Hey guys/gals how's your day? It is going to be another awesome weekend!

Remember when I mentioned that I reduced the file size during 1 of the previous open beta updates for Small Chronicles? Well I did it again…



From the initial size of 200MB, I reduced it to around 150MB by simply changing the file compression formats for the voice over audio files. If you want to know how, do check out this post by Gamua

While that is indeed a huge decrease in size, it still exceeds the 100MB allowance for downloading apps over cellular networks. So what else can be done to further decrease the total size?



By making the game's content downloadable! Moving the game's content to a server allows the game to be shipped with a much smaller footprint!



As not everyone will use the in-game help content frequently, moving it to a server and making it downloadable further reduces the game's total size!

So how much was shaved off from the game's total size?



That's almost 60MB gone! While it might not seem like a lot, it is a lot when you are downloading something with that size on your mobile device!

With that said, does that mean that Small Chronicles Chapter 1 is coming really soon?
