so I thought... since It's so tiresome to draw people, thinking of more new unique faces...
I thought to make a novel WITHOUT people! just Mechas!
or rather, the Mechas are the people!
I was thinking maybe the protagonist used to be human, but woke up one day as a robot.
suddenly everybody is mecha. and Humans are but a myth.
This could be a mystery!
SO WHY NOT!
DATING SIM OF MECHAS!
THERE'S A DATING VN ABOUT BIRDS!
WHY NOT MECHAS?
SOMEONE TELL ME IT'S UNIQUE!
Some questions that can raise a plot are:
Where are the people?
What will happen then?
When does the story happen? Is it post apocalyptic?
How exactly do robots date?
Wow, everybody is AI. How does love happen?
Will there be battle/battle gameplay? (coz I can handle making screens for that, maybe a strategy game?)
What would be a great title?
Some limitations are:
Not everybody loves mecha
Limited face emotions, depending on the mecha... (lightens the load for the artist, though)
No boobs, just metal. Therefore no ecchi. (unless you guys fetish on sexy robots! eughh)
No sex (but that's ok. we're here for coolness)
I plan to work on this idea once I finally finish my thesis. (about next next month)
If anybody wants to help, feel free!
If I end up not thinking of a story, I can just upload sprites (in Creative Commons) for free , or with credit, just...
I want to see a novel like this. A novel with just mechas...
In the Distant Future, there existed a city of machines, called Makkina City.
In that city, lived no humans, and nobody knew what humans are/were.
The machines that lived in the city were intelligent, and were able to regulate the city to stable condition.
Every year, a new machine descends to the city from the orbital elevator, situated beside Makkina city.
The orbital elevator was unable to take anything back to space, so it only transported machines to the earth. It also supplied the city with great, virtually unlimited amounts of solar energy.
The machines of Makkina city have long expected for that certain time of the year, for the last machine to descend.
So it has descended.
The last machine from the elevator, the "Z" or "Zeta unit".
They expected the Zeta unit to be the most advanced unit, due to its date of release...
But it appeared to be the least advanced, and there seemed to be nothing special about it...
They didn't know...
The Zeta unit has the mind of a human, complete with memories, the brain of an allegedly extinct and forgotten species!
It is now Zeta's mission to rediscover humanity to the rest of Makkina city, and uncover all the mysteries, while of course, befriending all the cutting-edge machines with special purposes and abilities, and potentially loving them.
Aaaand the player will play as Zeta (probably just male for now.)
