Yes, checking is definitely a game feature. As for any special game mechanics, we haven't come up with one yet, but if you want to do so, then go ahead. Possibly something related to Terezi's 'Seer' powers.
I would also recommend going after Tarezi`s power, as they will give you good amount of innovation room.
I would love to sign up to test it, if possible. I will also be willing to do some Voice Acting if needed~
Sorry guys, but I'm going to have to withdraw from this project as a musician for now. Maybe at some point inspiration will hit me and I'll make something amazing; who knows? Right now, however, I don't think I can do it. Sorry! I would still love to do some writing, though.
Hey, I'd like to sign up to do some music for you if there's still music to be made? I'm probably a bit late now, but I'd love to help with this, looks awesome.
Nah, music is almost always a post-production thing in video games, at least by my understanding, so if anything, you're early!
Grab a video game-y soundfont or vst, lay claim to one of the songs on the last page that Groundah or myself aren't doing, and welcome aboard, Straylight!
And just FYI, there are a few themes that would be best to work on now. Mostly the court themes, since the first case is Court-Only. We also need to discuss who will be getting their own themes. Clearly Nepeta and Vriska, since they show up in multiple cases, but you guys should probably consult with the case writers on this.
I think that music should take a backseat to graphics in terms of priority; after all, I didn't even have any idea what to do for the trial theme until the courtroom background art started being produced and I had some clue as to what the general mood should be. Graphics and music really have to compliment each other, and I think it's best to approach things like character themes when we have some representation of what they're going to look like, such as concept art, and their roles in the story.
For example, some kind of glam rock track for Vriska wouldn't fit if she was wearing von Karma-style frilly outfits.
I will say this much, I am at least making every background from the courtroom.
Maybe I'll knock out a few more this week? i don't even know anymore
If we are discussing characters needing theme songs then I say Eridan is a character who needs his own theme. Of course, as he won't be appearing until my case (the third) so character designs and graphics are still a priority.
On the subject of that, I'd say a character design for Vriska would be good, given that most everyone else has their own costumes. I may give something a try myself, but as it's exam time where I live, don't expect it for at least a week.
I am the guy currently responsible for the third case. It involves Equius and political conspiracy most foul.
I made a 'Trial Begins' type piece for the Aradia Megido Project. I welcome you guys to use it too, if you wish.
I think it was The Z-W who provided a really in-depth outline of Case 5 earlier in this thread. Can't remember where it is, though...
Hey everybody, WMM here with an update! Here are the songs I've been working on:
Included in the archive are versions chopped up and prepped for use in the PyWright engine along with non-chopped-up songs.
I'm also whipping up a new and improved track list so that we music people can settle who's doing what. Claims are placed after the song title, this post will be updated as more songs are claimed.
Whew, I'm glad I'm not the only person working on this!

I think they all sound pretty good! Also, I think the "Examination Moderato" tune sounds more like the Psyche-Lock tune really,apart from a few bits.
Sorry if that made no sense. I have exams at the moment, so progress is sloow.
edit: ooh, how do you do your drums btw? They sound much better than mine. for some reason it always makes tr-808 sounds :s
