After overhearing an ad on the radio, 19-year-old Patricia Hart enrolls in an experimental blind-dating project called Cupid's Texting Service. All participants are randomly paired via raffle a potential love interest, and for 1 whole month, communication happens solely via text. Once the 1 month is up, you can decide to meet in person. Can Patricia really fall in love with someone she has not seen nor heard?
- Fully voiced dialogue (minus the texting of course)
- 4 possible routes
- 4-8 event CGs
- Ren'Py decides your assigned route in the first playthrough (afterward, vague choices unlock--so you don't have to worry about getting the same route 3 times in a row)
Script - Common Route (Done!), Routes 2 of 4 (in progress)
Sprite Sets - Done!
CGs - (Pending...)
Voice Acting - (In Progress)
GUI - Mostly done
Extras Menu - (Pending...)
Kokoro Hane - Main Writer, Director
El.Seth - Sprite Artist, Co-Writer (writes 1 full route)
Tashaj4de - Poster Artist, Logo Artist, CG Liner
Sayumi101 - GUI Designer
Various VAs (Trina Deuhart, Jerron Bacat, and more!)
Dev Notes 3.6.2021
Hello there! Kind of just made a simple thread this year, but this is Tofu Sheets Visual's project for this year's NaNo, but due to some of the art having been drawn before the jam's start--it counts as an IntRenAiMo. However, I did not start any writing until the jam started, so the whole story is being written within the jam timeline. We hope to get all of it done by the deadline, but if not, we may just release a demo or with just 2 routes and update it later--not sure yet. If there is any delays, I imagine it'd be no more than 2 extra weeks needed, but we'll do our best to get this out by the deadline. We are very excited about this project. It's going to be kind of vague to keep the surprise - players will not know what the love interests look and sound like either, which is why no art will be shown of them nor their VAs revealed until 1 month after the game's initial release. Majority of the game happens via text messaging, so it is a good chunk of just reading which helps to keep the voice acting load low. Voice over happens mostly at the beginning of the game and of course near the end of it, with some sporadic, short in-between moments of mainly Pat's twin brother teasing her or saying the project is really shady and a waste of time lol. We hope the project will bring a smile to your face and you'll have a lot of fun! We are trying some new things here -- the thing I am mostly excited about is using renpy.random to dictate your first route so players can fully experience the blind-dating project's random assigning method. We hope you are just as excited as us about this silly little project!
