Tsundere-sama [GxB][Romance, Otome, Comedy, Free]

#1 Post by hiko27 » Wed Oct 07, 2015 1:50 am

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!
Planned features:
  • Pretty art
  • A tsun/dere gauge system
  • You can either be a typical Type A/B tsundere, or be a mixture of tsun and kuu/hime/dandere. You can only be tsundere. The hime/kuu/dan will be used for a different game instead.
  • Five guys with their own preferences of tsun combinations
  • Slice-of-life/Non-romance plots or side stories
  • Music ofc
  • FREEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
  • Tons of stuttering and blushing, be warned. Especially for what I call the tsun-squared route (aka tsun MC and tsun love interest)
Aaaaand I think that's it.
Characters (so far):
Image
Protagonist (default name yet to be determined)
side chara-default-preview.png
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 have to do:
Planning Stage
  • Gameplay (system, how the game will work, features, etc): 80%
  • Characters (personalities, backgrounds, likes/dislikes, etc): 40%
  • Story planning (settings, others depending on how the game will play out): 25%
Outline Stage
  • Guy 1: 10%
  • Guy 2: 10%
  • Guy 3: 10%
  • Guy 4: 10%
  • Guy 5: 10%

Updates: Bloop. That was one lame on-the-spot premise (yes, I actually wrote that premise on the spot). This was an idea I had a few weeks ago when I was trying to come up with a short (?????? this is me we're talking about) game that I'll be doing ALL ON MY OWN. That's right. I have another thread on here, but that one's going to be worked on with more than just one person. Plus, this one will be free. I was hoping to just get a game out there, get the feel of how the whole game-making process will be but on a smaller scale. I opted to create a thread for it because I just needed a place where I can low-key get a few opinions on it, as well as a place to keep organized. As I mentioned, I'll be working on this game by myself, so obviously since I'm too freaking busy and am such a procrastinator, this won't be released anytime soon. But! I'm slowly working on ideas for the game in my head. That's better than nothing. I'm not gonna promote this game that much, think of it as a practice game for me. Less pressure than when I'm working on otoge-Real!

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. What type of tsundere would you prefer? Describe or give an example if you can (include the name/series in case I don't know it). Are you fine with tsunderes who get violent, or just tsun?
2. Preference on platform: PC or mobile?
3. Comment on characters so far? Any Mary Sue/Marty Stu's? Let me know.
4. Any questions about the game so far? Having questions thrown at me about characters and the gameplay would help me look at every part of the game, and see if there are any holes in them (I also enjoy talking about and answering questions about the game lol).

Best of luck. You've got your work cut out for you (but you'll probably never be bored).

Too lazy to update the first post so I'll just post it.
MC-1.png
The palette isn't definite yet, still trying to figure out what colors I want here. I'll hopefully be able to finish this tonight or something. I have commissions to do as well.

But aside from a somewhat finished lineart for the MC's sprite, I have thought of another feature to make the game more fun. Pretty much, at the beginning, you, as the MC, will run into certain situations on your first day of school and your choices for those situations will determine your beginning tsun/dere levels.

Opinions about what we have so far are pretty much appreciated.

That was one lame on-the-spot premise
No, it really wasn't XD
"...But it's not like you're doing it just for him!"
Oh gahd /wheeze/ You got me. I can *hear* the tsun.

I would play the -bleep- out of this. :D
will run into certain situations on your first day of school and your choices for those situations will determine your beginning tsun/dere levels
I love this idea XD I will have a ridiculous time tweaking my levels until they are perfect to get Guy #4. (I've decided Guy #4 is the best)
I also know the typical tsundere has twintails, but in my head, I always thought of ojou-sama appearance types to be typical tsundere in shoujo.
*Fake offence* How dare you???
I actually went to look up how wrong you were about "typical tsundere (having) twintails"... T-T Buuuut you're right. Still. Oujo-sama appearances rule!
(Inu X Boku SS) Ririchiyo-sama is the One True Tsundere! (not for reals but she's my fav)


I'm curious as to how you'll present dialogue choices to players. Does the player see the choices as the MC would? Like does: "I love you" turn into "I don't hate you." with serious blushing? XD

...Anyway...
Yaaay :D Free, (not-short!) game with adorable art all wrapped in tsundere? Perfect.
I love your MC sprite. Good luck with this! I await it most happily (what).

Haha, why thank you. I thought my premise was a little too lame since it took me 30 seconds to write it up. Lol, if somebody made a game like this as well, I'd play the -bleep- out of it as well. Hahaha, lucky Guy #4, no name but already someone likes him. Ah, well, what I had in mind is that you need to be at a certain tsun/dere level come a certain point of the guy's route. I'm not sure yet since I haven't exactly figured out how I want this part to play out.

Lol, glad to know I was right. But yeah, ojou-samas are the best! Haha, sadly, I haven't watched that but I do know that the main girl is a super tsundere. Idk how I found out. Thank you! I'm actually working on the sprite right now so hopefully it'll look amazing and I'll be able to present something decent at least. Thanks for the support and all the funny comments xD

Edit: just realized that I didn't answer your question about the dialogue. The player will be given a set of choices on what to say/do, and each choice has a certain tsun/dere requirement to be able to pick it. So if you were mega super tsundere, you can't pick "Confess your love honestly" if given the choice, but that's just an example of how the system would go. But yes, some choices might be like that as well where if you played it a second time with different levels of tsun/dere, the choice you had during your first play through might change into a different one. And yes, serious blushing comes with being a tsundere so ofc it'll have that.

I told myself I'll post at least once a week, if possible once a day, so here's my post for the day.
MC-palette.png
I'm stuck on what to use for the color of the uniform, and her hair color. The typical ojou-sama I had in mind had black hair, and ofc, the uniform would be black but I'm not so sure... Opinions would be great. Also, these aren't done yet (obviously) so you can ignore the quality and the shading. I'm trying to figure out how I wanna do that still.

Oh yeah... She's supposed to have a petticoat underneath her dress but that'll have to wait until later.

I would say if you want the pink hair, go with either a more red or a more greenish uniform. If you want to keep the black hair, then I would go with a blueish uniform or keep with the black uniform. A red uniform would also work with the black hair... but this is really just what I would do, haha. ^_^;

The premise of this game looks like it could be fun. :D

The green would probably clash with the hair since the hair has bits of red in it. And idk why but I read red as orange >.> But yeah, I forgot there are also red uniforms out there, thanks for the suggestion! I'll probably try and see if red would look better with the black hair.

Thank you! Glad to hear that.

I don't usually--scratch that, I don't ever post in the ideas forum, but I'll make an exception for this game owo

Coming from a real-life tsundere, I can't tell you how excited I am to see a game like this! Honestly, I agree with the ojou-sama appearance; I'll never understand why twintails are the stereotypical tsun hairstyle. Besides, haughtiness just kind of fits a tsundere, at least it does in my opinion. As for the appearance of the main character, I prefer the black hair and black dress, but I think the bright blue eyes are a little off putting. I would pair black hair with amethyst or dark brown eyes. For blonde hair, green eyes with a peach-coloured dress. Blonde hair with pink eyes would also work with a vermillion dress too.

You're welcome to disregard all my advice though, I'm in no way a fashion/colour expert orz

Why thank you! I myself am excited for the game, hopefully I deliver and more. I think the twintail is more for the males while for women/otome, it's more of the ojou-sama. Oh, the light blue isn't the definite shade I was hoping for the end result, but I do like your suggestions! Amethyst would be really nice (I'm a sucker for anything around the violet/red range). GASP. VERMILLION. I didn't think of that, would definitely try that out.

Lol, I'm actually grateful for the suggestions so thank you.

Hell yes, I managed to finish the sprite. I told myself I was going to expand on the game's system as well as start thinking up of guys but this thing was calling me. May or may not be the one in the game (I feel as if there's too much going on) but those are just simple edits I can do later on.

Up next: Create the five guys and flesh them out.

I'm late to the party, but this is a great idea, and I'm very much looking forward to it.

The green uniform is an interesting touch, but I like it. It draws attention straight to her eyes (which are stunning, by the way).
