VN PROJECT: SOS: The Genderswap Chronicles
 
Now, before you guys tie me to a stake over a fire and demand fast release of this game...

Since I've decided to take over programming, this will essentially be a one-man project, so don't expect it to come out by the end of this year or anything. I would prefer to program the VN myself so I can work at my own pace without having to worry about my programmers going MIA or quitting halfway.

Ok, now on to the technical stuff

SOS: The Genderswap Chronicles
*ALL THINGS SUBJECT TO CHANGE AS I WORK ON THE VN*

VN Engine: Ren'Py 6.10.2
Projected Release: 2011
Genre: Comedy, Romance (both kinds, cough), Horror (only slightly), Action, Adventure
Plot: You start off as a young woman by the name of Dani, who suddenly falls unconscious after drinking a mysterious liquid on her counter top. When she wakes up, she finds herself in the middle of post-apocalyptic Earth, and she also finds out that she is no longer a she. You then play as Danny, a dashing young man who is clueless about his surroundings and require the help of local residents to survive and return back to his female body. Unbeknownst to the protagonist, the local residents happen to be Dani's friends before she fell unconscious, and like Dani, they were also genderswapped in this crumbling dystopia. Neither party have any memories of one another, so it is up to you to choose a 'friend' to trust and to rebuild those memories with until you are able to escape from post-apocalyptic Earth and return to your female body. Depending on who you choose to trust, you may end up living happily ever after or dead. Or both.
Characters: Dani (Danny), Geno (Me), Shani (Shnao), Sheep (Sheep), Shinkka (Shinkky), Finette (Fineti), ????, ???? (indicates surprise characters)

Your maso knows no ends 8|
I understand the need to work at your own pace, especially with your hectic schedule; however, if you need any assistance on the programming portion of the project I can lend a hand. Just send me an assignment, a deadline, and I'll get it done.

But, if you prefer to one man it, go for it. It's your project and you're the boss o/ Good luck

Adun 07-20-2010 01:56 PM

Hahahah, I like the idea a lot. Good luck with this. Can't wait to try playing this whenever you decide to release it.

Dani 07-20-2010 02:14 PM

So lucky Soda. :psyduck:
...Wish Yume was in it too though, I'd wonder how she would fit.

Ascherit 07-29-2010 09:32 PM

Lol, all characters in this VN will be SOS-centric -- AKA only current members of the guild will be in this VN

So alas, no bodyguards will be involved in this VN (sorry to burst your bubble Sheep)

Shnao 07-29-2010 09:45 PM

It's to make us feel special to be a part of SOS Brigade. :jj: Instead of ashamed.

Shiki 07-29-2010 11:36 PM

Shrine maiden..:kamina:

Sears always told me I'm part of SOS. Does that count? 8D

Sanichi 07-30-2010 07:09 AM

This VN still entertains me.

Spoiler!

I can't wait to see where this goes. c:

Shnao 07-31-2010 09:06 AM

^ Wow, you're still around here. XD Hi Ying!

Harjiwan 08-01-2010 01:17 PM

should make a gender swap of bubble 8D
She's been SOS for as long as I remember mang
We really appreciate the effort you put into this gina, I wish I could help in some way XP

Ascherit 08-02-2010 09:12 PM

Unfortunately, as much as I would love to include everyone in SOS, I am still a one-man army and therefore programming/churning out cgs would be a hassle if I had 10+ character routes to plow through. Character choices were based on whoever was in the msn group while I was discussing the initial idea of genderswap. However, I will consider the possibility of adding other SOSers as minor characters (ones without a route) with small cameos here and there.

Also, small update (look at first post for details).

After reading/skimming through the tutorial I've managed to lay out a basic script for the prologue and define some scenes/sounds.

I am slowly getting the hang of programming, so updates should be a tad more frequent (until school starts, that is).

Harjiwan 08-04-2010 03:08 AM

You could get paid to do this you know :jj:
