    Re: TB's Marina Fan Project "Marina Case of the Queen" Official Thread

    I will admit looking back this project started way to ambitious, originally it was going to have a warning system with a huge inventory of useless items. I've literally thought about re-writing the entire project again since working on Bob and just use 2 different endings + plus one bad early game ending where Marina just slaps you for suggesting netorase and says never to mention it again.

    However as this is my own little project and I really love the Marina characters, I want more depth to it then just a basic short story. But who knows, I could literally tear everything up and make the game much tighter without any type of inventory or picture collecting. Without the option to visit different locations, ect.

    Currently my game runs on the idea of you setting up your future and what happens based on your daily choices, locations you visit, options you chose and shit in your inventory. I have to admit I could have been done this thing LONG AGO if I had not included any of this. Even thinking about rebuilding it just with basic 2 options, my mind then goes - well I liked walking around the city. So ok add locations back in, then my mind goes well why visit random places if their isnt a reason for it - then my mind goes well their should be Marina related events for those locations to give them some spice depending on your choices. Well then I need to add choices again, ect....see so easy to snowball.

    Yet I'm so tempted to just cut it all back, re-write it using the material I have and just focus one 2 or 3 easy to navigate paths. Honestly - complete disclosure if I was making this game FOR YOU guys, I would have done this now. BUT because I'm making this game for me and I want a sorta game mechanic in it for me to enjoy - well ya then I stay with what I have. What I REALLY wanted was a mystery game, yes I know I could simply write it as a mystery story but I LOVE the idea of being able to discover the mystery myself. Actually finding clues and going to different locations, ect. To me that makes me want to replay the game more but on the development end it also makes me want to ADD more to it like with the basketball court with more options....

    Its just so much harder/takes so much longer then a simple story game and in terms of you guys this game must feel like Marina 5 will be released before I'm done.

    Hm....decisions, decisions...

    Probably not the update your looking for but just thought I'd share some fun stats with you first!

    So according to ProWritingAid (a grammar and style program which I purchased for writing unrelated to this project) I ran my script for Marina and came up with some pretty amazing results. Yes there are corrections to be made, but according to its stats, I use more dynamic words then 73% of other prowritingaid users (thats good lol), I had ZERO issues with writing consistency (effecting a host of stuff) and a bunch of other fun details that made me pat myself on the back.

    So thats the good news, bad news is - this has been the month from hell for work. I came out of another 10hr day today and just basically crashed for the last few weeks when I get home.

    I know its not the update everybody wanted, but life gets in the way sometimes.

    Never fear though, Marina project will always exist and see an end - I like her too much not too! Every time I see my pictures of her on my desktop (i have a little folder in the corner named Marina where the project resides) I'm reminded.

    Last outfit is almost done too, so thats a big exciting final step because I can redo all the character stands (which actually will take a big chunk of time and editing but oh well) and now I have to deal with the UI. I've been using a stand in one, but now I have to decide if I want to replicate AS version (if I can) or go with something which I'm already using...which is kinda ugly.

    Thanks for the update. While I'm sure many fans would like to play your game sooner rather than later

    1. It's free. Nobody should be complaining; they can play/watch/read other stuff until the day it's finally ready, there's no shortage of smut/porn online...

    2. Your free time (when you have some) isn't constantly used to work on it so stalled progress here and there is understandable

    3. I've spend a lot of time on f95zone the past couple months playing weg since I got bored and was running low on Japanese eroge games I hadn't played yet I was interested in.

    You're not asking for donations like many of the creators of these games are and some of them who make a ridiculous amount from their patreon pages are extremely inconsistent and rarely update despite having their "stretch goals met" to work on their projects w/ better equipment, resources and more free time (taking advantage of their donors generosity... though to be fair there are some who at least have some honor to pause their patreon if they know there's no update coming for a while so none of their fans are charged during that time but that's not common practice)

    Also sorry if you've mentioned this already but if you aren't using it already or it wouldn't ruin all the progress you've made so far have you considered using Ren'Py ?

    I noticed a lot of the creators games using it. I'm no expert but IIRC one benefit from it is the ability to "roll back" choices to see alternate dialogue and results vs. the standard visual novel engine most of us are used to where you're required to create save points and load later or skip forward from the beginning and select the other option(s)

    So this month my project got sidetracked by something else entirely different but another NTR project.

    I've mentioned toying with Sims 4 and this month I spent a LOT of time trying to make it look more "anime" and well...I didn't totally succeed but I found a happy middle ground of a sort. Anyway the idea was based after somebody else who made a visual novel using Sims 4 and I have all these great NTR ideas that I could easily explore using the Sims 4 graphic engine and a visual novel maker app. The problem with a Visual novel version is that I'm limited to a time story unless I make it really short since I like to continue my stories. Still its so easy to make a great NTR story using Sims 4 as a device to simply jump into then take screenshots, ect.

    For example I made Marina and family, friends in Sims 4 including the apartment and I've been having a blast following her around town pretending to be Kenji but basically just playing her but taking screenshots from a point of view that is far away like he is following her. So in a visual novel you would be playing kenji, but to take the screenshots of her I actually play her in-game. Its a lot of camera manipulation basically.

    I'm using this Sims 4 visual novel as a reference for my idea...but I dunno. I'm finding the Sims 4 as a development tool to very freeing. Plus there are sooo sooo many animations and poses I can use for hentai scenes. - Hell I can make my own with just a little bit of time in blender since all I need to do is a pose.

    I was thinking about re-created my game via the Sims 4, but I have to admit there is something about using the original graphics and settings that simple cannot be replicated. Also the hair I use for Marina isn't a perfect match, nor easy to make with all its sticky points as mesh without looking silly.

    As always I'm just working on too much lol

    On that note, the last outfit IS finished for this game, but I have somebody else to thank for that.

    For whatever reason, I stopped getting notifications about this thread, soo I thought that the project died. Glad to see that that's not the case, GL!

    Long time watcher/lurker just wanted to say two things, Im looking forward to the game good luck. And I'd much rather you not use sims 4 for the story, those never come out well and its something people can already do if they wanted. I think you'd be much better off quality wise to use the original art and Novel style, just my opinion. Again good luck!

    This project will be told via my original plans using AS original assets plus new ones, I was simple experimenting with Sims 4 ideas and they have led to another project which will not be a game but a website (or blog or something) where I post stories about sims who share or sharing sims? or I dunno I'm trying to think up a clever title to play off how sims player share their sims with other players (via the gallery) but in this case its sims sharing their own sims. I was actually thinking making a real forum where I make posts as different "sims" and have them upload their stories. However I'm not sure or how it works when your a site admin and if its possible to make multiple accounts as a non-admin on your own forum pretending to be sims lol. Anyway this is an idea in the back of my head and in no form or way in progress.

    Per the Marina game, I'm making the concept of it. Its story and gameplay have change a lot now and everytime I sit back down with it I have the worst urge to go in and change so much. I haven't given it a lot of love in the last few months mostly because I honestly just wanted to do something else for a while. Basically for the last may week and first june week I spent a lot of time playing overwatch. I have no plans for patreon but I can see maybe how it would have motivated me to stay on schedule though for this game because content would be demanded though, and you might all be playing it right now instead of me playing other games.
