SLEEPLESS [Otome, Dystopian][GXB]--HELLO 2015!

#1 Post by cathsplat » Sun Jan 26, 2014 2:45 pm

Update 6/2/2015
Working back on the plot.
Update 1/11/2014
All main character profiles are completed!
We need to finish our final project after this, so there will be no big update for a while.
Hopefully, we'll be active again by the end of January 2015 :)


==============================================================================================================================================
Image
Synopsis:
The city has never been more than the Casino City, until the day Mayra and her father entered the bloody tunnel. Soldiers turned into killers, people turned into corpses, and they were next. But when a stranger in a suit came to the rescue, Mayra was forced into a world where even more humans were killed. They were survivors, safe from the soldiers, yet trapped among each others.

Slowly, becoming monsters.


==============================================================================================================================================
Story:
On their way to her mother’s place at the neighboring city, Mayra and her father were stopped by the soldiers before forcefully escorted into the highway tunnel. Hundreds of corpses welcomed them, and rifles were aimed to their heads. Seconds before they were about to join the corpses, a stranger came and took them to a safe hideout, an old war bunker underground, where the rest of the survivors were.

They thought they were safe, but one by one they transformed into a monster, and a new rule began: they were to kill whoever turned into one, even if it means killing themselves. With this new rule, Mayra struggled to keep what's left of the human inside her as she witnessed people killed and be killed. Questions rose without answers, and they battled against time to find a way out, before losing their humanity forever.




Exylon City:
When you hear Exylon city, you think of the casinos, the night clubs, fine wine and beautiful ladies. The ultimate entertainment fantasy. But it is well known that Exylon is also respected for its universities and research facilities that reside at the southern part of the city. Amazingly, it is a far more peaceful residential area for students and lecturers, compared to the hype across the city. Exylon is truly the dream for students who want to get the best of both worlds.

Hello~!
This is a little background art I did some time last month~
One of the spots inside the bunker~^^
This is where the volunteers in charge of security sit and wait for survivors to arrive.
It’s a corridor that leads into the main part of the bunker, so people passes this spot whenever they get in or out.
In our light novel, this background is shown a couple of times.

Changes on the design might occur during the development of the VN~

[QUESTIONS]
=> Just for fun, who do you think is the most interesting character so far?

==============================================================================================================================================


The project is in progress, eaaaarly state really and it's going to be released in a light novel form first before the game in Renpy~^^
Currently we have no coders and music composer, but the game development is still a long way to go so our current priority is in the novel.

If you're interested to help as a beta-reader, it will be very appreciated! [Update: The work is still in progress, but we will need beta testers in the future, so thankyou for anyone who's interested~^^]


More posts on the characters will be updated~

Sorry for any grammar mistakes TTvTT (please do nudge me if you found any!) and thanks for your visit!

Artwork looks stunning and premise is interesting. What kind of mood is this story supposed to be? Presumably a dark and gritty one considering the premise.

Also, if you're looking for a programmer for the eventual game I'd be happy to volunteer. PM what you have planned (or thinking about).

Thankyou :D And yes, the mood of the story is supposed to be dark. And yeeeees thank you for your offer! But honestly, there isn't much to tell about the game for now, except that it's going to have 6 different routes with 12 endings and unlockable CGs *if possible*. But I'll let you know when we're ready to start the game~! Nice to meet you!

I'm glad she sounds that way to you, it's pretty much what we expected Mayra to be~^^ Thanks for dropping by again!
