Human Enough (Sci fi/Fantasy)

#1 Post by Mink » Fri Dec 30, 2011 11:13 pm

So I really wanted to do a short project. Giving myself a deadline to write this probably helped, and I managed to finish writing it without it spiraling about of control and getting freakishly long.

Anyway, Human Enough is a short VN about a robot that wants to be human, maybe. Short, sweet, and to the point for fun project. There are three endings in total, which should be easy to get.

Image

Current Statistics:
The game contains 435 screens of dialogue.
These screens contain a total of 3,028 words,
for an average of 7.0 words per screen.
The game contains 2 menus.

Characters:
  • Robot
    Image
  • An unnecessarily creepy-looking robot that wants to be human, kind of.
  • Sounds like James Woods as Owlman from Crisis on Two Earths

    Divea
    Image
  • A coyote girl who asked for a more human appearance to sneak around houses better; she doesn't seem to consider wearing clothes to do this. Is probably smarter than she generally lets on.
  • Sounds like Kimberly Freeman (of Oneeyed Doll) singing Be My Friend

    Nana
    Image
  • A forest fairy that grants wishes, but only one per person/creature. She attempts to talk in large, flashy ways, but it doesn't really suit her.
  • Sounds like <3 Mary Elizabeth McGlynn <3

Staff People:

Writing/Programming: Mink

CG/Sprite Art: Maltagliati (Their art can be viewed here and devblog here.)

Music: Most likely Jamendo

Just to be clear:

*While Divea doesn't wear clothes, all lady parts are obscured. And there are no sexy scenes, at all.

**There is no romance, either. Not really.

Thanks, and yes, the art *is* adorable. Contrary to how I probably sound, I do like my share of cute things (I just get annoyed when something is only ZOMG CUTE with no actual substance to it. I'm looking at YOU, Lucky Star). Considering this is meant to be pretty light-hearted discounting some things Divea says or implies, I thought the style would really suit it. And I hope my writing doesn't disappoint. D:

Also, may I mention that while Robot sounds like Owlman, he lacks the psycho/sociopathy. Speaking of, here:
-Owlman VS Batman
-Be My Friend by One-eyed Doll
-Hell Frozen Rain sung by <3 Mary Elizabeth McGlynn <3

Lucky Star...I didn't mind the visuals, though I never stopped loving Tsukasa. ^^

I actually like the simplistic art (...even if everyone looks like 10-yr-olds despite being teenagers), I just wished it had, you know, things happen.

Anyway, Lint stats are updated. Divea's origins are slightly rewritten, but doing so enables me to fit in some Norse mythology should I make a sequel or something, so there's a plus. The first post has also been updated with a panda censor (if you click it, it links to the creator's site).

Also, Malt has gotten a few sketches done, so here's on of Divea:

Yes, there's more to her than that. Consider this a preview. And I was right: Divea's adorable in that style. <3

Divea sprites are done~ See:

Image

^This image tells you everything you need to know about her.

Also, to make this post a bit more...substantial, here's a fun fact: Divea was originally designed to be legitimately naked, but I thought it'd be more immature funnier if there's something conveniently covering her lady parts* and decided to go with this. It's also where her name comes from. And it's mentioned in-game. No, it's not very subtle.

*Her tail covers her OTHER lady parts

First post is updated with a pic for Robot~ Should be it for the sprites, but I've been working on NaNo for the past month, so...yeah.

Considering it's so short, I'm thinking of adding more to it and to make the three endings less easy to get. The sprite amount should stay the same even if I do that, though; the focus is really meant to be just these 3 characters, and I kind of want to give Nana a bigger part.
