But, alas! You have an ace up your sleeve! Something the other races never considered: Earth!
You studied Earth for as long as you can remember, as it was always a fascinating planet, in your opinion. And you have a pretty solid and vast knowledge of its inhabitants, geography, language, history and, most importantly: their mating habits!
After extensive research, you and a couple other graduates on Foreign Civilization Studies found two suitable suitors on Earth that could aid in expanding and improving your pool with some very much needed fresh genes. And now, you are tasked with going to Earth, blend in and, hopefully, come back with a “sample” from one of the two candidates – whichever you find more suitable for your race's needs!
Naturally, this is a lot easier said than done, since even though Vikkapie’s kind scanned for the optimal suitors, they are both a little hard to handle, on their own way. Luckily, Vik is given a generous time to accomplish their mission. However, you can’t stay on Earth forever, so the clock is ticking and Vik’s race depends on their success! Can they breed on time, or is their kind doomed to be the laughing stock of their galaxy?
=2 (or more??) endings for each character
=Cute, well made CGs (as well made I can make them!)
=Genre: a good balance between sweet/cute and serious
=Simple point system (your choices matter!)
=Modern day setting (aka THE YEAR 20XX)
Vikkapie – The Undercover Alien (shown here as human)
Nicolas Holt – A Gentle Giant
Main traits of interest for Vik's race:
Ross Druimen – Small and Angry
Main traits of interest for Vik's race:
Art Assets: Just the basic sprites are done by now (I just need to add shading to them, as you all can clearly see). Will be working on varied expressions/emotions next! This is my priority now, because having these art assets in place will allow me to focus on the story more. Also, gotta work on a design for the alien version of Vik...
Scripting/Programming: Yeah, got almost nothing done on that. Will get back to you in a moment about this………
The game would work on a “day by day” system, only it won’t show EVERY SINGLE DAY of the character’s lives, because that would be immensely boring. The only part I plan on making it day by day is the first five days or so, because then you can have a feel of how the dateable characters are and make your decision on that (I’m planning on like, making it so when you decide on one guy on the fifth day, the option to keep interacting with the other suitor is closed). It's also important to note that humans don't know bout the existence of aliens, and this is one of the key plot points, the further you go into the story (can't tell much about that otherwise I'll be giving away spoilers!)
Also, I’m working on this all on my own, and it’s likely it’ll stay that way (I might end up having help from my bae, but mostly on plot and whatnot). Although, I’m very open for suggestions and critique, and I’ll be updating this post with progress and some other stuffs
There’s a lot on the personalities of Ross and Nicolas that I didn’t really describe, because otherwise it’ll ruin the fun of “getting to know them” in game (which is a very important part of the whole experience). So, if they look a little bland, well, they are a lot more than meets the eye! And, they are hard to know for different reasons: Nicolas, because he's really distant and cold to everyone around, and Ross because he almost always comes off as rude and ends up warding off people.
Oh, and despite the fact there’s “breeding talk” in the main plot, the game is not NSFW in the least. The most that happens is some heavy make outs, and some heavy suggestion of sexy times. I love me some smut, but I don’t really feel like including it heavily in this project.
(you don’t need to answer all of them!!)
