Your Questions, My Answers
As I said in the message, I was in exams- but I also was doing some home reno and then BIRTHDAY so hehe. I was feeling unmotivated for a while, but that's back and I've been getting back into it.
WHAT WAS WITH THAT MESSAGE?! YOU SCARED ME!!
Soooorry :( I'm fine- I just needed a break from writing to people- and a break from writing the blog.
Have you been actually working on the game?
THAT I have been. I've done a TON of stuff lately. I just kept it to myself :P
This Birthday's significance
Hehehehehehehehe I got a nintendo wallpaper. I am happy now <3
Weebly is also giving a lot of issues with the editor, so I'm keeping this short to save me the headache.
Face sprite (There are like- ten others that still need to be cleaned up and shaded- but I'm only announcing Willow Right now.)
I'm also working on some custom tile sets for the forest and for inner houses to differentiate (i.e. Ty and Lia have more artistic furniture with paint splatters and Ty has anime posters etc, while Tristan has strung photographs and Cindy has a tidy room while Tytannia has clothing strewn everywhere)
Other stuff: Voice acting, Writing, Eventing, Stuff.
So many VAs just disappeared- I have to recast a few and work with another group. Few of the love interests many need recasting because voice actors.
Almost all of the romance events have been written in full. Yay! A TON of random scenes are done, most of the school is written and in general the writing of the game is really down to the friendship level (Which takes forever but *Shrugs*)
I've stayed away from major eventing. I've worked on core elements such as weather, time, emotions etc, but I've left romance scenes and cutscenes untouched because of the maps.
Skybrew obscure menu and house opening/closing times
The obscure menu is a rare menu that appears in the skybrew cafe on a very rare instance. Like Chinese food, Japanese food etc, it has its' own category. The player can like/dislike it- but it is incredibly rare to come by. The foods are things that may not actually exist as actual dishes in real life- but still sound yummy.
Opening and closing times
I had written in-depth response to this, but I don't feel like re-writing it. Basically, there are several opening and closing times- each one differs based on the place (i.e. The candy shop closes earlier than the Cafe- which is open longer than the restaurant.)
There are also several residential house opening and closing times.
Early birds: Rise early but sleep early
Night Owl: Open their doors later, but also close them later.
Afternoon... Ducks: Open their doors, close them at an average time.
Sorry for the really lame update guys. I've done a lot, but I can't write fast enough :) I have my birthday today <3 YAY. I'll surely write some more afterwards. Have a wonderful day!
