Story

The kingdom of Razileth had once plunged the world into darkness. In those dark times, heroes emerged and defeated the rulers of the kingdom, leaving it in ruins.
Many magical spells were lost after the kingdom’s destruction. One of the most powerful spells was the Cleansing Circle. This magical prison had been used to cleanse prisoners of evil thoughts and impurities.

Fifty years after the kingdom’s downfall, one young man unearths the lost art of the Cleansing Circle and releases the prisoners inside. Feeling brainwashed instead of cleansed, the prisoners strive to reverse the effects of the cleansing magic.

Dating Sim’s Almost Complete!

Edit: The applications are now closed.

Heartstring Bugs is nearly complete and will enter the beta phase really soon. I am trying to finish programming everything in, add in missing graphics and fix all the bugs. Before it can be released, I need some beta testers. The beta will be out sometime on the 26th to the 31st of this month. I’ll need dedicated beta testers who will be able to spare much of their time to play the game multiple times, report various bugs, and more. This game is quite big so please make sure you have time on your schedule before signing up!

The game consists of
-5 romances, 3 friendships
-Mix and match clothing system
-45 CGs
-Over 200,000 words
-All original music

Here are some final screenshots

If you are interested, sign up below. I will be leaving the form here until the twenty-sixth. This will give everyone who has been keeping up with the game a chance to see it. If you have any questions, post it on the comments section or email me.

Pushing Towards the End

I’m getting close to completion but I’m still not there yet.  Here’s the new progress update.

Compared to the old progress report:

-Writing has jumped from 92% to 100%

-User Interface has jumped from 80% to 90%

-Sprites has jumped from 60% to 100%

-Backgrounds has jumped from 90% to 100%

-Music has jumped from 95% to 100%

-Other art has jumped from 85% to 95%

-Overall progress has risen nearly 10%.

Here are the cleaned up sprites. If you looked at the old ones, you’ll notice slight clean up differences but otherwise,  here’s the cast. What took most of my time is trying to draw corn rows… -_-.

I’ll see you all next time!

Happy Canada Day

Happy Canada Day everyone. The day’s almost over and instead of going out, I used this day to work on Heartstring Bugs.

I’m almost done drawing chibis for the simple animations that shows up when you choose an activity. I have to draw the missing ones and code them all which is the hardest part.
Here are examples if you are curious.

 

The characters in this sim change their clothes based on the season and the occasion. Here are some of them.


Here is the updated inventory screen where you decide what to wear for your date. You probably won’t own this many clothes as I have the “all clothes cheat” on for testing purposes, unless you’re a clothing nut. =)

 

 

And where am I in progress now? Here we are! It only went up about five percent since the last update, but every 0.1% counts. XD

Sorry about neglecting this blog, I’ll try to update more often even if I don’t have much to show.

Legend of the Piper Girl Released

It’s been a while but I haven’t disappeared. I’ve been working on a visual novel for Nanoreno, where a person tries to make a game in a month. I couldn’t make it on time but here it is.

This is a hidden object, supernatural visual novel. You must find music to advance through the story. There is one real ending and one bad ending. Enjoy!

Download it here.

If you enjoyed the game, the ost is available by download.

Check it out here.

Some of you may ask, “what about Heartstring Bugs?”
I will resume working on that after a few days rest.
In summary, Heartstring Bugs still needs a lot of CGs, but the sprites are nearly complete. The ending needs to be written and the programming may take a while. Thanks for keeping up with me on this sim.
The only thing complete is music.

More Screenshots

It’s so hard to update without graphic updates but I finally got more graphical things done on Heartstring Bugs.

 

Dress the main character before an outing (a date basically)

 

Save Screen (Gray text shall be changed)

More Mini Activity Chibis

If you guys know the look of the previous interface, it’s getting another makeover.  I swear, this is the last time. 😀
*Back to work.

Guy sprites and chibimanics

~Sketch and Concept Art by ProsperPi. All I can think about is how long it took me to color this and I’m not even done.

Before these, there were 2-3 old versions of all these sprites that I scrapped. I must manage my time more wisely.>.>

Chibis. Enough said.

 

I would upload the game play video but the events and animations are out of order. Maybe that will be shown during the next update.

Oh yeah, the title of the game is now Heartstring Bugs. It took me one year to come up with a uber girly title. >.>
