KICKSTARTER Coming October 10th! - https://goo.gl/CUhbPB

This has been my life for the past year (and on and off for another two years before that). I finally released the Prologue to my game A NEAR DAWN. So much work went into this project, collaborating with artists, musicians, voice actors, and I am so proud of how it has come together. Please take a look! (The whole trailer was made in Flash, by the way, minus one tiny in-game clip :) )

A NEAR DAWN is a dark, humorous psychological thriller adventure game from Far-off Daydream Games, written and directed by Leonid Pilchin. We hope to start a KickStarter campaign to help with the rest of the project on October 10th, 2017!

It has a good concept to it, and based around the run loop of the main character, animating the characters is going to be fairly limited. Character design is also pretty damn sweet. Ever watched Archer? It reminded me of that style. But, I suggest adding a bit of work on the voice-acting. The voices aren't exactly the best, unless you are not willing to use voice-acting. But, other than that, I can tell this will be a good visual novel. And I've played good visual novels before.

Thanks Lathryn!
Yeah, people have told me it feels Archer-like. I couldn't really tell you it's like this or like that, my main influences were anime for a long time, but I went through a traditional fine arts program, and this is what my art style is now. :P

Check out the game (on Itch.io), let me know what you think of the voices. We are working with up and coming voice actors, it's not like I have a studio people can come into and record. So, this is about as good as we can get the voices to be at this point.

And yeah, it's all true about the run cycle. That's why he just runs. I could probably get him to blink too, but making him speak is pushing it. :P

Awesome to see your dedication to your project. Keep it up

Thanks so much NorthStream! :)
