NSE: Halloween Special - A Generic Ghost Story

#1 Post by fukairi » Sun Nov 05, 2017 7:02 pm

Three friends decide to hold a halloween party in an abandoned mansion that no one seems to have heard of. What could go wrong?

What a painfully long title.

First up, this is a standalone "extra" of an existing webcomic. But it's standalone, so yep. After I succesfully finish this one, I'll work on a bigger dating sim with the same characters.

This is a solo project (with occasional help from friends brainstorming & piano)I have been working on this day and night, so I'm very excited to share some in-progress stuff!

I decided to have the story be told completely through dialogue & CG's, which was the worst idea ever, as my workload is absolutely horrible now. Just today I drew 5 CG's. And this game is maybe only 30 min per run. Oh god :shock:

It has multiple endings (Four) & will be completely free.


CHARACTERS
- All characters have two casual outfits, one formal outfit, one outerwear outfit and a halloween outfit.
- 13+ expressions, three poses per outfit.
Image
Marcus
"Marcus is a gentle giant with a somewhat intimidating look.
He's temperamental, shy and vegan for moral reasons.
Has been described as equal parts dumb and wholesome."

Image
Nem
"Nem is the main character of the comic.
Him and Marcus ran into each other during gym class when they both got lost orienteering.
He's a dramatic, self-assured and sarcastic type of guy.
He's also kind of an asshole"

Image
Erica
"Erica has been friends with Nem since middle school, and she befriended Marcus quickly after Nem did.
She's assertive, extremely direct, sassy, but ultimately cares deeply for others.
...If she likes you, that is"

Backgrounds! (Most building outlines are traced from royalty free images, however everything else is hand-painted)

Cursed CG's!

Progress
CG's = 100%
Sprites = 100%
Backgrounds = 100%
Music = 80%
Programming = 100%
Script = 100%
UI = 20%

Also been slowly adding music...Since I'm a 0 talent at that front it's all royalty free stuff. Having some slight issues with the timing, but nothing major.
