Happy Halloween, everybody. As a gift, I'm releasing some info onChrono Days Sim Date, a new sim date I'm currently working on. It's not a trick, it's a treat. But the thing is, it probably won't come out until early or mid 2011. Some weeks I don't even make progress because I'm too busy with work and school. It's just something that I'm working little by little on in my free time. It really puts too much stress on me when I make sim dates in less then 2-3 months.
So do you guys know how there was kind of a big jump in improvement fromFestival Days to Wonderland Days? Well, Chrono Days is kind of like that compared to my latest sim dates. I'm using cell shading for a crisper bolder look and I believe that the story and characters in this are a lot more deeper than the ones in my others.
Here are some other new features/things I haven't done in my other games but will in this one:
A character with an unatural hair color besides white or gray. (Well, I guess it's natural for old people...)
Six... up to SIX datable characters. *dies*
Two different world maps.
The "menu" will be located at the top right hand corner instead of just being a bar across at the top.
A "science-fiction" and "steampunk" theme instead of a "city-life" or "medieval/fantasy".
More noticeable height differences among all of the characters. Voice overs. HAHA... no. The sound files (even after compression) would make the game size way too big.
An unlockable female character. (If you're a homophobic, then don't unlock her. :'D) Well, she's more like a "best friend" that you can hang out with, give gifts to, kiss, and eventually spend the rest of your life with if you choose so. Nothing too morally wrong or suggestive, I think.
A new map system that moves with the mouse. It's pretty tight, yo.
Anywho, the story goes something like this: You live in Reton, a city that has recently gone through a revolution in technology due to the discovery of IES. Which stands for "infinite energy substance" apparently. After another long day of school, you run into your childhood friend, Teddy. Teddy tells you more about how his older brother, Landon discovered a "hole in time". This hole in time goes back 100 years from your current time, but it will close in about a month. Teddy also tells you that Landon has finally built a device called a "time jumper" that allows people to access this hole in time. You and Teddy then decide to go to the lab to ask Landon more about his new invention. When you arrive at the lab, Landon asks you if you would like to be the first person to try out his time jumper. You take his offer, but when you put the time jumper on, it goes out of control. It brings you 100 years back, but you can't get it to bring you back to the present. A young man named Nathan appears and assists you. You tell him that you're from the future, but you can't return to it because of your broken time jumper. It turns out that Nathan is a clock maker and invites you over to his shop. Nathan tries to fix your time jumper, but doesn't succeed. He offers for you to stay at his shop for the time being and you agree.
Later, after like 5 days, Teddy uses a new time jumper and comes for you. After some talk, he gives you his time jumper so that you'll be able to travel back and forth through the eras normally. BLAH BLAH BLAH ETC, ETC, GOSH THIS WAS LONG.
Saige is her default name. Of course you can rename her to anything you want. Her outfits change depending on which era she's in. Left is present, right is past.
His real name is Theodore, but he absolutely hates his real name with all of his heart... so he goes by "Teddy". His hair is blond at the beginning of the game, but he dyes it later.
Teddy's older brother. Despite his somewhat intimidating appearance, Landon is actually really shy.
An unlockable character. He's my first handicap character for he was born without hands. (THIS IS NOT EDWARD ELRIC FFFF-) To unlock him, you actually have to do something in the past that will change the present. I'm not revealing anymore than that.
He likes to build things and he's a pilot. He's the angry, angst character if you couldn't tell.
Megane bishounen...! Nathan's going to be my first character with glasses that for once isn't shy and bashful.
This is not a trap. Actually, she's not even human. She's a living doll that was made by a wizard. Before you homophobes go: "EWWW! A GIRL!!1!1" Let me tell you that she's an unlockable character. So just don't unlock her if you're scared of girl love. And again, she's like a friend that you can go on dates with. Nothing dirty.
Mr. Toko and Xolga will also be in this game. They will just be running shops though.
