Part-timer Mom by Day... Dreamwalker By Night

Overview:
Derpy's the kind of mom that has to work all kinds of jobs around town to make end's meet; she's usually the first one up and the last one to bed. Ask around town and they'll say she's a trooper- an easy breeze that'll brighten up your day.


She's also the kind of mom that accidentally burns dinner during soup night. Ask around town again and they'll say she's a real twister- leaves nothing unscathed in her wake.


Ask again and it seems like there's something weird going on around town; something that's making everyone lose precious hours of sleep. And it looks like no one but Derpy can do anything about it.

Looks like the midnight shift just opened up...

Gameplay:
Day Dreaming Derpy is a Paper Mario-inspired JRPG with an emphasis on the exploration of the Dream World and the interaction between Derpy and the residents of the Real World. While asleep, Derpy can use her abilities gained from her many part-time jobs to combat the nightmares that plague the dreams she explores along with the help of many unique, quirky characters. While awake, Derpy can prepare for her night-time ventures by working all around town to buy items and unlock new abilities she can use in the Dream World.

Features:
  • Over 10 unique allies!
  • Hi-Bit Pixel Art!
  • Paper-Mario-inspired RPG Gameplay Elements!
  • Mother-Daughter Bonding!
  • Strange Sense of Humor!
  • PONIES!!

Day Dreaming Derpy Dev Log #11 NEW UNIFORMS!

For anyone who's played my previous works, you'd know that I'm fond of mechanics that change the way you look.



Now I do admit, I like playing dress up when playing video games and often, character customization helps stir up new ideas for character designs. I'm especially a fan of variant designs on the same character, a good example of this would be character skins in games like Overwatch. It's actually an acceptable form of extra creativity that's generally accepted on the developer's part as character skins don't always have to stick exclusively to the canon or be "lore-friendly".



It's an interesting feature that, along with extra polish to really sell the character's new get-up, can make what's essentially a simple asset swap, feel like a new, fresh take on an old character. Now while this concept is generally considered extra content, this sentiment is at the core to Derpy's Uniform mechanic.



Now, while the reason for all her uniforms make sense from a narrative perspective, it's my job as the designer/developer to instill the same sense of getting a different "flavor" on the same character, and tie together what is usually considered extra fun with design to the game's core elements.

And in development news, the sprites depicted above are new uniforms currently being implemented to the game. These can be obtained in real world, with each coming with their own workplace and new opportunities to earn bits. Currently in the base game, there are only two places to earn bits, the Post Office and with Trixie; by adding these new uniforms, the places where the player can earn bits would increase to 6, while the new combat styles from these uniforms changes to 7, including Derpy's starting class.

Going onward, next on the list would be the new dreams for v0.2 and what happens when you press the "Travel" button.

Thanks for your time, folks. And I look forward to presenting what I have planned for the month of love~

This game sounds incredible... I loved Paper Mario as a kid and dearly wished it would receive a ponification. While the fan art of Paper Pinkie sadly doesn't exist. Derpy is probably better as I love Derpy. I shall watch this and stalk this page relentlessly till it is completed.

Thanks for making my wish come true!

Hey, I was wondering if you needed a soundtrack! So far, I am intrigued with the progress of this project, and LOVE the direction it's going in. I'm a new musician, but I think that my skills could perfectly suit your needs. I don't want money, I just want to contribute to this cute game! Contact me for more detail!
