It matters not. I'm here to announce a game!
Expected release < August 2006. Yes, '<.'
At this point, I am about 40% through creating 'Our September,' (working title). All that remains to be done is to finish the code and draw the artwork. (Meaning that the story is complete and about 1/3* of the code has been...well, coded.)
For those interested, this game will be in first person with a male protagonist, set in a prestigious private school with four male 'gettable' characters and plot arcs based on a combination of variables and choices.
(assertion of heterosexuality and shameless blaming of plot flaws on affiliate)
I've tried very hard to make the game realistic in terms of interactions, such as having certain menu choices or reactions to menu choices based on variables set by previous menu choices. (i.e, if you've been a complete jerk to %(character)s all game and your character score is painfully negative, he will not only refuse to let you share his dorm but will probably reciprocate your rudeness as well.)
Rating-wise, I'd probably give it a 13+ just to be safe, since it is BL and there are a few paths that lead to mildly suggestive (and I mean VERY mild) scenes.
What do you think?
*by 1/3, I mean 'I truly hope it's 1/3 but I can't be sure since the plot web looks more like a blueprint for some sort of alien technology.'
That actually a very ambitious design feature, looking forward.maru wrote:I've tried very hard to make the game realistic in terms of interactions, such as having certain menu choices or reactions to menu choices based on variables set by previous menu choices.

BL... why not, bring on the guys... Although in all the BL stories I went through in games, manga etc, there was rarely anything "guy-ish" about them. Most of all they looked very feminine, long hair etc... talking about literature and honor. Which is fine with me, I for one love figure skating for instance. But why shouldn't two guys enjoy a good game of hockey, talk about car specs and so on? That would be a nice twist. Hmmm... is it because BL stories are written by girls who don't know what an offside or an alternator is? jk ^_^ Have fun making it, that's what counts.

BL is almost exclusively intended for girls. But there are guys into it too.
The romance in BL is so absurdly stylized most of the time that it does not resemble anything like gay romance at all. But I guess the same can be said for most het ren'ai.
Maru, good luck! We can race, haha.
Yeah, that was my thought pattern when I discovered Enzai. First, I was pleasantly surprised to see that someone had actually made an English-language BL game, and I thought, "Wow, that's great!" Then I started reading Enzai's setting and character descriptions, and I'm seeing "murder", "prison", "violence", "pain", "suffering"... and I realized, "Hmm... that really doesn't appeal to me at all."clubanimon wrote:I quite enjoy BL and i think my first ever renai game to buy will be Enzai...though....its so gory >>;
Maru, I wish you the best on your project... perhaps it will turn out to be a BL game that will interest me instead of scaring me off. ^_^
