While Magical Diary is stalled due to artist unavailability, I'm not sitting around doing nothing; here's another little project we have going on at the moment.

Oooh, that looks interesting. I love the background. "Mood," "Classes," could this be another school game?

I really like the look of that - rich colours, and the fancy clock on the right hand side is a nice touch. Raising sim, perhaps?

Not school exactly - she has private tutors. She is, after all, the (almost) Queen.

But yes, it is a sim. :)

Ooooh, a royalty sim, now I'm REALLY interested.

Yeah, I know exactly how you feel.

The game looks good though. Interesting concept.

I saw your blog post about this concept - so glad you've decided to go ahead with it!

So, excluding the disappearing artists phenomenon, how long-ish would you say until you're able to release this? I know it's super early days, but my sis would love this game and I'd like to know whether it would be best to pencil it in as a gift now or leave it until further down the track (curse having to pre-budget presents, seriously, ugh).

Well, I know what I'm putting aside a bit of cash for over the holiday season. I'm agreeing with everyone else on the beautiful rich colors. Plus yay, another sim raiser.

Though I'm sad about your artist troubles and hope those get resolved soonish.

I expect a very limited secret test (NOT of the whole game, but letting a few people play the early bit to see if the interface is understandable and so on) next month probably. If no unforeseen trouble this would likely be finished in February... but I never place bets on there being no trouble!

Sister's birthday is at the end of February ... :D I shall keep my fingers crossed for you that nothing gets held up!

(By the way, I am pretty much new here and don't think I've ever introduced myself. I've been reading your blog for a while, and think it's fantastic that you're making a living from making indie games with a specifically female audience in mind!)

This looks adorable! I am so excited! It reminds me a bit of Princess Maker (just due to it being a princess in a sim game), and anything that reminds me of that is excellent!
