Hello, everyone! It’s been a long while since I’ve last posted, but I come with some changes and updates concerning The Witching Hour!
Story: I’ve gone back and revised a few of the characters and plot points, including Kowen. After a brainstorming session with my musician Butler, he brought up a good point about Kowen acting more as a plot point rather than a character. So, for the moment, I’ll try to see if I can switch him out who would work much better alongside Claire, one of the main characters.
In addition to that, I’ve fleshed the two main kingdoms in the story out a bit more.
Manituk is about half the size of Helitan, and has a large mountainous range cutting through the land. Most of the soil in Manituk is poor in nutrients and too thin for agricultural means. Their main staple product are various types of minerals and metals which can be found deep within the mountains.
Helitan is to the south of Manituk, encompassing a large southern portion of the continent. A very small portion of Manituk’s mountain range hits the northern border of Helitan, but not by much. Most of the land consists of lush hills and plains, with rich-nutrient soil. As such, they are one of the main providers of many different types of fruits and vegetables for the rest of its continent.
Between these two warring kingdom exists a small chain of islands called the Jade Isles. Since a miniscule portion of Manituk’s mountain range exists to the east side of the Jade Isles, they also have a handful of mineral resources. In addition, they also have fairly rich soil much like Helitan, although they do not come near the amount of different crops Helitan has. Due to most of its land borders consists of coastlines, their main product is seafood.
Art: I’ve finally started on finalized sprites for the demo, since I’ve been mainly working with writing instead of art for the past two or so months. I’m not completely finished with them, but here they are. (left to right: Claire, Kowen, Silver Tongue)
I’ve also started on one of the CGs that will be seen in the demo. It’s Claire coming out of a book, and stuff!
Anyway, I think that’s good enough for now. I’ll try hard to update at least once a month starting from now, heh.
Really, thanks for all of your support, everyone! :)
