The Knife of the Traitor [2012]_DONE!...Now I can sleep!

#1 Post by clua » Fri Mar 02, 2012 11:27 pm

...Kill me I should be doing the hurtful wall but since this is a challenge only for this month..I will give it a try

SPECS:

The Knife of the Traitor
Comedy/Otome ish/Mystery
Free or Comercial? >> Free!
Team>>
Clua: Original story/Art/ Sh*t programing.
Anarchy: Proofreader / Co-writter / Savior Programmer.
Length>>almost half an hour to get any ending(DO NOT SKIP!)
Routes to follow(Obtainable characters)>> 4
Endings>>7
Lint says the following:

Code: Select all

The game contains 1,168 screens of dialogue.
These screens contain a total of 8,623 words,
for an average of 7.4 words per screen.
The game contains 15 menus.
So this is a very very short and simple VN...Mainly influenced of my wasted time as a kid playing rpgs...I wanted to catch the feeling of mute MC...I think there are games that exploit them very well(Like Legend of Legaia or Okami) in a humorous way.


The Knife of the Traitor(Comedy, Romance?)
Lady Os has awaken from her slumber of four years, with a knife across her neck.
Someone tried to kill her and she cant remember a thing of what happened that day, or anything else.
With the help of her servant Corvus, she will explore the old tower she is traped, in search of clues and find the culprit.

I killed all spoilers hehe

This looks really cool. I like how she's just chilling with the knife in her neck like "yeah, I'm fine : |" Is the little bird a familiar?

This is really cool! Your art style is awesome - I love what you drew even though the theme goes way against what I prefer. The story sounds interesting too. Really looking forward to it!

XD Yes he is indiferent of most of the things what happens on the game...Corvus is a break of her coldness
And well, He is just another slave/servant! He actually has a human form also But I will draw that at last..

Thank you so much! I think this is the kind of theme I enjoy most...I been working till nonstop ºqº...I hope I dont meet lazyness in the half of the road(Like most of times..)
Im looking forward to your project also! I wish I could know how to program better...I would love to do more things but each time I mess with codes It gives me headaches...orz

welp I spent my afternoon trying to add the Gallery and the Music Room to the VN, but I think I did something wrong because It doesnt work(Maybe because the custom menus)
Im doing backgrounds also.This is where Os awakes...That column..Kill it with fire!
Now I see it....The proportions are so wrong ugh..

These character descriptions are just perfect. It's like I know them already O: /end sarcasm.

Something about your art style just pulls me in. It's charming and unique, plus the designs are really cool :3 The backgrounds are coming along nicely too, though the first one (outside of the castle with blue sky) looks a little out of place. Compared to the others, it's unusually bright. Might be the sky, so a tad darker could help? Just my opinion :/

XD--Sorry! I will update their profiles with a little info of them.
about that background, I think I might standart the sky on all bgs...the reason that it looked shiny is because it was the watchtower and the character that lives there is nuts(Lilja) I wanted to make it look different from the other ones..But now that you point that It really looks out of place..orz...

I think...Im understanding the code more...Here is a chart of the flow of the game..Its quite simple to tell the truth(I dont have a head to make it more complex...;_;)

Now how I will prog this...?

Perhaps if you keep the brightness but change the hue to pink or purple or orange, it would fit in more with the other bg but still look special?

This is the kitchen(horrible shelfs..)....and..dsdsadsa...Such a quality Wacom..My Bamboo its having issues and It just have one year and a half!

Thank you so much for your support! ;_;! Seen so much people involved on this event motivates me a lot!

Im posting some stuff I did yesterday...The bg of the jukebox and Im doing the bg of the cg gallery right now..Also as suggested I changed the watchtower bg just to fit more with the others(On color mostly)!
