Tailor Tales [GxB] [100% free]

#1 Post by Celianna » Fri Aug 12, 2011 1:45 am


Hi there everyone! I'm Celianna, and been developing Tailor Tales for a while now, though I don't really have much to show for how long it's been in development. About 90% of the graphics were made by me, including all portraits, sprites and most of the tiles.

Tailor Tales is a romance game heavily inspired by Harvest Moon, and a bit from Animal Crossing, being made with RPG Maker VX. You play as a tailor and make clothes while you live your life in the town of Claner. You can chat with NPCs, and court 5 of them - which is really the main part of Tailor Tales. The plot isn't that important, but you meet a fox who is actually a human, cursed by a gypsy and you have to help him turn back into a human.

It is not a visual novel that seems to be very popular in these forums (I personally can't play them, I like having the freedom of exploring), but more like a RPG game such as Harvest Moon.

Other than making clothes and wooing bachelors, there's several other things you can do. Such as collecting items around town, digging up artifacts at the digsite, visiting the weekly market, participating in festivals and there might be more in the future since it's still in development. I probably won't update this thread that much, so please visit the blog for updates, I update quite frequently.

Tailor Tales, if it would ever be finished, would be released with a censored version and an uncensored version. The uncensored version includes the option to have sex with the bachelor after you're married to him, the censored version won't have any mention of this at all to allow younger players to still play the game.

Tailor Tales is 100% free and is not a commercial game.


Characters
Those that have 'Marriageable' in their information can be married in the game.

@azureXtwilight: Darn! So close!! My internet shut down on me...>.<

This is a gorgeous display of your work in progress. I am very interested in seeing how this finishes. Do you know how many hours of game play this will have? And are there quests?

Well then, I must thank you! I noticed I was getting hits from this website on my blog, and decided to pay a visit. I'm glad I found this forum, lots of GxB games (though they're most visual novels, and I prefer sprite-games) and Tailor Tales will reach a bigger audience here than at RPG Maker VX communities where they rather see fighting games :lol:

I'm not quite sure since I haven't even reached that far yet, but there's a limit of 3 years in-game. Each day is about 20 minutes (24 hours in-game), and there's 20 days in 4 seasons. So roughly I'd say 10 hours for completion, not counting the fact that you can create new save files going for different bachelors.

As for quests, sure I guess you could say there are quests in the game. There's a few things to 'complete', such as the main quest which requires you to tailor a magical tuxedo for the fox to return him into a human. Then there's the task of making all clothing in the game, or all food dishes etc.

Wow...um, I'm not sure how you did that calculation, but mine shows something else. That is really impressive though.

Oh, oops. I meant side quests. But thank you for the early spoiler =D

Well, if you calculate by using all game-hours, it would be around 70 hours real-time, but I have to take into account that the player will not go through all 24 hours in a day, and will probably only spend 8 hours in-game time for each day, so I say roughly 10 hours, which is still a really rough estimate.

Pretty much the entire point of Tailor Tales :lol: one of the requirements for completing the game is marrying someone!

:3 I love the premise for the game. The art is awesome, too, and I like the idea of censored and uncensored versions of the game. I'll be checking out the blog! :D

Will the game be commercial?
I support Mr. Darcy~ <3

OH WOW~This is so impressive. D: Your art is cute and the interface is amazing!! YOU ARE A SPRITE GOD.
I loved Harvest Moon and this premise is really interesting, so I'll definitely be lurking around your site for updates.
By the way, will this be commercial? I am only a poor student hurr. Nevermind, I checked out the FAQ. :'D

Anyways, good luck!

Ooh, I see. Yeah, if you're not married by the end of the second year, you'll get a game over. So you've got 1 year of marriage life, which includes the option to have sex with your husband in the uncensored version.

Thanks for the welcome! To be honest, Tailor Tales was pretty much dropped, for one reason only; I hate spriting and making pixel-art :lol: that seriously halted production to a standstill. So I switched styles that I am much happier with and production has been in full-gear since a few months ago.


For the people who had been asking if this was commercial, it is not. Tailor Tales will always be free, because I know how scarce games like these are in English, and I want everyone to be able to play it ^_^
