Agent of Love [GxB]) Josei, Romance, Mystery, Drama, Commercial

About our Game

Image

As the adopted daughter of the Police Chief Commissioner…
Your newfound social status introduces you to the glittering socialite world of well known politicians, and famous celebrities.
Whereas your occupation as a detective, exposes you to an underground society, full of crime, and intrigue.
Your eventful, action-packed lifestyle, leaves you susceptible to danger, putting you at risk with no time for romance.
So when you receive a call from your father, asking you to meet him in his office...
...you never expected love to come your way.

But things are not always what they seem, especially when it comes to matters of the heart.

What mysteries surround the men that come into your life?
Can you wade through all the lies and deceit to find the truth?
Or...
Will your love lead you on a destructive path of heartbreak, misery...and death?





About Us

Delusional is a small Indie studio based in Australia.

I can't file out the survey since I need more game material to properly judge it. Or a demo.

And you really ask for a lot of things like income. Already doing marketing research?

Hi thanks for looking at it!

Demo is scheduled to be released beginning of next year, after beta testing in December. (I'll post for beta testers when it's ready!)
The survey is mainly testing for first impressions and device compatibility.
And yes, market research is important for our game, we ask the household income section because we're releasing for a paid market.
Household income affects how much you'll have, to spend on entertainment luxuries such as games etc.

Hi Everyone,

For those of you that are in Sydney, Australia, we’ll be dropping by the IGDA Sydney Beer and pixels meetup to test the Alpha version of our game.
It’s at the Broadway Hotel, (underneath the Broadway shopping centre).

Come play the prologue, check out our promo posters, and be one of the first to have a sneak peek at our guys before their official launch!

I hope you don't mind, but I have a few questions!

You make a point that this is Josei and not Otome, but in the only route description so far you mentioned the MC's "innocent heart". Will the MC be an inexperienced, naive young woman? Beyond her having a career, how is she different from the usual otome heroine? The Josei label is what initially caught my attention, and I'm curious in what ways it's targeted for an older audience.

Is this following the mobile format of purchasing individual routes? Will there be an option to buy the game in its entirety?

I'm so sorry for not responding sooner!
We didn't receive a notification of your question posting and just saw it. (Will definitely recheck the subscription options)

To answer your questions

1) "Innocent heart" in this instance is someone who has never fallen in love before, our MC has always been working and concentrating hard in her career and family, therefore, love is the furthest thing from her mind.
After all, busy days of solving mysteries, attending grisly murder crimes, romance would be something that is less considered.
Also since this game is based in Japan, the culture of striving for perfection in all other aspects while leaving love for the last is more common.

2) As for the Naive question, she is considered to be naive in love and dating, but she's not necessarily naive in life.
A detective needs to have determination and strong fortitude to delve into the minds of criminals, therefore, this isn't a job for an inexperienced, naive young woman.
This is where our MC is different as she has her own goals, her strengths and weaknesses, her wants and needs. She's not an empty or flat character but a round character. This will be explored throughout each route and story.

3) It's also because of the above reasons that our game is labelled as Josei.
We'll be delving deeper and exploring more into real life drama.
Unlike most Otome stories, our stories need a certain level of maturity and understanding as they will involve the struggles we'll have with our families, the reality of how we have to juggle our career and our approach to a possible love life, moreover, we also explore social themes and issues in our stories.
The stories are written just like a Jdrama with happy and tragic endings available, to show and emphasise what happens when we fail.

4) Yes, our game will be following the mobile format of purchasing individual routes, buying the game in it's entirety is not an option at this point in time.

Hello, I decided to drop by and tell you that the game looks amazing, I really like the plot, I'm into detective dramas and mystery, and this really intrigues me. Also, the GUI is really cool! Seeing as this is a Josei game, I feel even more inclined to play it because I expect the MC to be more mature and as you said before, it'll be tackling social issues and things like that which I'm also looking forward to. I wanted to ask though, will the MC have a sprite in the game? And the scary bunny in the trailer.... that's interesting...

Hi :D
Thank you for taking an interest in our game and hearing your positive feedback!

The MC won't have a sprite in our game except for certain CGs scenes.
And the bunny...more on that later as the game progresses :wink:

Hi everyone!

We're currently working on our game video trailer this week.
Matching it with music composed by Hideyuki Shima-san.

https://mobile.twitter.com/studio_saari

He's a great person to work with, diligent, very professional, and thankfully patient with our problematic requests 😅.
He has a wealth of experience behind him, and I highly recommend him if you ever need music for your games, films, theatre plays etc.
