Letters for You [KN] [2012] (Finished!)

#1 Post by Patty » Fri Mar 09, 2012 10:28 pm

Letters for You is a story about a mail carrier and a girl's encounter with each other, and how they affect each other in their own little ways.

It's summer, and Tegami's off as usual, delivering letters back and forth in their small town. This job leads him to encounter Sayaka, a grouchy girl who doesn't want to accept anything he delivers.
As Tegami tries to persuade the girl through various meetings, they get to know each other. What initially seems to be a disagreeable person is actually well-mannered.

Of course, a road wouldn't be complete without some bumps and obstacles along the way.


Characters


Image
Narazaki Sayaka - Sayaka is a very sarcastic girl who makes Tegami's job difficult. She's direct and a bit grouchy, but overall a good person.


Image
Fujimoto Tegami - Tegami is a mail carrier who delivers special letters (invitations, reports, military documents, and letters to the soon to die). On one of his deliveries, he meets Sayaka, a girl who is determined not to accept anything he delivers. He's a cheerful boy who is determined to get Sayaka to accept the deliveries.

Hm... looks interesting. I'm wondering why Sayaka won't take anything from Tegami (maybe she's secretly a dog? And a female one at that... *shot*).

Art looks good, although I see that both of their facial structures are the same. Sayaka also has a line from her neck in her face too, so take another look at the sprites before you declare them finished.

Thank you for the compliment! ^///^ I'm still fixing their sprites, so rest assured those aren't final. Thank you for pointing out some errors, I really appreciate it. :D

I know there's an anime called Tegami Batchi, but I haven't watched it yet. XD Thank you, and I wish you luck on your project as well! :)

Thank you! <3 I'm also looking forward to Nanolife. I especially love the GUI (the MMOish concept). Your concept art is adorable. :)

Sorry for the double post, but I'd like to update with the picture of the main menu! :D

Sorry if it's a bit small, it's a preview image. ^^;;

Since Main Menu is done, and proofreading, it's off to art! :D

Great idea for the menu, and it looks beautiful. Good job!
Keep your script in your Dropbox folder.
It allows you to share files with your team, keeps backups of previous versions, and is ridiculously easy to use.

Progress update! :)

Sprites are all done! BGs are almost done (photographs courtesy of Celianna). After BGs, I'll tackle CGs.
Music and SFX have been assembled, and there's also a textbox now.
Steadily making progress. Awesome. :)

Sprite redone:

Sayaka's not as grumpy here ^^

I wonder where Tegami gets all that energy. I can use some of it too. =.=

Progress update: Final proofreading/some revisions done! :) Testing has also gone underway. Just need to finish the CGs (since the demo had placeholders), polish up everything, and fix the errors some testers specified. :)

Screenshot:

Sorry for the small size... figured having the 800X600 screenshot would be a bit bulky in the thread...
Any feedback on the screenshot? Like textbox, font, or just anything. :P

The background is Celianna's. :3

Hmm, sprites are nice, have you others expressions ?

About your screen, I think probably the slighty pink of the text box is in my opinion a bit strange on this "real" color background, a more neutral ton could be better. Like I don't know, something into the belt of Sayaka and her top.
Same thing for the name color, I don't know how are the colors in the rest of the game, but on this screenshoot a duller color may also give more harmony (like the red in shadow from her shoulders).

Anyway, good luck to end your project in time~

I like to create things. Mostly on the music side.

Thanks, everyone! Sorry, wasn't able to reply to some, but I really appreciate your input and opinion. :)

Thank you for the input! :) Looking at it again... Yeah, the pink and the textbox is a bit...off. I'll try something like the paper of the letter in the main menu. :D

And yeah, there are other expressions. ^_^
