Hello David! :D

 

 

The new features are looking really awesome.

Glad you like the new features. I pulled a couple of all nighters to get the coding done. :P

Since you guys like them, then the effort was worth it :)

 

 

Was it difficult to implement?

Ren'py can do a lot of stuff. Perhaps even more than it's accounted for. As long as you know your way with python
the possibilities are endless. :D

 

 

do you have an estimation of when we'll be able to play the next demo? Really looking forward to it.

Hmmm, it's difficult to say. Perhaps late September? But we can't make any promises, eh? ;)

I had no idea, but Violet Hill got a brief mention at this Italian article about visual novels.

 

 

 

 

Rough translation: "Scrolling the various topics will certainly return something interesting, like Violet Hill from Red Lattice Studios, Fatal Crescendo from Ian or Prank Masters from Lockvia"

 

Who'd guess?

I feel for Ian, even the Italian's are using the wrong letter at the start (it was meant to be a L, she was meant to be called Lan XD)

 

On a side note: congrats, more exposure!

And the link is from Lemma's WIPs. Considering the sheer amount of projects listed there, it's awesome that we got a mention :D

We must be doing something right, right? XD

Check this out.

 

 

Nightmarish, don't you say? Indeed, it's our all-new fresh ambient sound for-- oh. I can't tell you. You'll have to play to find out.

 

BUT THIS IS NOTHING

 

Behold the microphone used to record these sounds:

Doesn't even compare, right? This is a dummy head microphone. It's what you use to record binaural sound. Don't forget to play Violet Hill using headphones!

Hello FUWA! RLS is recruting for Violet Hill project! :D

We are currently searching for a talented co-artist who can help Darksin out with character art.

Good art skills are expected since applicants will try and match the style and quality of our head artist.

We also need a SDCG artist. For those unfamiliar with the acronym, SD stands for "super deformed" which is commonly referred to as "chibi." Cuteness and neatness are an absolute plus, please send us your samples!

Well, since the rollback deleted a couple of our updates, I thought it'd be a good idea to post them again -_- but with more this time, hurray!

First up, my blog where I'll be talking about the development of Violet Hill on the writing side. My next blog, which I'll be releasing on Sunday, will be about outlining plot and how I structure things. >> Blog can be found here. <<

Next up, we plan on making our twitter page a bit more active, so if you wanna get in touch with us for more frequent updates (in theory) then please give us a follow >>here<<

Last and certainly not least: our tumblr page. We'll be posting updates there and, again, in theory, it's going to be the central hub of all things Violet Hill. Our home base website, if you will. That can be found >>here<<

 

Since I'm here, I should actually update with something rather than just shilling our various social media, so.... here ya go.

So, yeah! There's some Yuki Sprites! Maybe if you click on them you'll get a surprise? :o

 

In terms of writing updates... we'll probably have a common route demo out by the end of the year, all things permitting... then, the full game in 2016! (Hopefully even on steam!)

Well, it's my turn for doing the developer's corner, so... yeah, it's going to be about the art obviously.

Not much of a secret, but just a couple of sped up process videos of me drawing a character from Violet Hill:

(Forgive the quality of the colouring one, messed up the compression orz)

 

Cheers!

Thanks! Yes, it is. If your picture only looks fine one way then it's not really correct. It's best if you keep inverting your workspace to make sure you're not doing anything wrong. Also, flipping and rotating your workspace makes it easier to draw certain strokes =)

I see. That makes sense. If I ever try to rise above my utter and complete lack of ability as an artist, I'll keep that in mind.

 

Completely unrelated, but I didn't notice until just now that your CC avatar blinks. I kept looking away from the screen and feeling like something was moving; then I would look back and nothing was.

 

Damn you, CC. Always manipulating people from the shadows.

(The moment where the post on the Violet Hill thread reminds you that you have to make your own update on your own thread...)

Nice to see that your team is getting more and more members! :D

I just realized that the last time I actually checked your demo was nearly 1 year ago, (November I think?) I should probably give a try to the latest version.

@Diamon, we'll have a new common route demo relatively soon, so I'd recommend just waiting for that one :P

*hype hype*

 

Of course, there's always a careful choice of words to consider. For instance, "soon" relatively to the time it takes for the Solar System to rotate around the centre of the Milky Way would only be about a couple million years.

Tiags-chan! :P Did you think we would leave you out of the loop? Here's a hint: October soon.

-November Update-

lB12r4D.png

Hello guys! How are you doing? We're doing just fine..err..more or less actually.

We're still alive and kicking despite appearances, however there's some good news and bad news to announce.

The good news? The project is very much alive and we're doing our best to complete it ASAP. The bad news....

...is that we were back to the drawing board with the script. That's right, for reasons yet unspecified Alex_Omega

has left the team and we were left without a DEMO script and without anything to replace it. Fortunately we managed

to create a solid and consistent framework which will help us in the future once we find a new writer. It's sad and yeah,

it's frustrating but all we can do is chin up and keep doing our best. For now, do know that we're in search of talented

writers! and we'd very much love to have you if you're interested! So don't hesistate to post below or PM anyone from

the team. I'll also post the pro forma below for those interested :)

As for our current status, we have more assets and are still actively working in what can be done for now. We can no

longer give you guys an ETA for the DEMO due to these circumstances but we assure you we'll do our best to have it ready

as soon as possible.

 

Kind regards: Red Lattice Studio team.
