Hello! This issue has been discussed and suggested a few times. I might be able to release waxwing for free though fundraising, but I’m afraid it will affect my future commercial project. People expect commercial games to be higher quality than a freeware, and might not be happy if the commercial game I make is the same quality as my freeware. I’m not sure what commercial game I’m to make if waxwing which I’m currently making should be a freeware. (with all the quality art, bg, music, voice and so on)
Hello! It was meant to be free but as times passed I thought of brushing up the quality, meaning having original art, music and voice.
It cost quite a bit to pay for the work force which is the reason why I cannot make it free anymore.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Art by CherryRaven Secret Valentine exchange! Check out her gallery for more of her art.
Please take note that the art above has nothing to do with the actual game itself.
I deeply apologize for the lack of updates. I want to notify everyone that I’m still working on Waxwing, but some personal issues are holding me back a little. I’m actually moving to another country, but I won’t put the details here.
Anyways, I’m almost done with Chapter12 of Rek! Hopefully I’ll be able to work on Waxwing more once I settle with my life! Once the writing is done I’ll be sure to throw a ton of art updates!
Yes, there will be voice acting in Waxwing. However, due to the length, I won’t be able to afford a full voice acting. There will be voice effect on normal scene and full voice during CG scenes!
Hello! I know it’s a disappointment for most people who’re seeking for more romantic storyline. However I don’t want to make something which all the bachelors will fall inlove with the MC. In my opinion, I think every character has different interest in romance and some are not interested in dating at all. I don’t want to force and mismatch characters for the sake of romance.
Happy new year! I don’t have a rough estimation on the release date but I hope I can finish everything by the end of this year.
I will choose a beta-tester based on reblogs and comments on who is interested in testing it, then I will choose a few from there.
Thank you so much for your support!
End of year summary :
Music completed - 9
BG completed(variation excluded) - 23
Chapters completed - 13
Sprites completed - 0
Cg completed - 0
Character design completed - 8
I will continue working on waxwing and hope it can be release in 2014
Happy new year everyone!
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.
