Hello guys!
We’re starting in NaNoRenO 2018 as a pair of friends. Our goal this month would be developing short project. We have no idea if we can finish whole thing, but beta version that is playable will be our sign of success. After march we plan to polish project up and translate it to english. Wish us luck!

Thank you a lot!
Reading of Kradri name would be: (like k in sKy)-ra(like a god RA)- D(accented)-ri(like in RIver) - should sound rather harsh in reading.

Those backgrounds are absolutely gorgeous. c: I'm curious about the symbols on the wall in the first two.

I'm really glad to hear your kind words Zelan, That's big motivation! All symbols/runes that are present in locations indicates spells/magic and have a role in plot ;)

Abbie is now back from her holidays. She made progress on logo (updated in first post if you want to check it out) and start sketching sprites

Image

I'm pushing backgrounds and there is only one more 'MUST BE' location on my to do list! However i need some more description from Abbie so it will be finished in later date... but nevertheless it's huge progress ^^

I love the forest background! It's a setting that I see used a lot in VNs but I never get tired of it, I love seeing how different artists draw their forests. The logo is cool, too, I like the antlers at the bottom.

Since last update I’ve worked on coding, so today i can share this screenshots with You.
I’ve learned a lot of things and resolved some technical problems during these days, so I hope that from now on there wont be any struggles:). Finaly last background is finished and we move on sprites departament. Hopefully next screenshot will be with finished Arion sprite.

For gui we’re using https://gumroad.com/l/POpwT . It’s amazing piece from Luna Chai Li who was kind enough to help me with some difficulties

Thank you Zelan for your support!<3

ImageStatus UpdateImage

Hello guys, Abbie here.

Loreen and I had busy holidays, but we're going to wrap up demo build of Arrears and continue our work here after march.

Our NanoRenO build will be available on itch.io soon.

It will consist of alfa part one of polish script (no translation for now). It wasn't spell checked and will be probably rewritten (at least partially), there will be some changes in coding and scene composition later too.

It's going to be very raw and unpolished, but we want to share how far we manage to go during this month. It was great experience to work on this project this month and we still hope it will turn to enjoyable short story, even if we didn't finish everything in March.

We might move progress of our project from Nanoreno thread to regular 'in progress' subforum.

Thank you for all the support along the way and hope to see you soon too~
