MC looks good! I'm not an artist, by any means, but I don't think the highlight is too much.

...Why hello there, Tristan.

Yep, the features in the darkest skin tone are much more defined now on my monitor, and she's not looking too highlighted at all. (After switching back and forth between the old and new sprites a bunch of times, the red hair is also looking a little shinier? In a good way!)

EEeeee! The new sprites look incredible! I usually lean more toward dark-haired male characters, but I don't know... Maybe it's the facial hair, but I'm incredibly attracted to Tristan! :oops: His sad little eyes-downcast expression has me melting... He and Lucan look equally as interesting, personality-wise, so I definitely can't wait to start interacting with them both.

Awesome work so far! :mrgreen:

I'm glad she's better now, I was a bit unsure if it was my monitor being off, and just wanted to get confirmation :D Thank you for that guys!

Thank you so much! Glad you're liking the look of Lucan :D It will make up for his rather forward personality!

I'm glad you like the facial hair... I did wonder about having it or not, but liked it too much in the end to get rid of :D

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment! I know you must be seriously busy with your own project (which I'm so excited for you have no idea!).

Update

No art to show, unfortunately, though I actually did start Lucan's first CG last night.

Mostly I've been working on the script though.

Code: Select all

Ren'Py 6.99.12.4.2187 lint report, generated at: Wed Mar 15 09:52:48 2017


Statistics:

The game contains 1,088 dialogue blocks, containing 11,837 words and 61,839
characters, for an average of 10.9 words and 57 characters per block.
I'm up to mid-way through Chapter 4 so far. It's a fast-moving story, which isn't really what I'm normally comfortable with. But, I promised myself to scale everything right back (including writing and art) this year so as I actually make sure to finish this is in a month.

Should still be a fun, romance-y VN though, even if shorter and quicker paced than my imagination would like! :)

Hehehe :D This had me laughing for ages! I'm pretty certain Tristan would very much approve of the reaction...

Update
(I'm so in denial about how fast this month is going...)

So, I've mostly been working on the script, which is going pretty well. I've just finished Tristan's variation of the beginning of Chapter 7, still have to do Lucan's, then actually finish the linear part of the chapter, and then, you know, finish the other chapters and the endings... It's fine, I'm all good *panicked breathing* :D

Code: Select all

Statistics:

The game contains 1,832 dialogue blocks, containing 19,628 words and 102,457
characters, for an average of 10.7 words and 56 characters per block.
But, I've also finally finished the first of Lucan's CGs! Yay!

Here's a snippet preview of it:

Image
A few examples of MC variations.

I didn't realise it was going to take quite so long to do the variations, so I'm behind on CGs. I also did a very silly thing with how I did the CG, so I had to save it awkwardly, which will add to the end game file size (something I will have to seriously think about for Touch of Fae's customistion and CGs...)

Still, it was fun starting the CGs, and it's making the whole VN start to come together :)

Hope everyone's doing well on their projects!

This looks really great!

Being able to customise the protagonists appearance like that is a very neat touch :D
Looking forward to seeing more of the game!

Thank you so much! :D It was a bit of work, but I'm really glad the customisation is in there now.

Update

Sorry for being so quiet on updates. Been knuckling down to try and get as much work done.

I think I may actually get it done in the month! :D

I've nearly done all the CGs. I decided on 3 for each LI, so 6 in total. Only one of the endings for each guy will get a CG (the true love end). It's not as many as I wanted, but at least it's some.

Script is coming on really well.

Code: Select all

Statistics:

The game contains 3,252 dialogue blocks, containing 34,535 words and 179,246
characters, for an average of 10.6 words and 55 characters per block.
I only have to write the two variations of Chapter 11 and the four endings, then I'm done!!! (I wrote the bad ending today).

Really starting to come together now. It's exciting :D

Hope everyone is doing well on their own projects!

I am absolutely in love with your works, and I definitely can't wait for this one!

I love the idea of customization, and Tristan is a hottie with a body.

I'm super excited for this one, as well as Touch of Fae!

Keep it up!
