Hello, my name is Mylafter, the creator of, "My Lazy Afternoon". I found your project from the stats from my wordpress page. I just wanna let you know that I'm really looking forward to seeing more updates of your game. Even though I haven't sen an actual screenshot yet, I'm still excited after seeing all your character artwork. Good luck with your game!
Oh, wow, didn’t know people were talking about this somewhere else, hahaha. Anyways, hi! First of all, let me start by saying I love your project and I may or may not have spent a couple hours playing the demo.
(Also, Becky is amazing. Just throwing that out there.)
Thank you so much for taking the time for writing this! There should be more updates in the upcoming weeks (I hope, December is a busy time over here.)
I may have deleted all previously posted screenshots, they were pretty outdated. But here’s an approximate of a paralax I was working on:
(This is outdated since the farm layout actually changed…but the graphics will be pretty much like this.)
And this is a screenshot showing the HUD (ignore the background graphics, I’m using generic RMVX graphics for testing):
The final HUD should look like that, unless I change my mind.
I should be posting some character profiles this week, so check back for that!!
…… Oh, I should have some MLA fanart in one of my sketchbooks. *goes looking for it*
I made these cuties while working on some icons today:
Their profiles should be up this week! :)
I'm already looking forward to the demo. :D Though I hope it doesn't distract me tooooo much from my school work. XDD (Got a giant project to do around that time. >.<) I also looked up "My lazy afternoon" It's really cute. I 'only' knew about "Stardew Valley", "Tailor Tales", recently "World's Dawn" and two finished, but older german fanmades. I always hope to find more. :D
Good luck with all that!
I’m actually working on portraits and dialogue right now, and I think I’m getting a better computer for Christmas so I don’t think the demo is something that would be done anytime soon, actually. I’m doing my best.
Thank you for reminding me of those awesome projects!! Guys, here, let me link you to some awesome HM fangame projects I know of:
There are other completed projects such as Mondlicht Kinder, but they are in German and as far as I know there’s no English patch, so that’s a shame.
Let me know if you guys know of any other HM related projects!!!
Hey, I stumbled upon this game only yesterday, but I loved it immediately. All those different characters and everyone with their own stories. And the art. *.* I just love the style of the characters. The very detailed first map you posted looks awesome too (and I'm curious how many times you had to redo that drawing. XD). There aren't enough fanmade HM games out there, so thank you. I would love to help in some way, even if I don't have any real eperience. ^^'
Oh hey! Thank you so very much for this lovely message!!
It actually did took me a long time to make up a town map, and I’m afraid I recently changed it again. So I have to update that.
There actually are quite a few games out there, if you look deep enough!! (I personally love this one called “My Lazy Afternoon”, you guys should look it up)
Now that I finish my classes I can go back to working on this and hopefully there’ll be a demo by the end of this year.
THE SHIP HAS SAILED. And I’m on it.
I don’t even know if there are rival couples in this game, but hey! They do look cute together, don’t they?
I ship them mainly because I like the idea of a girl giving flowers to a boy. Besides, I think the coldxwarm vibe they give is cute.
AAAAAAAAAAAAH THIS IS ADORABLE. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
Yes, there’ll be rival couple in the game!
They look so cute, I really appreciate this! AAAAAAHH!!!
It’s been a while since I last updated this blog, but fear not, I have been working hard on Moonlight Tales. I wanted to give you guys a little update about all that’s going on and what might be major changes to the mechanics of the games.
1. Character design contest winners!
We didn’t get enough entries to make a poll on each character, so I chose the ones I think would fit more into the game.
I chose 3 designs for the game: A design for Dr. Mike and one for Richard (both by Troy) and one for the Moon Goddess (by Kuroneko). The other designs will be made by me and I’ll try to upload the final designs for those characters some time this weekend.
So congrats to both of you, leave me an ask about the prizes :)
2. Major changes
Recently I started changing the tools I use for making the game, I’m currently swapping from RMVX (which is very limited in terms of graphics and programming) to C# coding. I’m teaching myself how to do it and it’s going well so far, I’ll keep you guys updated. I’m also taking classes at uni that’ll help with develop MT in a more professional way.
Still, take into account that I’m working on this by myself and I don’t have a team to help me so it’s still gonna take a while.
3. Gin no Saji
This past week I watched an anime called Gin no Saji (Silver Spoon), which is about an agricultural high school (pretty much what my concept of the Harvest Moon Academy I use for the game was), and it’s a very fun anime (100% recommended, has amazing characters and animation) and it gave me some ideas for some new mechanics that I can implement on Moonlight Tales such as:
4. Possible new features
So I’m gonna tell you guys how I think these features might fit into the game and I’ll need you guys to give me feedback on them so I can make the changes that’d need to be made.
So let me know what you guys think of these features, the feedback is really appreciated since these are very game-changing mechanics. Specially on the raising livestock for meat one. Pretty please.
So, I hope you guys have a wonderful week :)
[obligatory question mark for feedback] ?
This is amazing~ can't wait!
Thank you so much for your support! :)
Moonlight Tales: Bachelors (Pt. 1)
There are several characters that need to be redesigned and I thought “hey, why don’t we let people submit their designs?”, so that’s what we’re going to do: I’m going to let you guys submit your own character designs and it might get included in the game!!!
So here are the rules:
So this is what you get if you win:
So far we’ve got 4 entries, so good luck and have fun!!!!
((I would appreciate if you guys spread this so we get more people interested, pretty please with a cherry on top?))
