Thank you so much! >w<

@SilverxBlue
Actually the toys are based of the plushies I've already made... so... yeah... They do exist irl. :P
I can take photos of them when I get back to Australia if you guys want. ^_^

*Update-ish*
Sooooooo....
It's a good thing I backed up all my art and writing stuff because my computer sort of just.... died this morning. o__e;
Bad thing is I lost all the coding and stuff.
Another bad thing was that I couldn't remember how I did a lot of the coding.
I did eventually work it out but it sure consumed a lot of time I could've spent on something else...

Moral of this lesson?
Back up EVERYTHING! QAQ
Ohhh! I want to see it. Please let me see it! :)
And what happened to your computer sucks, I know how you feel, man. I know how you feel... :(

Update-ish
So I decided to inform you guys of another character that is starring in this VN...
The not-so-secret character. :D
Image
You will only be able to see her point-of-view in her route only.
Well, I was originally thinking not telling anyone about her and waiting to see if anyone can get her ending...
But then I thought, "Naaaah, I think I'll at least inform them of a secret character so they know they should look for one..."

I won't be telling you anything about her and this is the only picture you are going to get... so yeah. :P
She's still sorta secret.

It's so busy *_* Talk about horror vacui... It does match the childish atmosphere of the game though, so I like it.

I love how you include your characters in the GUI and the way their personalities are carried over. It makes me love them even before playing the game.

Now that is just too cute, have you thought anymore about the mini comic idea? That would be the perfect place to do a full back story to the secret character.

Oh maaaaaaaan, oh maaaaaaaaaaaaaan! I am absolutely in love with this project! The idea is so creative and the character designs-- SO COOL. I have to say that so far my fav characters are Buttons, Rep and Lex.

The GUI is AMAAAAAAAZING! Adorable and colorful and and and wah ;-; Prefs screen also looks like it'll be full of win. And secret character intrigues me. Kinda reminds me of the character design of Nine.

I feel like drawing Buttons. *watches thread*

@Rewritten Ennui
Horror wah?
*searches on internet
Ah! I see. Yeah... I tried fitting all the toys in and this is what came out of it. >w<;

@GeneDC
Thank You! :D
I'm nearly done with it... Just adding some shadows and then gotta code it. :)

@Marcelo_Orlando
Ah right!
Yes, the secret character will also have her own mini comic. :3

@Dharma Fish
More fan art! 8D
Yep, there is definetly going to be a fan art section in the game. *w*

@Dee
Yay! The coding basicaly killed me though...
Perfect timing! I just requested a sketch on your forum. 8D

*Update-ish*
Ah yes... So what is this mini comic thing Marcelo_Orlando is talking about?
Well, Marcelo_Orlando is actually the person revising over the stories and paths for each of the characters. :)
So she sorta knows more about what's going to be in the VN and so on.

One feature of this VN will be, after getting the good ending for the appropriate character a set of Mini Comics will be unlocked. Three to be precise. One talking about the toy's past, one revolving around the toy's antics before the time the VN is set in and the last being about what happens after the character's ending. Sorta like an epilogue. :D

Also a few other features I have yet to mention would be the CG gallery (well DUH!), Fan art gallery, profile section for the characters, developer's sections sort of thing talking about the process of making the VN and so on and then finally there will also be a music gallery since I'm actually going to compose the music myself. C:
Also I'll have a Questions and Answers section. Basically where I'll give the fan base a chance to ask questions to a specific character when I'm near the completion of the game and after the demo has been released, and this extra section is for answering some of these questions. :D

I know it sounds like a lot, but I shall prevail somehow and I won't give up or drop this no matter what.
Because you guys are just that awesome... ; w ;

Mocha07734 that is music to my ears, glad to know that everything is still working smoothly. I just emailed you about Krawrk's good path, excellent work there. I don't think the extra stuff you're adding is a lot, it works to give the fans information about the characters and possible future games that they otherwise wouldn't find unless of course you put it on a site so loving those ideas.

Now as you know I like the gallery and fan art gallery idea so I just had to add to the collection. I decided to use Gem, since we talked about her before I've been thinking more about her and what her path would be like. I see potential for a very touching story there...but we can discuss that later. I decided to go the toy story path and do this in 3D, and I had a lot of fun making this image. The eyes were a challenge, they look awesome as you drew them but not so much in 3D so I tried something a bit different, hope that's OK. The face, I wasn't sure what kind of material to use because I didn't know what kind you had so I just used a faded plastic look. The background isn't much, my first thought was to send it with the background blank (plain white) but I wanted to see how it looked, plus it makes it look more like a small toy, enjoy!

God damnit...
Somewhere between bording the plane and now all of the files for the preference menu and the save/load game menu has disappeared...

Anyways, here's the sort of lineart for the preference menu...
I need to sketch the save/load game menu all over again. QAQ

Anyways... sorry, there hasn't really been a lot happening.
