Hiya peeps. Sallyhot here bringing a very special announcement! :)

So me and   Blazeymix have been working on a little hush hush project over at our Patreon the last few months now, keeping it under wraps until we had enough content for the project to share with ya'll. I'm happy to finally say, we've got enough to share now and we're done with keeping it on the down low any longer! xD

The name of our project is Chronicles of Acorn: Rise of the Freedom Fighters! It is to be an 18+ HRPG game created with RPG maker, set in the world of Sonic!

Here you'll find the official development blog where we'll be showing off a lot of the in progress stuff we're working on. Click dis link to check it out!

What we're hoping to create is something along the lines of Final Fantasy meets Princess Trainer...or just H-games in general if you're not familiar. xD All Concepts, cut scenes and sex scenes will be drawn by me while Blazeymix is in charge of story, coding and level design. We're currently using a great program called RPG maker, which is very customizable and Blazeymix has tons of experience with it having created a few of her own games for fun already.

Features include and will include:
-Original artwork, original sprites, original assets, original SFX, original story!
-It may be an RPG Maker game but we're goin all out with it! We want this to be OUR game! As it grows, we'll be fleshing it out into a top-rate professional indie level project.
-An original soundtrack composed by an amazing musician we've been working with over the last few months, who wishes to go by the name Cilantro!
-Princess Sally as the heroine! Along with her friends Nicole, Bunnie, and the shady Fiona.
-Tons of bosses, dungeons, exploration, complete side missions for your favorite girl to unlock some romantic scenes.. and powerful stories!
-Completely free-to-play, this is non-profit! We don't own the rights to Sega's characters and do not wish to make money off them. This project is simply a passionate way for fans to express themselves.

Right now, the game is in very early development and we realize it's going to be a TON of work to get even a working demo going (Which is all we're shooting for right now), but this is something we're both very excited to be working on! We're both huge fans of the JRPG genre and H-games, so we're thrilled to see what we can create with this! ^_^

Right now the game has been funded by ourselves and with the help we've got from our Patrons over on Patreon. So far we've been able to hire a few talented artists/musicians to help us out with things. Very soon we'll be looking to hire many more artists interested in the project, especially sprite artists who have done some animating work, so if ya'll are interested feel free to shoot a message to   blazeymix and ask her about signing up! Be sure to include some of your work in the message! :) Of course, it'll all depend on what we're able to afford at the given time, but we're not gonna be cheap about it if we can help it and we will pay to get the best looking game that we can muster! ^_^

As things develop we'll be posting them to our Patreon first and then our Development Blog. If you like what you see and want to help support us, be sure to check out our Patreon! The more we earn there, the more artists we'll be able to afford in hiring, the faster we'll be able to get our Demo done, which is what we're focusing on for now. Of course we've got plenty of comics and pinups we'll also be working on and Patreon is the spot to see it all first! ^_^

So I've recently learned about your Chronicles of Acorn, and pray tell, what's the word on the progress? Is it out yet?

Not out yet no, it's still pretty rough, but there is a playable alpha we have on our Patreon right now. www.patreon.com/PokeBuns Went through a bit of time where we weren't working on CoA, but we have recently started working on things pretty regularly again, any updates we have we release to the patrons, so if that interests you feel free to check it out and consider signing up. If that's not your jam though, I believe we do have an older build of the first 2 chapters up on our forum teamacorn.net/i/index.php but to be honest I don't have much to do with the forum and I'm not to sure where to find it, but you could have a look. If you'd like I could ask Blazey (our main game dev) for a download link I could send to ya via message. I'm really only the artist, so I don't have access to the builds on my own, otherwise I'd send ya one but I'm sure it'd be no trouble. The games free to play, so wouldn't be a problem. We don't have a complete demo yet is all, which is why we haven't posted it public yet, but we do luv sharing what we have so far, gives us good feedback. :)

Anywho, let me know sometime. I don't really come around DA that much anymore, but I'll keep an eye on things and check back to see if that interests ya. :)

  You have practically a line up of the hottest bombshells that the Sonic-verse has to offer, you gotta tip your hats to Archie to bringing the the hottest female furries to ever be conceived on media.... but then again.... all Sonic girls seem to have an air of attraction to them? Like Blaze, Shade, and more recently Tempest the Dolphin..... why do they love confusing her for a shark?

Personally, I'm interested in this project! Best of luck!

Now besides original music and assets, are there going to be original voices in the game?

So... eh...is this going to be a full fledged porn game or is this a RPG Sonic game that happen to have sex and violence references in it ? The latter seem much more interesting to me, although if i'm honest, i always feel a bit weird whenever fans brought more mature (+18) themes to the Sonic franchise like in "Sonic Epoch Advance", for instance. Regardless of my position on the direction the game going to take, i can't lie when it comes to my appreciation of the girls here... these redesign are just straight up outstanding. Nicole, in particular, look so adorable. Her dress is sexy but also quite classy fit her so well. I like all of the redesign seen here but Nicole, fallowed very closely by Sally, are my favorites.

To be honest, the first take on the game will have more adult themes to it. We're not gonna have the sex as the main focus, but it'll be there. However, the nice thing about RPG maker, is that once we have all the new assets created for the game, such as all the battle sprites, bad guys, NPC's, new tilesets and menu screens, etc. we'll be able to create new maps and missions and story lines pretty easily. We might possibly decide to create a strictly PG version/expansion, for those peeps not to interested in all the sex and violence but who would love to play a Sonic RPG using the designs we've made. We'll also most likely be releasing all the new game assets for free down the road, so anyone interested could download our designs and create their own games in RPG maker. :)

Well, that's pretty awesome of you to even considered doing a PG version and sharing the assets of the game with the public. If i'm honest though, because of the awesome art and my curiosity alone, i will probably take a look at the non PG version of the game anyway... assuming it will be release first (especially if it has a good story LOL) ! The thing is, SatAM and Archie Sonic character are pretty awesome but they unfortunately rarely appear in project of this scale, imho. To a lot of people, characters like Sally or Fiona are just "furry sex symbol"or something but i think they have so much more to offer. This is why i usually prefer relatively PG content when it comes to Sonic franchise (particularly when it comes to SatAM and Archie). I don't really mind Non-PG stuff, i just wish it wasn't all that people see when looking at certain characters. What maybe ironic to some is that my favorite designs for Sally are those that give her more define features than the iconic Sonic style and usually more curves like Jay Axer and Spaz in the early comic, for instance, but to me, it has nothing to do with "porn" or whatever, I can't quite explain why but it's just a preference of mine. That's also why i love these redesign so much and even why i considered your work as a bit of an influence in my own custom Sally 3D model.


Btw, i took a look at the Chronique of Acorn tumblr the other day, and i gotta Say those "Battle idle" sprites look gorgeous. Not gonna lie though, It's probably because that more my cup of tea when it comes to game but this make me wish big time that you could make some kind of M.U.G.E.N. project out of this... seriously ! It also kind of look like it could feel at home in Freedom Planet 2 LOL ! Anyway keep up the good work, mate ! Will keep an eye on that project for sure.

18+?

That would be equivalent to the ESRB's M rating, right?

SallyhotHobbyist Digital Artist
well, we're not selling it on any platforms, the game is a fan made free to play game, so we're not really adhering to any rules and standards of game making. The game will have more adult themes, such as sex and violence, so we say 18+ just to let peeps know that, as we don't want anybody getting ahold of the game without knowing it aint for kids.

I like what I see.

Also, I have a friend of mine who can do a perfect Sally Acorn voice. (Sounds like Kath Soucie!) If you're interested, I can tell her about the project.
