The crystal Kingdom of Chalcedonia was once a beautiful place, under the rule of the Princess Rosalia, they lived happy peaceful lives. Until one day, monsters called Nightmares destroyed the kingdom. Princess Rosalia and her fairy knight, Diana hid deep in the castle. Praying that their last hope, the magical Rose Crystal Mirror would produce a miracle and save their home. However, they were attacked by the leader of the Nightmare Agency, Druzy. Diana fought helplessly before finding herself transported Earth, but her Princess was no where to be seen.  

Unfortunately the nightmares began to attack this new world too.

And More!!

By crowdfunding MWDH, I will be able to afford additional assets and partial voice acting for the game! 

I will also be able to dedicate more time toward art and writing for the game and hire assistants to speed up the process! Hopefully leading to a much more polished game in a shorter amount of time. Because this project has become so big, crowdfunding the game will also make it possible for a F2P version to exist so that everyone can experience a full playthrough of the game.

Where is my money going?

Art Assets and Writing: A large chunk of the funding is going toward Art creation. Background commissions, and hiring assistants to help with artwork. 

Despite being a one man team, I will be paying myself for writing. Why? Paying myself fairly as well ensures that I can spend more time on the project without worry. this money will also count as contingency/safety net money. if something goes wrong or if I need extra for certain assets, this money can help pay for it.

Voice Acting: another chunk of the games funding is going toward voice talent! Hiring talented voice acting costs a lot of money! This game will be partially voiced. Why only partial? It would be extremely irresponsible and unwise to fund voice acting without a complete wordcount of the game!

Programming: a lot of the basic programming has already been done for the demo! But since i am not a coder i will be hiring an experienced programmer in order to make the game more polished, run smoothly, and help me out with the work that has already been completed.

Music: Several tracks will be commissioned by a talented composer to make the sound of the game just as magical as the story! 

Kickstarter Rewards and Goodies: Unfortunatley merch doesn't grow on trees! In order to pay for the rewards some money would need to go toward it as well!

Kickstarter fees: Kickstarter takes about 8-10% of the money earners for processing fees! 

6400 USD [REACHED!!!]

As of right now everyone has one basic pose with multiple outfits, If I meet this stretch goal I will add a second pose to the heroes and villains.

 6900 USD [REACHED!!!]

This stretch goal adds additional musical tracks to the game! The main heroes will get battle versions of their leitmotifs to make the game more rich!

7900 USD [REACHED!!!]

If this goal is met I will add a romantic route for the nightmare agent, Opal to the Deluxe version of the game. The money will go toward additional art, writing, and voiced lines for Opal! 

 9100 USD [REACHED!!!]

In order to reduce the cost of the game, I prioritized the fantastical magical background art of Chalcedonia and related areas. If this goal is met, I'll be able to commission more original background art!

 10,000 USD [REACHED!!!]

Right now the fairies share a joint friendship route, but if this goal is met, I'll add in separate romance route in the DX version for Valerie's fairy partner, Diana! The money will go toward additional writing, art, and voiced lines for Diana! Opal's route will also become free-to-play if this goal is reached!

My name is Xeregha Lopez, most of you know me as Arthur, PastelPyon, or Pyonkotchi, the creator of Magical Warrior Diamond Heart. I am the main writer for the game, the lead artist, character designer, and I also made the logo and GUI. I'm a full-time college student and a freelance artist, as you can imagine that makes me quite a bit busy! Despite this I'm pretty much hopelessly devoted to this project <3 You can find me on Twitter and Tumblr, and email me at XereghaL@gmail.com for general inquiries and DiamondHeartVN@gmail.com for MWDH related questions!

I came up with the concept in 2014, back then it was a smaller scale project meant to be a NaNoRenO game, but it has grown far beyond my imagination since then <3 I have dabbled in Ren'Py before but this will be my first full fledged release (Liam goes to snurch doesn't count!). 

I have been working on the game alone for the past few years, but now there are many talented people who help and support me make the game become much more magical than it ever was before! 
Some of the people who help with the project are:

And the incredibly talented cast of voice actors <3






Risks and challenges

The initial demo for Magical Warrior Diamond Heart was released in 2014 by a single person team, since then there has been many updates to the game, story, and character design and artwork, since then there has been many bumps in the road toward its development.

The biggest challenge that will come from development is that the game is being made by one person who is a full time college student. While many friends and generous people help out with the project, the writing is being done by a single person which will and has made progress a bit slow.

However, Magical Warrior Diamond Heart is a passion project to the core. Despite hardships, family emergencies and tragedies, and college stress, work on the game has never stopped. I have never once considered dropping it, and I am confident that the game will be finished, and if any complications arise, all backers and supporters will be informed ASAP.

If unfortunately, the game does not receive funding, this will not stop the game from being made, however it will be a smaller scale project and wont fully reflect the true vision of the story.
