Getting warmer

July 22nd, 2013 by Graph

Hello folks, Graph here! It’s been a while since our last update, but our projects are still coming along.

Back in April and May, I took those two months out to work on another project. Not Touhou-related, but there’s mecha; I guess that’s why my skills were called on! It’s a space-age strategy RPG made using Ren’py, the same engine that DSD’s VNs run on. It’s being written and programmed by a couple of other guys from Lemma Soft. It’s still in the design stages, but I’ll link more information when the project has some Internet presence.

Anyway, Touhou Mecha! Chapter 2 has made good progress; the animation, sounds and character sprites are in place, and most of what’s left is finishing up the new mecha sprites, BGs and CGs that are currently in TM as sketches.

We upgraded to Ren’py 6.15, which has additive blending! It should make it easier to do those nice glowy effects that mecha battles are so fond of.

And here’s a sneak preview of Marisa’s AM, the Chroma! The three magician friends have their own variation of the Chroma with different weapons.

I’m aiming for a release of Touhou Mecha Chapter 2 sometime August. Look forward to it!

In other news, it’s business as usual for ESR, and we’re still plugging away at that mountain of writing. Currently the writers are trying to finish up one ending to get an idea what they want the ending lengths to be.

    I must say I’m pretty impressed!

    Keep it up. Can’t wait for eastern starlight romance to be finished.

    Hmm, I hoped for a soon release of ESR, though by the sound of it, that’s not going to happen.
    But glad to hear you’re still working on it, I would hate to see that one being abandoned, I’m looking forward to it far too much.

    Also, I wouldn’t mind some more frequent posts on this blog, I feared you died several times now, at least some life signs would be appreciated ^^

    Keep up your good work!

    more frequent posts would be nice.

  7. Aiko1010 says:

    It doesn’t bother me, but I think that more frequent posts couldn’t hurt, even if there isn’t many updates, even if it’s short, just to prove that you’re not dead. I’m kinda patient, and I know that even if this website isn’t updated much, there’s still work done, but I that’s not everybody’s case.

  8. Travis says:

    so, i think we all agree that “more frequent posts” is a good idea.

  9. H2O says:

    I’m going to agree with ‘more frequent posts’, yeah.

  10. Graph says:

    Good advice. I’ll try to update at least once a month from now on while these projects are still going. Thanks for staying tuned everyone!

  11. Travis says:

    thanks Graph!

  12. Aiko1010 says:

    Thanks! This’ll help to catch people’s attention, so that your projects won’t be forgotten.
