Re: Bells & Spires - New VN Horror/Suspense Game WIP

Wow.... so long since I've been on this thread! It's been a ride of full-time jobs! But I'm actually working back on this!

I'm going to redraw Pendleton. My god is that sprite horrible.

Re: Bells & Spires - New VN Horror/Suspense Game WIP

http://i241.photobucket.com/albums/ff93/spookyruthy/pentletonnorm_zpsoxhhb69i.png So, it's been well over a year, and I'm continuing to make slow progress. Bishop Pentleton, the stern one. I'm in the process of making a Kickstarter, as I have some lofty ambitions for this project! Am going to get s...

Re: Bells & Spires - New VN Horror/Suspense Game WIP

It's been far far far too long for an update! Despite having a full and a part-time job, I am 100% DETERMINED to finish this game off! So here's some updates with it, in the form of some of the locations! http://i241.photobucket.com/albums/ff93/spookyruthy/secret_room2_zpsa3dc5496.jpg Secret room 1/...

Re: Bells & Spires - New VN Horror/Suspense Game WIP

Long time no post! Sorry for the large hiatus on the project, I managed to get myself a full-time job! Kinda reduces the time I can spend on this :( I'm actually thinking of hiring someone to help me out time-wise with the code, so if anyone's interested, let me know! Anyway! Another (incomplete) sp...

Re: The Other World - Help!

... at this moment in time it's very difficult to make a judgement on your project. Simply put, there's little substance here. The picture you've provided needs work, which you yourself know. The plot is very thin at the moment. I can't really understand the picture's relevance to the story you've g...

Re: Need artists for a Visual Novel

Writing out entire scripts is hard without art, because I think of a lot of stuff while building it.. So they would be incomplete scripts. And the plot may be "vague", because the plot is actually in the arcs. I plan on removing Misa and Rena's arc, because they are the most pointless ones, and I n...

Re: Need artists for a Visual Novel

All the suggestions you need have already been made. It's just a case of putting together what you can and start pitching to some artists to try and get off the ground. Start making a prototype or demo to point people to - the more prep you do for this, the more you'll convince people you're serious...

Re: Need artists for a Visual Novel

You can commission individual CGs, that would be a lot cheaper than getting them to do the whole nine yards. Obviously an additional expense, but most players look forward to a beautiful in-game CG, I'd say it would be worth your while.

Re: Bells & Spires - New VN Horror/Suspense Game WIP

@LondonIvy - Thanks very much! I'm still chipping away at the project, and I hope to have a playable first chapter very soon :) Have added a lot to the script since the last post. I'm doing an unlock-mode feature, where when you play through the main arc for the first time, you 'unlock' the 'past' a...

Re: layout.imagemap_navigation

Try removing the quotation marks around "Return" - it should solve it unless you've made this one a user-specific one.

Re: Menu Variable help

Aha, please ignore this. Just worked it out - remove the quotation marks, because you're dealing with a standard statement, not a user-defined one.

Menu Variable help [SOLVED]

Hi guys, need some help. I've set variables to assess whether or not the player has asked certain questions to an in-game character. I have set these as simple defined variables which are either True or False. $ cathedral_info1_done = False $ cathedral_info2_done = False $ ghost_info1_done = False $...

Re: Bells & Spires - New VN Horror/Suspense Game WIP

Got the image maps working - woop woop! Also, realised my issue with the modules - poor linking ¬¬ Typical. Also, have sketched out Ethan. He's a red head. Just like everyone who works at the Cathedral :D http://i241.photobucket.com/albums/ff93/spookyruthy/ethanicon.jpg His more normal pose. He tend...

Re: Bells & Spires - New VN Horror/Suspense Game WIP

Thanks for the katakana! In the end, the VN genre is from Japan. I think giving it a little bit of japanese, in katakana, is a nod to the genre. Any pygame tips with the initialisation? I've got some sweet looking images, but no functional image maps on top and I'm almost 100% certain the code I've ...

Re: Bells & Spires - New VN Horror/Suspense Game WIP

Thanks a lot guys, been working quite a lot on it! Have introduced new skills, and am going to work out an image map system for use in game so you can pick items up that will help you investigate the Cathedral's secrets :D A bit like how Phoenix Wright does it, when certain events occur, items appea...
