Project News!


Hiiii, everyone!! ヾ(。・ω・。)

After feeling a bit crappy and not getting much done for a few days after Halloween (maybe TWD Season 2 destroyed me :’D), things are looking up again! I have some news to tell and two announcements to make today, so let’s get started immediately!

The Halloween Special…
…has been delayed again, I know. I’ve been thinking that I’d like to conduct yet another experiment with those 30 pages, meaning that I’ll simultaneously upload them on this page and on Tapastic. It’d be nice to reach a few more people, so I’d like to see how that turns out – or if it’ll go completely unnoticed. (・・。)ゞ I have done a little research on upload times and frequency and the standard seems to be “two pages, once a week” or “one page, twice a week”. I don’t think that’s appropriate for this Special, though, so uploads will start on November 21st and last for about four weeks. There’ll be two updates per week (once on monday and once on thursday) and I’ll upload 3-4 pages at once. Yep, that’s the first announcement!

Tenkei Tales I: Levellia…
…is back to being worked on! (And that’s the second announcement!) It even has a subtitle now! I can’t recall if I’ve mentioned her already on this homepage, but Lady Levellia is the Goddess of Flow (which is mostly a fancier term for “Water Goddess”) and plays a certain role in this story. I think little games like the Tenkei Tales entries might be a nice way to introduce you to some of Iridos’ lore, but don’t worry, the story is not overly religious or somber – it’s silly fun with a few simple riddles along the way. (⌒▽⌒)☆
Since I like that old tradition, let’s take a look at the current progress chart!


As you can see, there’s quite a bit of work to do, but it really looks worse than it is. The old Tenkei Tales I was practically done and this chart depicts only the things I plan to redraw, revise or add. Yep, that’s right – because I had to scrap parts of the story due to time restrictions last year, there were some things I couldn’t add, but want to include this year! There’ll be three new areas, each about three maps big, as well as some new characters and CGs. Thus, the game will finally have all of its previously intended content!

I’ll have to shuffle some things around in the script, but I’ve got it all figured out already – I just need to write it down. So the “Revised Script” part will be finished very soon. I also decided to redraw the old sprites and CGs, because I’m not happy with them anymore. Tsukasa’s sprites are (aside from the expressions) already finished and you can see a little comparison in the preview pic on top! I think he looks much better now! o(〃^▽^〃)o The maps and charsets will mostly stay as they are, though, since I still like them. I might add a few little things here and there, but that’s about all I’ll change.

…has changed a little as well, as you might have noticed. We have a shiny imagebutton menu and an extra section for manga now, even if I still didn’t get around to add the Valentine’s and White Day Specials. If I ever can decide on a look for the Chara and World pages, I’ll start updating them as well… but right now, TTIL and the Halloween Special are my priorities.

I think that’s all for now. It’s only a few days until the next update anyway!
Sooooo… as always, thank you for reading and have an awesome day!! (ノ^ヮ^)ノ*:・゚✧
