✩ CHAPTER THREE OF THE COLOUR DIVIDE ✩
Length: 13 minutes
Time taken to make: 7 months
Meanwhile, back in Aurora... looks like this city has some ugly secrets.
Woah... This chapter was quite the journey to make! And not just in the sense that it's the longest amount of time I've ever spent making a project. I've grown so much since starting with the Colour Divide trailer last year - and I've tried my best to apply what I've learned to making this chapter! (The characters have proper feet now! Ikr, like, what?? They might even all have ears soon at this rate! *GASP* XD)
And this was the most difficult chapter so far to make. I've learned from that, too. I changed the way I used to structure my chapters to use less assets - now, I have separate sprites for each character's mouth!
This was probably the most ambitious script I've ever made for a chapter. There's so much subtlety and layers I wanted to show, and I've tried my best to pull that off. ^.^"
I'm really interested to hear your reactions to the characters: what do you think of Zora now? Do you think she should trust Drake? Did you pick up on the way the Carer at the orphanage was totally brainwashing the children?
This chapter is the one that has moved the furthest away from the original role play. So hopefully, my four fellow original role play buddies, I have some surprises in the plot in store that you won't already know are coming. XD
In this chapter, I've started to incorporate another role play thread that happened some time after the release of Chapter One, between @-LadyNightLore- and I. We were just rping for fun, like the many others in the Colour Divide RPG studio, but the story we created ended up fitting very well with the rest of the story of my series, and I decided to use it for the official storyline!
Omg I just realised that at this rate of releasing chapters, I'll only be finished with the series in more than four years' time... O.O"
One of the big challenges I faced when making this, was hitting the data limit when I got to around 80% finished. Huge thanks to my family for, firstly, calming me down 'cause I was frEAKING OUT, and then helping me find a way to reduce the bit rate of my big music files to bring down the size of the project. <3 (So if you want to use the music I used here in one of your projects, please go get it from the creators' projects, usernames linked below in the credits.)
Thank you so much to the wonderful @-LadyNightLore- for having so many (often late-night) discussions with me, sorting out plot holes and character development! <3
GIGANTIC THANK YOU ACCOMPANIED WITH LOADS OF VIRTUAL HUGS to my amazing voice actors!!! You've really brought my script to life in a way I never imagined possible. <3 <3
