Tenkei Tales I & SHINRAI


Hi, everyone! ( ゚▽゚)/ As promised in the last posting, we’ll take a look at my current endeavors today. I’ve got a backlog of various projects and have the unhealthy habit of switching around randomly between them, depending on what I currently feel like working on. Which means I have a dozen things started but nothing really presentable… and is a thing I should definitely change. ( ´△`) I decided to focus on something very small, a little game I probably came up with because I’m in a festive mood lately.

Let me introduce you to Prismanga’s upcoming RPG Maker game Tenkei Tales I; with Tenkei (written as 天恵) meaning “heavenly blessing”! ヾ(。・ω・)シ This name refers to the Festival of Seven Blessings celebrated on the continent of Iridos, which is something like an equivalent to our world’s christmas. Tenkei Tales I will be a very short game, focusing on Kanami (the little girl on the left) and her family on the fifth day of the festival. It’s an important day for families and Kanami is looking forward to seeing her traveling mother again, but then something important goes missing and she receives a troubling phone call. Will her two companions be able to save the day?  (・∀・;)

I’ll need a minimum of 12 maps and 4 charsets (those chibi-like sprites you walk around with in most RPG Maker games) to make this work. I’d love to include visual novel-like sprites too! Here’s a little info graphic on the current progress:


There’s a lot of work to do, but I’ve still got a little over five weeks until christmas, so it’s totally manageable! I’d like to release it around the 24th – if I’m faster than expected, I’ll try to add in a few CGs. Thus the “Extra” progress bar down there. If I’m slower than expected I’ll just have to sacrifice my christmas holiday and get it released around new year’s. (But c’mon, I can’t be THAT slow… I only need a dozen maps and four characters! ヽ(゜ロ゜;)ノ)

So yeah, that’s the thing I’m currently working on! I’ll keep you updated on Tenkei Tales I with a new posting every week. Let’s hope we’ll see some steadily increasing progress bars!

Speaking of progress, another thing I’m working on is SHINRAI, which is a murder mystery visual novel by Gosatsu VNs (consisting of Gospel and myself). If you want to know more about it, please take a look at our Tumblr-Blog! (We’re on Steam Greenlight too, btw!) There’s currently not much to do for me, as I’m the one responsible for sprite coloring and coding, and have to wait until more assets are done. To show off a bit about SHINRAI‘s world and characters, I’ll be doing a webcomic special in which my dear mascot and his assistant take a trip to the Miyamoto Mountain Resort! .+:。(ノ・ω・)ノ゙
(I want to introduce those two properly first, though, so the special comics begin afterwards.)

Sooooo… I guess that’s all for today! Have a wonderful week, everyone! ( ̄▽ ̄)ノ
(Oh, I’ve added a little FAQ to the homepage too… it’s not much yet, but if you have any suggestions please tell me!)
