I've gotten quite a lot of mixed responses on this idea and concept. For the people who are against it, I understand that the characters of School Days might have trouble fitting into the concept of an RPG, especially when it gets to the yiffy parts. I do want to continue the idea of a point and click adventure game but I've been building up my skills to make an RPG. And now that I have the ability to make a full fledged RPG, I really want to expand my knowledge and skills of it while I have the ability.
I have an original story and concept penned out already but I still have a lot to learn to perfect this craft. It would probably be wise to make a game based on an established franchise first before doing something original and in depth. It's no secret that I absolutely LOVE the School Days comic. It really isn't the comic itself I like, but whole concept, characters, and the fact that it really can fit in almost any situation. With the way it's grown I could almost compare it to the pokemon franchise in sheer size and popularity. And for the past couple years I've been trying to make either an animation or game dedicated to it.
In all honestly I believe School Days can fit in either a point and click adventure, RPG, Mario like Platformer, Party Game, and dating sim. Right now though I'm in the mood to make an RPG, especially something based on School Days. The thing is though, I'm kind of out of ideas at the moment. Plus I don't have the artistic resources for this game as well to cover the things that would need to be covers.
Here is a short list of everything that I would need to make this an awesome game.
Sprites of all the characters that would be involved - For example, something at this level of detail: http://www.spriters-resource.com/psx_ps2/lom/sheet/6303 but it wouldn't have to have that wide range of animated movements, just the basics to cover walking and showing emotions. I was thinking of tracing the sprite in photoshop so they wouldn't look too pixelated but that has been a bit of a bust.
A story line to tie everything together - To me a story is always important to an RPG. I had some interesting plot ideas in the past but I'm at a total loss for what the story would be about. I'm also at a loss to wither the game should involve sex or not. I totally okay with naughtiness in the game, especially when it could come to the attacks, but lately I've been wanting to do something more where people actually play it for the interesting story rather then the kinky sex.
I can imagine the game itself taking place within the confines of Pouncefield. I remember seeing several maps people drew of the city and thought it would be an interesting place to explore and set up an adventure. At least that's what I have in mind so far.
Music to motivate the battles and exploration - I have a huge list of videogame music but it would just suit the game better if it had it's own original score rather then using generic tunes everyone has herd before. I have received a couple offers from artists to make music but I need to find the tone to the game first before persuing a soundtrack.
Those are honestly the three main things I would require to make an RPG based on School Days. Art, Story, and Music is also kind of the reason I have so much trouble finishing any other project I've started. The only reason why the "Babysitting Cream" game has been so successful is because of the support of not only a wonderfully talented artist, but extensive fan support as well. Chances are though that this concept or idea isn't going to get anywhere near the support Babysitting Cream gets so chances are this concept probably wont get past the conceptual stage.
However if you are still reading this, and are interesting in providing support to see the game be made please drop me a line. If you're a good writer, can make character game sprites, or compose music and are interested in making a game please give me a heads up. I really think we can make this work, it just needs the right amount of TLC from the fans.
Thanks for listening and I hope to hear from you all soon. ^v^
