{ Destiny Movie } [GxB][Otome, life, mystic, free!]

---------------------------------------------------------------
"There was an old myth they say..."
"About the lover's chairs..."
"But who believes in those anymore?"


---------------------------------------------------------------
ImageImageImage
---------------------------------------------------------------

Anna (renamable) and her friends, Bianca and Kat, are going to the movies to celebrate precious summer freedom!
There are plenty of blockbuster hits playing, ranging from mysterious and supernatural to suspenful action movies!
There is an old town myth, an urban legend, of the theater's famed lover chairs...
or rather the pair of seats that have been broken for years.
Was it a coincidence that Anna and her love interest happen to sit in these chairs, or is it destiny?

. . .

The story starts with Anna meeting each of the love interests, then selecting which movie she would like to see.
Each love interest get their own unique movie to watch and enjoy!♡
Then Anna happens to sit next to the love interest by chance, which also happen to be the lover's seats.
In reality, these seats happen to be missing the armrest in between them.
However, the romantic lure around it states that any couple that share these seats on their first date
will ensure an eternity of love and happiness. Of course no one really takes this myth seriously,
but then what explains the mysterious happenings that start after the movie?
Could these chairs actually hold magical properties?!


---------------------------------------------------------------
ImageImageImage
---------------------------------------------------------------

Anna
She is the main character (you)! Also renamable, she is kind and caring.
Anna absolutely loves movies, but I mean, who doesn't?
She is excited to start her summer vacation with her friends in a casual setting,
though she is up for any adventures all the same.


---------------
Image

Drew
What movie could this, clearly, adult guy be going to?
Surely not the little kids' princess movie...?
Against his will he's dragged to that movie and complains, but enjoys it anyway?
He'll act annoyed, but underneath he isn't half bad.
10/10 I recommend.


---------------
Image

Justin
Justin's such a positive guy that Anna's surprised to find out
he's going to see the serious mystery movie.
It really doesn't suit his image, but it gets her curious all the same.
Is there more to him than just his smile?


---------------
Image

Emmett
Why is this sweetie pie going to see the horror movie?
Out of all genres, horror is probably the least favorite for Anna
but she's dragged along by her friends anyway.
Perhaps this protective and sincere guy can save Anna from the horror?!


---------------
Image

Owen
The once childhood friend has fallen from grace.
Anna and Owen used to be so close... but things are not the same.
Because of certain circumstances they lost their close bonds
but Anna doesn't want to forget him entirely.
Can she break through his icy exterior again?


---------------
Image

~ Hidden ~
I can't say much about him, but you'll love this guy!
Who is this mysterious figure?
And what does he have to do with you?


---------------
Image

Bianca
She is one of Anna's closest and most dear friend alongside Kat.
She is the voice of reason in the group, keeping Kat grounded.
That doesn't mean she doesn't have fun though!
Bianca will just ensure that no one gets horribly injured in the process ;-)


---------------
Image

Kat
The third musketeer in the Bianca & Anna dynamic.
She is the life of the group, the soul!
The yin to Bianca's yang.
The chocolate to Anna's vanilla.
You probably get my point.



---------------------------------------------------------------

I will add these as I go ~

---------------------------------------------------------------


♡ Hidden Character!
(^ one of my faves tbh)
♡ Another (but better) personality quiz!
30 Characters!
♡ Around 11-ish endings?




---------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------


Hello everyone!
You may remember me from Destiny Voyage, my first ever game (solo too!)
I feel like I've learned a lot and feel confident enough (after a half a year rest lol) to try again!♡
I'm still a student so I have lots to learn yet, and hope that I can create something that you'll enjoy ~

I cannot complete the game totally on my own (though I try to...) other sources, such as music and unavoidable help will be properly listed and added!
Engine: Ren'py

---------------

This is technically my second game, but that doesn't mean I know what I am doing!
Any advice and criticism is really appreciated!
If you would be so kind as to answer a few questions?

Do you like this idea?
Which route seems most interesting so far? ;-)
What are you expecting out of this game?
Advice / Criticism?

Thank you!

Oh, I loved Destiny Voyage, so I'm super happy to see that you're working on another project!

I like the idea of a movie-themed VN, but I can't make much of a judgement based on what's in the story section. The "famed lover chairs" sound interesting, however since the summary makes the myth sound like common knowledge in the setting of the game, it might be better to include what the myth is in the synopsis so people have a clearer idea of why Anna and her LI sitting in them is significant.

I think the most interesting route, for me, is either Drew or Owen's. Drew because I love princess movies and have dragged people to them in the past and Owen because I am absolutely weak for childhood friend stories.

I adore the GUI in the screenshots you've posted, especially the colours you've used. I think it's gorgeous. My only criticism is that the text box seems a bit busy with the lines, the dots and the { } symbols on the sides (I have no idea what they're called) on top of the transparency. It's just a lot on the eyes for me.

Have you decided on a length for the game yet?

Overall, I really like it. I'll be keeping an eye out for future updates!
I support Mr. Darcy~ <3

Do you like this idea? Yes! Interesting premise here. "Lover's seats" is a fairly common thing, but usually they aren't broken, so I'd really like to see how that plays out.
Which route seems most interesting so far? ;-) I'd have to say Emmett or Owen.
What are you expecting out of this game? Honestly, you haven't provided enough information for me to really have too many expectations. There's no word length, and you've provided an introduction rather than a synopsis. This isn't really a bad thing, but it means that I'm not totally certain what this is going to turn out to be. Does the plot begin with the movie and continue from there, or does it only take place during the time it takes the characters to watch the movie? That's my biggest question.
Advice / Criticism? Like I said above, I don't think I have enough info to make a real judgement so far, although I'm definitely going to be watching this thread.

@DaR

Oh my gosh! I'm so glad that you liked Destiny Voyage, thanks for your interest in this one as well! (^ u ^ ) I hadn't realized the story section was so vague- I just added a little bit more so hopefully that tells a little more about the story! (Sorry for the confusion)
We share the love for the child hood friend I suppose! I knew that I had to include at least one in this game, hehe~ And yes! I hope that the princess movie is to your liking!

It means so much to me that you like the GUI! This was my first time ever (successfully) doing GUI! And I understand your concerns with the textbox, I will try to edit it to make it more easy to read! I think I got a little too carries away with it hehe, too much fun~ { } and i just call these curly brackets? idk if they have a real name??? haha

I'm really terrible at guessing lengths for these games, but I will say that it will be longer that Destiny Voyage! (But not really really long, let's say) haha
Thanks again! ♡
-----------------------------------------------------
@Zelan

Thank you so much for leaving a comment! I promise Emmett and Owen won't disappoint!♡
I added a little more to the summary to hopefully that will tell you more about the story itself! I'm bad at guessing lengths in word count so I want to give really wrong estimations - sorry

I will say that it begins with them watching a movie, a lighthearted scene follows, and then some mysterious stuff involving the movies from earlier. It won't be really long, but hopefully long enough, ya know what I mean? Thanks again for your interest!!

Ah, okay! The story makes a bit more sense now and seems to be pretty cool. Thanks for clearing that up. ^_^ And it's no problem that there's no word count - I was just curious about approximately how long you thought it would be, so a little longer than the movies is a good enough frame of reference.

(Related nerdy fun fact: These {} are called braces. Curly brackets sounds cuter, though. <3)

Hi, UsaBerryHime! It's so exciting - the thread for it is finally here!

♡ Do you like this idea?
I think you already know I do. ;) The romantic myth, the various movies, the theme of destiny - I love all of this.

♡ Which route seems most interesting so far? ;-)
Hmm...the hidden one, definitely. After all, he's a complete mystery.

♡ What are you expecting out of this game?
A fun, lighthearted, sweet romance. :) Am I right? Oh, and I imagine I'll learn more about the boys (and possibly the MC), which will make them all the more endearing to me. Right now, Emmett interests me most since he's called a sweetie pie and yet likes horror movies. And, of course, the mystery man intrigues me to no end.

♡ Advice / Criticism?
Don't work too hard and have fun! Make sure you treat yourself to something nice when you finish it.

This is going to turn out really fun, I can tell. Good luck, UsaBerryHime! I'll be supporting you every step of the way.
Beauty and the War (X Playing Pieces)

I'M SO EXCITED FOR EVERYTHING YOU'RE RELEASING AAAAH

♡ Do you like this idea?
YES. The plot is very unique honestly, a lot of your plots are very "familiar"? but at the same time unique as its own.

♡ Which route seems most interesting so far? ;-)
Hmm...the hidden one, definitely because i love daRK mySTERiouS boYS. Drew and Owen are hotties, so I mean...I'm into that.

♡ What are you expecting out of this game?
Oh man I'm expecting a lot from you after Destiny Voyage and Stolen Destiny!!!!!!!! Kidding, but ofc I'm super excited for the plot generally, and the CG's. The artwork has gotten super nice since your first VN.

♡ Advice / Criticism?
Don't stress yourself out over this--or any of your projects. I mean you're doing great so far, and just pace yourself so you won't get bored and feel like you want to drop your projects. Leave some time for yourself, let yourself chill a little yanno, and I don't have any criticism so far...looking forward to it!

This looks like a lot of fun! Certainly cute, at least.

♡ Do you like this idea?
I do! I like the concept of knowing who you're technically "dating" from the get go (similar to Amnesia: Memories ahaha) and trying to build a relationship from there. It's refreshing!

♡ Which route seems most interesting so far? ;-)
Owen (laughs). Only because I'm a sucker for the childhood friend trope. I'm sure that there's more to him, though, and I really look forward to learning about him!

♡ What are you expecting out of this game?
Hmm seeing as I haven't been in the visual novel scene in over 3 years, I don't really have much to say! I do expect to have a cute and enjoyable experience, though!

♡ Advice / Criticism?
None come to mind! Nothing of particular use, at least. All I can say is that I look forward to seeing where this goes!

Do you like this idea?
Yes! It's simple but still seems super cute and fun so I'm all for it.

Which route seems most interesting so far?
I like Owen's route the best so far, although I might change my mind later when more info comes out! (Drew is a strong second contender)

What are you expecting out of this game?
While the basic premise is simple, the routes and characters seem pretty different, so I'm excited for/expecting unique, cute routes with all the romantic interests. I'm also quite excited for the mystery guy as well :0

Advice / Criticism?
None so far! I'll definitely be checking back in on this thread later though, so maybe I'll have something when more info comes out. Great work so far :)

Ahh! How have I missed commenting on this? I've been watching your progress eagerly on Twitter, so have to comment here now :D

Do you like this idea?

I love it! It sounds really different. I like how you're bringing in the kind of thing that most towns have, some kind of myth or superstition about local things that lead to love (eg, lovers hang outs etc). It's really clever!

Which route seems most interesting so far?

I can't decide between Owen and Justin!

What are you expecting out of this game?
As much fun as Destiny Voyage :D Great characters too!

Advice / Criticism?
None, just keep doing what you're doing!

I'm so excited about this. I absolutely loved Destiny Voyage, so can't wait to see how this turns out :)

Woop woop! Let's get this going....


♡ Do you like this idea?

I'm expecting it to be tons of fun, because that's how it looks - fun!
