So MW reminded me that this was a thing, and it was a thing I 100% intended to do at least a tiny bit with at least the joke path fully playable. It’s lying around somewhere on my now defunct computer, but it’s cool because I didn’t get past the coding and it was on Ren’py which uses python scripting anyway. I'm now switching to tyranobuilder because it’s largely drag and click for a simple VN game.
“Holy balls, are we actually getting this? because I’m 100% stoked.” you say?
Well, it depends on who signs up for the project. I’m willing to do one or two routes but I’m probably going to invest my effort in what I do pretty well, which is the art assets and UI. Ideally I’d like some writers to join the project because that way it’s less of a massive undertaking. Otherwise it will most likely include one singular chapter and one ending (which is joek ending).
Setting wise it’s either in the actual TV game setting, where you’ll presumably have to survive with your person of choice with some sort of handwave to allow you both to survive or something. Or it’s in a school setting, where the schools have been merged also murder is involved, maybe. Depends on what most people prefer really. It should go without mentioning that the romantic sections will stay pretty PG while we stay very faithful to the violent aspects of the game.
Tonally, it doesn’t have to be super accurate and possibly it reads like unrepentant fanwork or those really cheesy dating sims that you find on mobile - think of a VN that isn’t self aware enough to realise it’s cheesy as hell. There’s one joke ending that could maybe be completed in a few minutes, depending on how fast you read. Please don’t do the joke ending unless you want to die alone with the baconnaise jar..
The gender/appearance of the player character is not ever described in the game at all so the audience can project whatever the hell they want.
General paths more or less
- Several agonizing deaths for you [Bad End]
- Several agonizing deaths for your love interests.
- Did I mention death?
- 4 Male love interests.
- 4 Female love interests.
- 1 Joke ending.
- A small team of scenario writers, I'm hoping that people will be handling one to two characters at most. Just comment below.
- Your express permission as a handler to let us make this awful terrible parody, and your blessings as we potentially butcher your character in more ways than one. Of course, the scripts would be run by the handler more or less.
