Hi dudes, for a while now I have been trying to make my own VN, yes this is my first one, and so far, so good, I have never seen a VN in this style before, ye know, in a zombie apocalypse setting, and well, this could get interesting
Undead Chronicles is a Visual Novel in development. Made by only 1 guy (that's me, Yakkety), UC is set place in the present day in the fictional city of Karadam. The world is hit by the zombie apocalypse, a virus by the name of AtraMortis, also referred to as the ''Black Death'' virus has gone epidemic, you are the protagonist of the story, Akihoshi Yakumo, trying to survive in these dark times of mankind.
Often called Yak or Yakkeh by your close friends Meiya, Toshiro and Yuji, you now life in a massive mall called Fort New-Karadam, alongside hundreds of other survivors, most of them aren't fighters, just a handful of people are ''DeadZone Rangers'', these DeadZone Rangers are the soldiers against the living dead, people who have no combat experience and are just trying to rebuild their lives in these dark days are called ''DeadZone Civilians''. In your journey to survival you will meet friends, enemies (both undead AND alive humans), and you will find love (if you choose the right path, that is...)
The government initialized a DeadZone treaty on the entire planet, meaning that areas outside of safe havens are considered a, well, deadzone. There are few safe havens, of which Fort New-Karadam is one of them, the RBF (Royal Battle Force) was forged when the outbreak was starting to spread, they were to maintain law and order, to prevent more infections, but that didn't help, the virus spread like a fire from city to city, soon enough from country to country. The RBF initiated a ''Level Survivors'' categorization for DeadZone Rangers, for example, a ''Level 1 Survivalist'' is a rookie in survival, who has had very, VERY few experiences in combat, whilst a ''Level 5 Survivalist'' has exponential experiences in combat and all round survival, with thousands of confirmed undead kills. The highest rank you can get is the ''DeadZone Legend'' status, which you receive when you reach Level 10 Survivalist. This system has no real use, it is just to show people how experienced (or dangerous) one another is.
Yakumo does not care about this system, all he wants is peace for his friends and little brother. He is already called ''The people's hero'' for his outstanding actions, such as looting for supplies for the Fort, helping and rescuing strangers, and caring for the people. He is not a self-centered ego-maniac who only thinks about killing, he shows love and compassion for his fellow man, and no DeadZone Survivalist system can tell him otherwise.
There are 4 (or 5 >.>) paths you can choose from, 3 paths are the girl routes and they all will have their own multiple endings, mostly bad endings because well, it's a zombie apocalypse game, you cant always safe your beloved ones with the choices you make ;P
The last one (or 2 >.> hey you never know...) are for the route where you don't choose a girl, but if I go into more details about this, then I'd spoil the game, or even future sequels
Euhm, that's not all, there's still a shitload of other characters that I need to finish, these one's are the completed ones...
80% complete for the demo...Scripting:
30% complete for the demo...Characters:
2% (Oh there will be a shitload of CG's, at least, I hope so...)Backgrounds:
Here's my blog which I will keep updated from time to time: http://yakkety-undeadchronicles.blogspot.com/
So yeah, this is Undead Chronicles, but I have more plans for the future, this game will be the story of Yakumo, but I already have ideas for sequels and prequels, how's about Undead Chronicles; Dark Days Rising? That game will be a prequel, telling the story through the eyes of a yet to be named scientist who had major influences in the zombie outbreak... I also have ideas for a sequel which I will not go in further details about, I don't want to spoil stuff ;3
The game is 16+ because of gore and violence, and bad language, I don't know it for sure yet but it will most likely
also be 18+ if I decide to throw in some ''event scenes'' in it, and then I'll ask one of the mods to move this thread to the Hentai games forum, but for now, it's sex-free...
What I'm aiming at is about 100-300k words for the game, and the demo should contain about 15k words...
So guys, what ye think...? Good idea, bad idea, love it, hate it, sounds appealing, or not...?
