Fear&Love:Needed Artists & English translat. (unpaid) EDITED

#1 Post by xavimat » Fri Feb 01, 2013 6:29 pm

Fear&Love
«Why can’t we simply express our feelings?
Why am I afraid to say ‘I love you’?»


Fear&Love is a short Kinetic Novel (about 10000 words) about Kino, a boy who is afraid to confess, and Mae, a girl who struggles with her own heart. They try to help a couple of friends (Subare and Zira) with their relationship and have to face an unexpected question: ‘What are your feelings?’ A wave of doubt and fear overwhelms them: ‘What’s he thinking?’ ‘How is she going to react?’ ‘Can we be sure?’ ‘It can’t be so difficult!’

The VN is narrated from different character’s points of view (Kino, Mae, and more), and sometimes presents their thinkings and their words (that, curiously enough, don’t match). I’ve tried to express this with text in different colors. I expect it’s not too confusing.

PROGRESS:
- Script (Spanish): 100% (I welcome suggestions too)
- Script (English): 2%
- BG: 70% (edited pictures)
- Sprites: 0%
- Music: 70%
- GUI: 0%

CHARACTERS:
- Kino. 17. Long hair (but not too long). Athletic. Soccer player. Forthright in sports, very shy with girls. Loves Mae, and doesn’t know how to say it.
- Mae. 17. Honey-colored eyes. Wants to help her friends. Usually confident, but doesn’t used to look at her feelings.
- Subare. 17. Former Zira’s boyfriend; he still loves her.
- Zira. 17. Former Subare’s girldfriend. She has known another boy...
- Susan. 16. A friend’s cousin. Blonde. Long, long hair. Blue eyes. Cheerful. A little childish. Has a crush on Kino. 90% deaf.

MUSIC:
I'd prefer original music. There are very good composers in the forum!
A possible inspiration: ‘Disabled Emotions Suit’, by zero-project, http://www.jamendo.com/en/list/a30134/d ... ions-suite: «"Disabled emotions" suite is an album which talks about the feelings that must be "disabled" sometimes in our life. It talks about emotions that have been disabled because it was our choice, or, because we were forced to disable them.» I think it fits well with the story.

DOWNLOADS: Part of the script in Spanish:
FearLove-0.1-all.zip
(21.2 MiB) Downloaded 50 times
Part of the Script in English (draft):
FearLove-ED.zip
(21.23 MiB) Downloaded 140 times
BEST DOWNLOAD (SMALLER): Script files, you'll need the Ren'Py launcher to open it:
Fear&Love-enD.zip
(174.76 KiB) Downloaded 37 times
NEEDED (unpaid):
- English translator.
- Sprite Artist (5 characters, with 1 pose, 1 outfit minimum. For Kino, perhaps a 2nd outfit: it’s a soccer player).
- CG’s Artist. I’ve thought in 2-4 CGs. It’s a short story.
- Feedback on the script and story.


This is my first project in this community. I'll welcome any feedback. Thanks!

Wow, ug19. Yes, I like your style (actually, I said "wow" when I saw your post).
I'll send you a PM.

@zankizuna: I think it too. Thank for the comment.

EDITED:
I've added an English translation. It's only a rough draft and needs a full proofreading, but I think English readers can get an idea of what I'm trying to express.

I'll appreciate your comments.

Thanks!
