  • The English could use a little work, but otherwise it looks fantastic!




  • PixelPizza is foreign to English. He can go over the game and fix the grammar before releasing it. It's still very good for not being a first language.
  • If someone wants to help me with the translations I would be grateful
  • I would if I wasn't gonna be at work til 3am over here. That's another 6 hours almost, and I've already been here 4 hours. Maybe Monday I'll have time.
  • That sounds bad... good luck and dont forget to sleep. You don't need to do it rn. Ty anyways
    @Mhx Aîr
  • I haven't even gotten 5 hours of sleep any night for the last 3 weeks. I'm pretty much living off of the energy from pre-workout and amino acids. It's fine though, I'm used to not really getting any sleep. I'm a polyphasic sleeper, and I get most of my rest from meditation. The only reason I can't do it tonight, is because if I get off work at 3, I'll get home around 4, and I want to eat something before I go to sleep. By the time I go to sleep, the sun will be coming up between 6 and 7. Then I have to get up and go back to work at noon. That being said, I'll get off work at 10 tomorrow, so if I go to sleep at a reasonable time. I'll probably wake up around 4 to 5 a.m., and do some work on my laptop before getting breakfast and going to the gym.

    The English wasn't really my main point, but ok (lol)
    It's all just minor stuff, I think. There was about 1 or 2 that made me feel awkward, but the rest is great.
  • As long as it's not "all your base are belong to us" Engrish, you can get away with most stuff, but if you sell a game, it's best to polish every detail to get the best reviews.

    Besides the awful translation, the game was good, but it's best just to be safe, because the last thing that you need is to become a meme like this game did.
  • That is just hilarious XD
  • Awakening Forum Update.

    (The game received a small patch and a lot of Concepts)

    I’m really trying to finish this game. Wow, this became so much bigger than I ever imagined when I drew the first Fernando.



    Introduction:
    At this time without any public activity on Awakening. It has received some small but notable improvements (Bug fixes, Adding Sounds, Sprites Improvement, Dialog changes and Bosses Behaviours changes ).
    By the time I was on vacation and could not work digitally I got a lot of inspiration. Making me draw a lot of conceptual art (for biomes, characters, secondary missions, weapons, skills, bosses, etc.) and write the rest of the story and continue the flowchart of all the choices available in the game.


    Some Conceptual Arts I did (I won't post more because I don't want to spoil it all):
    aa
    bb
    I'm counting on the fact that you don't understand Portuguese so you do not cheat with the choices haha


    The Past chooses the Future:
    As I already had the story developed I decided to create "Background History" for the secondary characters and noticed that this was really necessary. Of all the character SugarMoon stands out because it is the character that gives the first interaction of the game-world with the player, which makes it very special.

    I don't know if you noticed but the game starts with SugarMoon flirting with Fernando and the conversation unfolds in a way (let's face it) shameful and long which makes the game very annoying, thus causing the player to stop playing before reaching the most interesting part in the game, where the bosses get bigger and the gameplay and dynamics of the game improves.

    Do not worry I will not change the story again. All I'm going to change at the outset is to remove unnecessary conversation and give SugarMoon a new personality.
    (and perhaps take his name from "prostitute") and add more meaning to the path, thought and choices of Fernando.

    For example:
    - Why was SugarMoon at that time, at that place?
    - Why would SugarMoon be nice to a stranger?
    - Why would Fernando trust someone from Inanis to tell him his mission and his destiny?
    - Who's SugarMoon?
    - SugarMoon is not human. What is she and what did she do?

    All these small questions will decide (and facilitate construction) the future of Fernando and his mission. And that is why they needed to be answered and some changed.

    I want Awakening to become a good experience for the player from start to finish and that captivates both in the Beginning and in the middle and the end. I know it will be difficult but I want to make a good game. A game I would pay for it. A game that would take my time trying to complete and see what happens in the end. A game in which I fell in love with every detail and intrigued me in the universe of the game as if it were real.

    Conclusion:
    It will be a long and arduous journey, for me and Fernando, but I am totally willing to take it.
    And I really want to thank you deeply for all the support I received. You guys have been a nice community to interact with and have helped me immensely. :D <3

    Hope to post here again soon with a brand new giant update
  • This sounds really interesting. Good thing I don't speak Portuguese, so no spoilers. Do you really plan to finish it already? That was faster than I expected.
  • @Mhx Aîr Yeah i expect to finish in a year or two ahah... "already".
  • edited December 2017
    Oh, see, you said
    I'm really trying to finish this game
    Yeah, a couple years for sure. Indie games generally take 2-3 years. You've done great work so far. I hope it grows and gains a lot of acknowledgement.
  • I wanted to say that this is the first game I want to finish (all the others games are just mini ideas).
    Thank you. Me too.

    UPDATED:

    - Changued SugarMoon. Now her name is Amara and she is so much better.
    - Conversation it's less boring and better. Now you can see what fernando thinks.
    - Changued the beggining of the game. Story is the same. Changed the choices. Added Cutscenes bla bla bla. Basicly same but better and with sense.
    - Added Missions :D
    - Added way more Climax to the Battle. Reasons.ANIMATIONS.AND ANIMATIONS.ANIMATIONS EVERYWHERE.
    - Added Saving Icon and Auto-save warn screen.
    - Added Skip option in Story Cutscenes.
    - Changued the sprite of Vamor (Centaur) attack. Polished.
    - And obviously fixed bugs. If you found another please let me know.

    Later I will change the conversation of the Butterfly before the battle. Instead of 3 arrows it will be just one to make her mad.
    Now I will continue working on the village.It's more important. It's so big damn. It's 1/3 made :)

    And I'm thinking of the player wins an ability by completing an mission(optional, it will take more time to finish the game but they are worth) and leaving/completing a biome.
  • I typed in "changued" on Google to see what it meant, and the first image on Google is the horns from this thread. Neat.

    Maybe you meant Changed?
  • LMAO wtf oops my bad english made something good and bad? yes i meant changed
    In portuguese everytime we use an "g" it comes an "u" next so I mixed both languages *face palm*

    Any feedback about the new begining?
  • I'll have to try it out when I have some time. I took a month off social media and flowlab, except Christmas eve. I still check the forums on my phone every day or so, but I'm hardly home to use my laptop. I might have a couple free hours this evening, since I'm off work tonight.
  • This game is awesome. My favorite part is the art. It must have taken a long time to make.
  • @masada!jh4 Thank you...

    Btw guys! I'm almost finishing the abilitys... It's like 50% made
  • How did you make the typing on the bottom? Did you do it in flowlab, or upload it from a different site?
  • I actually did it on powerpoint or Adobe Illustrator and uploaded for flowlab @masada!jh4
  • MINI UPDATE TO FOREST BIOME
    Summary: The game is less boring now. Added Sense to characters and I'm still working on the future biomes and abilities

    Hello fellas! I just finished an improvement Update. I was working in the future biomes and abilities but meanwhile I decided to Update the Vamor (Centaur) and the Lorenz (Butterfly Woman).

    Also improved the Controls and added Interaction with objects to give more life to the Awakening's Universe.
    1
    2

    Vamor: Updated again, but this time updated his combat and his conversation. The same I done with Amara before - added sense to the character. NOW IT'S MORE DYNAMIC to play against it
    3

    Lorenz: This Boss was really boring, she was always the same. And the Intro for the boss was even more boring so everyone stopped playing before even she appeared. Shooting arrows to an Cocoon has no sense at all. So I changued the Intro.
    4

    Also she have a special thing in her, that is the puzzle inside the battle. The player needs to understand what's going on before he can kills her. But it was still boring I guess.

    SOoooo... I added an "second part" to the battle. Oh and also her fire wings are now related to her attacks ;)

    To you guys don't think that I am doing nothing meanwhile I will spoil:

    (This is the guy from the sketches I posted in this discussion before)


    And this it! If you read this, thank you and if you could test it and give me your opinion I will be grateful.
  • Looks like you took that good/evil pathway thing. You should probably make a neutral pathway
  • You are right @CrimsonBlackGames

    And in the next time I won't make obvious paths choices like the first one.
    This one only haves obvious paths because it's the tutorial.

    Btw guys... Do you think I should do an video in the next trully update?
  • I love it. You put so much effort in to it. Id love to play it
  • I just played it for a bit and it incredible. Before making 2d games i had made some really bad 3d games.
    2D is so much better (My opinion) I've switched platforms i use to use Unity 3d. NOT A FUN EXPERIENCE.

  • @Worldwide Rj Thank you so much.I'm glad to hear that.

    Welcome to flowlabe then.
    I'm pretty sure you will enjoy your stay at flowlab. It's much easier and great. If you have any questions or doubts let the forums know
