Worlds Without You [BxB][Comedy/Tragedy][Yaoi Jam]

#1 Post by femslashfatale » Sun Jun 19, 2016 5:59 pm

Started for Yaoi Jam 2016.

SYNOPSIS

Vit Oreo is an average guy attending college. He's earnest, kind, and friendly, except for the times when he's self-centered and insensitive. But he tries, which is better than nothing.
One normal day, his best friend, Eric, goes missing completely out of the blue. Police investigation yields nothing-- it's as if Eric simply disappeared into thin air. Vit, of course, is devastated at the loss of his closest pal. What's a guy to do?

Take a stress swim in your pool and touch the bottom, only to come up in a different reality.



CHARACTERS

Image
Vit Oreo (18)
An air-headed asshole with good intentions. Best buds with Eric, who he met when he started college. It was like love at first sight! Platonically. (Don't worry, he'll realize soon enough). Do your best to lead him down a good path!

Image
Eric Crawford (19)
Introverted and non-confrontational, but has a confident streak. He loves his friends and still has an active Neopets account. Thinks Vit is a good guy.

Image
Marie Mackenzie (18)
A normal, girl-next-door type. Has a crush on Vit.

Image
Priya (18?)
Her dream is to have a robot fortune-telling booth made based off of her likeness. Friends with Marie & Eric.

Image
Kiara Oreo (12)
Vit's little sister. She "ships" Vit and Marie, which is only left alone because she's 12.

1. Does the synopsis interest you?
It sounds super interesting! I'm curious to see what's in store for Vit when he's in the other world.

2. Favorite character?
I can't say at the moment, since there's only little said about them, but they sound interesting and I would love to see how they'll be played out.

3. Thoughts on the art?
It looks super cute!!

4. What other information do you want to know?
BACKSTORIES. I'm a sucker for backstories.

5. Would you play the game when it's complete?
Sure!! I'm hoping to play as many games as I can from YaoiJam before school starts for me, so I'm hyped.

Good luck on your project!!!

I've added a bit more to the synopsis for clarification. It's not just one world!
Thanks for the comment. I'm excited for Kiss Me X!

Thanks for the excitement, I'm glad you like what's presented so far!!
My friend, Leo, is definitely a really great artist. You should go check out more of their art at birdpaladin.tumblr.com or twitter.com/peachtartprince!! :D Shameless promotion
About what you wanna know... you'll find out when you play the game? Probably. That info might find its way in there somehow. Who knows.

Thanks! :'D I'm definitely gonna check our their art~
Oh, yeah, sorry orz;; I wasn't sure if that question was like "things you want to know now" or "things you hope are revealed in the game" so I just went with the latter. =w=;;

Oops! Didn't mean for that to come off so cold, it was more of a ~ooo who knows what'll happen~ response, haha. Either's fine! The question is ambiguous to ask both. :3

It's gonna be hype. >:3
(Now that I've seen that people are interested, maybe I'll add more in about him having neopets LOL)

Here's a sneak peek of some sprites + a possible text box + a WIP background! Writing this made my heart explode. Expect lots of cute fluff.

Expect a lot of that, then. Lots of self-indulgent fluff happens (all the better to contrast with the sads ohohohoho)

ANYWAY UPDATES!

- Plot/choices are 100% outlined
- First draft is at about 20% completion
- Sprites (again, drawn by peachtartprince @twitter, go check em out) are 80% done.
- 2/6 BGs sketched out

Yooo so, the deadline for Yaoi Jam was on Sunday, and I'm not done.

Progress update:
Outline: 100%
Script: 60%
Sprites: 90%
GUI: 50%
BGs: 20%
Music: 0%

Realistically, I can see myself finishing within 3-4 weeks more? That's a vague estimate, though. But I will definitely finish!

I leave you with some cool cool AU sprites.

You should really come back to this game and finish it!

It's cute, and the story plot is very nice, I want to see it finished! And I bet I'm not alone in this ;)

Wow, it's been a looong while. I'm back to working on this! I super overestimated my own script last year, I'm probably like 30% done at most, not 60%. But I'm writing, and it's going well. I really can't wait for when I can finally finish & release this.

Thanks so much to all who've shown their enthusiasm for this project even when it was on hiatus!!

I hope you'll finish this one day, because never have I before slammed my money on the floor so hard for the characters. YES PLEASE.
Also, Vit Oreo. your name is something I am envious of.
Oh wait, I got distracted. I'm REALLY curious to what extent Vit is going to "find" Eric, because that sounds like it'll go to the deepest and worst parts of humanity and I hope that future me writes a fic for this VN once it's out and I've played it because that premise is. So. Good.
