The Dare Gamble [GxB][Slice of Life]NEW SPRITES UP :)

#1 Post by MudkipTheDestroyer » Mon Jun 17, 2013 12:57 pm

Hey everyone.

I'm in the progress of making a VN called "The Dare Gamble".

It originally started off as a team project with fellow LemmaSoft member, Elsiversace, with her doing the writing and me coding it for her and sorting out the bugs, writing errors, and artwork. However, she recently sent me what she had of the script and told me that I could continue it on my own if I wanted. Honestly, I think it would be a waste to just cut off this project after she put so much work into it.

Anyway, a lot of work needs to be done with the art and a lot of the plot still needs to be written. There's a chance I won't continue working on it if there is a lack of interest or if it is too difficult to get the work done while going to college and working on my other three projects.

But here is the basic plot and a couple photos:
[Sketches below, more on way]
(The above characters are the MC's friends, Samantha, Nikki, and Heather, if I remember correctly.)
[New art on the way!]
(These above characters are the MC's parents. I have more work to do on their sprites but I s'pose they're okay.)
[Sketches below!]
(Above are the pursuable boys and their descriptions.)

Feedback:
--What do you think of the plot? The character personalities? The character sprites?
--Would you be interested in playing a game like this?
--Which pursuable male would you be most interested in playing for?
--Would you be interested in helping out with finishing up any of the storywriting for me?

Thank you to everyone who reads and comments~! :)

This seems like a pretty interesting concept. I would definitely be interested in trying it out.
I am a sucker for childhood friends, so I would probably go for Ryan's route.

I would say go for it!

However, I need point out one thing: I hope you hadn't planned on using those sprites for the boys.
Those are from a licensed game (Diabolik Lovers) and are not free to use as creative content.

--What do you think of the plot? The character personalities? The character sprites?
the boys - you heard from myapple. even if your game is non-profit, you'll get into big troubles if you use them.
I like how they sound. pretty common, but nothing I can't chew.
--Would you be interested in playing a game like this?
I'm not much for slice-of-life when it comes to VN's, but I'll bite.
--Which pursuable male would you be most interested in playing for?
Um.. Silas first. I would play all for complexion, but the hard-to-get types are my weak spot :twisted:
--Would you be interested in helping out with finishing up any of the storywriting for me?
Uh.. depends how long it is, how many paths or chapters are still to be written.

Overall: This seems like it could become something good. I would suggest art-wise to try to use the same style for the sprites and the CG's. Blends better :). Good luck!

Thanks! And woah o.O I was told by my partner (in charge of getting the art) that it was free to use. Guess I'll have to find something else .-. Thanks a lot for letting me know :)

Thanks for giving your feedback! And it's not meant to be a very long VN. None of the boy's paths are finished, though, and the script could use more detail. Even if you'd like to help on a portion of it (for example, beefing up the script so far or just doing part of one boy's path) it would be greatly appreciated. :) I'll try to find some corresponding sprites to use that are creative commons :0

What do you think of the plot? The character personalities? The character sprites?
~~Well the plot is interesting. The character personalities is quite common but still I know that it can be quite interesting after adding some twist on it. The character sprites are great although like myapple said that those sprite are from a licensed game (Diabolik Lovers) and are not free to use as creative content.

Would you be interested in playing a game like this?
~~Definitely, YES. Playing games is my one way of lessening stress. :3

Which pursuable male would you be most interested in playing for?
~~I would say Silas, I have a fetish for bad boys. :twisted:

Would you be interested in helping out with finishing up any of the storywriting for me?
~~I would help although don't expect too much cause I'm not a writer but still I write. :lol:

Just PM me if you need help. ^^,

The plot was Elsiversace's idea, and I found it interesting, too. As long as I can get some good writers to help out, I feel like the character personalities can be moved deeper if the writers choose to make it a longer VN or not. Maybe I should make a post in Recruitment for it.

I also like how you say that playing VNs reduce your stress. I find that to be true for myself, as well, which is why I wish that there were more free VNs on here :p

You don't need to be a professional - I can proofread any spelling/grammatical errors while I do readthroughs of what you send me if you're willing to help. :) I'll PM you and work out the details(aka what parts you're interested in writing, asking for a sample, your writing speed, ect.)^^
