About

The Story thus Far...

Scout's Honor follows a young gypsy named Scout Sarasa. An expressive soul, with a passion for music and literary arts. After facing a childhood filled with violence and neglect, Scout has taken a stance against violence and has sworn to peaceful negotiation whenever conflict arises. However, when Scout becomes the target of 12 cosmic guardians from another dimension, she soon finds that peaceful negotiation only goes so far. Filled with pain and anxiety stemming from her past, an emotionally conflicted Scout reluctantly raises her fists against those that threaten to destroy her world...

...And she does so... Alone...

Development

The game, a 2D Action/Adventure title for home console release, is being developed using Scirra's Construct 2. The initial phases are being worked out on the free edition, but in order to go into full detail graphically and export to a the proper format, I need the Personal License, which is priced at $129.99.

Graphics

Overall, the animation process is indeed my achilles heel. Each animated sequence is 16-32 frames long. Scout alone has 25 event triggered animation sequences (13 basic moves, and 12 special attacks) for a whopping 375 frames. Currently, each frame is being individually freehanded, pixel by pixel in Paint.NET. Acquiring a Wacom Cintiq pen tab ($1799.99) would make this journey a lot easier, and the graphics far richer.

Sprites are currently created using Paint.NET

Audio

Creating music for the game, however, has been a breeze thanks to FL Studio Mobile for Android. The Original Soundtrack consists of a collection of Sound Sketches: Musical portraits of  real-life friends or adversaries, and can be previewed on SoundCloud. People that pledge $20 or more will get a hard copy edition of the sound track!

Fans of Rachel Miller Music may also be pleased to know that Rachel is awaiting the green light to begin working on the opening theme ($500), also to be included in the OST!

Of course, a playable Beta will be available this summer for Google Chrome, Firefox and Safari free of charge! 

And, Just Because...

After all is said and done, 10% of funds surplus minimum goal will be donated to Strange Grounds Coffee Shop

Strange Grounds is a locally owned, independent coffee shop catering to music, art, and creativity. They are providing me with a collaborative, creative space that allows me to come and focus on my project's development, and I want to thank them for their support and help bring about their success in return.

Risks and challenges

Since the production staff is one creative artist (Music, Animation, and Programming), there isn't much that could really go wrong. With enough diligence (And plenty of coffee), this project shall proceed as planned with out a hitch. Thank you in advance for all your support!
