That's right, I'm going to try making a dating sim.
Right now I'm coming up with character designs, and DeviousBee is going to help write for the characters. Thing is, so far I have 6 romance-able characters, and I have absolutely no idea how to write romance.
THIS IS WHERE YOU COME IN
If you have any input on character personalities, you want to write some dialogue for the characters, or you think another character would be beneficial, please let me know! [on a side note: I'd like to try and keep all dialogue options similar to Bioware's system of having 3 response choices ((paragon, neutral, renegade // positive, comedic, negative )). Please keep this in mind when writing for a character~]
[please also keep in mind that by suggesting to add a character, that means dialogue will have to be written for them, so please don't just submit a bunch of character ideas, I think 8 total would be pushing my limits.]
I will have to option to select either a male or female character at the start of the game, all characters will be romance-able by either gender.
Right now, there are 3 males and 3 females.
The town consists of a restaurant, a cafe, a library, a flower shop/produce vendor, and mechanic's garage.
Here's my concept for a guy who works at the flower shop:
[[ sweet deredere boy (✿◡‿◡) ]]
There's also a sarcastic rowdy mechanic, loveable Tsundere librarian man, and 3 sisters who operate the cafe [a shy and klutzy glasses character, a Himedere, and a rough n rowdy character].
[all of which were inspired by avatars I made on Gaia, oops.]
DeviousBee and I also discussed the possiblity of having a bartender in the restaurant and a waiter/waitress if you wanted to fill those spots with a suggestion.
I'm using RPG Maker XP. IF ANYONE HAS SKILL WITH PIXEL ART AND WOULD LIKE TO SUBMIT TILESETS OR SPRITES, IT WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED!
I'll draw the character reaction images, but I'm no good at making sprites.
My ask box and submits on Tumblr are open!!
Please contact me via Tumblr if possible, as I check that more frequently.
[[Please also keep in mind that I'm just doing this for fun and if real life situations such as school or work get in the way, there might be some delays.]]
