Human Cargo [BxB][Sci-Fi][Bara Jam][18+][DEMO]

#1 Post by robcolton » Tue Nov 06, 2018 3:38 pm

Hello everyone!

I'm Rob Colton and I'm working on my first visual novel. It's called Human Cargo. The first demo for Human Cargo will be released as part of BARA JAM 2018.

About Human Cargo
Yoshi Garcia is stuck in a rut, professionally and personally... until he finds himself kidnapped by alien pirates. At first opportunity, he escapes, stowing away aboard a cargo freighter, where he hopes to hide out until he can sneak off the ship. Unfortunately for Yoshi, he's immediately discovered by the freighter crew.

Kol is the gruff warrior who commands the ship. Razix, the red-skinned flirty Regulan, is the ship's hot-shot pilot. Zed, the furry beast, is the security chief. Nasir, the territorial human, keeps the ship's systems running. And finally, Doc, the intelligent blue-skinned Sargan, keeps the crew patched up.

Help Yoshi find adventure and romance (and hot sex) amongst the stars!

Human Cargo features male/male situations and is intended for mature audiences.

The demo is now available to download at Itch.io.

Can’t wait to see more sprites and artwork up eventually Rob. I can tell there’s going to be a lot of diversity and that’s one of the fun parts of having a story set in a sci-fi world containing aliens.

I’ve always wondered, was there a reason you started with Kol first and not Yoshi, in terms of sprites?

Anyways Human Cargo is already looking pretty polished with the intricate high quality backgrounds and sprites!!!

Thanks!

The reason I started with Kol was because he WAS alien, so I thought he would be harder to design and take longer to complete. I wanted to make sure the artist could do a good job with him before commissioning the other alien crewmen and the two humans, including Yoshi. And luckily, he turned out as you see above!

I've updated my post with progress updates!

We added a couple of talented people to our team:
* Illuminate001 has completed the sprite art for Yoshi, the main/player character, as well as the side character Clarence.
* eerron has signed on to do the music for the game.

Work continues on crew and background art, as well as the scripting for the first game path!
