[Thoughts from author]
This is a free indie game created by an unprofessional student. Be honest I have $0 budget to hire painter and sounds workers. This is my first time try to make a game, so I really understand people dislike it. But I do really appreciate people who still support me and gave me feedbacks, I wish I can do better job in the future. Make game is not an easy thing, especially when you are along.
---------------------------------------------------
[Game Intro]
“Shelton Smith is a NPC" is an avg game (visual novel game) talks about one day, the NPC taverner Shelton Smith get the ability to think, he need to figure out the meaning of himself. After he meets some of friends, he get more and more clear sense of the relationship between the Real, Game and Code world. As a really human, people might think their real world is the Real World, but is that still works for Shelton, a guy who born and exist in game and code world?
---------------------------------------------------
[Plans for future]
1. Fix the creepy English Grammar. (I know it..)
2. 12 Chapters of Story, contains 6 characters.
3. Intro video without Desktop. (I don’t know why that is important..but 20% people upvote cause of that.)
4. UI improve, also re-design of the main menu.
5. Looking for free artist...(if possible)

【主线故事】
“谢尔墩史密斯是个NPC”是一个avg向的文字小说游戏。游戏讲述了谢尔墩不知如何获得了思考的能力,于是在结交了越来越多的人以后他不禁开始思考起自己存在的价值,开始想要弄明白现实世界,代码与游戏的关系。对于玩家来说,现实世界自然就是现实世界,但是对于谢尔墩来说,哪个世界又算是现实世界呢?如果谢尔墩从来没有在现实世界中存在过,那游戏中的世界对于谢尔墩而言才应该是现实吗?玩家扮演谢尔墩,你必须带领自己的小团队走出困境,不能让谢尔墩就这么泯灭在代码串里。
---------------------------------------------------
【玩法介绍】
游戏是一个avg向的文字小说游戏,主要的玩法都体现在故事叙述与主角的心境变化体验之上。小说采用第一人称的叙述方式,分12大章节来介绍一个虚构的,名为Sheldon Smith寻找自己存在意义的游戏,中间会穿插少量的小游戏与简单的解谜成分。(暂定)
游戏目前没有中文版本,准备在12月底做出1-6章的中文试玩进行发布,大概在明年1月底会发布完整版。
正式版游戏应该仍旧是免费的形式,这款游戏作为我的第一款练手游戏,希望听到大家更多的反馈与意见,由于资金与精力问题,游戏的立绘,代码与音乐都比较糟糕,被一位steam网友吐槽为:什么都很烂。对此我自然是虚心接受的,毕竟人总得有个开始,希望我能在制作游戏中学到更多,做出更好的游戏。
对了,要是有情怀爆表的插画师和配乐师愿意贡献力量是十分欢迎的,一个人制作游戏真是心酸脑累。。
---------------------------------------------------
【灵感来源】
我制作avg游戏的动机是从上个月玩到: “传颂之物:两人的白皇”开始的。那时候看过这部10月最强新番以后心里发觉avg游戏竟然还能有这样的展开,原来文字小说游戏可以不只是谈恋爱什么的。
在对传颂1-3的剧本进行一些研究之后我也想着能不能怎么样做一些类似的游戏出来,于是就有了这个关于NPC的游戏,我当然知道人家日本公司能做出这样级别的游戏,自然不是靠一个人,十天八个月做出来的,但是我想从这款游戏开始就全方面的锻炼自己的能力,期望有一天也能够做出可以比肩的游戏。
我目前的计划就是在接下来的半年时间里努力再做出2款左右的游戏作为练手,等到明年6月开始我准备做一些更大更长的项目,然后再开始售卖自己的作品。

@Tunlor hi Tunlor,this is a visual novel game, so basic the gameplay is click to play and that is it. This guy is one of the 6 main characters, other people will be add to the game in Dec. What you seen in the trailer is part of the chapter 1. You are always welcome to come back and check the process!
Tunlor Nov 22, 2016 @ 5:47am 
Maybe I missed something, but I don't understand the point of the game? Whats your objective and is the whole game just talking to this guy? Will come back later, but more details about the gameplay would be nice. :) Would also like to see the charater fully drawn in.

One coder to another. If this inspires you to keep learning to program and create games, more power to you. I'll have to revisit though, looks like it's a long way from something meaningful.

I have to give you props for knowing there is a lot to work on in your game. But this still has a long way to go before I could give it an upvote. Even then being a visual novel I think is a mark against it but you do have a promising premise for your story

@Salmonsleeves This game is not crap or joke sir. Feel free to report and downvote, thanks for your feedbacks.

this is somehow even worse than it was earlier today. not only does this look like crap and a total joke, but now it only has three screenshots. reporting.

@JibaNyarth Thanks for your advice! I absolutly need to change the trailer.
