I’ve finished the first 2 chapters of the game. Writing in my own native language is much faster 🙂 even if it means I’ll have to get all texts translated…! hopefully they’ll do a good job at it.
I’m really proud of the aspect of the game. The art is even better than Summer Session one. Just take a look at my screenshots below:
The fun thing is that I’m attempting a sort of new genre: dating sim (or romance adventure) from a woman’s perspective! 😀 It means that the game will have his own variety of characters and some will be more polite than others, but in general, I’ll need to put the right dose of “sex appeal” without being too explicit.
There will be also some very cute characters (two cats) and in general a more relaxing atmosphere. For now I’m not going to put any sort of scheduling mechanism, also because the game takes place for almost all its length onboard of the Cat’s Dream (the ship name).
I have added a nice feature though which is called “Quests”. In practice during the game you’ll be able to find quests to solve, that will award points. Discovering a new quest will grant you 2 points, and solving it another 3 points.
At the end of the game you’ll be awarded a score based on how many total points you scored, similarly to what happens in Sid Meier’s games 🙂
Well I’m very excited about this game even if everything is quite new for me. My first real attempt at casual audience. So far it’s a great experience and very relaxing compared to coding huge games like Supernova 2!! 😉
