[Finished] Grace's Diary
« on: Sat, May 15, 2010 »
This is an entry for 2010 Life.Love.Game Design contest.

Introduction
Grace's Diary is an interactive visual novel made with Flash and flixel game framework. The game plays out as a point and click exploration/adventure game. There is a lot of dialogue in the game, which players will sometime be given choices to response. DIfferent response or actions will lead the game to a different ending. The game is not a long one, however, and can be finished in about an hour.

I'm not sure whether I can post the game now or not. I'd ask the contest staff first and if they're ok with it, I'll post the link to the game here. :)

That looks awesome! Great art style - what is the gameplay like? A classical Visual Novel?

Thanks you! The game is a point and click adventure + visual novel. So it isn't exactly like a classic visual novel. In the adventure part of the game, the player will be exploring and searching for information or items. The item will determine choices that are available during the visual novel part of the game, leading the game to a different ending :D

I just got directed here from an IndieGames.com blog post, and wow, it looks lovely. I wish you the best of luck (I'm also competing, but my concept/gameplay is completely different from yours! :) )

looks mighty nice!

Being a fan of Hotel Dusk, I really want to give this a try. We need more Serious Games of this quality!

Can't wait to play this.

Yes! I was pleasently surprised to see a flixel game on the indiegames.com weblog making news and winning a cash prize contest! That was certainly awesome to hear and I hope you do well!

Congrats!

Thank you guys! The game is out now along with other entries, so don't forget to try them all!

Also since writing in English isn't really my strength, there are many grammatical errors in the game. I'm terribly sorry about that. X( 

I'm thinking about uploading a new version with correct grammars. Let's see if I can get my friend to help me.
