Hello I am currently working on a game called High School Life
As you might of guesses it is about freshman and their first year of high school
This is the start of a first game in what will hopefully be a series of 4 with the first game being free.
The protagonist will have just moved to an unnamed state - so a completely new start. You can play as a boy or a girl, there are no differences in stats. However the game will be gender sensitive. If you are a boy applying for the sewing club it WILL be commented upon, likewise a girl applying for the football team WILL be commented upon by the other students.
There will be romance options which will be different for boys and girls. To be exact there will be 3 boy OCs and 3 Girl OCs. You will be friends with the same sex and friends/paramours with the opposite. I have only planned for same sex romances at the moment, this could be changed however.
The demo is in a very basic stage and its main purpose is to showcase the stat screen. You will have your base stats, your relationship stats, and your class stats. Class stats decide your final grade in the class that year - fail too many and you will be expelled!.
The setting is in America to appeal to a wider demographic - I am actually English. Therefore any advice on the American High School system would be greatly appreciated. Freshman year in particular, I am aware that prom would not happen however what events would happen in freshman year that could affect the story?
I will have the sorry excuse for a demo up ASAP
Thank you very much for taking the time to read this and constructive criticism would be very much appreciated
