Paper Guitar [Childhood-Nostalgia VN] [Indie/Free-Love]

#1 Post by Ekamu » Mon Sep 09, 2013 5:33 am

PAPER GUITAR
title.png
Paper Guitar is a romance about a fret-boy named Freddy Fretstop and his love, Watts, together they find love and adventure in the small hamlet town of Paper Guitarra, home to few from Lectro and Cithara. With characters inspired from the most obscure of everyday things like light switches and guitar necks, their is a talking pick too who is out to rock the world!
The music is original and made from an old small guitar I had made for me when I was about 7-8 years old, it only has 4 strings now that are very decayed, I tuned her by ear to C#-G#-Eb-G# and jammed for a day straight which resulted in a home-brew mix-tape I made entitled 4 Strings and Scratching Nostalgia. The entire mixtape is intuitive, raw and experimental. I can not re-create the music exactly as I did because it was unrehearsed and created from pure scratching nostalgia.

I Hope you will enjoy the nostalgic and semi-de-tuned (raw & home-brew) experience as much as I did in making it!

It is only about 10-15 minutes. Its a short visual novel but it was made

You can listen to a sample of the mixtape-album 4 Strings and Scratching Nostalgia on Sound Cload:

Here are a few songs off the album:

Star(king)Dom And String Soup Pasta

Nostalgia Part 1

Stradus and Pencella

They are some exclusive songs that never made it to the game and they are some songs that are un-cut with interesting improvisations towards the middle and end like Stradus and Pencella and Nostalgia Part 1. My personal favourite song off the album is Star(king)Dom and String Soup Pasta.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The Download has been changed. I replaced the wav format sound with mp3 so the file is much smaller and easy to download. the VN is still exactly the same for those who already downloaded it but for those who did not it is a much smaller file now.

This game has really caught my eye. I'll download this game right now, and tell you what i think. (Reminds me of that Paper Child craze that hit the internet somewhere around 08-09)

The game was very cute, the characters were surreal too specially "Tonics Mother",
She was like a hand holding a rock?
(I loved it)
I also got the pun Gui & Tar together makes "Guitar" and most of the songs or song is played by a guitar
.
The quote at the end "Please listen for longer, until this tune will linger in your heart forever, was kinda iconic in a way, it was like they was in their own little world
I love music-type games and ones where characters talk or either just have their own unique music. I've just been playing Harmoknight on the 3DS, so music type games are really quite amusing to me.

My first impresson was the very cute arts, so i've downloaded and played it through :)
And i found it very incredible that you made the musics with a 4-string guitar :shock: it was very great, very lighty, i can listen to them all day long :D
the story was cuter than i thought, short and very very cute, you made it excellent as the first time my friend :D

Thanks a lot guys, I'm really encouraged and happy to see that it reached an audience that appreciates it and that you could enjoy the short story. (^_^)
As for the music a lot of it just sort of came out, in other-words I have no idea what I was doing consciously, just playing by ear, and listening for some sort of innocence/simplistic charm.

Quick questions: About how long is gameplay? And are there multiple endings?
