Public Beta Build
This is the unedited build of my beta (build 1.03) test for Dizzy Hearts. In addition to being currently edited by my esteemed editor Shadocchi. A number of CGs and BGs and other assets are missing from the game including:
Extra Sprite outfits.
BG backgrounds. (such as the streets of Lungarde and a few others (some black screens are only temporary))
The music is not completed and restricted to only 8 songs. Because there are only 8, the 3 predominant songs are used out of place. Because the I needed to use the music or do without completely. The other 5 songs are the character songs, which I hope you enjoy!
In the next coming weeks I will be completing the sprites as much as possible on my own time. Since this is a somewhat alpha build, the length of these scenes are not complete either, ideally they would be longer.
The main goal of this test is to raise awareness for the project. Create interest. Get players to know the characters. As well as the setting as quickly as possible. Also it's to attract a lead writer to the project.
Doing this project mostly on my own, I've had to wear all the hats. Ideally I would prefer to be project lead, artist and concept designer, and have writing headed up by someone dedicated to the team.
If I was more financially able to, I would like to hire a writer to the project.
Unfortunately I must be realistic and I am looking at the potential of completing this game on my own, where the pace will continue a lot like it is in this beta build. However I remain hopeful that my efforts to create a truly unique and different game will attract the support it has not had, and allow me to realize this game in it's full potential (And to realize many other larger, more fantastical games).
How to test:
