Bliss Stage's Kickstarter Page is Up

Kickstarter page: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1041711353/bliss-s...

The Bliss Stage team is currently called Perpetual Motion studios, and we're still working on the roster and positions are open, especially for voice-acting. We're also using FAnime 2011 to pimp our Bliss Stage project a bit, and we've been trying to run a session in Exhibition Hall 3 for the last 2 nights but nobody has cared. =(

Yes, the trailer is hilariously awful, please overlook that and look at it this way: I'm the character artist and going to be stepping up as the background artist and animator too, most likely. I pointed that I've both started, failed, and released more projects than anyone else on the team, and I'm the one that's going to pick up the pieces when team members begin quitting when they realize they have to actually work on a project and get along ... simultaneously, which includes having to wait for approval before making changes.

You can see some of the previous Bliss Stage sprites here: https://heartnotes3.deviantart.com/gallery/ BUT I'm going to be redoing them all from the ground up in my real style, not in that one.

What I'm saying is: I'm serious about this, and the project has a lot of potential. I have other sister projects for Ren'Py like Controlled Chaos and Sum of the Parts that have been reinvigorated as well by simply working on the writing portion more while I work on the art portion of Bliss Stage. With the Friendship is Magic fanimation shorts starting production in June, I will be rounding out my capacity as an indie freelancing artist in most respects: H, clean, writer, artist, animator, director, etc.

So, if you're interested in general, click the link, wait a couple months for the demo, and see what happens.

Hmm...thus far, looks pretty interesting, and I love your dedication on these things too.  From all that I've ever seen of you, you've quite the qualifications that'd pique my interests for sure.

Thanks for the update on this!

I'm impressed that Elliott has kept working on it for close to three years. The only projects I held onto that tightly were two VNs with an awful lot of potential that are waiting for me to: a) be part of a team and b) have the energy to handle it and not burn out in 90 days.

But, yeah, he listed me on the roster as "Character Artist" and I was like, hey, wait up there! I can do a lot more than that, and I fully intend on covering other positions too! (insert obvious innuendo) and he made me Lead Artist so yay~

Also, this is the first time I've ever suffered loldrama on an indie game devteam ... I don't know whether to lul, rage, or ignore it. There are one or two people that don't know WTF they are doing, or to ask the project manager and director for permission before changing or posting shit. It's like Katawa Shoujo all over again. I swear to God, if I turn into fucking Delta, just kill me already.

I can't help but think of my own issues with working on a team about a year ago.  Indeed, I think I did a little of all three:  a little less rage, but mostly a laugh and then ignoring it.

Still, things are definitely looking interesting for the time being.  We'll see how far they go!

Yeah, I just saw the release of an incredibly awesome team I worked with to get TCAST out the door on time (if late): http://lemmasoft.renai.us/forums/viewtopic.php?f=11&am...

I was wondering if they'd be interested in joining us if we end up having to cycle members a bit.

If they do join, it'd make for quite an interesting (though beneficial) amalgam.  They've some nice stuff.

Well, carosene basically said "We'll see" and the others are scattered to the winds of the Internet. The team just came together at the right time and place, pretty much. That 100% complete script did wonders for mobilizing people.

I would be her partner on Bliss Stage LIOW.  I'd like to assure you that we replaced the music with something that isn't, in and of itself, a psychic attack through your eardrums, and that the video is much improved: check it out at the same link.

I'd also like to point out that there are five romance paths, including a same-sex male-male one, and that I just realized that all of the mecha the good guys have are animalistic but the main character Joshua's.  My face when I realize the only wild animal is the feral girl's : -_-q  

(That's a facepalm, by the way.)

Not too many people read these, I don't think. ^^;
