Timeskip [Otome, Slice of Life, Tragedy]

#1 Post by Nomae » Sun Jul 14, 2013 2:41 am

(YAY new logo! Credits to iiStarCandy :) )

Story
Serena never knew what she wanted to do when she was in high school. She had good grades but just had no interest in any fields. Until one day, an incident occurred that changed her life. Because of this incident Fai and Serena slowly grew apart.
A couple of years later Serena is now a a full-fledged physiotherapist working in a hospital. On her first day of work Serena is assigned to her first client who is none other than Fai. You will follow Serena's first two months of her job. It is up to you to decided whether to put your personal life or job above all.

Genre
Timeskip is a stat-rising otome game which falls into the categories of Slice of life and a sprinkle of tragedy :)

Features
-You will be able to play one week of Serena's life as a high school student and play two months of Serena's life after university
-3 obtainable guys
- Original Sprites and CG's
-A total of 9 endings, three of each guys (Consisting of a normal, good and best ending)

Main Characters
Image
Serena is a person who prefers to keep her inner thought to herself and finds it difficult to reach out to other people. She was student with good grades however she has no idea on what she wants to do with her life, until an incident that occurred during high school.

Image
From left to right Xander, Dmitri, Fai
Xander:
Xander is Serena's senior who has a clear idea on what he wants to when he leaves school. He is a quiet individual who knows his goals and will not stop until he reaches them. Like Serena he has trouble expressing himself to others.
Dmitri:
Dmitri is Fai's closest friend who has a love for music just like Fai. Dmitri is a happy person who puts loyalty above the rest. He did not go to the same high school as the other main characters.
Fai:
Fai was Serena's best friend in high school. Fai is a very outgoing and childish person who knows how to make anyone happy. He planned to be a musician once he left high school.

Side Note
As you could tell by the title of the game, there will be a timeskip in the game.
Also
Let me know what you think of this little game so far if you like the idea of it
and
Which guy do you like best so far and why?
Thanks!!
(I will upload information about the minor characters and screenshots once I've finished the GUI :P)

I like the idea, it seems very interesting! Although, this concept reminds me somewhat of Winter Wolves' game "Always Remember Me". I guess I'm most interested in Dmitri and Fai at the moment. Now, for a few questions I have:

Is Fai's name pronounced "Fay" or "Fi"? ^^; Also, in Fai's character description, you mentioned that "He plans to be a musician once he leaves high school"; this is speaking in the present tense, so is a part of the game going to include Serena and the three characters during their high school years? (I'm assuming this is the "time skip" portion of the game?) How long will each route be, if the game takes place over two months?

I think this VN could be very interesting with a good script and detailed characters. Good luck! :)

Ahh I've played Always Remember Me! Haha now that you mention it It kind of does but Fai and Serena weren't dating

Fai's name is pronounced the way it is spelt, so sort of a japanese pronunciation of the name

(Ahh sorry well I fixed that part!) Umm yes you'll play one week of their high school life then the timeskip. You then play two months of her life working at the hospital.

How long the route is will depend on the ending you get. So a normal ending won't be as long as the best ending, if that makes sense

Thank you!!!

Serena *coughcough* I really like that name somehow.

I'm somehow happy that the Slice of Life genre are increasing now, plus tragedy adds a little chill in me!
I personally think I will like this otome game, since I will able to experience the high school life and also carrier life, which isn't featured in most games. And I'm curious of this timeskip system, will it affect the storyline if applied, I wonder.

The male that catches my eyes right now is no other than Xander. He seems nice and determined enough. But Fai would be his competition as well.

Good luck! I wish you all the best on finishing this game. I know I will be looking forward for it!

Oh gosh I just checked out your game! Ah just one letter difference! (I actually got the name from Sailor Moon! Haha I know not very creative :P)
Umm well I've made it sort of like Dandelion, so at the start of the game you chose the route that you will play after the timeskip. (The route you play will depend on the choices you've made before the timeskip)

I also finished the main menu today what do you guys think of it?

Just finished coding I'd say around a little more than half of Fai's route!!!

Progress so far!!!
Story: 100%
Script: 100%
Sprites: 100%
CG's: 1/15
Backgrounds: 100%
GUI: 60% (just gotta code all the GUI D:)
Programming: 25%

Here's a side character in my game (But she's sorta a main character in one of the guy's route!!!)
Image
Her name is Phoebe and she is actually Dmitri's older sister. She is also good friends with Fai but she is also friends with Xander. Phoebe is a very easy person to read you can tell if she is happy, sad or even angry

AND I'm actually working on Fai's second CG right now so I thought I'd give you guys a sneak peak!! (sorta)


(Will reveal more additional characters soon :))))

I like the idea of a timeskip, as I like all the guys. I like slice of life games a lot because I don't know, they're easier to connect to/get into to, I think. As of now, I think Xander and Fai are vying for #1.

@compositionc
Yeah I completely agree! I didn't want to make a game to drama filled :P

@iiStarCandy
Haha it seems like Fai is getting popular :P
Oh goodness really?!? I've been looking for someone to make a logo on DA but no luck :P
I had a look at your blog your logos are awesome and it would be even better if you could make one for me!! :D
How should I message you about it?

@Kyra10
Thank you! I'm glad you like it!! Hopefully the game meets your expectations :)

@hikaa212
Thank you and xander and fai seem to be getting lots of attention :P

And time for some updates!!
I have a new logo for the game!!! What do you guys think?
Image
(it was made by iiStarCandy, so all credits for the logo go to iiStarCandy)

I'm also currently working on the ending CGs for Fai's route. So each of the three endings for each guy will have a different CG! So you'll just have to play all the endings to get all the CGs :P

Heyyy, the new logo looks nice :D I've been stalking this for a while, it's just I'm too lazy to comment, gomen ne~
Anyway, I like the story, aaaaaannnnddddd I like Fai too :lol: (Best friend ftw!!!)
But when you put stat-raising, will it affect the ending? I hope it's not too hard cuz...I suck at stuff like that :<
Looks like the game is almost done? I'm happy to see it's progressing well.

@Mimi_Melody
Haha that's ok! I'm stalking a couple games which I haven't commented on yet :p
Um yes the stats will affect the ending you get
I've think I've made the better endings quite hard to get so I might change it to make it easier for you guys to get a better ending :) (but at the same time I want people to get the normal ending first then aim to get the good ending afterwards)
But either way I will post a walkthrough once the game is complete :)

Yup I think it's almost done!
Just got to finish the cgs, GUI and finish coding Xander and dmitris routes! But the scripts are all done so it shouldn't take too long :)
