A Million Promises - The Teacup VN Festival 2010 Day 1
« Reply #1 on: April 01, 2010, 01:46:45 pm »

Genre: ? ? ?
Description:
Quote from: DawnKisa
A Million Promises is a visual novel that attempts to test the limits of the so-called "suspension of disbelief." Visual novel readers will witness this journey through the eyes of the young man, Takeru Harukaze and his life in high school.
Takeru and his clique are composed of teenagers with archetypal personalities. A Million Promises is a story about coming-of-age, about acceptance, about failure, and about holding on to the things that are really important in this fragile existence we all live in.
Perhaps, someday, when the developers have moved on to better, more professional works, they will look back on this game and remember...
"April 1st. We promised. We would never forget!"

Two Tales - The Teacup VN Festival 2010 Day 2
« Reply #2 on: April 02, 2010, 12:41:54 pm »

Genre: Romance/Supernatural
Description:
Quote from: MoonlightBomber
This is a microgame based on my two entries for Hero TV Forums' forum fiction writing contest in 2009. After completing those two tales, I had to do this short project because of the microgames campaign that the Baka-Trio group is currently running. I've labeled this "Director's Cut" because I wanted to expand the stories a little bit without word count limits strangling them.

Romance Bullets: Cupids have to adapt to the times. Instead of bows and arrows, they are now armed with sniper rifles that still bring the same romantic effect to whoever is struck by it. Read as a trigger-happy cupid goes on a shooting spree.

The Regretful Vagrant: A warrior who fights with magically-infused hardcore wrestling techniques sets out on a journey filled with regret. Regret over his loved one.

One Week of Eternity - The Teacup VN Festival 2010 Day 3
« Reply #3 on: April 03, 2010, 12:50:03 pm »

Genre: Drama/Slice-of-Life/Supernatural
Description:
Quote from: lordcloudx
One Week of Eternity is a 5-chapter short story that was first published in volume #1 of the Baka-Trio Webzine managed by the founding members of The Teacup. It was featured monthly in the fiction portion of the webzine until the story ended by the fifth chapter and the sixth volume of the zine (I missed releasing a chapter for one month.) It has also been uploaded to my fictionpress.net account.

The story is told from the point-of-view of Alyssa Cruz, an 11 year old girl who is suddenly diagonosed with a terminal illness from which the doctors estimate she would have approximately one week left to live. The story follows Alyssa's daily life with her friends and family. One Week of Eternity explores Alyssa's external and internal struggles as she copes with the reality of death just as she has barely begun to take her first steps into adulthood.

The Wonders of Glue - The Teacup VN Festival 2010 Day 5
« Reply #5 on: April 05, 2010, 01:06:36 pm »

Genre: Slice-of-Life
Description:
Quote from: lordcloudx
The Wonders of Glue is a short story that I first posted using the pseudonym "Haruhi Suzumiya" in the Lemmasoft Forums. The idea was inspired by the unique, short stories written by Kazuki Mishima/Lunasspecto whose works I'd been following in fictionpress.net at that time.

This is a very short, slice-of-life story. I had no specific target audience when I wrote this piece, but I sincerely hope that readers from any age-group will be able to relate to it as this is one of my more "honest" written works to date.

Dream Chasers -Final- - The Teacup VN Festival 2010 Final Day
« Reply #12 on: April 12, 2010, 02:17:05 pm »

Genre: Fantasy/Adventure/Drama
Description:
Disclaimer: The following article expresses the personal views of lordcloudx as an individual creator. This is not said in my capacity as an administrator of the Teacup and it does not express the collective opinion of the Teacup community or its administrators.

Quote from: lordcloudx
This is the final release for The Teacup Visual Novel Festival 2010. Dream Chasers -Final- is ultimately a choice-less visual novel told through the point-of-view of different protagonists.

The first version of this story came in an rpgmaker game released discreetly sometime in 2002-2003. The rpg featured only a small portion of the final version of the Dream Chasers story, which was softly released without music in the Lemmasoft Forums in 2008. At that time, I’d made a promise to release the full version of Dream Chasers with fully-voiced characters while leaving the actual release date open.

Unfortunately, after various attempts at collaborating with different voice actors, the inconsistency in the sound quality and the unavailability of some of the original voice actors made me decide to drop the character voices for good.

Before proceeding further, I’m afraid I must bore you with a short historical background about myself and LSF (The Lemmasoft Forums) because it is ultimately connected with this final visual novel project from Radical Dreamers 2002.

About three years ago, I decided to start working on my own visual novel after reading the English translated versions of Narcissu and Soremata (Until We Meet Again). Both stories touched me deeply, as I’ve mentioned in some of my notes included within my own games. This was the starting point for the persona known as lordcloudx/Cloud^ and his adventures and misadventures in the world of English Visual Novel Creation. I started out by releasing my works to upload.com, from which, they received fairly favorable audience response. Of course, it would not be until a few months later when PyTom (Creator of the Ren’Py visual novel engine, which I used for all of my Visual Novels) himself would discover my first three Visual Novels and introduce them to the Lemmasoft Forums. The narcissist that I am (I like Narcissu after all ;P) I did not let this opportunity to freely advertise my works slip past me (lest I regret it forever and have to do a redux :D) and I soon became a regular in LSF.

It was fun, fulfilling and sometimes frustrating; this whole business of writing visual novels for a hobby. However, It actually felt a lot more enjoyable and meaningful back when I was never a part of this community called LSF. Now, I cannot deny that LSF has become a part of me, just as I have established myself as a part of it over the years. LSF was fun, and perhaps, it still is even now; just not to me. The community has changed… or should I say, “evolved” over the years, not just in the structural, “virtua-physical sense”, nor even in the current population of active posters. It’s hard to describe, but I feel that it has lost something important. Yes, change is unavoidable in a growing community, but the fact that I don’t have to like it either is equally true. That said, personally, VN Creation was really becoming more of a migraine than it was worth for me, thus, with this piece, the final version of Dream Chasers, I say my final farewell (as a creator) to the EVN community, though I doubt if that much even means anything nowadays.

Originally, a sour, biting and generally undignified rant was to follow after this paragraph, but given that this is no longer LSF, but The new Teacup EVN community, I decided to scrap the idea.

So yes, I have lots of gripes with the way the community was shaping up and as LSF continued to grow, I could only imagine how much more warped it will have become in my eyes compared to three years ago. Yet, I cannot deny that LSF has (had) its good points as well. It was there where I met many good people with hobbies and interests similar to my own. It was through LSF that I was able to participate in countless interesting discussions without the nonsense that pervades other anime-related forums.

There are still many more thoughts racing through my mind right now. Things left unsaid but, I feel that they are merely reiterations in different forms of the stuff I’ve already mentioned.

Nonetheless, I would like my ramblings to end on a subjectively positive note. Thus, to everyone in the EVN community, thank you very much and I hope you enjoy Radical Dreamers 2002’s swan song.

I'd also like to express my personal thanks to everyone who has been a part of this project whether you saw it through to completion or not.
