So I'm working with someone from tumblr on a Teen Titans dating sim VN thing

What kinds of things do you think I should avoid?
>>
it's in your best interest to avoid protracted planning and have a basic playable version as soon as possible. It'll be your best help in figuring out what to kep and what to axe.
>>
>>382004
That sounds awesome, just make sure we're able to date Jinx.


Inspiration from humble's CYOA game would be wise, at least when it comes to Jinx.
>>
>>382173
Don't know who that is or what you mean and I'd rather not copy someone's ideas.

Although I do like Jinx.
>>
>>382004
avoid tumblr for one.

But in general, like >>382088 said, just focus on having a build. Actually make a demo or a skeleton you can add to so things don't become a huge pile of notes with zero actual substance.
>>
>>382180
by making a VN you're copying ideas.
just taking cues or small inspirations from other works is in no way a bad thing- it's how we make shit up in the first place.
>>
>>382190
But we're in a VERY SIMILAR niche audience type of thing (I think?) Sure I could get some good ideas from them, but they wouldn't feel like my ideas and I don't like that.
>>
>>382180
I'm not saying to copy his ideas, I'm just saying he took the relatively under developed character of Jinx, and took her along her natural progression.

Basically I'm saying, get Jinx right.
>>
>>382004
if this is your first time doing this i would avoid trying to go all out. Do it short small and sweet. something you can finish and show off to prove your skill
>>
>>382194
making a vn and using teen titans is using someone else's ideas. Seriously, get over it. Nothing you're doing is original™ and that's okay.

If you like what they did, then put your own twist on it and make it yours. Don't get so caught up in who did what first that you forget that you're making a dating sim where you fuck superheroes. Do what you want.

>>382205
Also, why not build something simple first, then expand on it? Something like roguelike, which only has the one girl right now, but has a system set up for many more down the line.
>>
>>382004
Vaginal intercourse
>>
>>382004
Too many VN's I have seen that try to make nearly every character into sex-crazed fiends that only want to fuck 24-7. While, yes, it's porn and whatnot, can we not have them be in character to a certain degree while they're getting a fuck on?

I'm uncertain who the main character is, I assume you're going to have one of the mains for that. Have you considered though having the player make their own hero? The "dating" aspect could also include missions for the character to interact with the gals which in turn can have unique scenarios. Battling a goopy being? A tentacle monstrosity? A mind controlling robot? It almost feels limitless what is possible here.

Possibly think about getting a few people to help with this. You clearly have someone for the drawing of the characters (unless that is you) and someone directing it all and putting it together for your work, but having artists for backgrounds will help with the speed on when you can get this out. Same for getting someone to properly design a simple UI for what is needed or anything else.

As Tommy Wisaeu would say "That's the idea."

I'm handling the writing/scripting stuff while I have a good friend and buddy of mine doing the art as you can see here. He's quick and hammered out these two (this and the one in the OP) in the single day I asked him to. I'm also having him watch the show so he gets a feel for the way they move.
>>
>>382214
>>382004
The Roguelike element mentioned by another poster is a good idea, but as the tasks you do between "dates" or as interaction that build your relationship. Since they are teen titans, it can be beating the super villian of the week.
>>

Dude, fucking this. I know the objective is porn, but at least keep the character intact. Nothing turns me off more than seeing a character I like going full retard with exaggerated body proportions like huge ass balloon tits or giant lips.
>>
Will you incorporate any elements from Teen Titans Go into this dating sim?
>>
>>382950
MAYBE a costume or two from the show as an easter egg (and if I can afford the art), but just upfront, no.

Interesting to hear of there actually being a "create-a-hero" thing going on. Do hope it doesn't bog things down and make it more difficult in the long run. The background does look nice as well, simple yet suitable for what you have.

A few other things that quickly came to me.

First, while it's not my thing, have you considered switching roles and making the protagonist a female, going after the other males of the place instead?

Have you also thought about doing different art styles? The television show is definitely a favorite of mine, but I know a ton of people would be interested in seeing a GO! version or the multiple comic versions of the series. I understand it is likely too much work for the artist, but something to think about. Maybe even as costume ideas would be interesting.

>>382949
God I hate that kind of shit so much. I get that some people may have their own little things added in for style or their own way to draw things, but so many fuck with characters so much it's a massive turnoff. It's hard looking around for some quality imagery that isn't fucked up with weird ballooning of things or having the characters acting in ways that make it appear it's actually someone dressed up as them acting it all out. No thanks.
>>
>>382960
>First, while it's not my thing, have you considered switching roles and making the protagonist a female, going after the other males of the place instead?

Too expensive and I'm really not interested in that angle. Besides, the only reason any guy plays a woman in a porn game is for them to get raped and I'm already letting the male PC engage in enough of that anyway.

>Have you also thought about doing different art styles? The television show is definitely a favorite of mine, but I know a ton of people would be interested in seeing a GO! version or the multiple comic versions of the series.

I love the original comics from the 80's, but that doesn't mean I'm going to add that style, let alone GO!'s. Especially when I loathe that shows flash art style.

>people actually falling for this bait

Yeah, keep reposting those images OP, you got everyone hooked.

Do you have a problem, friend?
>>
Like I said last time, hype is death. Don't go beyond your means. Better to have a less flashy but well made game than overly ambitious failure.
>>
This looks pretty neat, OP.

When's expected release? a month? Six? 12?
>>
>>383558
Seeing as it only looks like it's getting off the ground at the moment, I'd have to imagine OP'll have a proper working build within three months if there isn't anything in the way, such as irl crap or slacking off.
>>
>>383558
>>383601
Right now I'm not paying for any art I don't need, so I'm trying to make sure all of the story and writing is concrete. Measure twice, cut once.

Besides, I'm having him watch the show right now and learning the way they move.

I tried to tell you this in the thread that was posted on /v/, but the thread 404'd before I could post it.

A great, great way to draw people into this and make people like it more would be an inclusion of different outfits. There's a multitude of different outfits both Raven & Starfire have wore, across the comics and different shows they've been featured in. Even more if you plan to add Terra, Jinx, etc. in.

Off the top of my head, Starfire has these:
http://images.lmgtfy.com/?q=Starfire
Her most noticable being her midriff, boob patches, sling bikini, and her 80's outfits.

And Raven has these:
http://images.lmgtfy.com/?q=raven+superhero
Her most noticeable being her original comic, Injustice Video Game, Different Emotions, and Birthmark outfits.

Not to mention the upcoming JL v Teen Titans movie that'll have new designs to work with for Raven/Starfire.

And here >>382973
>I love the original comics from the 80's, but that doesn't mean I'm going to add that style, let alone GO!'s. Especially when I loathe that shows flash art style.
You don't have to limit yourself man, especially when you already said it was a good idea >>382955 as well as >>382960 said with
>Maybe even as costume ideas would be interesting

Recreating some of the outfits paraded around in TTG in it's original artstyle would be a nice touch. For example, pic related with Raven as Wonder Woman and Starfire as Flash. Starfire with either a Batgirl/Star the Terrible/Lady Legasus or even a Blackfire outfit would be cool, as would Raven with either a Lady Legasus or Robin outfit (the Robin outfit doesn't even have to be TTG related, since Star and Rave wore it in the main show).

I know you don't like the show, neither do I, but you can't deny some of the outfits shown in that show aren't just pure fetish fuel.

It'll be a lot of work, but it'll make it a lot better in the long run, in terms of looks. I'll certainly appreciate it more. Hope you consider adding some of these.
>>
>>384601
>For example, pic related with Raven as Wonder Woman

TTGO manages to fuck up Raven being dressed as Wonder Woman being sexy. That show is so bad.

In the regular show, if Raven dressed like Wonder Woman, it would be damn attractive.
>>
>>384601
I agree that alternate outfits could be a pretty fun element.

Not just alternate superhero costumes, though. It could also be interesting to see the Titans in something entirely casual and "I'm not going to go chase down any villains anytime soon"-ish.
>>
>>386589
That's true. I originally imagined them in their costumes from back in the day in the comics, or the one that would show up in the next movie, but having them in casual clothing would be pretty neat to see. Maybe even take them clothing shopping where you can watch them try out new clothing or something?
>>
>>382949
My niggas.

Characterization matters, and if you're gonna fuck with a character somehow, add something of a plot element of explanation beyond "REASONS!"

Otherwise, take unspoken assumptions and logical leaps that aren't TOO far off the beaten path for a character and apply them to sexy times. For example, Tamaraneans evolved from cats and we all know that Starfire is a hugger, so it's not a stretch to say she's also big on cuddling.

Stretch it a bit, and say that Starfire is the norm regarding Tamaranean physical intimacy, and everybody loves to have a bed buddy.

Being much less concerned with snuggling and how that would obviously lead to sexy times, make it so Tamaraneans/Starfire view sex as something friends will do together for fun, the same as going to see a movie or playing videogames.

And just cause I'm a dirty freak looking to justify my kink, make Starfire such an unapologetic sweetheart that she gets off on making her friends/lovers get off. I.E.; she squeals like a banshee when getting creampied.

Just some random stuff and how the thought processes can go lol. What scenes are you going to have in this game l anyway?
>>
>>386713
>Maybe even take them clothing shopping
That would be fitting.

In the TV series, we already saw them go to clubs and eat at restaurants, so shopping wouldn't be all that out of place.
>>
>>385308
Well, if you checked my statement, I said
>Recreating some of the outfits paraded around in TTG in it's original artstyle would be a nice touch.
So it wouldn't be in Go's style. It would be in the original show's artstyle, which is what they seem to be going for.
>>
Would you happen to have any more info to share with us about the game, or nothing at the moment?
>>
>>390487
Not much, cause I don't want to make any promises.

I will say I've streamlined it as much as I could in what I've planned. (Like I had considered letting the player play a girl, but that would require too many unique art assets and potential rewrites that I can't really afford.)
>>
>>383055

Whether or not this is a porn-game is irrelevant, but Ravens chest needs to be bigger. She was at least bigger than stars

Good. Female main characters are shit anyways.

I would love to help or contribute in some way if this is a serious project. I've done more than my fair share of Teen Titans artwork in the past.

Include Pantha at some point. Canoncally, she's got the biggest tits, and you'd have some leeway with her characterisation.

Not sure what to avoid but make sure to include cute romance, read:

for inspiration.

Oh and I would love it if at some point we got to take a hammer to terra's face. There is criminally few games that allow you to abuse your loved ones.

Congrats on getting an artist, thought you had abandoned this desu. Made any progress since then?
