/jp/ VN Project Thread - The Warehouse
« on: April 21, 2010, 07:13:59 am »
I've preempted to make this thread for the project before it gets trolled to death on /jp/, though that may be a bit too late. But I'll post the concepts art here anyway, and later the actual plot concept if and when we actually decide on something solid.

Tentative plot summary:
The MC is a hiki whose parents died, and had been living off his inheritance. He wasted most of his youth and money just browsing the internet and sleeping the days away. In his late 20s, he realize he is starting to run out of money and he was eventually kicked out of his house. Wandering around the streets like a hobo, he was close to planning on killing himself. Luckily, a church girl spotted him, and takes him to a homeless shelter (warehouse) where he meets other homeless people. Initially, he is a moocher, but as he interacts with other characters, he begins to change and help "work" for his meals.

Take 2:
Protag: Graduated from high school fine, only 1 true friend made though (Chris). Had high aspirations in life, applied to many schools. Parents died and left him a lot of money. He became depressed/NEET. Mooches off parent's money for many years till he runs out of money and is kicked out. More shit, but just basics.

Character: MC, Nina (Artistic Girl), Lucetta (Church Girl), Alexis (Homeless Reverse trap bro), Chisame (Homeless Trap Bro), Chris (High school friend/homeless bro)
Routes: Nina, Lucetta, Harem (?)
Ends: Nina (Good), Lucetta (Good), Harem (Good), Bad end (?)

Character descriptions

Chisame
Blond twintail with yellow eyes (suggest white ribbons with long hair behind even when in twintail mode
Chest size should be around B (padded)

A a sailor based top with the kind of skirt adult nanoha wears with her barrier jacket? small skirt inside large trailing skirt thing outside? Black with yellow trim

Lucetta to be black hair, green eyes, light skin.
Short nun outfit, No Habit
Rents warehouse? homeless bros work for her. They're homeless, not jobless (except for MC). They probably know/feel like she's exploiting them, but they don't care. (might also have followers?)

Chris and Alexis have red hair and hazel eyes. Nina to have brown hair, blue eyes

Not trying to nit pick of anything but shouldn't character designs be full body?

I believe these are just fairly informal sketches, full body designs will probably come up once they are more formalized.

Also, realized you can't see attachments as Guest, so I've added the Photobucket gallery in the first post as an alternative.

just helping to keep this thread recent and up to date, I'm untalented so I can't really contribute anything but the services of this server/site.

Recap

TITLE: Is it fate?
Basic Plot: The MC is a hiki whose parents died, and had been living off his inheritance. He wasted most of his youth and money just browsing the internet and sleeping the days away. In his late 20s, he realize he is starting to run out of money and he was eventually kicked out of his house. Wandering around the streets like a hobo, he was close to planning on killing himself. Luckily, a church girl spotted him, and takes him to a homeless shelter (warehouse) where he meets other homeless people. Initially, he is a moocher, but as he interacts with other characters, he begins to change and help "work" for his meals.
Basic Script: http://pastebin.com/jMtdaUpN

Protag: Graduated from high school fine, only 1 true friend made though (Chris). Had high aspirations in life, applied to many schools. Parents died and left him a lot of money. He became depressed/NEET. Mooches off parent's money for many years till he runs out of money and is kicked out. More shit, but just basics.
Characters: Lucetta(church girl), Nina (/jp/ drawfag).
Minor Characters: Chisame, Chris, Alexis, 2 undecided others.

Routes: Nina, Lucetta, Harem (?)
Ends: Nina (Good), Lucetta (Good), Harem (Good), Bad end (?)

Recap
Character Edition

Chisame
Blond twintail with yellow eyes (suggest white ribbons with long hair behind even when in twintail mode
Chest size should be around B (padded)
A a sailor based top with the kind of skirt adult nanoha wears with her barrier jacket? small skirt inside large trailing skirt thing outside? Black with yellow trim

Lucetta to be black hair, green eyes, light skin, or dark/brown skin with light hair. (To be decided when the anon that was drawing her designs wakeup)
Short nun outfit, No Habit, pantyhose
Rents warehouse? homeless bros work for her. They're homeless, not jobless (except for MC). They probably know/feel like she's exploiting them, but they don't care. (might also have followers?)
Bossy, very fanatical who is well aware she would likely like sex,and thus wears a chasity belt, but is not above teasing someone, to help punish them properly for "Impure thoughts". Keeps a diary of her own impuritys.

Nina
brownish hair, blue eyes, grey sweater, always carries a book with one hand to chest.
Chris and Alexis have red hair and hazel eyes. Nina to have brown hair, blue eyes
Something about a former /jp/ kind of life, failed at doujin, has trains EVERYWHERE.

I've made a new pastebin thing with a subdomain so we can clearly see the edits. I've also changed it a lot, still the same general story, but most of the phrasing and whatnot is changed so it's less shit.

I'm not going to edit the original post, I'm not really part of this project, people might say I'm editing things to my benefit or I'm abusing my admin powers. I'll keep updating my post though.

Noticed that the photobucket gallery doesn't seem to have full resolution? Mirrored the files that were attached in this thread over to http://kureha.no-ip.org/k1chan/o/res/39.html

I think it scales it down until you click it, but doesn't hurt to have an extra, cleaner place to put it. Though it is easier to keep it organized in photobucket, I'll keep posting there as well.

It's not like I like you or anything, but I took your working script and music file and put together a title screen and duct taped everything together in Novelty to satisfy my curiosity of what it would look like as a visual novel...mock up.

That's a nice mockup, how customizable is that engine?

Pretty dang customizable I'd say as far as appearance is concerned, though it does also support scripts for making games within your VNs.  Like for example if you want to throw in something like breakout or poker.

Other than that it has the standard stuff like switches, decision branches, character tracking, screen effects, etc.

I could get into detail, but it might end up sounding like a commercial.  So far I like it more than Renpy since it's more user friendly.

That's great I guess I'll check it out, I'm not really part of this project, but I'm interested in VNs, I experimented a little with http://tkool.jp/products/renai2/index.html (Renai Shimyurēshon Tsukūru2) a while back, it's just under a decade old now lol.
