Argh facepalm !  I spotted spelling errors ! TSK !  Those will get corrected in Second Edition.

re: Romance Urban, First Edition

apologise for the technically inappropriate classification of my story. It should be called a Kinetic Novel. (Matters to other creators and the hardcore gamers of the genre.)

Thanks for your patience and understanding. This is my first release.

Please read "kinetic novel" wherever I have referred to "visual novel" in my notes.


Video Preview is here:

General Description

Romance Urban is a game produced by Juniper Chew, using the Ren'Py visual novel engine.

This is an original story written and presented in the canon style of visual novel otome games.  However, the creator has used 3D CG rendered still images instead of 2D anime / manga style artwork.

The main purpose of the story is entertainment for female readers in the mid- to late-teens.  While it does not contain explicit scenes or explicit content, it does have some mature situations of a mild nature, and includes some renders of shirtless male human figures.

Erica Lin is a young junior executive working in the media industry of a top-tier global city in the East.  She is 21-22 years old, and also studies part-time at the local city university.  She meets potential romantic partners in the young artistes at work, and fellow students at university.  The story tells of how her relationships with these potential partners evolve, as she copes with work and studies.

Added to the mix is the alternative culture of an elitist tribe of neo-ninjas, who work covertly on special missions in the city.

There are some sly references to archetypal anime / manga situations, and double entendre dialogue which only hard-core fans of otaku culture will pick up.

This is the First Edition of Romance Urban. Game play is simple for this version: a choice between two alternatives leads the player down different routes which eventually return to the main story.  

While targetted at a specific audience, older players will relate to some of the situations, and hopefully, also enjoy the graphics and music.

Extensions and spin-offs to the main story are planned, and these will be made available at a later time.

A Comment On Intellectual Property Rights and Copyright
Juniper Chew, November 2013

I spent 2 days reviewing some old territory for digital asset protection, and some new strategies as well, and there truly is no 100% proof method to protect digital assets posted for internet viewing, on any web server, at any time, in any way.  

Digital image and music assets, particularly original works created expressly for use with original digital games, can be ripped in some way, no matter the method of obfuscation used.

So, to the potential rippers and hackers of my game, I send my greetz to ya all and expect you to kowtow to my greatness as a creator of such wonderful art and music that you need so desperately to rip, hack and pass of as your own or to make money from it for yourselves.  I pwn you all when you do that.
