Les Contes Magiques: Marie Lévesque [Fantasy|GxB][DEMO 8/17]

You play as Marie Lévesque, a 2nd-year student at the prestigious Institut de Sorcellerie.
Since the beginning of civilization, this institute was built as one of many other guardian towers, meant to both train and employ defenders.

At first, Marie found her experience there to be rather easy-going. However, something ominous appears over the horizon. A female student goes missing, and then is found dead... and subsequently, others fall to the same horrifying fate. What exactly is going on here?

I'm also bad at writing summaries, so early apologies. :-(

Concept Art
Marie Lévesque
The only daughter from a family of magi. She felt confined in her small village, so she jumped at the chance to explore past her world.
Spunky and extremely curious. She's a little bit too nosy at times.
An alchemist.

ImageImage
Concept Art
Antoine leBlanc
An orphan who was abandoned by his mother a few days after his birth. He was taken care of by the institute's late headmaster.
Very outgoing and easygoing. He's quite the slacker.
A healer.

Image
Concept Art
Corentin Chevalier
The only son and successor to his family name. As expected, he was trained to hold up the honor to his name--absolute perfection in his magic studies.
Rather anti-social and prideful. He's extremely hardworking and intelligent.
A summoner.

THIS LOOKS AMAZING!!!!

It seems like there are different types of magics? (correct me if I'm wrong!!) which I think could be a lot of fun.

Can't wait :D

Also the GUI looks stellar

@Laniessa: Thanks!!! \ o /

sasquatchii: Thanks you!! I'm happy you like the GUI, since I'm pretty bad at it, hee. :p

Yeah, different types of magics! Pretty much the standard at the moment (MC is Alchemy, Antoine is White/Healing, Corentin is Summoning). I'm really hoping to add more characters into the mix once I release the final version of what's planned at the moment. o /

Update! So, writing is going along slowly, but the demo will most likely only have a few actual scenes in it.
Most of the coding is done (scheduling and cookin') except for the battle screens. GUI still needs to be done for a lot of the screens, but will most likely be done by deadline.
Arts is moving along slowly as well, finished the MC sidesprite and am working on Antoine's on-screen sprite.
Music is going along swimmingly! A lot of the tracks are complete, am waiting on a few tracks. :3c

Music:
This song'll play on the title screen, composed by Zia. And if you haven't looked at it already, here's a song that Doc made. :>

@Green Glasses Girl: Aaa, thank you!! \o/

Updates! Uhh, so, been working on GUI and character sprites. I'm almost done with the scheduling screen, need to work on the crafting screen. And the preference, stats and extras screen (the former two should be easy since I have a layout set up already, but for extras I may only get to musicbox because I wanna show that off).

I dunno, music is going along good! Definitely will be done by the time of the demo. I'm so happy to have these two musicians makin' music for this game. :'(

Writing is uh... UHH GOING OKAY! At least it's a date sim, so writing is slightly easier than writing a novel that isn't broken up. I'll probably have enough material for the demo.

sorani: Thanks you!! I'M TRYIN' TY!!

Updates: Music
I mean... I dunno what to say about this, but nearly all of the tracks are finished. :D

Updates: Writing
Writing is going okay! I've been doing more planning for what's past the demo, and script is coming along fine. Hoping for at least 5k for the demo script.

Updates: Art
And here comes a whole ton of updates! I worked a lot on GUI and character art this week, so here's some update images. I'll fix up some of the GUI if I have more time before the demo release, or afterwards. (I also just remembered that I have to do GUI for the extras/music box, hahahaha.)

I'll add more recipes once I'm entirely done with the main chunk for the demo. :3c

I like the art style! It has something charming in it.

While I'm not into crafting and scheduling, I'm interested in the story premise. So I'll wait the release.
Good luck with your work!

Thank you! (I'll try not to make the scheduling thing too tedious.)
