The Stone Sun [BxB] [Fantasy] [Commercial]
Posted: Sat Dec 03, 2016 7:38 pm
I've decided to start a thread here for my visual novel, The Stone Sun, to get feedback from visual novel players and developers. It's the first time I've worked on a visual novel, and the first game I've worked on by myself. Critique is welcome.
I started making this for YaoiJam over the summer, but computer troubles and other commitments made that impossible, so I’ve decided to take my time and fleshed out the story and characters considerably. I’ll be doing everything except the audio myself, which I'll be looking to commission once the game starts to take shape.
This will be a commercial game, with the price yet to be decided. I plan to release a free demo version prior to releasing the full game. I hope to release it on Windows/Mac/Linux, and on iOS. I probably won’t release it for Android because I’m far less familiar with the platform than with iOS, both as an end user and a developer.
There will be two love interests and five endings, one of which is locked until you meet certain criteria.
Gabriel inherited a large cache of priceless cultural artefacts and works of art acquired under dubious circumstances by his ancestor, famed explorer Cristián Castillo Vargas. After graduating from university, he began to trace the history of each piece, and return it to its rightful owners, or donate it to a museum in its country of origin. Finally, he’s down to the last piece—a priceless amulet—but after a run-in with a thief, he accidentally unleashes the spirit trapped inside it.
The protagonist. On a mission to return his ancestor's ill-gotten gains to their rightful owners.
Mischievous thief with a fondness for art and archaeological treasures.
