(Temporary name) Tsundere-sama
Genre: Romance, Reverse Harem, Comedy, Slice-of-life
Premise: Tsunderes are such a popular archetype in anime and manga, why not play as one? Play as the main character (name still yet to be decided) and tsun your way into guys' hearts, as well as friends! But be careful, some guys can only take so much tsun and would prefer more of the dere. Work on curbing your tsun and dere sides and win your guy's heart!
...But it's not like you're doing it just for him!
- Pretty art
- A tsun/dere gauge system (which gives you two routes for each guy: tsun, and dere route. Endings will most likely be the same except for interactions between LI and MC)
- A (hidden?) proactive/shy gauge where, when combined with tsun/dere, gives you many choices when it comes to interacting with the people around you, including the LIs.
- Five guys with their own preferences of tsun/dere combinations
- Slice-of-life/Non-romance plots or side stories
- Music ofc
FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!Amount of time and effort can't justify it being free, so will most likely be put on Kickstarter and sold.
- Dress-up game and stats.
- Tons of stuttering and blushing, be warned. Especially for what I call the tsun-squared route (aka tsun MC and tsun love interest)
Protagonist (default name yet to be determined) Kaoru
"Her name's Kaoru, because she smells nice. She has really thick, unkempt hair. So far, she's like the opposite of your character: wild, unreserved, and very loud. She'll be your future bestfriend in the game, and the reason why I made her the opposite of your character is because of the tsun/dere gauge I plan on using, she'll help you be more dere -- more open and unreserved like her."
Shit I've done:
-Gameplay detail pretty much nailed down
-MC's 1st/base sprite done
-Background outline written for each love interest
Shit I need to do:
-Finalize MC's personality traits and background
-Outline in-game timeline
-LEARN HOW TO SKETCH HOT GUYS

I'm going to be starting small. The guys haven't been decided yet, hence why I have Guy 1 and so on and so forth on here. This idea is still pretty much a super baby, but I'm hoping (fingers crossed) to get it done at least by the middle of next year since it'll be a short game.
Sidenote: I also know the typical tsundere has twintails, but in my head, I always though of ojou-sama appearance types to be typical tsundere in shoujo.
Edit: I might leave the title to just be Tsundere-sama cause it was surprisingly reblogged by an otome game news blog and yeah... It kind of stuck now. Or maybe I'll change it later on. Depends.
Question(s): (will add more as I get further into the development)
1. Opinions on mini-games?
2. Opinions on having a dress-up feature?
3. Suggestions? Comments? Any questions?
