I've actually been skulking around the forums of Lemma Soft for quite awhile now
Worked on a few visual novels' plots but the game was never finished - Therefore I shall take matters into my own hands HAHA! I would like to introduce you to this project-
Seat of Power - Well, this is a working title for now.
However, I have always been inspired by stories from movies such as the famed Grave of the Fireflies, anyone here a fan?
Let me continue pitching my idea to you -
Summary of story:
------------------The game is divided into three sections – Where a fictional family of four resides in Japan during the closing stage of the Second World War.
The Yukimura family, a zaibatsu that owns interests from agriculture to arms-making is facing a crisis in Japan. The head of the family, the elderly Hisashi Yukimura has been able to use his political connections to prevent his son and grandson from being drafted into the military. However, Kichiro Yukimura, his grandson - a young, fervent nationalist is determined to aid Japan in its war against the western invaders.
Ryota Yukimura, Kichiro’s father and Hisashi’s son, is however, making a deal that if discovered, will be considered the ultimate act of treason in Japan.
Miyuki Yukimura, however, is caught in between her role as a mother and one who is despised by the elderly Hisashi for her “western” ways.
Notable events: Battle of Okinawa (1 April – 21 June 1945) & Bombing of Shizuoka (June 19, 1945)
I have already written quite a fair bit of the story - However, I have a dream which is to make sure that EVERY decision you make in this story MATTERS. Even if it will pain my fingers to write just a little more, I will do it. A good and solid story that makes you reflect after going through it, that is my goal.
As a former history student, I will make sure that the story for the game matches history as much as possible, though, clearly, there will be some deviation from reality for dramatization purposes.
I am currently looking for a team that is willing to stay with me throughout the project and work on it with me and turn this story into a reality. I am open, known for being honest and direct in my dealings.
I am currently looking for-
A logo designer!
Sound - CLOSED
Music - CLOSED
Ren'Py Programmer - CLOSED

I am unable to pay you for your work, however, as I intend to bring the game to the very end, which is to say, publish it for sale eventually, on various platforms, I am more than happy to give you a cut of the profit for your work.
"Oh, I've seen your type of visual novels a thousand times..."
Hey, perhaps. Perhaps not. However, I have a lot of friends in the media industry (being in it myself) and these people will be more than happy to provide us with free coverage. So I got PR covered. PR is MOST CRUCIAL to the backbone of any game.
I do not believe in traditional marketing. That is a thing of the past. Right now, it is all about social media and who is better at using it. Combined with media relations, I am confident that together, we can forge a project and novel that will convince people - "This will be good, let us try it."
I really hope that I would be able to hear from you guys soon! If you have questions, do not hesitate to drop a comment below, and I will do my very best to answer you!
