So I'd been toying around with this for a short while in my mind and I figured I'd share it with you all now.TITLE:HYPERDETECTIVE NOTUNIA (work in progress)GENRE:ADVENTURE/VISUAL NOVELPLATFORM: PC, MAC, LINUX, PS4, iOS, ANDROID, WINDOWS PHONE, MICROWAVE, TOOTHBRUSH, TABLE CLOCKPLAYER(S)
Gamindustri has once against regained peace. Although the dreaded meteor, called by Stux Game, was headed to the land and nearly brought about the Second Great Crash, our valorous CPUs destroyed it as well as Stux Game, allowing their prosperous lands to remain prosperous and peaceful.
But, as always, eternal peace is as likely to happen as Neptune growing up.
One day, Nepgear is holding a presentation in the Virtua Forest with the intent to present a new piece of revolutionary technology that will be used for an incredibly petty purpose but, really, our citizens couldn't care less about that when Nepgear herself has come out to a stage. Nevertheless, the presentation continues without a hitch until it inevitably does. A very very
crucial part to the invention has been stolen! Planeptune security wastes no time locking the site down and are doing everything in their power to find the culprit.
Meanwhile, a friendly face sports a grin. It looks like the fun has begun, so he's gonna join in.OUR PROTAGONIST:
Meet the Detective. Like the Producer and the Secretary, he has no name. However, he does have a portrait. His most identifying features are:
1) His sunglasses. He wears them pretty much all the time. He tends to push them up when he's feeling confident or annoyed. When he's really pushed into a corner, he whips them off and puts them in his jacket's breast pocket.
2) A slightly large red die that he fiddles with often. Calls it his good luck charm. It's also hollow.
3) His black cotton gloves.
The Detective is a rather carefree and cocky sort; he's always itching for a fight. However, as a detective, his idea of a 'fight' is more intellectual in nature. Really, he just enjoys a good argument or puzzle he can deconstruct. He considers insults aimed at him to be challenges and he takes a lot of things in stride. However, he won't sit idly by if someone else is insulted. As for his love life, he laughs off such notions, saying that it'd be a conflict of interest in his line of work. Finally... he really wants the truth. Unsolved mysteries really get to him and he'll ask anything to get to what really happened.GAMEPLAY:
Gameplay follows the model of the Ace Attorney Investigations
series. In a crime scene, you must walk around and gather evidence as well as witness testimonies in order to advance. Our dear Detective can also take two pieces of evidence and compare them with each other to see if they have any relation to each other, and he can also do this with elements in the environment.
Of course, our dear Detective will also have debates with other characters, as confrontational and hot-blooded as he is. Opposing characters will give several statements as testimony. To each statement, you can Press for more information or Present any evidence that contradicts the statement. Here, the goal is to debunk your opponent's logic until they can no longer argue with you. Unless the story demands that the inverse occur, of course.
Every important character gets their own "OBJECTION!
" and "HOLD IT!
" voice clips. Furthermore, the game employs a unique graphic for each phrase; written in the font of the "Neptunia
" in the game's title, the phrase zooms into the textbox and the multicolour circuitry lines will glow and spread out from the phrase before fading away from the inside out, in a manner not dissimilar to waves from a splash.
