Alright, it’s time to reveal one of three of Café Memoria Deux’s male characters this time. Let’s meet Jacob Alessia 🙂

Jacob's outfits

Click to view larger, as always. Jacob is Ryne’s friend, and is perhaps the comic relief of the story. He can be quite annoying, and especially gets on Mikaela and Tristina’s nerves the most. He enjoys pushing Mikaela’s buttons because he thinks it’s funny watching her get pissed off. And Tristina is especially the constant subject of his harassment, having eyes for her, but she expresses strong disinterest. But he keeps trying despite not getting the message.

How do you think he turned out? Let me know!

As far as other things go, I’m still reworking the script, and of course working on the game’s engine / Ren’Py.  Mostly on the latter, though, as I’ve been trying out Ren’Py 7’s layered images and I must say it’s an awesome feature! While I do love it, it’s a very tedious process making sure the sprites’ facial expressions are pixel-perfect, positioned as they were when my artist sent them to me. We’re talking about ~80+ expressions between 6+ sprites, plus extras like sweatdrops, anger veins, and the like (and Julia’s removable glasses 😮 ).

That should be it for now. We’re really picking up the pace here, right? Hopefully I’ll have something nice next month!
