Elvine [Otome][Late Nano 13]

Story:

Fleeing from a deadly attack on their village, Elvine, her father and a dragonkin soldier named Lukas must flee to an abandoned castle in the woods. There they await the news of what happened to the rest of their village while Elvine herself might find something else hidden among the walls of the castle...

Characters:
Image
Lukas:
Lukas is a dragonkin soldier. Generally cheerful, he is trying to adjust to his new life at Hauptschloss after losing the use of his leg. Romanceable.







Image
Bryant:
This is Bryant! An arrogant ghost who inhabits the castle’s Throne Room. What’s his deal anyway? Romanceable.







Image
Mary:
This is Mary! Also a ghost, who inhabits the castle’s library. She hates fairy tales and is a bit sarcastic at times.







Image
Petrarch:

This is Petrarch! Elvine’s father.
He’s a bit of a stick in the mud and definitely is very opinionated about things. Actually, he’s opinionated about just about everything. He does very much love his daughter, even if this love can come out a bit strict sometimes.





For maximal FEELS I reccomend doing Lukas' route first then Bryant's



Length:

35k words! 30 CGs! 2 routes!(Bryant and Lukas) 4 endings!
~1-2 hours

Download Link:

Edit: New new link! http://www.mediafire.com/download/ce4f3 ... .3-all.zip


I did it! I finished Elvine! I released the demo of Elvine as part of the pphsjam and now here's the full version for (a late) camp Nanowrimo project! This is my first visual novel and I had a lot of fun making it. I hope you enjoy!

I had a lot of problems with the programming so the GUI isn't the best...

I just finished playing and I really reaaaaaally liked Mary.
She's great !!!

Congratulations you did a great job : I really feel pleasure playing at your game,
I also liked to know more things about the story of your game and how the characters art changed =).
There's just one moment in Lukas' story when Mary come in his room where two sentences are lasting not even 20 secondes on the screen : I had to make a screenshot to see what he was saying.

I liked your game, both story and art (especially colors in backgrounds). And the concept art section, right.
I found some moments confusing though
like wouldn't Lukas lose more blood if they actually saw his leg off? or how the humans managed to forget everything about the dragonkin in mere 20 years

Mary was definitely my favorite to write for ~ :D
Oh I know what lines you're refering to. I'll change it so that it won't atomatically go to the next line.
Thank you so much for playing~ :)

AAaahh I guess you're right. I should have put in a little more thought for the reason of Lukas' losing his leg. :\ As for the humans forgetting everything I guess you can think of it that Dragonkin were pretty sparse even before Elvine's village was attacked? All of the human literature depicted the dragonkin as giant dragons and really the only humans that had contact with the dragonkin for the past 50ish years were all hunters (who I guess didnt live in the village Elvine visited).

Sure!
To get Lukas' good ending: Ask Mary for candles and then stop to talk to Lukas when he's sitting out on the balcony.
Here's a full walkthrough for all the endings in case anyone is having any trouble getting one of them.
Lukas' Good End: Ask Mary for candles and stop to talk to Lukas
Lukas' Bad End: Ask Bryant for candles and stop to talk to Lukas
Bryant's Good End: Ask Bryant for candles and don't talk to Lukas
Bryant's Bad End: Ask Mary for candles and don't talk to Lukas

I keep having trouble with the download. It's been going for about five hours and it still hasn't been done, in fact, not even half of the file has been. As my speed usually reaches 500kb/sec without any problems, and now it keeps stagnating around 10kb/sec, the problem is most likely with the server (maybe it is more restricted in my area or something, as I don't exactly live in the most populated or known country in the world), but this almost never happens to me... Could you perhaps upload it to another? And one other question, if you don't mind me asking, how come the file's size almost reaches 400 mb? Is it the pictures or the music (the other one being more likely)?
