OmOneko update: Playtesters have the beta Act 1


Recommended Posts

OmOneko - Project Introduction

The making of OmOneko started shortly after I discovered my first ever Visual Novel: I lost a bet and had to play \"Doki Doki Literature Club\". That game broke me.

Something about the immersive atmosphere and storytelling style sucked me right in. I immediately plunged into the medium, started playing and making review videos of VNs, and also helped make DDLC mods, and small VNs. Not having read for pleasure in ages and then consuming games like "Katawa Shoujo", "Lucy, The Eternity She Wished For", "Historia", and many others, had me ravenous for more!

But when I decided to see what the fuss was about with nekos, none of the games I came across sparked enough interest to download them. I just didn't like how they were portrayed; not \'alien or mysterious\' enough for me. I was left with a question: {i}if nekos existed and had evolved paralel to humans (and had not become simply \'people with cat-ears and a tail\' or \'. . . so gwateful to master!\' tropes), what would that world be like?{/i}

Before I knew it Clawdia, Pepper, and Shimi were living rent free in my head. And every time I put them into a situation - a scene just seemed to create itself.

A year later, the full story summary was outlined, Act One and a couple dozen other scenes were scripted, and half of the character sprites were created or roughed. One year after that, this awesome team of talented devs were deep into turning the story into a playable game.
