This will be the first game in the Arcadia Academy series!
Arcadia Academy is going to be a "school-life", "slice of life", type of Visual Novel, where you'll be controlling one male character as he interacts with his classmates and finds love with one of many female characters. The game will be R-18, as it will include sexual scenes, however a Age Friendly version will also be released. I'll try my best to be available at all times to help all members of the group. How much work is done? The basic story is written down, and some backgrounds have begun to be worked on. Thank you for reading!
Warning, this is going to be a long post!

Coder: Basic to Moderate coding knowledge is preferred. Must be able to take what the writer creates and manipulate it inside of Renpy. No difficult coding is needed, just basics.
Musical Composer: This is a bit difficult to explain, as we will be using CC music as well. However, be expected to create at least 3 compositions, these will most likely be instrumental, but if you are a singer we can discuss this later.
Writers: Due to the size of the Visual Novel we'll have the two separate writers doing separate paths. I do need the writing styles to be mostly the same. I will have weekly meetings to see how progress is going and to provide constructive criticism.
CG Artist: The amount of CGs is currently not known, although we are estimating at least 15-20. Will needed 1 CG every 1-2 months depending on the complexity of the CG.
Character Artist : We are going to need at least 5 unique characters with varying expressions, and different clothing sets. Will need to have one character completed every 1-2 months, depending on the difficulty.
GUI Artist: Basic GUI set is needed, am looking for a simple, friendly tone. Will discuss details later.
Background Artist Valkyre28 (Me): Will be expecting 30-40 backgrounds. This will include the same rooms with different times of day and varying seasonal changes.
All members are encouraged to help each other by reviewing each other's work if able to
So, how will we be able to contact each other? Easy, we will be using Skype to communicate, and will hold weekly meetings every Saturday where we will be discussing our individual progress. Meeting is mandatory and if you have more than 3 unexcused missed meetings, the group will decide if you will be kicked out of the group or not.
Drop-box will be used be used to save and store character files, background files, musical mp3s and more.
The finished game will be on sale on Steam, and will also be funded with a Kickstarter. This will then be divided into separate parts and distributed accordingly.
