My Intro: Hello, my name is Brittany Allison. My username is lemmasoft Forum is SyphyChan. I am a 21 year old girl living in Texas.
Background: This project is something I've been wanting to work on for years but life is always got in the way, added with others unreliability, it became impossible for me who was in highschool. The game is an adaptation from a novel I had worked on in highschool. It has quite a bit of sentimental value to me because it is one of my most original pieces and something I am very proud of. I wish to pursue this goal more than ever. It appears the only way I can have a reliable team of people is to hire them.
Game Type: This game would be a visual novel or otome. For those who don't know, a visual novel is basically a very simple, game or story. Usually for the pc, though more popular games have had a different console adaptation of them. There are a plethora of different types of Visual novels. There are the kinetic ones that are pretty much just visual stories that you click through. It is completely linear. Most, however, are interactive. Some more than others. Most of you should have heard of a choose-your-own-ending book. That is often the idea with visual novels except in a digital form. You are often given choices throughout the game that alter different scenes and events and ultimately alter the ending of the game. Some get even more complex with rpg systems or mini games and stat raising. This project would be in the middle; an interactive game with choice that alter the main characters path. An otome game is catered toward a female audience. It often have multiple bachelors or obtainable male characters that the main character can pursue. There is usually a distinctive branch off where you are on a certain male characters route or path and at this point can get one of his endings. This project will have romance(otome) and fantasy, mystery, and action.
What I need: I wish to hire, skilled and talented people to assist me in this endeavor. I will need an artist to take care of sprites(or the basic images of the characters in the game), the cgs(or special still pictures for certain scenes), and the background for each scene. I will also need someone to assist with the music that will play in the background of the game to enhance the experience of gameplay. I will need assistance with coding and programming for the game as well as the design of the game. I plan to write the story and script myself but will need a proofreader and editor to make sure I have used proper grammar, spelling, and vocabulary. I still have things to consider as well, like whether I want to try and have the game be voiced as well. To get a skilled person in all these field that I know will not drop out and disappear without a word I will not to offer payment for there services.
Plot: Syphethia is a young light elf about to reach maturity. She is a princess who lives in a small city that is thought of as the entire world and stays in her tiny little castle. Seeing as she is about to reach adulthood her reserved mother and demanding father want her to marry the noble Kita. This is a horrendous idea to her, especially since it seems her 'fiance' is keeping many secrets. After being abandoned on the date she was forced to go on she locks herself in the library and finds herself in the forbidden section. Being a curious elf, she ends up looking around finding all sorts of strange books that talk of creatures she's never heard of, different races of elves, and Diaries written by deceased elves. They are the diaries of the last light elves. Along with the strange books she finds a symbol on the wall. Somehow, her pendant she was given at birth, reveals itself to be the key to opening what in fact, is not a simple symbol, but a doorway to the real world. Sadly it's no longer as beautiful as it once was. After only a moment to process this information, she finds herself face to face with a disgusting, monstrous...elf?
