At first I'd like to say I'm sorry for my english [until game release it'll be a way better anyway] and Nakakapagpabagabag won't
be filipino [it's not that I don't even know tagalog or so~]. It's just unreasonable liking for strange words and this particular perfectly suits the game idea [means worrisome and is hard to pronounce].
So without further babbling, the plot:
You're just average female student [nameable] who attends typical highschool, does typical things and all this shiet. Your life is peaceful, your parents hate you bla bla bla. It's just so normal you'd like to vomit. Well, yes, you heard weird rumours and have a strange feeling that you've forgotten about something but it's just you and that's how it's supposed to be. Everyone adds -san to your name though you're not even in japan but well, screw it.
............ So, well, something's off and you'd sooner or later notice this. I can't really say more cause it's to be rather unexpected twist. You know Taisho x Alice
? No? I as well, but the point here is you expect something, I dunno, very funny and it turns out to be something completely diffrent. Like when Nozaki-kun has played otoge and the most normal character in reality was reincarnated maou or so. Well, expect unexpected, what else can I say.
Ah, and it becomes slightly dark. I think.
Btw, if everyone except heroine will have hands with six fingers it'd be too obvious something's off? As I thought.
Capturable characters introduction, sprites come eventually
[what am I doing with my life]
A bit of HPD. Just a bit but unfortunately she's not your typical amoeba-heroine. She even has preferences [so capturing certain characters may be a bit harder, for example Megane-kun]: tall guys with low voice or lolis [but no shota] but character is always the most important part. Heroine has a tendency to acting unexpectedly foolish and talking about weird things. A bit nerdy, fails in almost each game and competition. And she likes jumping spiders.
Kabedon prince - Thoth
Her teacher and some kind of childhood friend [kind of cause he's seven years older, so yea]. He acts manly and all but in reality is just a sweetheart. And of course, oh what a surprise, likes to kabedon our beloved heroine. [No, she's not that easy.] Except that he's fine guy who acts slightly childish sometimes. Not in front of normal students but still.
Bro - Gilbert
Great guy, has similar to heroine interests. They became more than acquaintances [but she still don't think 'bout him as a friend] like two years earlier. Heroine still know strangely little about him. But he's great.
Host - Ambrosio
Probably the most popular dude in school. He's smart, athletic, rich, handsome and perfect whatsoever. Lady killer with his own very sad backstory. At this moment heroine thinks he's a jerk cause of not-so-funny event from middle school and yes - his real personality is closer to this.
Megane-kun - Brutus
Foureyed asshole. He's a jerk, moron, fool, bastard and all these censored in newspapers words. But, well, despite all this he's her type + glasses so she's little defenseless to all his mental attacks and he knows that very well. Manipulator suspiciously good at cold reading. Has illegible handwriting.
Shota-kun - Shota
yes, this name exists
Her senpai. Looks like shota, speaks like shota, acts like shota and so on. Obviously it's all facade cause in reality [fanfare please] he's just M. Okay, maybe not just, he has some micro personality beside this and almost perfectly [or it just seems that way?] knows human anatomy for rather obvious reason. Aaand... he's fallen for Yankee-kun but it's still a secret and...
Childhood friend - Toma
yes, from this Toma
Maybe not friend per se but childhood certainly. They've been neighbours since kindergarten or so and used to play together, however, as he's grew up he became more distant for some unknown reason. He acts sometimes like typical onii-chan but often is just a kuudere.
Hahaha - no. Yandere alert.
Yankee-kun - Wyszebor
Doesn't like his name and prefers to name him Wit even if it clearly is another name, not diminutive. Delinquent, works part time in his family' restaurant. He and heroine knows each other, and Ambrosio, since middle school. Despite his looks he's rather shy, at least when certain person is around... ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) Doesn't even know Shota-kun.
Tsundere-chan - Kagami
Tsundere-chan, that's all you need to know... She doesn't
have twintals and isn't
loli. Magical girl, too, sorry, not this tale. Has the Dark SecretTM
Stalker-tan - Mubaraka
She's alway here for our beloved heroine even if isn't needed at the very moment. Curious about her life, her thought, things, life, her, her house, everything. She's truly dedicated to protect heroine from filthy hands of other people. They just want to broke beloved heroine, but she doesn't let them. She'll be always by her side. Always... She's loli. And is proud of this, cause you know... heroine... loli... So, yeah.
Tomboy-chan - Tomo
Umm... Tomboy-chan? When she was little someone foretold her her destined one would be a girl and she still thinks it's true so she's trying to do whathewer she can to act like normal guy... But she looks like grown woman... And still wants to become Prince CharmingTM
She'd attended capoeira lessons with Yankee-kun but resignet quickly.
Moe-chan - Blair
Perhaps ideal partner for Shota-kun. Has twintails, acts like very imouto-ish imouto, likes sweets... A bit clumsy, moe, moe, moe... Moe and moe. But obviously, like everyone in this vn, she's not who you think she is if you don't know what I mean in the first sentence. [Shota-kun...]
NPCs don't exist at this very moment
I know this looks rather poor but, no matter how you look at this, if I reveal too much it won't be surprising anymore.
But if someone nice asks...
I'm a fan of Dostoyevsky's and Strugatsky brothers' fiction and want to experiment with narration so not everything would be clear till the end. I mean it'd probably be something between
[or I just hope it'd be]
Nabokov's style and this used at 'A Gentle Creature' but with a bit eerie atmosphere similar to papers-about-Lev-Abalkin-[and-of-course-Golovans]-which-shows-to-reader-Maxim-Kammerer.
Something like that would surely fit a book but if is also good for a visual novel... After all I'm writing in my native language and it'll be translated to english when I find a proofreader and be a way better at translating. It's bizarro so it should be fine but still...
Because of this, as you may already expected, despite being an otome it just won't be too
full of romantic moments et caetera
[and it's not that I just want to make a parody but can't write something not related to horror-like]
. You're warned.
Insanely long [at least for me since I'm doing this alone :c]
At least two endings for each capturable character + Bakarina-inspired-harem-end + hidden route + fake end + true end. Maybe a bit more, I'm not sure yet.
It'll be free and 1280x720
Probably only Windows [can't check how it'll be working on other platforms]
So there come the questions:
♦ Would anyone be interested in something like this?
♦ Is it too many capturable characters?
♦ Are the characters broken [but still generic] enough? [It's a parody after all.]
♦ Style of writing sounds interestings or would you like more straightforward one?
♦ What would you like to see in this kind of game?
♦ Any other comments?
