Cash vs Yandere [Survival|Black Comedy|GxB|GxG] - Up: Horai

#1 Post by Coren » Tue Jan 20, 2015 1:32 pm

Alright, so while I do have my hands full with college, Mica: Apoptosis and Crimson Rafflesia, I recently realised that I'm simply incapable of producing enough brain juice to work constantly on a huge project unless I have a separate small 'inspiration' project to go along with it. Since Ribbon of Green, RE: Prince of Nigeria and Six Rules have already been released, I decided to start on a new little niche.

You can sort of consider this a sequel to RE: Prince of Nigeria, because it's going to be just as serious. Which means not very serious at all.

Image

STORY
I'm in college now. A new, fascinating environment in a new country, away from all the baggage of my past...
... Except that two of my friends came along, too. And they have this trait of being just a little mentally unstable.
Oh, what a bother...


Midori "Cash" Kashuu is an Economics freshman with a bright future, but now she is literally fearing for her life. Two boys, both her childhood friends, just happened to end up in the same university as her, and both of them are completely, utterly, and hopelessly in love with her. Which isn't so bad. Except they both have this bad habit of stalking, murder and general creepiness, which involves cutting up any boys she talks to, each other if she ever shows one of them just a bit more affection than the other, and even her if she ever tries to drift away from them...

Geez, and I was hoping to survive college, too.

You don’t want to die just yet. It’ll suck to get killed so early. You have a good life in front of you. You want to get good grades, find a job, maybe a boyfriend or a girlfriend. And you can’t go to the police. The only way to survive is to keep them happy. And that means not to talk to other people too much. That also means to show them equal and undivided attention, without showing a little more favour to either of them.

It’s even harder than it sounds. Any misstep could mean your death. You don’t really care, but you probably would rather not die if you could help it.

Characters

Cash (Midori Kashuu) (18)
Image
(The above is concept art, not the final sprite.)
Preliminary design
Cash is a first-year Economics student at the prestigious University of Carmentree. She enjoys eating, sleeping, money and The Wall Street Journal. Her 'friends' may or may not want to kill her. She doesn't really care, but she'd rather not die, because that'll be, well, kinda undesirable.

Dalen Proctor (20)
Image
Dalen was a schoolyard bully that our protagonist Cash knew from grade school, who has reformed his bullying ways and become a fairly decent guy. Maybe. He spent two years before going to college serving the army as a combat medic, and he wears a lab coat everywhere and claims to love helping people. He has a crass demeanor, is pretty impatient, and still spends quite a lot of time throwing snarky comments at Cash. He doesn’t seem too bad, but you might want to be careful when treading around him if you want to live. He has a bit of an uncanny interest in blood. And the colour red. And the effects of different drugs on the human body.

Juris Lowe (18)
Image
Juris is a polite, mild-mannered boy, and a first-year Law student. He has a refined personality, and has been Cash's friend since pre-school. He gets along decently well with Dalen... as long as Cash treads carefully, that is.

Lilian Owen (19)
Horai's cousin and Cash's friend, extremely beautiful and sweet to a fault. She studies Music.

Horai Owen (15)
Image
Just some stupid high school kid who likes to pop by once in a while. She loves princes and giving money away. That's why Cash likes her.
She is the younger sister of Cash’s dormmate. She has a part time job as an online writer, and rumour says that she once lost $10,000 to a Nigerian prince, though she never confirmed or denied it.

Aldrich "Rich" Hastley (17)
Horai's friend, who wants to study Computer Science.

Aaron Hastley (25)
Rich's older brother, a scowling local librarian.

Yohan Anryens (18)
Cash's economics classmate, and a boy who just never gives up.

—-

FEATURES
* 15+ Death Endings
* 3 Good Endings
* 1 True Ending
* You can get a boyfriend while you’re at it
* Or a girlfriend
* The yanderes won’t be happy, though.

This game is pretty much going to be some kind of ‘reverse-otome’ survival game, in the sense that you have to interact with the boys, but not to date them, instead to make sure that you give them equal attention such that they feel sufficiently appreciated not to murder your ass. It’s going to be a bloody Friday.

Can I get
Cash's dismembered body being cached in one of the guy's locker
ending? or
Dalen using Cash's dead body as his personal cadaver
? is this game not really that extreme hahahahah.

Juris Low sounds like Juris Law.... but then you here Juris a lot of times in the field of law. I even ended up thinking that it's a legit name until I saw the (name pending) beside it.

Haha I'm not even putting any effort into NOT thinking of ridiculously punny names. I'm even debating the name "Justice", lol.

(Dalen Proctor is "Doctor", hint hint)
(Cash's name is literally "green cash".)

And yeah, I guess it can get pretty bloody. Cos yay, black comedy. :P And like RE: Prince of Nigeria it's not going to be particularly realistic (or Cash would've just gone to the freaking police).

OH MAI GAWD THIS IS A BRILLIANT IDEA.

Ahem. I am waiting so excitedly for this. I am hoping to see gorefest, of course, and sarcasm like in Re:PoN ;)

Oh my goodness, this idea sounds absolutely amazing. A great twist on your average yandere story, I am actually quite excited about this! Also Cash is an amazing concept for a protag all I instantly wanted to do was doodle her with shades with the text 'cash money cash money cash money'

Now for something slightly more productive. As far as name suggestions go, my immediate thought was 'Money Can't Buy Me Love'.
I wish you the best of luck with this, and would really really like to see it finished. ;w;

AHHHHHHHHHH this looks so cool!!! I love the idea and I was laughing all the way while reading through the plot and the puns in the characters' name. Gotta love black comedies! I think the title seems fine, pretty eye-catching actually and Cash looks really cute! Most of my sentences are ending in exclamation marks so I'm clearly excited!! I would love to play this if you plan to go through with it!!! :D :D :D

- The Yandere Among Us
:lol:

I hope this Cash girl would be as badass as Bigby with that title.

I like how she seems to be 100% aware of her friends' psychopathic tendencies, almost like keeping them at bay is a chore. With a synopsis like that, I'd probably call this the "Long Live The Queen: Deadly College Romance Simulator".

___(n) 1: The averse reaction to stillness, silence and/or state of helplessness.

Thanks for the support guys! :P I think I'll stick with Cash vs Yandere as the main title, but one of the above as a subtitle. Which of these do you guys think would be a good idea?

- Cash vs Yandere: Money Can't Buy Love
- Cash vs Yandere: My Yandere Friends Won't Leave Me Alone!
- Cash vs Yandere: Etc.

Just finished Cash's sprite - might post it up soon!

I also vote for 'My Yandere Friends won't Leave me Alone!' XD

EDIT: On second thought, maybe the word 'yandere' could be replaced with a synonym since it might be too repetitive in the title. However, I can't think of any synonym that would better fit right now so the it can be left like it is.

Oh wow! You did Ribbon of Green and RE: Prince of Nigeria! I didn't even realize this at first! ;)
You have my utmost respect. :) Hope you go all the way with this idea.
