Hi guys! ISiah here and I am pleased to share our work in progress of Animalia Vengeance. Please note that this thread will keep evolving as we get more done and any feedback to improve this thread is much appreciated!

Trailer



Story Synopsis

Modern day earth has witnessed technology flourish leaps and bounds. With the on-going scientific breakthrough in the fields of healthcare, human’s life expectancy has increased and kept improving over the years.

With the ever increasing human population, both newborn, and aging, comes the need to create measures to meet the basic food needs of people. With a prediction of food shortages, deforestation is happening rapidly to make way for farmlands, and with it a rapid increase in animal cruelty.

This story revolves around Aiden, the Head of Research of Food Technologies at Futurelabs, which was set up to accelerate the technology to grow sustainable, commercial-grade lab meat.

In his quest to stop animal cruelty, Aiden will face sabotage, gain animal companions, suffer heartbreaking losses, make difficult decisions, and potentially find love. Which path will your decisions ultimately take you?

Any suggestions, objections, or general observations will be greatly appreciated,

1. What do you think of the game concept - in terms of setting and environment?

1. What do you think of the game concept - in terms of setting and concept?: It's interesting, especially given how relevant this issue is today. Your scenario is very realistic, which I find cool.
2. Which character(s) do you think are the most interesting so far?: No one really stands out to me. Maybe Zuri.
3. I'm focusing heavily on the story, instead of giving players a lot of love interest options. Will this be a deterrent?: Not at all. I personally think it's better to have less love interests but focus on each one more (as oppose to having a billion shallow routes).

This looks really cute, especially the art for the animals! It's also really cool that it looks like you're working on some animation for the sprites. I think that always adds an extra level of immersion and visual appeal.

In terms of characters, I think I'll probably like Kaori a lot! And I agree with what Zelan said about the benefits of fewer love interests, especially if romance is just a subplot and not the main focus of the story, which it sounds like it is for you. Good luck with everything!

Hey Zelan and parttimestorier!

Thanks for the feedback!

@Zelan in terms of no characters standing out, is it due to their design? Or is information lacking from their profile?

@parttimestorier Kaori is quite the character in game ;)

The romance plot ties in with the game's premise, so it will be treated with some respect and relevance :)

1. What do you think of the game concept - in terms of setting and concept?
I think the concept is a unique one for sure. Its a good premise for a visual novel & has me curious to read more.

2. Which character(s) do you think are the most interesting so far?
I like Yuki the most but I might be biased because cats. Shes also direct and that's a plus for me, since I tend to get annoyed by characters that cause a lot of misunderstandings.

3. I'm focusing heavily on the story, instead of giving players a lot of love interest options. Will this be a deterrent?
Not a deterrent at all. I'm far more interested in a good story than romancing people.

Looking forward to seeing more from the game. The art is very lovely so far too.

I was judging by the profiles when I said no one stood out to me.

In terms of character design, no one is *super* interesting either, but I play a lot of fantasy so I'm used to pretty wild designs. These are better for your setting even if they're not as appealing to me personally. c:

Hmmm looks like I probably need a lady gaga or equivalent character for this setting to spice things up? :lol:

Thanks for your feedback, something to ponder about, though I do have a 'quite' out there character in the works (minor character though)

Looks like this project have lost you but am happy to invite you for feedback as I update the thread over time.

Thanks!!

Hello Ivan,

This is Brittany Ann whom you've messaged a couple of days ago regarding Animalia Vengeance. I'm having technical difficulties with my PM system so if you can email me at brittanyann.actor@gmail.com and we can discuss the project further there.

Thank you

1. What do you think of the game concept - in terms of setting and environment?
I love the concept! Very unique looking forward to it!
2. Which character(s) do you think are the most interesting so far?
When it comes to the design of thing I love the cute little furballs *v* If you meant human then I like Aiden.
3. I'm focusing heavily on the story, instead of giving players a lot of love interest options. Will this be a deterrent?
I think it depends? Personally to me it does not really matter ^v^

Looking forward to the finished product!

I like the cover sketch so far! The double helix in the middle is really nice.

It's kind of odd that the animals are just floating in midair, though. Is there going to be some sort of design behind them in the colored version?

Hey Zelan, glad to see that you're still hanging around here :) and thanks for the feedback!

the colored version will have some shapes and textures behind them to fill in the gap. Working with the artist to complete this but am fairly confident it wouldn't cause too much issues :D
