Welcome to my update!
What could this be? A FACESET REVEAL?! Yes! I am actually revealing the current art for each of the characters!
First things first, let's get to the update.
The only thing that is really worthy of an update would have to be the school system. I have finally decided that in later units, they will be more interactive, contain mini-games and lots of fun lessons. I also may be including other educational classes that allow mini-games etc.
Since there isn't much I am allowed to report (Hint being that there are too many things I can't reveal) I will reveal the facesets, and give you an update on Artist's Canvas :)
SO.... which to reveal first...
Well since I like writing, I'll be nice and reveal the face sets.
NOTE: ALL COLOURED ONES ARE OUT OF DATE BESIDES ARIS! Cindy will be shaded further, Tytannia will be re-coloured, and just about all the rest are being re-drawn/have been redrawn but not scanned.
In this picture, all the black and white ones are up to date.
TOP LEFT: Kandi, Teenage Roxie, Evangaline, Tytannia(outdated), Cindy, Maid (Outdated),Brooklyn (Outdated),
Second row: Child Roxie (Outdated), Baby Roxie (Outdated)
Third row: Child Max, Child Gage, Child Tristan, Child Andy.
Fourth row: Teen Anastasia (OUTDATED BY A LOT), Child Aris, Teen Gage (Outdated), Pre-teen Willow, Child Leo, Child Kandi.
A few drawn/coloured ones were not included due to in-completion or not being scanned.... I hope they're not dissappointing :S I worked hard on them all.
An Artist's Canvas Information
So now... Artist's Canvas has a website under construction that I will link everyone to when It's ready. Of course, AC is a lot like Celestial Dance. In fact, it makes REFERENCES to this game! Roxanne and Max make a comeback as Tristan makes a Cameo appearance.
Marriage: YES you can marry in Artist's canvas. In fact, it is encouraged! There are 6 boys and 6 girls... I think...
Like CD, there are people rivalling your love. Some rivals can Marry.
Not ONLY can those people get married, but even the younger kids, and the older adults! There are many love stories in Artist Canvas, most ending with happily ever after <3
Children: Once again... Yes! you can have up to 3 children. Your husband or wife will once again ask you for Children, and after that point, you can decide when to have kids.
Max: Max is still a sweetheart and a gentlement... However, Max is someone to be feared. He is always at his friends side. Max mentions Andy and Gage throughout the story, even though he has two new best friends. Hilariously enough, one of them has blue hair, and one of them a deep blonde. (Close enough to orange >.>) Roxie is still Max's most prized thing in life and treats her as such. All four of them are together forever, and both boys Max is friends with can be Roxie's love interest (If you choose to go after her primary love interest, she goes after the other)
Roxie: Roxie is not NEARLY as defenceless as she is in Celestial Dance. Of course, she is adorable and cutesy at times, but she puts up a fight. She has a huge crush on Parker (or on Kane if you decide to romance Parker) as well as a small crush on the male Hero. She is tough and strong willed.
Story: Celestial Dance is the game of peace and tranquility... Artists Canvas is quite the opposite. The story takes place in a town swallowed up in a modern war. Participation is all on the hero's choosing. The hero can cook, create, decorate, befriend and romance in the town while watching the harsh reality unfold within six heart throbbing chapters. After the story is complete, the game is carried on as usual. Quests can be done, things can be made, places can be decorated...
Approximate game play: Assumed amount of hours that the game will offer is around 20, give or take. Days are long, challenges are... challenging and the story takes a while to unfold. Some chapters take a couple years in-game to complete.
Cheats/easter eggs: As in all our games, including CD, MANY Cheats will be inserted.There will be lots of fun, special items and games all hidden in the town.
Being a good sport: Yes.... you can take part in the war. No... you cannot die on special missions. If you fail, you are sent back home to recover for a night.
RPG: You can hunt and fight people. You cannot die while fighting... but you will be sent home and it will be added to your amount of injuries. It will influence the end of the story.(Maybe)
Customising your world: You will be able to create an entire world eventually! You will make animals and lifeforms, as well as decorate to your liking!
Deep pasts: All characters in AC have a meaning to their life. No one is left without a personality or a story.
Well I hope you enjoyed! I will be working on the 3 school systems for the rest of today (Highschool, middle school and grade school) I promise you won't be disappointed ^_^
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.
