★ [CLOSED] DemiDato Looking for a Team!

*DD's recruitment is now closed! Thanks everybody for the applications! <3*


★ Like your demihumans cute or scary, nice or not so nice, girls or guys, or anything in between?
★ Want to be part of a relaxed, fun project, where you get to stretch your creative muscles without too much stress?
★ Do you love (or love to make fun of) the tropes in dating sims & otome games, and want to make an affectionate parody of all things dating & VN in a story that doesn't take itself too seriously?
DemiDato is the project for you!

DemiDato is an otome game set within the titular in-universe dating reality TV show (heavily inspired by the Chinese dating show If You Are The One). The main character’s task, as a human contestant on the dating show, is to impress and win over one of the fabulous monsters by the end of the show - monsters who are at times hard to please!
DD features a nameable protagonist with customiseable pronouns and backstory, and short, snappy, fun storylines for each of its dateable demihumans (10+!).

★ Open Positions: ★
☆ Co-Writer(s) & Brainstormers
I’ll be doing some of the writing for the project, but I’m definitely going to need a team of co-writers (ideally 2-3 besides me) to help round out the project. If I’m honest, humor isn’t my strongest suit as a writer, and I’d like to give the project a silly, snarky, tongue-in-cheek voice. If this sounds like it’d suit you, then I’d love to have you on board! If you like, you can choose a couple of characters you like and write their routes in particular, or help work on the common route - how much you want to participate is up to you c:
If you’d rather not write, or are interested in the project but aren’t sure you’ll have time to take up a full role, then you’re welcome to help out on the brainstorming side! You’ll still be a part of the team (and in the credits, of course), but there’ll be less of the time consuming work and more of the fun stuff c;


☆ Character Design - CLOSED! Thank you for the interest!
The design of the characters will be in some ways collaborative, but we’d love to have a few design specialists on the team! You’d be in charge of bringing the characters to life and giving our sprite & CG artist a good reference to work with, but the creative licence is pretty much all yours - we’ll be giving you some references and descriptions to take from, but otherwise you can be as creative as you like with outfits, hair, whatever!
The sheets can also be a little messier since they’re only for inhouse use, so if you’re in a bit of a slump and aren’t in the mood for finished lineart, a colored sketch will suit this project just fine c;
If you’re applying for one of the other artist spots, you’re more than welcome to take this role as well~


☆ BG artist - CLOSED! Thank you for the interest!
Neon lights! Ridiculous stage design! Vague quality requirements!
If this sounds like your jam, then welcome aboard!
As BG artist you won’t have a huge amount of work on your plate, since it's a short game and there are only a few BGs required. Both hand-drawn and 3D modelled styles (and mixtures of the two) are fine!


☆ Programming Sensei! - CLOSED! Thank you for the interest!
I'm planning to do most of the programming myself, but I'm still pretty new to Ren'py and coding in general!
This project is going to be a learning experience, so if anyone would like to be available to give me a bit of mentoring (or just be there for me to cry on while I mash my face against the keyboard), consider yourself on board!



★ The Current Team ★
Co-Writer & UI (and Project Lead): yours truly
Co-Writer: parttimestorier
Character Design: Ammy
BG artist: Zylinder
Sprites & CGs: spaceoutstation
Programming:
A good friend of mine from outside Lemma is also going to be working on some custom music for us! ;w;

As for me, I haven’t been working on VNs for an extraordinarily long time - about a year or so - and so far I only have my first solo project completed (Nanairo). I have, however, worked with a few projects on Lemma already as an editor! I also have years of writing behind me and some professional editing experience under my belt.


★ Money?! ★
ahh, always the question, isn’t it!
While there's a couple of options I'm leaning towards, I haven’t decided whether or not to monetise the final game (and if so, the method of doing so), and I think it’s fair to decide that as a team, not for me to dictate what I’ve decided we should do.
If you would like to be in on the project but require monetary compensation, I’d still love to hear from you! I’m definitely willing to discuss a one-time payment (or possibly revshare? but more likely the former) whether or not the project goes commercial, so get in touch ;w;
This project will be coordinated using mainly Trello and Discord, so if you already use either of those platforms that’s a plus c:

If you're interested in any of the roles above, please post here and/or shoot me a PM (or an email at timepatches/at/gmail.com), with what role/s you’re interested in. (Please include your Lemma username if you’re sending me an email). I’d also like to see a portfolio of some sort - doesn’t have to be extensive, just a few of your previous works or links to projects you’ve worked on previously.
Feel free to post here saying you PM’d or emailed me, in case I don’t catch it!



Thank you for reading and I hope to hear from you soon! ♥

While I am a little too busy writing my own monstergirl project to consider joining your writing team (though I would really love to!), I just want to say that I love your premise and will be looking forward to the game! I'd be happy to help out with brainstorming if you need some more hands. I'm very familiar with the lore/history/designs of demihumans as a years-long fan of the genre. Great to see more love for monsters / demihumans around here!

Thanks so much to everybody for the applications! DD is all set for artists and programming help, but we're still looking for another cowriter.
If you're interested, please make sure to introduce yourself and include some examples of past projects when you apply!

Re: ★ [OPEN - Writers!] DemiDato Looking for a Team!

I'm interested in joining the team as a writer!!!
I actually love watching If You Are The One (or Fei Cheng Wu Rao as it's called in Chinese) so the concept sounds really awesome. I think I could easily get into the mode of one of the girls being very judgy and giving criticism to the contestant XD
I'm happy to do the route of one or two characters.
In regards to past samples... I really only have one demo game that I've released at this point in time. Feel free to check out the game here: https://red-baby.itch.io/free-arabian-nights-demo It's really the only sample of writing in a visual novel format that I have.
