IMPORTANT : this is a stand-alone release of the ending movie of my flash game, as it was in the latest beta.
You might want to "earn" this ending by trying the game out here : [link]


It's been a month since the release of the "pretty much final" beta, which already contained this little movie.

Since then, I could not use many time for art, at least things beyond sketches.
The fact I no longer have internet at home doesn't help either, and is probably responsible for a little procrastination...

So, in order to fight the complete lack of updates and try to "put me back on tracks", I decided to post this as a stand-alone, just as I did with the intro.

I should also post pictures used in this separately as well : I think updating more often on DA actually stimulates me to draw, so I'll try to launch that virtuous circle running again.

So anyway, the ending movie.
I actually like this way better than the intro. Not saying the intro is totally bad to my eyes but I admit it had its mistakes.
The ending just flows better, IMO.

And you, what do you think?

Sound should hopefully come soon, until then, hope you still dig it in mute version.

Victory Girl just became one of my favorite superheroines. And the ending was a nice touch; sorry that your game project didn't go so well. I would've liked to see more.

I don't know what to respond.
I am glad you like her, but to me she represents a gigantic pile of problems I struggled with for virtually no results.

I don't exclude completely the idea of somehow coming back to her someday. But if I do, I'll definitely go through a complete redesign/rewriting.
But considering the global situation, I am really not sure this will ever happen.

Sad. It pains me to see an author viewing his/her creation as a gigantic pile of problems. It should be the exact opposite; I think creating a character through an imaginative design, well thought out dialogues, and sometimes even an endearing personality, is no easy task but is very artistic and special.
So I hope you come back to that project soon; it seems to have a lot of potential.

I have talked about this many times.

Issues were piling up in the plot, the game code, and I started to hate the character design.
(Amongst other places, I explain it here in horrible audio : [link]

I may have continued if the popular support had been bigger. but basically, it was not. Relative to the work required to code a game, this was just not worth it.
(To give an idea, each game was getting less favorites and views that a quickly done picture of a bikini girl.)

The game also offered the opportunity to make donations. I never got any.

I got a few people like you who said they liked her. Especially after I gave up (probably they realized that the game they took for granted would not come...). But sadly it is just too little, too late.

At some point an artist needs money or a good amount of support in order to keep doing something that big. I got neither so I eventually gave up.

Serina at least has support from my family. Some even offered me to lend me money. This never happened with Victory Girl although they knew about it. I don't know if Serina will ever be a success in the commercial sense of the term, but at least I feel like I am doing it for people who really desire it.

If people on the Internet had done that for Victory Girl, I probably wouldn't have changed my plans.

Actually my mom did that on a pretty regular basis and I also used to make fun of that when I was a kid. She always said that since we are family, we at least saw each other naked once, so there is no reason to be too prude.

Overall, I am fairly normal in the end, so I'd say it is rather harmless for a mom to do that.

Alors, pour commencer, c'est vachement bien réalisé. Tu as réussi à faire un ending carrément prenant, sans même avoir eu besoin d'animer grand chose. Y'a très peu de jeux (pro) qui ont cet avantage, donc c'est vraiment un plus...

Par contre c'est assez difficile à suivre, les textes vont trop vite... j'ai eu beaucoup de mal à lire et à regarder les images en même temps. C'qui est dommage, vu que les dessins sont super (j'aime beaucoup ta façon de manier les ombres et les textures d'ailleurs, et j'ai flashé sur les dessins de la miss avec sa chemise ouverte~) donc je sais pas si c'est la version finale de l'ending mais en tout cas faudrait soit laisser plus de temps au joueur de lire les textes, soit exploiter le fait que ce soit pas une "cinématique" à proprement dire (animé donc) et de laisser le joueur cliquer ou appuyer sur un bouton quand il a fini de lire chaque phrase(comme dans tous les jeux en somme). Par contre, ouais, comme c'est un ending ça peut paraitre bizarre que le joueur interfere dans son déroulement... faudrait aussi voir avec la musique si c'est un loop ou une musique qui est censée évoluer avec les images.

Bouah faut que je joue au jeu, si ça se trouve t'as corrigé ça et je blablate pour rien dire moi...

"j'ai flashé sur les dessins de la miss avec sa chemise ouverte~"
Comment je dois comprendre ça, serais je coupable de développer des tendances lesbiennes dans mon public? =p

Sinon je suis flatté que tu compares carrément ça à des jeux pro en ce qui concerne la qualité de l'histoire. J'avoue que je ne m'attendais pas à ce que les comparaisons aillent si haut O_o.

En ce qui concerne la suggestion des boutons, je l'ai en fait déjà reçue et je pense que je vais essayer de l'appliquer.

Merci bien pour la critique a la fois constructive et positive!

You made her so funny. Even though its a bit sad there is no enemy with equal powers. >;-3
She's just the most invincible and destructive being in the universe. ^^

But...
... she looks exactly the same AS NORMAL xD why did her daughter didnt noticed it? ^^
This was allways irritating, even back when sailor moon was aired on TV. xD

In fact I kinda wanted Victory Girl to convey some nostalgia of these old times when superheroes where pretty much living gods and we didn't care that much about logic and plot holes.
It is kinda meant like an hommage to our childhoods and a time during which storytelling was different : more "dreamy" and idealised could we say.

The idea is kinda the same than in Superman : Sarah can't conceive that her somewhat goofy mom could ever be Victory Girl, even if she kinda wonder how come they look so alike.
I always thought this is what explained the people's "blindness" in superhero/magical girl stories : they actually suspect something but then their thinking goes to : "nah, I have to be wrong" and suppresses it.

Anyway if I ever do a sequel, I might just as well explore this side of the story, with Sarah's suspicions about her mother's secret identity growing... I might also search for a villain that better matches her powers...

Anyway thanks for commenting!

The one I mostly remember from VG is her referring to Sarah "making dreams." Better English would be to say that she "has dreams" or "is having dreams."
