Alliance [GxG][LGBT][Drama][Romance]

#1 Post by Luxa » Thu Apr 05, 2018 2:01 pm

I originally planned to finish this game during this year's NaNo, but then I got really busy and couldn't work on it anymore. Additionally, I want to widen the scope of the story to give all the characters room for development and make adjustments to some of the characters. I'd appreciate feedback.

Synopsis:
Juniper, Ella, Caitlyn and Emily are an online support group for queer girls, but when they realize that they will all attend the same school soon, they deside to make the support group a real life-thing, which of course doesn't go unnoticed...

Planned features:
- 3 different romance options
- lots of side-characters
- high interactivity (lots of choices that all matter)
- a realistic experience
- multiple endings


1. What do you think about the concept?
2. Do you have any ideas or suggestions?


Main characters:

Juniper:
The game's protagonist.

Ella:

A friendly and easygoing nerd who loves books, comics, games and movies. She's also a very goofy and emotional character.

Caitlyn:

An active and social girl who loves sports, especially hiking and swimming. She originally created the online support group. For some reason she lives alone.

Emily:

An introverted and shy bookworm who spends lots of her time studying. She's very polite, considerate and mature for her age.

3. What do you think about these characters? Who do you like most? Whose route are you most interested in?

Side-characters:

Elise:

Juniper's mother, she cares deeply about her daughter.

Risa:

Ella's older sister, a grumpy young woman.

Ben:

Miriam:

Felix:

Sarah:

Juniper's classmate, an outgoing girl who's a part of the school's band.

Jona:

Juniper's classmate, Sarah's childhood friend.

Mrs Summer:

Principal:

A strict woman.

Lena:

4. As you can see, the game will have many side characters, do you think they are too many?
5. The characters also all have the same shape and set of expressions, do they look distinctive enough?

I want to create an as realistic experience as possible, so I created a questionnaire to gather different experiences. I'd really appreciate it if you could participate. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIp ... sp=sf_link

For the last weeks, I was too busy to work on the game, but now I'm back. I made a few changes to some characters, added a new character, and deleted a character that just didn't work.

This looks really interesting! You don't see many GxG dating sims, so I definitely want to play it once it's out.

1. What do you think about the concept?
I really like it! A support group of lesbians? I wish there was something like that at my school.

2. Do you have any ideas or suggestions?
Try not to over-sexualize them, unless your target audience is men.

3. What do you think about these characters? Who do you like most? Whose route are you most interested in?
I think they're all very pretty! I like Ella most, she seems like somebody I'd get along with. As such, her route is the one I'm interested in most.

4. As you can see, the game will have many side characters, do you think they are too many?
No, but I'd be sure not to overwork yourself! If you have a lot of characters, that's more scripting. A problem you may run into is that the audience may want to romance the side characters, so try not to focus on them too much.

5. The characters also all have the same shape and set of expressions, do they look distinctive enough?
Although they have the same expressions, with their hair, clothes, and skin colors, they are all very unique. I can tell them apart easily.

Thanks for the feedback! I'm glad you like the concept, and I can assure you that I'm not planning to sexualize the characters, even though sex will be a toppic. Also, thanks for your advice on the side characters, I'll keep it in mind.
