Caramel Mokaccino Demo [Late NaNo2016] ALPHA RELEASE! :D

THE ALPHA DEMO IS OUT!

  • Caramel Mokaccino is a slice of life/friendship GxB/G story being developed by Apple Cider.

    During the month of March (and April :'D) we will be putting together our official demo for the game, which will cover about 10 days of in-game time. We'll be doing any other necessary polishing during April (and May >>; ) in preparation of the launch of our Kickstarter campaign for the full game.

    You can find more info on our outdated Prefundia page, here: http://prefundia.com/projects/view/cara ... cino/3214/

  • Penelope Miller (Penny), an 18 year old girl, moves back to the city she grew up in to attend college.

    When she first arrives, she finds lodging with the Salviatis, a family who has been friends with her own for many years, but she soon begins to feel out of place. Determined to find the means to live on her own, she applies for a part-time job at Caramel Mokaccino, a café close to campus that is owned by a member of the Salviati family.

    As she settles into her new life, she meets lots of new friends, both at school and at work. As time goes by she gets to know them better, and helps each of them to solve the problems that arise in their daily lives.

    Your job as the player is to guide Penny through this new life, to help her learn more about the people around her and grow close to them, to learn about the troubles in their lives. It won't be easy, but with care it may lead to new bonds of friendship. Or perhaps even romance?

YES! I love you guys, so I can't wait to play this! There are so many cute characters, but I like Ian the most. I want to romance him and his disgruntled attitude so bad.

I'm looking forward to playing this! There's something about the design of coffee shops that attracts me to them--And I don't even drink coffee! XD

Just look at that gang of cuties! The art for this is adorable and the story sounds as sweet as the title.

Ahh! Thanks for the comments and support so far everybody! We're really excited to start working! :D

Day one was spent mostly setting up the WIP threads, gathering the team members contact info and getting together.
Also GUI-ing and some sketching!

We'll release the GUI later on (recolored, most likely), since the full game will have a GUI actually designed by a decent GUI artist, not... me xD (this time around we didn't have the budget to get a dedicated GUI artist for NaNo ;v; The woes of commercial game projects without an actual budget~ x'D )

Kitty was busy working yesterday AND GETTING ENGAGED!!! :D So she'll be slow at writing this week.

Konett is crying over my GUI and getting it ready for coding, so we can get it out of the way :)

Everybody else is waiting on either assets to get started or descriptions and references to be gathered.

Day 2 will be spent doing more fullbody character sketching, getting the references for Ryuushiro and Nuge for BG and CG sketches respectively, and hopefully starting with sketching the character sprites!

Good luck on the nano! I'm gonna be doing a jam (you guys would probably qualify for it too with this, Sugar Sweets and Jam!) with a small group and I hope ours looks as fun as yours does!

I've been following you on social media for a while and have seen Caramel Mokaccino stuff, so seeing it finally making it into an actual game (I mean, demo for now xD) is great!

Good luck with it! I'm so excited omg
