Charms of Lavender Blue [GxB][Short School Romance][Free]

#1 Post by waffrus » Sat Feb 28, 2015 5:30 pm

Hello! Charms of Lavender Blue is something that I was working on on-and-off since the end of November. Officially finished today! More info in the description in the link.
Link to game: http://www.newgrounds.com/portal/view/654083

Synopsis:
Nabi has always been a fairly practical sort of girl. So not even a pesky family curse was going to get in the way of a normal and successful school life. Even if it did get in the way of a little romance...

Nabi and Pierce Sprites:

My cousin and I collaborated on this, and I think it turned out pretty cute. Please check it out? Thanks! <:

If you'd like to see more of my work, I also made two dating sims last year. I'd feel bad about spamming the forum with posts though, so I thought I'd just slap on a link here:

Haha, now that this is done, maybe I can start to slowly learn how to use Ren'Py for some of my future works.

This was cute. :) Did you use Adobe Flash or something?
I only wish I could see the entire game without having to scroll up or down, haha.

I gave this a play yesterday and enjoyed it for what it was, though the story seems a little rushed as it is now. I wanted to know more about Nabi's family's curse!

You could easily expand your idea and get a more fleshed-out game out of it---something to consider for the future, perhaps.

Nice game, but a bit short. Well done and enjoyable!

Another adorable game from waffrus!
It felt a little short and I would've liked to see how they would handle a mistake with the pendants, e.g. breaking one etc. and how they would deal with that. However, the shortness is also part of the charm of being short and sweet. :)

Thanks! And yes, Adobe Flash.
...Tbh, the dimensions are also slightly too big for my laptop screen as well, oops. Oh well, haha.

Mm, the story was supposed to have a lot more middle, but I could tell that I was starting to lose momentum in making it. So I wrapped it up as is. I think I might make this one into a series as well and explore the relationships dynamics between the characters. And that curse, haha.

So yes, lots to consider for the future. <:

Thanks! Yes, the shortness of my games is a weakness of mine that I need to work on. But just gotta keep making things to get better. <:

If I get around to making a sequel(s), that will definitely be one of the issues to be addressed next.
But glad you still liked it! <:

I currently just've found out this game today and finished it today also, got all the endings, and wow, haha, so fun! :wink:
just a little bit surprised any choice doesn't matter, you'll still get a cute ending :D
i love how you make the CG, eventhough they're not colored, but they look so cute already.. :mrgreen:
oh, and that background for the front house, it's beautiful in its own way..
i like your style of art!
and also that scene of "Technical Difficulties", that's a very creative way to explain your hard time drawing a kiss scene though :lol:
Thank you for your short but cute story, although some details aren't very clear yet and keep me questioning about them (like how she had the curse and the story of their past), since we're talking about future now so it doesn't really matter, does it? :P haha
No matter what, you've made my day!! :mrgreen:

I thought fans of The Somewhere Series would enjoy that Nora cameo, haha. Happy to hear that at least one person definitely enjoyed it!
The story was a bit abrupt, though. I wrapped it up like this, with the focus on the two main characters, due to time constraints and school, oops. But hopefully I'll get some more time later to delve into more of the effects of the curse and how the relationships between the characters develop with a sequel(s?), haha.
