Hi guys! I'm terribly sorry for the lack of updates. My health hasn't been the best and (without going into painful details) I haven't been able to continue working on the game as fast as I'd have liked. Right now I'm looking for someone who could partially take over so that this game can get made. I put so much love and work into it already, so it would be a shame for it all to go to waste. That said, please contact me if you'd like to cancel your preorder. Once again, I'm sorry to have kept you in the dark for so long!
Hello! I'm not giving the release date anymore because I don't want to disappoint anyone in case it gets postponed again. I'm sorry :( Me and my artist are working hard to bring the game to life though. I'll keep you updated if there are any major developments!
Hi :) Yes, Renpy is a lot better for my purposes than Unity! Also, please don't be worried, I'm still working on the game^^ It's a lot slower since I have a day job now, but the game will be released for sure.
Thank you for the hint! I'm making the game in a different program now, so hopefully there will be no such issues.
I'm glad you enjoyed the demo despite its issues^^ Haha, hopefully there will be more surprises like these in the game :)
Hello! Thank you so much for the words of encouragement :) I'm always extremely happy when someone enjoys the game. It gives me the strength to carry on^^ And if you wish to receive information on the game, you can send your email to firstname.lastname@example.org or follow me on Twitter. Those who contributed $30 or more during the Kickstarter campaign are going to be testing the first route soon, so I hope to release the full game this year, or at the beginning of the next :)
Ooh, thank you for such kind words <3 I'm honored that you want to be friends with me! Do you have Skype or Steam? We could chat there^^ If you don't want to write personal information here, please send me an email: email@example.com, or you can follow me on Twitter (I'll follow you back): https://twitter.com/Haru_Trickster
I'm sorry you're experiencing problems! The demo was made in Unity, but not on mac, and I noticed some mac users can't launch it. I made a movie that helped a few of them:
I'm sorry that it's in Polish, but it's pretty straightforward and easy to follow.
If you're still experiencing problems, please let me know.
Thank you so much! I'm very happy you enjoyed playing the game. Yes, making it is so much fun! I love writing dialogue and drawing the characters^^ It'll come out before the end of 2017 and it'll be quite a long game. I hope you'll find some time to play it them :)
Hello :) Thank you, I'm glad you both liked it!
Yes, some are based on people I know. E.g. Haru's mom is based on my own mom. She's always been very supportive of me, no matter what I did. I've always felt a lot of love from her. I want to show this good relationship in the game, that is, between Haru and his mom. Also, Haru's insecurities are partly my own. I read that "you should write from your core wounds", so I'm trying that out now. As for the other guys, they are partly influenced by many anime series I've seen and partly by me being tired of the usual anime tropes :)
Hi! Thank you so much for the kind words :) The game will come out before the end of 2017 for sure. It grew during the development and I still have many things I need to implement/finish. I might even try to get the funding for voice acting^^
Thank you, I'm glad you like it! I'm surprised at how many people like Soichiro. I expected him to come across as this boring, old pushover (at least in the demo, where the characters are just introduced), but I'm thrilled that you all saw something more in him. Haha, I like Shinya best, but just because he's the easiest to laugh at :D
Hello, I'm sorry you're experiencing problems! Could you write to firstname.lastname@example.org and give me more details like the platform you're using or what exactly is happening? I'd love to help!
You're right, I'm sorry! If you have a gmail account, I'd be happy to share the uncompressed game folder with you. In case you don't want to write it here, you can write to email@example.com
9.08.16 The game has been STEAM GREENLIT! After only 13 days! Thank you for voting and spreading the word :)
I'm the sole creator of the game and would love to hear your opinion on it! I'm open to constructive criticism and want to improve. I know that my art is not perfect, but the demo is really fun, please try it out The protagonist might look silly, but he has guts and snark. Some of the players said he's a bit similar to Aoba from Dramatical Murder (for those of you into BL). You might like him Completing the demo will take only about 1 hour of your time. It has 5 endings. As for my writing style, maybe I should just tell you about my favorite books. It's The Dresden Files and Sandman Slim.
Sentimental Trickster relies on the player's choices. Those choices include which guy you want to be with, but also ethical issues, what you deem right doing at the time. All my characters have scars of some sort and it's up to the player if he/she wishes to heal or rub salt. The protagonist himself hides a lot. I'm not making a game for smut's sake here (although I do enjoy those scenes as well and the game is going to be 18+). I wish to give players something deeper.
I've been making Sentimental Trickster non-stop for the last couple of months and I'm slowly running out of money, so I've decided to get some funding on Kickstarter. If you like the demo, please spread the word!
