This is a standard guy pursues girl/girls visual novel rated either 13+ or higher depending on a group decision. The goal as I said is professional length, at least six endings but I like deciding as I go to match the feel of the story. ( The five endings are for each female and then the one for a possible bad/nothing ending that I know I will have but not sure what. The length again I like to decide as I go because I feel setting boundries limits creativity even if you know you can break them because while writing you can feel that they are there. As for the setting it might be easier to put in a introduction to the scenery thing I wrote and highlight key spots that contain descriptions. Note this is a complete rough draft that has yet to be edited. The town is in a valley surrounded by mountains but on the other side is the sea. The story will spend some time there and most in the city, the rest is one shot spots like a hot springs or something alone those lines. Now for the hardest part theme... I guess you could say that might be closeest for what my goal for this game is. My goal is to create something that can truely come alive and take hold of people's hearts like my favorite visual novel Ef ~ The First Tale. I want to create something where the player will fall truely in love with the a character like the love of Romeo and Juliet, deep and pure. MY goal is to take a dream and make it come true. If there is anything else you want to know just request it.
The boy's dormitories are at the bottom of the right side of Matsu Hill, which is the highest point within the valley. As I jog up, more and more of the city begins to appear starting at the top of the clock tower in the middle of town, the sun glinting off the glass cover of the clock and sending the like scattering making it look like a star. As I continue to run my breath gets louder and louder in my ears, but not filling the empty silence of the morning. The cool air feels nice on my face as the sun begins to warm the right side of my body while my left side is still in shadows. My feet finally find a rhythm with my breathing and my breath quiets slightly as I continue to run the hill seemingly to continue rolling and rolling forever without end. Finally I stop and place my hands on my knees, trying to remain standing. Looking as the town I can now see the school over on the far side, standing out with its older design compared to most of the more modern buildings around it. The school had been remodeled but only on the inside and the outside was left as it was when it was built about fifty years back. Next to the school I could see the last remaining buildings of the old school that had been built about a hundred years ago, according to the school principal. I don't know why I remember that, for some reason or another it stuck. As my legs continue to move they bring me over the crest of the hill, it feels like I am falling, my pace quickens and the wind begins to make sounds in my ear, whistling a tune as I start to run again. The girl's dormitory bounces around in my vision as I move from foot to foot and in an attempt to steady myself I stick out my arms. I feel like I'm flying, images in my head begin to appear of when I was young and with some friends in a park running around with our arms out and making airplane noises, running around till we were tired and then we would sit in the shade. Suddenly I realize my eyes are closed, opening them I see the edge of the hill approaching fast. I attempt to lean back but my legs continue to move even as I command them not to. I hit the rail and flip, the sun glinting as I glance it from behind my shoe. Then I hit the ground.
I bounce a few times still with my feet downhill, then the gravity and momentum grip me again and I begin to roll in a diagonal sweeping motion across the hill. I try to stop myself but my lungs feel empty and I am gasping for air, the wheezing and whipping of blades of grass, making my head spin even more. Finally the curve becomes to shallow and I stop face down, nose pressed against the dirt. As I lay there the sun begins to heat my back again, pushing the shadows away from lower down on the hill. I press my hands down into the dew covered grass and roll onto my back coughing a little. Sitting up is even more of a challenge but I finally make it, holding onto my knees so that I don't fall backwards. As I try to reorient myself my head keeps flashing between the sunrise and blackness as the blood rushes back into my head, and finally my vision clears completely. I try standing up and as for a bit of stumbling and swaying everything checks out. As I make my way up the hill I turn one more time to face the town and press my hands together, in a form that you pray with. It was something my dad showed me how to do long ago, if you can completely still your body you can feel your blood pulsing through your hands, then your arms, and then through your whole body with one constant throb over and over. It always helped me relax and eventually became a habit I do whenever I feel like a fool, or tired, or just nervous.
I wait for ten seconds and then let my hands drop to my sides, I can still feel the pulse but it is fading and my breathing becomes out of beat with my heart again. Spinning around I plant my feet into the earth and shove off, sprinting back to the road, and jumping over the guard rail. Looking back up to the top of the hill I see I hadn't actually rolled that far and the only reason I was really disoriented was the from hitting the ground so hard. Not wanting to risk that again I decide to walk the rest of the way down hill, taking longer but being able to calm down, I guess I still must be a bit shaken from the ordeal. After about five minutes I reach the base of the hill and the girl's dorms. The girl's dorms are a copy of the boy's , the architects even used the same blueprint. The only differences are the flowers in the flower beds and the plaque in front of the building that reads Girl's Dormitory. Sun is just beginning to reflect off the black metal gate at the entrance but still there were no signs of anyone being up. Alone as usual eh? I start jogging again the muscles tightening up in my legs for a second and then relaxing.
This town is really old, some parts seem like they are out of a fairy tale. A big clock tower, cheerful woods, brick streets. The outside of the town is filled with older Japanese architecture covered with moss and ivy. Simply looking at this part makes it look like it was caught in time. The center of town though is more modern, shops and stores, and even fast food like MckDanolds. I wonder if this is what other towns are like, or are they different with towering buildings and the same restaurants every block over and over and over.
