ONGOING: LIVE TALK SESSION WITH ITO MASUSHITA UPCOMING!

 

Ten random people from the pool of entrants will be selected. If you're interested, please comment on this thread saying so! :D

_______________________________________________________________________

 

 

Hello everyone. Façade here.

I am the lead scenario writer of Studio Quest, an upcoming Visual Novel / RPG production Studio. We are proud to announce that yesterday, we have successfuly contracted a professional Japanese Mangaka known as Ito Masushita to join our team! We are planning to create a visual novel with him as the art director, and release it on kickstarter within the next four months. You can check him out here.

 

A sample of his most recent sketch:

As you can clearly see, Japanese artists differentiate themselves from most artists within the EVN crowd by their professional approach to anatomy, combined with extensive experience in both lineart and intrinsic attention to small details. Hence, these elements combined make Japan a bastion of the animation industry and the producer of some of the best Visual Novels ever created. 

Did I tell you Ito has created many games within the professional Japanese development scene and also has a major degree in 2D animation? He will also be creating the OP for the said VN! Combined with our musician, Gian Marco La Serra, I believe we can potentially release a project that can truly redefine the standards of English Visual Novels and perhaps shatter many negative stereotypes surrounding it as well.

 

So, why am I writing all this? To just show off how awesome we are? Of course not! :D

 

To celebrate and commemorate this occasion, I'd like to let the users of fuwanovel decide the subject matter of the Visual Novel Ito Masushita will be drawing for. I feel this is a really great way to contribute back to the community and really show how a combination of intelligent opinions can form something beautiful. Your opinions and input will be factored into the story, influencing major decisions such as genre and characterization. 

 

If you'd like to participate, all you need to do is to comment on tis post answering this question:

If you could direct a visual novel of your choice with the best staff available, what would it be like and why?

 

Since there is much more flexibility in story compared to art, I'd be really grateful (and it'd definitely be most helpful!) if you could focus your suggestions to plot--and story--related elements.

What kind of While all opinions will be taken into account, I might have a reward for the most comprehensive / insightfull responses...... ;)

 

*insert evil laugh here*

 

LET THE SUGGESTIONS BEGIN!!!!!! :D:D

 

Have fun, everyone~ ^_^

i would make a vn about a otaku whose forced to leave his apartment and get a job . you'd have several areas of the town with different business  you can choose from, and each business can lead to unlocking a boss, customer,coworkers route. and include gameplay for the various jobs. you can add a system where you can quit a job and abandon the route if you decide to and get a different job. the initial protag's goal would be to make a specific amount of money to be able to afford rent and saving himself from having to sell his collections of figures,games,anime,manga and other merch. the mini games at the jobs will help you raise your funding and be used to pay for the dates on the routes. so far thats all i have except if you quite a job to far in to a heroines route there's a chance of her going yandere and following you to your next job.

Why am I not surprised?

 

frankly if i didn't have the possibility of a yandere in there im sure some of you would have died from shock. at least this way its optional and can happen to any of the heroines so possibly multiple yandere ends!

 

#YandereFTW

 

Thanks for the opinions everyone! Keep 'em coming :D

@Rose I knew a Yandere would come up sooner or later

 

yandere for the win all day!

 

and glad im the first to bring them up.

@Kendjin

I'm afraid that's confidential information under NDA, haha :)

But we are planning a live interview session connecting Fuwa members to Ito--a great opportunity for anyone interested in the inner workings of the Pinoy and Japanese animanga scene! If you are lucky enough to be selected as one of the winners (through random draw) then you'll get to talk to him yourself :D

@Joris914 That's up to you guys as well :)

 

Our upcoming website will have a store embedded with paypal integration, so we can still give out H-rewards to KS backers / let anyone interested purchase them through our own infrastructure. (This is more or less a strategy to bypass Steam's 18+ censoring policy / general onslaught on 18+ content brought about by major distributors.)

Having a lawyer is almost always helpful when running a business. Our finance manager does have a very close lawyer that he personally knows, so we do periodically ask him for advice. But please keep in mind that a lawyer is not required to create and agree to a NDA. The presence of one is indeed helpful to ensure that all the proper terms are included for both parties; however, it is by no means a requirement.

 

I'd appreciate it if you could kindly keep all legalistic discussions and comments not directly related to the subject of the proposed VN project to either my PM inbox or my email at contact@studio-quest.com. :) Thank you!

I have like a hundred of scenarios for a visual novel.

 

But i have a specific visual novel in mind : the story of an american from Japanese Origins, that will participate in an exchange students and go to a great Japanese Academy, from there, expect a high school VN with the chars and all.

 

But, at the middle of the story, something happens, the main char is knocked unconcious, and when he awakes, the academy is in ruins, everyone "disappeared", and when he escapes the collapsed academy, he discover a war torn world, from there, the story will dramatically change, less to no comedy, and hail for drama, lots, LOTS of drama and Life and death choices.

 

More precisely, one of the heroines have french origins.

 

This is the sumary of one of my ideas, a "genre shift" Visual Novel with lots of emotions and all shit.

Eventually we'll narrow them down but these are all great ideas ^_^

Alright. Here goes my idea.

 

Once upon a time, there lived in the land of Visnovella, a knight by the name of Omni. Now Omni was one of those old fashioned knights. He still followed the old religion of Visnovella, and resented those who realized the old religion was quite silly and oftentimes wrong in the face of fact. Still, nobody in Visnovella could question his drive. Omni, however, began to become upset by the new Visnovella. He hated the way the land was being ruled, and despised its new religion. So Omni picked the only option left to him... rebellion.

Now, if you have ever read the account of Don Quixote, you might know where this is heading. Omni had grand dreams of remaking Visnovella in his own way. He dreamed of pure freedom. Everyone was entitled to anything, and he felt he had the masses behind him. 

Sadly, in reality, he merely had himself and a small handful of like minded people. Without acknowledging this fact upfront, Omni unknowingly began sneaking around, trying not to draw attention to his greater plans. He sought after powerful allies who might lend him their strength in his crusade. 

Meanwhile, a new enemy to Omni had appeared. The great dragon, Sepoj had entered the stage. Alongside Gangamamer, and Asuja, Sepoj began entering the lands of Visnovella. However, Visnovella and the dragons had long since set aside their differences and reached a peace agreement. Omni hated this and wanted the three dragons destroyed. Only then could Visnovella truly be free he felt. So Omni began making his moves. Grand moves, that in his mind, would crumble away the foundations of Visnovella and allow him to take charge. These grand moves, however, more resembled a child kicking and screaming that he didn't get what he wanted. 

In the end, Omni continues his childish adventures, never realizing what a giant waste of time he is undertaking. Meanwhile, the observant citizens and leaders of Visnovella sliently hold in their laughter at this poor, misguided man.


There is my idea. It's a tad depressing, but not all stories are meant to be happy I suppose. Thoughts? If this gets done, I'd like a nice commission please.

While batman's idea is pure genius, I find myself unable to resist sharing my own vision:

 

Our main character Bardley Dolt (much fun is made of his unfortunately chosen surname) is a man living in the US, juggling his job at a restaurant with college studies. While going about his daily activities, he starts noticing a strange girl who looks just like a 3D embodiment of a character he once saw in an eroge conspicuously popping up, then vanishing without a trace every so often.

 

She starts appearing more and more often, closer and closer, and eventually he starts feeling a strange dread. Something inside him knows... that she is out to kill him. Will he survive? Is she really trying to kill him, or is there a greater threat behind it all? Meanwhile, he takes his frustrations out on the internet community Wafuunobel by expertly trolling other members.

What about an slice of life? Main character is an american called Run that is currently teaching english in Japan, he's frequently trolled on the internet, but nothing serious, just an extra comic relief. The game goes around him teaching and knowing the girls, flag system and all that. Not sure about the girls, maybe another teacher, a student, neighbor or even a girl he previously met. Is my suggestion good?  :Kappa:

 

Alright. Here goes my idea.

 

Interesting. Aside from the depressive part with him fighting for a seemingly lost cause, it would be fun to read how the rebellion would happen and all that.

A game about a guy named Run who fell in love with his pupil Sakura 5 years ago.

However he was forced to move back home because the Pulltop yakuza chased him out of the country.

But now, 5 years later, the Pulltop yakuza has been disbanded, and Run is once again able to return to his beloved Sakura.

But danger is still lurking as a new enemy has appeard. They call themselves Moenovel and they will stop at nothing to destroy Run's love.

Will Run and Sakura survive?

An amazing life or death drama.

Title: Sakura-chan to Run no copyright infrigement monogatari
