The Silent Column - Prototype [supernatural][mystery][sci fi][fantasy]

#1 Post by SelLi » Sun Oct 01, 2017 4:56 pm

This is a fairly short visual novel about mysteries, mist, the end of the world, multiverse theory, mental illness, as well as other things.
It contains some flashing lights which may cause seizures.
This was previously called The Silent Column - Chapter One - Pre-Alpha but has since been retitled The Silent Column - Prototype, which is now a more appropriate title.

I continue to work on The Silent Column and you can follow its development on my website at http://hazemuth.weebly.com/ .
To those of you who play this prototype, I hope you enjoy.

How the hell there is no reply? For all I saw here, this and Synergia are the two project that touch me the most.

I will be frank, I haven't finish to read to chapter 1 yet. But I wanted to comment before, question to be able to give a before and after, to show the evolution of my impression about the presentation to what is actually the project at the end. So that will be a little fast.

Most important, I want to say that for what I saw, everything is top freakin' notch. The atmosphere and feeling are pretty interesting, and the two music you have really help to create this mood. (what program did you use to compose ?). There is not to many instrument and the length and silence of each music note really is simple and mature in their use. You didn't want to do something TO big.
The art are interesting and I love them. They seem childish but create an important discomfort at the same time. The eyes with ball of light is a really good idea of yours to create this feeling. It seem unhealthy and sane at the same time.
And for all I read, the choice of word is interesting. I liked the intro with the robot. Some poetry !

Oh yes. Is this normal that I can access your script? You forget to ask Ren'py to code them to .rpa or it's a choice of yours ?

Well, see ya when I will have read everything of this first chapter !

Thank you very much! Your feedback means a lot to me. Seriously... <3
To compose the music, I record myself playing a Yamaha MX 49 synthesizer with Audacity. Then I edit it with Audacity by isolating parts I like and sometimes moving things around.
Thanks for what you said about the eyes- it was flattering and interesting.
I've never really released a Ren'Py game before, so you can just access the script because I don't know how to properly release things, yet. :p
Please enjoy yourself.

Hi everyone, I decided that I'm only going to be posting an update about The Silent Column once every two months, so don't worry that I'm not posting more often.
I decided that in December, so I'll be posting an update February 1st. See you then. :)

I'm no longer going to be creating The Silent Column as an episodic visual novel. This thread has changed from TSC - Chapter One Demo to TSC - Prototype Demo.
I talk more about everything in the video I made, The Silent Column - February update video 2018, which can be seen here:
