Have you ever wanted to create characters for the Star Wars universe? Now you can with the sci-fi warrior dollmaker! Create your own Star Wars or sci-fi female OCs, female characters from famous sci-fi franchises or yourself as a Star Wars character!
Like many dollmakers, this has no storyline. You just create female characters that can be Jedi, slaves, or rebels. You can even create characters that have nothing to do with Star Wars. SeekHim and I have both used this dollmaker to make our own Star Trek characters. I even used the game to create a Star Wars inspired character.
I even used this dollmaker to make Firefly’s River Tam, as I’ve posted on this blog. If you want to make male characters, there’s a separate dollmaker for that. I used that one to create Clark Kent from Smallville.
This one works as your typical dollmaker, with you picking various hairstyles, clothes and other features for your character. Unfortunately, one of those features is not different face shapes. You’re also limited on hairstyles as all you can choose is straight or wavy with no options for curly hair, unless you pick a bouffant. Like many dollmakers, you’re also limited to one body-type. You also have no option to put freckles on your character. Other than that, the game is very good at staying true to the Star Wars universe, with many options to make your character an alien. You also have a wide variety of clothes and weapons that fit the universe very well, such as lightsabers and blasters.
This game is fun, but needs work. I give it 5 out of 10; I hope to see a scene maker version soon. On another note, have you used this dollmaker to make characters or to just goof off? If so, feel free to share your creations in the comments.
I was working on a character profile for a character I based off of River and I couldn’t stop thinking about Firefly. So, I created someone who, in my opinion, is one of the most memorable characters in sci-fi using the dollmaker Sci-Fi Warrior by Azaleas Dolls. For those of you who haven’t seen Firefly, River is the genius sister of Simon Tam. She and her brother became fugitives after the Alliance (the evil government in Firefly) took her to what her family thought was a special school, but was actually a cover for a government project that conducted experiments on her. Simon risked his life and career to save her and they both stay on Serenity as fugitives. The experience made her crazy as she speaks mostly in metaphors and may seem helpless, but can be quite deadly when the situation calls for it. So don’t underestimate this girl or you will regret it. Unfortunately, Firefly got canceled after its first season but there are still movies and comic books to help you get your fix. There’s also a game in the works called Firefly Online, but it’s been in development hell. So I doubt that it will be released soon, if at all. In all honesty, I think the game’s canceled which, as a browncoat, I find a real shame.
A while back, I reviewed Cafe 0 which is still one of my favorite visual novels due to its Twilight Zone feel. I also recreated all three versions of the main character, Marin Umino, as best as I could using the Azaleas Dolls game (Snow Queen Scene Maker), which you can check out for yourself on Azaleasdolls.com. Despite the premise of Marin being a ghost who relives the past seven days of her life, the game is more tragic than it is scary. For those of you who haven’t played it yet, be sure to check out the game on roseverte.com and be warned that there are major spoilers in what I’m about to say.
To me, what makes the game tragic is Marin and the characters that surround her. To an outsider, it seems she has the perfect life. Marin’s the most popular girl in school, she has a nice apartment, she’s the swimming team’s ace, dating the most popular boy in school, boys want her and girls want to be her. However, just because she’s admired doesn’t mean anyone loves her. Marin’s best friend, Ami, is only hanging out with her because they’re both popular. Ami has no issue with stabbing Marin in the back if she benefits. Marin’s boyfriend, Tooru, is only dating her to further his own ends and blackmailed Shou, her doctor who is also Marin’s secret boyfriend, into making Marin date him. As for Shou, he’s an adult and Marin is a teenage girl. So the fact that he’s involved with her in private means he’s basically committing statutory rape and also prostituting his girlfriend to protect his own career because Tooru made it clear that he will expose Marin and Shou together if Shou doesn’t make Marin date Tooru. Keep in mind that Marin doesn’t even want to date him and is only doing whatever Tooru wants to make Shou happy. Really think about that for a minute. To anyone asking, “where’s her parents in all this?” They’re off in who knows where and leave their kid to fend for herself without even a pet for company. Even Marin wonders if she’s an unwanted child. So this girl had no genuine love in her life. Just people who took advantage of her and used her for their own ends. Marin dies unloved and no one mourns her death. I’ll admit, I’ve been used myself and I have trouble telling who my real friends are, but the worst that I ever happened to me was that I got called out on the internet, or I had a pool installed and people I’ve never even talked to suddenly wanted to be my friend. Even if I was used to such an extent I know that, through it all, I’ll always have my mother and I also have pets that love me unconditionally. I can’t imagine what it’s like to be in Marin’s shoes. I’ll admit, usually, I hate the popular kid is sad trope, like how Smallville portrays Lana Lang, but here it works. Marin is Lana if the writers of Smallville actually took the time to write her better.
