Simdate Complex (GxB)

Actual game art style may differ.

Ellie is obsessed with simdates and her 'friend' Macy is getting sick of it so she challenged
her to get a date with someone if she still wants to hang out with her.
O_O okay I know my story sucks, I'm not a writer, but that's not gonna stop me from making a visual novel/sim date *q*
I've been frustrated for years and wanted to make one >.< I've been stalking this forums since 2009

Characters (I'll update soon)

Image
Ellie
The protagonist, obsessed in Dating simulation games that she treated her real dates like on too, she also carries a journal around with the relationship status listen in it.

Image
Macy
An old friend of Ellie, they used to be best friends but she wasn't happy with just games and fantasies. She changed her image and started to flirt guys. She also started to avoid Ellie and made new 'friends'. But she still kinda likes Ellie ;)

Image
Reiniel
The jerk type, he acts nice at first, but then he started to criticize Ellie's clothing and kinda manipulative and bends things to his will, and that made Ellie turn into a completely different girl o_o;

Image
Mark
Your usual happy/normal type, he seems to act strange most of the time, like he's hiding something... Ellie wonders why he's not available during late afternoon. :o

Image
Austin
Your typical shy type, he doesn't like talking much so he kinda doesn't like Ellie at first but then he started to like her. He also had a lot of 'first times'.

What I'm planning
- Opening video
- Opening song (I already have one :D)
- 4 endings (2 normal, 1 bad/real/special, 1 secret)
- Animated cut scene for bad/real/special ending
- To be released in 2 languages (Tagalog and English)
- Give it away for free (in a con next year)


The song I did for the game (tagalog)

It looks interesting enough, for some reason I really like your drawings. :) I think the concept is really good but you may need to devolp it more in the long run. When it's done I'll definitely try and get it.

I like the art style already, so I think you should stick to it. It's cute and simple, which matches the story very well in my opinion. Also, the synopsis you have isn't half-bad, so now it's just up to you on how you write it.

Anyways, say hello to another stalker follower :)

Hmm, main character Ellie sounds like a combination of Keima from The World God Only Knows, and Nina from Real Rode.

Since you have a character who enjoys a specific genre -- in this case, Flash romance games -- I recommend reading up on genre savviness. Think about creative ways you can take this concept and mix it up a bit.

This is a really cute, clever concept. I love the idea of the protagonist literally carrying around a book of stats. Also, Mark, and his headphones. :D

I love the art! The style's really cute and lovely and super appropriate to the tone (as far as I can guess it), and the CGs look interesting.
