Serafina's Crown Characters by storykween
Serafina's Crown Characters
Some new characters for my visual novel "Serafina's Crown" (the sequel to "Serafina's Saga")
So a few months ago I released my first visual novel, "Serafina's Saga" (go here to download it for free, either for desktop computers or Android devices) and I have been whole-heartedly touched and pleased by the warm reception it has received. I also completed the 20-minute animation prequel--a project that required so much work and dedication, sometimes I still find it hard to believe that I finished it (you can view it on Youtube here).

For a long time I have been insecure about my drawing/illustration abilities, and I know they still have a long way to go. But using them to bring my stories to life has been very exciting so far, and the success of my first visual novel has encouraged me to keep trying. I learned from some mistakes I made in "Serafina's Saga," and I'm working even harder to create a unique narrative experience with my next visual novel, "Quantum Conscience." It's nearing completion (though I still have a lot left to do), so I hope to release it circa July 2014.

This entire journey has given me a lot to think about regarding my career and overall creative goals. Having worked in a wide range of mediums at this point, I find that I love working in video games for a huge host of reasons. I love the way games fully engage the reader/player, providing a unique experience and giving him/her some control of the narrative. I love writing more than one ending to my stories and trying to bring those stories to life with art and music. And I could go on.

I've worked on a few other games recently through Game Jams and alongside local indie developers. I illustrated the human characters in the game "Artful Intelligence" for iPhone devices (you can download it from here). I'm also working on an atmospheric platformer called "Metempsychosis" (and you can try the GameJam prototype here). I really hope to keep making games, both on my own and (hopefully) working professionally in the industry.

So my creative journey continues, and I hope you enjoy whatever I come up with next!

From the perspective of a writer aspiring to do visual novels (myself xD), you are such an inspiration, doing all of this on your own, the gorgeous visuals, the amazing writing and the music which is equally as awesome. And the journey, artistically, that you've had is so, just, wow. I've already left a gushy fanletter on the quiz page of your website so I'll stop now...

But thank you, for the inspiration :)

Just wanted to say that I played your visual novel and I found it stunning, for it being a one-woman-show.
Respect and congratulations.

Just wanted to add that, despite some imperfections, it was one of the best experiences I had with visual novels.
