In the recent year me and
have been working on a visual novel together. With me being the writer and the creative mind behind the plot and setting and him doing the art and visual design. This visual novel is an alternate history/sci-fi work that is more story-driven than character driven.
The main divergence point of the novel is the replacement of the Russian government with a benevolent dictatorship called the Unity,headed by Kaede-an enigmatic woman of crimson hair and eyes that advocates for the creation of a world state and the furthering of the posthuman species she belongs to. This of course leads to an increasing tension between the Unity and the rest of the world powers.
Which leads us into the actual plot of the VN. In it a clandestine operation by the Unity to extract a batch of experimental piloted mecha known as Sub-Orbital Humanoid Assault Crafts from a storage cache in the American city of Providence goes wrong,thus involving 15-year old homeschooled shut-in Jacob-Howard Naish,who is forced to pilot one of the SOHACs back to the Unity airship "Kyuon" where they were meant to be transported. There he is forced to work together with the motley crew of the vehicle,as they try and make it back to the Unity capital of Ulthar (formerly Irkutsk),while a world war between the Unity and the rest of the world breaks out,America using the so called "Providence Incident" as a casus belli. Jacob and the "Kyuon" 's crew must utilize their unique military advantage in the face of their three SOHACs to make it to Ulthar.
This is of course as short and concise a summary as I could manage. Soon enough we'll have a demo publicly available as well as maybe a dedicated site as well as a Patreon and Kickstarter pages for it. A lot of character art for the project has been done already and you can see it on mine and
's respective galleries.
