Anyone interested in making a Visual Novel?

Recommended Posts

Soo, as the question says, is anyone interested in making a visual novel? I'm an aspiring writer and ever since I've read Katawa Shoujo - besides the fact that it moved me to tears - and reading about how the devs started the whole thing, it gave me a bit of hope that maybe I could do some of it as well with those interested enough. I don't care if you're a pro or simply passionate about writing/ coding/ art design, all that I ask of you guys is just to be willing to do this and be serious about it. If you've never tried art design or coding but you've been interested in it for a long time to do so, or if you've thought about writing but never did it before, I think this is a really cool chance to see if you like the thing, and who knows, if we do manage, we'll forge new friendships on the way as well, so there's nothing to lose really. Just one thing that I ask is that you guys are really willing to go through a whole visual novel, the idea that I had is not too long, so it's not like we'll be working for years and years to come, it's just something simple and free for the rest to enjoy.

Now, for the idea itself: I've been thinking about a teacher's life, and the story is about a guy who just finished college who joins this new school and makes new friends among teachers and students alike, hangs out with some of them and tries his best at improving his own skills, etc. and, finds love in the meantime. It's not something original nor that interesting but it should be something fun to me and anyone else who's interested in writing can work on, and of course, not to mention the art designers and those willing to work on the coding. I just thought it would be fun, something done by amateurs that could prove to be really fun in the process. And as a last thing to mention, I've never worked on art design or coding before, but if in the process anyone finds himself or herself in need of a helping hand, I'm sure I could try and so some stuff in the other categories as well, and so could the rest of the people joining. Cheers!

Not gonna lie, it's an idea that I've toyed with for a while now.  Kinda a way to contribute to something that I enjoy.  That said, I'd only be able to help with the writing.  And with one person already doing the scenario, I'd really only be able to contribute in the way of research/interviews.

Depending on what program you use, I'd be more than happy to help out with whatever I can. I am slow and working on many of my own projects, but I've never had a team before. I've taught myself art, basic Python coding (so I can work with Ren'Py) and am okay with writing. Feel free to message me if you want to talk. I'm not exactly the greatest at the stuff I do, but I love seeing others make awesome games. Some indie games (Cinderella Phenomenon, Cute Demon Crashers, Nusantara: Legend of the Winged Ones) are among my most favorite VNs. I would love to see even more get made.
