Graphic User Interface for a work in progress visual novel...by uh...me.^^ It's my secret little project that I've been neglecting for a little while. I can do the visual part of a VN but the novel part is especially hard because I'm not much of a writer. Plus unlike my Lunar Lotus Festival game it's made using Ren'Py which is a program I'm totally unfamiliar with. So right now I spend more time reading tutorials and writing the script than working on art assets. I'll probably have to end up looking for some help with fleshing out some of the written parts so the story isn't...you know, horrible. So if anyone is interested in writing or wants to know more about the game let me know.

SYNOPSIS:
Welcome to Clearwater Crossing, a small seaside town full of rustic charm and southern hospitality. Abigail Bartlett and her family have called this town home for the last 100 years. It’s where she grew up and plans to settle down one day. Now that she’s finished with college Abby begins making plans to start her own graphic design company near the boardwalk. Clearwater Crossing has always been considered a historic area but over the years it has begun to lose money as well as residents. Where once the shops were vintage and charming, now they’ve begun to fall in a state of disrepair; many of the once bustling shops have been boarded up and left abandoned. Fearing that things will only get worse the towns people struggle with trying to hold on to the peaceful life they once knew.

A big urban development company, The Monolith Property Group, moves in with an offer that seems too good to be true. They want to buy out the remaining business owners then tear down the shops to build a mall in hopes to boost the economy and bring in a younger generation of buyers. With no money coming in, the town is on the cusp of accepting their offer. Outraged over their disregard for small business owners Abby wants to petitions the city to recognize the area as a historical landmark. Calling her bluff the Mayor offers her a challenge: She has one year to fix the buildings and find tenants who’ll be willing to open up businesses. Faced with such a huge responsibility Abby isn’t sure if she has what it takes and begins questioning if it was wise to get involved at all.

The goal of the game is to find tenants, make upgrades to the property and earn income before time runs out…or not. Whether Abby chooses to help the town improve or focus on her own career influences her role in the story and how others interact with her. You're free to play the story however you like.

Thanks! So far I have the general story idea and some coding done but there's a lot more left to do. I thin the GUI is the only thing that's even close to being done.

It is a dating game where you can choose between five guys to have either a romantic or friendship relationship with. I've updated the first post with a synopsis of the game as well as what features I'm aiming for it to have.You pretty much got it right.
