Faery Tale a Visual Novel by *OokamiKasumi The suggester wrote: "This game is well thought out - easy to navigate, fun to play (some quite nice eye candy in there too) and all resource providers have been credited whether offsite or here on DA. The illsutration and layout are beautiful - the storyline(s) are contemporary with a slight macabre sprinkling of what I can only guess is inspired by The Grimm's Fairytales... You'll have hours of fun exploring each storyline and being awe-inspired by the hard work and attention to detail put into creating it." ( Suggested by zememz and Featured by Lyricanna )

You'll need to download it again, and watch out for your Virus Protections. They tend to pull things out. Also, you cannot play the game without fully extracting the zipped file.

Personally, I preferred the Independent Tea Shop Owner ending the best, then The King's Mistress, then The Faery Ending. I also deliberately tried to avoid getting endings with the 'Wolf Character'

The fairy had to be my favorite path in the game. I adored the soft music you'd chosen for your game and the art was lovely. This was fun to play and only took a few minutes to figure out how to go about it. ^^ It was one of the first visual novels I'd ever played.

The characters are all composites from photos that have been filtered in Photoshop to look like paintings. In fact, just about Everything in that game was once a photo.

I'm glad you like the music!

Well I finally got around to playing this game, I know I meant to do it a while ago but things were pretty hectic back then. Boy this thing must have been a beast to make! Just from having made attempts at this medium before I can appreciate how much work must have gone into the visuals, producing them not only with such quality but also quantity. I really liked their style, I thought it was refreshingly unusual, the details were luscious and – my personal weakness – bright pretty colours!! :la:

Planning out all the dialogue trees so they looped together and made sense would have required a lot of time and beta-testing too. I'd say it paid off because I was quite impressed with how much freedom this game gave me. Sometimes even in professional games they may give you a choice but it can feel kinda superficial and that's not how I felt here.

I read in the comments you were afraid it was simplistic/boring – well you can definitely cross out boring! However, I do acknowledge I would have liked more fleshing out in the story at some parts but I can understand why you wouldn't have done so. I imagine some ideas had to be cut out due to time and resources which is a shame.

This is getting kinda long, I'll close by saying the sinister sorcerer was my favourite xD What an evil, evil bastard!

This game is totally your fault. :)
-- YOUR game inspired mine. Seriously. I am utterly in love with your librarian, and I wish to God that I had your skill at drawing characters.

Yes, making my game was a beast, but it was also incredibly fun. The programming was much easier to do than I thought. FINDING all the damned images to Photoshop was the most time-consuming, and frustrating. (Do you have any idea how hard it is to find models that are NOT looking directly at the camera?! Do you have any idea how hard it is to find multiple images of the Same Model?!)

I'm a sucker for bright colors too. :)

...Planning out all the dialogue trees so they looped together and made sense...

I used a Mind-Mapping program called FreePlane to set up all the story options (and consequences). --> [link]

With FreePlane, you can test all the options (and fix the dead ends,) before you even open Renpy! The bubbles are collapsible, so you can hide all the 'consequences' until they're chosen. Plus you can put in local hyperlinks to jump from bubble to bubble, so you don't have to make hundreds of copies of certain 'consequences.'

...I would have liked more fleshing out in the story at some parts but I can understand why you wouldn't have done so.

It would have meant making a Lot more character images, and I just don't have the resources.

...the sinister sorcerer was my favourite xD What an evil, evil bastard!...

LOL! Thank you! I had to have at least one truly Bad character.

By the way, if you ever want to make another game, I'd be happy to make backgrounds for you, and act as beta-tester? You have a real gift for dialogue.

I'll take the compliment but it must have been one heck of an inspiration for it to happen before I even posted my game :XD:

Oooh, making another game would be quite fun but as of yet I have no plans. I'm a student so I'd have to finish my exams first before I start considering such a demanding project. I'd be honoured for any help with beta-testing you'd like to offer and I'd be just as happy to beta-test back. It would also be interesting to see what kind of artistic effects we could get working together and I'd offer my assistance for your games too but no promises there. At least for the moment anyway, my plate is a bit full.

Yes, once you get something of a handle on programming it's not too bad. I'd like to learn flash at some point, Ren'Py is cool but I think having to download it puts people off. FreePlane sounds like a neat thing I'll have to check it out, might be useful for revising too XDXD

Eh...? Holy crap... A Time Warp!!!

You're a student eh...?
-- If you think you're busy now, wait till you have a full-time job. Mwa-ha-haaa! That's when most artists drop off the face of the earth and nobody sees them anywhere until some time around their second kid. Really.

I'd be honoured for any help with beta-testing you'd like to offer and I'd be just as happy to beta-test back.

DONE!

It would also be interesting to see what kind of artistic effects we could get working together...

I actually have a technique for backgrounds that might work with your style of characters.
--> [link] The characters are a little blurry because I had to make them almost twice as large.

Flash seems like too much work for me, and finding a site that will allow the kind of traffic a game needs sounds...costly.

You're going to love FreePlane, especially for planning out a multi-path game.

I actually do have a fair bit of free time but apparently I'm supposed to be using it to stuff my nose down textbooks - a somewhat foreign concept to me for I am accustomed to frolicking on the vast open planes of the internet. But yeah, after my exams it's like months of nothing and I'm planning to waste time artistically while I still can dammit! Before Real Work comes in and destroys my sheltered, middle-class ass :XD:

That picture... is actually very impressive to me, I really am surprised with how well that matches. I'm one of those people who has a bunch of different ideas for stories but doesn't always know which one to pick and that is reeeally starting to tip the equilibrium :XD: For now I will marinate on some ideas, work on a plot and dig you up on the subject after April/May. Actually I'm in partial disbelief someone as awesome as you would even offer to help...

I've been wanting to learn flash for a while anyway, I'm pretty sure dA lets you upload flash and if not there's newgrounds.

When that time comes, maybe then I can be of assistance?

Good!

For now I will marinate on some ideas, work on a plot and dig you up on the subject after April/May.

I look forward to your thoughts.

Actually I'm in partial disbelief someone as awesome as you would even offer to help...

[Rolls eyes...] If I was so awesome, I'd be able to make decent characters for my games. I can't.

I'll admit that I'm pretty good with backgrounds, and a damned fine story plotter, but characters...? I have to borrow from photos and that limits me in body language and expressions.

I've been wanting to learn flash for a while anyway, I'm pretty sure dA lets you upload flash and if not there's newgrounds.

You play with that if you like, I'll stick to making your background graphics.

By the way, I get all my game music from here: Jamendo --> [link] It's free to use as long as you credit the musician/album in your project.
