    The co-producer of Unraveled and Founder of RosePortal Games (fancy title), Aaron van der Brugge, plays the demo of Unraveled! Watch it for some interesting commentary, or if you didn’t want to play the demo, or simply for fun! Because it was certainly quite enjoyable to record. :)

    Absolutely beautiful! This will be yet another one I'll be putting on my radar and trying out when it's complete.

    Looks like quite something! I bet those spark effects are dazzling in motion, aren't they?

    Thank you! ^_^ And yeah, most of the game is something you need to see in action as opposed to a screenshot.

    Is that good or bad? Haha.

    So we're redesigning the visuals of the battle system a bit today to make it more understandable...

    And we gave Cinnamon a helmet for the underwater level. ^_^

    This is gorgeous! I'm excited to play it! Cinnamon looks cute and I'm eager to learn more about her through gameplay.

    Thanks! ^_^

    Today we decided to change the logo because it didn't look enough like an anchor. From this:

    To this:

    So today I've been focusing on the battle system...

    [​IMG]

    Finalizing the skills of the 2 main characters. Next I'll start on the enemies. We've also changed the font from Tahoma to Palatino Linotype. Because we're using RPG Maker we can only use a universal Windows font, otherwise the font will be replaced by Arial when played on a computer without the proper font installed... That basically leaves the choices to crap like Comic Sans, Verdana and Georgia. x3

    If it was made with RPG Maker VX Ace you could have just included the fonts folder with the game install.

    Definitely gorgeous, and I'm excited about the three-star battle system. Seeing all the custom content and that crab also makes me happy :)

    The only thing I would comment is that it's a bit hard to read the words on the logo, but that's just me.

    Kudos to you! Can't wait to try this out.

    Nope, it was made in XP. ^_~ Easier to do HQ mapping there.

    @Alkorri: Would you say that is because of the "font" (well, the letters are hand-drawn) or because of their colour? And thank you~. ^^

    Well, I'm no design expert, but I squinted at both logos for a while until I determined that:

    1) The V of the first anchor made it easier for me to recognise the letters and hence the rest of the word, Unraveled

    2) The anchor in the second logo does not look so much like a V, so I had to look at the other letters to make sense of it. I had the most trouble with the U and the A

    3) I like the blue highlight, but perhaps it could be a bit more prominent so that the word stands out from the background?

    Dunno if that helps :)

    Thank you! I want to tell something about Cinnamon's back story through the items, considering the game has no dialogue. :)

    Oh and today I swapped the shark for a new monster:

    [​IMG]

    Called the "Anchorfish"; like the anchor in the logo. :)
