Anchored Bird [18+] [Slice of Life, Romance, Drama, Tragedy]

#1 Post by moments after you » Wed Dec 10, 2014 1:11 am


Rating: 18+
Genre: Slice of Life, Romance, Comedy, Drama, & Tragedy
Warnings: Sexual themes, Death, Suicide & depression, Violence, Profanity, Hot boys, Feels, and possibly more.

This game is very very early in production, but I just wanted to get it out there and possibly find some help.
Images of characters will be added soon
Anchor Academy is an elite school for those gifted in the world of human services. Students from all over the world come to study at Anchor Academy. Whether it be in the field of medicine or the law, Anchor Academy makes sure their students become the best of the best. Anchor Academy has always been an all boys school, but recently they have opened their academy up to all genders. But only two girls have got in this year.

Anchored Bird focuses on Brigget Kjellberg, a 17 year old female from Sweden, who is one of the only two females accepted to Anchor Academy. The story is narrated through Brigget's eyes and thoughts as she tries to survive the antics of the people around her.

There are five main paths corresponding to the 5 main male characters, each path following the story line pertaining to that character.

Each character is related to an animal, which at the beginning of each act, I wish to implement a introduction that is set up like a child's picture book. Each arc is also based off a song that I personally have hand picked.
Time Frame
The game is set in the non too distant future were humanity has achieved world peace. Earth's people are now united under one government, causing there to be no war nor poverty or hunger. Each separate country is kinda like a "state", they still have their own special set of laws, culture, and tradition. Yet, they are all united.
- Cute child like picture book introduction
- 5 Obtainable Males
- 5 Different Story arcs, each with 2 different endings
- Intense Storylines
- Hot Boys
- A Homosexuality Option
- A Secret Ending
- Hella Free!!!!!!
Main Character
Name: Brigget Kjellberg
Age: 17
Hair: Blonde
Eyes: Brown
Nationality: Swedish
Field of Study: Law
Animal: Bird
Personality: Though her soft pudgy appearance contradicts it, Brigget for sure is the queen of sass. She is someone who you would not want to get into an argument with, because she will for sure win said argument. The girl has worked hard to get to where she is currently and plans to only succeed in life even more.

Lachi Cockburn
Age: 17
Hair: Red
Eyes: Green
Nationality: Scottish/Korean
Field of Study: Medical
Animal: Sheep
Personality: A boy with the heart of an angel and the soul of a devil. Lachi is quite popular around the academy and is known for his heart warming smile. Every morning the boy says hello to everyone he sees and is always humming or whistling a tune. Lachi always goes out of his way to cheer someone up if need be, even if he didn't know the person he would still try. The boy seems to be living his life to the fullest.. like if he could just wither away at any second.
Arc Song

Scott Clark
Age: 17
Hair: Brown
Eyes: Brown
Nationality: American
Field of Study: Medical
Animal: Lizard
Personality: To sum him all up, Scott is a nerd. He tends to be quite awkward when it comes to talking to girls... or anyone really.... maybe that's why he always has a piece of candy in his mouth. But once you get to know him, Scott is quite the charmer. He has tons of knowledge on useless information and video games.. oh does Scott love his video games! The boy is a popular youtuber with tons of 12 year girls and boys swooning over him. No one understands it really... Scott is one heck of a weenie. Even with his popularity of the internet and his happy friend Lachi... there's something dark and heavy hidden in his eyes.
Arc Song

Nicoulas Utkin
Age: 18
Hair: Black
Eyes: Green
Nationality: Russian
Field of Study: Law Enforcement
Animal: Wolf
Personality: Nic is a huge rebel. He's that typical bad boy who doesn't give a crap about love or anything else except his own personal interests. There are millions of rumors going around about him, for example he's part of the mafia.... he's a gang banger..... he has killed a man... multiple men.... he has an extra toe.. Everyone expected for him to have quit school months ago... but his reasons for staying are still unknown.
Arc Song

Harlem Schmidt
Age: 17
Hair: Blonde
Eyes: Blue
Nationality: German
Field of Study: Medical
Animal: Bear
Personality: It's a rare event if you get a word out of this kid. No one really knows if he's just a stuck up brat or super shy. The only time you really hear Harlem talk is if an authority figure asks him something. Even then his voice is barely audible. Even with his quiet demeanor Harlem is the absolute best in the medical major. Students are always trying to get the kid to talk and tell him his way with the human body.... but he keeps silent.
Arc Song

Gouro Watanabe
Age: 18
Hair: Black
Eyes: Brown
Nationality: Japanese
Field of Study: Law
Animal: Snake
Personality: When you first see Gouro, he almost seems vicious. Well.... he is... If you get in this boy's way he will cut you down. The boy comes from a big rich family with 12 children and Gouro being the youngest. From his elegant background, the boy has a certain poise about him that screams classy. A wall of ice seems to surround Gouro.. and he seems so sure of himself, but those heavy bags under his eyes beg to differ.

Comment: If there is any nude sexual content (you mentioned feels) I suggest you describe the characters as being at least 18 years old (USA censorship laws).
I hope you enjoy making your VN and that lots of folks read/play it.
All of my VNs are at

Poorly done hand-drawn art is still poorly done art. Be a Poser (or better yet, use DAZ Studio 3D) - dare to be different.
