Whose birthday is it? Why don't we check with the characters :O Actually, it's my birthday... My very interesting birthday. And so I sit on the couch wearing sweet smelling perfume writing this update as a little prize for all of you. I'm sorry I haven't been updating lately, it's been difficult with school and all. I promise it is all well :)
1. The school system
2. GRAPHICS TABLET
3. Face sets
6.Celestial Dance release information (plans for release)
1. By the end of this week, I hope to complete the entire childhood school system for first period
2. Earlier (A couple months ago) I received a graphics tablet as a gift. This helped improve the quality of our graphics as far as face sets and custom objects go.
3. Face sets. I have nearly completed all of the main children faces. Teenagers will come next followed by adults. After all the main characters are done, the main villagers will be drawn. An official list of remaining characters after the clearing will be announced.
4. A few wedding scenes will be completed this week.
5. NEWS UPDATE FROM DAWNING EMBER:
While celestial Dance has neared it's 25% completion mark, dawning ember has begun it's work on a side project along the side. The game will be a more mature version of Celestial Dance, and will be rated for ages 16+. The game, however is not a part of the Celestial Dance instalment and does not begin as the character growing up.
The character, however, will have the option of getting married and having kids, but through an extensive story line with deeper characters.
MAX AND ROXIE WILL BE RETURNING TO THIS GAME.
-Customise your house/world/clothing
-Marry out of six people
-A complex story line
-RPG and simulation in one
-Be a boy or a girl
-80% hand drawn graphics
-More than one child
The game is fairly far into production. It is at a very high stage at this point.

The games completion is set for January 2013 (6 months) And the testing will most likely send the project into July 2013.

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.
