Since Y;N is almost done, I'll introduce you to my next project: Project - reader. Reader - project. *I'm sure u will get along very good*. This time I'll work on my project in "public" via this wip-forum. I haven't done this before and I totally want to know what it's like to let people participating in a work right from the very start. So, I hope you will enjoy it *please have a seat^^
Ok, here we go. First, I'd love to give you some quick facts about this project, called:
Crime • Scene"It may seem strange to hear this from a policeman, but my aim is to find a way so that people can die again."
17 year ago the "Tower of Babel" appeared. After this incident the inhabitants of Old Saint Harbor lost their ability to die naturally. Because of this "illness" (Athanasios) the town was quarantined and "The Golden Rules" were determined by the government.
What awaits you? What is my plan?
You will play as different characters.
You will follow their daily life (and their past) and you will follow them on their journey to find the truth behind the "Tower of Babel" and "Athanasios".
You will be confronted with different situations in which you can decide what you want to do (sometimes there won't be a "right" choice).
Depending on these decisions etc. there will be multiple endings.
The game will go on, no matter what you will choose or do.
The hero of this story. A young policemen facing a cruel world. He is desperately trying to follow the footsteps of his deceased father to find a cure.
Taka's assistant. A young woman caught between justice and loyalty.
Shiratori, Fukomo ("Shira")
Being jailed at the police station this loner is forced to work for his prison guards.
Knowledge means everything to her. She doesn't care about anything else or anybody else until she suddenly has to.
Like a bird in a cage: This young woman was never supposed to see the light.
etc. ... there are more ... ^^ (but you won't be playing each person from the cast^^)
I keep the information short on purpose because I'm interested in your thoughts.
What do you expect from this game after reading this post?
Do you like the concept idea?
Does it sound interesting to you?
When you're done reading, are there any questions which come to your mind? Something you want this game and its story to answer?
Do you like the art style so far?
There are no "wrong" answers. (and of course: You don't have to answer everything.^^)I would be glad to hear your thoughts about this project so far.
- The art style will differ from Y;N: Why? - There is no real reason. I think it's just more fun to try out something new^^
- Will there be gameplay elements like in Y;N?: - I don't know this yet. I'll find out once I have written down the whole story. Right know there are fragments of important parts, but I need to fill the gaps first to tell you more about the gameplay^^
- How long will it take you to finish this game?: - Well, C•S is a bigger project than Y;N, so it will take it's time. Probably more than 6 months since this time I can't work on it all day long. But I will try my very best^^
- Will it be a free game?: - I guess: Yes. Right now there is no real reason why not. So, it will probably be for free. *another reason why it will take time to finish this^^
