Aphrodisia: Passions of the Heart [NaNo '17] [MxM/FxF/MxF]

Title- Aphrodisia: Passions of the Heart
Genre- Romance
Pairings- MxM, MxF, FxF
Rating- 18+ for sexual content
Synopsis- In a bar, a man successfully charms a woman normally out of his league. Despite his lack of confidence, an instinctive feeling guides him in the courtship.
In a company meeting, two workers cheat on their partners inside a bathroom stall. Utterly faithful up until then, but a moment of weakness makes them submit to their base desires.
On a college campus, a young woman is struck with the desire to take her relationship with her friend to the next level. A moment of boldness completely out of character.
There are those who influence us more than we know. Whether you believe in them or not, divine gods shape the world we know. From benevolent deities to cruel devils to everything in between. Masters of their element, the work they do goes completely unnoticed. They hide among us and act in secret.
But even they were novices once. This story is of two young gods who have been put in charge of humanity's desires, and the people whose lives were touched by them.
Welcome to a world of passion and lust. Once you've had a taste, there's no turning back...
--
The game is divided into 4 parts: 3 short episodes and an epilogue. The episodes are:
[*]The Meek Masochist [MxM]
[*]The Selfish Princess [FxF]
[*]The Voiceless Singer [MxF]
Each one deals with a different character and a different romance occurring in different parts of the world. You can play them in any order, but to access the Epilogue, all the episodes must be completed.

Main Characters:
Asha "The Fertile Goddess"
Asha is one of the two twin gods of sex in charge of spurring women into lust to help her mother in bringing people together. She is a goddess that looks over women, nurturing them through their girlhood and helping them as they ease into motherhood. Her form is irresistible, drawing attention from whoever looks at her, including other women. Her domain is the fall, when the fruits of one's labor is finally reaped.

Carwyn "The Virile God"
Carwyn is one of the two twin gods of sex in charge of spurring men into lust in order to help his mother in bringing people together. He is the god that watches over men, guiding them through the transition from boyhood and watches over them when making the steps into fatherhood. It is also said that his visage draws arousal from whoever looks at him, including other men. His domain is the spring, when the seeds of life are planted.

Image
Isaac Reese
A shy youth who has a hard time making acquaintances. Despite his innocent looks and timid personality, he's quite the degenerate and is a masochist to boot.

Kian O'Malley
A young wrestler who seems to have it out for Isaac. He's actually quite intelligent and can be very charismatic, but personal issues bog him down and make him a powder keg ready to blow.

Davey Huxley
An underappreciated school prefect who tries to reign in and help the other students. As his only friend, Davey tries to help Isaac grow as a person even when his friend exasperates him.

Image
Paulina Martinez
A bubbly young woman who is regarded as the "princess" of her city. Despite her family's attempts to try and humble her, Paulina ignores them and clings tightly to her status.

Yisenia Saucedo
A no-nonsense career woman who has worked her way up Cenzontle's ranks. Her dedication to her job is shown on her body, which is covered with burns from when she worked in the factories.

Image
Hyun Kim
A former idol whose voice was damaged, forcing him to abandon his life on stage. While he remains in the public eye as a weatherman, Hyun is far from the upbeat young man that once sang in front of thousands.

Yeong Choi
A jazz singer who works for a small club. Despite being rather unknown, Yeong still puts her heart and soul into the music she sings, hoping to inspire others to sing as she was.

I should add that we'll be releasing a SFW version of this game. But while the text will be intact, you'll instead get this for the images:

Don't take the text in the middle of the screen seriously.

The sprites for the two focus characters of Episode A are finished while the writing for it is halfway finished. The goal for me (as the writer) is to at least finish an Episode a week, giving me some time to code what needs to be coded before the deadline arrives.

On another note, if you guys want to see a bit of progress in terms of art, you can always check out Katon's Twitter feed and see what's going on.

How "hardcore" is the sexual content gonna be in terms of the writing?

I love the SFW version, it's hilarious. c:

Well, there are, on average, 2 scenes per each Episode. One is more lovey-dovey and thus less graphic, while the other one will read like it was lifted from a porn book. And you shouldn't be able to stumble into one or the other accidentally since there is a clear distinction what choices will lead to what scene.

Glad to know someone found it funny.

Also, a screenshot from The Meek Masochist:

The writing for Episode A is complete (aside from a few things that can easily be done later on). Now onto B. Also, here's a pic of Carwyn for giggles:

It sounds very intriguing, I have to say. Reminds me a bit of Cloud Atlas, with different stories connected to each other.

The art looks great and I'll read it when it comes out!

Thank you!! :D

The art (at least for the first episode) is pretty much done, I just need to knock out a few more CGs. My goal is to at least get episode two done by the end of this month. I'll find it a miracle if I can get to the third episode at all.
Have some badly cropped WIPs in the meantime. :p

For some reason, this reminds me of a tumblr post, of having a story where each chapter would be a oneshot featuring a certain set of characters having no relation what-so-ever to one another. Where they play out their story.
And then, the last chapter, you find out that somehow their lives were actually connected in some way? Or something like that... <--- Very bad at summarizing.

Anyways, moving on. The premise is really inviting- even with the way the characters all seem unique and that each story taken place in a different season. I can't wait to see how all these different dynamics will work out. And surely enough, I'm already in a dilemma as to which short I'll play first.
Oh, who am I kidding, it's going to be The Meek Masochist (Though 'The voiceless singer' sounds like it'd fit right up my alley too)
Also, the sprites are just adorable! I mean, short, blushing, secretly masochistic glasses-boy? Really? I just know I'm going to end up choosing choices that equals bullying him. (Assuming that there are choices that is.)

All in all, so far so good. ^^
I can't wait to play this once it's out!
Good Luck!

Unfortunately, life blew out of control for the two of us near the end and things just pattered out. Hopefully, finishing up shouldn't take too long....
