CG BG Update – Yuudai-Mart is looking….partly complete?

Hi all, just a little excited today at the way the shop is progressing and wanted to share it. We’ve done a few more test renders, granted all the stock items are not all textured, waiting on the crowd sourcing efforts for that, but we are definitely getting close to the look that we wanted to achieve.

Character Friday: Kurisu Yamada and Yugo Sagasu

Yay! It’s time for another Character Friday, showcasing another character from our upcoming Visual Novel, Convenience Wars. The idea is to whet your appetite and get you going all gaga over the awesome artwork that aliasvegas is producing. Today it’s the turn of Kurisu Yamada and Yugo Sagasu.

Kurisu is 17 years old and Yugo is 18 years old. They both work at Yuudai-Mart along with the others. Of course, they are in love and on a day to day basis they can only be seen together, in each others arms. Most of life slips past them without even catching their attention. Being so in love, Yugo is understandably over protective of Kurisu and so he and Satoshi don’t exactly hit it off well, because of course, Satoshi is interested in Kurisu…..or at least, that’s what Yugo thinks.


That’s it for now. More details to come soon 🙂


Community Effort: Can you spare us 5 minutes???

So, we’re making a convenience store. As with almost all convenience stores, there is a certain amount of stocking of shelves to be done. In a normal shop, that’s fairly easy. When building a shop in CG, we have to create EVERY item of stock in the store. Since crowd-sourcing seems to be the in thing right now, we thought we’d give the Convenience Wars community the chance to create some products for us. The process is reasonably simple, we’ve included the textures that we used for the various items in the store below. To design a can, simply replace the red area in the bottom left with your own colours and design. To design a box, design it within the grey area. To design a bottle replace the brown colour and design your own label. Please keep all files to 1024×1024 pixels, else this will mess with our UV mapping.

Please keep it clean, ie no swearing or inappropriate content, not too brightly coloured and do not use any images, esp logos that are already trademarked or copyrighted. As for terms, we will unfortunately not be able to pay you for your efforts, and you agree to sign the design over to us, but your name will be included in the credits for sure. Not all designs will make it in to the game, but all will be considered.

All entries will need to be in in around two weeks time to be considered for inclusion. Please email all entires to rakitstudios@googlemail.com

Thanks community!!!!
