episode 1 is written! :lol:
I've been revising it the last few days. The pacing is feeling off to me. Maybe it's just because it hasn't been programmed yet, so I don't know what kind of pauses there will be, but things are feeling too fast. I think some of the scenes were too short, so I've been expanding them.

Buuut I'm also considering something else.....

Can you tell I've been watching too many My Candy Love playthroughs?

I think adding gameplay could help the pacing, but I'm not sure if I'll do it or not. Episode 1 wasn't written with this kind of interactivity in mind, so it might feel incongruent. On the other hand, I DO love point & click mechanics, and I DO want some more experience making them, and it would be a lot of fun... I can't decide :cry: Weirdly, I think my subconscious was already drawing the backgrounds as if the game would work like this..?

But I know I need to work on drawing CGs and redrawing menus, so I'll focus on that for now haha. I'll try to show you some CG sketches soon!!

((I've still been posting things on Tumblr as well, like I recently shared a gif of a "talking animation" I tested out with Aloysius hahah :wink: ))

Hey hey I'm working on CGs!
I'm planning on doing 20+ for episode 1. Some of them full-screen illustrations, some of them just smaller pictures of items and stuff
Image
I'm also going to animate some of them (by "animate" I mean, puppet tool in After Effects. Like the Live2D effect. No impressive frame-by-frame things haha). I already animated one with Frances and it was super fun! But now I'm starting to feel the burn out. I don't want to write or draw or do anything at all the past few days. Even playing a video game sounds like too much effort haha.

Also, I'm still figuring out if I'll add gameplay or not. I had a dream where someone told me I shouldn't. But then I also had a dream that Malca took a ski lift up to a castle and met a prince, who turned out to be Graham's twin. So maybe I shouldn't listen to my dreams :lol:

Hey hey sorry for the absence. I got busy in the summer, but I have also just been working quietly

I recently programmed episode 1, which means it's completely finished now
Image
I'm super psyched to write & work on episode 2!

And did you notice that "hint" button?
It's a little feature I put in for when you have to make a choice:

just hover over it and it will tell you exactly what you're getting into 8) Best of both worlds?

I'll keep working quietly now, although I'll probably continue sharing little drawings and stuff on tumblr :D

I'm absolutely enamored with your rendering. ( That toucan!! :0 ) You have such a lovely sense of color and lighting, and I've been having a great time just looking all your pictures over and getting lost in the ambiance. Everything feels so warm. Your style also gives me vague Motorcity vibes? Very angular early 2010s cartoon look. Suits a comedy pretty well, I think.

Wishing you the best of luck and continued motivation!

Oh thank you so much :cry: Your words are so inspiring & kind
I always dream of being able to draw cartoons that look like TV, so to hear that comparison makes me super happy haha! Motorcity looks so cool, I love the linework especially
I'm so glad you like the ambience! The assets went through a lot of color adjustments to look right :lol: Hopefully the other elements in the game will be good too!
