From the Celestial Dance Staff!
These are autumn greetings from Canadians, and though it's not fall for everyone, I'd like to give you a lovely taste of my country's season. This includes some Celestial Dance items, outfits and things that can only be found in Autumn in the game. (Runs from September to November I believe in the game)
Today (October 21st) I came home from school and even though I was exhausted, I took my dog for a walk.
On my way there, I didn't expect to do what I did... I collected leaves.
For those of you that have never seen autumn leaves, I'd like to share with you a little bit of what I found. Canada is actually known for it's autumns and this is just the beginning of it... So I really hope that I can find some really nice.
Sadly, the scans made the colour a bit duller, but still it's very lovely to look at.
I'm going to use the colours as a base for the autumn colours in clothing and leaves for the game :) I think they're so pretty and I think it will look beautiful in game~
These will be just some Autumn exclusive items in Celestial Dance
Sky Brew Cafe
MoonCake Family Restaurant
Heaven On Earth
SCARY NIGHT COSTUMES
There is currently a missing costume (The bride costume) for the child year...
but what about the teen year?
What type of costumes should we see?
One of my ideas was to make a Dimentio costume, but it didn't look the way it should have lol. (Dimentio from super paper mario.)
I would like to do some cosplay or video game characters as costumes, but I'm stumped. I'll try to think up something.
Of course, there will be items available year round, so don't feel as though this is ALL you can buy in fall. There's a whole lot more fall exclus. as well, but I'm still working on them. Since I'm hoping I won't be doing these updates for another year, I'm going to try and push out some winter exclusives next update and some spring the next. I'm looking to complete some more stuff today guys :) Let's cross our fingers for the completion really soon.
National Novel writing month
I figured I'd share this for anyone who likes to write stories. There's an international writing month going on in November!
Basically, the challenge is to write a little over 1000 words per day to reach a goal of 50000 words total. It's a lot of fun and there are some great deals and prizes for you if you complete the challenge. (There's one website sponsoring the event that will give you two free copies of your book if you publish through them~)
It's totally free! I've entered too <3
Dialogue and relationship system
If you guys had remembered, one of the features in the game is for you to use different interactions such as 'conversation' 'story' etc.
We had to make a MINOR change to this just due to the amount of dialogue we (I) would have to write.
If you go down to the 'Getting Married' Tab, You will get a vague idea of the various relationship levels.
Friendships go on for eight different Levels.
Once you reach maximum friendship, you will have the most dialogue out of any level. Once you reach the third last level, you will begin to have the options to have conversations. Kissing will still occur as of right now. You may kiss the boys, but if you do it too early, your will lose relationship points XD
When you're a kid, it's the cheek, when you're a teen- It's on the lips LOL.
I'm so glad that you do ^_^ I just figured it'd be lots of fun to put in a new header <3 You can see a line of pixels from the old one below it though LOL oops XD
I'm so glad ;_; I love Sora myself. It was the first time I was so overly free with the hair. It turned out decent though, so I'm happy that everyone likes him <3
Thank you :D In the next update I'll actually have some more done! so hopefully it won't be just a simple "LOL here's some stuffies that you don't care about." I'll have some serious updaes and hopefully a quick video too!
And I'm so glad you think so ;_; I'm trying my best to make some decent drawings for this game. I hope I can acheive that goal ^_^ it means a lot knowing that someone thinks I've improved <3 so Thank you!
LOL the video. I was half-asleep and supposed to be studying :D Yeah, I ramble when I'm nervous. The first time, I got to nearly the 15 minute mark with rambling. I need to make some scripts or something to eliminate the amount that I talk :)
I think I sent you an email ;_; I think. I'll go check. I've been keeping in touch with so many voice actors since It's casting season :D -_-; XD so I'm losing myself in emailing them and writers so I'm not sure who I have and haven't emailed anymore TT_TT
My best suggestion to you is to play normally until the pre-teen or teen year and just befriend all of the child year people and save in all four slots. That way, you can just pick up where you left off without having to play through all of the chapters ^_^
It's up to you though. That's what I'm doing for playtesting, except I'll be massively cheating in order to be able to test XD
Maxie <3 He's so cute. My goodness his honeymoon dialogue is probably my favorite. he's just always being silly, romantic or just cute. My cousin and I just sit around writing his dialogue LOL.
Hmm that's a tough choice. Kyler's is a bit more explicit (his path has a mention of drugs, but he's okay other than that.) and Jet's can be a bit more humorous. I love Kyler's events (one of my friends wrote out the path's scenario and it's pretty funny/brilliant.) I personally like Kyler a lot as a character (As he's super sweet), but I haven't finished Jet's path or honeymoon so I'm not sure how he'll turn out in the end :) I suppose you'll decide when you meet them? ^_^
I have to re-draw Ky-Ky :( We'll see how that works out :D
I'm glad you like that story ^_^ People are very sensitive to those topics, so I was a bit worried. I'm a bit worried about Aris though XD I think everyone's going to try to kill me. *cough*
I'm glad you enjoyed that update :D Sorry for the long reply LOL. and I'm sorry this one wasn't too fabulous XD Until next time!
I love visual novels too :) Aww I'm glad you think so ^_^; I hope it'd be alright. When we decide on the final love interest, we'll know what we're going to do for the story. Yeah, Shiro is kind of scary XD but I do like Sora personally. As I said above, I was being kind of trying to do his hair a bit wilder than I usually do XD It didn't turn out too bad. I do love him as a character though. I'll list three more when they are out :) We're going to do a poll at the end of Celestial dance to see which ones people like best and we'll chose the top three or four to be part of the visual novel <3
I'm glad you like it ^_^ At least three people come to your birthday at all times: Max, Cindy and Roxie~ So you'll always get a gift! But I agree! Lots of gifts=lots of fun :P
Ahh it's really easy to get him to date you :) Plus, you'd want to see all of his events <3 So if you do see all of Jet's teen events, you'd be dating! Then marrying him is no big deal~!
If you want to see both, you can just save, propose and then reload and play until he proposes XD I say that his is more romantic, because it typically has something to do with him and you... or it's interactive~ My favorite is Tyrones LOL His is fun~!
Ahh yes.. The flashbacks differ from person to person :) Some of them are flashbacks from the boy, and sometimes just ABOUT them. So They're usually pretty adorable <3 Max's is my favorite XD but that's just me.
Honeymoon dialogue is my favorite thing to write :3 It's so much fun to be random.
Flabbergasted is a great word XD
I would too ^_^ I would love to have both kids, but I'd be resetting until I had the boy and the girl XD you have a 1/4 chance of getting the combo you want~ Which is good.
I can kind of see Damion or Tyrone or someone with one of the hyper-active kids just dangling from their hair XD poor guys.
I think I've actually cried while trying to write it a few times XD X'D :\ :| :'(
I haven't been able to make enough of an impact yet, so I'm going to do my best to make it a nice finale~
We get attached to the pixels because they are so nice to us ;_; I don't even know XD I have some detailed after stories for each character I'd probably write about. I know I'm going to miss the look and character of Alice when I start Artists Canvas, so that's probably why I want to make a CD sequel so bad. LOL
Damion's not for everyone XD he's a Tsun-Tsun. I can't say that I dislike him anymore. He's kind of funny and sweet sometimes all he needs is a friend. He can be a bit of a jerk though LOL.
something about smashing rocks I find fun virtually XD I would get so mad in Animal Parade when I wouldn't get a diamond. CD is a little bit more fun because you don't have stamina... you just need money to make money~
Animal parade was a main influence on the CD mine for sure XD
That's okay, I don't remember what Jet likes :P I'm going to have to look at my notes. A lot of people like the sweet and bubbly personality, so it's not a bad thing XD Only some of the girls and the less popular boys dislike it. (Anastasia, Tristan... Them LOL)
I'm so glad you like them ;-; That means a lot coming from you <3 I hope I can do the other characters justice XD I'll be finishing Jet's sprite and emotions soon <3 I'll post them for next update I hope :P
It's not my favorite name, but I think that's because I'm so used to it hahaha I do like the nickname 'Roxie' though. LOL I don't know why :)
LOL It just gives people a reason to eat food I guess XD It wasn't anything special :)
I'll give you a quick tip for days where you have multiple options :)
For example, Scary night changes every year. Save before you go back home for the evening, and go either to the pumpkin patch or watch the movie. Reload and do whichever you didn't do. Then reload again and go trick or treating~
After TOTing, you get all your candy and you've seen all the dialogue~ It's one of the easier things to do XD
I'm really just teaching people how to cheat on my game *cough* XD
Thank you so much! sorry for the long message/ the lame update.
The end for now XD
I'm a total dork who writes too much all the time because I like typing and I used to write novel-length stories and I'm just a weird person who does some things and breathes and stuff.
