Follow me on twitter for updates | Marigold's Twitter Moment | Ko-fi (If you want to show support for my tiny game dev adventures)

Marigold is now available in itchio download here!

Synopsis:

Lost in space and just moments away from death.
What do you do?


Feature:
Multiple Endings
Determine bits of the Protagonist's past
Renameable protag
Aliens
An Eldritch


Extra:
Hello, Hello! I'm back with a 3rd game. Who knew haha.
SoulsoftEA roped me into trying barajam 2019! I don't usually draw buff guys soo I decided to try my hand at a simple sci-fi game! Just like Doll, there will be multiple endings and be a short game. The game may contain themes or humor that is not suitable for younger audience though I am not sure of its rating yet? I guess just a warning in advance that the game contains some depressive theme.

Unofficially, I call or refer the protag as "Felix"...his unofficial full name is "Felix 'Mari' Carreon", because it feels too cold to keep calling him as "Marigold's protag".

Well here's hoping I can make it to the jam deadline!
Thank you for reading this far! As always <3 Tell a friend, like, retweet or buy me a ko-fi is appreciated.

Haha I hadn't known that I had "roped" anyone but if that's the case I'm glad I did. =p

Anyways, Marigold sounds like a great first jump into the world of bara for you, and seriously it's a cool mix of something...as in you have this buff protag, but there's something very artsy, dreamlike but also sad about it. Usually in bara, alot of it focuses on the physical and light raunchy themes. So I think your well managed short entry (you have a bunch of exp with VN's from what I've noticed) will be an cool interesting taste of something different among the jam submissions this year.

Goodluck! =D

Marigold's status update

Im not sure if i'll be able to do weekly updates since I'm going at a much slower pace to avoid burn out too soon.
Which is alright! Thing have been looking up before the year ends c:

Im excited to show Marigold's mainmenu art and gui so far!
I wanted felix's sprite to move a bit like shift pose a bit and it's been so fun seeing him do that with some of his lines
he feels more "animated" somehow!
he has a bit more expression than my other protags and im excited to see it play out

Hi guys!! it's been a long time since i posted and update in marigold's thread.
I dropped by to mention i was able to finish part of marigold for barajam and made it in time!
I took a short break, then after that I started to rework the script to smoothen it out.
If you like, the game can be downloaded and played here https://cervineprince.itch.io/marigold-vn
or you could wait for the revised version!
Here's a sample below where the old scrip + art side by side with the improved art + script c:

Hello!
It's been a long time since my last update here, but i dropped by to say that development is still ongoing. I mainly concentrate updating my twitter and sometimes write devlogs in Mari's itch page.

I've been working on Marigold on my spare time and I believe Marigold is nearing completion! Around 80% of the artworks are now done. Although I mentioned in my twitter that I hoped to finish the cgs during the weekend. i haven't been able to finish the cgs as I hope; I will still proceed with coding where I left off.

I'm also excited to show off a cg that I'm really happy with! There are many cgs I love, but this is one of my favorites.
