Time travel, assassins and one demonic magical gangster bunny.
"The perfect story... I will do anything to create it" - ???
The kingdom of Alteria is under threat from the demon king. Luckily, there was a prophecy that when a certain child(called "The Hero of Fortune") will reach the age of 18, he will eat a golden fruit and gain enough powers to defeat the demon king and his army.
One day, Prince Horace receives a letter from his father saying "The Hero of Fortune is now in the eastern market, escort him to the castle where he can eat the golden fruit". When Horace goes to the market he meets 3 different girls, each claiming to be the Hero of Fortune. Now Horace must look into the girls and determine who is the real Hero of Fortune, who are the impostors and what do they want.
But his adventures won't end there...
Nozomi Nozomi is a cheerful and energetic girl. She lived in the forest most of her life with her demonic magician gangster bunny mentor(there is an explanation for that), so she doesn't know a lot about civilized society and gets excited about every little thing(with a lot of funny misunderstandings).
Nozomi has an endless supply of sexual jokes and has a talent to use them exactly in the worst time. She isn't the sharpest tool in the shed but she has a great affinity for magic.(magic is mainly used by demons)
Riko Riko has a short fuse and quite a lot of ego. She won numerous gladiator championships before with her amazing agility. Her ego is quite fragile, and with her
childish and stubborn attitude that's quite the explosive combo. She loves drinking and speaking high language. Riko's former family was a family of gladiators, but they disowned her for being too weak. Now Riko plans to beat her father in the finals and take revenge on him. She also possesses a drawing of Horace for some reason...
Haruka is a shy and insecure girl. She is a genius that solves riddles in the blink of an eye and predicts what others will do based on cold logic. She lives in the slums of the Capital and is very physically weak. Although Haruka is insecure most of the time, when she faces an intellectual challenge she transforms into a strong woman with a lot of confidence. She holds some very strong political views regarding the royal family. Contrary to her innocent looks, she is an avid fan of torture.
Horace Horace is the next king of Alteria and trains everyday to become a better king. He is a little spoiled, but he understands how big his responsibility is. He cares a lot about Alteria and will even risk his life to keep his kingdom safe. He is not a genius, but he finds some creative and crazy ideas to solve hard problems. He is a huge gladiator fan and an otaku. He is also quite handsome.(which does help him in some situations...)
-Three unique routes with different atmospheres, each based on one of the classic RPG roles: The mage, the warrior and the rogue.
-350,000 words (which roughly translates to 25 hours of gameplay based on what I read online).
-Multiple route mystery!
-About 12 endings + true ending. That doesn't count short bad endings, for instance deciding to have sex with the demon princess in an active volcano(which can happen in the story btw).
Writing- 90%(wrote about 320,000 words and about 30,000 words left to write + some editing and proofreading)
Art - 50% (About half of the CGs complete, need another character sprite + some shadows of characters)
Music - 10% (Just bought a huge pack of music for a dollar, now I am going over it and categorizing it. Next is going over the story and deciding which kind of music befits each part).
Programming- 10%(only programmed the UI teehee *puts a fist on the head, winks and pulls out tongue* but most of the script can be easily reformatted to renpy code so I am not very concerned about that).
I don't promise that I won't be late on some of those things but you can roughly expect:
Trailer- in month and a half.
Demo(n king)- 2-3 months.
The game itself - ~April 2019.
Hope to see you playing!
Art and CG- Sysen
Editing- Hikari Beldrich
Some backgrounds- Kuwandiaru
