Images for you

I never know exactly what to show on here, so here are a bunch of images from all over my computer!

Information and Design


 Lately I've been wrestling with the information in the story, trying to break it down into different sections and get my head around exactly what we're telling the player, and when, and how - and what it looks like when we do. It's more difficult than animating! Hopefully when we get this all completely finalised, it will be much easier to put it all together.



Meanwhile, Catherine continues to produce amazing background designs - this game is going to have some serious atmosphere, I look forward to playing it in the dark at night by myself.

Action!



Music by Raphael Meyer
Edwyn Tiong as Grimoire
Shudo Ranmaru as Sally

Everything you see is still potentially work-in-progress. Enjoy!

Sally Spears

Got her final 4 poses drawn up. The yawn/stretch at the end might make more sense when I animate it, or it might end up even more confusing - since she turns her body one way and her head another...

I tried to draw her as someone who holds her mouth open naturally, since I tend to just draw a lazy black line for my mouths. It gives her a slightly different feel, I think. I also had to include a pose in which she plays with her hair. I can use it for when she's bored, or when she's nervous.

New animation and background designs

Since Officer James is sitting down and wrapped in a blanket (he never gets out of the boat during this game) he can't move his body much. So I tried to get a bit more movement out of his arms and his head. Also, I always enjoy looking at the Onion Skins afterwards.

We also have some new background sketches from Catherine! This area doesn't really have a name, yet. It's one of the areas with fewer plot-related clues, but two characters will be waiting here.

Grimoire's Animation

Since Catherine is dealing with all background art, my biggest job for this game is to animate all the characters!

Why is there a Museum in a swamp?

Hey, good question....
