Softwar - Hack VN RPG [BXG]

#1 Post by zankizuna » Thu Jun 29, 2017 7:50 am

Hi! I'm Raseruuu, Raseru09, and zankizuna. lols
so sad it didn't reach SuNoFes :( but oh well!
Gotta finish it this time >:)

SOFTWAR
Softwar Logo.png
Plot:
John Doe[Renameable Player character] is a orphan boy who works at a software development company.
One day, John receives the e-mail that changes his life!
He accidentally downloaded and run a powerful Virus that took over his computer!
But hey, the virus wasn't that bad! It was called ILOVEYOU, the ILOVEYOU Virus!
His PC is definitely hacked now, though.
ILY, working as his AI assistant, Introduces John to the Grid world, a cyberspace dimension in disk space for AI programs.
Later after this, Hilbert, John's (rich) best friend is threatened to be hacked, and requires help!
Help that not just any programmer can solve-- Help that requires access to the Grid!
Dragged into this without much knowledge, Ily urges John to intercept the hacker through the Grid!
ILY is faced with new opponents, fellow Cyber-entities in a SOFTWAR, the battle that decides the fate of their Computers!

He may not look it, but John loves programming a lot!
In pursuit of more experience, John sets forth on a Hackathon, the ultimate battle of university programmers where all the geniuses clash and show off their algorithmic skills!
The Next Hackathon They're attending is also entitled "SOFTWAR", strangely. And they have to find out why!


We live in a time where technology is a vital part of everyday life.
Tons and tons of information is stored in every computer.
Screen shot 2017-06-24 at 7.43.02 PM.png
in 2018, Programs have taken a new form, and a new name.
AI Cyber-entities are now spread throughout the world.
People can now converse with programs.
John.png
You play as the regular boy named "John Doe" RENAMEABLE, due to popular demand.
John Doe is an orphan who has lived his life independently,
and has chosen the path of a programmer.
He is a college undergrad who has begun gaining money in a software development studio.
ILY.png
"Ily, the Virus assistant"
One day he downloaded a piece of malware from a shady e-mail, from an unknown sender.
It was supposed to destroy his computer, as it was a Virus.
THE ILOVEYOU VIRUS of year 2000. Or at least it was based from it.
Lisa.png
John and his friend Lisa, join in as a team in Softwar against other universities.
Meanwhile real hackers lurk in the shadows.
Luckily Ily is there to help!

Developing an AI chatbot system for my Ily character to support the story. :)
Aside from Softwar, I'd like to release this separate ILY AI game.
She's using AIML now, so it's kinda ridiculous. but before I release anything, I'm gonna go give her lots and lots of info.
It would be great if she used another module better than AIML. but it's kinda hard coz I've been having a hard time installing NLTK(Natural Language Tool Kit).
She answers questions based on keywords.

This is Ave[Pronounced as Eyv] based from Avast Antivirus!
Vira.jpg
This here is Vira Antivirus, based from Avira :3

ILY is a Virus that spreads through E-mail, so her powers in a Softwar are based on Spamming envelopes of Mail!

And that's that, for now. I might spoil hahaha but I've got lotsa vectoring to do!

My poor self has been having trouble balancing time, and accumulating creativity, so I got a friend to do some Virus designs!
His name is Angelo Sanguir: gelopsychedelico.deviantart.com
He made some Virus enemies to fight in the RPG parts of Softwar :)
Here's Keylogger, Ransomware, Rootkit, and Worm, respectively.

Thanks a lot @Zylinder! We have my friend gelopsychedelico to thank for that <3
I too, was surprised to see Worm wasn't very curvy or dragon-looking! That's what it'd look like to me hahahaha
This motivates me a lot!

Oh my GOODNESS! This is TOO ADORABLE! I love the character designs so far and the premise is very interesting! :D
(You get to bond with a cute virus?!? Sign me up! XD)

I can't wait to play this! It almost reminds me of this one super short game (i've never played it, but I've heard of it...) where you meet a girl who is sick and in the end, you find out she was cancer or something because you smoked too much. HAHA.

But yes, this is done super well! I'll be watching for updates * - *
