Hello!

Small update here, showing the process an idea becomes a sketch, mock-up and gets coded inside the game, the idea here being the game menu as a part of the game itself.

Also, in YouTube, you need at least 100 subscribers to get a pretty url that's easy to type for the channel, so please subscribe to our channel!

Just caught up on this thread and saw the videos. I love the backgrounds we've seen so far, and that menu system is really neat. Keep it up!

That video was really entertaining, eri0! Did I hear you right? Did you say middle click to bring up the phone UI? I'd suggest an alternate way to bring up the menu. Maybe Tab or Esc, or just something you can click on. It was really interesting hearing you talk about the design process. It's great that you can collaborate so openly on design. The passion for your project really shines through and I hope you can keep it up! :)

I began to work on the character portraits. Please note that they are still WIP.

After some tests painting on higher resolution, with pen pressure and lots of colors, I decide to paint them on low resolution [about 120x120 area per character].
I think that a cleaner look with less colours works better with the game overall style. I hope you like it.

Cheers!

That estimated release date together with those screenshots tell me this game is actually going to happen. Keep it up op.

I'm glad you decided to go with the low-res portraits, fits better with the rest of the game, at least in my opinion.

These characters look pretty good and pretty pretty, I like'em ;-D
You could add some more subtle highlight light from behind or from the sides like in your forum avatar. It should look pretty cool when you make this in one color, leave on a new layer and add this light on top of the portrait within AGS and change the color of the light (by code or by changing the color in the paintproggy and importing lots of files into AGS) according to the location the characters are and how the lighting happenes in that scene.

I'm glad that you liked. We are planning to make rim lights / color correction according to the room lighting. It's like you took a look inside of our brains. ;)

Gameplay Video (with comments)
Warning: the video contains the first 7 minutes of gameplay, if you want to be in without having any idea on the game, don't watch.



Hello everyone,

We decided it's a smart decision to share the gameplay of the game we are making and get feedback on what we are doing. Below are some questions, maybe someone has some ideas for one or all of them.

1 - I want to target the game for people who likes point and click adventures, but I want the game to be able to introduce to someone who has never played anything in the genre to it. Is this basic first level making sense?

2 - The action popus explained in the video, are they a good or bad idea? Are they a good idea but they need to be implemented differently? I came up with them because people playing the game couldn't grasp in the first ten minutes the right click and left click functions (look/interact). Jumping in mario is obvious because mario jumps!

3 - Are the dialogs too long or are they good in size?

4 - Suggestions on the basic UI? I am planning on re skin the BASS template and add some buttons for the phone menu.

5 - Any other comments, or ideas or encouragement is also appreciated!

Oh, and the video has subtitles, we noticed some voice was hard to understand but the world was too noisy to re-record the audio.
