Sorry for the lackof updates. I've been very depressed. I just found out that I'm B12 deficient. One of the effects is being depressed, so hopefully things should look a bit better once my B12 levels increase .
In the meantime, I have kept up with my one game a month. I just haven't linked my April game "Potato Art" here yet. If you want, you can find it over at the Ludum Dare site.

Have you ever wanted to read a strange visual novel that makes no logical sense and is full of non-sequiturs?
Well, wait no longer!
I have created a basic online Community Visual Novel engine: http://susanthecat.com/cvn/ It uses free resources that are organized here: http://susanthecat.com/gallery/index.php
It still needs some work, but the basics are there. (Except documentation)

Thera'Py: with Eliza PyEliza Py will help you with your problems. She will ask you questions, you type in your response, then she answers you back.
I threatened to do it and I did it. I took the Eliza code an put it in Ren'Py. (ref: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ELIZA) If you must blame someone, blame the guys over at the PyBrain Thread on Lemmasoft http://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=18848

<<Insert music here>>
Did you play the game? It uses an interesting mechanic for creating content based on variables.
Anyway, it inspired me to start creating a game that uses a similar story framework (More things to do than there is time for.) The project is currently named "Ghost Day". You are an eight to ten year old that thinks they saw a ghost in their room. You go through the day investigating it. Was the ghost real? Or just your imagination?
My son has created four variations of a piece of music for it. I made a bunch of 3D rooms and FotoSketched them.
Can I get it out before January 31 to qualify for OneGameAMonth????

And what goes better with a new game than new software!
I just found the free version of Vue 11:Pioneer http://www.cornucopia3d.com/products/vue/vue_11_pioneer/ and after a slow start I am making some pretty spiffy things:
I like the 3D renders, but the painted ones blend better with the other art assets I have.
The sprites are courtesy of ComiPo!
