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!
  • 11 different jobs to choose from!
  • Hi-Bit Pixel Art!
  • Paper-Mario-inspired RPG Gameplay Elements!
  • Mother-Daughter Bonding!
  • Strange Sense of Humor!
  • Your greatest fanfictions come true!
  • PONIES!!

Day Dreaming Derpy (Post) Dev Log #19 Sprites and Assets Download

If there’s anything I’ve learned from programming and making games, it’s that shared resources available to the community are, essentially invaluable to both those who wish to improve upon projects and those beginning to learn the craft. I believe I discussed this WAAAAY back in this dev log’s infancy- that those interested in all steps of the game development process could take a look at this, post-by-post and see what would potentially lie ahead. I am, by no means, a professional, but making your own game isn’t as beyond common understanding as most may think. After all, there are plenty examples in the market today that serve as proof of that very thought.

So in the interest of helping future developers and for those who want to poke around the game’s files, I’ve compiled all the game’s assets as well as the game’s RPGmaker project file in 2 handy .zips!

Sprites and Assets

RPGmaker Project File


Go crazy everyone!

And just to give an idea of how beefy these files are, here’s a little preview of just how many regular, major character sprites I’ve made for Day Dreaming Derpy.


Hope you don’t mind the mild mess some of the files are organized in.

Thanks everyone!

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!

Horror_n_Oates! You liiiiive! :D

My knowledge and experience with MLP:FiM is just a little past cursory, but I used to be big on this show regarding the site Know Your Meme and its uploads. I'll see if I can't give this a shot sometime~

EDIT/PS - Is the title name based off "Day Dreaming Davey", by any chance? lawl

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! My e-mail is joelbasar@gmail.com

Hi yall can i use this game on mobile??
I'm afraid not: PC exclusive!
Aww, guys! This game is so awesome. What you did with Tavi/Scratch Dream was probably the best minutes of my entire year. I'm crying right now, it's so satisfying, tho a little dramatic. J-just thank you for the game, wish you best of luck and may Celestia smile upon your work and give it a feather-light boost.

Thanks for the heads up!
As I stated, old saves from v0.1/11 don't function perfectly with v0.2. In future updates, your saves now can be used, now that all scripts are implemented.
If this is on Steam, i would totally buy it

Thanks again for reporting!
I'll be working on the issue!
It makes me really happy that you made Octavia aromantic. More than I can really express. And you made the revelation very natural.

She reminds me a lot of myself. So few characters do, in that way. The world needs more characters who love those close to them deeply but only ever platonically.
Whoo hooo it's finished! Can't wait to give it a try~ It's really charming. :3

Congratulations on the finished game, Horror_n_Oates! If I ever get off my lazy arse, I'll definitely give this game a shot. <3
Mac version? It looks fun, but I can't do anything with .exe files.
