New backer level. Get a character in the game!
Okay, so we're going to try our hand at creating one new donation level.
We noticed that a number of other game titles offer a level in which backers can insert or design one of their own characters for the game. As it turns out, we do have room for extra characters in Errant Heart. They will be primarily used in non-speaking roles and show up for a few minutes here-and-there.
If you make a donation at the $400 dollar level, you will obviously get all the previous incentives. We will personally work with you to design a character based on your criteria, but also make sure the character fits into the Errant Heart universe. Pseudome Studio LLC will retain the copyright to the character, however you will receive a "Character Designer" credit in the game.
As for criteria, these characters would be female, as they live in an all-girls boarding house. Ages would range from about 12 years old to 18 years old. Styling cues for hair design, coloring, clothing, etc. would be from the 1940s (tho, there's certainly some leeway here). Most will be wearing school uniforms. However, not all of them attend the same school. Below is a sample of Nina, one of the boarding house tenants in her school uniform. There are a couple of instances in which the girls would be wearing street clothes as well.
The resulting sprite will only get one pose and one costume, although, they may get multiple expressions.
If you have any questions or want more details, please feel free to ask.
