Title: Dog Dazed (pun on Dog Days)
Genres: Romantic Comedy, Drama and a little bit of Fantasy
Cookie and Toffee explain to Mel that they are actually Cynanthropes- men who can transform into dogs (and vise-versa). They have transformed back into human shape to assist Mel in her time of grief... And maybe even help her find new love.
Melitsa Duleche (first name means "sweet" in Greek): 20 years old. Melitsa a modest girl who is easily embarrassed. She dreams of being a baker and is saving up money for culinary school. Despite liking baked goods, Melitsa can't stand things that are too sweet (such as divinity and hot chocolate) and prefers more savory pastries and bread.
Clyde (Cookie): 21 years old. Clyde is pure-bred Siberian Husky in dog form. He's often impatient and insecure when it comes to how others percieve him; but deep down he's really just a loyal puppy that needs reassurance. Clyde has a talent for making recipes out of anything and loves to bake cookies.
Todd (Toffee): 23 years old. Todd is a mutt in dog form, he resembles an Austrailan Shepherd. He has heterochromia- one green eye, one brown eye. Todd needs glasses in his human form due to poor vision. He loves to brew coffee and teas, often making his own blends. Despite his cool demeanor, he can be immature and sometimes doesn't control his temper very well when provoked.
Selene Duleche (first name means "moon" in Greek): 28 years old. Selene is Melitsa's older sister. She was once a famous model and has many high-profile contacts, one of which helped her open her cafe. She has a mysterious air about her. She fancies Clyde and isn't afraid to show him some physical (and unwanted) affection.
Charles: 22 years old. Melitsa's (ex-)boyfriend. He's very sauve, but on the inside he's selfish, lazy and money-obsessed. Melitsa knew him in High School and thought he was cool, so once they met again she asked him out. While he can be manipulative he's not very smart and handles serious situations like an angry teenage boy.
(There are currently 6 other minor characters, but I won't list them here due to spoilers)
Game progression plan:
- The game takes place over 5 weeks. There will be 2 "Acts": The First Act introduces the characters and setting to set up for the Second Act, which is centered on the guy players have the most points for.
- There are 5 endings planned, Good/bad endings for both guys at the end of Act 2 and a neutral ending. (If you get the neutral ending the game ends at the end of Act 1).
- What do you think of the obtainable guys (Clyde and Todd) and their designs?
- What about the main character, Melitsa? How is her design? Does she look too girly?
- Anything else you'd like to comment on/suggest.
