  • Happy Easter Update

    Happy Easter! / April Fools tomorrow! I decided to take my time on working on the intro. The recap for the intro will be one big scrolling image. I’m putting more effort in cleaning up the line art and putting line weights. I bought the new version of Manga Studio and it’s really neat. Spells…

  • Intro First Attempt

    Midterm + Project + Sick = no update last week :( Anyway I’ve been trying to work on the intro and I’m thinking of using a paper ink style of recapping the previous events. Here is my first attempt. I am not completely satisfied with it and I’m probably going to redo it tomorrow.

  • Backgrounds

    Yay! Backgrounds are all done. I’m working on the minigames and gameplay polish now. I think story and cutscenes will be last on the list.

  • New New Dungeons

    Been working on just dungeons for the past 2 weeks. Current progress is 22/28 for the dungeon backgrounds and 2/28 for the battle backgrounds (the first game only had 5 backgrounds). Still a long way to go (-_-). Here are some of the indoor dungeons. 

  • Dungeon Overhaul

    I redid the dungeons and added new ones. They are now more detailed compared to the old one. I was also able to add more variety to the floors and walls, so each room looks significantly different. On the screenshot we have (from top left to bottom right) plains, desert valley, highland forest, and snow.…

  • Sketches

    Found these while going through my files. Here are the sketches for the game art from last week: I had to individually draw them on separate layers, so I can move them around wherever I wish. Here is also an earlier concept sketch.

  • Character Ultimates

    Here are the character action poses. They will be used for the title screen and some of the promotional art. They will also be used in game as portraits when using ultimate spells and in cutscenes. Thank you guys so much for the support. I really appreciate it and It really keeps me going. 2013…

  • Happy Holidays!

    Happy Holidays everybody! Have fun! WOOOOOOO!

  • More Enemies

    More enemies have been added to the game. There are currently about 120+ monsters in the game and I am continuing to add more for the optional quests. Bosses are next on the list.

  • New NPC and Speed Drawing

    Congratulations to Cris Martin for creating a really interesting NPC! I found him really fun to draw. I recorded myself drawing the NPC: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f-oHTFGxlu0 I really liked all of the submitted ideas and would like to thank everyone for participating. Maybe we could do more of these in the future!
