Café Memoria… what in the world did I get myself into this time?…

June 23, 2014

Once upon a time, the Handsome (yet Gloriously Fat) Uncle Mugen is skimming through lemmasoft to see what’s going on. By chance I saw this thread in the Work in Progress of Café Memoria. According to the thread…

Café Memoria is a new restaurant in town, run and operated by a woman named Elena Pervova. You, as the male protagonist (Ryne), are curious about this restaurant and decide to eat lunch there. As you enter, you are greeted by a female friend of yours, and the daughter of the owner of the restaurant, Anna, who happens to be quite shy. Since she works here, perhaps this is an opportunity for her to improve. How well do you think she will do?

Normally, I’d read a thread and then move on to the next until I saw this image…

Looks nice but…

Oh… I recognize those! His scene contains a few models I hosted on the Sketchup 3D Warehouse. So this is Café Memoria… looks good enough. In the typical Uncle Mugen fashion, I casually showed it to my peers and asked them what they think of this building… let’s just say we ended up in a nearly (almost) 2 hour debate ranging from why this building isn’t energy efficient to it’s somewhat brutalistic aesthetic. At the end of the debate we have two options… if this building existed in real life, we will… Read the rest of this entry ?

Insert Title Here – A scalable and recyclable OELVN (aka VN)

June 21, 2013

OHIO GO SAY MUST everyone… it is me UNCLE MUGEN… it’s been a while…

Allow me to introduce to you what Uncle Mugen has been cooking lately… Today, I present you the OELVN “INSERT TITLE HERE”… yes… I’m not kidding… that is the name of the OELVN (aka EVN or English Visual Novel)

Yes, that is the name of the game… not even joking…

It can trace its beginnings to the original Project Gakuen whose goal is to produce a recyclable and scalable generic school themed OELVN where you can insert any story you wanted but on a more grander scale (click here to learn more) … Fast forward a few months later… after doing a really thorough feasibility study… I found out that it was next to impossible to finish it in any reasonable amount of time with only me doing everything so I have scaled down the project from a large multi acre International School into a generic 300,000 sqm High School OELVN titled  “INSERT TITLE HERE”.

I’m still alive you know… barely…

So here is Ren’py Date Simulator, The Game (not again)… a tiny VN based around the demo VN included in Ren’py released back in 2011… Unfortunately, the rush to finish it before the end of the year left me with some lingering regrets and questions like what could I have done to make it better but still within my cheap, fast and efficient way of doing things… the amount of regret is so much I haven’t uploaded the game on the Ren’py archives yet.

Let’s start the new year… with a BG rant… Lol!…

Too much effort for a simple room scene that doesn’t even look as good as I hoped it would be

Sometimes I wonder if there really is a magic shortcut for doing all those pesky internal BG scenes without putting much effort… and that is the holy grail I seek… create cartoony/anime like BG’s with the least amount of effort that will look good with hand drawn images… Read the rest of this entry ?
