Pretty logo is pretty... Pretty art is pretty too. XD

I'll definitely be looking forward to this... It seems like a true slice of life story. And I love friendship themes and I'm also betting the family theme has a bit of 'feels' involved in it. XD

My favourite character so far has to be the twins and I'm making sure I'm entering their path first. XD

As for questions... I can't really think of anything good. Maybe what they'd love to do to improve the cafe even more? orz Or like if they own the cafe, what would they do to it. (Of course this question only applies to Logan and Lacey. XD)

This looks amazing! (but nearly everything with Deji's in it art looks amazing)

I like the concept of there being other character routes apart from romance, but I do so wish Noah was a romanceable character <3

Oh, yay! I'm glad to hear that someone likes Logan. ^^
Even though you can't date Noah, he still has lots of cute moments throughout Lacey's route. I hope you look forward to it~

There are lots of "feels" all around, but Basil's route probably has the most. :]
Hooray! I hope you enjoy their route. ^^
That's a great question! Thanks for contributing.

I'm honored that your first post is in my game's WIP. Welcome to LSF and thanks for the comment!
If you like Noah, then you'll enjoy Lacey's route. He's in it quite a lot. I should probably call it the twins' route rather than Lacey's route. ^^;

Background production has started! Hopefully I'll have something to post in the next couple of weeks. I hope you all look forward to it, and thank you for your interest in Corona Borealis. ^^

Happy New Year!

I hope you all had a merry holiday season with lots of time spent with your loved ones. 2014 is already shaping up to be an exciting year for me, and I pray the year will be wonderful for you all, too.

As far as Corona Borealis is concerned, 2014 will be a big year indeed! Sprite artist Deji has confirmed that she’ll be finishing the character sprites in February, so look forward to that. Also, we’re ready to announce two new members of the CB team! Jonathan “SundownKid” Xikis will be designing and implementing the game’s GUI. Jonathan is currently working on his own game, Icebound, and has a great deal of experience in GUI creation. Additionally, Collette “XxrenxX” Ren will be doing all of the 3D backgrounds. Below is a BG she did for Corona Borealis--June's room!
Image
June occupies one of the vacant rooms of the cafe (formally a bed & breakfast) for the duration of the summer.
Do you like the look of it? Should we change anything? Don't hesitate to give any constructive criticism you may have.
Lastly, I believe I have all of the in-between work Q&As written. I plan on previewing snippets of this dialogue from each character to give you a better idea of what they’re like. Whose should I reveal first: Basil's, Logan's, or Lacey’s?

Edit: I've also updated the questions in the first post.

I'm glad things are going well for you ^^. The new background looks nice and I'm sure the GUI will turn out wonderfully.

My vote goes to Basil X3.

Deji and Sundownkid. that is some good team right there. :wink: Really looking forward for the release.btw the bg looks pretty neat too!
EDIT**
answers to the questions.
1. Is it weird that i find Basil interesting?/lol.
2 and 3. Voice acting sounds nice, and I would certainly enjoy some handful of CGs from Deji.

First off: I'd like to compliment the superb art in this VN <3.It's amazing.And secondly: It's great to see a game with Friendship (and Family) routes and not only romance <3~.
Questions~:
1. Which guy or gal is your favorite?
(1). Ehm,Noah ^_^.Those glasses just reel me in ;).I like the fact that he SEEMS optimistic but he's contrary to that xD.Awesome c(;.

2. In between work, June will converse with her fellow employees. If you were in June’s shoes, what questions would you like to ask the cast? You just might see your question answered in-game!
(2).Er..If I was June..I'd ask one of her employees this: "What do you like about working here..?" (*cough*..I'm bad at questions xD.)
~~ Anyways,I wish you all this best on this project! Most importantly,have fun with it <3~!

#25 Post by PB&Jelly » Thu Jan 16, 2014 4:14 pm

I guess Basil's first, since there was only one vote and it was for him. ^^; Copied straight from the script:

Code: Select all

    j "How did you and mom meet?"
    p "You mean she's never told you?"
    "His face reddens as he shifts uncomfortably."
    p "It's... kind of an embarrassing story."
    "I lean forward in anticipation, only adding to his discomfort."
    p "She, uh..."
    p "Well, she had come over to see Duke, originally..."
    p "Uh, Duke is my brother."
    p "You see, they had planned on driving up to Ashford to see a play and she didn't have a car..."
    p "But, Duke had stayed up rather late the night before."
    p "He had gotten a little, uh, inebriated and none of us could wake him."
    p "So... I took her."
    "My eyes widen."
    j "And?"
    p "I was so nervous."
    p "I had never been out with a girl before and, on top of that, she was much older than me."
    p "I thought the date was going passably well until the drive home when I..."
    "He pauses, and then lowers his voice."
    p "I hit a bunny."
    j "You didn't!"
    p "I did."
    p "If I hadn't done something to kill the date beforehand--uh, pardon the pun--then that certainly did."
    p "I stiffened, prepared to ride the rest of the hour-long car ride home in chilled silence, but she reached over and grabbed my hand instead."
    j "Really?"
    p "M'hmm."
    "I grin."
    j "Maybe she secretly hated bunnies."
    p "Now you're just being silly."
Who's next: Logan or Lacey?

And as a reminder, I've updated some of the questions in the first post. I value any feedback that I get from you all. ^^

Hehe yay X3. Basil's dialog is great.

1. Which guy or gal is your favorite?
Still Basil.

2. What are some optional features you'd like to see added to Corona Borealis? For example: English voice acting, an opening video, additional art (sprite poses, outfits, CGs), original soundtrack, etc.
Those are all nice suggestions. Any of them would be neat. I can't really think of any other options though.

3. If you could pick only one of the above features to add to CB, which one would it be?
Addition art, specifically poses or outfits :3.

No votes this time around, so I guess that means I get to pick. Here's Logan!

Code: Select all

    j "Who's your favorite superhero?"
    j "By the way, I may punch you in the throat if you say Superman."
    lo "Whoa, I picked up on the fact that you were lazy, but criminally insane, too?"
    lo "You're a real catch."
    j "Dodging the question, I see."
    lo "In all seriousness, I don't really like superheroes."
    j "You don't like superheroes?"
    j "That's it."
    j "Hand over your man card."
    lo "I say I don't like men in spandex and you insult my masculinity?"
    j "I see now."
    j "You're jealous of their fab bods."
    lo "First off, I honestly don't know if I can converse with someone who uses the phrases \"fab\" or \"bod\"."
    lo "Secondly, you're an idiot."
    j "Struck a nerve, did I?"
    lo "Seriously, stop talking and clean something."
    j "Fine, but you should really deal with your body issues."
    j "It's not healthy to keep that stuff to yourself."
Though Logan is a grumpy bear at first, a joking/sarcastic side of him emerges once he gets to know June better. They don't start to really connect until Logan shows this side of himself, however. June is quite sarcastic herself, and there's quite a bit of fun dialogue between the two later.

Guess what Deji sent me yesterday...

ImageImageImage

Needless to say, I've been having fun playing with her various facial components. Deji is working on Basil today. I'll post previews of the other characters once they're done. :3
