    Announcing Scéal VN!

    Seacats? What’s that?

    Well, it’s the official announcement this time.
    The Scéal site has been updated. The title of the VN is still tentative, but this one might stick around longer than “Case of the Murderous Gamemaster” and other murdery titles.

    Lint report:

    The game contains 855 dialogue blocks, containing 9,161 words and 51,111
    characters, for an average of 10.7 words and 60 characters per block.

    Progress! Hooray for progress!
    And that’s more or less still the prologue.
    Still have a lot of loose blobs of text in rtf-files from way far ahead in the story.
    Like, um.. Close to the end..

    For quite some time now, I’ve been carefully planning out the who and what with my GW2 project
    (Like the Requiem comic is for GW1).
    While I did attempt a VN for Requiem, it just didn’t work out in the end..
    Scéal on the other hand is working great, as in the grand scheme of things it’s a collection of stories and I can do whatever the hell I want~
    Heck, it even starts years before the Personal Story!
    While the main story is some of everything, The First Case will be a detective/murder mystery! How exciting!

    A very rough draft of Evergreen from when I was designing her clothes.
    Style’s subject to change and she misses the rest of her cloak :v

    While I am merrily typing the story, graphics-wise there’s not much yet.
    At least, no sprites yet. Just very rough drafts of poses.
    I do have some head profile shots of a few characters, drew them so I had a better visual of them (They’re in the portfolio, but already a bit outdated).
    The backgrounds are currently PS-filtered ingame shots, which’ll probably stay.
    I’m just digging this Umineko feel at the moment.

    Many things can still change though (the default layout for one, that’ll need an overhaul), like how I decided to add an unlockable route this morning!
    But I’ve only got some key events for that one thought out, needs stuff to connect them.

    There, now you know what I’m doing.
    Unless I get some talented musician who wants to make free music for this, I’ll be *cough* borrowing from other games.

    It’ll be free.
