Project:PSYCHE [BxB] [18+] [Romance] [Drama] [Mystery]

#1 Post by toxxic » Fri Nov 15, 2019 7:47 am

Hello, people!
I've been reading through the Forums and it seemed like a nice idea to start a topic about my current game in progress to keep myself motivated.
Hopefully I'll be able to keep myself up and work my butt through this personal project that I'm thinking of.

I'm still working on the Title as I pull through, so it might change later but for now I'll be calling my project [Project: PSYCHE]
Alright, enough stuff! Hopefully you'll be more interested in the actual project than my blabbings.

Project Introduction :
* 18+ [BxB] Romance VN
* Top Main Character
* Lots of Interaction (Choices)
* Hoping to release by late 2021 ~ 2022, in English and Japanese at the same time.
* If my budget is ok, may fully voice it

Plot -
You will be guiding Kazuki, the newbie game designer as he joins a small team for a game development.
Yeah, joining a small game team may not sound super exciting for everyone, but it sure is for Kazuki.
The team that he is joining is a temporary team set up by the [Joybox Entertainment], one of the biggest game makers in the world.
The members gathered will be working on a demo production of 'whatever game' that they'd like to create for a short amount of the time, and will be evaluated by the said company.
As they will be fully paid, provided with awesome assets for them to use, along with an office, many youths have competed against each other to get a shot at getting in this team.
Not only that--- The one that will mainly be critiquing and evaluating the team's work will be [Cadenza], a genius game creator that Kazuki has been worshipping ever since he was little--.

Or so, that's what he's been told by his neighbor, as he woke up in the Hospital.
Though forgetful and clumsy, will Kazuki be able to get along with his teammates and pull through this big project?
Or will he be crossing some dangerous lines...?

System -
ADV
Messenger System with teammates
(Possibly) a Date system

Routes
At least 3 different Endings for each character

Alright, getting some rough drafts for Character designs done.
Aside from getting some more ideas for Kei's design, I've been doing full body designs for Kanon to make the standard of the project.
(As he's the fashionista of the group)
Still giving some thoughts on how to define the actual design as I'd like to make some cosplay-worth designs...
Image

Also brushed up the rough scenario outlines for the Demo Play of the Game. (Common route)
Maybe having too much choices in a short amount of the time will make the user experience dull, but I personally love having conversations with characters.
...Will see if I'll be removing some scenes later on.

Thank you for the comment!
Hopefully I'll finish designing the final drafts of the characters by December!


On the other hand, seriously considering adding a mystery / suspense elements to the whole storyline.
Though I like the idea, maybe the story will turn too dark?

That will be really cool! Personally I'm a total sucker for mystery stories xD But anything goes!

Alright! Got some new rough designs done for Rei and Hayato!

Rei Roughs
Image
Will have to work on his casuals and work clothes (alt). It's hard to give off a reserved, chic vibes without looking too rich or masculine.

Hayato Roughs
Image
Still Playing around with his hair, but trying to make him look different at work.

Still contemplating on how to add some more drama into the plot as I'm toying around with the world setting a bit more.

Oops! Oh gosh, I wasn't really familiar with using Discord so I didn't know that I put a temporary channel link on the topic!
Thanks for telling me that, @foleso! XD;
Will definitely add the new permanent Discord link on the topic.
The new link is https://discord.gg/TeUnevV
Thanks!

Updated the thread as the setting has been renewed & fixed.
Everyone's names are now finalized!

Hayato's concept has undergone some change, and his designs will be refined as "Soma", the composer of the team.
Added a side character to act as MC's mentor!

[Finalized Names]

Rei -> Hijiri
Makoto -> Takuto
Kei -> Rindou
Hayato -> Soma
