Fools Helper Released!

“Love isn’t easy. For hopeless romantic Brian and struggling writer Lee, the pursuit of love has been difficult. That is, until they meet the heroine! Can she help fill their lives with romance? Maybe even find some herself?

Everyone’s a fool in love, but the heroine is here to help!”

Fool’s Helper is a slice-of-life romantic comedy that consists of a prologue that splits into two routes, each with two endings, a friendship ending and a romance ending. The player chooses which route they would like to play immediately after the prologue. Endings are determined by simple choices during the routes, such as how the heroine reacts to a situation.

Summer Special [Nanoreno2016] Demo released!

-TopdX

 

PLOT:

Cereza has had the misfortune of being temporarily “tasked” to work at her grandmother’s convenience store, Angie’s Mart. While her grandmother recovers from a recent accident, she’ll spend the week manning the store. It’s all good though. Because if everything goes well she’ll earn just enough money from her time working there to finally pack up and leave her dump of a hometown. All she has to do is make it through the next week and she’ll be well on her way to greener pastures. A simple enough task on its own but not so much when circumstances throw a few uncalled for coworkers into the equation.

• Three out of seven days in game playable
• Two possible romance interest

 

STAFF:

WRITERS: Ellisama | Ferdokki | Hazel-Bun

SPRITES, GUI, & CGS: kingv

About This Game

WARNING: MATURE CONTENT. This game contains disturbing imagery, violence, flashing images, sudden and loud noises, mature themes, and strong sexual content. Viewer discretion is advised.

“Love is both poison and cure, both knife and remedy.”
Rosa’s best friend, Catherine, is dead and she is sure Catherine’s betrothed, Marquis Guilleme is to blame. Mother says so. Mother says he has to pay with his life. Although, she knows by now Guilleme is no ordinary man. He is tainted. Inhuman. A monster. He cannot be killed by usual means. To seek the best revenge, she must find out all his secrets and destroy him. But will her own dark desires consume her or liberate her?

No matter.

Mother will tell her what to do.

Set in the romantic 18th century France, play as the third person point of view character of Mother — a unique twist to the visual novel decision making medium. Decide the fate of the characters, scold or console, argue or assent… Just don’t be surprised if they start to question your commands.

Random Child Generator for Echidna

Its been gathering dust for a while, but i finally started work again on ‘Echidna’ my, for want of a better description, ‘Elementary School Teacher’ sim.

I already had the bulk of the map and calendar systems up and running, so currently i’m focusing on the characters and associated menus.

 

And here’s my latest piece, a random character generator. Focusing on children currently, hoping to generate all your prospective students.

Currently it generates all associated information and stats, as well as randomizing the appearance.

 

ezgif.com-optimize

 

Still needs a bit of polish of course, and provision for adding limits to whats generated etc, but it’ll do to start. 😀

Who is Mike finally makes it from Greenlight to full release on Steam. Great work by everyone involved. :3

You wake up with an aching head and the world out of focus. In front of you is a man accusing you of being “fake”. He looks exactly like you, down to the last scar and pimple, has the same memories, the same voice and the same personality.

But who is lying and who is telling the truth? Who is fake and who is real?
