In Valkyrie, you play as the leader of a team of magical girls, and you have a month to prepare for the final showdown with...your enemies. A lot of the story details are still a little fuzzy for this game, shh.
(all names are so totally wip)
You! aka Paige
Paige is athletic, outgoing, and very slightly aggressive. She's the kind of girl who bounces up and down at the edge of a football match screaming obscenities at all the players who suck. She's loyal and cheerful and friendly, but takes absolutely no prisoners. her brooch summons a pink longsword.
Your sister, Briony
Briony is a little shy around new people, but once she gets to know you she's the sharpest and funniest tool in the shed. She's got a quick wit and a sharp tongue, and once she's comfortable she doesn't hesitate to use either. She's not romanceable, but she's always got a helpful hint for her big sister. Her brooch summons two blue daggers.
She's fashionable and creative; always trying out some cool new diy tutorial she found online, or posting her own. She's got a quick temper, but she never holds a grudge. Her brooch summons a yellow flail.
Grace is calm, cool and collected. She's intelligent and studious and tall, and pretty much every younger girl has a bit of a crush on her, partly thanks to how willing she always is to tutor them. She likes children and animals a whole lot, and her brooch summons a huge green shield.
As well as being the final member of the team, Pandora was the one who brought them together. She's a shapeshifter, with her main form being a tiny purple dragon. She's an incorrigible flirt, and is just generally very charismatic. She's also a bit of a con. Her brooch summons a purple halberd.
Valkyrie is a battle/dating game, basically. Each day you can choose a few things to do, in typical VN style: you can go on patrol with your whole team (battle minigame! raises whole team friendship, gives you gold), you can go to other areas to raise stats/buy things, or you can choose a specific team member to go talk to. You can give them gifts, or engage them in conversation, which raises their friendship level. At certain levels, there are specific scenes with them where you have the opportunity to turn your friendship into something more Probably at the end each week there'll be a little bit of an info-gathering/dungeon-crawl minigame
This is what the battle system looked like in the previous go at this game idea, btw!
- Battle system
- Gift system
- Four romanceable characters
I have all the features pretty much coded up already, although I have to track down the project files, so mostly what I need to do is write up all the conversation scripts, and fix up any bugs (I seem to remember the gift system didn't work quiiite right yet). Once I've got something you can actually play, I'll probably upload it and get a new thread going in the wip projects subforum, but I don't think this project is quite ready to go there yet, haha.
anyway, I'd like to hear what people think! would you play this? am I forgetting something super crucial? what on earth should their magical names be?
