UPDATE 6/17/2019!

#302 Post by SweetChiel » Mon Jun 17, 2019 1:10 am

Good morning, guys!
What's up? How's your week?

Mine went okay, considering Idul Fitri is over and my neighbor is busy renovating again :'D

Image

I wrote 5.1k+ words of angst! *sob* and I still need to write more T^T I think we're nearing the ending, but it's still pretty rough on the edges and I haven't got a good idea about what the bad ending would be.

Hmm... I think I'll just go with the flow for now? As usual?

Oh, I've also finished watching Game of Thrones and despite many people being disappointed, I found the ending acceptable and not too shocking o.o I mean, it's not that bad >< while there are some loopholes/some things could've been planned better, I found myself sweating and sitting on the edge of my chair pretty often due to the many surprise elements.

For example, *spoiler alert!* I disagree when people said Jaime's character arc is all for nothing.

I think we all could agree that the Lannister is a great example about how complicated a family could be.

He didn't get to pick who he loves and this has been pointed out again and again how much he loved Cersei.

Even if he wanted to stop, he couldn't and in the end, Cersei really became the end of him (The hint/foreshadowings are everywhere, especially in the scene where Jaime gave poisoned wine to the old matriarch of Highgarden and quote 'Love is the death of duty' could also means 'Love is more powerful than reason'). He was given a chance to start fresh with Brienne, but he didn't take it. I think this is normal. This is human. Love and hate are the most powerful emotions there are and the things we did for them sometimes cannot be reasoned with logic.

Meanwhile, Jon is another type of human who is able to push away love and did something he hated/didn't want to, because he knows it's the right thing to do.

Somehow, I wasn't really surprised Daenerys took a turn to the worse. Again, it's because the hints are there and the simple explanation where Varys said 'Every tyrant I served believe in destiny'. I mean, it's hard to advice someone when they believe they're the most right. They think their choice is the best for everyone and when you put power in that person's hand, aka a dragon, it's kinda hard to argue when one wrong word could mean we're burnt to ashes.

Daenerys used to be the most compassionate person, but I think the loss of her loved ones pushed her over the edge. Like Cersei.

Cersei is... how to say this. I think her state of mind has been hazardous ever since she witnessed her mother's death. It only became worse when her children died and because she was unable to trust people easily (for good reason; she was surrounded by scheming people, including her father's teaching), her mindset is that she is surrounded by enemies. In addition to that, she's insecure as heck. She couldn't even trust Jaime wholly and kept an eye on him like a hawk. Shrieking at the first signs of possible betrayal and whatnot.

Either way, depending on the circumstances, I came to a conclusion; love could make us the happiest or the most miserable person in the world Q_Q it could even make some people went insane so...

*Sigh*

*Spoiler ends here*

I'm sorry if I rambled ><; I can write an essay about why Game of Thrones is a great show, but I should stop here x_x

In any case, I've learned a lot! Especially about human traits! It was epic! I'm really glad I watched it! And that's something considering how I used to not like tragedy/sad endings! Q_Q

I'll do my best and hopefully, I can make a good story that could catch both good and bad sides of human!

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

SweetChiel

UPDATE 6/24/2019!

#303 Post by SweetChiel » Sun Jun 23, 2019 10:39 pm

Hey guys! How did your week go?
Mine was okay, I had my ups and downs this week ><;

But most importantly, I reached my quota of polishing and writing 3k+ words per week!

Image

The angst is still going~ and I think I'll need some time to polish each layer until it reached the level I wanted (the building of angst is hard work!)

I made some unwise decisions though...

Like, I saw a 50% discount for Harvest Moon: A New Beginning 3DS and I bought it without thinking :') I ended up spending days immersed in it OTL I'm sorry! I really like Amir and I wanted to marry him! *cough

And after I got carried away with harvest moon, I went with my boyfriend to a wedding of his friend and a japanese festival called Ennichisai/Little Tokyo at Jakarta...

The wedding is beautiful, the bride is gorgeous, and I cried when the bride and groom hugged their parents Q_Q

But Ennichisai is very crowded. Seriously, it's hard to just walk around and don't ask how hot it is at midday!

Image

But I had a blast! This is my first time going to the festival and my boyfriend and I gorged ourselves with the food and I played Yo Yo Tsuri, which is fishing Yo Yo water balloons! 

Image

I saw these water balloons often in animes, but I never thought I'll have the chance to try playing and own two! x'D

There's also a snack called Ringo Ame or Candy Apples for sale, but unfortunately, I have weak front teeth so to avoid another appointment with my dentist, I can't eat it ><

I also met many of my boyfriends' friends! They're very nice and some even cosplayed!

Overall, I wasn't able to do much angst writing because of the many happy events I attended--and I was planning to finish some scenes in one go *sob* I'm very sorry for the delay, guys!  *bows* m(_ _)m Hopefully, I can do more writing this week! I'll find an angst novel or movie to get me in the mood if I have to!

Thanks for reading and see you again next week!
xoxo,

SweetChiel

UPDATE 7/1/2019!

#304 Post by SweetChiel » Mon Jul 01, 2019 12:58 am

Morning, guys! Sorry, I overslept a bit ><

The scriptwriting went well last week!

Image

I wrote 4k+ words! I only have a scene or two left before the climax, then bad ending and good ending -^.^)/

The thing is... an unplanned twist happened in a scene I was writing and when I reread it, I like it! But that means, I need to re-adjust the conversation happened next to it if I want to keep it :"D 

Sheeesh, the characters are doing whatever they like, not thinking of their author at all! I was happy with the flow of the conversation, but now I need to re-adjust it and I'm having a hella headache over it :'))

I'll... try and think of something about that twist. 

On another less important note, I tweaked with Kahlil's abs again x'D

Image

I made it firmer, softer, and less conspicuous(?) to fit his face better (I think it's better now? tell me if you think otherwise ><)

*sigh* I'm still thinking about how to adjust the conversation to fit the twist--but anyway! I'll do my best as usual and re-read it again later >:) 

Cheers to another productive week! 
xoxo,

SweetChiel

UPDATE 7/8/2019!

#305 Post by SweetChiel » Sun Jul 07, 2019 11:40 pm

Morning, guys~!

After re-writing & adjusting the scenes in Chapter 5... I've finally come to a conclusion...
Image

Image

Image

That's right, folks! The Scriptwriting is now finished! *cue fireworks 1, 2, & 3*

The good end ended up a bit anticlimatic compared to the main bachelor routes, because there's little to no action--it's leaning more toward psychological than physical, know what I mean? ><

Ah, I also need to polish his bad ending! It's conclusive but kinda short, I need to get back my angsty mood--what was I thinking when I wrote the main bachelors bad ends? @@ The quality over there is insane--I need to maintain the quality control!

...Still, please bear with me if the antagonist route feels like a bonus addition/add-on compared to the main routes ^^; for me, it's like tying up the loose ends & telling the story from another perspective. The philosophy I'm trying to tell you is about moral dilemma and it's uncertain consequences, which could lead into something we never expected to happen, but...

I'll leave it to you! *bows m(_ _)m hopefully, my message could reach you!

In any case, I can finally start programming and CG making this week! The goal is one scene perday and one CG perweek! *happy dance*

My uncle from Surabaya is coming though and I'm quite close to him, so I may have less work day than before because I want to visit & play with him >///< *cough*

Alright, that's it for now and see you guys next week!
xoxo,

SweetChiel

P.S. Thank you so much for everyone's support from the start until now Q_Q I can't believe I've finished writing the story--it's quite sentimental, I didn't want to finish it, but I want to complete the game quickly to show to you all!

I can't do this without you ^///^ we're more than halfway there with the most difficult part done! So please wait a bit more!

UPDATE 7/15/2019!

#306 Post by SweetChiel » Mon Jul 15, 2019 12:00 am

Hey, guys! What's up?
Last week was probably one of my most busiest times in my life @@

Here, I made a list:
1. I programmed in the antagonist's CG button & love meter! These will unlock once you open the antagonist's route by getting all three main bachelors' happy endings! :3

Image

Image

I censored the love meter to avoid spoilers x'D

The last empty space belongs to Gale (we failed to reach his stretch goal @Indiegogo, but let's leave him an empty space ^.^ who knows what can happen in the future, right?)

2. New icon for Encyclopedia button! I'll work on the encyclopedia after most of the programming is done & only need proofreading!

Image

3. I came back from Chapter 5 to Chapter 1 for the sake of checking quality control and guess what? My proofreaders and I found so many things to polish and improve!

Man, they hammered me mercilessly and after writing for so long, I asked myself:
- What's with the ridiculous number of ellipsis?
- Why did I ' ' so many words?
- What was I thinking back then?? x'DD 

Needless to say, Chapter 1 got an intense session of polishing.

I edited and polished like I've never before in my life @@ And, oh, besides grammar mistakes, I also adjusted some of the conversations--especially when Maya first met the Goddess. Hopefully, they will flow better now ><

With that in mind, please look forward for an upgraded version of the demo soon! -^.^)/

Currently, we've just finished proofreading Chapter 1. Chapter 2 is next and once we're done with the demo part of the script, we'll immediately upload it! We might upgrade it twice or thrice like Winged Ones until we're completely satisfied and make sure it's perfect.

Maybe you can compare the old demo with the new one to see how far we've improved? I'll leave it to your hands! *bows*

4. Alas, I decide to program the antagonist's route separately from the main routes. For me, it's easier to program this way ><

Image

I made a table to show you the programming progress ^.^)/ I will only give a stamp everytime we're done with the chapter's programming, CGs, and proofreading! Let's work hard collecting the stamps, starting from the main bachelors routes!

Phew, that's a long update x'D

Thank you for reading and I'll see you guys next week! *hugs*
Cheers to another productive week!
xoxo,

SweetChiel

P.S. My proofreaders and I are perfectionists so expect lots of polishing from now on ^^;

P.S.S. My uncle have gone back to Surabaya! I went shopping & swimming with cousins--really tired afterwards but it was fun!

P.S.S.S. I haven't had the time to play Harvest Moon: A New Beginning 3DS again, but have I told you that I'm beginning to like Sanjay more than Amir? >////< I'm hoping for a reverse confession & proposal!

lol, okay, I'll stop rambling now x'D

New Demo Available! Ver 1.2

#307 Post by SweetChiel » Tue Jul 16, 2019 12:33 pm

Hi, guys! As promised, here comes the new upgraded demo! Let's give a big thank you & warm hugs to my proofreaders; Kii*Anima, Krystal Flare, and crystalscm! *throws confetti*

Thanks to them, Bermuda's demo is now available with improved grammar, adjusted conversations, and polished scenes! I also fixed some--if not all--lingering bugs which appeared after we updated our Ren'Py software ^.^)/ Feel free to compare the old demo with the new one and tell us your thoughts! 

Like Winged Ones, we will continue to do our best and strive to become better! Most of the time, we usually re-read the script over and over again until we're satisfied, but we'd appreciate it if you can help us find a bug we missed/typo/grammar.

Bermuda is a bigger project than Winged Ones and I like to tweak things here and there as I program, so we'll probably go back and forth a lot, so... yup, going to spend a loooooot of our time proofreading x'D

Lastly, after you reached the end of the demo, there's a a bonus! You can try our puzzle mini game and find a small gift prepared just for you ;) Can you guess what it is?

Download via itch.io : https://sweetchiel.itch.io/nusantara-bermuda-triangle

Looking forward to hear your thoughts!
xoxo,

SweetChiel

P.S. I'm going to play my first ever Escape Room the day after tomorrow! It's called Pandora Experience and I'm going with my boyfriend + 6 friends x'D (8 people in total) We chose Amityville. I hope it's not too scary!
