That’s why I wrote slightly Q&A going over the primary questions one may have in regards to the game, to provide you a greater thought of whether or not it’s value attempting out or not. And extra.
1. Do I actually have to play the video games so as?
Each and each game might be loved as a standalone, a narrative inside a narrative. The solely issues you would possibly miss are a number of lore components to attach the dots with among the NPCs’ dialogues, or a number of cameos with characters from earlier video games that could have you scratch you head for a number of seconds over their cryptic dialogue, referring to a narrative you would possibly not have performed. But aside from that, 99% of the game might be totally loved with none prior data of different Henteria video games.
2. What’s the gameplay like?
Basically, you stroll across the map, discuss with individuals, do completely different simple actions, and progress the story that approach. The development may be very linear, with decisions that affect your ending however don’t result in branching paths. The primary storyline will take care of the 2 primary characters (Rose and Cyanna), and there are two non-compulsory aspect storylines with Lily and Haylen as their focus.
There can also be an solely non-compulsory card game much like FF8’s Triple Triad that, at the top of the game, must have over 100+ unique playing cards added to the game. The card game might be ignored, however you’ll miss a minor storyline with a minor character.
There are additionally two completely different POV’s the gamers can select from.
3. Different POV’s?
Omniscient POV: For those that have performed HC1, HC2 or Merry H-Mas, this gained’t change a lot. The participant is perceived as an omniscient being that may see all scenes and listen to most ideas, with out the MC even being there.
Partial MC POV: This one is restricted to HC3. It is principally aimed toward those that would slightly the NTR occur largely “behind closed doors”, and depend on their creativeness. It will focus primarily on the MC and what he sees. If he doesn’t see a sex scene, it can be left out, with simply a number of hints to let gamers realize it is going on even in the event that they’re not seeing it.
However, it is known as “partial” for a motive. Players will nonetheless give you the option to see all free roam occasions taking place everywhere in the map, will hear sounds and see shadows that the MC can not. They may even see all story-related occasions, in order that they can nonetheless make sense of it and aren’t fully misplaced.
As mentioned above, the POV might be modified in any respect instances throughout the game.
4. If the game performs “like a Visual Novel”, why RPGMaker?
What I goal for when creating my video games is what I name “ambience NTR” or “immersion NTR”, which means that it isn’t merely an easy story and visuals slapped over it, but additionally free roam scenes and sex occasions you would possibly encounter whereas strolling all over the world. Shadows behind a curtain, sex in an obstructed darkish alley, condoms on the bottom or discarded gadgets of clothes, faint panting sounds behind a door, mattress creaking and moans on the opposite aspect of the wall, these are among the many delicate sex components you’ll be able to uncover as you discover the map on completely different timeframes, throughout the day or at night time.
There are additionally a number of “NTR mini-stories” involving random NPCs happening everywhere in the map, that may progress with out participant interactions. If you’re cautious and take pleasure in exploring, you would possibly witness completely different phases of these tales, or solely a number of of them, or miss them solely. This will assist reinforce the sensation that the world is alive within the background, with out the MC.
5. How does the cardboard game play?
The plugin I’m utilizing for the cardboard game was made by somebody not engaged on it, and it accommodates a number of points I needed to work round. The primary one being that there are not any limitations on the power of the playing cards you need to use throughout a duel, which suggests gamers may simply go round and beat a number of stronger gamers, obtain sturdy playing cards, and easily use all of them in the identical duel to steamroll all their opponents.
As a counter-measure in opposition to this, I needed to streamline the duels, which means that gamers could have to defeat a predetermined opponent earlier than shifting on to a different stronger predetermined one, and this for the entire game. With each win, they’ll obtain a predetermined card. This permits me to preserve observe of the general deck power of gamers, and be sure that their subsequent opponent has an identical deck that may present at the very least slightly little bit of a problem.
6. What function do the alternatives fulfill on this game?
The game will preserve observe of what decisions the participant has made every time, and can set off the acceptable ending at the top of the game. For instance, if a participant went for a majority of “Revenge” decisions throughout the game, then they’ll get the Revenge Ending. Same for NTR and Happy Endings.
Lastly, gamers could have the choice to have the alternatives both stay solely white, or be coloured, blue for NTR, crimson for Revenge and inexperienced for Happy. That approach, they will all the time go for the alternatives associated to the ending they need to see.
(A save can be offered firstly of every ending, in order that gamers gained’t need to replay your complete game to see all of them).
7. What if I don’t like NTR?
HC3 (as nicely as HC1 and HC2) are designed in such a approach that it permits gamers to distance themselves from the NTR in the event that they want to, primarily by not figuring out with the MC being NTR’d. How?
Well, there are numerous small tips, similar to not giving the MC a voice, however make him converse by way of speech bubbles, which dehumanizes him and makes it simpler for individuals to not affiliate with him. Other tips embrace not with the ability to identify the MC, so gamers see him much less as somebody they impersonate however extra of a narrative character they control. The NTR being unavoidable is an element of mentioned tips too, so nobody seems like they selected it out of their very own volition, it simply occurred as an alternative.
“Yes, but what if I really don’t like NTR?”
Well, in that case, the NTR might be made solely avoidable by not taking part in the game.
8. What’s the writing/English like?
As for the English, I’m not a local speaker, however I can deal with myself nicely sufficient that it isn’t bothersome for the readers (gamers). I used to be fairly glad once I heard individuals with English as their mom tongue had performed by way of ~20 hours of HC2 with out realizing English wasn’t my first language.
Now, count on a number of typos right here and there and a few grammatical oddities too (let me know should you discover them). Also, some characters would possibly use English phrases or kinds of speech that aren’t according to their obvious socio-economical background. Sorry about that.
9. What’s your definition of the NTR utilized in the game?
At this point, there are virtually as many definitions for NTR that there are stars within the sky, and even Japanese gamers argue about what it actually means, so I’ll write down what I think about to be NTR to keep away from any additional confusion (and probably low critiques as a result of “iT’s NoT NTR”, however they’ll nonetheless occur both approach).
For me, NTR can occur with anybody the MC shares a robust bond with, not solely lovers, companions, wives, and so forth… It could possibly be a extremely good pal, an in depth member of the family, or something that matches the outline. When this bond is severed, or changed by an excellent stronger bond brought on primarily by manipulation and sexual Corruption of the lady by the antagonist, that’s NTR. Here, that’s the overall definition I take advantage of for the NTR in my video games.
10. What are your general targets with this game?
My primary goal is to create a game that will stick to individuals after they’ve completed it, if just for a number of minutes. One that wouldn’t be forgotten proper after they’ve closed the game. For that, I attempt my finest to craft a fascinating story, attaching characters with distinctive personalities, a wealthy world, but additionally satisfying sex content.
11. Update schedule?
12. What are this game’s shortcomings?
1) The game depends solely on small pixel sprites for the sex scenes’ visuals (test screenshots for an instance). This permits for extra range and a larger variety of scenes, but it surely actually isn’t as interesting visually as larger pixel artwork or full-blown illustrations. However, for the reason that game depends largely on immersion and atmosphere, visuals aren’t as necessary as the mix of artwork + sound impact + scenario.
2) It takes time to get going. I put emphasis on sluggish and partially life like Corruption (it’s a porn game, it’s by no means going to be 100% life like). As a outcome, it takes plenty of time to set all the things up good with the LI’s to ensure that the Corruption/NTR to occur. Not solely that, however I put nice significance with feeling related to the characters, which is why the game begins with the MC’s childhood, assembly the characters, seeing them evolve and develop up, their relationships change, and so forth…
This doesn’t imply there is no such thing as a sex content. There can be lots of it from the beginning, with a number of scenes and much more freeroam occasions all through the map, solely not with the two primary and a pair of aspect characters. But don’t fear, as soon as it will get going, it goes onerous. HC2 had over 100+ scenes by the point I completed it.
13. Why ought to I help you?
However, I nonetheless wish to go additional with this game and any future video games. More funds imply extra customized pixel artwork property, animations, extra illustrations (extra lewd outfit variations for the character menu, which has full physique illustrations), extra portraits, and so forth…
For video games after HC3, the primary (dream) goal could be to improve the visuals from 50 pixels tall sprites to 70- 80 pixels tall sprites, which suggests lots extra particulars, however lots extra prices to (setting property would should be redone solely to match the change).
Also, with greater than 3 accomplished video games below my belt, I’m greater than doubtless to complete any game I begin.
