oh snap who is this handsome devil
Our devchat has been quite busy with bouncing dialogue and plot points around! It’s been all of a week and we already have the route outlines, ideas for unlockable bonus content (mostly filling in side character stories/route character backstories), and several OTPs.
We’ve also got some character sketches courtesy of our lovely lineart artist, Omotteru (and our colorist, Zerp, is working on coloring one of our handsome bachelor thugs as we speak.) I won’t be posting much of that (this blog will mainly be featuring the more-finished pieces), but if you guys want to have yourselves a sneak preview while waiting for some character profiles to come up, go ahead and check them out at Omotteru’s art blog! We’ve got a deliciously motley crew of both obtainable and side characters, to say the least, and we’re sure everyone will find someone to their tastes.
Thank you all once again for your support, and stay tuned!
Thank you to everyone who applied, and also everyone in general for your overwhelming response! We’ve officially got our team for now (at least until it comes time to hit up a composer and some beta testers):
Me (DreadCop)- Writing, programming, character/route planning, lackey for basically everything that we don’t have someone else to do
Omotteru- Lineart/character design
Zerp- Coloring/character design
SaltyMonday- Background art/extra artist
Nekochi- Writing/idea bouncing
Roban- Writing/idea bouncing
Next order of business is going to be having our first big group meeting, finalizing the character designs, putting up profiles for our hot, swagtastic gangster crew, and starting in on the route planning. Stay tuned!
Heyo Tumblrs and Tumblrettes!
So what now? Now I look for a third artist for backgrounds and also start talking to the writer candidates! I’ve gotten a lot of good responses there, but the real test is to see how well they can write out dialogue for the characters. In some sense, writing a VN script is more like writing screenplays than regular fiction, so being able to focus on that dialogue is important.
So after seeing this Otome Gamer Confessions post here, I decided, hey, I like otome games, I have Ren’py, I too have never seen an otoge based off Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, let’s do it!
So I wrote a little blurb for a reimagining of Snow White in a modern gangland setting, called Snow White and the Seven Thugs. And I wrote up a profile for our heroine, complete with a little placeholder sketch.
Now this is where you guys come in. I’m more of a writer than an artist, so I could really use 2-3 artists, one to do character, CG, and background sketches, one to do the lineart and coloring, and maybe one to make a nice GUI and logo. I might also want 1-2 other writers who have previous experience with collaborative writing (yes, RPing counts) in order to help me write some routes.
If you’re interested, please reblog this post with a link to your DevArt or art blog (for artists) or some kind of sample of your writing, whether it be original or fanfiction (for writers). Also make sure to say how much time you’d be able to devote to this project and how fast you generally work. Deadline for applications is this Friday, May 10th.
