Greetings! Already had plan for voices, just unsure if we will be able to do a full one due to the length of the game. I will update more details when we have more to show!
A test sprite of Recor. I might/might not use this in the actual game since this is just an experiment on size and coloring style.
I hope I improve more by the time I finish writing. If not, this will be what waxwing character sprite looks like.
November update :
Here is a drawing of Rek as an apology for the lack of updates. It is not a cg scene, and it has nothing to do with in game art.
I am done writing Rek and Recor’s chapter 11. Total word count is around 223k. There’s nothing much to update except that I am still working on waxwing.
We already have original music, art and background and everything is almost complete except…voices.
It will be unaffordable to have a fully voiced cast, so I thought of having reaction voice and CG scenes voice. Although I won’t be getting voice actors until later on but please let me know if you are interested in it. (wanting to be a cast, suggestion, opinion of character having voice included)
Lastly, feel free to find me on twitter https://twitter.com/iberubunz if you have any questions/discussion regarding waxwing for tumblr is inconvenient with its reply system. (Be warned that it might contain storyline/character spoilers)
Some teaser bgm from our composer Lucas King!
For the past few weeks I’ve been trying to fix(remake) the GUI due to the change of resolution. The basics are done, leaving some extra screens which I plan to do once I finish all the writing and art.
Chapter10 for Rek, Recor and Taga is done. I am now writing the remaining 30% of Recor’s path on chapter11. I’m almost done with these 3 character’s paths, there is probably another 20-30% left to write! As for Shin and Sheol, I am still half way with them…Word count is probably190k. I’m sorry I’m starting to get lazy on counting the words…
While writing, I didn’t neglect background and music! Just to announce, our background artist is the awesome Uncle Mugen! Also, arowana had joined the team as an editor and proofreader!
Things are going smoothly. I’ll see everyone on the next update!
Thanks for supporting Waxwing. I’m sure I will get a host which allows payments besides credit card. As for if they have cellphone payment, I will have to do some research. Thanks for the suggestion and I will keep it in mind for payment variety.
I know the announcement of Waxwing getting commercialized is a big shock to many people. Thank you very much for not minding it and continuing to cheer us on! We will try our best to produce our best quality, even better than before Waxwing was commercialized.
There you go dear! ❤
Things have been messy lately, but I am slowly picking up my pace in neatening this project. I have been thinking for a few weeks already and I’ve finally found courage to announce this. (which everyone should eventually know…)
As some people have known, Waxwing is under Oasis Plus group and everything will be credit under Oasis plus rather than Waxwing. I’ve decided to do this for the sake of future projects and long term updates as Waxwing will eventually end one day while I might make new games in the future.
Waxwing is going to be a commercial game. If nothing goes wrong, the price will be 20usd. Donations for this game will be closed. I deeply apologize for fooling everyone saying it was free, but I didn’t mean to do so.
I don’t intend to earn money from this game as I’ve said before. The money will be used to pay back commissioned backgrounds and raise funds for future projects. So, if you like Waxwing and would like to see more project from us with Syn being the lead artist, please support us and not pirate or we will not have funds for our next project…
In exchange for paying 20usd, you will get around 100+ (excluding variation) original backgrounds like the samples above. You will also be able to enjoy a wide screen 1352x768 game resolution. To allow players to enjoy the graphics even more, you are able to hide or leave the menu on screen while playing (thanks to Arowana for helping me with the animation.)
As for writing, Rek & Recor’s chapter 10 is done. I am currently writing Taga’s chapter 10. I am going to go on writing for the 3 of them while leaving Sheol and Shin behind for now. I might also include the 6th obtainable if I finish all 5 characters smoothly and it doesn’t become too stressful by the end of this project.
Waxwing is now under Oasis plus.
Some people might sense bad news coming but I will announce a really important update soon.
July update :
I just finished Chapter 9 of Taga, Rek and Recor’s path. The main storyline for the 3 of them are similar. I will continue Shin and Sheol once I’ve finished the other 3. Word count is around 170k. I think there will be an extension of the chapters up to 12-15, depending on the character.
Anyways, the drawings above are what I did for waxwing ask fm.. I draw the characters when I am free, so don’t be disappointed if you didn’t receive an art. Have fun people, and I’ll continue writing hard!
Shelbyzinc’s previous question :
Could you include that 6th character you want to do later on in a update after completing the vn?
Hello again! Thank you for your suggestion. I will think about him as a possibility once I finish writing the main 5 guys. If I have an idea on how to write him I’ll definitely make him an obtainable in the future!
