The Curse [GxB] [VN] [Magic School life]

#1 Post by Nayara NightRoo » Tue Sep 03, 2013 11:55 am

The Curse

Plot
C.A.S. (Cast A Spell) is an academy for young future witches and wizards. Not everybody can be accepted: only the firstborn of each family inherits magic, and they have to demostrate they deserve it; if they do, magic guides them to their true love before they became sixteen, and if they don't, magic and the knowledge they have of it abandon them and go with the second child.
But there are two families whose firstborns suffer a worse punishment: if they don't kiss their true love before their sixteenth birthday, they die... Why's that? Well, that's a long story...
Madeleine is the firstborn of one of that unlucky families, and she is almost sixteen. Will she be able to find her true love? Or will she die?

Ah, I wish you did the writing and coding first, so that you could have a demo sooner. It looks pretty fun, and I'm looking forward to what you come up with. Is most of it in class, where you get to do all sorts of magical things? Or is the magic just a premise and background for a pure romance?

Thank you! I'm looking forward to finish it. :wink: Well, in principle magic was just a background, but I'm interested in your opinion about the matter. Do you think I should include magical scenes in class?

Oh, and I'll be without Internet for about a week... so I won't update this page until I'm able to do so. Sorry guys. But I'll be still working on the VN, so don't worry.

This looks interesting ^^ Just curious though does the family emblem in the character profiles got anything to do with their magic? Or will this be explain in the story?

Looking forward on your progress on the game:D

Well, someway, the family emblem represent their power and their special spells... it'll be explained more widely in the story, anyway. :wink:

The sprite seems to be a shared resource, I suppose?

It is, for sure. I'm not skilled enough to do my own art, and I didn't want to wait until someone offered me help. Maybe in the next VN.

Thank you!! Well, it's my first VN, so I wanted to keep it... "easy", someway. ;)
