Yumé 2: Rika's Story [Adventure/RPG, Series]
« on: August 23, 2010, 11:22:28 pm »
Yumé 2: Rika's Story is the sequel to Yumé.

This game centers around Rika, Nanami's friend, and her adventures in the Dream World. The overall tone of the game will be a lot darker and it will answer questions raised in the first game as well as pose new ones.

Rika's Story will also sport several graphical changes, a few of which are:
 - The game will employ text boxes for dialogue like a typical RPG (whereas the first game's sole text came in the form of Nanami's diary entries). This is due to Rika being more upfront and talkative while Nanami is more shy and keeps to herself. There are also plot-centric reasons for this.
 - The game is designed to support 55 or more different 8x8 pixel tiles (the first game used only 22)
 - Currently the game reuses 2 tiles and 1 sprite from the first game.
 - Currently the game has 22 new tiles and 4 new sprites.

I expect to finish this game by November.

Current title screen. Only pic because I'm still working on sprites.


One of several trailers. This is the pre-production hype trailer :P


This is somewhat cross-posted from Cemetech.

I like the idea so far, I can't wait to see it in action :)
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Glad you do! It'll be a while before I can show off animated screenshots. I want to get a graphical map of the Dream World finished before I code any of it.

Sounds cool!  Good luck on it! ;D
Thank you!


Also, on to game progress: Yumé 2 now employs 4 old tiles (water tiles), 1 old sprite, 29 new tiles, and 4 new sprites

Also, here's a link to the WIP Graphical Map of Yumé 2

Nice, I like the map layout so far, and especially those wall sprites.

They're my favorite part too :D

Also, another map update:

As you can see, the Dream World in Yumé 2 is going to be a LOT bigger than the Dream World in Yumé. Including the empty rooms, that's only about 50-66% of the map.

In addition to 4 water tiles, I've borrowed the grave/tombstone tile as well. Current count is: 5 old tiles, 1 old sprite, 34 new tiles, and 4 new sprites

Darn, it looks great :) Did you do the entire sprite work, btw? Because it really looks great.

Why, thank you very much! :D
Yes, I did all of the sprites myself. I think I'm starting to develop a knack for it ^^

Glory be, that's a sweet looking game

Thank you! I think I'll scrap together some concept images of game play so I can show off some neat changes :P

Again, I'm not doing any actual coding until the graphical map is entirely finished. That way, if I find mistakes or want to change layouts, I won't have to trudge through massive amounts of code to update it for real.

Threw together some concept screenshots showing how the game is going to look as it is currently envisioned.
