I’ve been thinking of making a short weight-gain-centric Visual Novel ever since I joined this site, and I finally started to lay out the groundwork.
It’s only in it’s infant stages as of right now, but I’ve started to write down and plan out how the story will unfold, and how the choices of the player will affect the story.
The game will feature only the one girl, Violet, as to keep myself motivated to actually finish this little project, and not land in feature creep hell. She’ll have multiple stages of weight, and there’ll be a few different endings depending on what you choose throughout the game. The game will be set in a modern school setting, and the characters will be 18 years old.
The engine I’m going to use will be Visual Novel Maker, since I picked it up along with RPG Maker MV in a bundle from before. I don’t have any pictures to share with you just yet, but I’ll show you a picture from yEd to help you visualize how I plan out my work. I’ll also include another drawing I’ve done before, so you know what to expect from a visual standpoint.
Now, for the reason I shared this with you so early, I’d like to know some preferences that you have;
The player character will not be depicted in-game visually, but you’ll be able to name them like in other games, but how do you feel about the characters gender (vote in the poll below, or add your thoughts in the comments)?
EDIT: Thanks for voting everyone! You can find my post about the results several posts below.
- I want them to be Male
- I want them to be Female
- I don’t want any of the characters to adress me in any gender specific way (heavy usage of they will be used when referred to you)
- I really don’t care
That’s all for now, if you’ve got more questions please feel free to ask! I’m going to update this topic over time when I’ve done more progress, and might add more polls for you to vote on, so look out for that!
