Crimson Rafflesia [Psych|Thriller|GxB/BxG] Demo - 26 Sep

#1 Post by Coren » Tue Jun 12, 2012 12:34 pm

The Full Demo is now up! For those who have played demo 0.5, please download the full demo! This new one is around 7 times longer than the old one, and explains a lot more. There's a reason why the old one was a preliminary demo, after all.

A Little Note:
When you finish playing the game, I'd really appreciate if you could answer a few simple questions so I can make sure to shift the full game into the right direction. :) Thanks!
1. What do you think of the game so far?
2. Who are generally your favourite characters, and why?
3. What are some questions you want answered the most in the full game?
4. What do you predict are answers to these questions?
5. Which characters do you find the most curious or interesting? (Can overlap with #1)
6. What do you generally think of the story so far?
7. What particular scene(s) did you like in the demo?
8. ... Pairings/Ships, do you have any?
9. TAKE A RANDOM SCREENSHOT! :)

Features:
- Original Theme Song by Ziassan
- 22 CGs (Scene Artwork) excluding variations (with variations would be 60+)
- People not monologuing as much
- 50,000+ words (as compared to Demo 0.5's 8,000 words)
- It took 3 hours for me to playtest it and I didn't stop to fix bugs or anything, so it's probably that long.
- A little preview at the end
- All characters introduced, including super minor ones.
- You actually know what is going on!
- I'm sorry. The joke room doesn't exist after all, sadly, because it just won't fit.

Thanks a lot! :)

Stop. Don't despair. Be happy. Smile.
These are the steps to control.


In a certain country during the late 20th century, a series of strange deaths occurred. All of the victims were found with their bodies putrefied, even though they shouldn't have died more than a few hours ago. This, however, stopped as quickly as it had come, only to be replaced by a series of strange disappearances. The government tried to hush it up, because they had no leads, while a secret private detective group went on a manhunt for the perpetrator. These cases closed upon the unfortunate deaths of said group in an accident. Years passed.

All was well, until the decaying corpse of Mikaela Lane turned up in an abandoned warehouse.

This story is set a year after that - about a young female governmental mercenary, Sho Reilen, who is skilled in the use of swords. She has something she wants - to confront Kaison Voltaire, a young man who seeks to hunt her down in revenge for the death of his beloved friend, Mikaela.

Crimson Rafflesia is a story about truth and lies, love and hate, and a field of decaying flowers.

Heath Perrison
Image
Heath is the current head of the Perrison family, a group which does quite a few odds and ends for the government, and has direct connections with Prime Minister George Faraday, who barely shows himself. He has some rather eccentric hobbies, and is currently being targeted by the Goldsteins, a rich family that shows some opposition to the government.

Flora was a five-year-old girl who was torn from her sister, Mikaela, during the civil war. She died more than a decade before the beginning of the story in a tragic mass incident. A pity, indeed - she was a friendly, cheerful girl, admired by everyone in the orphanage she was from. Yet still, there is more to her than meets the eye, and heaven knows what kind of imprint she has left in history, as well as what she will continue to leave.

Image
A boy who is extremely devoted to the National Liberation Front.

This sounds so interesting. It's a nice change of pace to be able to play as a villain for once >:] She looks so innocent though...
I'm really interested to see how everything looks in game. Are there any screenshots?

There's no confirmed release date yet, but I will make a demo that sets the stage. :) As for screenshots, just have the title screen now:

I've finished a CG of one of the male characters (Kaison), but I'll post it here only after I'm done with the sprite too. :) So stay tuned.

The art definitely looks good. The main character also seems pretty interesting.

You're focusing a lot on color here -- is this just to add flavor, or will color have an important role in the story or imagery?

Thanks. :)

@Bairaagi: The colours, hmm, it's mostly imagery. It does form a rather great theme in the story, especially since the main character likes painting. :) And killing people, but let's not go there, shall we?
