We started working on a2 at the start of February. It was originally a 2-week project that was going to be released on Valentine’s Day, but we decided to spend some more time on it. Our new deadline is the end of February, so instead of considering it a late Valentine’s Day game, we’re going to call it a one month early NaNoRenO project.
Our planned features include:
- 3 endings (Love, Friendship, and ???)
- 9 CGs
- theme song by the talented Gerald Ko
- music and Chinese glossary
- unlockable “subtitle mode” for all Chinese dialogue
- sneak cameo by a certain surprise someone…
Sona Song (宋) - A tough-talking, independent girl who won't take crap from others. She doesn't care much for classical music and has been estranged from her father for years. Chinese-American, but knows very little Chinese.
Yin Le Hao (郝音乐) - A passionate, but intimidating young conductor with an incredibly strict work ethic. He greatly respected Sona's father, who was his teacher back in China. He doesn't speak any English.
Story (all) – 100%
Writing (Arowana) – 100%
Art (Nellie, azurextwilight) – 100% (now doing coloring and GUI)
Music/SFX (Nellie, azurextwilight) – 100% (currently looking through free resources)
Coding (Arowana) – 100%
More updates to follow over the next two weeks! Feel free to give us your comments, questions, etc. (and wish us luck for the “February NaNo” deadline hahaha).
