[COMPLETE] (P)lanets -GxB

Demo available!


Hello! I've started working on a new otome (GxB) game, so here's a forum for anyone interested! This is my first visual novel I'm making.
The genre of this VN is a comedy and romance, with very small sci-fi elements.
*I'm sorry, English isn't my first language.




PLOT
Can you bend a spoon just by staring at it?
Can you switch bodies with whomever you want?
Can you hear your cat speak to you in the night?
Don't worry – you aren't crazy.
Welcome to the place for people like you: (P)lanets – The Psychic Learning Academy for New and Exciting Tactical Studies.
This is a school for those gifted with psychic abilities!


Marin was a normal girl, until one day she fell down the staircase at school. She had a concussion, and when she awoke in the nurse's room, something had changed. She could hear the thoughts of everyone around her! What was going on...?
It was then a mysterious boy appeared before her. “Come with me, where there are others like you.”
Like that, Marin's days at Planets began.
Perhaps she will find love through the chaos of a new and strange school.

CHARACTER

Image
Marin
Age: 15
Bio: This is you, or rather, the heroine/protagonist of the story. Despite having good grades, is somewhat of an airhead who is easily flustered. Her clumsiness resulted in the tragic accident of falling down the stairs one day. Somehow, that accident made her into a telepath..

Image
"I won't let anyone in"
Kaius
Age: 16
Bio: A quiet boy who usually keeps to himself. He is the son of Planets' principal, but his psych is unknown to anyone. Kaius is very dark and intimidating, thus others tend to avoid him. He becomes scary when upset - don't anger him. If only there was someone to find the kindness in his heart...

Image
"Love is fun!"
Ryuu
Age: 17
Bio: A very cheerful person, he can get along well with most people in the academy, though his obnoxious attitude can bother some. He does horribly in lessons, but makes no effort to improve. This has given him the reputation of a slacker. Ryuu can be somewhat dense when it comes to expressing his true feelings and doesn't always realize what his actions might imply.

Image
"I just want you to be happy..."
Lucan
Age: 17
Bio: Lucan is the type of boy that girls love and many boys envy. He is both kind and thoughtful. People come to him a lot for advice on relationships. He cares a lot about other people, maybe too much. Lucan is always there for anyone who needs him. Seeming to be the perfect boy, one must wonder at what cost does perfection come?

Image
Haruhi
Age: 13
Bio: Marin's good friend, though he is still in middle school. Likes dressing as a girl for some reason.

Progress for the Final Version:
Script - 70%
Plot Planning - 100%
Character Art - 100%
CGs - 25%

They're all the same height... ?

Oh, your boys are lovely. I wish to play Ryuu and pursue Marin, ハハハ, like a classic one-person bishoujo game. Believe me, your plot may not be original but it's not completely unoriginal either.

It's all in the execution! If you go for laughs, make sure that you get feedback like "I enjoyed it!" or "It was funny!" and not "I couldn't take it seriously at all, the writing was so bad" that's not the kind of funny you want...
Don't worry, we can get through it together. I didn't forget about you! I just got overwhelmed.

When drawing something, anything, USE REFERENCES!! Use your Google-fu!
Don't trust your memory, and don't blindly trust what others teach you either.
Research, observation, analysis, experimentation and practice are the key! (:

--JinzouTamashii
Oh... perhaps I should make them of different heights? OwO;;
I didn't think about that.
Yes yes, I'm hoping that it will be a cute and funny type of game. When I said 'don't take it seriously' I was meaning that this is just something I'm doing for fun, not a serious project.

Thanks everyone n_n
I'm surprised that people like Lucan, I planned to redo him but now I suppose I will keep him the same.
I'll post a CG here as soon as I can !

Thank you!!!
Does their hair all looks the same? OTL.
Forgive me... I'm fond of the long, messy hair look and I think I made only guys who I would date. xD
By the way I attached the first CG.
The fateful accident that made Marin a telepath!

Holy, this looks awesome! I'll definitely be keeping track of this project. :D

Lolz, the hair does look the same for all the guys but... Who cares, they look great and besides, their facial features are distinct so we can always tell them apart. :3
First project in progress (GxB): .::Meaning of Words::.

The hair looks fine to me. Heck, they could all have the same colored hair as long as they had different personalities.

Darn stairs and their evil ways...

In Japan: yes.
I don't mind the height/hair "similarities" -- I've seen worse games where everyone (absolutely everyone) looked the same.
And it's pretty realistic considering the game seems to be set in faux-Japan.

Personal response:
GxB!! You're making my heart explode!
I'm sooo happy with the influx of female programmers here (er, at least, GxB programmers ...). I'll be even more happy with some GxB games released. Fluffy or not. ;)

Well I made a promotional image! (See attachment)
I think this will be for the game menu.
Can you see a better differentiation in each character here? And yes Kaius is very thin.
I've been drawing so much lately... my hand cramped. (All the images posted here was drawn between yesterday and today, FYI!)

--EbonyChalk
I'm glad you can tell them apart. xD If you couldn't I'd be a little depressed.

--Aleema
I'm glad I made your heart explode, I think. :o
It is set in Japan! I think Ryuu looks like a very normal Japanese boy. :lol:
Though Lucan is an Italian name and Kaius was a name I got when I misspelled 'Klaus'. So I suppose they aren't Japanese. Not that that matters too much..
