Iris Dream [NaNo 2016] - BETA Completed :D

#1 Post by Miyuu » Wed Mar 02, 2016 10:32 am

Since we've taken every suggestions into consideration, we have finally decided that we're going to have partial voice acting! :) We're recruiting voice actors for each of the character's lines, which shouldn't be too long, with less than 25 lines for each character. Please go to the link below for audition. Thank you! :D - VAs found for all roles, thank you to those who participate in the audition! :D
Genre:
- GxB
- Romance
- Slice of life
- Otome

Synopsis:

This is a story of hopes, dreams and clutching them tightly, never wanting to let them go. However, some things aren't as easy as they sound.

Regina is a talented, semi-famous singer with her own fan base. She's very passionate about singing on stage, and nobody can deny that she has an amazing voice. To her, singing is about conveying messages and her emotions through music.

However, she discovers that she's losing her voice. Every day, her voice gets hoarser and lower in volume. At first, it was just a mild case of laryngitis, but it eventually proves to be much more. She may permanently lose her voice. She becomes more and more depressed.

Meanwhile, the people around Regina are encouraging her by telling her that there's a chance of recovery, or that there are other, new ways she has yet to discover which she can use to express her feelings.

Will she be able to recover? Will she find another medium wherein she can freely express her feelings? Will she find romance and happiness? Or will she fall into the pit of despair?

Questions:

- What do you think of the premise? Would you be interested in playing the game once it's done?
- Which character would you be interested in knowing more about?
- Would you still be interested in playing the game if it had no CGs? The game will have CGs! :D
- Do you have any suggestions, or is there any special content you'd like to see in the game?

- What do you think of the premise? Would you be interested in playing it once it's done?
Sure, I think I'd like to try playing it. Usually I come for the art and stay for the story, though, so hopefully both will be good~

- Which character would you be interested to know more?
The heroine, for her choices, and Sieg. Because of his name. Sieghart from Rave I can't

- Would you still be interested to play the game even without CGs?
Yes! As long as the sprites are properly cleaned and don't clash with BG, I think it's acceptable.

- Is there any suggestion or something different that you'd like to see in the game?
Ideally, lots of music + songs with lyrics + Regina's voice actress. Because that seems to be the theme of the VN. :)
LMAO okay only half kidding. I think I'd like to see this kind of conversation flags implemented?

Good luck for your game, because I think we're in the same predicament now hahaha.

Thank you for answering. :D I hope the game will meet (or exceed xD) your expectations.

Oh no, Sieghart from Rave is one of my favourite characters in Rave too, besides Plue the weird creature. xD I haven't read the manga in a while now, it's gotta be one of the best storyline ever, with the right amount of action and comedy.

I'm glad you'd play it, since people sometimes want to see CGs and they will be turned off when there's zero CG.

xD There will be soundtracks, yes, but I'll see about songs and voice acting, since I have no plans to implement them yet. :'D As for conversation flags, looks like a good challenge, hopefully we can cater to that. :D

I like it, id totally like to play it!

- Which character would you be interested in knowing more about?
Walker seems very cute, i think he is my favorite so far

- Would you still be interested in playing the game if it had no CGs?
CGs are nice of course, but i dont mind not having them if i like the story/characters enough

- Do you have any suggestions, or is there any special content you'd like to see in the game?
Um... I cant think of anything to specific but Id like to see the romance options interact with each other in fun/interesting ways, instead of only with the MC

Good luck!!

Oooh I love the character concepts :D Really nice!

- What do you think of the premise? Would you be interested in playing the game once it's done?
Yeah, I think it will be a really interesting story to tell :) I'd love to see how it plays out.

- Which character would you be interested in knowing more about?
Layne and Seig. The main character sounds interesting as well.

- Would you still be interested in playing the game if it had no CGs?
I think so, but one or two would be nice XD

- Do you have any suggestions, or is there any special content you'd like to see in the game?
Cool music. Layne dancing. A really well written story exploring Regina's depression.

Ah, you post the character sheets. :)
That will make the WiP thread more interesting to look at. Good luck with your NaNo!

Wow, okay. It's definitely rare that I see the cast of LIs and love them all. I just. (Also I immediately crushed on Sieg bc that hair man that hair I love) (I also love his personality jaoiwehoriawhrea AND WALKER. I love those two.)


- What do you think of the premise? Would you be interested in playing the game once it's done?
YES. I actually love the idea. It's just... It really makes me wonder what the other characters can bring to the table, you know. I really like it, and I definitely will play it.

- Which character would you be interested in knowing more about?
ALL AHAHAHA. I really do like them all.

- Would you still be interested in playing the game if it had no CGs?
Of course! CGs are like-- kind of like cinnamon to my coffee. It adds something, but coffee without it is still a damn good drink.

- Do you have any suggestions, or is there any special content you'd like to see in the game?
LOTS OF CHARACTER MOMENTS PLEASE. Also-- can I have the ability to talk to other characters other than the one I'm pursuing without ruining my chance for the ending? (aka having the points to get the romantic ending to be a bit lower so I can spend some time with others??)
It's probably asking for a lot lmao but yeAH I just find that the theme might fit some friendship themes alongside the romance so.......
But of course, finish the baseline first.

I think I like the premise, the story made my heart wrenched! :cry:
- Which character would you be interested in knowing more about?
Walker. He looks like RalphSenpai! :lol:
- Would you still be interested in playing the game if it had no CGs?
Yep. Totally, because of the story, i guess? :3 :wink:
- Do you have any suggestions, or is there any special content you'd like to see in the game?
I just want to see an ending where she lost her voice but everyone still loved her. :cry:

Thank you for the suggestion, for looking forward to this and the luck, I need them all! xD I do want them to interact with each other rather than the MC with the love interests alone. :D

Thank you, Attlebridge is a great artist! :D Thank you for the suggestion! We have a composer ready for the event, so look forward to some good music. :D I'll keep in mind regarding exploring her depression, I hope it's up to your expectation. :)

Thank you, I'm so glad you like all the characters! :D There will be character moments, and i do plan on adding scenes for the romance interests to talk together. It's more of a linear VN than dating sims though, so pick the right choices. xD That's a good suggestion, I like seeing platonic relationship in VNs too, so might implement it here. :D

Thank you for the suggestion! That would actually make a pretty good ending imo. :)

Thank you for the support and suggestions, our team is grateful and appreciative for the support we have received. :D We'll continue to work hard so we can meet everyone's expectation. I really thought it would be a turn off without CGs, but thank you for proving otherwise. :) Even without CGs, we will try to polish this game as good as it can be. We've also taken every suggestions into consideration, so please look forward to it! :D

- What do you think of the premise? Would you be interested in playing the game once it's done?
Very much so!

- Which character would you be interested in knowing more about?
Layne sounds pretty interesting, but looking forward to learning more about them all :D

- Would you still be interested in playing the game if it had no CGs?
Sure. Usually if the story is well written then I don't even notice if it has little art and things!

- Do you have any suggestions, or is there any special content you'd like to see in the game?
Not sure, everything sounds awesome, and I am in love with the character designs. Seriously love the colours used.

Good luck with NaNo!

It's pretty cute though, and it's a good start for logo making. :D
