So she cut her hair short, changed her image and vowed to start high school as a changed person. Little did she know that this image change would attract her more attention than she'd ever hoped her fully-groomed self could achieve. Though she had mostly given up on finding love and excitement in her high school days, a rather shocking encounter in the broadcasting room and a subsequent anonymous note in her locker indicates otherwise.
1. Ryuu Toudou
One of the most popular guys in the entire school. A very cheerful and out-going kind of guy who is very comfortable being popular and has no trouble sweet-talking without a moment's notice. He takes joy in making his 'fangirls' hang on his every word. He seems to have a mean streak and strangely enough, Ayane is the only one who's ever experienced it. Once she cuts her hair, she becomes a more thorough victim of his mean side and it comes to a point where she openly resents him. Regrettably -however unlikely- he is one of the suspects from the broadcasting room incident.
2. Atari Hoshikawa
A rather soft-spoken guy who seems to have trouble interacting with people. He's been in the same class as Ayane since middle school and in high school he now sits in the seat beside her. His sweet disposition has earned him the nickname, the 'class's angel'. He seems innocent enough but circumstances point him as a suspect for the broadcasting room incident as well.
Ayane's closest friend who now goes to a different high school. Though initially taken aback by Ayane's sudden change, she is one of the only people who believes that the new 'her' suits her actual personality more. For some reason she takes pride in her ability to play cupid (not that Ayane was ever convinced of these ablities).
So this is going to be my very first project and well, I wanted to start in the otome department XD. It's a one girl project, i.e despite being a newbie I'm going to be doing all the sprite drawing, coding, story writing and partial GUI making by myself. I'm a rather heavy procrastinator, so though I'd like to release this project by the end of the year. I'll move this to the W.I.P section once I actively start working on the sprites. I aim for the game to be of relatively medium length and have a few events planned out in my mind, it's only a question of structuring them out effectively.
For now, if you'd please answer the following questions.
1. Is my sprite drawing style okay for a VN?
2. Do you find the school theme too generic?
3. Are the obtainable characters okay? If not, what kind of personality would you prefer them to have?
4. Would you play the game if it had no CGs?
Thank you for taking the time to read... ^^
