One Dream Continuation

Journal Entry: Mon Jan 28, 2013, 10:10 AM

...Well, I honestly thought that this discarded project would stay a discarded project, but...yeah. I guess all the comments and urging I got from you guys kinda motivated me to pick it up again. That, and while browsing through my old files for this game, I kinda realized that I really did have fun while making it (despite it taking forever just to get the main menu done and I had spent hours ripping my hair out trying to get the hang of flash). I'll still be using flash to make it, because Renpy's too restricting, and Novelty's too confusing (for me, at least). So that means I'll have to work on everything again from scratch. I'll still be using the old drawings I made for it (because redesigning would take up too much effort that I would rather use making the actual game), but I'll be making some slight adjustments here and there. One example being to get rid of the navigation concept where you are the one who decides where to go. Instead, I'll be making it more of a visual novel thing--to make things...ya know, easier for me :>

Also, unlike before when I was just starting this game, I'll only be working on it during my uber free-time, or when I simply have nothing to do and am not in the mood to draw. That being said, It could take me maybe half a year just to finish Nate's route.

But I've come to realize that it's simply impossible for me to finish this game alone, so I might be needing your help. If you know anything about coding and scripting in flash and have a lot of free time on your hands, I could really use your help on this =u=" If you're interested in volunteering, please send me a note and we can talk about the details through there ^^
At the moment, I can't do anything without a loading screen, something that I'll probably never be able to make. So if you have any experience or simply know about how to make one, speak to meh! ...please.
Getting my hands on a decent loading screen practically decides whether or not I'll be picking up the game again apparently. Besides that, I think I can manage the rest on my own. But of course, it would  be faster if more people would volunteer to work with me on this one.

Just a few questions though, to help with the game design:

1) Should I keep the main menu design and functions?
2) Should I keep the faint fading of the text between each dialog?
3) Should I make bad endings for the game as well?
4) Should the protagonist also appear on the screen during his/her dialog, or will a profile box be more than enough?

And some things that I would appreciate volunteers for:

1) Loading Screen
2) Music & Audio (If possible, your own creation)
3) Script editors & Proofreaders
4) Background Artists
5) Game Testers (Should be familiar with flash 8 and be able to fix errors)
6) Adding a 'Save & Load' Feature
7) and possibly, Voice Actors

Again, I would appreciate any help you guys have to offer.
Hopefully this game can actually be finished.

Thanks, and stay awesome! 8D

I would love to perhaps volunteer to help out with BG art and/or voice acting! I am a girl, but I can do male or female voice acting, or both. If you need any examples for anything in the future, send me a note!

Hi KatKat-Tan, I am so pleased to hear that your going to continue one dream. I am not much help for you but I can answer the questions that you put up. 1. I think you should keep the main menu design and functions. 2. I think you should keep the faint fading of the text between each dialogue 3. Honestly this one I have no idea XD 4. The protagonist should most definitely appear on the screen, it is really cool when you see him/her

I hope this helped you in some way. I am super excited for one dream XD

I'd be a pretty good fit for a voice actor if you still need one. I'm 18, took classes in acting (mainly voice) when I was younger, and we have a music studio set up in my house so I can record in fairly high quality.♥
AiLoveItachi Featured By Owner Apr 7, 2015  Student Digital Artist
Hey! I played what was there in your game and I really like it! If you need help, I'm great at backgrounds and Voice Acting, I can also try the music part if you still need it. Message me if you need help? Thanks! Love your story! (I'm a girl)

Ahh, it would be so awesome if you continue this, but I guess it rather isn't possible T.T
Katkat-Tan Featured By Owner Jan 17, 2015

And with how busy I am with work and other things, I just dont really have the time for it rn x'D
komet-a Featured By Owner Jan 18, 2015  Student Digital Artist
Yeah, I know, making a vn game isn't easy and can take a lot of time, especially if you're working on it alone. However, I'm glad that you plan to finish this. Good luck! ^w^

Hello, Miss KatKat-Tan~
I hope your still looking for help, because i would love to be a part of it. My name is Lance Williams. I am a sophmore in highschool.

I would love to help with backgrounds, music, and even voice acting if you are still looking for help. here is my email: (hehe...)

Hey miss Katkat! ^^ Ever since I saw your partial game I have become interested in what the story would be like and how it would progress. I know it's quite late, but do you still have a spot for a proofreader? I'd really love to help you during my free time (to be a lesser lazyass, hehe :p) Anyway, I wish you luck for your game. Keep up the good work! \(^▽^)/

hey katkat-tan :D I dont know if your still looking for people to help out ^_^ my name is Jackie and im a freshman in highschool. I have been into acting for a long time now ^_^ and I've been in a couple plays so i have experience with the whole, Have emphasis and project, make it sound asthough this is a real situation and to become one with the character. If you are looking for voice actors/actresses .. i would be glad to help with female roles ^_^

Hello Katkat!! I'd be really happy if I could help you out! I'm a (freshman?)student at a music acadamy for composing and music-making and such. I'd like to 'use' this project to get some experience in composing (a bit of a win-win situation, right? ...). I have the most experience with string instruments (violin, viola, cello and a (I think it's called a double-bass in English...). I'm currently following guitar courses for finger-style.
I also work with digital composing programs, so if you only need a file, that should be no problem.
Erm, I also do voice acting in international (?) accents, but I'm just a beginner in that area... I'm also currently studying the following languages: French, German, Latin, ancient Greek and Cambridge English (if that's important to know...) (I'm from The Netherlands, so my English accent has kind of a Dutch taste ^_^") I enjoy voice acting the most in a Russian accent, though!! I'm sixteen years old, first year in high school.
If there's anything more you want to know, message me! :>
Thank you for reading this comment and I'm eager to help you out!!

I really liked the unfinished version and can't wait for the finished one!
Shame I can't really help, only maybe with 3,4 and 7, but that probably won't be possible.
Good luck!
AnubisGrey Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2014
Hello! I don't know if you're still looking for people to help you out with this wonderful game, but I did read a journal entry in which you said you lost all of your progress due to, well, technical difficulties. If you're still working on recovering that progress and continuing forward, I would love to use what experience I have with scripting to help you. Please message me if you're interested. This is definitely something I would be honored to be a part of. uvu
DerpyPoodle Featured By Owner May 24, 2014
I'd be more than happy to test the game, but the only thing I can give you is some constructive criticism. And, I can voice act, for male. (I have multiple accents, so if you want a sample just let me know.)
WolfnDragon Featured By Owner May 19, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
Though, I can't do much for helping you make the game, I will say that the unfinished was wonderful and that you should keep on going! ^^
jazztoff109 Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
hi! if you are still askin people, i wouldn't mind being a voice actor. ALSO maybe help with music, since i play piano, flute, and violin. (drums to if that counts...)
ongkomelissa Featured By Owner Jan 20, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I would be happy to voice act for a female role. I have a really goo quality mike, so you won't have to worry about background noise. Sadly, I do not work with flash, only Ren'py, so I can't help you in that aspect.
shotachii Featured By Owner Dec 23, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I'd be happy to be a script editor/proofreader and would love to volunteer as a voice actor! :D 
baileyboozzx Featured By Owner Dec 8, 2013
I'll be willing to voice act, as I am, sadly, not talented with anything else you listed. I am pretty young though, only turning 14 next month.
Kinadom-Raine Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Oooh, I'd like to try voice acting if that's alright. I'm still like.. 13 years old? That's fine... Right? ^^;
lazy-drifter Featured By Owner Nov 17, 2013
If the position is still valid, I can help with Proofreading.
Why? It's because my first language is English, I speak English daily and I have an experience playing dating sims/otome games for the past 4 years or so.

I could be a script editor AND beta tester..but, uh....I use renpy. xD not flash. xD So, I'm sorry. I'd help if I could..

Poptartlolol Featured By Owner Jul 12, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Is it too late for this? lol I don't know how these kinds of things work, but if there is any way for me to do some voice acting for you, I would love to!! If you need any qualifications, I currently attend a performing arts high school. While acting is not my major, I do learn a lot on the performing aspect. And voice acting has actually been my most recent passion and interest. Please feel free to use me if you need!! And, of course, its really only voices you think fit your characters, right? So if you need an "audition tape" of sorts, I could provide that too. [Skype?] =7=;;
LoLogirl-23 Featured By Owner Jul 9, 2013
I know some great music qnd would love to help if u allowed it
miniazian Featured By Owner Jun 30, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
I would love to help with anything I can, but I know nothing about coding. However, I can still do script editing and proofreading. If you need a sample of my voice acting, go on YouTube and look up Kellie's Diary. The voice actor for that, is me. My voice normally sounds deeper than what was shown in KD. I can do just about any proofreading that you need, but I don't think the script editing would be such a good idea for me, I'm not very literally creative or talented. Keep up the good work, I don't have an account on here so just e-mail me. My e-mail is I do suggest though, having more than just one person helping on each job, maybe two, three, or even four people if it's really needed. Anyways, if you want my help, contact me by e-mail. I'll be waiting, if you don't need my help, please send a rejection e-mail to me so I'm not waiting for nothing. P.S. I have very little experience in voice acting, so please send a description of what kind of voice(s) you want and for which characters.

I can be a game tester but I know nothing about coding. I can also do some voice acting. If you are interested, I can send some voice clips as audition material or whatever. ^_^

1) Should I keep the main menu design and functions?
yes, you totally, should. the main menu looks amazing.
2) Should I keep the faint fading of the text between each dialog?
i think that's fine, sometimes to show that a new text has appeared (coz sometimes I would accidently click the screen and the whole thing changes when i'm reading it but i didn't that it changed so i get really confused :P )
3) Should I make bad endings for the game as well?
depends on if you have free time or not :3 (if u do decide to make a bad end, however, you should have a save option or something, coz im pretty sure most people wouldn't want to replay the whole thing again :P )
4) Should the protagonist also appear on the screen during his/her dialog, or will a profile box be more than enough?
i prefer full body, but a profile box is fine, too :P

oh yeah, you should also be able to chose what dialog the protagonist says to! like a list of choices or whatever.

i think you should keep the protagonist on screen in their dialog.

Glad you're picking it up again can't wait! I really wished I could help since I have nothing but free time right now. But I don't t know how to do coding and never worked with flash. I hope you get the help you need because I really like it and the artwork is awesome! I can't see more of the characters especially Alexander. Good luck!
