The Unlucky Fellow [WIP] IN HIATUS

#1 Post by MJDAlleria » Mon Dec 12, 2011 6:53 am

Independent Project #01 (2011-present)

Game Title: The Unlucky Fellow
Alternate Title: Lucky
Genre(s): Horror, Romance, Friendship
Artist & Author: MJD
Inspiration: Lucky by MRAZ

Engine: Ren'Py

GAMEPLAY:

Depending on how you proceed into the story (the choices you make even the very little ones) and which girl you try to capture will result into 3 different ends for each character to be accurate. Originally the main characters had been given 6-7 endings, however, since I’m a beginner I decided to lessen the work load at least for a bit. Lazy—I know that...

Total of 15 endings; 4 good, 4 neutral, 4 bad & 3 secret ends, however, may result into just 14 if Livia’s Bad Ending isn’t approved, it shall be omitted. The game can be goal to conquest one of the two girls. Befriend the two guys or even try to match make them with one of the girls.

Total number of Endings: 8 (originally intended)
Total number of Endings: 15++

Note: This originally was play that I wrote for a midterm/final project in school, since I couldn't really participate due feeling ill I made the script by accident. Somehow it ended up being used and the play went on nicely but most parts didn't go as I thought so I decided to think of recreating the story once again with the use of Ren'Py. This is going to be hard, since I'm still a beginner and my art isn't that great.

SUMMARIAZED:
            • Harkin "may" have a bad time.
PROGRESS:
            • Plot [ 100% ]
              Script [ 38.3% ]

I hope you enjoy making your visual novel, and that people like it.

Poorly done hand-drawn art is still poorly done art. Be a Poser (or better yet, use DAZ Studio 3D) - dare to be different.

Thanks fleet and tigersmurf, but for some reason I feel that no one would be interested in my Visual Novel....

I say don't worry about it, there a lot of people who prefer commenting on complete works. :D

That being said, you could generate a lot more interest with pictures, more descriptions, or even a logo. Generally, the more information you present, the more people will be interested. I'm sure you'll get more people commenting as you add more to this :D

Wish you the best of luck~ ^^

Oh it's Tag-. Hello.

Posting character sketches and screen shots will usually generate more comments. Don't get discouraged, at least you didn't get a lot of negative comments.

Managed to put some of my work samples early ^^

Though, I need to put more emotion into Harkin. He's a bit too stoic-looking

Oooh, there we go, pretty pictures xD

I'm happy you put up concept sketches and such as well. I'm really liking how Harkin turned out, and he's very tall xD I'm quite curious as to what led Livia to practically stab a mechanical pencil at him during their first meeting, but I'll wait for that of course :D

Thanks Tag-

Are those what the sketches I made called? (never knew)

Hmm... still haven't even got to that part of the script ^^"
Oh no I noticed Connor looks way too side character-ish now! I need to work on their profiles faster!

I love your sketches! And your coloring as well. :) Don't say you're not that good of an artist, your drawings are beautiful.

Harkin reminds me of a friend I had in high school. He had horrible luck and also was blonde :P

Thanks, but really compared to some people I know. I'm not that good.

Oh? That's interesting, but though this guy will have much suffering ahead of him ^^"
