About Story of Alexia with 0 comments by iSolsticeDay on Sep 20th, 2014

See, I'm not happy with my friend leaving, and in fact I still do care about her genuinely - my feelings have been hurt drastically, but I don't hate her, in fact I can't believe it happened - but I have to move on, and not let these doubts and cognitive dissonance influence my potentional game development career. It's sad, yes, but if you want to be part of the world, you have to accept how the world works, and learn to cope / deal with it. But at the same time also accept the good things in life, and that's diffcult, but I can do that.

Sentimential rambling aside, here's a new update for Story of Alexia!

The forest level has been expanded and finished (this screenshot is a day or two old, however and the 'Secretive Forest' has been changed into 'Sagittarius Forest' like the first level, basically making it more like a giant area instead of a level. There's always more to discover later on in the game, as pathways that were previously unaccesible and / or blocked off, are now unlocked as you progress through the plotline. The 'Lost in Gaia Forest' Soundtrack by Desolo Zantas adds a whole new atmosphere.

Something else; I have added in a black-skinned NPC character. I've always been bothered by the fact there's no black characters in most games; why are they all Caucasian, white, pale, etc? I find that kinda racist, actually. There's not only white people in real life, either. I know friends who are Asian, or come from Middle-Eastern countries (most of them being adopted) so why are there only white characters in most video games? It doesn't sit well with me. Some people are apparently afraid of adding in different colors of characters, for some reason. So, here's Zaire, a completely normal NPC, with a developed personality, thought out character and role:

Zaire enters!

She has kind of a funny and / or quirky personality, like a teenage girl, basically. She tells a different story to you each weekday (via a script that checks which day it is on your machine / PC) and it's usually a fun fact about Sagittarius Town, the lore, or the characters who live in the town (including herself). She will probably appear in a few cutscenes too later on. She's an awesome character, IMO, and I hope you think so too. Say no to racism.

Then, finally, I've finished up the Trance limit break from earlier!

I love it! It's obtainable in gameplay now too; before the boss fight of the Sagittarius Forest's second act. This 'second act' happens after beating the boss of the Stormfields, who will be redesigned too (as it was a character of Neko / Kimberley / my friend who left) so no Nema anymore. She'll be renamed Fuu, and look more like the actual Ame-onna of legends. I designed her, and I'll be showing her down here:

Fuu the cute Rain Girl enters!

She looks cute (and is, actually) but beware; she's not really into this 'humanity' thing and will fry you with lightning without warning. That's her signature attack in the bossfight.

Its not all that bad. With the right DLLs you can make game good enough to be a current-gen game.

Developing meant something years ago.

Developing has always had a stigma of being the realm of the socially outcast and slightly autistic, but it seems like in the past few years, more and more indie game developers are given this mystique, where they are idolized and quoted by the even more socially outcase and autistic, huddled gaming-nerd masses. Development used to mean nothing. It's finally starting to be something you can proudly tell people when they ask what you do for a living, knowing that gone are the days of the stereotyping and ostrisizing of programmers.

Great to make both easy, simple games in minutes for beginners, and tons of options for those who are willing to go one step further. Game maker has been used to create commercial games, for iPods, iPhones, iPads and psp. The game maker community on Yoyogames is strong (well over 100 000 members) and very supportive. Posting your game on this community can result in it being published on an international scale, in addition to being featured and played by thousands of people.Yoyogames have also released…
