Pastel Blue [GxB][NPC BxB][Otome, School Life, Comedy]Hiatus

#1 Post by kiirome » Wed May 22, 2013 4:49 am

Hiya! This is my first VN in the making, so guidance would be helpful :D. I'm hoping that this will be good practice so that in the future I can make a VN with an actual storyline.
This is pretty much a one man project -dies-, so please bear with my horribly generic plot and storyline ; _ ; . Very shoujo-ish.
There is a bit of light foul language in this.
Image
Story
Akane has always been interested in the language of flowers. While on her way to finding a part time job because of money issues one day, Akane notices a a strange blue blossom on the ground, and recognizes it as the Forget-me-not. Akane decides that there is no significance in the flower as it means "true love", and carries on. When she later on meets a rude boy at the pet store, she is convinced that there is no such thing as true love. As she is leaving the store, she is stopped by a young child who hands her a pot of the same Forget-me-not flowers, telling Akane that she was asked to deliver it to her by an unnamed boy. Akane goes home unsure of what to do with the flowers, and she finds that there is a strange note embedded in the potted plant.

Three petals lay where
The red camellia blooms
The cherry blossoms rain
The snowdrop glisten and
The yellow tulips sway
But amidst this all
Where am I?


Characters

Hirosaki Akane 17
Image
The main character, your typical high schooler. Being somewhat antisocial, she doesn't seem to notice a lot of things around her. She is rather mature, but also a little cynical, probably from having an alcoholic mother who neglects her duties much of the time. She is also somewhat interested in flower language, though she isn't exactly interested in horticulture.

Sato Yumi 17
Image
Akane's best friend. Can sometimes be quite annoying. She is interested in Sumi, and makes you want to smack her sometimes.

Yuhara Satoru 17
Image
The manager's son at Akane's part time job. He has quite a rude character, and doesn't seem to like you at all. Pretty much your typical tsundere.

Tsukikage Sumi 18
Image
The boy that works in the cafe next door to the pet store. He happens to go to the same school as Akane. Sumi is quite a pushover (No, a complete pushover and sadly real easy to bully), but for the most part a really nice guy.

Aramaki Hokuto 17

Image
An underclassman that goes to Akane's school. Your typical sports crazed guy, except he doesn't seem to be "into" girls very much.

Miyahara Nanase 17
Image
A student in Akane's class, but goes unnoticed for some time. He is extremely shy and unnoticeable apparently, and seems to be a weirdo. He likes the main character, but his actions make him seem a bit like a stalker. Akane hasn't really gotten a chance to see his face, as its always covered by his hair or something. Somewhat like a special character, since he appears mid game.



Screenshots: Everything is very simple :)

Love the art! :)

Edit: May I also point out your tag's seem to be wrong. The [BxG] and [BxB] should be [GXB] and [GxG] if the main character is a girl, shouldn't they?

Those sprites are beautiful! I'm interested to know how the story goes, though...

The art and the plot are good , but BxB? The main character is Akane, right? So, how is this BxG or BXB? Isn't this supossed to be an otome game ( Girl pursuing Boy). I'm confused.

The art is so cute and very colourful... It reminds me of a certain shoujo anime that I liked to watch when I was in my pre-teen years. I just can't remember what it was.

I originally thought the main character was a trap due to the BxG/B tags, but then I saw you referring to the MC with female pronouns and then I notice the otome tag at the title. /brick'd
Miyahara is so adorable, by the way. ;A;

Well, there is one route that leads to a bad end where the main character doesn't get with any of the guys, but rather happens to kind of watch as two of the guys get together with each other rather than with her, so that part is BxB. Is the tag wrong/uneeded? I'm not too sure D: Please correct me if I'm wrong, just thought I needed to note that in case bxb puts anyone off :O

I'm happy to hear you all like the art :D Hopefully I'll finish this as soon as possible and not put it on hold or something OTL

Well maybe you could put [NPC BxB] instead of [BxB]. That way it will be a little more clear that the BxB element is not with the MC.

Aaaanyways I agree that the art is really cute. I look forward to seeing more about the game.
Also I don't know why but I love those types of glasses where you can't see through the glass.

I just wanted to post that there is another game called Forget-Me-Not that's a BxB title.
Just so people don't get confused while it suddenly went from a Otome to a BL in a few posts.
Much Appreciated for those who took the Survey!

I thought of a few.

Remember me forever (For the Forget-met-nots meaning).
Flower Child/The Flower of a Child (A mixture of Akane Japanese name meaning and the word flower).
Petals of Love (Generic love story name)
