I had done it. I had come up with a good name for the Japanese game that I thought worked quite well. Then I found out a simple site just doing flashcards is already using it. Crap.
Anyways, I want to talk about companions today. Companions are characters that will learn Japanese along with you and help you out. They won't be teaching you Japanese. That's my job. There is one character that is the default companion. All the rest will be taken from other independent games or comics. I currently have two more companions in the game. Miranda from Siphon Spirit and Dirk from Frayed Knights. I'm planning on having more companions available, but I want the game working and with some final art to the companions before I go asking other people if they are willing to put their character in my game.
Companions will obviously have different art. They will also all have their own personalities. During lessons each companion may have different things to say. Companions also have one more major role to play in the game, but I'll be covering that next week!
