Chook & Sosig: A Case of Murder [Nano 2017] [DEMO UP]

#1 Post by Tookipalooki » Fri Mar 03, 2017 4:30 am

Image
Supernatural murder mystery/Comedy

Plot
A dead body is discovered in the remote island of The Neighbourhood, it will take about 3 hours for the police to arrive on the scene, so it that time Sosig can live out their dream of becoming a detective.
Can Chook and Sosig find the culprit in time? or will their amateur sleuthing just make things much much worse?
Features
(I'm keen to hit the deadline with time to spare in order to insert bizarre and unexpected features)

* about 5k words
* choices with consequences and odd knock-on effects
* 3 endings
* 2 crime-scenes to investigate
* 1 computer to explore
* Extra things I'm not telling
Characters



Chook & Sosig
Image
Chook
Chook is a ghost and cannot physically interact with anything, she just remarks on everything and tries to keep an eye on Sosig. She came with the house when Sosig bought it. Her past is somewhat hazy. As a ghost she is more sensitive to the paranormal and is somewhat aware the world of the Neighbourhood is controlled by outside forces.
Sosig
Sosig is a former child star (they used to advertise cat food). Sosig's gender is never referenced as it never cropped up in the last game so I'm rolling with it. You influence Sosig's runaway train of thought at points through the game.

I really love the art for Chook & Sosig (though I haven't had the chance to play it yet, since I didn't know it existed until a few minutes ago)! I assume this will be in the same sort of style, and I'm really excited to see what it'll be like! Both characters sound (and look) amazing.

Also, YES for bizarre features. I love bizarre features, and I hope you have the time to implement them in this game.

The art is soooooo cuteee ;;; I really love the art style, characters for the game are funny and unique!
I wonder what/whose dead body they found?

Can't wait to play this game and will be looking forward for the updates!

Ah man thank-you both so much for the kind words <3

I'm spending today getting the story writing well underway, I've got my cast of characters pretty much set in stone and I have a loose idea of where the story goes and wraps up, time to try tie it all together.

I feel like I'm in exact same spot ... almost.
I know my characters (at last some of them. From time to time someone new comes to say Hi and then leave again)
I know where they are heading but that's all. Spend two days figuring out art style and forgot about the story. :D

So I wish you to make some satisfying progress today. :)

To echo everyone else, I love the art style you're using for this project. Mysteries are great, and I especially enjoy ones that include a bit of quirky humor. I'm looking forward to playing this!

I love the art style for this! And I really like mystery stories, so I'll be keeping an eye on this VN. :D

(Also, it's great to see another person who knows about Jonathan Creek. :wink: )

Yay the demo went up yesterday, I decided in the last few days to make a very large change to the flow of the game and in doing so sliced it into 3 distinct parts.
The demo is the first section of the game.
