Anonymous sent: Will we be seeing more character profiles soon? I really like the characters announced so far!!! :D

Oh, hi! I put the character profiles up as soon as I receive the portrait set for said character from my lovely portrait artist, Teresa.

I’ve been thinking on posting character design sheets and character sketches I’ve done myself but I’m not sure if you guys would be interested in that. 

For example, this is a sketch I sent Teresa so she could work on their portraits:

Would you guys be interested if I started posting more sketches like this?

[Update: The farm]
I finished the maps for the initial player’s farm! Click here for full size || Click here to see the individual maps
The farm will be divided in 3 different areas:
Animal Area: (Top left) Includes the barn, chicken coop, horse stable and lumber storage.
House Area: (Top right) Includes the player’s house and dog house.
Field Area: (Bottom right) Includes a 14x8 field.
The player will be able to purchase more land and upgrade the current buildings later on.
I also received the default female player sprite:


Check out this game being made by the sprite artist, it’s coming up in a few days: Dreaming Mary.

Have a great week, everyone!! :D

[Update 11/04/14: Announcements, the team and what’s coming up next!!]

Team Update
As you can see up there those are the new portraits for the game made by the lovely Teresa who offered her help with the game. I absolutely love them and I think this style really fits in the game!!

Make sure to follow her on her tumblr and deviantart.

Here’s a before and after of the sprites in game:

After the overwhelming response to that support post I made a few weeks ago, I can say now I have a very solid team helping me with the game (7 writers, 3 artist, 2 musicians and 2 eventers).

Check out this game being made by one of the artists, it’s coming up in a few days: Dreaming Mary.

So, what’s coming up next?
I’ve taken down the farming beta that I uploaded back in January, so thank you to everyone who played and submitted feedback!

The whole team is working to make another beta possible with an improved farming system and we’re hoping to include a shipping system and relationship system. This new beta should be coming out on late May or sometime in June.

The new beta will also introduce new characters and multiple maps!

I have updated Seth and Lisa’s profiles on the character’s page, and also included Josh’s.

There will be more updates over this weekend, with more updated maps and screenshots! :)

I’ve been quite busy with midterms this week so I’ve been unable to work on Moonlight Tales, but just know that me and the team are working really hard on this project!!

I have a lot to show you guys, including the new portraits for the game!!

But I’ll keep that a surprise until Friday! I hope you all are having a wonderful week and thank you again so much for the support you’ve been giving the project!!

The beta will be available until this Friday so make sure to check it out!!

Harvest Moon fan projects masterpost!

In case you don’t have enough Harvest Moon, make sure to check all these awesome fan projects! Some of them are up in kickstarter and some need help to be greenlit on Steam.

Please note that none of these are completed projects and most of them are still on early stages of development, give your support to all of them!! :)

If you know of any other games make sure to add them to the list!

I had a few spare hours (actually I was just avoiding homework) and I evented a new menu, it looks way better than the old one! 
Right now I’m working on the farm map, and I’m also receiving stuff from my new team of writers and artists. Expect a more detailed update over the weekend :)
Good luck with the rest of your week!!

 PROJECT RECRUITMENT

Right now it’s only just me working on this project and I don’t have much time to work on it because of university and other responsibilities. This is a list of things that I could use some help with:

  • Musicians: To work on all of the songs and sound effects for Moonlight Tales.
  • Writers: To write dialogue, scenes and in-screen text.

Now, remember this is a non-profit project so I won’t be able to pay you in any way, if you’re still able to help you will be of course credited for all of your work. 

If you’re interested in helping, please send me a not anonymus tumblr ask or an email to fsmoonlighttales@gmail.com, I’ll get back to you as soon as I can! :)

Feedback and publicity is always very much appreciated as well, please help us spread the word about Moonlight Tales!!!

Currently all artist and writer positions have been filled! We’re still looking for a musician and it would be pretty swell of you all to spread the word about the project! 

Thank you so much for the support and expect more updates in the near future!!

Anonymous sent: I saw the post you made with recruitment for your project. If it's still needed, I'd be willing to help out with writing if possible.

I’m working on selecting a team of writers right now. There are many characters and that means a lot of dialogue and cutscenes to be written, so I could use all the help I can get!!

If you still wanna apply please send me a non-anon message (so I can contact you directly) or an email at fsmoonlighttales@gmail.com.

Thank you for your interest and I hope you’re having a great day!
