Mirage Noir [BxG] [GxG] [Fantasy] [Mythology] [Mystery]

#1 Post by Noire » Wed Sep 25, 2013 9:33 pm

A young local witch from a certain village placed in the mountainous region of Hollow Ridges,while searching for her familliar finds a strange glade deep down in the forest. Surprisingly, she finds an unconscious, worn out man, who needed immediate medical support. Ignoring her common sense she takes him to her place and does her best, healing his wounds and frostbites.Back then little did she know that this event will change her life forever.

Vienna, the wheat-haired white witch saved the life of a young man from a certain death from freezing. As it occured later the white haired man named Vesper couldn't remember anything from his previous life. Vienna offered to help him regain his memoriesbut he strongly refused fearing that he might not like what was hidden in his past. Especially since from the very begining of their meeting he manifested his strange and uncommon abilities.

[General Info]
It's going to be quite a long visual novel. That's why it's going to be released in episodes and in the end I'll put everything together. Right now the prologue of the story is almost finished and it should be released in October (it had to be released in September, but unfortunetly life got in the way). It's hard to determine right now exact numbers of characters, endings etc. right now, so I will present all the data accordingly to the episode that I'm working on. Thus, this post will be edited a lot.

[Social media]
The main place when you can currently view all presentable data about the game is this deviantART account: ImageMirage Noir Group
Other notable place is the streaming account on Twitch.tv: Mirage Noir Livestream You can observe the game creation process there and give direct feedback.

Loving that logo <3

Also, those pencil sketches are amazing! I know that I could never achieve that level of detail and shading. Kudos!

Like the style, but could you explain the [BxG][GxG] tag? Will there be multiple protagonists or just lesbian side characters? Checking the DA for the game it seems as though Vienna is straight and married to Vesper.

Weee, right now I'm struggling with the last elements of the interface code , 2-3 missing graphics and grammar fixes.

After that the "Mirage Noir - Prologue" chapter will be finished.
There's a closed beta on my forum http://mirage-noir.com/, if anyone from Lemma Soft Forums is interested in joining feel free to send me a PM :)

Wow, I love the style you draw! I looked at every character profile you have at devianart and Althea is really beautiful, though as a girl I like the most Vesper ;)
I´m looking forward to play your game.

I’m really impressed by the art, and you’ve put a lot of thought into the plot. Downloading right now and I’m hopefully going to play this game today. :)

I can't believe I forgot to get back to you on this. Haha. This is really late, since I played this way back in December, but I just wanna say that this game is awesome! And I can't wait for the next chapter.

I wrote a more in-depth review here, by the way, if you'd like to check it out.

Ooooooh, I hope you release the next one soon, haha. You will make new chapter, yes? Pretty please? I really loved it. Haha. Thanks for this game. :)

I had some issues with my health for 8 months, but right now I have recovered (more or less). Because of that I couldn't work on Chapter One as much as I wanted, so there's a huge delay.
Also, formerly 'Chapter One' had 37k words but in the end I ended up with 56k words - so the amount of graphics and sprites is doubled right now :) If you wish to follow the current game development you can do it here: Game Jolt - I post there regulary some screenshots and other game related things :)

Current game progress:

Text...............................100% (56 000 words)
Translation.......................10%
Text editing......................80%
Music..............................50%
Graphics..........................30%
Scripting..........................0%
