Bitter (Previous Title: 7 AM Rush) [NaNo2017]

Bitter

(Previous Title: 7 AM Rush)


A short visual novel about overthinking and cheap coffee.


Our protagonist (style test):
Image

A recent college graduate with a degree in political science. His usual chipper persona is muted this morning, replaced by an alien feeling of anxiety...


Featuring (potentially):

Watercolor styled CGs
A cinematic approach to VNs
Usagimimi characters
pretty terrible coffee

This is my first time dabbling in VNs, as well as my first time in the forums! There's still a lot I'm trying to learn, but I hope you'll be there with me for the journey!!

You had me at "short visual novel" - I don't have as much free time these days - but I'm also very interested in overthinking, cheap coffee, and watercolor CGs. :D Good luck on your project!

"Over-thinking and cheap coffee"? Are you making my autobiography? (;

JK! But I love this story already, I can definitely relate because I'm bombarded with anxiety on a daily basis. The art looks like it's going to turn out fan-freaking-tastic, as well! Good luck, I'm looking forward to the development :D

ahhh i actually wanted to start off with something small for my first vn, so that way i could ease myself into the genre (tho the amount of cgs ive already planned holy hell)
but yeah i also struggle w reading and finishing longer vns nowadays, and ive become used to reading short ones online

thank you so much for the support!! i really appreciate it : D

aaaaaaaa thank you!!
the thing about this character is that hes actually the most chill compared to my other ones?? but its kinda funny that when i finally decided to give him a spotlight its when hes acting kinda differently from how he usually is
im gonna try to highlight his personality as much as possible though and not get him too bogged down (as well as not confuse his experiences and reactions with my own.... creative writing is hard man)

your comments are really sweet, thank you so much!!
