Another update! Finally have pictures of all the characters, though most of them are less than adequately coloured ^_^; It's been a slow couple of weeks, but I think I'm getting back into the swing of things now!

It's great watching the progress of this (esp. the UI *_*), can't wait to see how the sprites other expressions'll come together as well as the plot 8)

I love Leda's design! I also like that you included the moms in the story, even the evil one huhu. Parents tend to get cut out in media even though there's fun themes to explore with them.

Thanks folks! I'm definitely looking forward to the mother/daughter relationships, especially since they're so different in personality :D I got the idea to make Rothbart into Odette's mother (and Odile's actual sister) from thinking about how step-parents are always evil in fairytales (while biological parents represent correctness), and the about how some of my friends have had truly terrible experiences with their birth parents. I thought it would be interesting to play with that - so I have one mother who is the usual stern-but-fair archetype, but the other is genuinely awful, and her daughters' fear/hate of her is totally legit.

Speaking of mothers, I also added Arnaude's colours sprite to the front page :)

Those sprites are very very nice :) It's really great how you made mothers and daughters look related while giving them each a very different feel about them.

Now that I have seen her lovely sprite there is a question I would like to ask about Odile: Would she be a romance/platonic option or will the routes and endings strictly focus on Sigrid & Odette ?
I hope she can find some freedom, drive and happiness of her own but I'm very afraid for her since she seems like the type of character who would find solace in sacrificing herself for others. :(

Anyway, I look forward to the game and to seeing Princess Sigrid in action ! :) (something about her reminds me of Ymir from SnK)
Best of luck !

Actually Belphégor, I WAS originally only going to do a traditional Odette ending (albeit with a much more expanded part for Odile) the more I think about it, the more I want to do an Odile romance ending too. I'm having some trouble with it - finding the right points in the story to have it branch - but it's definitely something I'll do if I can.

(Don't worry though, even if there's no Odile ending, I don't plan to do anything horrible to her. Maybe I'm just a sap for happy endings, but I like stories where people ultimately get what they deserve ;p)

PSA: Game is not dead! I had to put it on hiatus to get work prepped for a convention that came up out of nowhere. Gonna be back to finish it after that! Either way, I'm DEFINITELY not abandoning it. ETA is now December, and we'll see what happens ^^

Decided I'm gonna get back to work on this for NaNoRenO (or more accurately, IntRenaiMo - since I'll be finishing in March rather than starting there!). I don't think I have time for a totally new project, but I got a lot of work done for Swan x Swan, so I think I could reasonably finish it by the end of the month. Here's hoping! :)

Some swans for an update! At first I had totally forgotten to draw these, even though I always knew I would need both Odette and Odile in swan form at least once >3>; Whups!

If you haven't seen the front page, I have fantastic news that a composer friend of mine is up for putting together some more ambient, loop-friendly music for based on the ballet. Her work is amazing - she does layered compositions using electronic violin - and I can't wait to hear what she makes XD It's gonna be amazing!

Re: Swan x Swan [YuriJam][Romance][Fantasy][NaNo16] (Preview

#25 Post by Fox Lee » Sat Mar 26, 2016 4:16 am

Last week of NaNoRenO! Things are looking... good, probably! Most everything but the actual scripting is done, and since I write the script as I'm putting the pieces together, that's always the last thing for me.

Anyway, I've been quiet lately, so here's some previews!

Image
Sigrid and Arnaude doing the mother/daughter conflict thing

Image
Testing some SFX pieces. Surprisingly effective!

Image
Me avoiding putting the swan sprite in the same frame as a human character :p

Image
My star-crossed lovers finally meet!

Image
I'm really enjoying Sigrid - she is so handsome, and such a doofus XD

Image
I tweaked the lighting in Leda's intro. Hey, she's an evil sorceress, she can have her own lighting crew :p

Image
Odette's character takes shape. Oh Sigrid, you are soooo smooth XD

That swan in the lake is just... super pretty. Like, holy crap.

Also, I agree, most, if not all, of the Leda scenes need sinister lighting. She's giving me a very Mother Gothel-esque vibe.
