DEVLOG 7

HEYA! So it's been a while since I've done one of these- not cause I haven't made progress! but because I've just been working on the same thing for a very long time! and didn't think yall would want me to be all like "Oh hey it's ___ again" each devlog. but I finished the dialogue so now I can do everything else, like art and the actual coding! I'm already  done to 1/3 of the total options in game (as in like. total choices you have to make. there are defo more than 3 options in total asdfgjkl;) and I've done 3 sprites (granted the only changing things on them are the expressions, don't be afraid to cut corners to make ur life easier yall.)

Plus this!


Oooo what a good concept!! I used to play these kinds of games all the time when I was younger! I can't wait to play it!

You've made so much progress!! I love the store front and those character images! I'm really excited to try out this game, it's mechanics sound really fun!

Wowza this is looking so good so far!! I can't wait to see how the finished version turns out!

DEVLOG 6:

Still doing dialogue! But! I also did some of the game's actual script! Not a whole lot but it's a start! Have a look in gif form! (gotta love place holder art.)


DEVLOG #5:

Heya! So some of you may have noticed (or not) that I didn't post one of these yesterday! That's because yesterday I did quite literally nothing and didn't feel like posting a devlog specifically just to say that. But! I did do stuff today! and That is once again- You guessed it! Dialogue! Mostly rewriting some of the stuff I already had though but I do have a little somethin new that I can share with ya from it! Boop!


DEVLOG 4:

Heya! So long story short my internet was out for all day yesterday so I couldn't really get much done unfortunately! (couldn't acess my google doc with the dialogue so I can't work on that, and I couldn't work on the actual code script of the game because I need the dialogue for me to know when I want what done, ect.) I did manage to get some drawing for the game done but not enough to show. Hopefully today will be a little more productive!

Thank you!! Wizard mischief is certainly afoot!

Thank you!!

They're  freckles! but the idea of star blush is also 100% very good. Thank you!!

DEVLOG #3:

Heya! Still working on dialogue for the most part, and I've made some really good progress!! I'd probably say i'm like... 3/4 done? Maybe. It's hard to tell until I actually start writing but I know for sure I'm getting closer to the end!!

I don't have any new dialogue I can show y'all without spoiling anything but I have been working on the art aspect just a teensy bit so have a little snip of that!


Thank you!!

Who knows!! ...Well I do, but that's a secret >:3c asdfjkl;

DEVLOG #2:

Hiya! So, not much to report over here today! Not to say I didn't get much done! It's just that most of it was of one specific thing- Dialogue! I managed to write quite a fair bit today!! I'm not sure how far I am roughly in the entirety of the game, but I wanna say maybe.. 1/4? 1/3? Maybe.

Here's a very small excerpt for yall!


This is such a cute idea omg... It also seems like it could potentially be pretty challenging too! Good luck!

OOo this seems like a really cool idea! I love the overall aesthetic so far! Good luck!

It really does yeah asdfjkl; COMING SOON: The Simpsons VN Style brought to you by Fancy Octopus Studios

Asdfjkl; Depending how these 2 weeks go it just might be!

This seems like such a cool idea! Good luck!!

Thank you!!

DEVLOG #1:

Heya! I don't really know what I should say in these aside from what exactly I've done today if there is any thing else I should say, so let's just get into it!

COMPLETED:

  1. The entire outline of the plot of the game!
  2. The introduction dialogue!
  3. Came up with a name!

STARTED:

  1. After introduction dialogue! (only a single line but. still. it counts.)

And that's it so far! Here's a quick peek of it (though I know a single still isn't much it's all I kinda wanna show for now),


(Please...excuse the placeholder images :'y)

Hi everyone! I'm Mo and this is the thread where I will post updates on my progress! (Hopefully!) This is the first time I'm going to be making anything even in resemblance to a game so we'll see how this goes!

Basic Story Premise: You play as a young wizard boy named Tarsell, who's been left home alone with his friend for 2 whole hours! Naturally, hijinks ensues.

I guess I should also share how I'm making the game- I'm going to be using Renpy to put the game together, Clip Studio Paint to make the art, and *Bosca Ceoil for music! *Maybe! Music is sort of a very low concern to me but I would like to have it if I can!

I don't know what else to put here so I guess this is where I'll end this for now! I'll be posting at the end of the day the progress I've made (if any). Thanks for reading and good luck to other jammers!!

1. Hi there! What's your name? Want to introduce yourself?

Hiya! I'm Mo! I don't really know what to put here but uhhh I like drawing, glitter, and just sparkly things in general.

2. Did you participate in the last jam we held? If so, what do you plan on doing better this time? If not, what's your reason for joining?

I'm a newbie here! I wanted to join because I've been really wanting to learn how to make games for a long while now and figured this would be a good of chance as any!

3. What games are your favorites? Did any of them inspire you, or made you want to make your own?

Truth be told I have not actually played that many games in my lifetime, they've always sorta been really pricey and thus out of reach for most of my early childhood, and now that I do have some, I'm just really bad at actually making myself play them haha! But! Out of the ones I've played I have to say probs Deltarune and Stardew Valley are my favorites! After finishing Deltarune I had such a strong feeling of "I want to make something like that!" and Stardew Valley is honestly just so much fun! I haven't touched it in a while but believe me, I still have over 100 hours put into it.

4. Do you have experience with game development? What did you do/with what engine?

I have 0 experience and am hoping not to die during this jam from it.

5. Tell us about something you're passionate about!

Uhh I like making things! There's just so much you can do in life that you can share with other people and just the concept of that is exciting to me! Like there are so many ways you can share who you are, what you like, your dreams, ect.  (like cooking, dancing, singing, drawing, writing, ect) and then have others share the same with you and it's just really cool and inspiring! I just really love that, being able to connect to people over something you /they made.

6. What are your goals for this game jam?

Try to make something finished, do my best, and don't die.
