My name is Neonzumi. I would like to introduce my dream project:
Cheddar Con Carne: Prelude to Whimsicality.

(Origins:)
It was around 2015 when I first drew Colby Cheddar:
As I was drawing Colby, I came up with Rubia Rabbit and Willikers Weasel as supporting characters. After a while of figuring out what to do with the characters, I've decided to create a uniquely weird game. So around October 2019, I've started development on what might be my most ambitious project.


(Plot:)
The plot follows Colby Cheddar who just baked herself a delicious cheesecake with a zesty taste known as Cheddar Con Carne that grabs the attention of the starve raving mad Willikers Weasel. As Colby chases Willikers to get her dessert back, she ends up in a dream-like world that is unlike anything she's ever seen before. Not only does Colby needs to get her cheesecake back, but she also has to figure out how to escape from the surreal wonderworld so that she can return to Normality.

Screenshots:
(How the Game Works:)
The game is basically an Interactive Fever Dream that is less on puzzle solving and more on exploration and humor. The game takes a lot of inspiration from Earthbound, Alice in Wonderland, Space Funeral, The Neverhood and so much more.

(Scrumptious Sounds:)
There will be an original soundtrack composed by myself. Using the power of LMMS and a whole lot of soundfonts and VSTs, I intend to have a unique soundtrack with variety and a quirky sense of humor.
Here are some tracks I've done so far:

(Hand-drawn Goodness:)
The graphics (Sprites/Backgrounds) in the game will be digitally hand-drawn from the ground up.

(Current Progress:)
Been currently working on Act 1. Still getting Act 4 written.

I've been a bit busy with working on the game. I've got the intro cutscene done and I still need to figure out how to continue the story.

Here's some new gameplay footage showing off Seriosa Rabbit and her house.

Sorry to keep you waiting after so long.
I've still been currently writing Act 3 of the game. Meanwhile I managed to come up with some concepts for the title screen. Which one do you think would work for the title screen?

The second image looks well framed for a title screen, and the blurred faces give it a homely early ps1 boxart feel to it.

And wow why isn't this project adopting more attention? The art, both drawn and composed, is so flavorful and expressive. Even if this project were just walking and talking it'd be worth a nab. Beware the Bunnygirl is such a good snes ear-kiss.

Thank you so much for the nice comment, @CarbonatedBlood. I've finally managed to put together a proper title screen:

Also, I'm still currently working on Act 1 as you can see from this cutscene image:

Monday morning, and the sudden message: Hey, can you set up a full second lesson about pixel art till tomorrow?
No one:
Steam game achievement: "Die 100 times in easy mode".
I want to learn Javascript to create a custom menu, but I don't really know where to start.
One uncomfortable truth that has withstood the test of time, is how most people will stand by while they see a crime happening, unless it's illegal to stand by. We probably wouldn't have stories about "special heroes" or games about heroes if the "everyday common folk" were largely capable of being heroes. Heroes face dangers that most people are not willing to.
I'm having toooo much fun designing the new MP (Mental Psyche) system. I've only worked it out for enemies so far, but it's fun to stun them, then go after their MP and delete them instead to farm for better item drops.
