|Post subject:||New PyWright game in the works (Read for more info)|
I'm a generally new member to the forums, although I have been on the Discord for a long while now. In fact, the only reason I made an account in the first place is to find a place to discuss on an upcoming fangame I've been thinking on for a long while now. The game is called Tesla Thunderman: Ace Attorney. It's a personal side-project I wanted to do for a while that might help me with making stories. Since I'm not the one who enjoys group projects, I'm gonna do it solo, although feedback, contributions and all that jazz would be nice whenever I get around to fleshing it out. If the title didn't give it away, it's gonna be made in Pyright, although if I could, I would also try to make it in PWLib too; I chose PyWright just because it's much easier to program since I know jackshit about programming, so I went with the most basic coding. I hear KSA's working on a converter to make AAO and PyWright cases into PWLib, but I'm still sticking to PyWright for initial creation.
So I bet you're wondering: how is it in terms of completion?
Well so far, everything has an outline, I just need to flesh it out. The issue is, due to life, school and cancer and shit, I've slowed down and separated a bit from this project for a while. That's not saying I won't ever work on it, I'm just saying I'll not focus on it too much rn. Besides, I have other side projects too.
Most of the characters have designs, characteristics and personalities already attached to them. There will be recurring characters and the occasional reference here and there. I will go in-depth on 3 central, non-spoilery characters.
Spoiler: Tesla Thunderman
Of course, I'm starting with the protagonist. Tesla Thunderman is a somewhat-prodigious rookie defense attorney. Tesla is very intellectual, being able to analyze at ease situations, and able to perform well in court. He's also very good at reading people and how they act, which can be advantageous to him. He usually one to change cases from different perspectives, allowing him to shock the court with his wits and find the not guilty verdict he works hard for. While he can believe in his clients, mutual trust and assistance is important for him. If they don't want to cooperate nor care, why even bother?
Okay, yeah, he's starting to sound like Phoenix, so let's move onto personality. He's very relaxed, despite having suffered through some tough times in the past. Unfortunately, those tough times are the same reason why he's snarky, and has a bit of a rebellious spark within him. That's not to say he's spoiled or rude. Contrarily, he's somewhat of a nice guy. He's very easy to annoy, however, and getting on the wrong side with him is asking for trouble. He has a strong sense of determination to find a truth, to bring justice to his foes. He's confident enough to try his best.
There's more to him than meets the eye, though. Born with a special "gift" of sorts, Tesla has the ability to "sense" another's pulse. A rare phenomenon called Telepathic Pulsing, this allows him to feel the nervousness of another person in tense situations, and helps him as a lie detector of sorts. He can't do it too much in one go, however, as it strains his own heart too, and trying too hard to sense a pulse would wound him severely, although once the process ends, the hearts eases. This is most useful for him in seemingly flawless arguments. All in all, quite the man.
Name meaning: Tesla is most associated with Nikola Tesla, designer of the alternate current. This is a reference to how Tesla shocks others in court by looking through alternate perspective.
Spoiler: Bryce Savage
Bryce Savage is a top-notch homicide detective. From Great Britain, Bryce is quite the guy, being able to get key findings you'd probably never see. He promises that every nook and cranny has been checked (:edgeworth:). He also knows karate.
Bryce is quite a shaker. Not only is he full of vigor and energy, but he's also quite the loudmouth too. The fact that he's a hothead doesn't help either. He's not mean spirited, though, and he's pretty chummy.
Name meaning: Bryce is a Celtic name meaning "swift", which represents his energetic personality. Savage represents his hotheadedness
Spoiler: Oliver "Faux" Fauxenheimer
Oliver "Faux" Fauxenheimer is the main rival of Thunderman. Son of an already skilled prosecutor, Oliver is able to sweep the court as much as Tesla can. As a dignified soul, he makes quick work of suspects if not opposed well. He's also one of the few prosecutors to have little to no accusation of foul play.
Oliver is quite dignified. A light pride of sorts which he holds. He's very respecting towards the defense, but doesn't hold back at the moment of truth. He's also philosophical, but to a point where it's somewhat annoying sometimes, since he constantly quotes others and rambles sometimes about his inner thinking. He's also somewhat spoiled.
Name meaning: Oliver comes from Olive tree, which is a symbol of dignity and fruitfulness, fitting with his persona. It's also a common symbol in Greek mythology, which could relate with his philosophies. Faux from his (made-up) surname Fauxenheimer means "false" in French, which is an ironic name, due to the stereotype of prosecutors faking evidence and witnesses isn't applied to him. It can also mean false dignity or false fruitfulness, which represents how he's sometimes spoiled.
I already have the concept of each case on my mind, but I don't want to get too spoilery, so just have some details about the first case.
Spoiler: Turnabout Thunder
Turnabout Thunder (
Courtroom No. 2
Defense: Tesla Thunderman
Prosecution: Winston Payne
Defendant: Ema Skye
Victim: Jaune White (Yeah, if you can tell, this guy was basically one of Redd's sons who was
Time of Death: Sept. 19, 2029, 12:35 P.M.
Weapon/Cause of Death: Hit on the head with a lamp.
(classified info except not really I just want it to be a surprise )
-Your badge (*insert joke about presenting it here* )
-Autopsy Report (*insert joke about updating it here* )
-Golden Lamp (*insert joke about the Spanish Inquisition because nobody expected it*)
Your first case is quite simple: your client was personally investigating Jaune over suspicions thanks to a newspaper scandal. However, one of the workers finds that Ema was above the deceased body. They found the body holding a phone, which was supposedly making a call with the suspect herself. The murder happened inside Bluecorp itself, and it's up to you to solve it.
Yeah, this was kinda short and bad, but trust me when I say the later cases are better.
Sprite art is something I'm pretty good at. While my forte is 8-bit sprite art, I can do other kinds of sprite art too. Backgrounds are what give me the most trouble but I can always look up something on Google Images. Here's a couple of examples:
Spoiler: Tesla Thunderman
Yeah, I'm not satisfied with this one either. Something about it feels off to me. I need to rework this at one point eventually
Although this frontal scratch sprite looks better
Spoiler: Oliver Fauxenheimer
Jokes aside, I like this one a lot.
Spoiler: Jaune White
I like this sprite. The head was different at first, but the Grey base forced me to edit it a bit
Spoiler: Random lady
I just really like this design, it just screams obnoxiously colorful.
Spoiler: Forensics dude
One of my absolute favorite sprites. This was completely from scratch, by the way.
Spoiler: Definitely not evil dude at all nope not at all
It's a WIP but I wanted to post it for the design.
Spoiler: Returning character
I still like this sprite edit though
Spoiler: Some judge
Jokes aside, this was my first frankensprite, and I was glad with how it turned out.
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand that's it for now. If you're curious on other stuff, feel free to ask me. Leave feedback too, that helps.
P.S. I didn't upload any art about Bryce because most of them suck. Just to get a clear idea what he looks like, have a quick sprite of his head:
Spoiler: Bryce Savage
(Also this was written in an entire night, so if shit looks bad, just say so.)
