Phantom of the Blooming Rose [GxB] [Mystery/Romance/Royalty] [Kinetic] [Free]

DEMO RELEASE DATE TO BE ANNOUNCED THIS NOVEMBER!

The allegiance of the 5 big kingdoms over the past century, Ashwell Kingdom located at the center and being the biggest and most influential, Thamor Kingdom in the west who boasts of military excellence and revolutionary weapons created, Loseon Kingdom in the north known for their rich agriculture and reign over the mountainous regions, Maicheven Kingdom in the east known for increased trades and mastery in the craft of aerial weapons and transportation such as aeroplanes, and lastly the Richmond Kingdom, a seaside kingdom and the last to join the allegiance with a relatively recent lineage, has made the country of Eclaria successful in almost all aspects, outgrowing the others found within its vicinity.

However, despite the harmonious relationships of these kingdoms, a notorious phantom thief lurks around the whole country with a hidden identity, stealing the most revered artifacts, leaving no kingdom free from his hands. Gems, chests, crowns and scepters from the past generations, he leaves none of the precious artifacts behind. No one knows particularly why the phantom thief commits such crimes, as the stolen artifacts are nowhere to be seen. Recently, the phantom thief has sent a message for Ashwell Kingdom, declaring his plans of stealing a prized possession that they treasure.

While Ashwell is governed by matriarchy, Rose D'elaphontaine Ashwell, only child of the Ashwell family and next in line to the throne, seizes the opportunity to catch the infamous phantom thief and put a stop to his crimes, therefore deeming herself worthy of serving the kingdom in the eyes of her constituents as well as the Queen herself. For the past century, the Ashwells have governed their kingdom this way, with the Queen Regent as the Head of the Kingdom and the King as her General. However, Rose is clueless as to who and what the real phantom thief is capable of, and in her case, what she doesn't know can truly harm her.

As Rose gets closer to the truth, she comes to experience baffling emotions and these foreign feelings cause a stir inside of her. She comes across two dashing men with a recognizable social status and one who has always stood by her side. Because of the phantom thief, her life takes a major 180-degree turn, changing the princess who only knew of proper courtesy, political talks and marriage solely out of convenience. When she finds out the whole truth, will she go according to plan and ascend to the throne with flying colors, or will she risk everything in the name of love?

Ooooh, so excited to see this thread. Lez told me about this project a while ago.

1. The storyline sounds interesting, because I love a good mystery. x3 There's something about a gentleman thief that's so alluring, I guess.
2. Rose appeals to me most, I like her attitude and her desire to prove herself. I hope she doesn't lose that throughout the story.
3. I'm interested in playing it, though I have to say that I'd probably be even more interested if there were different endings, such as success and failure in finding the thief, or deciding whether to pursue love or her duties. I understand if the story doesn't have room for that, and I'll still want to play it, but since kinetic novels are less popular and you're already done with the main script, I'd suggest considering adding branches if you can without it ballooning too much.
4. It'll be Rose! Mwahahaha. But no, I have no clue, mainly because so little is known about the thief's motivations.
5. Good luck! I'll be following this to see how it turns out.

1. I'm not the average otome reader, but I like the mystery behind the whole glamour royalty story! Tbh, my first two associations that came to mind were "Phantom of the Opera" because of the mask, and "Cat's Eye" because of the thief stealing items.

2. Protag and Oliver. Aesthetics ahoy. Also, I like inquisite, strong characters as much as free-spirited ones. I hope Protag doesn't change to much when she learns how to L O V E

3. I agree with Empish - sincw you have such an impressive amount of words finished already, don't worry about forcing choices into it. Maybe add something else that will make this KN stand out?

4. I'm going with Protag. She has the mask on the sketch pic - SHE IS HIDING SOMETHING

5. I hope you can gain a lot of interest for this, because it looks promising!

It is such an honor to get feedback from three amazing people in this community just 24 hours after we published this thread! We cannot be happier <3

That makes both of us! I'm very glad to know that you find the storyline interesting enough :D The goal is to cause a stir within the readers and to deliver a satisfying story ^^
Empish wrote: 2. Rose appeals to me most, I like her attitude and her desire to prove herself. I hope she doesn't lose that throughout the story.
She won't! Although some of her antics may be questionable, our heroine is very determined to prove herself worthy of becoming the Queen Regent! I am very happy to know that the protagonist appeals to the player most, as the story will be told through her point of view ^^

To be honest, this is the first vn script I made back in the day, so I was hesitant to go on branching. Everything's already set in solid stone, and I'm afraid I love it the way it is. There's a huge risk in the whole plot/sequence falling apart if we make any changes now or have any additions. The sequence is tightly knit together, and while I do agree with almost everything that was said above, I believe that it's what we planned for in the beginning and all that's left to do is to embrace it ❤ Your opinions highly matter to us, thank you for reaching out! If everything goes well for us, Phantom of the Blooming Rose may have a huge sequel in the future ^^
Empish wrote: 4. It'll be Rose! Mwahahaha. But no, I have no clue, mainly because so little is known about the thief's motivations.
An interesting choice! We hope the phantom thief doesn't disappoint ^^

Thanks a bunch! Please look out for us ❤

That is a relief to hear ^^ Thank you very much for your generous compliments!

Master Richard is definitely an intimidating character at best, if not second to our very own heroine.

We hope that you enjoy the storyline for Phantom of the Blooming Rose!

It is one of the characters! And yes, Richard may have one of the strongest reasons to be the best candidate, indeed.

Coming from a distinguished oelvn developer as yourself, we are thrilled to bring this game to you! Thank you so much and please look out for us ❤

If phantom from the world renowned play was a thief, he might just be the person that Princess Rose is looking for! ^^ We have many inspirations for this visual novel :D

Rose and Oliver are strong contrasts, so they definitely make an interesting duo! And yes, Ashwell will always be Rose's top priority.... or is it?

We will definitely take it into account! We hope to bring a positive light to KNs, so the team and I will discuss about this matter further ^^ Your suggestions are very valuable to us!

An interesting deduction! We hope you look forward to what the princess has in store! ^^

1)I definitely like this kind of prime games,especially with a good mystery in it it would be so perfict.

2) actually I liked all the characters and the important thing that the main character is beautiful,also I liked Daniel he is so cute😍.

3)well I didn't play much games like this so I as am interesting in it.

4)hmm,this is a hard question but I think it's Rose because she is the main character so mostly it will be about her,I guess.

5)is there any sercret route or path?
And I want to say that you did a great job with the art and story,I wish you best and good luck

This used to be a fantasy as well, so we are bringing it to reality!
oOhanaOo wrote: 2) actually I liked all the characters and the important thing that the main character is beautiful,also I liked Daniel he is so cute😍.
Ah, we agree! You get to play through the story as the heroine, so that is very important to us! Master Daniel is a refreshing addition to this solid pack!
oOhanaOo wrote: 3)well I didn't play much games like this so I as am interesting in it.
We plan to be a game changer in the field of kinetic visual novels, so we hope you like it! The game will basically have a linear story, which does not involve heavy branching (if not none at all). To us, this is the true meaning of a kinetic novel.
oOhanaOo wrote: 4)hmm,this is a hard question but I think it's Rose because she is the main character so mostly it will be about her,I guess.
Interesting thoughts! The everybody shares different opinions so far, so we are curious to see how everyone will feel about the phantom thief's hidden identity!
oOhanaOo wrote: 5)is there any sercret route or path?

If we told you, then it wouldn't be a secret, don't you think? :wink: Thank you so much! Please look forward to more updates from us and we hope that you will join us on this journey together!

1; It certainly does! Sounds like a lot of writing went into the backstory and lore behind the kingdoms, it would be interesting to learn more about them.
2; The characters seem likable and fleshed out, what jumps out to me is Richard and Rose. It seems like Rose isn't the usual boring protagonist Otome games tend to have, so I'm excited to see what she's like!
3; They're fine, although they can drag because of the lack of options. Or maybe I just need plot stuff happening to be interested, but it seems like lack of plot/things happening won't be a problem with your story?
4; For some reason, Oliver or Richard... but I have no idea
5; Nothing else really, except, as I stated before, I hope the protagonist won't be as bland and helpless as other Otome games.

I really like the sound of it, and the classic style sounds amazing. I would love to play it!
(the characters are also drawn really nicely, just fyi~)

Been seeing this title float around for awhile now, so I'm excited to see that the official WIP thread is up!

1. Does the storyline sound interesting to you? What is your first impression of the game?
- Very intriguing. I love a good, twisted mystery and strong protagonist, so this game seems like a great fit for me. My first impression of the game is "Phantom of the Opera" only because of the title, but the premise and art has definitely caught my attention!

2. What do you think about the characters? Which individual appeals to you the most?
- I like the characters. Oliver is completely my type, so he was the first one who appealed to me. For some reason, he seems like the type who is hiding something, so I will be keeping my eye out for him.

3. Would you be interested in playing a kinetic novel like Phantom of the Blooming Rose? What do you think about kinetic novels?
- Yes! I have no strong opinion, either positive or negative, about kinetic novels. My biggest concern is just the story, so if the story is still immersive and intriguing, then that's all that I can ask for!

4. Take a wild guess: who do you suspect to be the phantom thief?
- It's either Oliver or Albert. I just say Albert because meganes always seem to be masking something... (I say this, but I also wear glasses, haha.) Oliver because I have a strong gut feeling. Let's find out if I'm wrong!

5. Any other comments, questions and/or additional feedback?
- Good luck on the game! Super excited to see more updates. And I have high hopes for our lovely MC. I can't wait to see her growth throughout the story! I'm also interested in seeing what kind of music Jeff is going to be making for this game, as he's also making the tracks for PPR. He's super great at what he does!

Ah, exactly! This is what I had in mind when we were crafting our very own heroine - the otome world has enough of the bland protagonists and we need someone who can stand on their toes, a heroine who doesn't need a man to define her, but rather, to stand with her. One of the themes for this VN is women empowerment!

The plot was designed to be engaging as we definitely considered this while creating the story. A lot of stuff happens in every chapter, so we hope that it is enough to pay for the lack of options in the usual interactive visual novel.

They are both interesting characters, and we've planned lots of things in store that will give all the persons of interest a good reason to commit such a crime.

There will be feminine moments, but our protagonist won't be the type to get swayed just yet. Please look forward to more adventures with Rose!

We're very happy! You can say that phantom of the opera is one of our influences for the game (minus the singing) but there is always something intriguing about a classic, gentlemanly criminal. We hope you stick around with our heroine ^^

1. Does the storyline sound interesting to you? What is your first impression of the game?
It does sound interesting. Since it has my most favourite genre of all the time romance, of course, I will prepare the ships to be sailed. Honestly, the storyline can be somewhat generic but it all depends on the protag personality and writer's capabilities to make it interesting. As of now, it piqued my interest.

My first impression? Another ship to be sailed... Another game to be played... and another mystery to be unveiled...

2. What do you think about the characters? Which individual appeals to you the most?
I hope Rose will not disappoint me. Because you know... lots of female protags are pretty disappointing. Even if the protag is supposed to be superhumanly strong, it is ironic that she can be suppressed by a bunch of mobs just for a scene where male interests will save her. I sure hope that this will not happen. Design-wise, I am immediately attracted to Richard. Personality-wise, I don't have one right now. I need more info to think which personality appeals me the most.

3. Would you be interested in playing a kinetic novel like Phantom of the Blooming Rose? What do you think about kinetic novels?
Yes, I do. What do I think about kinetic novels? Well, I don't mind. If done well, it can be really, really awesome.

4. Take a wild guess: who do you suspect to be the phantom thief?
Hmm... Cliche-wise, it may be Albert. Identity-cliche-wise, it must be Richard. Design-wise, it has to be Oliver. In other words, I don't know. Thus I want to know. Fufufu~

5. Any other comments, questions and/or additional feedback?
Art is awesome! The summary of the story is a bit long but is well-written. I'm anticipating this!

Hi DAX
Happy to hear you like the track. Jeff has been awesome, coming up with amazing music for PotBR, so we hope everyone enjoys the rest of the game's soundtrack as much as we do.

=)
