[Simulation][VN]General Practitioner

#1 Post by Bruni Multimedia » Wed Sep 05, 2018 6:21 am

In development for over an year we reached Alpha release 0.0.17 this month.

I'd like to have some feedback about this game, because I'm really working hard in doing something new in the Visual Novel scenario, by adding simulation and management elements, albeit the main focus of the game will be its story and the interaction with the other characters.

The game will be classified as Adult only because there will be some nudity in it (in medical exams and in romantic encounters with the characters mostly) and some harsh Language and such, however this doesn't aim to become neither a porn game neither a sex simulator.

Become a General Practitioner
Live the everyday life of a General Practitioner: go to the clinic every day and meet new patients, develop your skills through study and manage your clinic and your staff. With dozens of items to buy and an always short budget will you be able to treat your patients in the best way?

Deep and engaging narration
General Practitioner features a very long and deep storyline which will take you in a world of mistery and deception. Explore the game's main story while enjoying the other activities available in town. The whole game contains more than 40 hours of gameplay and it's growing update after update!

Manage your clinic
Manage your staff wage, hire them or send them out if they become a liability! Interact with medical equipment and patients to address their illnessess properly, hire administration staff to help you manage the clinic and try to increase your own fame!

You decide your own fate
Choices in dialogues and situations really matter! With more than 100 choices to make both in the Main Story and in medical exams you'll experience the consequences of your actions (and in-actions as well). You decide your own fate, do you have what it takes to be a General Practitioner?

Meet new people
The built-in romance system allows you to hang out with dozens of characters of both genders, jog with them at the local park, play a bowling game, relax at the local spa. If you are smart enough you can even make them fall in love with you and ask them to live together, unlocking special conversations and events with them.

You won't know if the date will go well or not, because that depends on fate (and your choices and comfort level of the other one). The more you build up your date's confidence the more chance of success you will have.
Each character you date has a pool different characteristics (i.e. people they like/dislike, favourite foods, informations about their family or job etc.). You'll randomly get to know a different characteristic each time a date will go well and, since they're random, they will be different each time you play General Practitioner or load a save game.

Each patient is different
With a pool of more than 90 scripted patients also comes a random examination system!
Simply put: each time you play the exams will be different. From a pool of 60 diseases and five different patient's archetipes (Children, Teenagers, Young Adults, Adults and Elders) you won't get the very same situation twice!

Medical accuracy
Developed with the help of a real MD, the game features medical informations that are accurate and up-to-date. Please do not take medical informations other than for having fun in the game. If you experience some medical concern ask your doctor as soon as possible.

Original Soundtrack
Ann Sharova (Zup6!, Just Ski, Ezmir: The Last War and many others) composed a soundtrack with 12 different scores to accompany you in your trip as Chief Practitioner of St. Mary's Clinic.
You can hear some work from Ann on her Youtube Channel , or on her SoundCloud . A Youtube reel is also available.

The game is currently in Alpha state and available for free here:

I'm very interested in comments on the game from this community, what do you think I should improve? What do you think works fine?
Please beware of bugs, the game being an Alpha release is filled with them sometimes and please remember I'm working alone on this one :D

Thanks for your time, I hope you'll enjoy the game!

After Steam released the Early Access for my game reviews are starting to be written. Here you can find a couple, one in English and the other one in Russian.

It's really overwhelming how well the public received the game around the planet, and this last statement is also overwhelming since I happen to have players from the US to JAPAN and everything in between.

18 months ago this would've been impossible to even think about, and it's thanks to people who keep supporting this project, which is still a long way to go but it's definitely getting its final shaping as weeks pass.

Please also check my website www.brunimultimedia.com for new features added like full Italian translation, partial Japanese translation (work in progress) and new download options.

Hi guys!

A couple days ago Sinical Anime Network interviewed me about General Practitioner's launch on online Retail Stores and about the overall backstory of the game.

During our talk we discussed several topics about the game's development, from the very first idea of the project to how Patreon is currently managing the Adult Videogame Development's community.

If you are a bit curious about it check this link, and let me know your thoughts about this: https://www.sinicalanimenetwork.com/sin ... Multimedia

Be safe and healthy,
