Rin is a high school girl and self-proclaimed misanthropist • a person with a general hatred, dislike, or distrust of humankind.
One night, she noticed a black ring had appeared around her neck.
A shadow was behind her… and when it stepped out from the darkness, it became a boy with a sinister smile.
“That is the mark of a shinigami.”
From that day forward, Rin began to see omens of death around her classmate.
When a human’s lifespan reaches zero, there is no other option … put a blade through their heart and rip out their soul.
This is the story of the girl that became Death’s goddess.
Rin • She is a high school girl who is asocial and hateful towards others. She is a misanthropist, but she can easily hide her feelings from others with her innocent look and a fake smile.
Ink • This boy appears to Rin only when night has fallen. He is affectionate towards her and professes that they are one in the same, but who is he, really…? Is he really worthy of her trust?
Issun • A classmate that Rin often admires from afar. He is quiet and always seen alone, though is missing from the classroom often from unknown reasons. Some think he’s simply a delinquent who doesn't care about attendance. The only classmate that Rin does not hate, she feels that their isolation gives them something in common.
??? • [I only recently decided to give her a sprite, so for now I've only completed a sketch] A girl who always tries to befriend Rin. She’s outgoing, talkative, and popular with other students. Rin hasn’t bothered remembering her name or face.
• I started this game almost two years ago. I was very close to finishing it but did not release it due to not being very happy with how it turned out. I then abandoned it for almost a year. Now I'm back to working on it. I'm revamping the story line and endings to reflect what I had originally had in mind for this game, and it's very close to completion now so I thought I would make a thread for it.
• There will be three endings. This is horror, not a romance game - it is only labeled otome because of the female protagonist.
• This game will have violence and mention of suicide, murder, death, and sexual implications between minors. Therefor, if you are easily triggered by those things or are under the age of 16, I would recommend you not play this game.
• Sprites 90%
-Finish sprite for Rin's mother
-Finish sprite for ???
• CG 0%
-I have not yet decided if there will be CGs. If so, there will be very few (about 3-4)
• Script 95%
• Music/background 100%
Expected release date : Late February or Early March 2014
Feedback is welcome, though at this point I won't be changing the art as I want to release it ASAP so please only criticize on the story/game itself. Thanks!
