Who is Vera Blanc?

In the picture on the left you see a sketch for another project of mine in progress right now.

As I said several times, I always start many projects at once because is normal that there are some “dead moments” between a production of art, voices, programming and so on. So it’s always a good idea to have another project standing by when your main one is on hold. Or simply to “do something different”. Working always on the same thing can get tiring sometimes even if you love your job like in my case :)

This game is going to look very different from everything I’ve done so far. First of all as you can see, it doesn’t use manga art-style. I love manga, but I like also the other comic styles (american, etc), so I decided to try making a different game. I hope people won’t buy my games only because they’re manga! :p

About the gameplay: it will be a detective/mystery story. I’m still planning it so I can’t exactly tell much about it, but there will be some mini-games inside it, similar to the recent Spirited Heart update. There will be also a scheduler, and a very simple RPG element in it (some skills to pick at startup that will influence the story slightly).

The cute blonde on the left is Vera Blanc, and she is gifted with some special powers… while the guy on the right is Brandon Mackey, his partner during the investigations. In this image they’re hand in hand but actually in the game they’re not a couple: it was a wrong sketch made by the artists but is so nice that I wanted at least to put it in my blog!

More info about this project coming soon. Now time to get back to add some more enemies in Planet Stronghold…

      lol no, or better… could be, but that’s not what I have in mind. More like a word game, since it’s strictly related to Vera’s special skill ;) hope to get more art quickly so I can make a video, even if I already know this game wil be bashed because so far is my most fanservice ever :D

    I actually like this style a lot, it’s possibly my favourite used in a game of your so far… and I’m a great anime fan.

    I suppose we’ll see how it goes with colour and all that, for now I’m very interested! Vera in particular has such gentle features… <3

    (link please? ;_;)

    I like this style a lot more than your recent games’ half-and-half semi-manga stuff! It’s got a nice look to it, and to be honest, a detective story is more up my street than romance.

    It’s a shame to see the colours, though… they don’t seem to match the line art, they’re less saturated and much softer than I was expecting from the lines.

    Thanks :)
    Hmm I agree with you but I don’t think the colors are too bad…Consider that image is quite zoomed in.
    I think the ideal would have been to have a coloring similar to Heileen ones, with very bright/saturated colors. However the costs would be much much higher for me :/
