Long-Overdue Update

Apologies for the radio silence over here! I’ve been really distracted since I started new full-time job late in the year while also keeping up with a couple of freelance contracts. I continue, however, to still be hard at work on my personal VN project. I’ve completed one new sprite since the last update and also started another one.

Ballerinas Sprite

I’m very excited to show off the first completed sprite for an as-yet-unannounced visual novel I’m working on. These gals are some minor characters who appear in the first scene. I plan to give them a simple idle animation using Live2D soon.

Bartender Game Prototype

So I spent this past March and early April putting together a prototype/art test of sorts for a bartender game set in Weimar-era Berlin.  I absolutely love games like VA-11 Hall-A and Coffee Talk, so I wanted to try my hand at coding up my own drink mixing system.

You can download the prototype and try it out on Itch.io here: https://meagantrott.itch.io/weimar-bartender-prototype

Since releasing the basic prototype, I’ve also been experimenting with adding sprite animation.  This YouTube video is the results of my messing around with Ren’Py’s video sprites feature.
