Without a Voice [Yuri Jam 2016]

Image
In the depths of a dark and unforgiving forest, an exiled princess whiles her time in solitude.
For a girl raised in the lap of comfort, the woods are impossibly harsh, and day-to-day survival
is the most she can manage. One day, however, a visitor appears at her cottage—a mysterious,
beautiful maiden—and throws her world out of its already delicate alignment. The princess is
instantly captivated by this stranger, and begins to fancy herself the heroine of a fairytale, even
as the maiden proves herself to be less and less of a fantasy.

Foolish princess. She should know by now that her life is no fairytale.

In seven days, the wheel of fate will splinter. Seven days, for better or worse...
Without a Voice is a short, free (PWYW for tips) VN being developed for Yuri Game Jam 2016 by (read as "L squared"). The writing/programming is being done by Lorelei, while the art, design, and graphical assets are by Laniessa.

CHARACTERS

Image

Cassidy, the protagonist. A exiled princess and the eldest child of the Veromere royal family.
Cassidy is nice, but rather clueless and struggles to live on her own due to her pampered upbringing.

Image

Elowen, the mysterious beauty who appears before Cassidy one day. While at a glance she is
graceful and beautiful in an otherworldly way, she is also quick to anger and rather self-centered.
Sometimes, she becomes quiet and a little gloomy when staring out at the woods outside the cottage windows...

!!!!! This looks so pretty and beautiful so far!!! The plot is intriguing as well (mostly because I am lowkey into drama surrounding royalty ??) I'm excited for this and I can't wait to see more of it!

This looks lovely. The character design is beautiful - aesthetically appealing, while also nicely indicative of their personalities. The logo and title are also intriguing to me.

Good luck with the jam!

^0^ Thank you everyone for the support!!! I'm working hard to make this really pretty!! We're about a week in so I'll give a quick progress report on my side:
- Sprites are fully sketched and prepped for painting!
- Cassidy's hair is all painted in! I'm working on the rest now.
- One background is done! Most of the other backgrounds have been prepped for me to paint over! (We're going with painted over photos to save time.)

My plan is to have all the sprites done in the next two days? All the backgrounds by the end of week 2, and then spend the rest of the time doing tons of CG/extra art >w<

@audrenes: //// aaa thank you ;v; I love the story very much and I hope you enjoy!!!

@BáiYù: KJKSLADNM OMG I'm glad you like the designs!!!

@RedOwl: Thank you very much!! I'm glad the logo is interesting ;;

@Zelan: (insert cheesy wink) I hope you enjoy our final game!!

Those sprites, those backgrounds... I wanna see more :lol: . I know I've seen some WIP on Twitter but you should post more on this topic, ahah.
Anyway, the story seems very intriguing and I can't wait to play this entry!

It's been a while since our last update! I'm just chiming in to say that all core assets are done - character sprites, backgrounds and the CGs!

Image

Here's a sneak peek at 4 of the 8 CGs ^0^

There's still a bit of work left on the visual side - I'm going to design a custom UI for the game, and I've got a couple of extra pieces of art that I want to finish!
