Post news RSS [Mini Update #02] NPC Character: Vivi

Designing one of many Ciel Fledge characters and their various body gesture.

Posted by on

Hello, welcome again to another weekly Ciel Fledge mini update! This time we are in Mini Update ep#02. I will try to post a weekly mini update to keep you guys who are interested in our project stay in touch!

Part of the fun in making the game is designing the character and figuring out their expression to be used in dialogues. The character to introduce this time is Vivi. One of many NPCs in the game and Ciel’s childhood friend. She will grow up and develop relationship with Ciel in the game.

Below is a glimpse of the dialogue system in action with Vivi in the game. Contemplating making fancy animation like all those cool game using Live2D, but in the end we resorted to just “emulate” it with simple motion and "breathing" animation considering our *cough* insufficient resources *cough*.


Sketch for her various body expression. Happy, angry, surprised.
