UPDATE 8/20/2018!

#241 Post by SweetChiel » Sun Aug 19, 2018 9:13 pm

Hey, guys!
How did your week go? Mine was great -though I somewhat feel guilty for not working much ><

Now, without further ado, here's what I did last week:

Image

- I polished the romantic scenes
- Made a song lyric for Hototo
, one of our superbacker's bard OC! It's kind of a mix of poem and riddles, I hope I did it justice :'))

I also pretty much reorganized the scenes' order.

Other than those...

I also got myself a gift; the remastered version of Hakuoki! *happydance*

The game's size is something else! I think this is the first time I saw a game surpassing 20GB :')) I just finished the download today, so aside from enjoying myself, I hope I'll get some juicy grammar/vocab reference from it~

Last but not least --I'm sorry! I told you I will release the free .psd file on 18th August, but it went past through my mind since I was spending time with my family ^^;;

You can get your free .psd file Here:

UPDATE 8/27/2018!

#242 Post by SweetChiel » Sun Aug 26, 2018 9:30 pm

Hi guys! How did your week go?
Mine was so-so ><

Image

- I wrote 3.1k+ words, this includes the last scene for Hototo's Superbacker and a bad end.

The story has progressed to the point where Maya is going to meet the antagonist and... honestly speaking, I'm not looking forward writing the fighting scene & the bad ends ^^; the fighting scene is a bit hard since it needs to be better than the last ones, but the real problem is the bad ends!

There are some gory details and blood so I often write until late with a scary music to get into the mood --in the end, I got pretty depressed & scared by myself :')) Aaaah, even though the result is better than expected, I don't like writing bad ends! There are 4 bad ends though, so 1 down, 3 more to go...

- Nevertheless! With this, the Superbackers' scenes are all finished! Yay! x'D It was fun working with you guys <3

- Aside from the usual polishing, I also changed some things in Chapter 4 part 1.

- In addition, I also found some decent SFXs & awesome BGMs last week!

There's a sad news though...

Crystal Liu got overwhelmed with multiple projects and school so she dropped out from the proofreading, leaving me with 1 proofreader, KrystalFlare :'(

I'm not sure whether to recruit another proofreader or not --they'll have to read all chapters from start to finish and I'm afraid they'll be far behind if not overwhelmed x_x

What do you guys think? please leave a comment below to help me think this through ><

UPDATE 9/3/2018!

#243 Post by SweetChiel » Sun Sep 02, 2018 10:11 pm

Hey, guys! What's up?
I have a good news today!

Image

Last week I went to a mountain and isolated myself to focus on script writing! (not literally x'D just in my humble house) And lo and behold! I wrote 6,1k+ words!

There are two reasons why I write so much:

1. We're getting close to Chapter 5's climax! Wooooooot! x'D I only need to write 2 scenes and then the fighting scene with the antagonist will begin! Of course, depending on whose route you're in, the fighting scene will turn out different! Plot-wise, I have to separate the fighting scene into 2, so... 8 scenes until we reach the ending! *happydance

2. I got background commissions! I usually don't accept any commissions since I need to focus on Bermuda, but my new boss is very understanding to let me make only 1 background per week and the coloring type is pastel with not much shading so I think it won't be too hard to slip the time for these :'3

Oh, OH!
On top of the good news, I also managed to get a new proofreader! Her nickname is Kii*Anima, English is her first language and she's a graduate from an English degree, so I'm really, really happy her schedule is open and willing to help with the proofread! *happydance

Let's welcome her with a warm welcome, guys! *cueclaps&cheers

To celebrate, let's hear a special BGM that I'll be using in the Spring Village!


I hope you guys are as happy as I do -^.^- really one heck of a week! For now, I'll do my best adapting to the new schedule & take my time writing the fighting scenes.

That's it for now and see ya next week!
xoxo,

UPDATE 9/10/2018!

#244 Post by SweetChiel » Sun Sep 09, 2018 10:06 pm

Hey, guys!
How did your week go? Mine was exhausting x_x

Image

I wrote 6k+ words and finished up the first meeting with Antagonist scene! It was quite an intense scene and I think my brain almost have a cramp from organizing the flow of the conversation :'D

There's just so many things I want to write there and it's not even the battle scene! I ended up listening to lots of horror music to get the right mood :')) ah, but one good thing is our composers have great BGMs to accompany this important scene, so look forward to it!

I also did a major polishing in Chapter 5; particularly about the commas --I thought commas can only be used AFTER 'but' --it turns out we can use it AFTER and BEFORE :')) Kii*Anima have lots to do to cover my mistakes and we're planning to re-polish ALL Chapter again just to make sure we missed nothing/as little as possible and other tidbits, so wish us luck!

Alright, now it's been a while since I last give out a sneak peek, right? Here's a big one!

Image

Are you happy? Finally a sneak peek about other mythical beings that resides in the Forgotten Isles! x'D

Also, my Patreon finally hits 3 digits! *happydance* and to celebrate, I want to give out a .psd file for ALL my patrons!

Image

Behold! My all-time-favorite actor! Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow! >///< I always admire him for being able to act many different characters --and I swear, his face could shift shape or something!

Did you know that he also played Willy Wonka from Chocolate Factory and the Wolf from Into the Woods?

*cough*

Okay, I'll stop here before my ramblings get worse x'D

...In any case, I'm really grateful to you guys QuQ

Patreon has covered many deficits and expenditures, be it for the game or personal --like, I could feed my pups so they stay healthy and fat, help with the bills whenever it ran short, and I can work at home!

Of course, the support I get from backers and people willing to wait patiently are something I can't buy with money, so I'm really thankful too for thatQ__Q

I never imagine to have so many wonderful people willing to support me for a whole year, so really, THANK YOU! *bows*

Alright, I'm sure your eyes are tired now from reading x'D
See you again next week, my darlings!

xoxo,

SweetChiel

Haaaaiiiii! Been awhile since you get comments or maybe not. Just sending some spirit and smiles your way. :D I am sooo looking forward to it *sighs* It's gonna be good. I can be harsh at times in criticizing and taste but lately it's almost as if that's gone now cuz I've seen so many good games (Thinking emoji). Er the point is that I didn't have problems enjoying your first game, I am very excited to play ypur second one. I have given up on fanfictions A LOT of times since they were just immature, unreadable with so many flaws, I was just correcting them rather than enjoy the story. So my point, you're gonna make a great game Chiel! Also we're living pretty close I think. Neighbouring countries. :}

Hi chiharuchi! It's certainly been a while! X'D
I'm glad to hear you got to read/play many good games! My new proofreader is an English graduate, so we will definitely do our best so you won't have to correct grammars and so you can enjoy yourself!

Thank you again for encouraging me :'D it's always great to hear someone is excited and willing to wait -even after so long!

And... are you in Malaysia? O.o I've been there once, but even if you're not, we will always be good neighbors! X'D

UPDATE 9/17/2018!

#247 Post by SweetChiel » Sun Sep 16, 2018 11:17 pm

Hey, guys! What's up?
Last week, a lot of things happened ><

Image

- I wrote 7.5k+ words and boy, was it intense or what ^^;;

There are a lot of action scenes going on here. Maya also needs to meet 4 important characters first before confronting the Antagonist again. A lot of information is going on here and the fighting + action scenes are giving me a headache, both in writing and programming sense, but I'm sure I can do it given enough time and polishing!

- I'm planning to try and release Winged Ones on Steam. I have a lot to do like getting to know the tax system/contract, learn how to upload the game, how to include achievements, etc. This is going to help me a lot later if I want Bermuda to launch on Steam without a hitch. If things going well, I'm going to distribute Steam keys instead of itch.io keys.

Kii*Anima also plans to proofread Winged Ones first before we upload it on Steam so wish us luck!

- Meanwhile, as I progress with the background commission, I also polished some of Bermuda's Backgrounds.

Image

It's not much, but I hope to enhance them better ><

I also plan to make more backgrounds later for particular scenes. Maybe I can do them at the same time I make the CGs!

In any case, script writing takes priority for now! As long as this is finished, I can zoom through drawing CGs and programming!

I really do feel bad for making you wait, but I need to keep up the writing quality, so please bear with this slow-as-a-snail me Q_Q

Thank you for reading! That's it for now and see you again next week!

xoxo,

SweetChiel

UPDATE 9/24/2018!

#248 Post by SweetChiel » Sun Sep 23, 2018 9:45 pm

Hi, guys! How's your week?
Mine is filled with headache and editing :'))

Image

I wrote 6.4k+ words!
Among the 4 people Maya need to talk to, 2 is somewhat done. I sometimes confuse myself with the complexity of the story x_x I'm really struggling, trying to find the right flow of the conversations, but I reckon I won't be going anywhere if I stress about it so I'll make rough drafts for now. O boy, there's going to be some intense polishing!

On the other hand, my new boss, the background commissioner, I assume he's very happy with the result of my work so he decided to add 3 more backgrounds to the list --and maybe 2 more if it's as planned as in his email x'D

Last but not least, do you remember this?

Image

It's been a while since I posted any big previews, so I'm finally going to uncover them in my patreon! 2 for my $10 patrons and 1 for my $5 patrons!

Don't worry though, I'm going to give you guys a 50% preview the next week x'D

Now then, I'm planning to increase my work hour so I hope we could get to the fighting scenes next week -wish me luck and see you guys again!

xoxo,
