Hopefully I'm posting in the right forum with this. It's not too far into production, and we're still working out all the details of everything, so I figured it'd be better fit for this forum than the actual WIP forum? If it's wrong or if I don't fit the qualifications for posting I apologize! This is only my second post on this site overall, the first being years ago on an account I've forgotten everything about, including url, so please forgive any awkwardness or mistakes!
My name's Ren, and I'm here to talk about a visual novel I'm working on with my friend Amelia. She doesn't have an account here, though. This is a visual novel using characters we've had for nearly seven years now, based on a long-abandoned roleplay of ours. Amelia is doing the writing of the novel, while I'm the artist. Although it's a bit of a silly plotline at times, due to it being from our embarrassing teen days, we have fixed it up plenty and we hope to let others enjoy our characters, too!
As of writing this, I only have some of Calvin and Isamu's sprites near completion. Topaz, and Kira's will come soon! Place holding them are images I drew a long time ago.In an alternate world of sorts, the world is run strictly by a government with an authority over most everything. However, beyond the government is an even higher power known only as "The Agency." The Agency is a criminal organization of an unknown origin. Its job is essentially to kidnap people, young children, and force them into a life of an "Agent." An Agent is a person genetically fused with the DNA of something else to give them different abilities. There are several different groups of these altered people, and each differs in its number of agents. Some are fused with dolls or inanimate objects, or simply live creatures.
Years ago, three children were stolen from their homes and forced into a group specified around animals. Their names were Isamu Kiyaku, Calvin Evans, and Topaz Clense.
Calvin was fused with a cat, giving him flexibility, agility and claws. He's the brains.
Topaz was fused with a bear, giving her brute strength, swiftness, and a big appetite. She's the brawl.
Isamu was fused with a chameleon, giving him invisibility and stealth. He's the deadliest member of the entire organization, and the "Animal Agency" is named after him to be the "Kiyaku Agency," instead.
Working under cover, the three of them solve anything from small crimes and mysteries, to going on full missions. Then, one day, they meet a girl by coincidence named Kira Itzumi. Somehow, after the accidental reveal of their mutant identities, she gets wrapped up in their biggest mission yet - going to an ancient temple to retrieve an artifact. From there, it's almost as if she becomes part of the group...
Unfortunately, I don't have 100% information on how the visual novel be worked out. It will, though, be ADV and have original content pretty much in all the media it uses. I'm sorry if this is too short, I'm not 100% sure what to add ;v; I will however update the story with more information soon!
