It's okay, but it's kind of simple. I don't know why the exclaimation point is there either.

I think for the type of game it is the shape of pink and cartoony level are a little much. A deeper pink and a more vibrant shadow in the middle might work.

http://img812.imageshack.us/img812/8991/logodemo2.png now with extra sparkles! ... but yeah, I'm not very good at this.

Most of the pink in the game is matching Elodie's hair, which is a pretty light pink. The title screen, if and when we ever get it, is intended to be an interesting mix of cute and sinister. Hopefully. Eventually. :)

I agree with Oki: It looks a little cartoony.

Yeah, I agree it's more cartoony than the general game feel. On the other hand it does seem to be catching some eyes and raising interest among people who haven't played it yet, which is good. I'll sit on it for now until we get a title screen and see whether they can work together.

I like this one more, it's still cartoony but it's definitely better. I think we should sit on it like you said and wait for the title screen. I am so ready for the game to be officially out!

Graphical Update

#142 Post by hanako » Mon Apr 16, 2012 1:00 am

The latest beta (5.69.3) makes a number of changes:

1. The coronation scene (but not the title screen) now has a CG.

2. All the ribbon buttons have been replaced with sharper edges and better shading.

3. Big changes to the way class results are handled. I think it's an improvement and makes things look less dull (since staring at these screens takes up so much of the game, it seems best to try not to make them too static). Also, it shows you whether you have a mood bonus or penalty to the class you're currently taking, which may help people who haven't quite gotten the hang of those yet.

However, if you absolutely hate it and can explain why, I might listen. :)

And obviously, if you encounter any bugs with these things, please tell us!

SO WORTH THE WAIT! The CG is absolutely beautiful. Good work to the artist.

I already understood the system so this new system does not hinder me whatsoever and seems very sleek and cool.

And finally...I love the interface being a little more sharp. Definitely great. XD

There is now a first attempt at the title screen.

As it's rather late tonight, this means *tomorrow* I am probably going to start repackaging files and moving into the official Beta phase.
