roseVeRte Games Development Blog

Okay, guys and girls, if you have bought any of roseVeRte apps on Android and got a glitch or crash or anything during playing, please send an email to support(at)roseverte.net
*change (at) to @

You might find option from Android to report the issue or something like that, but I can’t understand the issue reported by Android, since it gives me report in native java language which I don’t understand T-T and also, it doesn’t give me any information about you so I can’t reply to you directly.

Like some of you might already know, I build the game using Adobe Air and I’m clueless about the native language of Java (Android) or XCode (iOS). I can help you more if you tell me the game title, and how did you meet the issue. The issue you found might only occur on your device (as Android has too many kind of devices with each unique specs). Also, it might happen because of a corrupted save data, which means to fix it I need you to delete one or all of your save data inside your sdcard or internal memory.

As far I have 3 android devices, which one of them is not appropriate for my game because of the low specs. I’ll try to help you as far as I could do, but I need the actual information from you to fix it. I hope for your cooperation and thank you 🙂

And again here I am again. Wow it’s already October>< I’ m sorry for not updating this blog frequently.

Okay, so what am I doing. I’m preparing PC version for east tower – takashi and hopefully it will be released at the end of this week. Also for the long long East Tower- Kurenai, my Japanese proofreader has finished it ^^ so I can start making the script for the VAs.

I’m kinda afraid actually since i heard apple will reject apps with ermmm kissing voice which is kinda like “licking” something >< I feel this route will have things like that since I made it too… well you know :p

Like what I said before, there are 1 normal bad ending, 1 normal ending 2 harem ending(not really a good ending) and 4 true ending(depends on main character’s gender and personality, aggressive or passive)

… I hope I can finish this within this year. I hope and I try ><

now please excuse me to start to make the daihon for the vas ><

 

jaa ne (・ω・)ノシ

Hi there!

Sorry for not updating this blog for quite a long time ^^;

So okay, I want to tell you that a week ago(?) I’ve released the android version of dUpLicity~Beyond the Lies~.

GooglePlay:
Demo (Free):https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.roseverte.duplicitydemo.en
Full Version (10.00USD):https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=net.roseverte.duplicity.en

I use the ren’py porting function to port this one so… if you found any crash, I’m sorry that it might be caused by the engine which I can’t fix it myself ^^;

And then… for East Tower – Kurenai. Let’s see… what kind of information I can provide.

1. This game might be the longest within the East Tower series. I’ve been thinking to split this into two, but then it seems that I can’t do it at iOS (I will need to use In App purchase but then the engine I use hasn’t supported it yet)

2. There will be more endings. Not only, love, normal, and bad (like when you make a false selection), but also 4 type of true endings… WHAT 4??? Yes. They are all true ending, but it will differ based on your choice, since your choice will determine the Main Character’s type like what I said before. Seme or Uke and Female or…

3. Male! So yes, I’m considering to make BL ending at this route! If you worry about the MC doing sth like sex surgery in reality, don’t worry it won’t be happened. The condition, situation within this route is different. *I can’t say it in detail because it would be a huge spoiler!!

4. You might know what happened after Akio, Takashi and Kuon route. Errmm…. I don’t know yet if I will make a quite long after story since it is already quite long itself (kurenai route).

Hope you like it!

 

It’s been quite long since the last time I’ve updated my site. March? ^^; I kinda feel I wrote more at tumblr lately.

Anyway, first I’d like to introduce some apps I’ve recently released (・ω・)

East Tower (Android) ←Click to jump to Google Play
Currently Available routes: Akio and Takashi

 

East Tower – Kuon ←Click to jump to AppStore
*not that new but I haven’t announced this on this blog… so ^^; 

And the current process:

I’m now writing the plot for East Tower – Kurenai. This one, might be the longest East Tower I’ve ever made. I have a few of ideas of East Tower – Kurenai that might change later, depends on the situation:

1. You can make the mc aggresive (seme) or passive(uke) depends on your choice.

2. There will be 2 big parts, the stage1~7 like what you know and the part where east tower run into chaos.

3. There are after story of other characters. (might be disposed if I have no time)

4. Some animals will appear and they might have big roles.

5. There will be more than 2 ending (normal and love)

6. Harem ending? (I’m still considering this but it might be hard to make)

Well then! Hope you like it 😀

Some people has complained me, saying my game is too expensive even though it is voiced. Okay let me explain in now how “voices” will make the work more complicated than an unvoiced game.

See, to make a game we will have the scenario (of course).
Let me show you the screen caps of my scenario (in Japanese, already being proofread)

image

 

I can’t just give this to the Voice Actor to read. First I need to make an excel file of this like:

image

 

yep. I need to write down the voice code, and comment, to make them know what is the situation when the characters are speaking. But again, this is not the script I need to give to the voice actors. I need to make it show vertical! Japanese are used to read vertical scripts, and most of the VAs I used asked me to write it that way. Remember Japanese comic? they are all written vertically. I need to convert it to:

 

image

 

Yes. this one is pdf, and what I gave to Misaki VA.Well I bet all developers have their own style to make the final script, so it might be differ each other.

So, is this finished? No.

after I gave this final script to the VA, they will send me the voice data in like 1-2 weeks. and then I need to check them. cut the voice per dialogue, and delete some part which they recorded their breath too loud (like ighhhh when they took breath between words), and then check. Since some VA read the dialogue wrongly ^^;;; like “oishiii”(long i) and “oishi” is different. Also some kanji have 2 way of reading. 「何百面相」can be nanbyaku mensou, or nani, hyakumensou. *dies and sometime I have no choice to ask them retake the voice. Not mentioning the noise. Yes, I need to clean the data from noise too! ^^;;

And then lastly debugging. I need to make sure I’ve put the right voice on the right dialogue. Yes that was a long progress to do ^^;;;

…thought it’s not really a new year anymore orz. Sorry for being too late. Too many things happened at Christmas and New Year.

I lost my iPhone at Christmas Eve at Malaysia’s taxi or airport (I’m not sure which one) so my earlier days on this new year were full of panic. I need to get a new iDevice first before I can make Kuon route. orz. Also it was a great rain when I attended the winter comiket last year. Full of people, yes. And too many bellongings orz. Thanks to some VAs, I finally managed to bring my stuff there and home safely (yeah they helped me to sell the stuffs there).

About comiket, seriously I was surprised. There are too many people (of course) but more than that, people close their table much much faster than any other cons I have ever attended. Comiket is just 1 day (it was 3 days long, but different circles will attend on each days), 10am to 4 pm. But then many circles has already closed at 12, even if their games are not sold out. Then at 2pm, people surrounded my table has already started to close their table too. TOO FAST. I mean, it’s not cheap! Just 1 day and it costs more than 100 usd! But seems that people who came from different region wanted to close the table earlier so they can go to other booth, or go to Akihabara to buy some stuffs there. I see I see… but then my table there was so lonely without any people surrounded me 🙁

anyway, The new year has already come, so I’ll start to make kuon route asap.

This route, might be darker. And actually I kinda confused how to add the comedy onto it.

Hope you’ll like this one too ^^;;;

Sorry for the long update. Too many things happened lately and I didn’t have enough time to update this blog.

Okay, so, like what you might already notice, Cafe 0 ~The Drowned Mermaid~ has been released for iOS last month. I’m so sorry that I can’t release East Tower – Takashi on schedule (which I hoped to release last month actually) because of various reasons.  The proofreading (Jap) kinda took more time than Akio, because the person in charge is very busy now, and then I got sudden business to go aboard for more than a week, and then some of the voice data needs to be retaken, because of echo and some other technical problems. And also, this one will be longer than Akio. I will sell it at same price with Akio route, 5.99 USD. 🙂 I haven’t finished coding East Tower-Takashi now, but as long as what I see from the scenario, I bet it will be around 50% or more longer than Akio route.

And then… well actually, I kinda redraw some sprites (again) to fix their eyes for Takashi path. swt. Akio path, and the Lite one will also get the update later once I’ve done the Takashi path. Another thing new at Takashi path, is, that I’ll use 9 VAs. (I use 7 at Akio path) 2VAs will join this game, which will voice some character that appear in the past arc.

Last, for anyone that wait the Android version of the game, I must say I’m very sorry to say this but, I still can’t make the Android version currently. Not just because I will need more time for it, but I also just realized that, I might get problem with google checkout, because of my country movement. I registered google checkout using my Japan address and bank acc, but then if they ask for identity confirmation, I won’t be able to prepare it because I moved to other country. And my current country is one of the country where we can’t sell paid apps yet in google play store. SWT. Another problem is, the file size. I hardly compress the file below 50MB because it’s fully voiced. I know that google said we can use extension file for it but, the problem is that, I don’t know how to use it ^^;  So, I’m very sorry, but it seems that I don’t have any option now beside concentrating in iOS app development.

Thank you for your attention and I hope you enjoy the games 🙂

Chu-3

Finally it’s released …. puh…. it does seriously take time. I hope you like it anyway :3

Also I just wonder about few things so yeah I made a new poll as below:

Which one do you have

I’m thinking to make android version of the game later. Maybe around end of the year or next year, since I heard android is easy to get pirated, and it doesn’t sell well compared to iOS. But then I heard that more people like Android better surround me. So well yeah, I wonder to know about this more :3

It’s pretty much done. Maybe  I will submit it to apple tomorrow since it’s already too late today.

I don’t know how long Apple will examine my apps, but it seems to be around 5 work days.
I’ll try to set July 18 for the release date, but it’s all up to Apple. Anyway, the game itself will be 5.99 usd, and the demo will be free.
Akio Route only, since I haven’t finished other character’s route.

What I can say about Akio route, is that this game is like an introduction about the world of East Tower. There are some episodes where Akio is confused with his feeling, since he thought the main character is a man.

You might be confused with this game genre. But yeah. this is a mystery comedy otome…. how do I suppose to say that??? swt
I guess you’d better to try it yourself to understand. Seriously I hardly find any words to describe it ^^;;;

Also, I got so many questions asking if the game will be available on PC too or not, also, android.

Okay I did a test. The game is working fine on PC, Mac, Android, ipad, iphone. But!!!!

It will look shaggy aka the flash effect happened because of the difference of resolution>> for android tablet, ipad and android phone

For PC and Mac, I will need to recode some menu, since I disabled the full screen feature (you won’t need it for iOS). And also, it’s too short if I need to sell separately for PC an Mac.

So the conclusion is, the game will be available for iPhone/iPod touch next week ( if there’s no problem with Apple side), hopefully.

 

 

 

It’s been a while since the last time I renewed my blog. I’m sorry. Too many things happened lately that beyond my prediction.

It’s a weird 2 months seriously. I never thought I will go to Japan repeatedly many times like this LMAO. Anyway, I managed to ask Toranoana in Japan to sell Cafe and dupli, also I meet some seiyuu I knew from twitter and bakufu there. It’s hella fun (★ω★) and so LOL hahahaha! I also went to butler and seiyuu cafe, but I won’t tell more about them here.

Anyway, about East Tower, it’s pretty smooth so far. I just need 1 more CG to finish the game, probably will start the test from tom. Also, Google has approved my acc fine, so I can release on Android as well. Too bad I made it on iOS  resolution (960×640) which means I need to change some image and menu to fit it on Android (800×480) so yeah… Android might need to wait until the iOS ver is done.

 

Hope you like it~~
