It's been a while since my last update. I'm hard at work building the tools and systems I'll need to bring my epic sci-fi visual novel to life.
For example, so that I can built out the sci-fi novel I've wrapped up my own version of the FABRIK inverse kinematics algorithm into a system that helps me build stories. You can see a screen shot of some posed characters with it below for a test page with some test characters.
The boobs physics have also been greatly enhanced with my own custom algorithms which makes them jiggle more like real fat with hint of cartoonishnes, all optimized to run super smooth even if you don't have a fancy computer (I have cheap laptop). I'm also still refining the style of the characters, experimenting with elements from both eastern and western anime.
It's a lot of work upfront, to create all of these systems but the end result will be a sci-fi visual novel with many on-going episodes that follows the journey of a guy trying to get laid with beautiful women while uncovering a complex conspiracy involving time travel, clones, aliens, drama, a mysterious house full of hot chicks, fun and crazy characters and more.
The advantage of this visual novel will be that it will be true real time 3D, rather than still frames as usually seen in visual novels. This will allow some motion that enhances the aliveness of many scenes as well as more visual variety.
I'm shooting for the first episode to be released by the end of the year.
