Hello, guys! How are you all doing? First, I want to apologize for the lack of news during these past two weeks. A lot of our members were swamped with exams, but most of them just began to work again now that they’re free! But still, we were not completely inactive for the past few days. To make it up to you, let me present some new content you might not have seen yet!
Do you recognize Akira? One of our perky heroines that we introduced on our previous post? Well, here is a more final version of her with shading, linearts and coloring! Cute, isn’t she?
– Also, I believe it is time we share with you the synopsis of our story :
“Yama Ishimoto is enjoying his last year of high school with his longtime friend, Rui Haward, an energetic and somewhat serious young girl who sometimes finds it difficult to express her true feelings. Recently joined by the burly Masato Kurogane and the moronic Yahiko Ikari, this dynamic group of friends breeze through school, their life filled with hilarious antics and hijinks.
Contrasting their joyous lifestyle, an inexplicable series of murders in the city begins acquiring greater attention as the body count steadily rises. At first, Yama chooses to simply ignore these morbid incidents, but the unpredictability of fate, or rather an eccentric freelance detective, forces him at the forefront of the murder investigation.
What will Yama uncover . . . ? “
– Finally, a few posts back, I mentioned that we would have features in Lucid9’s engine, and I guess it’s time to reveal them.
You will be able to use your phone during the story (Receive calls, SMS, listen to music, read the news feed…), a bit like in Steins;Gate. The use of this phone would be optional, and only features extra stuff. You will have the choice to disable it if you do not wish to be bothered by it.
The phone’s design isn’t final, and will be revised. I’d also like to point out that you can see one of the backgrounds we’re working on at the moment in this picture! And who might this strange girl be, calling, Shigure…?
And last but not least, I’m glad to announce that an amazing composer decided to join and work with us! We are really excited to have so many talented people interested in joining our team!
Well, that’s all for today! I want to thank all the people showing their support! It’s really encouraging, and we’ll do all that we can in order to release a Visual Novel you’ll all hopefully enjoy playing!
