Tutorial in english:

The special edition included a simpler game called “kirameki school life SP”
developed in parallel, sharing some of the code with the main game, but with a much smaller scope.

This game makes use of the live2D code from the main game (developed by me)

Parts of the game that I programmed, completely or partially starting from previous code.

– Optimizing Live2D for the PSP
– Meeting Sony guidelines for publishing
– Loading on demand of textures and models for Live2D characters while skipping parts of the game
– Convincing artists that a 480 x 272 pixel screen won’t display 1024 x 1024 textures any better
– Convincing artists that the whole body is not required for a model that is only going to show her face in an 80 x 80 square.
– Menus
– Finding bugs and correcting the scripts
– Many commands for the scripts (Moving backgrounds!)
– Optimizing characters fading was specially complicated due to PSP limitations
– Map system
– Tool to analyze script and create font bitmaps with only the characters used in the game. Reducing the amount of files required by fonts by 80%
– Flowchart
– Not code, but also important: Making an image, uploading it and documenting bug fixes every morning after working all night for the last 2 months of the development.

Both games can be shown at an interview if required.
