I'm a little bit late for NaNoRenO...
I'm still new here so I didnt even know what this was n_n;

My current (and first project) is ending up being really really big @_@, and I was regretting not starting by making a smaller game first...

NaNoRenO seems like the perfect way for me to make a small game and get more confident with my skills! (plus I'm waiting for materials from the writer of my other game...)

The game is called "Waiting With You", the concept, story, setting and art for the game are all being kept very simple (so that I'll finish in time!)

The story is about a boy and a girl waiting at the train station together each day, passing the time and becoming close.

Thats it! The entire game will take place at the train station, and there are only two characters.
clairehappy.png
Girl:Claire
age:15
An athletic tomboy, Claire is a carefree girl who loves to make jokes. Claire freely says anything on her mind, and tends to ignore things that she doesn't like.

Boy:Bright
age:16
A busy boy who is always running to get something done. Hes not very smart, and studies very hard to keep his grades up. Hes cautious and always try to say the right thing, but he makes mistakes often.

I started on Saturday, and I already have a lot prepared and done for the game

The sprites are 100% done (easy, as there were only two...)
Backgrounds 0% (this will be easy...tomorrow I will go take pictures at the train station after work)
CGS 0% (these will be drawn once the rest of the game is ready)
music is 100% done (is using free music, or music meant for another project ok for nanoreno?)
script/code 10% (first day is done)

If anyone is willing to help with editing/proofreading/playtesting/second opinions I'd really appreciate it =3

Thank you, I'd be thrilled if you'd be a beta tester for me~

I can always use any help I can get...especially from people who are way more experienced at using this program then me.

julie: thank you for the offer! I'll try to get the basic stuff finished really soon so you guys can read over it for me =3

They don't wait for very long, in the first day its about 20-30 minutes (although it probably wont take that long to read n_n; its only 1,850 words)

I'd be willing to test-play and proofread stuff. I love the art style, and the concept is simple and sweet.

Oh, how could I miss this?
The story is simple but that's for better, right? And the characters are very cute.
Can't wait for this to come out! =D

progress update!

The writing and "beta" version o the game are almost complete!
I've finished the game to the first possible ending, and the last two just need a bit more work.
currently the game is at 7700 words, and im expecting the finished beta to be about 10,000 words total, or more depending on if i do epilogues, and how in depth they might be.

I'm going to try and get this done by the end of the day, and post the beta for others to check.
lots of things are still missing, and even though this game will definitely be "finished" by the end of march as a nanoreno game, I think that I'll continue to improove the game during april to make it more of a "polished" game, with more CGs, a better menu,ect ect.

So here is the Beta.....very LATE >_<;;;

I probably doesn't really leave much time for everything to be fixed before the end of march, so i guess this wont be a nanoreno afterall >_<

Please dont DL if you want to play the actual game...only if you want to help me out...because currently its still a beta, and very messy. It shouldn't take too much longer for a finished version to be released.

any suggestions for the game would be welcome, currently i still plan to add more bgs...and have them transition a bit so it flows better...also i have more music, but i just kept using the same song over and over..so any tips on when you think might be a good place for a music change, or type of music....anything would be appreciated!

I want to draw more CGS....and the game needs a fixed menu as well>_<......

please put your suggestions in spoilers tags =3 anyone who helps will be in the credits of course!

oh! please let me know how long it takes you to get all 3 endings! to word count is about 11,000 words, but i dont know how long that takes..>_<;

Just a note, you might want to upload the demo elsewhere because not everyone has a Windows Live account, and I don't think you can download the demo without one. I have an account so I'm downloading it, but just thought I'd mention that. c:

Edit: I believe you can make it an attachment to a post in this thread.
