Kiss Me Not [BxB - Romance/Fantasy/KN]

#1 Post by audrenes » Wed Jun 01, 2016 3:50 am

Image
Marius is a prince whose curse can't be solved by True Love's Kiss. If he kisses anyone other than his True Love, he’s doomed to fall into a death-like coma. Longing for companionship beyond the loneliness inside of his castle, he follows his sister to a school in the neighboring kingdom not expecting much but ending up getting more than he bargained for.

Romance / Slice-of-Life / Realistic Fantasy
Updates when possible.
--

Warnings.
Mentions of past abusive relationships. Mentions of depression and anxiety.
This is subject to change after it's beta read. Other than that, this is supposed to be pure fluff of two awkward boys trying to romance each other.

Setting.
Image
(click on the image for close-ups!)
The story takes place in the Seafrey Region of the Occiden Monarchy. The school opened up a few years ago and as part of a continental treaty, each monarchy agreed to send in a representative to assess the effectiveness of a public education system to determine if they should establish one in their own domain or not. The Kingdom of Anders offered a scholarship to a promising student around the time the treaty was being finalized. Antonio Rendon, a commoner in the Bridgeport Region earned his scholarship and is currently training to become a guard. His work ethic has brought him to being the top of his class as well as one of Anders' pride. Prince Nelson, Anders' Crown Prince, would argue otherwise even though he ranks third. Princess Selene volunteered to represent the Solis Monarchy and currently ranks second in her class. Later on, Prince Marius, Future Successor of the Solisian Monarchy enrolled as well in order to increase his chances of his curse being cured and to alleviate his loneliness.

The Monarchy of Hyalus opted to work on its own education system, trusting on the success rate of Occiden's previous projects. Prince Siegfried of the Occiden Monarchy had planned to attend the school himself, but due to Eosos's Fall, he has chosen to continue with home tutoring since the flexibility of it allows him to tend to the concerns of his people.

Production.
- Art and story will all be made by me.
- Music will be by Chris Thurman and funded through commission work.
- Completed game will be available on itch.io.

--

Risks & Challenges.
- Programming still gives me a headache, but I'm still up for a challenge.
- I get really busy with school, so progress will be slow until mid-May.

--

Goals.
- Since this is my official entry for Yaoi Jam, I hope to finish by August 1!!
- -> I couldn't finish in time for the jam. Hope to release in Summer 2017.
- I'm aiming for 10-25k words-- pretty short and sweet, considering how big I like to go for my projects.
- -> First draft is completed with 25096 words!
- I would really love to have an OST for this.
- -> I'm tight on money, though; so we'll see how this works out.
- -> I found a musician!
- -> I'm about half-way through meeting my music budget, so I would appreciate it if you would commission me or help in circulating that post!

--

Notes.
- I also said I'd only write 10-25k words for Swan Lake, but I ended up doing more. So if I expand, I will probably fight myself. My goodness.
- -> Well. Ever since I decided to add more info, I increased the word count by about 10k. Honestly should have seen this coming. I am fighting myself as I type.
- This will be pay-as-you-want. AKA, technically free, but I would really appreciate if you donate some money since I need to for reasons as explained by my commission post.
- I really thought about making this a choice-based game with multiple ends, buuuut I have time constraints and I'm a one-woman team.
- I'm basing the guard program on high school JROTC, so if any of y'all have any info on that, I would love to know it.
- This takes place in the same universe as Sunrise Revolution! There will be cameos in each game because I love interconnectivity.
- -> Chronologically, Kiss Me Not takes place about four years before the start of Sunrise Revolution, so I'm focusing on finishing this project first.
- I'll be looking for beta readers once I finish editing! Please message me if you're interested.

--

Questions.
1. The jam lasts for a month, but if this was expanded beyond that, would you like to have choices and have multiple endings?
2. What do you look forward to the most?
3. Any additional feedback?

--

Closing Note.
This has been fun to work on so far, and considering that school is pretty much wrapping up for the summer now, I hope to be even faster when working on this! I'll have an art stream set for this VN some time during the week!

Thank you for your support and for looking at this thread!

SHAKES FIST HOW DO YOU WRITE SO FAST I SWEAR

1. The jam lasts for a month, but if this was expanded beyond that, would you like to have choices and have multiple endings?
HMM. The thing is that if you planned things to be a KN, suddenly turning it into a VN will require far too much editing, unless you write a KN using a VN plan, ie. writing out one path of a VN to completion. I mean, I'd love to see this as a VN if you plan it to be one, but I don't want you to hurt your project if it wasn't meant to be one, yanno?

2. What do you look forward to the most?
HOW THE RELATIONSHIP DEVELOPS!! And not even just romantically. I love the cast already, and your description of Nelson has me laughing. I also love the Queen. SHE DOES HER BEST. Also Antonio and Selene are quickly climbing to my "I love them as my children" list so there's that. Pls let me have Marius-Antonio-Selene friendship moments

3. Any additional feedback?
None so far, considering the barebone information |D I'd like it if Nelson isn't going to be presented as 2D villain though? Or at least, have something explained that isn't sudden exposition in the end or something.

"why do you write like you're running out of time why do you write like you need it to survive--" is literally the first thought when I read that first line lol

I wanted to present it with the idea of "hey listen!! you have to work at it and make the right decisions to end up and stay in a healthy relationship and stuff like that !!!!" but I don't have enough time...................

THE QUEEN DOES DO HER BEST.

Also the scene I'm working on right now is supposed to be a Marius- Antonio-Selene friendship moment, so that does happen! Selene's role in the story is supposed to be the friend that Gets Stuff Moving and Done, so she has to do a lot of pushing to get Marius and/or Antonio to stop walking in circles.

Nelson is supposed to be the Worst (before I gave him a name, I put him down as Douchebag McGee), but I still don't want him to be a 2D villain. The best I can do now is write him like the dudes that have annoyed me in the past, but maybe add more Depth? Hmmm... this is something to think about.

Thank you for the feedback!!

Choices and multiple endings if the project gets extended? Yaaass! But 'bonus scenes' that are choice based but do not affect the ending could be good as well, maybe?
I'm looking forward to discover what Nelson's curse is! And of course, looking forward to how the relationship develops. I'm a sucker for fluff with awkward boys...
As for additional feedback, I love Selene already.
Good luck with development!

I'm glad that you're enjoying seeing the progress so far! It's kind of hard trying to drop hints as to what Nelson's curse is without giving it away or just dumping it all on one spot, but I'm gonna try anyway lol. AND YES, AWKWARD BOY TO BOY ROMANCE RUNS RAMPANT ONCE IT ACTUALLY STARTS. I'm trying to write Selene as Best Girl, Best Sister, Best Friend here so I'm glad you like her already!!

Thank you for your support!!

Usually, I don't update this topic in the beginning of the week, but hey. I'm just really jazzed, okay. And I'd like to get the funding gears grinding early.

Aside from editing the art a little bit, I’ve found a musician for the project! His name is Chris Thurman and we’re super hyped to work with each other to make this soundtrack a thing. But, I need the money so I can properly pay him for his services. To achieve that, I’m currently open for art commissions! I would appreciate it if you would reblog that post to help it get it around.

Because I’ll be putting money into making a soundtrack and getting beta-readers/players, the game may not be released by August 1st. Despite this, I’ll still work on the majority of the development during Yaoi Jam.

Thank you for your support!

About the questions:
1)
As someone that (usually) has no interest in KNs: YES
YES, I would ave a LOT of interest in choices. There don't even have to be many choices and 3+ endings, but doing something is always very interesting for me.
2)
How to solve the whole "True Love kiss" dilema. I mean, I am not sure how you will deal with it, but if I were Marius, even IF I fall in love and it gets returned, I would be constantly questioning myself, if it is "true enough". This problem sounds really dramatic and tense.
3)
Beautiful and unique art, interesting characters, - as said - interesting story concept.
I will try to play it, once it is done (disclaimer: as mentioned, i don't like KNs, so I might not do it in the end ._.) and if you will continue to work on it and make it an interactive experience, then I would totally be on board with that. It sounds like a very interesting twist on the whole Fairytale Kiss idea.

I thought about having flavor choices, but I dunno. It didn't make sense to me to have something in there to put in a thinly veil attempt of "gameplay" when it doesn't affect the story at all. It would have been interesting, but the way things are going, it may stay as a KN? I'm glad that you've expressed interest on this even though it's usually not up your alley though!

Aaaactually. About that. I do explore Marius' anxieties about being kissed or not and how other people may feel about it, both that do matter and those who don't. I can't say anything more, though. >__>

Thank you! I'm glad that you like the art!

But yeah, I really wanted to play with the whole, "Look they kissed! And they haven't even properly talked to each other but some how they're each other's true love?!!! Happy End." thing I've seen go down in fairy tales. A lot... of times.

Thank you anyway for your feedback and support, I hope that if you do decide to play this that you'll like it!

- -> M: “Um… >__>…….” Stay in your own lane. Stay in your own lane. Stay in your own lane.
- Extra Art
- -> I put the Trio in modern clothing. Because I can.
- -> Elias likes to read.
- -> First version of the album art! More info below.

- - -> There are two more, but they’re really simple BGs since they’ll appear once or twice.

- CGs

- - -> I’ve decided to not touch the gui until I finish editing the script into coding.
- -> Progress
- - -> I’m about 60% through it? (According to the side scroll on notepad)
- - -> This is just my first sweep of coding, though. It’s mainly adding directional cues, modifying the script that’s compatible with RenPy, and changing some of the words here and there.
- - -> I may have to go back and add in more directional cues, because I’ve been focusing on the other stuff…
- - -> Second sweep will be adding the images, bgm, and sfx in.
- Other Stuff

- -> To fund it, I need to meet my budget, so I’m open for commissions!
