Every Sunrise [BxG][KN] Sequel to Ripples

#1 Post by sake-bento » Wed Nov 16, 2011 2:09 am

I realized that I rarely post WiPs these days, and I probably should. D: So here goes! This is the start of something new, or maybe just the continuation of something old. Every Sunrise (as you may have guessed from the thread title), is the sequel to Ripples. If you haven't played Ripples yet, please do. It's only ten minutes.

Every Sunrise will be a linear story that follows the story of Kuu and Koda a little more and solidifies their relationship. It takes place (about) a year after Ripples. Both of them are nearing the end of their high school lives, and trying to figure out where to go next. Kuu wants Koda to be more serious about his photography, but he thinks of it as just a hobby. Meanwhile, she's trying to decide if she should aim for culinary school in the hopes of opening a bakery, or if she'll go for something more realistic. And of course, there's the big question of whether or not they'll stay near each other or move apart.

Here's a list of things about it:
-The team working on it will be the same team that worked on Ripples. Woohoo for continuity.
-Projected length will be thirty minutes of reading/gameplay.
-The VN will be the first VN I've made to offer an optional "full voice mode." In other words, you can turn on narration for ALL the written portions, not just the spoken lines. If can't think of a reason why anyone would want this, then it's not for you and you can leave it off. ^_-
-You will get to see what Koda looks like.
-I have no idea when it will be done.
-It will be free. : D

Feel free to ask questions and stuff. I'll post updates here as I have them.

:!: -> :shock: -> :o -> :) -> :D -> :P -> :mrgreen:
That's the sequence of my face when I saw the title of the thread.

I loved Ripples! It was what introduced me to Ren'Py in the first place, so it will always share a special place in my heart. I shared it with my friend too, and she loved the message of the story. I'm sure she'll be ecstatic when she hears about this too.

Will there be more kitties?

A continuation of Ripples? That's awesome.
I enjoyed the game when I played it, and I'm sure I'll enjoy this game, too.
I've always wondered what their life would be like and how their personalities would develop.
Have you got as far as the plot?
This just made my, uh, morning :)

Oh, God! I really loved Ripples the first time I read it, and seeing the WIP thread has made my day! *o*
I'm definitely looking forward to this~ *Starts stalking.*


P.S: I can't wait to see what Koda looks like!
P.P.S: I really want that cute charm on Kuu's bag. o.o

Awww, she looks sooo cute. I also like that she does look that little bit older.

Will the game be pretty slice of lifeish? Cause I love those types, gives me warm fuzzy feelings.

I really enjoyed Ripples, so I'm sure this will be just as awesome. I'm actually really intrigued by the "full voice mode". It'll be like listening to an audiobook. *_*

Yup. First post edited with more details.

Me too. It's too cute. ;^;

Yup. Lots of slice of life and ordinary people talking about ordinary things.

Thank you! I hope we don't disappoint.

I've gotten a couple requests for full voice mode from several people, all with different (and valid) reasons. It's a lot of work getting voices done, so I decided to try it on a shorter VN first to get the hang of it.

I'm so excited for this! Ripples is still a staple of my "things to read to cheer myself up" collection. I hope this game will give some of the same fuzzy feelings that Ripples did. :D

Yay :D This looks great. Kuu's clothes are so cute, and her hair got so long.

I like the full narration idea. Who will be the voice actor for Koda? :o Has it been decided?

Ripples was the first KN I ever played, before RE:Alistair++ of course, and I loved it! I'm so glad that there'll be a continuation of it! And a face of Koda?! *win*
I wish you and the rest of the team well for the production of this sequel sake-bento! :)

That's the hope. I'm aiming for more warm feelings and motivation to shoot for your dreams.

Koda's voice actor (and the narrator) will be the one used in the Ripples update, Micah Solusod.
