    It is indeed :) it's kinda veered away from that now, the combat and the like resembles something closer to BioShock - I would however like to maintain an aspect of manageable difficulty through the whole idea of survival though.

    Just to let you all know there should certainly be a demo in the next two weeks :)

    @Zachy - cheers dude.

    Okay, so demo progress is in full throttle right now. The demo will cover the entirety of the first level, which is the prison & campsite (unless I decide to add more in), and the prison is halfway done. The campsite's been finished forever, so at least there's that. So that's around 16-ish maps left to do, which isn't a whole lot, so hopefully I can shoot for a demo release in the next two weeks.

    lol wow yeah that never happened

    Yeeeeah so this is ticking along slowly, slowly, slowly. A lot more focused on Blood Shard than I am this right now, but this'll be a shorter game anyway, so when Pt. 1 of Blood Shard is done I'll try and finish this up.

    In the meantime though, gameplay!

    Nice gameplay! I'm loving the vibe, feels kinda Bioshock-esque Too bad you have to divide your attention to 2 projects. I also wanted to make a side project, based on a Belgian classic book. I only learned it's not really doable. Good luck though!

    Bioshock's definitely what I'm going for with this, to be honest. (also there are many sound effects swiped from there, haha)

    Have a map~

    [​IMG]

    This pretty much documents everywhere you'll be able to explore in-game. Only the most primary locations are labelled here, but as the game progresses you'll get to explore each of those streets.

    Another quick, albeit awesome update - I am very happy to say that super trooper Ronove is now heading up the character artwork for Oneirophrenia, which is totally amazing. She's already finished up the main character, Dorian (gonna need to update this thread pretty soon), and here is how he looks~!

    [​IMG]

    yup, given that that is how I exactly envisioned him means that I am beyond psyched for this now.

    So, because Blood Shard's kinda at a nice place right now, I'm gonna try and divert a little more attention to this too so I can have a demo done in the next month or two. In the meantime, just BASK IN DORY'S GLORY~ (I really shouldn't use cutesy terms for his name because my god he has a heavy story)

    Really great portrait, and I just watched the video you posted a few days ago. The music is excellent. Very much a Silent Hill/Amnesia undertone.

    Keep at it! :)

    Thanks guys.

    I'm looking for an opinion - I would really like to have taller sprites for this game, perhaps veer away from the chibis. At the same time though, I wonder if the tiles and whatnot that I'm using would suit that - maybe not as tall as Mack sprites, but I had eyed up Archeia's base she posted a while ago and was considering those. Any thoughts? I'm just far enough along where, if I had to I probably could make some minor edits to the maps so they don't look like giants, but I'll need to make a decision sooner rather than later~

    I think Mack sprites look alright with VX tiles, few things are obviously out of place and should be easy enough to change :3 Go for it, the taller sprites suit horror more anywayz!

    Annnd introducing the next new character, Henry~ 

    [​IMG]

    He is a BAMF. Major props to Ronove again. 

    I'm gonna update this thread pretty soon 'cause I think the characters here still have their bios/faces/whatever reflecting when this was still a fantasy-based game, aha. So updates comin' soon.

    You know quigon/Gorlami ^^, you are the only mapper I know that can pull off such wonderful parallax mapping techniques. Your maps are always a pleasure to look at. :) Love the portraits as well. Remind self to do Ronove's left over maps. XD

    Thank you! I'm hoping to get a demo for this out in the next month or so assuming I don't get flashmobbed by commissions or anything, so hopefully you can give it a go when it's done~ 

    (and yeah Ronove's portraits are just awesome for this game aaaggh)
