I’m a little late with announcing this, but due to some recent developments I’ve decided to take a small break from actively developing p!cn7 for now, which should last until somewhere in May. I figured it’d only be fair for people that follow the blog here to mention this, as it means new content posts until May are unlikely after this one.
So what is going on?
First of all, I’ve decided to stop developing the game in RPG Maker VX and I want to switch over to a different version of RPG Maker, since the tileset limitations drive me a bit nuts.
I am also considering to remake Kai’s apartment, thought it shouldn’t be too noticable. Because of VX’ tileset limitations I had made them entirely outside of VX itself using Paint and Easy Paint Tool SAI, after which I imported them as panoramas. This works, but it also means a heavier file size and it’s harder to make variations of environments with everything set in stone like this.
I also want to take this moment to tell you about two amazing people that are helping me with making this game:
Lord Ishcabibble - She’s a very good friend of mine and really good with scripts. Her skills cover both VX and Ace, which makes her a very valuable team member, as I personally am clueless when it comes to doing more than really basic edits to any piece of code in RPG Maker.
Chase - Another good friend of mine and an awesome musician. He has already made one complete song and is working on some others as well. I might post up some of his works in the future, though I’d first need to talk to him about that.
Since both me and Chase will be busy with school and other things for a while, I think version 0.00 will be released sometime this summer, though I can’t say in what month exactly and it all depends on how well transitioning to the other software version will go.
Not really an update on p!cn7 itself, but I added a page in the sidebar that lists other Yume Nikki fangame development blogs. I figure that most people following this blog (if not all) are interested in Yume Nikki fangames and/or game development in and of itself, so I thought it’d be a good addition to the blog.
You can send me an ask, reblog/reply to this post or send me Fan Mail with your own devblog or blogs I missed, if you want to.
Something slightly different from the usual - I decided to sketch some of the protagonists of Yume Nikki fangames. I’ve played all of these that have downloads, which is all of them except for Calalini and p!cn7. I included Jackie from Calalini since it’s a game made by a long-time friend of mine, even though it has no downloadable version yet.
As for posting more content more directly related to the game - I might post some actual screenshots of the game soon. I have been working a lot on the environments, but since RPG Maker VX has a higher resolution than RPG Maker 2003 does progress might be slower than it is with the average Yume Nikki fangame.
