who are working on it and if they see a feature they're interested in adding they'll add it

I Actually have a couple IVAN drawings saved on my computer, but i'm not sure where to post fanart.
Like, is the General IVAN discussion the right place???

There is a special place for fanart, it is here.
That would be great, can you draw Petrus or Richel Decos?

IVAN is in perpetual development. You can see who is doing what, and everything done since the original devs stopped working on it.

That's how it seems to work

I don't know what the plan is though. At present I just try to not die while fixing bugs!

I've never seen either of those characters in the fan art, would love to see them too.

Neat drawing

I always imagined Decos as some kind of a tall discount super villain

Nice one! Some one piece influences?
I've seen him as a somewhat respectable-looking man although a bit fishy.
Made a quick sketch of my impression of Decos. Disregard the wierd proportions and such, been quite a while since I drew anything haha

Hey, cool drawing, that's actually almost how I imagined him. You both probably should upload your drawings to the gallery.

I'd say your version has a lot more to offer when it comes to proportions and style! Art is subjective anyhow
