Win the princess - LOOKING FOR BETA TESTERS :)

Have you ever dreamt about being a princess?
Well, as you will see, it isn't wonderful all the time. Or as amazing, astonishing and fabulous
Image
Once upon a time in a small kingdom, a king decided her daughter should marry someone to make the kingdom stronger. What a surprise, she - as a young emancipated woman - refused to do it. And this is where it all begins... King, with his secret passion for gambling, announce a competition. Brave men will accomplish four tasks and the winner will marry the princess. But you, as the main award of the competition, have got another plan. In a disguise of man, you want to win and prove the king you are able to reign the kingdom by yourself.

Thank you for reading. Feel free to express your opinion about the story, sprites, name of the visual novel etc. I don´t bite :wink: and I´m glad for every comment.
I know my english isn´t so brilliant as the english of most of you (it isn´t my native language) but I create and write it with all my heart :wink:

Here are some questions - not obligatory, just for an inspiration :wink:
1) Which character will you pursue first (if any)?
2) Who do you think the mysterious man is? And who would you like him to be?
3) Is the topic interesting for you? What are you the most curious about?
4) Any questions, ideas, notes etc.

I love a good gender bender story. It will be interesting to see what kind of competitions the competitors will undertake. Do any of the competitions involve gambling? Will there be mini games or just choices? I like the detail in the hair of the princess. I love the style of her mustache when she's in her guy form. When I see the guys' noses it makes me think of snakes(Just the way my mind works). Also the princess' side profile reminds me of a cyclops. If you are going for a mythical people kinda vibe that would be a neat twist on the story. I don't know if you are or not since you will be posting character profiles in the future. Good luck!

Thanks for stopping by :)
No, there will be no gambling in the competition itself. But if you consider he set his own daughter as an award, it may be is some kind of gambling :D
I don´t dare to involve a mini games as this is my first visual novel so answer to your question is - choices.
I´m glad you comment my drawing. About the noses - now I see it too :D or it could be turtle´s nose :) Princess has got very accentuated forehead, that´s true. I can tell, the princess will be expressed in the game only from profile so it´s up to player if he/ she will imagine her as a cyclop :D May be during the creating the game I´ll change my opinion but for now, there will be only her profile. Anyway, mythical people are good idea but now I don´t plan to have any in this story.

The idea is awesome, I just hope she would have a real opportunity to win and that it won't mean not getting any guy.

I agree with Katta, I hope she has a chance to really win her own hand, ha ha. That would be an epic ending. I look forward to seeing how this turns out.

Edit: if you need a proofreader send me a PM.

The proofreading has just started! Well it doesn´t mean that all writting is done - it really isn´t :lol: but it´s another (and very important) step in makeing this VN so I would like to thank ColaCat who bravely accepted the challenge of correcting my script.

And to daijinahito - thanks for the support :)

I was more than happy to read the script for you. And a word to anyone who's not sure whether to play this when it comes out; so far the writing is very good!

I have started to write the first task and also some coding is done.
I put here some examples of the pages from the game. Just one note - the name of MC depends on user so for these examples, I used "Sharane" however you can name her like you wish.
