Thanks for the support guys. I just finished the last guy. Now there's no more silhouettes.

I'm off to finish secondary characters now. =)


@Hazel-Bun
I plan to make the routes long so it'll be in the $20-30 range. We'll see. ^_^

I've finished two secondary characters. Whether they are friend or foe all depends on the path. ^-^
I forgot to color the blond's gem though. It's so easy to miss things.

Image

I've been doing a lot of BGs but most of them are not finished for any proper screenshots yet. I can only give previews of some work in progress backgrounds and a few other graphics.

Image

The hardest thing for me to do is incorporating fighting/magic/effects into the visual novel and writing action scenes. :mrgreen:

I'm on a self-made deadline where I must write the first half sometime in September so I can send it to my proofreader. I'll probably be able to give a completion estimate by then.

Thanks guys for your interest!

Music samples are up. There's three pieces you can listen to.
We're aiming for twenty original tracks to fit every scene and mood. ^_^
Tell us what you think!

I really like the music! A Tear Falls is a REALLY beautiful track <3 ;__;
Will there be a jukebox inside the game or a special edition of the game ehich includes the soundtrack? The ost for sale seperately? I like otome soundtracks!

I spent a lot of time on the GUI so I'm glad you like it. =D

A lot of other people like A Tear Falls too.
It's also my favorite so far.
I'll include a jukebox inside the visual novel. The OST will also be sold separately so anyone can obtain a copy. =)
I'll think about special editions.

Here's some work in progress screenshots.


Some backgrounds and art will still be polished and adjusted. They're nearly final, though. =)
I swear there are more smiling moments in this project. It's just that some of those happy moments are on much unfinished backdrops. ^_~

Here's the CG gallery for all your collecting needs.

Image


I save the images piece by piece and stick them together by script.
Doing that helps reduce the file size and it gives me a larger variety of expressions to do without worrying about file size. It's great for all the other larger files I plan to add. =)

Ah, that's real nice! I like the backgrounds and how the sprites looks on them :)
Everything looks sooo good!

And I never thought of doing that with character sprites before :o

I've updated the screenshots and I know you guys like art updates. =) Some of you may have seen these around. They were unpolished so I didn't post here. I've also updated the character profiles and story on the first post, so all the early concept and info are updated. ^-^

Mostly Final Screenshots and GUI

Works in Progress and Concepts

So where are we on the rest? Music is almost done, there's 16 or so tracks completed so far. =D
With writing, I'm always editing and deleting things so that is a little tough to tell.
There's going to be more than 48 CGs and counting (at least 8 CGs per character).
