█▓▒░ Lamest of Lame ░▒▓█ [Parody, Comedy] NaNoRenO 2017

#1 Post by mugenjohncel » Thu Mar 02, 2017 11:06 am

(Heavy Sigh)

In what can be best described as a sad NaNoRenO tradition for me where I found myself working alone again after attempting to contact a ton of people... so uh... (looks at the mirror) Cheer up!... let's go with plan B... yes, I'll be joining NaNoRenO 2017. My entry would be titled Lamest of Lame, a title whose a direct anagram of Tales of Lemma, one of the first pure breed Western made Visual Novel that came from the west. It's so ancient that I doubt anyone here can remember it so I'm linking it here... https://vndb.org/v6333

There is modern remake of it called Lemmas Tales over here... viewtopic.php?f=11&t=18887

I shall post teaser images when they're done but since I plan to do this fair and square within the allotted time, there will be some compromises... prepare for my horrible art...

Music?... Umm... Maybe TAMSOFT or Kevin MacLeod...

Backgrounds?... Yeah, I'm an architect... let's use Sketchup... and model an entire forest... :?

GUI?... Copy and paste from a past project, flap a new logo, job done!...

Writing?... Has anyone really been far even as decided what to do more like?... probably not but you get the idea.

And thus with a very sour and sad lonely tone... let my NaNoRenO suffering begin... :|

It's UNCLE MUGEN!

I'm so excited to see a new project from you! Who knew that Tales of Lemma lent itself so well to such an anagram. xD

I'll be following your project's development closely. Can't wait to play!

UNCLE MUGENNNN

That anagram is simultaneously awesome (because it exists) and kind of lame sad. Meaning, it's terrific.

I'm definitely a sucker for parody/comedy games, so I'll keep an eye on this. Good luck! sorry to hear you couldn't get anyone to join your team OTL

Obligatory teaser:

How to make backgrounds, Uncle Mugen style...

Step 1:
Use sketchup
Image

Step 2:
A̗̣b̭̤̺͓̘̖͟u̫s̛̩̜e͕ ̮M̟͉̠̬̣ag̶̙̺͈͉͇̭e̴͕c̢̮͔̫̰̦̮ͅṟ̣̟̼͜a̺̻̳̰͝f̖t̀ ̸͍a̭̰̹̯̺̙̺n̵̖̖̤̘d̮͍̭̲ ̵̺̦̟̼P̼̭̻̮͍̮h̹̠̪̰̩̥o͚t͇̹͈͠ǫ͉ṣ͍h̷̩̼̼͔o̘̤̤p̗͈ ͈̭̙̫͚̼t̝͘o͓ ̙h̢̞ę̥̼̼͙̮̯lͅl͎͕͍̤͚ ̠̖̤͎̬̜̘ḁ̜̟̕n̲̫̭̳̭͘d̥͚̞̬ ̜͙̙̘̬̤b̖̗́a̖͎̟̙c͔̯̪k̞̭̰̗

And done

Oh and I've reduced the resolution to 1280 x 720 because...

Code: Select all

    config.screen_width = 3840
    config.screen_height = 2160
#is simply too much

Yep... this year's NaNoRenO will be a personal test to see how much compromise (or rather how low) I can set the quality of my work enough to satisfy me while getting it done in time for the deadline... for artwork... I went with large lazy simple two tone style... forget polish... there is simply no time... draw it, color it, job done... repeat... :D

After looking really close at the BG's... I decided to dumb down the details since they clash too much with the simple sprites so this is the result of the new workflow...
