Fetch Quest [NaNo2019] [Fantasy, Comedy, GxB][Complete!]

UPDATE!
I was able to finish (just barely) in time! You can download the game now:

I'm so glad to be done! Now I can go play everyone else's entries.

After a long day of traveling, You’ve found yourself at a shady pub in a small village. According to the villagers, it’s a terrible pub. The food is stale and flavorless, the drinks are expensive, and the clientele are less than savory. But you're not here to drink and mingle, are you? You’re here for a job.


Synopsis
Would-be adventurer Flora accepts a job to retrieve a stolen item for a shady bartender. In order to retrieve the item, she'll have to infiltrate a group of notorious bandits by posing as a new recruit. Fortunately, two other adventurers have accepted the job as well, so she won't be working alone. UNfortunately, her companions seem completely useless without her!

Characters
I don't have much to show for now, but here are some WIPs of the main characters!

Flora

Todd

Connor
Image

Bartender...?

About Me
I'm Missy, and this will be my first full/public visual novel! I'll be working on it by myself, so who knows if I'll finish before NaNoRenO ends. Regardless, I hope to continue the project until it's done.

If you want to follow my struggle elsewhere, I'm also on:

This looks cute! I like the fact that it's a bit high-stakes - what would happen if the bandits found out what Flora was really up to?

Good luck on your NaNo!

Lucky for Flora, this bandit gang has a tedious enrollment process and a confusing chain of command. She would probably be in and out before the big wigs even saw her employment application. She's more worried about even finding the object, considering they weren't told exactly what it was.

Thanks for the well wishes!

Ah, this looks exciting! Loving the linework and the outfit designs for the characters here. It feels like a ton of things could go wrong for Flora if she isn't careful. I hope she'll eventually find whatever it is that the bartender wants her to find.

Looking forward to more updates, good luck!

This sounds like it'll be a fun one to play. Flora is my favorite so far, I just love her face/expression! She definitely looks like someone who's annoyed she has work with some useless people haha. I'm curious to find out more about the other characters, based on just the art I'm most interested in Connor I think. Good luck with your game!

Thanks for the feedback so far!

Here's Todd's sprite basically ready to go.
Image

Todd took this job because it sounded like fun. Aaand also because his village burned down along with all his belongings. For some reason, he doesn't seem too broken up about it. He likes when Flora picks choices that are bold and/or self-serving.

Here's Connor!
Image

The holy knight Connor squired for was struck by a falling tree and died. His church decided he must have been a heretic, and cast Connor out for "heresy by association". Connor took this job to make some money and get back on his feet. He likes when Flora picks choices that are inventive and/or just.

They've been colored in! They look so charming, and I love the way you styled their character descriptions. ^^ Can't wait for you to share more of these bartender's notes!

I'm glad people seem to like these so far!

Here's the bartender. Only one main character left to go and I can stop staring at sprites for a while!

Image

None of the adventurers bothered to ask, but the bartender's name is Daniel. He doesn't seem surprised that two of his three adventurers are ill equipped for adventuring. On the contrary, it's almost like that's what he intended...
He doesn't care much what choices Flora picks as long as he gets his item back.

And finally, the MC, Flora!

Image

Flora used to be the heir to a famous locksmithing business. When her father started making puzzles and traps for the kingdom's liches, necromancers, and various other corrupt politicians, she turned her back on him and became a thief. She is clearly the most equipped to accept the bartender's job, but is generous enough to let Todd and Connor accompany her anyway.

Now I'll be making a mad dash to finish writing so I can get to the fun parts!

Here are some GUI updates!

They're pretty basic- I haven't messed with the GUI in Ren'py before and I don't have much time to learn what all can be done. It's starting to look like a real game now, though!
