"You are cordially invited to the Annual Valdemar Halloween Extravaganza. Two weeks of luxury await you.
Let’s see if you can keep up the masquerade…”


"Introducing Our Venerable Host, Erik Valdemar!"
Image
"Well, I’ve already done so many iconic roles that it’s only fitting I be the other Erik at least once."
Sorry girls, you don’t get to romance me. It goes against my honour as host~
These parties have begun grow tedious, but I daresay these four may just make things… interesting.


Our lovely Miss Archer(Protag):
Image

"If there’s good food, I’m there!"

Good with luck, but perhaps not so good with men. Maybe her luck’s about to change…

The bashful Mr Wolf:
Image

"All that matters is that you try your best…"

A shy young man who sky-rocketed into the limelight thanks to his musical talent.

The Dashing Count:
Image
"A lady shouldn’t have to do manual labour."

A flirtatious gentleman who is both witty and level-headed.

Our Competitive Mr Bandages:
Image
"I play to win"

They say he’s cold, but he’s really short-tempered and brash, always getting his bandages in a twist.

Progress:
Script: 100% 85000+
Coding: 25%
Sprites: 100%
CG's: ~ unsure :P %
BG's/music: (will be using free resources) Tyler Thompson +


Halloween Otome is a visual novel that will incorporate the use of mini-games (optional)
This will be the first non commercial Visual novel which our team Synokoria (corynth and I) will be hopefully releasing.

We're aiming for a demo out by Halloween at least (if not the first beta)~
I'll be updating images as we go along

Would you play this? Do any of the characters catch your eye? Miss Archer will also be re-nameable

Protag wins an invite to a most exclusive and sought out Halloween getaway.
What she doesnt realise is, that its far from relaxing. The Halloween getaway turns out to be a annual game hosted for the rich and famous and every contestant is thrown into miscellaneous groups, challenged over the course of ~ 2 weeks.


and introducing Kippy~ Synokoria's mascot. He's a 6 winged cerberus

That last count is pretty outdated. I don't have the exact number but it's a bit over 10 000 at 25%.

Not bad considering we only started around two weeks ago. This is intended to be a two month project with a deadline of 31 October, but we will extend that deadline if we can't get everything done.

Ooh, this looks promising. Looking forward to it. The fact that you're 60% done with sprites is a really good sign, good work!

Oh this sounds like it will be a fun novel to play through.
I really like how the MC looks and the fact that she will be re-nameable is always a plus for me :D
As for the guys, both of them look great but I think the count stands out a little more to me.
I'm defiantly going to be keeping an eye on this and wish you all the best with finishing it!

i've got the base of the last 2 characters done as well. the thing slowing me down is the multiple arm poses and therefore the stupid layers of clothes over the top. and because the characters have two outfits so far...well...the number of layers.
Im still hoping for an easier way OTL

we will do our best ^^! I think Mr bandages bring a lot to the novel~ his character is the easiest to write for >_>'. Now i just need to finish his outfits....

This actually had me smiling ((: I love the character designs (the ones that you have so far, I'm looking forward to Mr. Bandages').

Although... what's the plot for this? How's the gameplay going to be?

im not sure what i ca say without giving too much away ^^' - plus corynth is better story teller of the two of us (i'm terrible - thats why i just stick to the art)
all i can say is -

Protag wins an invite to a most exclusive and sought out Halloween getaway.
What she doesnt realise is, that its far from relaxing. The Halloween getaway turns out to be a annual game hosted for the rich and famous and every contestant is thrown into miscellaneous groups, challenged over the course of ~ 2 weeks.


It's a straightforward multipath otome with at least 3 endings. The minigames are optional in the game play but can be switched off.
hope i answered your question enough ._. - otherwise i'll direct you to corynth ^^'

I'm not sure whether to call it short either, because although we started off 2 weeks ago saying "lets make a short simple VN", its definitely expanded exponentially ^^'

Yeah simple... We can never keep it simple^^'

Coding is now at 15% roughly because the first of 6 minigames has been implemented.

Interesting...So far I can see that Mr.Bandage's appearence as the most dashing one hehe O(∩_∩)O I've been wondering about what happened to The Keeper whenever I saw Bic but I guess this is the answer lol Nice to see you both move on to other projects and being determined about it ╮(╯▽╰)╭

Mr. Bandages is love, 'nough said. Glad to see you guys are working hard and hope you meet your completion date goals ^^ The game looks like the standard Otome fair but its nothing wrong with that, espically if it's an experiment in seeing how much work you can pump out in a limited amount of days.
