Weekly Summary 2023/20

Hello everyone!

In this weekly summary edition, I'll announce the launch of Enigma of Hearts. The actual public launch was last week, but it's still warm so... here it is!

I am the happiest teenage girl alive... literally. I have a great kind mom who always cooks the best food. I also have a little brother who even though is a brat, usually makes something that makes me laugh. Even though I'm trapped here in this house, life is great and wonderful. I love everything that I have right now.

But I wonder... What really lies outside of that door?

A VNDB page was also generated for Enigma of Hearts, thank you for the person who made it. πŸ’›

I'll be happy if you check it out and let me know how it is (just leave a comment on the page is enough). It's my first experience doing VN Jam with team, so I'll appreciate any feedback.

So, jumping on to what I did this week:

Art Posts

In summary, this week I'm doing fully technical stuff: implementing sprites on all scenes. I'm still working in the middle of Chapter 1 out of 4, so it's still a long way to go. I also started to do low-detailed "CGs" for some scenes where the sprites aren't enough. I may improve them when I have time.

Dev Note #54

I'm working on layeredimages on RenPy, automating them and making them functional with less commands. A kind programmer friend helps me figuring things out, but it has been harsh. I guess I need to level-up my Python skills.

Other Things

My pet rabbit Toto jumped to rainbow bridge this morning... hopefully, happily. I hope we can meet again, some day. πŸ‡β˜οΈ I think I'll create an original character for Toto to commemorate her.

Initial concept – she's a rebellious princess bunny!
  • I'm still listening to FTISLAND this week hahaha, but only a minute ago I opened YouTube and found this recently premiered old song by ZARD: ζΊγ‚Œγ‚‹ζƒ³γ„ (Swaying Thoughts). ZARD is one of my favourite artist to listen to during my teenage years... I think I'll be listening to her song more from now on (for a while).
  • My current forecast for Blooming Chimes is that I won't be able to submit the entire thing by the end of Otome Jam/Josei Jam. I'm investing in too many CGs for the scenes and this is crucial because I don't narrate. I hope I'm able to at least deliver half, if not, one chapter is also fine. πŸ˜€

Thank you everyone who joins me this week. Let's do our best again next week onwards! Have a good weekend!
