Currently, we have 6 people who have signed up through this thread, plus potentially Holy, who I still need to get back to. Listed by field of expertise, those peeps are:
Deniya (Character Design?)
None (Potentially periodically Bwarch)
At this point, I'd like to say that I'm really happy to see that there's a lot of interest in the VN and I'm thankful for everyone who's willing to contribute! Now that we have the first few signups (we still need more peeps though, especially BG Artists and Musicians), I figured we should actually give them something to do!
I think the first big thing we need to tackle right now is character design and identity. As the poll on the dateable guys is still going, we pretty much have only 5 characters confirmed so far, 4 of which are girls, so we'll focus on those for the time being.
Basically, what I'd like to see from both the character artists and the writers are short impressions of the characters listed below. I've written up a short "bio" on 4 of them, and from the artists, I'd like to see a character sketch or two for at least one of them. That doesn't necessarily mean that this will be the person whose route you'll be drawing, as this is just a proof-of-concept thing and a first try at getting some character design going (for that reason, please don't spend a million of hours on your sketch, either – a design impression is enough).
As for the writers, I'd like to see a short standard VN-type situation written between the character you choose and the player. That could be going on a date, a humorous situation, an introduction – anything, really! Word count should be around 1000, maybe a few hundred less, maybe a few hundred more.
Now, for the character bios!
Other than that, I'd appreciate it if everyone who signed up could send me either their contact data on Skype or outline another way they'd prefer to communicate. If multiple people don't want to use Skype, we'll have to make an IRC channel or something.
That's all for now, I think! The deadline for the character design submissions will be Saturday, the 1st of February. If you have any further questions, feel free to contact me or Grim through PM or Skype!
