Remember these days (GXB) (Hiatus)

#1 Post by Firefly » Fri Jul 20, 2012 4:35 pm

Days to Stardom title.png
I'm posting this cause i've been working on it since May 2012 and all the cgs ( about 30). This is my first game and i would like some honest critiques of what i have done so far. I have other art styles i'm trying out to make the cgs and sprites look better but those will be for another game i have in mind, after i finish this one of course. :D

Story: You have just been given a scholarship to a well known acadamy for the arts. Music, dancing, acting, literature and art, you can choose your path to determine your life at school. The choices you make determine your ending with the boy in your department. How will you remember your days at school? Will they have a good ending, or happy ending? The super happy ending has an extra scene and cg.

There will now be 6 mini-chibi scenes per character = 30 mini-scenes total
Characters:

Main character: Caitlyn ( name changable)
Family: the only child of a stay at home mother and a work-a-holic father
Was accepted to a prestigous school

He doesn't open up easily or show his emotions openly with the feeling that no one would understand or even be bothered to care. his relationship with his father is strained.

Kyoya normal 2.png
A rebelious student of the literature department. He is not afraid to speak his mind and can be very blunt. If he doesn't like someone he will ignore them. He tends to be quiet and you will often find him on the roof skipping class by sleeping or reading. He happens to be the son of the schools director, and is considered a genius ( which explains the reason he can get away with skipping class on a regular basis.)

The MC seems to always cause trouble for him.

Likes: Art, cats, obedient students
Dislikes: Dogs, lazy students, his fathers spontanious nature.

He is a very colorful individual that enjoys dressing in costume on a daily basis. His favorite costume this year is a cat costume, however he's been known to show up in other costumes including a vampire..... A very loud and cheerful individual, however that makes you question those sorrowful glances he sometimes gives.

I like the plot (even though I'm not really fond of school life :3). The art is ... well... it seems you don't shade colors so the art looks so flat.
And I think you should edit the title, if you have GxB tag already, you don't need to add a "otome game" tag ^^".

Thanks for the heads up



As for my art, you're right i'm not the best at coloring and shading... I'll have to work on it as soon as i get the right program.

Really? Okay.

This looks like it'll be awesome! Ryochiro too! And the other people... And Ryochiro...

But, question, how can all the Cgs be done if you're not done writing it?
Makes me think dialogue will be forced a certain way.

Of course you're the maker so I guess you already have that all figured out ^_^'

Truth be told i only had 30 days for the trial program i was using for the art.... so i kinda had to rush to get the cgs and sprites done. I outlined the story before i drew the cgs to fit the story.

But since i really didn't do the complete dialogue first, you're probably right.

I'm still a rookie when it comes to making games so
I'll be sure to work on the dialogue first next time! :D

The plot seems interesting and the sprites/CG's are ooh-so-sute! Will be checking this out. Are there any updates on this though? Cause it's been a while since the last entry :/
