A Night To Remember [GxG][Romance | Fantasy][NaNo '17]

#1 Post by candichan06 » Thu Mar 09, 2017 10:35 pm

For NaNo this year, allow me to unveil the project we're working on; a GxG version of Cinderella in which you (as Cinderella) can romance either 'Princess Charming' or Gossy, your long-time fairy friend, if you so choose (not required).

Here's a sneak peek at our main menu screen:

Image

Now, allow me to introduce the main characters (finalized arts to come soon):

ELENA

Image

MC: Elena (name changeable): A blond haired and blue eyed servant for a wealthy widow and her two daughters (who are also her half-sisters as a result of their late father's infidelity).
Her personality will be influenced by some of the game's dialogue choices (similar to the dialogue wheel mechanic in Dragon Age and/or Mass Effect).
She also knows her way around a kitchen, especially with baking (huge sweet tooth).


GOSSY

Image

Gossy (short for Gossamer): a curvy redhead woodland fairy who is a skilled seamstress and enjoys all sorts of needlework. She often sings or hums while working on her projects.


NAOMI

Image

Princess Naomi: The tall, dark, and chronically ill third princess of the kingdom.
At least, that's why most people believe she rarely makes it to social events...the truth is that she suffers from social anxiety. She is a fan of dancing and fencing.

Hopefully this piques your interest; I am both excited and nervous since this is my first (serious) attempt at a NaNo game :D

Progress

Writing: 2236/??? words
Character Art: In progress
Backgrounds: In progress
Programming: In progress
GUI: Mostly complete

UPDATE: Unfortunately, due to the necessity of adulting (aka juggling working on this with things like school and work and whatnot), we won't be able to finish this game by the NaNo deadline.

But, there is a silver lining to this; we will upgrade the project to a standard WIP and when we release it (and we will :D), we can have it polished with fun things like CGs, custom BGS and music (hopefully, will need to recruit but I am optimistic), etc, instead of releasing it as it would have been and then polishing it up afterwards.

....is there anything missing?

Anyway, HECK YEAH, another GxG VN and the sketch looks promising! Dialogue choices are always a plus, and the 'sick' Princess intrigues me the most, tbh. Fairytales are right up my alley and I'm really looking forward to it!

AH this looks amazing so far! The character models are really appealing. I have no least favourite, they all sounds different and interesting. (I kinda expect roses and/or sparkles to be there at some point)

The characters are both so appealing to me. How am I supposed to choose between them? D: All the outfits look so cute too! I'm looking forward to playing this.

Well, I can already tell you that sparkles will be making an appearance in the main menu (they're also a bit more dynamic than the screenshot would suggest)

I'm glad to hear the characters and outfits are so appealing to all you guys! :D Thanks for your kind words and support; they mean a lot! (I also updated the post with the MC's finalized sprite images :D)
