Ludum Dare 24 Finished

I have completed my 4th Ludum Dare entry:

Of them, I think it is my weakest.  I think I was trying to bite off more than I can chew. ;)  The game heavily depended on story, and my story writing skills are bad,  I think I need a week to make a good story.  By the end of it I was getting into my characters and getting the flow of the writing, but I had to stop and finish other things like music and sound effects.

The game has the potential to be a fun little game. Maybe someone will volunteer to help polish it.

Until then, it goes on the pile of cool games I should polish sometime.

Timelapse going up later.

The horns of a trilemma

I am taking a writing course (Which I am going to use to write a visual novel.)

One exercise is to create three "Sentences" - the "Sentence" being like an elevator pitch for the novel.

Here are mine:

  • An eager, helpful teen is given the power to change the world with the help of a magic love journal.
  • A military cadet recovering from a head injury investigates a series mysterious attacks on campus while being plagued with strange dreams.
  • A shy reclusive teen must overcome her own fears and anxieties to find her runaway friend.
Which one should I develop into a visual novel?

Free Backgrounds for VNs

I think I made it possible for people to see the pictures I took while walking around Fredericton.

There are 48 images including some cool ones in the graveyard.

You are all welcome to use the pictures however you see fit.
