With the knowledge of XL and the Beings becoming known to some, groups have started to form. The Believers who trust and follow the Beings and accept their advanced technology, The Sticks who find the actions of the Beings suspicious while questioning their motives. While many people are ordinary citizens, you and plenty others are no longer among them. It is up to you to choose your side as war starts to brew on the horizon. Good luck Soldier. You will need it.
After being forced to download an app known as 'XL' on his phone by his best friend, local shut in Avon's life takes a turn. Thinking that being forced to go outside was bad enough, Avon finds that the game isn't just a game, and him and his best friend Leo are forced to face the deadly forces behind the creation of XL. In mere days, Avon's life changes from college shut-in to one of the few people who can save the city from the strange Beings that are slowly taken over.
The main protagonist. At 19 he takes college classes online and avidly avoids the outside world. He has a bit of a stoic attitude, and he has common sense strongly on his side. He isn't all that intuitive sometimes, and he tends to freeze up when it matters most to do something. He isn't all that fond of the 'game' XL at first, especially since it deals with leaving the safety of his home.
Avon's best friend. They've known each other since they were 14. He's a light hearted goof ball most of the time, however, there is a darker side to him. He's fiercely loyal, so loyal that it gets him in trouble sometimes. He's willing to fight Avon's battles for him, and he's also adamant about getting Avon to leave his apartment.
A mysterious character met through the chat on XL. He seems to be light hearted, however he doesn't give out a lot of information, especially when it's obvious he knows more than he lets on. There is the question of whether or not it would be wise to trust him.
A girl met at Caran's Game Shop. She is usually soft spoken, however she is not afraid to stand up for herself. She tends to worry over the current events happening in the city, and tends to report things that she's heard back to Avon. She has a little brother whom she cares about deeply, and she would do anything for.
The local hacker that has been keeping tabs on Cam and the events occurring in the city. He has a little sister who he seems distant about, and he looks as if he never gets enough sleep. He knows a lot of things, and he's willing to provide information if he gets something in return. No one really knows what his main motives are.
A girl who is helping the ones that are bent on destroying the city for reasons of her own. She has a knack for violence and cruelty, and isn't afraid to fight for what she wants. Her eyes are dual colored however, symbolizing the split in her soul. Can she be saved from her fate? Or will she end Avon's life instead?

Should be around T (Teen: ages 13+)
How many endings?
12 endings: Six for being a 'Believer' and six for being a 'Sticks'
What I dream of it featuring:
-Customization for Avon's XL avatar.
-an opening movie
-mini-games to simulate the game XL on Avon's phone
What it'll most likely have:
-CG's (unknown number as of now)
-unlockable side stories
-raising friendship ranks with the characters
So far I have a writer (myself), a programmer, an artist, and possibly someone whose doing music(??)
1.Is the premise interesting? Was anything about it confusing?
2. Do you like games that give you unlockable content? Would you prefer to gain it for raising friendship ranks with the characters or by finishing an ending? Both? Neither?
3. What are your impressions of the characters so far?
4. Do you like mini-games in visual novels or no?
5. Any questions? Comments? Concerns?
Anyway, that is all, thank you for looking through this and I hope that this project can really take off. Especially since I have a bunch of other ideas floating around as well.
