What happened to Arkone? Even his pixiv is gone now
Arkone has taken an unknown indefinite leave of absence. He has cut all ties with the team as well as taken back all assets of the game.
It might have something to do with irl stuff, but I wish him the best of luck regardless of whether this is the end or not.
>Arkone has taken an unknown indefinite leave of absence.
AKA "Mom/girlfriend/wife found his porn stash and made him delete everything".
is it at all possible to get some mirror going or is that out of the question
Well shit, hopefully he back soon,
I was still working on a scenario T.T
I have the updated version on my desktop. But I'm withholding it until I get permission from Arkone. I think there's a reason why he removed all the game files on our team's Google Drive, and until I have his approval - I won't upload it as gesture of respect.
Besides, this project would be nothing without him.
understandable. i actually had the updated version myself, but accidentally deleted it while getting rid of clutter, so you could imagine my frustration when I came back to retrieve it. given the circumstances, i dont see him giving an approvalon a full on mirror, but if the idea of a temporary download was ever considered, id be grateful.
It reminds me of last time when Arkone suddenly vanished while making former version of TBS :(
This is a shame. I've worked with Arkone, he seemed to be a nice person. That, and his work was pretty darn top-notch. Hopefully it isn't something that's causing him undue duress IRL. Whether he returns or otherwise, I with him the best.
Anyone have a link to the previous version of Birth Story?
Think it was 1.09 or 1.10.
I got it from a Mega upload link before, but can't find it again now.
all links of any existing versions are gone. I would also appreciate any mirrors.
so, any update on this? my hard drive sadly died and i really want to play it again
Any updates on this?
Why don't remake or make the new one. Let's say "Birth Story 2" ? With new character and scenario
Sure, go ahead and start drawing that new character's normal and birth sprites, practice Python using renpy, and come up with the game flow. Then rip some voice lines from some Japanese VN and slap everything in.
Boom, congratulations on your new 'remake'!
Been studying Python lately (which Renpy uses for more complex actions). But I'm definitely no artist :)
Yet Arkone played all those roles save the scenario writing..
Indeed. Arkone was, for a large majority of the game's history, the sole creator, and even if more recently he started to take scenarios from the community, he still made the art, the code, and basically everything else about the game. Making a "Birth Story 2" without his input, seems rather…. well, rude, I guess.
