A comic dedicated to the anniversary of Beethoven’s death (March 26). I like to imagine that my favorite trio traveled together after the show’s finale. Also, I used screen tones for the first time :)
my country, we bring an even amount of flowers to graves, and we give
people odd amount of flowers as gifts for birthdays etc. So here, I split the two flowers into one on each grave to signify that the composers live on in a way.
Hi everyone! I’ve been a lurker in the RPG community for many years now and recently I’ve decided to put in my all to making my game a reality rather than an idea.
For those who have stumbled on this title for the first time: Desiderium is a mystery, non-combative game made in RPG Maker 2003 that follows Suong, a girl who could only recall her name, and Hau, a boy who also seems a bit lost in the strange inn they found themselves in.
Having this game planned out for years, I really want to get this game done and shared with the community, but there’s no way I can do it alone. So I’m seeking out volunteers that are willing to be as dedicated to the project as I am to make this game possible! Please note that this game is non-monetary, so I cannot compensate you for your time, but I truly thank you from the bottom of my heart if you do decide to lend a hand.
While artist is a bit broad, I’m looking for artists to help in pixel art and conceptual/promotional artwork! Pixel art is more of a priority as that is the style for all in-game talk sprites and CGs. As for artwork, I’m leaning towards any artists with a anime-esque style and/or that are familiar with environment and world building.
Music is what sets the mood of the game, and I would love to have Desiderium to have it’s own unique sounds! Looking for mainly calm, mysterious, and even creepy music! Most compositions will be used for ambiance and situational/character themes.
Programmers are the backbone of any game. I’m not too confidant having things go the way I imagine it to, let alone using RPG Maker. So anyone that knows their way around RPG Maker 2003 or any RPG Maker is welcomed! This is probably the role that will REALLY need to dedicate their time to this. We’ll both be working on the maps and events as well as making the aesthetic of this game work. I have open arms to beginners like me that want to take part as long as they’re willing!
And finally, for all applications, please fill the following to the email: email@example.com:

Projects you have participated in (if any)
If you have any questions, comments, concerns, feel free to forward it through email or through the askbox! Don’t be afraid to send in your portfolio even if you don’t hit all the points! Applications will close on June 16th, 2017.
Thank you all for reading! All reblogs are appreciated and thank you everyone for showing interest in my game! ｡･ﾟヾ(✦థ ｪ థ)ﾉ｡ﾟ･｡
(WE ARE NO LONGER LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEERS! YOU CAN FIND OUT ABOUT OUR DAZZLING TEAM HERE
Keep in mind that this is solely for volunteers meaning no cash can be given. I apologize if this is an inconvenience to anyone.
Your work will be fully credited. That being your name at the top of a document within the demo and full game files, a shoutout/meet the team mention on this blog under (TEAM), and your name/handle in the end credits of the game.
Cadeau is in need of proper CG’s, character busts, and sprites! With an artist, this will be possible– and we’ll be able to get rid of the ugly placeholders and fill them with beautiful artwork provided by you!
If you are an artist that can draw characters in an anime/manga-esque style, (think Sailor Moon or Yuri On Ice), and/or can draw environments and objects– then please come forward!
I am versatile regarding style, high or low detail– minimal or lots of shading– however thick lines are not exactly ideal. If you aren’t sure, then please send me a message! I would absolutely love to see your work.
Shown by this cool kid awkwardly grasping a violin– musicians need to come forward!
Cadeau is sounding a bit dull without a proper soundtrack! A musician will fill Cadeau with riveting songs that will raise emotion where it’s needed most, and leave us all with beautiful sounds to listen to even after we finish the game!
You will be asked for about 3 10-12 second loops, and perhaps 3-5 full songs.
If you can produce classical/fairytale like music, (for example: Kevin Macleod’s Fairytale Waltz) then please step forward!
Cadeau has a range of characters that need voices of their own! I am looking for little sounds, like laughter and gasps that will give our cast some extra life.
I am looking for 2 childish “feminine” Medium-toned and higher-toned.
& 1 childish “boyish” voice. Higher-toned.
(For more info on what voices are needed, please PM me or email me at the following. I want to keep character information discreet.)
Sammy had a fan. This in itself wasn’t all that unusual. Sammy got a lot of letters from aspiring musicians saying how they enjoyed the music he composed. But this was different. This time the fan was a little girl who wanted to compose music like Sammy someday. It was the cutest thing any of them had ever seen because almost no one had ever approached Sammy in such a way. Everyone in the studio assumed he was terrible with children due to his…well….everything. His other fan letters were formal, poised, every pen stroke thought out in advance. The little girl’s letters were a little messy, a bit crude, and usually included little tunes she’d thought up. At first, Sammy had hidden the letters, but the curiosity of his coworkers had gotten the better of him.
“So a little girl just wrote to you?” Joey asked, looking at Sammy. “That’s so cute! You’re her role model!”
“Who would’ve thought you’d be good with children.” Henry laughed and shook his head.
“I’m regretting showing you the letters.” Sammy groaned, slamming his head onto the desk. “Look, it’s not a big deal. We get fan letters all the time.”
“Yeah, but you never get any from kids!” Boris said, tail wagging. “This is amazing!” Sammy groaned louder.
“It is really sweet.” Alice said. “What’s her name again?”
“Cordelia Bell. She draws little bells next to her name.” Sammy lifted his head to point at the little bells right next to Cordelia’s scribbled name.
“That’s so %$#@ing cute I can’t even take it.” Bendy said, holding the letter up. “You’ve been writing back to her?”
“……Yes.” Sammy mumbled, head on the desk again.
“Attaboy!” Joey slapped his back. “Maybe more people will like you this way!”
“I don’t care about people liking me.” Sammy gestured vaguely with one free hand. “You all should know that.”
“Obviously you care about this girl liking you.” Alice said, leaning on Sammy’s shoulder.
“Always good to know your black little heart is still working.” Bendy slapped Sammy’s back as well.
“She’s ten. I’m not gonna break her heart.” Sammy said. “I’m not that evil.”
“Still, good job.” Henry said, leaning against the door. “It’s really sweet to know you’ve got a little fan.” Sammy muttered something that was probably supposed to be rude, snatching the letters back from the rest of the staff. He was smiling a little as he shooed them out, looking down at the letters. He kept writing the little girl, continuing to encourage her down on her path. To see someone else so dedicated to music, it warmed his heart. He liked corresponding with her, remembering when the world had been new and possibilities had been endless. Years later he got a knock on his door.
“I’m busy. Go away.” He said, chewing vigorously on his cigarette.
“Mr. Lawrence?” A young woman’s voice came from just outside his office.
“What?” He turned around, glowering at the girl standing in the doorway. The girl’s face lit up. She was clutching a clipboard to her chest. There was something familiar about her, but he couldn’t place where he’d seen her before.
“My name is Cordelia Bell. You probably don’t remember me, but I remember you.” She said. “I’m going to be working under you from today on.”
