Tutturu!!!

HikkiPanda here! When I was a kid, I always love to play 'Princess Maker' games. It's sad that we only have 'Princess Maker 2' translated :( (and it's not even an official release >.>). So I'm thinking about making a similar game, since I don't see any chance for 'Princess Maker' 3 or 4 to get translated, and the fan's translation for 'Princess Maker 5' will still take a long while to finish.

There is not much to see here for now, but hopefully the thread will have more info as I make more progress.

Setting:
A combination of Three Kingdoms Period, Sengoku Era, and Fantasy settings

Story:
Ryohoku Academy (name subject to change) is a prestigious school that only accept nobles and students with exceptional qualities. As a daughter of a middle class family, Kana never expect to get an invitation to attend such a prestigious school. but as the war rages the entire land, her school life won't be a peaceful one ...

Features (Everything is subject to change XD):
- 6 years of gameplay (in game time off course, not real life XD). Player start the game at age 12 and finish it at age 18
- 4 (ideally it should be 5) classes to take
- 4 boys and 3 girls to date (ideally I want at least 1 more girl, around 17 years old probably, I want to pair her with Kenshiro and give her the role of a reliable onee-san for the player :P)
- Growing Up, Kana and her friends will change their appearance every 2 years (yeah, it will be like a sudden growth spurt lol).
- Lover Ending and Best Friend Ending for each characters, depends on your actions, you can have more than one best friends, but only one lover allowed :P
- Kingdom Ending, whether your kingdom survive the war and stuff.
- Adventure, a simple one though ..
- City Management, at age 14 or older, you can influence the direction of the city development.
- Debate, if someone disagrees with your plan, challenge them to a debate to proof that they're wrong
- Duel, sometimes no matter how hard you try, words just can't get through some people's thick skull.
- War, this game is set in a kingdom where war rage on .. so naturally there will be a war somewhere in the middle of the game. It definitely won't be like those Turn Based Strategy games though ... something more simple but still fun hopefully ^^;

Features that are may/may not be implemented: (Everything is subject to change XD)
- Glorious Commander Duel, just like that awesome battle when Liu Bei, Guan Yu, and Zhang Fei fights Lu Bu.
- Mount, Commander Duel won't be that glorious if everyone is on foot ...
- Diplomacy, good allies can save your city from tragic ends

Here is some of the character sketches, some designs aren't final yet. Please let me know what you think ^^

Izurumi Kana

Here are the available boys and girls

His loves for freedom and the tendecy to break the rules, often put him head-on with the other members of bureaucracy.
Image

He scores multiple victories during his first battle, a true prodigy at this time of war. Unfortunately, as a military man through and through, many people find him hard to deal with. Even in this kingdom that he seek to protect, he still has more enemies than friends.

Re: Are the character sketches good enough? Yes.

It appears that English is not your primary language. I would suggest that you have someone who is a native English speaker review the dialog before you produce your final version.

Very respectfully,
fleet

Hmm well to be honest they don't look like guys at all, I thought they were girls or little boys at first. If the game is going to be all in chibi-style, I could see how they'd look like girls. I'd suggest studying what guys look like first- their broad shoulders, jawlines, eyebrow shapes, and so on. Then you'll be able to make some really hot guys :)

The one on the left is passable as a guy. Unless the other one is a trap, it's definately a girl.

I wouldn't worry too much about your guys looking like girls. A lot of anime guys look like chicks XD
It's like a must in every anime show, manga or video game for their to be a guy who looks like a girl.

DEIDARAAA xDD
*ahem*
I actually thought that they were both guys the moment that I looked at them. I guess I'm just used to seeing girlyish anime guys xD Anyway, I really like your art style and the story sounds good. Secretly, I rather like princesses.. >_>

I thought Deidara was a girl and that the translator just had bad english in the manga translations...
*hides in corner*

I'm looking forward to more update on what the game is going to be like ;)

Honestly, I agree with Remnant. Maybe it's all my anime/manga/japanese-styled art and music and such affecting my brainmeats.

The one on the right could be said to be a girl that's supposed to be a bit boyish, but I at least saw them both and immediately thought guy.

I like princesses too. I played the heck out of Princess Debut. It is my (now not so) secret shame.

Me too. I'm not afraid to admit that I, a 16 year old, played Princess Debut and loved it.

*Raises hands and admits.*
I only played for three routes though, got that green haired guy first then the secret character then that black haired guy who always gets lost. XD

Anyway, I'll be looking forward to this, and I'm also one of the people who actually thought that both of them were guys. XD

I immediately thought the one on the left was a boy, but was unsure of the one on the right. He/She could go either way. And yes, anime (or Japan) seems to love making guys that look like girls.
Image
Look out! It's a trap!

And speaking of guilty pleasures I'm a 28 year old man who was an infantry Marine for heaven's sake, and I love the Princess Maker series. Got to balance out all that excessive manliness some how, right? :lol:

to tell you the truth, while i love the manly guys, I pretty much adore the trap and girly guys(especially in Ai ore, who wouldn't love traps and gender benders?)

Damn out of topic, gomenchai.... (;_;)
