Caught in between GxB (WIP). Update(April 15, 2011) 1st page

#1 Post by SilverxBlue » Sun Jan 09, 2011 10:24 am

Hi...

After a few weeks here on the forums, I decided to make my first ever visual novel.
Just wanted to have a go so that I could try using renpy.
When we were children, they never drew me towards depraved or extreme situations. But now it feels like it is too much, I'm confused, I don't know who is right or who is wrong, I cannot take a side because I can't stand seeing one of them hurt. Why can't they just be friends again? Why do they have to make me pick? What happened to the boys I used to know?
Plot
The title of the game is Caught in between. You'll be playing the role of a girl named Tanaka Shione she has two childhood friends named Masaru and Kenji. All three of them were inseparable, they went to the the same grade school, the same middle school, and now the three of them went to the same high school. But, when High school came they went to different clubs. Masaru the smart guy joined the book club and the Science club while Kenji became more athletic by joining the Basketball team. Shione, being a great singer, decided to join her school choir. There she met Misaki and instantly became her friend. Misaki was a great friend, and Shione is so grateful that she met her, besides the fact she has OCD and that she constantly reprimands Shione for being lazy. So, Shione lived her High School with Misaki, Masaru and Kenji as her best friends. However, during those two years in High School Masaru and Kenji started to grow apart, Masaru spent more time with his "geek" friends and Kenji spent more time with the jocks. But, they still occasionally go together with Misaki and Shione during lunch and during their walks to and from school. Then came senior year Masaru and Kenji finally grew apart they started to throw offensive insults towards each other and they never spoke to each other again. Shione is still friends with both of them, and her friendship with them is giving her a very big problem because when Masaru and Kenji asks her to choose a side, she cannot answer and since she cannot pick a side yet. She decided to be with Misaki all the time even though she really misses the company of both of the guys .

You will be guiding Shione on her senior-year. It is up to you which guy she would choose. You will determine what her fate would be on her final year in high school. Will you finally pick a side or will you be able to make Masaru and Kenji friends again?

Sorry I had to break my promise. I couldn't post the character portraits. I have to bug my friend again into letting me have them.

Sounds interesting. Be sure to give a really unique route to all the characters, not just a final ending CG.

Good luck!

Thank you..! I've been trying to make the route and the script as unique as possible since the plot is a bit too cliche.

I have to admit, I like this idea. It may be a little standard, but in overall this already looks like a preety solid and well designed story; remember, that the execution is what really matters. You have most of the things fleshed-out and the characters seem to be likeable. The story isn't also that much complicated and it means you're propably manage to finish it and do that in a decent ammount of time. All in all, it's a great idea to begin with and I think you've already found another good artist :)

I also like how you described the characters. You don't have to worry about anything, I'll think you will do well.
If there's something you need, don't be afraid to ask, we will try to help as much as we can.

nice idea... sounds like the usual but... it has this incomprehensible sense of uniqueness to it... maybe because it may have yuri?

About that yuri stuff, I think I wouldn't really call it yuri because even if they always hang out and they always look out for each other, Amber would only be a close friend to Caroline and their relationship is like that of really, really close sisters. In addition, Amber is only a side character she wouldn't have a real path where you could pursue her however, there would be an ending where she would be involved.

Despite the cliche, I really like it so far. I have a soft spot for childhood friends. ^^;
Will you need a lot of emotions? If there aren't too many I might be able to help do the sprites, since 4 characters are very manageable. C:
Just one problem. I'm not good at spiky hair ahaha. Will unruly tousled hair do instead? /bricked
