Darling Duality - Winter Wish video game by Melancholy Marionette

Made by Melancholy Marionette

If you're here because you saw ManlyBadassHero's recent video, and you're thinking of buying the game, please check out this post I made first :3>>Aaaand if you're thinking of buying the gamemaking a donation towards development (especially if you're planning on adding a tip), please check out this post as well.>>Darling Duality - Winter Wish is a game I made for a combination of the Secret Santa Jam the Winter VN Jam :3 It is a standalone episode, but more like an introduction to one of many characters in a much larger project that is currently in development.>>On one fateful night in the middle of winter, a lonely soul's wish is granted. In a world where everything is either black or white, which path will you take when you encounter the living, breathing version of a love interest from the most recent visual novel that you've been playing?>>>>>>>>(Check out the screenshots for an enlarged version of the profile images.)>>2 versions of the same character - Choose between Castor (M) and Castoria (F)>>Gender-neutral - The player is referred to as: 'you'>>RoleplayASMR-like scenario with full English voice acting>>2 different endings depending on your choices - One sweet one sinister>>Lots of expression changes that match the voice acting>>Use the scroll wheel on your mouse to fast forward or rewind through the game>>Please note that the game was designed so that the expression changes match the pacing of the voice acting, so if you choose to turn the voice acting off, the expression changes will appear to match up strangely with the text. Also, if you change the text speed, it will likely mess with the timing of the expression changes. It's supposed to be more like a roleplay scenario that you listen to rather than doing a lot of reading.>>Flashing lights - Both versions>>Self-harm (in order to try and wake up from a dream) - Both versions>>Yandere-esque shenanigans - Both versions (though much tamer in the safe version)>>Suggestive situation - Full version only>>Depictions of blood - Full version only>>Physical violence - Full version only>>This game was designed to be a present for the ChristmasNew Year season and was free to download for a limited time. It is now available to purchase for 2 (all goes towards the further development of the game to pay voice actors etc.) However, there are community copies available for those who cannot afford to purchase a copy :3 If the community copies happen to run out, and you genuinely can't afford to support the game with money, please contact me and I'll get a download key sent to you no questions asked. I'm perma poor, so I know what it's like to not have the funds available to buy the games you wanna play melancholicmarionettegmail.com>>Written Created by Melancholy Marionette>>Castor VA: Kevin Rineer>>www.kevinrineer.com>>kevinrineervo>>Castoria VA: Aria Marisa>>Voice Director: Anthony Rodriguez>>www.anthonyrodriguezvo.com>>twitter.comCryshulvo>>Intro poem based on 'A Visit from St. Nicholas' byClement Clarke Moore>>For full credits, please see the document inside the game folder.>>Darling Duality is a game that I hope to develop further :3 I have many more character routes planned in drafts, along with additional scenarios with Castor Castoria!>>Current funding goal progress.>>The game will be free to download over the Christmas holiday period :3 After New Year's Day, it will be available for a small payment (with community copies available also). Anyone who purchases the game will also receive access to the audio-only version of the game for those who may wish to relive the story without playing the game. (It was designed to work as both a visual novel an audio drama.) Please note that I haven't had a chance to put together the audio-only version yet.>>Since I was contending with jam deadlines while making this, there are bound to be some small bugs. Some that I know of are the text popping out of the box on one or two instances of longer sentences because I haven't had time to fix the padding. This is my first game made using Unity as well, so there may be some random bugs I'm totally unaware of! On top of that, I'm unable to test the Mac Linux versions, as I only have access to Windows, so it's entirely possible that those versions don't work >. I will do my best to fix any bugs encountered anyhow :3>>Please use this thread here to comment on any bugs that you find :D>>Need help getting the game to open on Mac? Check out this post I made with a few possible fixes!>>(Safe Version VS Full Version)>>There are 2 versions of the game because when I decided to start making it, I didn't know if my secret Santa giftee was going to be okay with possible adult content the winter VN jam states that submissions containing sex gore will not be accepted, and I'm not sure if some of the stuff I have in this would count as gore or not. There's a suggestive scene, but it's not a sex scene, and there's blood, but it's not really gory.>>The full version contains all the content, whereas the safe version is an edited version of the game which does not contain the suggestive scene or the bloody scene. The safe version is basically mainly the fluff with nothing too disturbing in it. In the safe version, your choices do not matter, you will always reach the same ending, whereas, in the full version, your choices will determine the ending you get. In the safe version, you can also rewind from your choices to pick something else, whereas, in the full version, you can't. The only other difference between the two versions is the title screen music.>>Please note that unless anyone really wants it, the safe version is not likely to receive updates, as too much content would have to be cut. The final game is unlikely to feature anything extremely gory or incredibly NSFW anyway.>>Contact:>>If you enjoyed playing through the game (or even if you didn't xD), I'd really appreciate hearing your feedback in the comments ratings are much appreciated too ->>If you need help with anything, or just wanna drop me a message about the game, feel free to post a comment, or send me an email: melancholicmarionettegmail.com>>You're welcome tobuy me a coffee, or support other projectsI'm working on by becoming apatron:3

Plum Bun Reformatted


Plum Bun Reformatted video game Developed by Christopher Booth and published by Christopher Booth

Developed by Christopher Booth and published by Christopher Booth

>>The pages of this 'game' are purposefully handmade. Players are prompted to read again in peace with the constant challenge of reality mitigated by the format. Modern distracting stimuli remagnetize back towards the reader's inquiry, because of how these pages are designed and coded onto a stabilized, focus page that guarantees a returning bookmark, including a small click noise when turning a page. Achievements are self-reinforced by reading further, a new concept, thus the title Plum Bun Reformatted.>>The originally published 1928 novel was written by Jessie Redmon Fauset. Certain words are excluded and censored.
