Black Witch Project Presents

I was always alone in darkness

Only watching as people passed by me.

I made a wish I could live like them


Porcelain Heart is the story of a doll who gets a chance to live. A fickle entity has decided to play a game with her. He will grant her wish but only for 1 month, if she wishes to remain human she has to get a guy to give his heart to her. And so the game of finding love begins.


Characters: Sprite art by icecheetah
Image
Victoria - Our MC who is completely clueless about the world.

Image
Fenris - A fickle entity who enjoys using his magic to play with people for his own amusement

Image
Cade - Serious, and protective older brother who spends all thoughts and energy on getting his little sister to open herself back up to the world.

Image
Kari - Cade's younger sister, she doesn't open her heart to anyone but her brother.

Image
Lei - Carefree waiter who hides behind a tough serious persona at work so he can move up in the world.

Image
Psyche - Kind waitress who enjoys laughing an smiling a lot, but her smiles are just to cover up the pain she holds.

Good luck writing this, man! It sounds pretty cute (well, getting a guy to give his heart) so far.
Tell the sprite artist that they look pretty good.
Looking forward to any updates and whatnot!

Yeah, kind of throwing myself completing into writing world, and with the way my health and energy keeps fluctuating, I'll probably need all the luck I can get.

Progress update.

First route has a good chunk done now, I'd say maybe 25%? (Very rough guess) Which is pretty darn good if I say so myself since I was at like 5% yesterday.

Total word count is around 23,000 right now.

Also first music track, and I'm in love with it. Can't stop listening.

Anyway, back to writing.

Will the sprites be shaded in because they look flat. The lines are also kinda wobbly and uneven.

We agreed that I should priortise getting sprites done over shading, in case, y'know, life happens and I end up busy. Though I do hope that I get to shade them since I like shading!
As for the uneven lines, I can only try and be more careful.

Due to my deteriorating health, I'm afraid the full vn will not be finished for NaNo. It is simply not possible with the way things are going health-wise, and at present it shows no sign of getting better before March ends.

So regretfully, I have no choice but to announce that the full vn will not be release at NaNo's end, and is more likely to be release April/May (providing health improves).

However!

A demo per say, containing the common route will be released for NaNo, at March's end.


Look forward to it.

Ah, darn, I hope you get better soon!

Still, a demo should be interesting. And it's better to take your time making it than to rush things, anyway.

Thanks. And yep, having more time just allows us in the full vn to have more polished writing, cgs, music, and extras.

Kari and Lei added to the top post.

Been a long road. But finally after all the health problems (Still ongoing) and after taking it easy to try and not kill myself.

THE DEMO IS COMPLETE!

http://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewto ... 45&t=21198

All comments are welcome. I hope you enjoy.

Also if it is not too much trouble can this thread be moved into the WIP main area, since NaNo is over, and well we are still working on it.
