Some Pieces of Information

Since it takes a little longer to finish what we wanted to present you, i will give some Pieces of Information to you.

-Since we made a little Mistake in numbering the Monsters, we will now have 546 instead of 525
-You will be able to jump! Yeah, you could use it just for fun, but sometimes it is needed to get forward.
-Higashi as well as Minami will have five different outfits, but you cannot switch freely between them, except for one: The normal Outfit, the Beach Outfit which is used in the Beach Region and are basically bathing suits, the desert Outfit for the Desert Region, the snow Outfit, used in the Tundra, which is basically some warm clothes and one more, but this last, which is the one you can exchange everytime, will stay secret for now.
-Unlike many other RPGs, you will be able to meet both parents of the Main Characters! Even though you will first meet Higashis and Minamis father in the post game, but you will be able to battle them!
-There are 144 Collectors Coins for you to collect. Basically, they are like Achievements
-There will be different ways to travel: by foot, on a Jetski, a submarine and a Hoverboard. Also, you get a Stone with which you can teleport to special Statues
-You can find special Stones whit which you can set up "Healing Springs". These will completely heal your entire Party and will never disappear, but there will be a limited amount of these stones. You can set them up everywhere, but be aware not to waste them.

Okay, one more thing:
In about one to three weeks i will start a special Series on this Blog called "Weekly Monster". I will give you Infos about one Monster per week in this, detailed and spoilerless Infos. I will use a Random Monster Generator which i created myself to determine which Monster will be presented, so it could get a little strange like having a Monster this week and next week is the pre-evolution of it. But well, you never really know what could come this way!
Also, i will make a little Riddle at the end, which hints what Monster will be coming next week.
And with this announcement, i will give you the riddle on what the first Monster could be, here you go, feel free to post your thoughts in the comments:
"I will bring you luck, in different ways.
The dots will tell you what you will get.
The dots are numbered like the days.
If you see me chase my deep red.

A buzzing noise is what i make.
I'm shaped like a little dome.
The luck is yours to take.
So make me a nice home."

A new Monster emerges!

So, now we will present you a special Monster!
Its name is Eleny, and as you can see in the picture, it is some kind of pony.
But Eleny is very special, as it can evolve in different ways.
If you give it the right item, it will evolve, and it can, depending on the item you give it, evolve in twelve ways.
Oh, what a coincidence, we have twelve elements...
And that is exactly what it does, it has twelve different evolution-lines, one for each element. But after you evolve it with one of the twelve special evolution-items, it can even evolve once more!
How will it evolve?
Well, that will, for now, remain a secret...

So, please tell us what you think about it in the comments, we would appreciate your thoughts on it!

Another WIP of Higashi

So here's another WIP of Higashi, since I wasn't able to do much because of my exam.
(finally finished with school, only an oral exam in mid june left^^)

This time he has nicer feet and hands and a head as well as a shirt and trousers.

And below you can see his first steps, he's still naked there but you can see, where it goes^^

Higashi's Model WIP and some stuff about Programming

Hey there, everyone, it's mobychan again^^

Today I brought you a WIP of Higashi's Model. He's still headless, but that and his clothes and movements will come soon, since I can't continue programming without a model at the moment.

I kinda finished the Start Screen already, but we're not too sure about the design as of now, so we won't show it yet.
Currently I'm working on the Character Controller, so we'll have a nice working, animated and stearable Higashi not too long from now^^
Also I still need to include some nice functionality in the Camera so you'll always be able to see the Character even if he's behind a tree or something and the possibility to change to First Person View to examine your surroundings.

Three mysterious shadows...

Sooo this time I got some artworks... more or less. It's just some shadows.
But if you like you can guess what the colours will be.
Don't look in the Monpedia, though.
