Welcome to the site goldenteaset!

Great! I had a long battle with that explanation. Originally it was a paragraph or two longer because I took the time to explain exactly what the mission was about. I removed that to save space and add a little mystery but was worried people would think it was odd that the mission, the biggest event of the game, wasn't detailed. So, I'm happy to hear what's there is enough to be interesting ^^.

Currently I'm torn between "A Peaceful Break" and "An Accustomed Occasion": on the one hand, an open compass in the middle of untamed land--sounds like an adventurer to me! (As does "A Day Getting Started".) On the other hand, an elegant dining setup that appears abandoned--a mysterious person on the run, or somebody who runs late? They're all intriguing!


Neat. You did really well interrupting what they mean, I think you'll be pleased by the characters attached to those tables :].
goldenteaset wrote:Buffalo Seer looks like fun, particularly since they come across as eccentric to others. Their mask is a good combo of endearing and creepy!


Aaw, thanks. I was hoping they wouldn't come across as entirely creepy.
goldenteaset wrote:Trinette also looks like a force to be reckoned with--are her gun and poses meant to reference "The Man With The Golden Gun", by the way? Either way, nice!


You know at the time I was just thinking that'd be a nice look but now that you mention it, that was probably one of the reasons I thought a golden gun and such would look cool :lol:.
goldenteaset wrote:Do the tables count as interesting characters?


Haha, sure, if that's what made the biggest impression they can count.
goldenteaset wrote:I love Steampunk, so I'm glad to see more VNs tackle it! It'll be interesting to see how Buffalo Seer, who seems to be both unfitting and fitting for an adventure, adapts and shows their skills. I'm also curious as to how their love interests will react to their "creepy-with-Normal-society" fashion sense/personality! :lol:
I agree. It makes me happy to see more popping up.

Once the characters are shown off I'll put up some more screenshots so people can start getting an idea of how Seer tends to interact with others~

You've done an awesome job with Kea's sprite, I'm amazed at the small details! I look forward to seeing the others as well. ^_^

MAN I love this idea. I love the Buffalo Seer (pls child) and I like the idea that they're basically searching for their ~fated spouse~ and finding that. Well. Relationships do Not Work That Way. I'll be coming back for a more thorough comment on everything, probably, but just know that I am definitely looking forward to this! Like, really, really do. It's been a while since I wanted to latch on a WIP and just nod in satisfaction whenever I see it while I scroll bc that idea? I am down with it.

(Kea is already a precious, too. Are they the agender option?)

Hehe, thank you. I made massive multi-page long design sheets for all the characters and it's very impressive how konett is able to get it all down into one cohesive character. It means a lot when people notice all the detail that went into them X'3.

Haha, yeah, poor Seer ends up having a pretty rough time throughout the game.

Aaw, thank you very much! The idea of the MC knowing who they were going to end up with is something I've always thought would be neat, but it's such a specific idea that I can really only use it once so I tried my best to make it count ^w^.
Ghost of Crux wrote:(Kea is already a precious, too. Are they the agender option?)
Thank you c:. And yessiree. Kea only goes by 'they' pronouns and would really not appreciate anyone trying to guess what their physical sex is. So, the ones left are the guy and gal LIs.

What do you think of the concept? Is the explanation for everything too long?
I love this concept! I think it's super interesting and I'll defiantly be giving it a play once it comes out. The explanations are short enough to keep me from being bored from reading them but detailed enough to give me a basic idea. d(owo)b

Which table would you select?
The fancy one with the candelabra

Which, if any, of the characters revealed do you like so far?
Honestly, the MC interests me the most hahahah

Any other questions, comments, concerns
Not really. I love the originality behind this idea!

Thank you very much ALIENAgency :mrgreen:. And that's good to know!

Neat :]. It'll be a while before the character associated with that one will be shown, but I hope you'll like them.

Great. It's always worrisome to have a very defined MC since you never know if people will enjoy them or not. I'm really glad people have found Seer interesting so far!

The first page has been updated with the second possible future spouse! The lady love interest who is symbolized by the peaceful break table.

So, the only one left to show is the guy LI who is represented by the accustomed occasion table.

We also added a link under screenshots to a post that shows a bit of the animation effects in the game.

Oooh, Piper seems interesting. Kea's still my favorite so far, but Piper seems like she'll be interesting to get to know.

Thank you Zelan :mrgreen:. I hope you'll like the final option too~


The sprites are just about finished. Those are one of the biggest things left needed for the demo so once that's done it'll be a huge step forward.

The first post was updated with the third, and final, future spouse option ^^.

If you want to see how the characters compare in the game, here's some images with the sprites shown together;
