Hehe. ^____^

Yeah, I noticed certain people liked us on FB. >> <<

Me:
I've been trying to come up with equipment.

I sit here, and sit here and nothing comes to my head. I love databasing (I know, I'm weird), but I cannot for the life of me think of much at the moment.

I would think of cool things, like "Scarf of the Northern Winds", only to find out it would get all condensed and stuff. ;_;

I'm trying really hard not to use other games for inspiration and to be original.

*deep breath*

Okay, Strawberry. You can do it. ^^;

My Fiance:
He's been busy spriting the first boss - which you see in the first flashback scene (which sounds and looks fun). Then he'll add the monsters you fight. My reasoning for starting the game with a flashback is because there's only a short beginning scene before you get to fight! YAY! ACTION!

So he still has to finish the battle system (which is uber hard for him, because of all the custom content it has). And he might even switch from our current pixel portraits to something much more simple to make things go faster.

I honestly feel so bad for him for doing all this work. :(

Our friend:
He's been busy with coming up with monsters, bosses, and story concepts. And weapons too (if I had to do weapons as well as equipment, I'd go INSANE). Hehe.

The Writer:
She helped me do a lot things this past weekend - such as writing the To-Do list (yes we have one of those) and creating the outline for the demo. She plans to do all the dialogue for the NPCs so we can actually interact with them and stuff.

Pictures:
Here are some WIP screens of the flashback (includes WIP cutscenes and no wildlife)

Clouds.

I think my fiance says one day he'll create much better-looking clouds. o.o

May I suggest using a fog for the clouds? That'd look pretty cool.

Other than that, it looks really awesome. I can't wait!

O_oa

Well the first one means a Lovely Orb will only become a Lovely Orb +1 or +2, etc.

The second one means every town will have menial upgrades (Lovely Orb > Pretty Orb > Elegant Orb) and none of them will boost anything. When you actually try though, you can obtain a Sunbeam Orb, Giant's Tear, Celestial Sphere, etc.

I hope that helps.

Looks good! Though, how old is she there? She has quite the chest for being so "young".

She's 20 years old there. XD

Lols. Not THAT young.

I should say "Flashback Narie".
