For those who keep up with my Official Ko-Fi Page, then you already know the progress stance. For those of you who do not, feel free to use the provided link above or the one below. So for the past week almost I have been dialing away at my very own Visual Novel. This has been an item of my own obsession for the past seven years now. It’s only just now that I have mustered some form of push to see it through.
The Ota Kamiya Project is my standing title for it and I feel as if it is a sound choice. I want this project to turn into something, beyond just a one-off. I know for some that this is something they only see through once, just to tack it up on the wall. I would love for this to be something that could just… work for me. I love animation, Japanese animation specifically, and its way with story telling. Visual Novel’s have their own unique quirks and characteristics when it comes to storytelling. Ren’Py is an open source program that aims at providing a template and starting point for creators. It has spawned many a successful project, including Doki Doki Literature Club.
Now I have stated before that I wasn’t going to use Ren’Py, but the fact is I shouldn’t discount it for not having publicly useable assets. I will take this program lovingly and work with it the best that I can.
While it is a beast at mastering, I feel it is the right option for my project. I still have to contend with getting character art done, which will be the sole driving force behind my Ko-Fi page. I would love to keep working with Milkgrrl in this regard, so I will have to ask you all to bear with me in this step. Currently, I have three chapters in the works each with 12 scenes. This is by far the single most ambitious project I have taken on outside of university and I have to say I am a bit scared and daunted by the prospect.
While I am anxious, I am also hopeful. Scene 1 of Chapter one took me two days to script and I hope I can carry that sort of momentum forward. I will be posting all of my updates first through Ko-Fi. I want to reward the people who view and follow it all first. I am currently running a special for those who purchase me three boba milk teas will be granted a copy of the Alpha demo outside my initial testing group. So please consider checking out my progress over on Ko-Fi and I hope to bring you all something awesome later this year!
