Yoshida Aikou's Valentine's Day - A Not So Eternal Memory

#1 Post by redeyesblackpanda » Tue Feb 14, 2012 2:34 am

Yoshida Aikou is just a simple second year in high school. She has a kind heart. That's why, this Valentine's Day, she's giving every boy in her school chocolate! Join her in her wild adventure, as told by her through her storybook!

This game is all ages and has 1,837 words.

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!
To celebrate, the Eternal Memories team is giving several goodies. This game is one of them! The story was written by the writer for Eternal Memories (me) and this game stars one of the seven heroines. The artwork was not done by an Eternal Memories artist, but by the wonderful CheeryMoya, who was able to draw the perfect style for this game. As a result of having CheeryMoya on board, you might notice some TwinTurtles...

SvenTheViking did some coding, image mapping and proofreading.

Time for a little talking to myself Q&A

Eternal Memories is BxG, right?
Yes.

Is this game made for fans of BxG, then?
This game is made for everybody.

What type of a game is this, then?
It's a lighthearted comedy.

The art looks different.
That's not a question.

Why does the art look different?
Because, Yoshida Aikou drew it.

How many IQ points does Yoshida Aikou have?
You could probably count them on one hand.

Some characters besides her make appearances, but not all of them. Why not all of them? Do you not like them?
This story's focus was Yoshida Aikou. I only used characters that I had to use to make this game work. This had nothing to do with favoritism. In fact, my favorite character does not appear in this KN...

Can I keep asking questions?
I'd rather you not.

Why?
Shut up. This post is getting long...

Are you crazy or something?
...

What's with you talking to yourself?

This, the other game on which I totally did not work, along with Spartan's game, and thus on which am entirely unbiased, is amazing, and you should all play it. Twice. And love the art.

The alternate links are direct downloads-- 4shared can be entirely avoided if you don't care to use it, are annoyed by it, or can't use it because some network administrator hates it. No ads, either.

Good story, Panda... The artwork does it great justice.
I'm going to get off my soap-box now, and let you get back to your day.

Ahahaha, oh my gosh, Shi-kun startled me at first with those CAPS xDDD I can imagine him talking in a very loud whisper or something similar.

Panda, you certainly did a great job of characterisation with Sven's help C:
I really, really enjoyed reading this, it made me laugh a lot xDD So many funny things that I want to mention I don't even know where to start.
Just... all of the character interactions, and them turtles too.
And the scene with the bunny outfit, oh gosh Panda. W-whyyyyyyy.

...Seeing her mother, I think we know where she got her personality from, ey? :mrgreen:

I actually thought that Aikou was a grade-schooler (and that we were in her past or something) until the mention of Kanetsu and Tanako. Her mentality and attitude certainly reflected that xDD
Tanako is also a very cool badass C:

The only complaint I would have is that the ending is very abrupt, and because there was a transition where the screen actually went black for a bit (unless my computer was just lagging? :shock: ), I was a bit confused and surprised when I was brought back to the menu screen. Only a minor complaint though C:


jkah;ghfagjg Moya, thank you so, so much for drawing this. Your suffering was not in vain 8)

Just tried this, and I have to say...

I just spent the best fifteen minutes of my life.

And also, I was feeling sick and this awesome KN magically made me feel better. To all the people who worked on this... I just wanted to say I love you. o_o

To all those who haven't tried this yet, go check it out. You won't regret it! :)

I don't think it's only your computer. That happens to me, too. ^^;

I wuv you too <3 Indeed, panda's writing and my fantastic "art" make a wonderful cure for any ailments you may have. The heartwarming story, the lively characters, and the unique art style all contribute to its overall magical-ness *_*

Oh, and here's a fun game: spot all the Twin Turtles in each scene! They usually like to hang low on the screen, but sometimes they'll be in plain sight. You'll often find their likeliness on walls too since everyone loves turtles and likes to draw them everywhere. First person to find all the turtles and tells me gets cookies and milk :3
Why hasn't anyone mentioned the birds and the bees?

The part with the maid/bunny outfit was like WTF for me xD;;; Also, why would you make someone with bunny ears do a cat pose? And then at first I thought Tanako wanted to give Shi-kun the chocolate because she liked ...him? *U*;;
I don't even know anymore, I played this late at night OTL But I'm glad Kansetsu is such an aniki for Yoshida xD Great little KN. Good for procrastinating on papers '''OTL

Besides the turtles, my other favorite thing in the art was the random dudes. BEST HAIRSTYLES EVER.

I loved the story. It's very funny and the artwork fits it perfectly. The smiley sun is hilarious.

I had a problem extracting the file to the desktop (where it was downloaded to) with WinRar, because of long directory paths (exceeded 255 charaters). It worked after I moved the file to the root (c:\). Renaming the project "Yoshida Aikou's Valentine's Day - A Not So Eternal Memory" to something shorter would help.

To make the font more readable, I suggest you add drop_shadow - http://www.renpy.org/wiki/renpy/doc/coo ... yling_Text

I'm thinking more like 100, with a somewhat degraded socio-emotional level.

Thanks for the kind words, everyone. ^^
I put up some Mediafire links too, for those who hate 4Shared with a burning passion...

Played and enjoyed. Graphics cute and it was caught my eyes when selecting visual novels to download. On the second play noticed the two turtles. Downloading the one with Alt Font for my third play. A must play for everyone. Good work Eternal Memories team.
