近况说明

简单说说这一年来发生的事吧。
在上一次更新(18年2月左右)时,我对游戏中现存内容(主线前两章)进行了阶段性整合,在支线剧情方面挖掘了前两章的主线进程上能够透露的全部内容,因此我判断时机成熟,开始准备进行主线第三章的制作。
主线的制作和17年中陆陆续续的角色剧情、支线剧情更新有一个非常关键的差异点,即在开始制作的时间点时,我手中并没有齐备的美术资源(主要是主线中新登场的角色的人设),这导致即使原本打算开启测试分支的剧本(第三章的露依视角)在三月底的时候已经大部分完成,我也无法将其录入游戏进行调试,更不可能发布更新。
虽然新人设陆续有从委托的美术处输出,但不得不说输出速率并不能满足我的开发需求,实际上我拿到第三章主线需要的最后一批人设资源时,已经是十月的第一天了。
而在这漫长的几个月中,发生了非常多的事情。
在工作上,我就职于一家移动游戏制作公司,由于众所周知的原因,我司在18年中遭受了巨额亏损,为了保住饭碗,我不得不将更多的精力投入到本职工作中,这导致我与这个游戏的合作创作者们(主要是剧本方面)的沟通出现了非常多的问题,同时迟迟无法推进的主线进度也让我没有更多的任务可以交付给他们去完成。由于沟通和向心力的减少,短短两三个月里,原本就联系松散的合作者们对这个游戏失去了之前的关注和热情,开发的效率落入到史低,在下半年之后,基本就只有我自己在继续进行游戏内容的开发了。

值得感谢的是,在这段沉默的时间里,有许多玩家依然没有放弃对这个游戏的关注,在了解到开发的困境后,也有不少玩家主动提出加入游戏的内容创作和舆论维稳,然而遗憾的是,他们的热情虽然一定程度上缓解了舆论压力(这其实很重要,让我至今也没有放弃游戏的开发),但始终无法有效填补游戏内容的缺口,美术资源的短缺也一直无法找到有效的补充方式(高昂的美术市场价格和不可描述的平均职业道德实在令人难以承受,很低的游戏热度也让我很难找到用爱发电的共同创作者),时间仍然在沉默中渐渐流逝,不知不觉就离上次更新就快到一年了。

其实开发进度一直有在官方群里告知,但今天看到一些舆论,意识到我不知道的地方也有许多人在继续关注这个游戏,突然就想公开和大家说说它的近况,
最近在重制探索、角色交互、角色成长等基础系统,试着在内容量无法短时间内大幅度扩展的情况下,尽量丰富玩家在游戏中能做的事。
为此十一月底开始就在重置前两章的主线地图,目前还差一半。
问题在于系统更改有一部分模块需要制作新的ui(主要是大量定制图标,以及少量的界面设计),找了三个美术,都失踪了,我也很蛋疼。

讲真,能更我也想尽快更,看大家老在各种地方闹腾其实我心里非常烦,但是没稳定的开发资源根本推不了进度,寻找合作者的过程又非常不顺利,几乎让人想放弃继续制作游戏,但至少到现在为止还没打算放弃。
所以希望对这游戏有兴趣的朋友们,能帮我介绍一些 靠谱 的资源(主要是美术和剧本方面),钱不是特别大的问题,但我特别害怕花了钱和精力去沟通之后又得不到期望的结果。
如果各位手上实在没有可靠资源,建议至少保持冷静围观,跟我一样佛一点,缘分到了新版本就来了。

From “Pastelia Stories” developer

After 2 years working on this project alone, game is finally online. Hard to tell that Maru Project Team is actually just 1 person. Who knows, maybe more people will join to Maru or it will remain 1 person. Recently one artist is cooperated with me, now we can be more productive.
Thanks to all of those who intend to buy EA version of “Pastelia Stories”! Thanks to all of those who don’t mind to play a game without CG, with no Visual Effects and without completed animation! We will improve everything and add even more on top of this!
First things first, game is available to download now, this is good. Next step is improving art aspects of the game. During this stage, we will open test version to test our new art. At least we need to finish new OP, cut scenes and other transactions, by doing this we will improve gaming experience. Then we will work on characters’ facial expressions, characters design details, combat visual effects. Of course everything will be change according players’ feedback.
And many more other aspects of the game…
So much stuff to do… Eh… Just give me some time haha

English version and Japanese version are in progress. Because of lacking money(over 400,000 Chinese words need to be translated and may became 1 million in the future.), we have only Chinese now. Sorry for the inconvenience.
