-STORY-
"Band, Atten Hut!"
Image
Hello there! My name is Cadence. I’m a junior in high school and the new drum major of my school's band: The Blue Mountain Marching Bandits! I’m so excited (and a tad nervous...) for my first year in such an important role. I’ll try to be the very best conductor and leader I can!
Image
To be honest, the past few years have been rough for the Bandits...it’s been pretty demoralizing. Directors have been coming and going, students are dropping out, and competition scores have been lower than ever.
Image
But all of that is about to change! This year, we're getting a new band director named Mr. Victor Wiley, a passionate alumni of Blue Mountain High School. I can tell he's determined to salvage the declining band program and take us to new heights when competition season arrives, just like I am!
Image
For Band Camp this year, Mr. Wiley said we'll be going away to a literal camp in the middle of nowhere--to "focus on learning this year’s field show and attain the ultimate level of band bonding." Words cannot describe how much I’m looking forward to this! I’m going to use this precious time to grow as a leader and make tons more friends. After all, it’s a fresh new year filled with hope and opportunity.
I hope the band is ready to experience plenty of blood, sweat, and tears, because this is going to be a marching band season unlike any other!
Image

-GAMEPLAY/FEATURES-

In Band Camp Boyfriend, the player’s choices will greatly influence day-to-day events, Cadence's leadership style, and her relationships with other characters. Eventually, her choices will determine which boy’s route the player ends up on.

STATS? - There are two stat systems in place, a primary one (Boys' Affinity Stats) and secondary one (MC's Stats) but they will remain hidden from the player as we would like the focus to be on the unfolding story. We believe stats should serve the story, not the other way around, and will be using them behind the scenes to assist in creating the most authentic and engaging experience possible. The affinity stats play the largest role in determining the direction of the story (and will visibly affect certain characters' behavior toward the MC), but the MC's own feelings and the culmination of past choices will be factors as well. The MC's stats determine her dominant personality traits and will be used to give her some small variations in dialogue throughout the common branch for some extra spice. :wink: We may also implement them in a special way on the boys' routes but that is yet to be determined.

DIFFICULTY LEVEL - The game will be difficult enough that players have to use their heads when making decisions, especially in the latter half of the game. But it will not be so difficult that everyone will be required to use a walkthrough to reach all the true/good endings. We're a bit traditional in the way that each character has one good or "true" end and one big bad end, with no "neutral" endings. However, we hope the bad endings will be satisfying in their own twisted way. They should be experiences players won't want to miss out on!

There is not always one right answer and there is room for error when it comes to making decisions, so players will have more freedom to make choices that are true to themselves. You're not going to bomb just because you misread a couple social cues, rather, bad endings are triggered by a pattern of choices that push the plot in a particular direction. Also, so long as you're not completely rude to EVERYBODY, some guy - not every guy - but SOME guy is going to like you no matter what your personality is or what answers you choose. Each love interest has different preferences and significant roles in story arcs other than their own.

LAST WORDS - We are passionate about making a game that remembers and acknowledges past choices. Sure, it requires more writing and programming, but it's important to us that players feel their choices carry weight, that they are directly and naturally influencing the story, character interactions, etc. as much as possible. Hopefully this level of detail we're putting into the writing will bring this world and its characters to life and our long as heck common branch will be as replayable as possible.
FEATURES
-7 Romanceable Characters
-15+ Endings
-20+ Unique Sprites with a Wide Range of Personalities and Expressions
-Unlockable Final Arc
-A Number of CGs (The final number will be determined at a later date, but we're looking at a minimum of 24-26)
-Original Soundtrack
-Partial Voice Acting
-Band Geeks


-MAIN CHARACTERS-

Each of the dateable guys is based on the popular personality stereotype of the instrument they play. For example, Peter the trumpeter has a huge ego and Clark the clarinetist is a no-nonsense perfectionist. There are many other personalities band musicians will recognize!
Sprites by FloraDrawz

CADENCE
Image

“This is going to be the best two weeks ever. I went nuts with packing. Brought my swimsuit for the lake, my A+ badminton game, and...OH NO I FORGOT MY INSTRUMENT.
…Oh, wait. I’m the drum major! Hahaha.”


Age: 16, Junior
Height: 5’ 4’’
Birthday: April 16
The Drum Major
Our heroine! She is re-nameable, although her default name is Cadence and we will continue to refer to her as such. Cadence is energetic, strong-willed, and a bit quirky. She has a deep love for marching band, her second family. It has given her lasting friendships and helped her to come out of her shell over the years, transforming her into the person she is today. Now that she has risen to the position of drum major, more than anything, she wants to serve as an inspiration and be a great leader to her peers.

TOM
Voiced by Joe Goffeney
Image

“So practice was pretty great today, right? I won a lightsaber battle with my trombone and found five bucks!”

Age: 16, Junior
Height: 5’ 8’’
Birthday: May 22
Section: Trombone
Goofy and loud like the instrument he plays, Tom is an easygoing class clown who is comfortable in his own skin. He lives to make his friends laugh, but more often than not, he spends his time gaming and being a nerd. Tom has been a good friend of Cadence’s since middle school band, when they first noticed each other. He can be rather lazy when it comes to practicing, but he’s good at playing loud. Everyone knows his name because the band director is constantly telling him to shut up or stop sounding like a lawnmower.

PETER
Voiced by Jonathan David Bullock
Image

“I don’t blame you. You must have heard trumpet players are the best kissers in the band.”

Age: 17, Senior
Height: 5’ 11’’
Birthday: August 19
Section: Trumpet
Peter is living proof of that trumpet players have huge egos. Confident, flirtatious, and sassy, he’s the kind of guy who can't be without a girlfriend for long. Although he’s an extraordinary talented player, Peter is afflicted with a major case of senioritis. It doesn’t help he is fresh off his first summer tour with the Red Angels Junior Drum and Bugle Corps, quite a step up from high school marching band. That trumpet player who always takes the last note up and hangs over the cutoff.

CLARK
Voiced by Joe Goffeney
Image

“There is too much talking during rehearsal. There is a time and place for behaving like unsophisticated apes but that time is not in the middle of band practice!”

Age: 16, Junior
Height: 5’ 8’’
Birthday: January 2
Section: Clarinet
Clark is the prudish, no-nonsense leader of the clarinet section. His devotion to marching band is unmatched. Hardworking and dedicated, he holds everyone including himself to high standards, and is always going out of his way to trying to impress the band director. Some might call him a brownnoser. Clark auditioned for drum major in spring and lost to Cadence, despite being the more skilled conductor of the two. He has been bitter toward her ever since.

SAMUEL
Voiced by Devon Kay
Image

“Relax. Don’t apologize. Just feel the music.”

Age: 17, Senior
Height: 5’ 9’’
Birthday: March 4
Section: Alto Saxophone
The quiet, mysterious leader of the saxophone section who is rarely seen without his shades of blue, even indoors and at night. Samuel is cool, laid-back, and enamored with his music above all else--especially jazz. He excels in the art of jazz improvisation and is very perceptive, at least when he's not tuning everything out. Throughout Band Camp, he seems aloof and preoccupied. Perhaps something in his past has affected him?

“POPTART”
Voiced by Jared Raman
Image

“My guidance counselor said marching band would help me get more socially acclimated…heheh!"

Age: 15, Sophomore
Height: 5’ 5’’
Birthday: February 4
Section: Mellophone
Poptart is soft spoken upon first impression, but when shown a little kindness and patience he quickly opens up and proves to be a bubbly and cheerful boy. Bright, quirky, curious, and more than a little offbeat, he may come off as childish, but deep down he is surprisingly thoughtful and mature. Even though it's his second year of high school, this is his first year in the band and he'll need all the help he can get. No one knows his real name because everyone always calls him by his nickname.

DOUG
Voiced by Richard Barcenas
Image

“I've never run anyone over, but one time I ran myself over.”

Age: 17, Junior
Height: 6’ 3”
Birthday: December 15
Section: Drumline; Bass Drum
A former football player and carefree momma’s boy. Doug played in the pit for his first year of band and is finally making his debut as a member of the drumline, thanks to his impressive strength that enables him to lug the biggest bass drum around the field. Although his varsity sports days are behind him, he still leads an active lifestyle and can typically be found throwing a football or a frisbee during water breaks, endangering instruments and humans alike. Doug may not be the sharpest knife in the...place...where they keep the knives, but he’s the heart of the band in more ways than one.

GARTH
Voiced by Joseph Ryan
Image

“Only a true leader would be so concerned about doing the right thing. Cadence, you are a person full of talent and dedication. You are going to be just fine.”

Age: 17, Senior
Height: 6’ 0’’
Birthday: November 13
Section: Color Guard
The ambitious Band President and Captain of the Color Guard. Garth is the only male member of the guard and the ladies love him for his polite and gentlemanly nature. However, he has a competitive streak he conceals from most. He is an overachiever who takes part in a great number of extracurricular activities and a versatile musician, playing bassoon and piano during the concert season. Since he and Cadence both hold leadership roles, they’ll be working together closely to ensure that Band Camp proceeds smoothly under Mr. Wiley’s direction.


-THE SUPPORTING CAST-
ImageImageImageImageImage
FROM LEFT TO RIGHT:

MR. WILEY
Voiced by Mark Coutu
Age: 33
Height: 5’ 10’’
Birthday: March 30
The Band Director
The fearless, enthusiastic director of the Marching Bandits and a proud alumni of Blue Mountain High School. He’s a man with a plan and is ready to build this broken band into something great. He can be scatterbrained and moody at times (like most band directors), and he often tries to act “hip” and progressive to appeal to the younger generation, but this fails him more often than not.

BANDIT
Age: 3
“Birthday”: May 19
Assistant to the Director
Mascot by day, Mr. Wiley’s beloved (illegally owned?) pet by night. Like the rest of her kind, Bandit is a kleptomaniac and prefers doing her own thing. At night, she can often be found stalking through the Camp’s woods or rooting through its dumpsters.


SUSIE
Voiced by Emily Woolf
Age: 16, Junior
Height: 5’ 1''
Birthday: July 9
Section: Tuba
Cadence’s roommate and closest friend at Band Camp. Susie may be small, but she packs a punch and wields a sousaphone like it’s nobody’s business. With her bubbly, sunny personality, she gets along with most everyone in the band.


FELICITY
Voiced by Mello-Knight
Age: 16, Junior
Height: 5’ 3’’
Birthday: September 26
Section: Flute
Felicity is Peter’s perky girlfriend (though they seem to be on the outs) and daughter of the Band Booster President. She is the popular diva of the band who will gladly soak up attention like a sponge, especially from boys.

MARIAN
Voiced by Melody Muze
Age: 17, Senior
Height: 5’ 7’’
Birthday: April 20
Section: Pit Percussion
Marian is the pit captain and also the band’s librarian in charge of keeping track of all sheet music. And she will not take your crap. She comes off as rude and direct and is often left exasperated by all of the problems piling up on her back, but she’ll warm up if shown a little sympathy.

ALEX
Voiced by Daisy Guevara
Age: 14, Freshman
Height: 5’ 3’’
Birthday: July 31
Section: Bari Saxophone
Peter’s obnoxious little brother who just started his first year in band. He is loudmouthed and loves to say things that tick people off. Despite being a rookie, he’s convinced he already knows the ins and outs of marching band. He and his brother fight a lot, but he has a deep admiration for him he wouldn’t readily admit to.

And more! But we have to save some character intros for the game, right?



-CURRENT DEVELOPMENT TIMELINE/PROGRESS-

Our Demo is slated to launch late this year or early next year, by January or February 2018, and our Kickstarter Campaign will follow shortly thereafter. We hope to release the full game in Summer 2019. That might seem far off, but it's a large game with a heck of a lot of content, so we have no doubt it’ll need those 18 months in development.


DEMO PROGRESS:
Writing: 100%
Sprites: 100%
Backgrounds: In-Progress
Music/Sound Effects: 60%
Programming: 50%
Voice Acting: In-Progress

The script will undergo a number of revisions over the next year, but here is the current progress on the draft for the full base game:

Common Branch: 100%
Peter Arc: 95%
Clark Arc: 100%
Doug Arc: 100%
Garth Arc: 100%
Tom Arc: 75%
Samuel Arc: Outlined
Poptart Arc: 17%

lol I think I was immediately interested in this because I was apart of my school's band. Though it was not a marching band and those are uncommon here BUT STILL. I think the art is really cute and the premise sounds sweet. I definitely like Doug the most so far, but they all seem like really nice dudes. Good luck on the project! :) I'd love to see where this project goes

Woo ★ Hope you don't mind me stopping by and dropping a comment ★

1. What piqued your interest in this game? Are you/were you in band or do you play a musical instrument?

Band things aren't my things but the premise and the characters are super cute so I cannot help myself ( ⭐ v ⭐ ) Also, nyoom, the protagonist is very adorable ★

2. What do you think of the premise and setting?

School band really isn't a thing where I come from so I can't draw any thoughts from experience. It's certainly lovely though, I have never seen one about summer camp for band before.

3. What are your initial impressions of the dateable characters? Which one(s) stands out to you most, or which do you think you would pursue first?

I like the dynamic on-going here, there seems to be a variety of characters to choose from and they all seem interesting. I must say, Poptart caught my attention the most ★ But my heart goes to characters like Clark, so we shall see, but I will play all routes of course, completionist blood :v

4. What do you think of the protagonist?

As mentioned before, she's adorable! I feel like she'll lead an interesting story to follow so I'm excited to play the game when it comes out ★

5. Do you have any expectations?

Hmm, I'm most looking forward to see the writing, I hope it will be fluffy and cute, not to mention humorous! I'm a die hard for good humor to be honest, I think it's mentioned that there'll be mystery and thriller so I hope the writing would work out well with that theme as well!

6. Any other questions, comments, or feedback?

Good luck with the game! Excited to see its release ★

1. What piqued your interest in this game? Are you/were you in band or do you play a musical instrument?
I'm not even a fan of otome games, just an ex-musician. Dropped it, not my thing anymore. Just an orchestra, not a marching band though.

2. What do you think of the premise and setting?
YES! Is this enough?
Like, I mean, I can't ignore this as a musician myself, and I sorta want to see how it turns out. How much realism would you put into this?

3. What are your initial impressions of the dateable characters? Which one(s) stands out to you most, or which do you think you would pursue first?
I guess I'm looking at them through my experience with other musicians with same instruments...
Tom: bro.
Peter: I don't trust you.
Clark: I can work with you as long as you don't get in my way.
Samuel: I don't like you. It's kinda personal, I don't trust those sax guys even in real life here.
"Poptart": little bro.
Doug: bro.
Garth: who are you to command me?
4. What do you think of the protagonist?
She's believable. Adorable.

5. Do you have any expectations?
As long as you succeed in releasing it, it's gonna be great.

6. Any other questions, comments, or feedback?
/me checks the roster once again
I sorta wonder if there is a BIG, BIG tubist at least amongst the supporting cast. Tuba is an instrument too big just to abandon it completely. Or one of it's relatives, like sousaphone or helicon.
Oh well.
Best luck with the production and release.

1. What piqued your interest in this game? Are you/were you in band or do you play a musical instrument?:
I play mallet percussion in my school band (and I am VERY TIRED of it). But yeah, having been in band for nearly 8 years, this caught my attention.

2. What do you think of the premise and setting?:
I love it.

3. What are your initial impressions of the dateable characters? Which one(s) stands out to you most, or which do you think you would pursue first?:
Tom is my freaking favorite. That quote is perfect, especially because most of our trombonists embody that stereotype pretty much perfectly.

4. What do you think of the protagonist?:
She's adorable, like people have been saying, and I admire her dedication. She seems like she'll be a fun MC. ^_^

5. Do you have any expectations?:
A cute, fun game, I guess? That shouldn't be too hard with your premise. c:

6. Any other questions, comments, or feedback?:
I'm so tempted to show this to my band director.

@Mysterious Friend - Thank you for your comments! Flora’s art is adorable, isn’t it? :) Most people I’ve pitched the game to seem drawn to the brass boys at first glance (Tom, Poptart, ...Peter though he's gotten mixed reviews xD) so it’s nice to see someone mention Doug for a change. Doug is special and I can’t wait for people to see him in action~
Woo ★ Hope you don't mind me stopping by and dropping a comment ★
@potouto - Of course I don’t mind! I'm thrilled you stopped by. I haven't gotten the chance to speak with you directly since you had been corresponding with my sister, but I love your logo more every time I see it! Thanks so much for working with us! Also, I’M SO HAPPY YOU LIKE CLARK! That boy needs more love, haha.

We consider humor to be one of our strongpoints as writers. We're huge fans of shows like The Office with character and situational driven humor, so expect lots of that! :wink:
YES! Is this enough?
Like, I mean, I can't ignore this as a musician myself, and I sorta want to see how it turns out. How much realism would you put into this?
@Dark Sentinel - Good question! It’s not typical for kids to go away for Band Camp, but we thought it would be more fresh and...adventurous? Than just holding band in a typical high school setting. There's also a lot more writing freedom and time for characters to interact with each other while living in close quarters in a focused area, rather than going back and forth between a school. I suppose there are a few other aspects of the plot that require players to suspend their disbelief a little, but generally it’s VERY true to real life marching band experience. And of course, we make an effort to create characters that seem like they could be real people.

Your list amused me! Now I'm curious what on Earth happened to make you so distrusting of saxophone and trumpet players, being a trumpet player myself. :lol: I’m thrilled people who don’t even play Otome games are showing interest in this. Even though that's the framework it's built upon with the character routes, there’s a lot more to it than romance.
I sorta wonder if there is a BIG, BIG tubist at least amongst the supporting cast. Tuba is an instrument too big just to abandon it completely. Or one of it's relatives, like sousaphone or helicon.
Rest assured our instrument representation is pretty darned solid. Our tuba player will be in our next update. Oh heck, I can't keep my mouth shut.

"Susie"
6. Any other questions, comments, or feedback?:
I'm so tempted to show this to my band director.
@Zelan - If you do, I would be very curious to know the reaction. xD And I promise we didn't forget about the mallet percussion players either.

Thank you everyone for your feedback and well wishes! Have a wonderful day!

Eh.
I don't have anything against trumpeters.
Like, all the trumpeters I knew were bros, more or less. Fine, trusted, reliable guys. It's more like I don't trust personally Peter's huge ego.
All the sax players I knew (except one, him being a military musician) had their egos inflated beyond any sane limits. "I'm the sax God, and you all are dirt under my divine nails". They kept that attitude towards us brass section, each other, their teachers, conductor - everyone, so I don't trust them in real life.
"Susie"
:3
Hell.
If this wasn't an otome - or if suddenly it's GxG - I would be going for her. Absolutely. Too cool. Too smug. Too sousaphone. One love.
She's not even a bro. Okay updating list:
Susie: divine sister in arms, since I'm tubist myself.

I'm loving all of the feedback so far! Every time I see a new response, it brightens my day. <3

So with your dislike of people who play saxophone...one might say you are...a saxist.

Okay, that's going in the game.

Hi, everyone. Inferno the concept artist here. I've known Xandra and Mello-Knight for ages, even long before our days in the same high school marching band. When they approached me with the initial game idea and asked if I wanted to make concept art, I jumped right on it. I'll certainly post my concept sketches and all kinds of other goodies in the future, most likely on tumblr if/when we get that set up.

It's great to see so many interested people! <3

"You saxists!"
So WOO. Check em' out. In other news:

*Just want to take the time to mention that our Casting Calls on BTVA and CCC will be closing in less than two weeks. We got a little excited and cast the female characters already since we felt we found the perfect voices for those roles. But all the male roles will remain open until June 10th. We've received a lot of stellar auditions and we're SO excited to cast the rest of the characters, but we're keeping an open mind until the deadline. ^^ Links to both casting calls can be found in the main post.

*Last but not least, WELCOME MAYUNNAISE TO THE BAND CAMP BOYFRIEND STAFF! She is our new Chibi Artist and she's doing a fabulous job! Here's a preview:

Yay, I guess?
Mr. Wiley: I'm watching you carefully, sir. I sorta wonder how you turn out, so I'm not commenting on you. Would you be like the conductors I knew or no?..
Bandit: Please go away, I don't have any items of interest.
Susie: Sister in arms, because the divine made it so.
Felicity: Attention you say? Fine, you're receiving none, we're here to work, not to... er... "attention".
Marian: Tough work, sis. Want me to buy you some vodka bring you some coffee?
Alex: Just tell me honestly, you're here to drive me mad? Oh, you are. Great.
"You saxists!"
Well awch, that stings.

But so far the supporting cast looks solid. Just awesome. Looking forward for more updates and good luck.

I'm dying because I like Alex more than Peter and that's just...wait, do I have a thing for cute young boys. Maybe. But he's adorable, what a brat I'm going to pinch his cheeks. Other characters in supporting cast look great as well. I actually like Felicity and Marian, I love diva type of characters, especially those with depth. Marian is basically the female example of my favourite trope so of course she catches my eyes. Great job so far! Cheering for you guys <33

Alex: Just tell me honestly, you're here to drive me mad? Oh, you are. Great.
The sax god has arrived. ;)

Oh man all those beautiful sprites! I've gotta say I'm most interested in Clark because I have a weakness for the no-nonsense types. >w< Good luck with this you guys.

To answer a few of the questions, I was never in band but so many of my friends were, and they were constantly making band 'in' jokes and talking about how great it was. I was a choir girl xD I'm not usually a fan of high school settings, but I guess what drew me was the idea of focusing on one particular aspect of high school, i.e band, and having it be a major part of the plot, rather than just 'well we're in high school, yup, that's a thing'.

If I see the kick starter around in the future I'll definitely help out!

I'm SO happy that Clark is getting some love! He's one of my favorites. I was worried everyone would bypass him since he looks so unfriendly.

Yeah, there are plenty of high school dating sims out there already. Focusing on a particular niche will hopefully help us stand out more and appeal to lots of "band kids" haha. :)

Thank you so much! <3 We really appreciate it!
