All possible outcomes of dating simulator
The action movie and romantic comedy consist of 3 screens each, act 1, act 2, and act 3.So basically I am reducing a 2 hour movie to a 3 panel comic strip and finding it very easy to do.In the case of the crowded movie theater, it turned out that the theater prop I bought for the occasion has an audience of low resolution patrons already included, they just look kind of crappy.So instead of a mission to create lots and lots of people to fill the seats, the challenge became, how do I make the crappy looking people look less crappy. First, a darkened theater where the primary source of light is the movie screen, thus making the audience backlit helps.
The still above is from the romantic comedy (just kidding).
Second, strategically covering the round heads with low res hair models I have collected over the years makes it look better than it really is.
If you look at just the silhouetted heads it looks like a theater of unique characters.
It is only looking at the arms and further away characters that give away the cheat. Now I have thought about “going to the movies” as an option for a date since I started working on the first dating simulator, and I had always had it where, you talk for a bit before the movie, then two hours go by, and then you talk afterwords.
But since the theater turned out so easy, I took up a new challenge of doing fake stills of the movie you are watching as an entertaining way of saying “time is passing, and all you are doing is watching a movie”.
With dozens, possibly even hundreds of possible dates (no where close to the tens of thousands of possible dates in the first game, just keeping it more real this time), completing the graphical work on just one of those dates is a milestone.
