I did some HARDCORE EDITING, which sadly does not make the statistics look very impressive. Haha. I also finished up expressions for Mr Moreau's sprite, and got around to colouring the sprites' clothing. (Although I'm still kind of debating whether or not the look cooler with only base colours. I'll update soon with pictures so I can
ask your thoughts on this.)
ANYWAY, thanks so much for your thoughts, guys~I've been smiling to myself for the past few minutes after reading what you wrote.
I probably shouldn't reveal myself as such a creep. LOLOLOL.

Thank you for your words of encouragement! Lately, I've been having this obsession with purple, so I've sort of it been slapping it on everything I make LOL. I've been working on this pretty consistently, so I'll have this done soon. *victory dance?*
Camille wrote:(Aww thank you, haha. <3 I have to make up for my lack of drawing ability somehow. XD) I think it's pretty natural to get attached to some of your characters more than others. It's impossible to love them all equally. The trick is not letting this show in your work. If one character/love interest is emphasized way more than the others in the story, that's usually not good. :c
As long as you pace yourself well and not get too distracted for too long, you'll definitely finish. :3
(Hah, I'm sure you're not as bad as you make yourself out to be. Graphics-making and drawing go hand-in-hand, right? *sketchy theory*) It's good to hear that I'm not some unnatural, awful creator and everyone experiences favouritism. ;P Also, I actually lol'd at the thought of having one character's path be like ULTRA EMPHASISED. I laugh at weird things OTL.
Arcanum wrote:An interesting premise! I love otome games with stories that don't revolve around the romantic interest. Solving a mystery is just as fun (and a huge YAY for dystopia) =D Also - the sprites are very, veeery pretty, and I love the soft pastel colors. What I can see from the WIP section looks great *g*
Heehee, an otome game that doesn't revolve around romance is so paradoxical, amirite. Although I have to sadly say it's not some fullblown AGATHA CHRISTIE-esque mystery haha (DYSTOPIA WOO). Thank you so much; you're too kind!! Also, ahhhh, pastel colours really? People comment about how I use pastel colours a lot BUT I DON'T DO IT ON PURPOSEEE. ;_;
And kind of unrelated, but OMG RARGH YOUR ART IS SO GORGEOUS AND YOUR COLOURING SKILLS ARE GODLY~MAKE A GAME.

Another interesting project to look forward to, the plot is simply <3. Dystopian stories FTW!
And I totally love your art style, it's so pretty and pleasing to my eyes. ^^
started stalking checked your devblog and I've been wanting to ask this. Whatever will happen to RageQQ?
C-C-COMBOBREAKER (the lulsy chain of people with red-haired avatars? Haha, sorry, I'm lame)!! Thank you for your ridiculously nice comments, FELLOW ENJOYER OF DYSTOPIAN STORIES. >:)
Oh wow, I'm glad I'm not the only one who stalks checks other peoples' devblogs, hurrhurrhurr. "rageQQ" is the utterly plotless otome game I mentioned in this thread, sadly enough. I did finish it, but I'd feel REALLY AWKWARD releasing it, haha. (But if you enjoy light and lulsy otome games like that, I have a remake of one of my old old projects in the works~ *shameless plug*)
Okay, there is not a thing I don't like about this game so far. Dystopia + mystery + an interesting-sounding plot + great character art... I'm so looking forward to this! And also, absolutely love the way you've done the first post, it looks pro.
The best of luck and I hope to see more soon. <3
Oh my god, I totally misread your comment the first time around, and thought you said "there is one thing I don't like". I saw your list and was like >n<, thinking "NOOO Y U NO LIKE ANYTHING". /fail. Then I reread it a second time and giggled to myself quietly at how lovely your comments are. Hahaha. <3

Thank you so much! (And I'm glad you like the title! I'd actually spent a pathetically long time thinking of titles before giving up and starting doing some graphics for the game. AND THEN BAM! Inspiration hit, and here we are.)
