Visual Novel Project: Summer Paradise


Update: I've finally finished this! Yaaay! :) Please check it out here! Thank youuuu~

Well, it's summer~

I can certainly feel it now. -___-

Hmm... ahh, I just have to say it...

I decided to take a short break from Seasons Of Love. Just a week-long break. So far, there are around 14k+ words on the main script by the way. :) And since I was stuck on one part, I decided that it was time to take a short rest from that story in order to refresh my mind and also to think up of new ideas.

However, after playing Nacira, I was inspired to create another visual novel! ^_^

I just thought, "I like Nacira because the maker included Javanese culture in it. Why not make a visual novel set in the Philippines?" And so... tada~! The visual novel Summer Paradise, currently a work in progress, was born.

The player name is changeable, although the default is Casey.

You will be playing as a teenage girl who is returning to her hometown after nine long years. She rekindles old friendships and makes new ones, while reminiscing about the past. Her grandmother tells her that she has to find a date for the upcoming town festival, or else she will be set up with a guy she doesn't even know. Will she manage to choose a guy, or will she be forced to be partnered up with a stranger?

I have no logo yet. Huhuhu. But since I challenged myself to make this visual novel within 5 days, I used free resources, and everything is already in place, except for the story and the programming itself.

Here are the current statistics: 

The game contains 1,222 screens of dialogue.
These screens contain a total of 9,030 words,
for an average of 7.4 words per screen.
The game contains 13 menus.

It's certainly going to be a lot shorter than Seasons of Love, but I really enjoy making this game. ^_^ It's just so fun to make visual novels that are set in your own hometown. :3 I actually kinda based the whole game on my life. Hahaha. But the bottom line is, making this is really so much fun.

Like I said, I got all these from free resources. These are not mine, okay, guys? :) All these awesome art belong to their respected owners. They may not know me, but still, I thank them so much for all of these!

Sprites: From BASSnovel, by 櫻野露 and 可蘿露卡露琪.
Backgrounds: BASSnovel
Music: Noveler's Material

For the past two days, this is all what I've been doing. Hahaha! :)) I've been working non-stop on it actually. Whew. Quite tiring, but it's also very enjoying! ^^

I hope you guys check it out once it's done! :)
Thank you very much!
