Character Introduction-Elize


First version


Elize is a girl talented in ventriloquism. She is always holding a stuff animal that her parents gave her, because she has a weak body and have limited chance to make friends with other children.
5 years ago, she was famous in her town for she always does performances beside the fountain once in a week.
But since public art performance was banned, people became cold to her. Elize talked to her puppet even more in order to escape loneliness. Eventually the kids started to bully her because they started to think that ventriloquism was creepy. The adults do nothing to stop the kids.
When the whole town began to isolate Elize and her family, her parents hid her in a house in the forest and only went to see her 2-3 times a month. Her well being was taken care by two old maids.

She is easily scared, lonely, and have difficulty in trusting others because of her experiences.

Character Introduction- Kirsikka


The protagonist of the game.
She was an apprentice of the top juggler at the Dreamscape circus, and she was supposed to have her debut performance, but that was never fulfilled because of the disband of the circus.

She has a more careful personality compared to Stella, her childhood friend who later becomes her partner in circus member recruiting.
She is also quite polite to people she first met, due to her parents being gentle. Her parents are supportive towards what she does, and that allowed her to be an independent person.

Finding Object Background Design

This is the background I have drawn for a hidden object mini game in my flash game.
Every object clickable is drawn on a separate layer.

The screen during game play was going to look close to this:

Initially I made this background plainly for the purpose of creating a hidden object mini game, but after considering my scenario, I decided that it would make more sense to make the protagonist look for an object under scattered papers. This is the altered version of the background:

I might still be able to make use of the first version background and revive the hidden objects mini game, if I came up with an adequate scenario for it.


Here is the list of resources that I have borrowed for game design (will be updated as more resources come up):
