Really enjoyed the game! I'll give more detailed feedback later but must say the mind system was a good idea.

Mishel's WIP. He first appears in a flashback in Act II, hence the costume. Anyone who has played the demo might remember that Kalevel mentioned him in Act I.

@Hazel-Bun - Thanks! :) Glad to hear you enjoyed it.

And some new art to kick off Act II (well, the art and code part of it, anyway). You can click the banner above to go to the Tell a Demon website, with the demo download link and such.

Trying out making animated .gifs of my progress. I'm afraid all this one really shows is how indecisive I can be, heh. Tetrine's sprite.

Hello! I've been following your work for quite awhile now, ever since I played Asher a few years back. I am so excited for the release of Tell a Demon! The demo was really amazing and as always, I am completely in love with your artwork. It is just so, so beautiful. I love your backgrounds especially, and the way you blur things and make them look soft (if that makes sense :P).
Anyways, I like how you added a backstory to the demo as well as the 'mind' system. The story is really interesting and unique, and I can't wait to learn more about both the overall plot, and Tell and Julian's story. I can't decide which of the two I'm more curious about!

Also, since this is an Asher sequel, I can't help but wonder...
Are we going to find out what happens to Tetrine?

Sorry for the length between updates on this site--been a bit of a crazy month.

Image
There's a bit more animation in Act II. I'm working on scene 3 of Act II right now, which is pretty long and requires a few new images because it's a key turning point in the story.

She's definitely in Act II on. TAD takes place not too long (about six months) after the end of Asher. I think I can say this much without spoiling it. ;)
Thanks so much for the lovely comment! I'm glad to hear you like the art--and good eye for the blur technique; I like to let unimportant parts of the background art fade a bit, and to make for a bit of a watercolor look.

It's great to hear that so far this has been well-received, since it was one of the things I added last and was unsure about. :) Thanks!

xD So nice to hear; I'm hoping after scene 3 is done that the progress will pick up a bit so I can release Act II soon. Thanks again for taking the time to comment, and so glad to hear you're looking forward to Tell a Demon.

Looking really good! Your art is always beautiful and the world you previously created in Asher was very immersive, so I'm sure this one will be even better!

Nearly done with another scene--some screenshots with OpenDyslexic enabled. I spend most of the testing/editing phase with OpenDyslexic enabled because the kerning and line spacing is quite different from the regular font, so it's just easier to test with it. As a result, I get used to it and forget to switch back to the regular font before taking screenshots. ...Actually, as a font I'm starting to feel rather fond of it. It looks kind of retro.

Anyway,

@Green Glasses Girl - Thank you! I love painting people~

@Renmiou- Thanks! I hope so. :) I'm aiming for it to be more fleshed out in Tell a Demon, since that was one of the more common complaints I got of Asher.

Wow, I 'm so glad to see this is coming along. I haven't checked the forum in ages. I'm going to go play the available game as soon as I finish this post!

It looks amazing <3

Hm, maybe I'll do a run through of Asher again first. Is this set afterwards? If it is, then what ending was the canonical one? I'm really interested in learning more about the expanded universe and characters. (especially Tetrine, obviously ; )

Please don't hesitate to contact me if I can be of assistance for any further installments. I'm sure I'll be in touch with you soon to talk about Tell a Demon.

@Kay
Yay! Hope you like it :)

Tell a Demon is set about six months afterwards.

I have another Tetrine story after Tell a Demon is finished--Tetrine has a minor but significant role in TAD (she first appears in Act II).

It's funny, but I just finished a rough prototype of Asher 3--its working project name, not its final name--and I was just thinking of you the other day when I was going over what I have of the script. :)

As far as ending goes, I think it's more "the ending I want most to continue from since time and resources are limited," rather than canonical (they all could have happened, although this is even more true for the endings in Tell a Demon, where you can tailor the character's personality a bit).

Basically, Tell a Demon continues from any of the Asher endings
in which Tetrine ends up working for Kalevel and more or less in a relationship with Markaius, and so does Asher 3, where Tetrine is the primary protagonist again. EDIT: And in which Julius believes Tetrine is dead.
