Invasion of the Panty Snatchers

#1 Post by PyTom » Wed Aug 01, 2007 9:16 am

Invasion of the Panty Snatchers is the name of a potential project demonstrating renpygame. It's also going to be a light ecchi arcade game with vn elements between the arcade scenes.

The (really bad) plot follows:

Earth has been invaded! Horrible aliens from the darkest reaches of the space have invaded earth! What will mankind do?

Thankfully, the invaders are tiny. Well, we assume they are, since noone has been able to capture the invaders... but with flying saucers only three feet around, how big can they be?

Also, the invaders are, to borrow a phrase, mostly harmless. As best as anyone can tell, they have no weapons on their UFOs, only a tiny little claw that can only lift a few ounces of weight. The invaders tend to use this mostly to steal garbage, presumably in order to turn it into clean energy by some sort of nefarious means.

Basically, mankind's reponse was to ignore the invaders and get on with life.

Until, one fine summer day, your lovely neighbor Jenny comes running to you, distraught. It seems the invaders have changed their MO... they've come to take her prize-winning collection of panties. You strap on your trusty mark 17 tennis ball cannon, and get ready to show then who's boss.


I'm strongly considering making this game, since it shouldn't be that hard. To do so, I'll need artists to supply the following assets.

VN-side:

Jenny character sprites - Emotions TBD.
Jenny showing off panties - Multiple Panty Variants TBD
Various domestic backgrounds (House rooms TBD)
(I may be able to just buy these off dlsite.)
Music.

Arcade-Side:

Jenny's backyard background.
UFO sprite.
Claw sprite (s).
Panty sprites - Many (20 or so) variants, and we'll use renpy/renpygame to recolor them.
Music.

So the question is, do we have any artists here that are crazy enough to collaborate with me on this?

About the "Jenny showing off panties sprite" Will she be naked with panties on!?

Will you include "breakout" as a arcade game? And will you make choices?
script is 85% done.
Title is now "Running through water"
and will hopefully stay that way.
Need a poem/lyric?
I'll write one for ya!

Whoa, the plot is pretty heavy (Dostoevsky go home). I'm volunteering for the music but would need some details (how many pieces, length, mood, loop/no loop, quality etc.). Any tentative release date to aim for? (Just for my own planning.)

I'm in.

Because the flourescent dream will finally be realized. :D

PM me the specifications of the art pieces once you've determined them.

I just have a very tiny willingness to collaborate with other artists, primarily because I really want to set the character design on this one.

edit: I'm thinking of a variant of the NT designs, but with flat colors (so it's easy to recolor within Ren'Py). (I am willing to put Gothloli Fashion Academy on hold for this, since it will essentially use the same design)

Kitty >>> No, I was thinking much more of her hiking up her skirt so she can show you her 1984 hanes-her-way misprint stripes, of which there are only 7 known to exist in the whole world.

She's serious about being a panty collector.

Allessio >>> Thanks.

DaFool >>> Thanks.

I'll email specs when I know them.

Yes! The fluorescent dreams will be reality! :P

If you need some kind of ryme or peotry on the panties, or perhaps a lyrics for a song about panties that alien pervs sing, PM me.

Well, I was about to volunteer to do some art, and ask what kind of timeframes you were looking at, but if DaFool really wants to do all of it... :P

Ah, I just had to grab at this opportunity :D (It will be hard for me to justify it in any other game)

PyTom, can you try to make the scenario at least 20K words? I figured since the average size of the Ren'Py game is getting bigger, the average playtime should be longer as well (aiming for an hour minimum, instead of what used to be 15 minutes).

I volunteer to uh... cheer you on, yeah ^.^. But I'm curious : what will the game be like?... pure VN or will there be some minigame or some special Ren'Py-made interface?

How about a Melty-Blood kinda balance between story and gameplay (well I never really played Melty-Blood, just saw glimpses of it).

You stole that whole story from Ichigo 100%, didn't you?

But ah well... at least it's funny (-:

Honestly, when I saw this, I was thinking *Is this for real?* just because it seems so bizarre :)

Think I'll follow monele's lead and cheer you on =) I'm also curious how this is going to turn out...

The goal was to make a minigame that demonstrated renpygame, not a huge story. But if someone wants to volunteer to flesh out the vn-interludes, by all means do so.

If artists want to collaborate, then this might be a good time to do so... better then on a more serious game.

I think we need to be very clear about the exact scope of the game, since it does influence the level of effort one is willing to put into this. Even if the plot was intentionally bad, it is still possible to make something that's so bad it's actually good. Combined with higher production values, it will actually be amusing to see that the producers were actually serious about this.

Please, please, please, I don't want something like The Question (not to intentionally criticize it, of course.). I would like this to be much more than a demonstration game. In fact, I don't want its intention to be a demonstration game at all. Better to have an approach similar to MagBou... create something with genuinely fun gameplay, not with the intention of just showing off python skills... then people would be begging for the source code (which in this case would be included already).

In other words, yes, why not make this a serious game?

(Jake or others >> if you want to collaborate, by all means... it's just that I would like to be selfish and hog the character designs for this project)
