Swan's Melody [2012] - On Hiatus

#1 Post by sake-bento » Thu Mar 01, 2012 5:35 pm

We're doing a NaNo game. Because we don't have enough self control to fill a thimble. orz Actually, this is something we've been planning for a while, so we figured we'd use NaNoRenO as an excuse to at least complete a polished demo. Here's a story about adorable girls and their lives.

Edit: This project is currently on hiatus, but please look forward to other works by Deji and sakevisual.

Image
Patty - The "ring leader" of the group. She's a little bit clumsy and air-headed, but she's very determined, and she loves helping people.

Image
Astrid - Astrid has a sharp tongue, and she takes everything very seriously. Somewhat of a loner until she gets involved with the other girls. There's a little (or a lot) of tsun tsun in her.

Image
Marion - An energetic girl who loves being with her friends. She also reads a lot.

Image
Teresia - A quiet and gentle soul. Enjoys such pursuits as flower arrangement, tea time, and archery.

This looks adorable. I love reading stories about groups of friends and their random adventures in day-to-day life, so I'll be looking forward to it. :3

I played with the uniform colors, but I'm still not sure which one I like best.

Personally like the top one more.

So what genre is this? Just slice-of-life?

Oooo, how cute~

I like the dark grey uniform, I think it has a nicer balance of contrast.

I'm going to have to go with the second uniform because it's more distinctive. The gray/white uniforms have been overdone a bit, I think, and I just really love how that light blue goes with the jacket!

I have a feeling that this is not going to be a slice of life story, or not a typical slice of life story in the least...

I like both uniforms, but the first one looks better in my opinion.
Hmm, although this appears to be a cute slice of life story, the fact that the title is 'Swan Song' makes me think there could be something deeper/darker going on.. (´・ω・`;)

The gray one looks better to me since the ribbon matches with Patty's hair pieces. 'Course, that won't apply to all of them, but my vote goes to the gray uniform anyway.

BTW, what genre? Looks like a Slice-of-Life with some focus on Friendship, but there's probably more.

I'd say grey definitely looks the coolest out of the two. The other one looks less original. That said, they both look nice. :lol:

Although I liked both, I'd go with the gray one :)

Deep in my heart, I hope to see the "Breakdance!" option in the first choice of the game :D

Oh, gray has the most votes!
I'll try with that once I make the sketches/placeholders for the girls during the weekend (:

Thanks for the support so far, everybody!

We hope you'll enjoy the den once we finish it <3 We've been brainstorming a lot and we're really excited about this! :D

You had me at "adorable girls and their lives". 8D

I am a sucker for slice of life, and while it may take a turn away from it I like the concept and designs so much already that I'd play it anyway! (also, it is from you guys. I always love your games.)

There's only one question to ask: Will break dancing be involved?
