huh, how did i miss THAT?

eenyhoo, did you redo the terrain too? cause half he reason for the shading style on the originals was fitting in with stock tile sets.

also you got the new sheets handy? i'd like to see em.

We ended up adding a filter to the terrain that made the default tiles look more like the Housepets! cartoony lineart and shading style, and then put that on the sprites. However I've since found disstaste in that style as it's far to difficult to implement and edit (also requires using gimp) and I like the more flat cartoony look. So I'll be making new tiles for the game instead along with these sprites.

I'll send you V2 and V3 (current) of the sprite sets. I'm reluctant to make them public now'n days because I don't want people taking them and editing them for their own game to sell or something claiming it's their work. I'll also be using these sprites as a base for future games including my own.

Much of this part of development was within a private chat within the Semi-Official Discord channel, so I think this is the first time these sprites were publicly shown.

Glad you're enjoying it!

Well, as can be seen, things are going at a snails pace. We have a new spriter as Chaoko is unable to dedicate too much time to it due to other projects. We are now making completely original tilesets in order for the entirety of the game to look more like the comic. It's slow, but coming out rather nicely.

That sounds cool. I played through it a while ago. Out of curiosity, what are you supposed to do after you go to Tarot's in the Halloween version?

Escape back to the Sandwich house. There'll be a brief text event, then interact with the hole.

Be ready to run.

Thanks. I didn't know you could interact with that pit.

I saw a let's play of this (yes, there's a handful), and one guy I think ran around for almost an hour before he realized he could interact with the hole. Granted, nothing really conveyed that you could. :oops:
And he doesn't talk here, so he never saw our earlier explanations.

Yeah, I feel like it would have been more obvious if the other rifts had an interaction. Even if it's just descriptive text: "A large rift reveals an endless dark abyss"

Or something like that.

The ending(s) were neat though.

We'll definitely keep you in mind then. Ever since the engine switch and most of the team members getting more important real-life priorities, progress is as good as halted. We at least got a new music composer and spriter.

You don't need to get a discord account. Any major progress gets mentioned here. Just note that it will probably be a while before anything new happens just because everyone's been busy ;)

But it seems like a demo has been released right?

The demo seems kind of lacking.
Someone mentioned an engine switch, what is the current engine?

We moved from RPG Maker VX Ace to RPG Maker MV. It allowed for bigger, more comic-accurate sprites and very slightly animated enemy portraits. The Halloween Demo I made last month is in this engine.

Do note, due to the fact that several original characters will appear throughout the game and that even canon characters will take a significant amount of time to find and clean to match, character portraits are expected to be removed from the game. Not a decision I was happy with, in all honesty, but at the moment, that's the way it's going to be.

Which story are you going with? The Halloween demo story or the demo thread demo story?

Demo thread. The Halloween demo was me having fun, but deciding to make a connection. It's not necessarily "canon," but I designed it so that it might be considered as such if one wanted to.

Hey y’all.

Let’s not beat around the bush, things are obviously at a halt. Much of our needs at the moment are art assets. We have one individual doing the spriting now, which is already an inefficient way of doing things, and no battler artist as he has more important priorities now.
The choice of making an entirely new sprite set to match the comic, while a good idea, is going to be a long one, even with a decent team. We’ve had to deal with more important priorities in our personal lives, obstacles that ended up presenting themselves even when time was available, or the lack of the needed skills to aid those already trying what they can.

That’s why I’m posting this as a recruitment call. We need spriters and artists. Character sprites mostly have bases that can be used, so that should be relatively simpler. Artists, on the other hand, have their work cut out for them. They’d need to emulate the comic’s style, which I understand is asking for a lot, even more so considering the number of OCs that exist to aid the players.

Should you be interested, leave a comment here, and we’ll start talking.
