Just a small progress update this time.
I spend most of the time optimizing and doing the level design. In visual novel term, I’m making the background. tongue
But since this is 3D game now, we call it level design then.
Please take a look at the video.
There’s video in this post, so if you can’t see it in your email you might as well just come to my blog and watch it there.
So I decide to pursue the “3D” route.
3D background with 2D anime style character just like real visual novel will look like.
Look at the video and tell me what do you think?
1. Setting Up Specific Goals
You set a specific goal for yourself so you won’t get lost or won’t do unnecessary things that will distract you from the success path.
You might seem busy, but doesn’t mean that you are walking up the ladders.
You might be just walking up and down in infinite loop.
You don’t move anywhere.
Thus, set yourself a specific goal and follow it! wink
If you’re my friend and my circle, most probably you already know that now I’m on my way to finish “A Day With Nana“.
It’s just a simple visual novel game that I’m making with Tyrano Builder, a free assets provided by my friends, my own self fantasy storyline as well as my original music composition.
I’ll be putting on simple voice over by a real Japanese voice actress too!
Sound ambitious huh?
It actually quite a simple project if you actually give it a try.
No programming, just provide your art materials and storyline and you’re done. Though in this case the only art material that I provide is just my pieces of music.
Do You Like Robot Girl?
Well, rejoice if you do because after a day with Nana, I will make a game somewhere about acquiring, hunting and assembling your own robot girl. Cyborg girl to be precise because she is half humans. Artificial human. Lel.
I’ve some candidates assets that I’ve been keeping my eyes on. Just look at this and tell me what you think when you look at her?
Yeah right… You just have to make her yours! Haha
And here’s some video that I capture using my phone.
What do you think?
Exciting huh? bigsmile

At first, this project only aims to get half an hour game play from two buddies play around in their small studio, trying to be productive by making impressive portfolio of past works projects.
But then, I became so greedy and ambitious.
I am then put myself on the stretch goal.
Instead of making a simple story visual novel game, I want it to have at least 1 – 2 hours of game play. I also want to record original theme music for the characters and maybe extra one for each mood.
After that, I become more ambitious.
I want to give the character a voice!
But to give it full voice, will be impossible for me.
So the voices will be a simple expressive voice to make the conversation feels more alive.
Anyway, for those of you who is interested to test out this beta version, please download it from the link below.
