Charlatans[KN] [NaNoRenO 2015]COMPLETE!

....Why I am doing this :A:
After the death of her father, Karon is now one of the richest woman in the country. But she can't handle the grief of loosing her beloved one. She spends her days going to plebeian shows trying to dissipate her mind and to avoid the several marriage proposals of hungry of money men. One of the shows happen to be run by Sabine, a man that says he can speak with the dead. Karon decides to be part of the show when she is asked to, but quickly gets fed up with it. On her way down the stage she meets Priam, Sabine's twin sister. As Priam demostrates to be way more competent than her brother, she takes advantage of Karon's curiosity of what lies beyond the death by secretly making her the test subject of each experiment she performs.

:Characters:


Image
"Piss off, mud licker!"
Age:21
Our protagonist. She got a very sharp tongue and it's on the verge of hating men(Although there is just one man she
won't hate no matter what)
Offers to help Priam on her experiments.

Image
"What I want to know if there is an afterlife worth to overcome sadness."
Age: 29
A kinda quirk woman that wears men clothing just because she likes to call attention(But it seems it does otherwise...)
Is stuck with her good for nothing twin brother Sabine; she doesn't think twice to debunk his show.
She is fixated with the thoughts of what lies beyond the death.

Image
"...I see it."
Age: 29
Priam's twin brother.
He is said to speak with the dead, but we all know this game is called Charlatans.

Image
"It's ok to cry, you know? But I hate when people piss on the stage."
Age:26
The show's janitor. Is in love with Priam, but she won't look at him like that because he is poor.

Progress
Script:60%(I'm just writting here almost zero prog Coding at last> 30%)
Base sprites:(base sprites 8/9)
Sprite variations and expresions: 50%
Backgrounds:(2/8?)
CGs and other significant art: 40%(Did a rought sketch of every cg)
GUI:100%(Added also extra screen/Just need to fix some tiny things)
Music:20%
Extras: 50%(wrote both stories. Will add extra art if I got time)

Art and everything else(except music) will be done by me ;A; I will be looking for someone to proofread my scrip, as you know that
english is not my first language. But this will be requested when I'm done with the script.

This is ment to be very very short! This is one of the two ideas I had sitting since last year ;A;
I'm still deciding the tone of the game, I was aiming for something a tad darker but I always
end up with joke scripts...

Thank you everyone for your kind words! ;A;

sorani
Omg I hope I manage to finish it :A: My original idea had choices...But I think it's better to keep this simple

Camille
I hope that too! haha but seen everybody working will keep me motivated XD

15385bic
Ahaha I wanted since last year, I even had the idea. But that one game will be hopefully for next year.

Godline
XD I'm so eager to write dialogues between Karon and Priam!

Harliqueen
I'm using actually references from a book(Costumes from the world) my sis gifted to me last year. But I'm adding
tiny personal details on them haha. The ones that are heavily referenced are Priam's and Sabine's clothes.

I've updated everyone's final sprite! I just finished Virgil.

BUT there are some few more characters to do. Note that I will not post them because they are either minor characters or spoilers.

Thank you! I'm glad you consider Karon cute hehe.

Camille
Ehehehe...


Speaking of green hair, I'm working on Karon's father now. I was out almost all day and I couldn't work a lot today :A:
Image
(I'm doing lineart on fire alpaca :u)
After that I need to do 3 more sprites and I believe that's all the characters I need to be on scene. The game will have a few cgs but a tons of sprite variations! I got exited but now I'm scared because they might be too much :A:
Oh yeah! I got into writing too, but it's too early to show lint.

This seems like it could be interesting.

One note: Priam is a masculine name. Sabine is a woman's name. So . . . you may want to consider letting those two exchange names.

XD I know! Priam was one of the kings of Troy. To be honest I don't mind to name my female characters with masculine names and vice versa. I hope this doesn't bother anybody much...

It's not something I would do on a whim, but if that's what you want, go for it. I just wasn't sure if it was a mix-up or intentional.

Thank you for your concern! I research a little about the names of my characters before adding them.
Btw Karon is also a masculine name if you consider it's Karonte*highlight to see.

I'm working on the GUI today. I don't want to spend much time on it, so I will add whatever I have for today and
fix everything if I have time later.
I got the main menu done, nothing too fancy :A:

I'm on options menu now.

Karon's hair is simply amazing :')! Priam is my favourite though, she looks so cool and gorgeous; her outfit is the coolest.

Good idea on going for a linear novel btw, it'll save you a ton of work and allow you to focus more on the fun parts!
