Hanako Dash - freeware fan game

Post by youka » Thu Feb 02, 2012 8:46 am

Okay, my first post on this forum that actually means anything (aside from defending Hanako in poll discussions). After playing KS and finishing Hanako’s route, I was feeling real fuzzy inside and somewhat obliged to start working on this game. I've been busy for nearly a month now and have made much progress on my own. I PM'd Suriko about this game before making this post (just make sure I'm actually allowed to) and he said all was fine as long as all the graphics, music, etc. in the game was not taken from KS itself. Since a few was, I made some changes, removing some things and replacing the majority of it with my own. More info at http://www.fundoshigames.com/hanakodash.htm. Before I continue, here's some screens:

And some gameplay footage of the 1st level: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3qXoWdSKtOA

This was going to just be fan fiction at first, but I feel Hanako deserves more than just that, lol :mrgreen: Most the game is already planned out and alot of the unshown features have already been programmed and built into the engine. As for the game's story, it's just fan fiction written by me as mentioned before. It's mainly about Hanako's past being recalled after the whole scar showing scene where she fears Hisao and Lilly leaving her near to the end of her route. I won't be going too hard into the details of the story for now, since getting a little further with the game seem more important to me right now.

So that's about it. Now for what I'm not too sure if I'm allowed to ask on these forums, but with nearly the entire intro cutscene being removed, I'm going to have to practically recreate it. Aside from that, working on this game alone is going to be really long and boring, lol :mrgreen: So, anyone interested in joining the team to help finish this title? Any help at all would be appreciated :)

UPDATE: The story is developing nicely. Someone has also contacted already me offering help with the story line. Most fan works (especially the fan fics) I see are heading in the "few years after KS" direction. So we decided to dive 10+ years back with Hanako, and so far things are getting quite interesting. :wink: Also, level 2 is now in development. Aside from needing help with art for the cutscenes, anyone willing to help with level layout is welcome to too. :mrgreen:

EDIT: Most the above screens are outdated and don't apply anymore, same goes for the gameplay video. The website is also outdated so don't even bother going there for updates, this topic has all the updates needed :D

UPDATE: Level 2 is in development as well as its pre-level cutscene. A new screenshot has been posted of this. Was quite the mission to model, but I'd still like to touch up on the textures a little. Of course, it's not yet complete, still need to add the beanbags, tables and chairs as well as Yuuko's desk. Also wanna work on having some extra book shelves as well as light rays coming through the windows, but I'll save that one for last :D

Also, anyone interested in helping with art, music, textures and level design, once again, is welcome to. I've received a few requests regarding the story since that's what seems to be grabbing most the attention this project gets so I'll say it here: sorry, but there's already enough people working in that department already. So much so, that the story is actually nearly fully planned out already. But as I said, other help is still welcome. Thanks to all those who have taken interest and contacted me so far, I really appreciate it! :D Hopefully I will be able to put up a demo of the 1st level soon.

Here's a screen taken in debug mode of the library so far:

You have my moral support ;)
Really, I don't usually do what I promise to do ._.

But I'll check this thread from time to time :D
Good luck~

Very nice job! :)

You should put in a sequence where Hanako has to hop on dark pavement tiles and avoid light ones, a bonus stage maybe?

Quite an interesting game you have there. The scene in the video kinda reminds me of the "dream scene" from Persona 4. ^^ I'll be looking forward for your work. d(^-^d)

Update time! :D First off, thanks again for all the PM's and the few replies the topic has received. Next, I’d like to welcome Adrian Tudor and Lovro Nola to the team! :mrgreen: Adrian is a musician, artist and short film director and has offered to help out with the music for the game going forward (his first contribution is shown in the library scene and the next will be in the new intro scene). Check his site at http://www.adriantudor.com/. Next is Lovro. He's a very skilled writer and has offered to help word the story. We've been sharing some ideas relating the start of the story he'll basically be contributing towards the story as well as actually doing the dialog and narration himself (I think and hope he's willing to do all that). Then there's still me who's doing all the coding, modelling and textures for now. Still looking for a skilled artist (or just any artist, actually) who wouldn't mind doing a CG or ten :mrgreen: for the in-game cutscenes. Just having them in pure 3D is no fun :(

Now finally for the update. Sadly for everyone expecting something big, this update is actually very small. It's just a nicer view of the library with Adrian’s lovely musical skills to add to the feel of the scene :) check it out here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U1kju9K3634. Soon there will be some dialog to see too, but I don't want to add spoilers so it'll probably just be a redo of the intro scene, where Lovro will be able to show off his magic too :mrgreen:

And lastly, I think it's about time I give my thanks to Maakasu_Taihaku (http://ks.renai.us/memberlist.php?mode= ... ile&u=7971) for all his motivation and input on the game since it started. Thanks dude! :D

Next update should be soon. After the intro, library and level 2, the first demo will be released.

I must say a very interesting concept. I assume it represents Hanako's desire to show Hisao that he shouldn't threat her like a kid?

It's quite a big story, so most things so far that people think are going to be covered, actually are. But this story doesn't center around anything specifically other than her overcoming a few issues she has. It's mostly split into smaller sections, each one covering a part of her life and how that part has contibuted to her current state. (Should've just posted it up in fan fic after all :mrgreen: )

Due to me feeling obliged to post an update at least once a week, I shall be doing so now. Today and yesterday I was working on improving the title screen a little. It still looks crap but it's better than the white screen from before. The background is fully rendered 3d, but there's no texture filtering/anti-aliasing or even lighting yet so it looks kinda plain and hard to tell the shape of. As for the pic in front, that's about the best I can do on my own. It seems I’m going to have to handle the art side of things by myself if I don't have help by the end of the game. I hate drawing, but just because Hanako’s involved, i'll make an exception :D

Small update again, been a busy week and I won't be able to work on the project this weekend either. Most of next week will be busy too, but hopefully by next month things will cool down a little this side and i'll have more time to work on this game. Next update should be bigger. Also, help is still welcome if anyone is interested. :)
