This is a project I was working on back in February!(2011) With ~Nellyah But we kinda dropped it, quite a long time ago. And this isn't an actual demo of the game, but more like- a presentation of it. I've stacked there all the arts I've done back then-this means they're pretty old by now. They aren't so good, but ah~ I remember what an awesome creative rush I had then. Did all the stuff so fast! Several arts a day! Did almost all sprites in around a day-two! And there even are some stuff that are still WIP laying around my PC, there are some disposed too- so actually, there's more art that isn't showed here. Quite a lot of work and love put in this project. ;w;
No idea if we'll ever seriously continue it. Maybe it was too ambitious even if we already have so much of the work done. Even some of the coding. I coded a working phone thingie! ;w; *feels so proud* Too bad I couldn't include it here. QAQ I needed to rework the whole thing, because it was in a different resolution. And I didn't have time for that. Because- we did this demo to actually present it on a con! I had a day to put it together! And then- it turned out they were accepting only ideas for online games. OTL Very disappointing, but at least- after so much time- we got something to show and not just useless chaos in a folder-catching dust.
As you can see- the GUI is done just on ~1%- most of the stuff=not touched at all-I never got to that part. I need more exp. there anyway. >.> But I did quite a lot of research about it! Just that I never got the chance to use the learnt here. ^^lll The gameplay- wow, this is such a tiny bit of it too. I planned on putting a lot of gameplay in this game and lil visual novel aspects for the story. Didn't get to that part either. It was just me and Nell working on this,and I had to work on most of the stuff, sooo... There was just one lil addition-the music! It was done by Kael >w< So awesome! There were supposed to be more tracks but...yeah- we dropped and I kinda lost track of Kael too. O.o The music here is still WIP- not the final version. As anything in this demo actually.
So- that's it! I hope you enjoy. ;w; Please, leave aaaany comments! I'll be glad to hear them!
Note:There's a possibility to get a C++ error. I have no idea why this happens. O.o And not always and not to everyone and not on the same place. If something like that happens- simply restart the game. There are some bugs in the demo, but as I said- I didn't have much time to work on it. But from which I am aware of- they are minor.
Unfortunately this is just like a presentation, it's not even a proper demo and there's no full game ;v; It's such an old project, I'm really surprised someone thought of it at all! I might come back to work on it at some point, but we'll see~
Thanks anyway Zenshii, your videos are awesome >v< Maybe my next game then? *hint-hint* I'm working on something currently~
Oh, my mistake, I didn't notice the download button it's still working, I've just read your demo. It's a pity that you dropped this project because it has a potential (and I love horror/ psychological/ thriller) but oh well, can't be helped.
I somehow familiar with your username on LSF. Zayay, if I'm not mistaken is the one of your game, right?
I wish me and my friend could start on our visual novel. We made an idea for one and we have a layout for everything except the computer part, we're having trouble making the game and for some reason when I downloaded Renpy it wouldn't work on my computer.
Well in order to work on this project, I need the story for it written out, I need the plot so I could draw scenes and code it. I need ~Nellyah 's writing, and without it- I can't do anything. Since she had some issues then, she couldn't work on the project and in the end- we dropped it. I even can't believe that it's been more than a year already since then! O.o
Right now I'm working on a completely new project, this time alone, and I hope I'll be able to complete it in the summer~
Aw, what a shame that you dropped that one... ;A; Actually, I like the demo quite a lot! The whole mental hospital thing is so interesting... I'd love to play the full version, it's such a rarity to find a (potentially) interesting vn with no romance and dates! >w< Is there any place where I can read a little about the plot? The story has definitely peaked my interest...
But you know? The program doesn't matter about this at all. I've seen people doing amazing art, A LOT more better than mine just in MS Paint. Or on some online drawing board with just a 1px pen. So it's just important to draw, to practice and evolve. The tools start to matter later.
When you think you're done with your game- use the "Archive files" thingie. Then you have to click on "Build distributions" and done! You get an archived file of your game! ^^ If you want to make it installable- like I have, you'll need to find some other software that does that and turns your game into an .exe file. Google can help here- there are some nice easy free programs for that. ^^
Are you a member of the LS forums? -> [link] If not, I recommend you to become one. It's very useful and you can find the answers to a looot of your questions concerning RenPy and Visual novels in general. You can ask questions on your own too! ^^ There's a whole section for that.
omg I downloaded this and wow it felt: awesome, scary, suspense, what else!I looooove it even though it was so short. Too bad you guys didn't continue it QvQ btw what GUI means?*forever stupid otl * Ohh talking about games, I finally decided to do one too =7= ;; ahahaha . Otome game yay but somehow a "special" kind of game that in a subtle way makes fun of the usual cliche stories that has almost the same scenes everytime u v u ;; I even have the summary of the plot~ Comedy, mystery and romance(?) weird combination right But I will try to do it with another VN-maker , ehmmm do you know of Novelty? its way easier than RenPy in my point of view
GUI= Graphical user interface / SO means all menus, buttons,cursors, stuff~
AMG- awesome!!! >w< Can't wait for it! If you ever need any help-I'm here!!!
Yup- I know about it, I think I've tried it once. It sure is easier,because doesn't require so much coding, but the problem with it is that you can only make simple VNs and not like with RenPy- to have more gameplay. Depends on what you need- it could be perfect though! ^^
