LINK TO DEMO 1.0Freki Lyall has spent most of his life refusing to step out of his family’s mansion; if he’s a disappointment to his parents, he can’t possibly do better in the outside world, can he? But when his beloved older brother, Geri, disappears, Freki makes the decision to step outside and look for him.
Demo 1.0 contains unfinished assets. It is submitted to make it in time for the yaoi jam deadline. I will continue to work on the game throughout the year.
The demo is PG-13 and the full game will be 16+ for violence.
Hello, pumpkin spike here, participating in my first yaoi jam! (: The goal for the end of this jam is to complete a demo for the game. Because I wanted to have a concise summary above, there's a number of details that didn't make it into the description. This story takes place in the 1920s-1930s in a small, fictional European country. The love interests, who "help" Freki find his brother, are based off four fairy tales: The Three Little Pigs, The Wolf and the Seven Kids, Red Riding Hood, and The Boy Who Cried Wolf. So each route will be a loose fairy tale retelling. Although the main character, Freki, has a fairly set personality, his name is changeable.
The tags for the Romance and Historical genres have question marks following them as I'm currently not sure how big of an impact they will play in the story. There will be romance since it is a BxB game, but I would describe this story to fall under mystery and action before it falls under romance.
Some questions for the viewers! (Updated for demo)
- What do you think of the characters, do you have a favorite one?
- Would you prefer releases for each route as they are finished, or would you prefer that the entire game be finished and released as a whole?
- I've noticed that most yaoi visual novels contain R18 sexual material. What do you think of the fact that this game won't contain R18 material? Should it be considered within the yaoi genre? If it shouldn't, what genre do you think it should be? (Depending on people's opinion for this question, I may put in R18 scenes. However, it would have to be really convincing since R18 scenes are not my forte...) Or, if I'm actually completely wrong about there being R18 material in most yaoi visual novels, feel free to link me to non-R18 ones to broaden my horizons c:
- Any feedback in general?
Now that Demo 1.0 is finished, look forward to the following updates for Demo 2.0! (:
- Finished backgrounds
- Finished CGs
- Original music
- Sprites for non-main characters
- Original GUI
- Redo sprites & art (more expressions, poses, and to make them look older)
While more character sprites will be drawn for a full game release, the demo will only feature the main character and his four love interests.
