Hello. So I'm working on an another project which is a visual novel, like I said in the previous note. The title is Jade Mallard's Big Scoop. I guess you can say it's a game... But this is actually has no interactivity at all, you're just reading a story with pictures. Yes, unlike visual novels like Fate/Stay Night or CLANNAD, this will have no choices, so you can say kinetic novel is a better way to describe this game.

The game will be pretty short, as the story is kind of a beginning, I guess? Later if I feel I can continue it, I will work on the continuation, but that's another story.

I'm using Ren'py for making this game. It is still in development, so I want to give a preview for it. When it's done, you can just download it, no need to pay anything.

JADE MALLARD'S BIG SCOOP


Story

The journalism world is though! Jade Mallard, a young journalist, had been longing for a big scoop so she could rise to fame. But of course, it's not easy. Mallard was dead set on getting her dream, whatever happens. So when a chance came from her mysterious boss, she immediately accepted it. But is Mallard ready for all the risk she will face in order to chase a big scoop? Hold your breath, Mallard! Anything might happen!

It looks really cool. After I finish the game; I want to make a review of it on my personal AnimeUnderwater blog. Also; our channel TheAnimeUW will definitely promote it as Arch stated.

I like how our UW community is thriving with this kind of projects!

Thank you very much! Wow, that would be great \^_^/

Yeah! I myself personally prefer something that has story and context, not just a simple picture. Don't get me wrong, I still love UW pics a lot but when it has more background to it, like comics or games, it just makes everything more exciting. That's why I always try to make not just simple pictures, but also with some kind of plot and characters so the readers can feel more involved in the situation ^_^

Nice!

While on the subject and im not trying to put pressure on ya, this is probably the very, very first Ren'py or amateur visual novel with aquaphilia and water for themes.

Really? I wonder why no one tried before...

Savaster made that picture series that looks like a VN, of a human mermaid I think the title is 3 1/2? The girl's name was Michiru I think... I'm not sure. It would be freaking great if they actually turn it into a VN.

Actually, they could turn a lot, lot lot of stories into visual novels. That's a pretty neat idea you got there!
