Let it be a lesson to all; if you say you will do something, think things through before you accept! I’m really gung-ho about getting Cloud Story part 1 done, but now a prior commitment has come back to zombie grab me. Although, I will continue to work on Cloud Story, any demo release I may have wanted to get out by the summer will undoubtably be pushed back to fall.
The paid gig I agreed to work on is for Japanese to English image editing for an english translation of the visual novel School Days HQ on behalf of JAST USA.
If you’re *18 or older*, then I recommend checking it out when it’s released! (Although I’ve yet to play it… or watch the anime…)
Anyways, I want to blaze through my work so I can get back to Cloud Story. (Last night I came up with basic sketches of approx. 70% of Cloud Story part 1’s areas. It’s looking good. Now I just need to make sprites for them…)
Sorry if I’m disappointing anyone… But, I can stay focused and work faster knowing Cloud Story is waiting after work! I’ll continue to make blog posts to keep you updated, as progress won’t stop; but it certainly will take a hit until I finish my work.
In the meantime if anyone wants to ask questions, talk about what they would like to see, or just tease me for not starting on this sooner… x_X Feel free to do so… ;D
For anyone curious, I’ll leave info on School Days project here :
School Days HQ is a visual novel…
Visual Novels are an interested medium because they are longer than movies, complete with music, voices, sound effects and artwork. Plus they have an element of limited interactivity through choices that effect the story throughout the game. And some also have gameplay sections like regular games.
I fell in love with VNs because of a few really good ones got translated into english.
If anyone wants recommendations from me feel free to ask, or see what I’ve rated some novels here : My Visual Novel List
Some are 18+, and some are not (and some have patches to make it all-ages). Just a heads up.
