Ruins of Ralumnea [Fantasy/Story-Driven]

#1 Post by Plueschkatze » Wed Mar 01, 2017 12:12 pm

Ruins of Ralumnea
[Ra|lum|nea]

Story:

Ever since Ines lost her parents in a dragon attack,
she's been slaying all kinds of monsters as part of Grimea, the monster hunter's guild.
Now, she and her mentor have been ordered to investigate the increasing number of attacks
at the edge of a huge forest - and soon, Ines will discover that there's more to this
than she would ever have expected. This old forest has a well kept secret...

Questions:

1. Does this sound interesting to you?
2. What would you expect from this game after reading this?
3. How do you feel about VNs that are not focused on romance/dating? Do you usually prefer dating VNs?

Oh, the small taster sounds pretty cool! Looking forward to finding out more, definitely sounds like something to keep an eye on :)

Good luck with the project!

This project looks very interesting! I love to play Monster Hunter :D so story like this is one of my favorites.
Would there be any monsters/wild animals shown in the VN? Can't wait to see how the story unfolds, Wish you all the luck!

Hi YuukiCrossPudding!

Haha, my sister is a big Monster Hunter fan, too. But this not focus on the monsterr hunting part
(I think an action rpg would do this job better, haha) but on the characters.
But I plan to show at least some creatures. (Not sure of they'll be implemented in the Nanoreno alpha build
or the complete version, since I might need some extra time to finish the game afterwards.

@Harliqueen
Thank you! :)

End of day 2!

Story is written around 10-15%
And I started sprite sketches!
Here are sketches for 3 of 4 characters I'd need to tell my story.


Image
From left to right: Master (he still needs a name!), Phyrria and Ines!

There still are some mistakes I need to fix, haha. Masters head is a little to large and other stuff.
And yes, this sketch is messy as hell, haha. But they always look that way~ at least in an early to mid stage,
while I'm still exploring what I like and what I don't!

I'll be waiting for the releases then! I think this has great potential ♡

Oh my gosh! The characters are sooo cute, I love the art style and especially Phyrria design. Is she an elf? :o
Or maybe that's just her hair sticking out, but she's still so cuteee ♡

Yes, Phyrria is indeed an elvish girl! :)
UPDATE:

I've spend the weekend with my family and the new Zelda game~ so not much progress!
But I'm back to work on this now.

I'll post an update on the characters, as soon as I'm done with the clean up work.
Also I'm writing down the script atm.
I'll need to look for a proofreader afterwards, to make sure that there are less mistakes~
Especially since it's not my first language.

Laurence finished the original soundtrack and I really love it. He did such a great job on this!

Could get myself away from Zelda BOTW for a few hours to work on this project, haha!
... That game is way to addicting.

I present the outlines of one of the 4 characters.
The old Lady and mayor of the small forest town!
Some details might still change through.

Haha you might be sick of me by now but I wouldn't actually mind doing some proofreading if you want! :p

The old lady / mayor is looking great.

@Laurence: That's nice of you! And I'm not sick of you! Don't worry, haha! :)

Reworked the summary/log line:

Ever since Ines lost her parents in a dragon attack,
she's been slaying all kinds of monsters as part of Grimea, the monster hunter's guild.
Now, she and her mentor have been ordered to investigate the increasing number of attacks
at the edge of a huge forest - and soon, Ines will discover that there's more to this
than she would ever have expected. This old forest has a well kept secret...

Questions:

1. Does this sound interesting to you?
2. What would you expect from this game after reading this?
3. How do you feel about VNs that are not focused on romance/dating? Do you usually prefer dating VNs?


Logo

Started playing around with some ideas for the Logo~

Characters

And continued outlining the characters~ here's a WIP of the mentor!

Oooh! Nice updates, I like the details on the mayor clothes <3

1. Does this sound interesting to you?
Of course, all fantasy with monster and guild like thing is one of my favorites

2. What would you expect from this game after reading this?
I'd love to see the fantasy world in the story, what will it be like? The monsters and the characters!

3. How do you feel about VNs that are not focused on romance/dating? Do you usually prefer dating VNs?
Usually I'd prefer VNs that focused on the story and not the dating (if the game only focus on chasing partners then it'll be a bit boring I guess?) and if it does have dating I'd still enjoy them if the story is good!

Also here's a little fanart for Master (He's so charming!)

All of the logos look really beautiful too. Can't you just use all eight of them, like that? haha :p
