I’ve run into a bit of a rode block with the story, I have the “Love interests” and the “Player characters” done with their bare bones backstory and personality but I really need some ideas on what the main story should be. Nothing I can come up with is appealing to me, so I’ve decided to come here and see if anyone here might be interested in giving me a basic story pitch.
The basic idea is that this is a Merman/Mermaid dating sim, sadly for now the romance options are male only but the player can choose between a female mer or a male mer, their siblings and no. One of them is NOT going to like die or anything. I am also thinking about making it a possibility for the player to help the sibling fall in love to but now I’m just getting of topic.
The player is a shark mer who gets trapped in garbage debri that some humans unknowingly tossed into the ocean and onto the player and their sibling, the gunk from the trash was closing up the their gills basically drowning them when just as they begin to black out someone or something grabs them and that’s how it all starts. I’ll now give you guy’s the basics of the love interests~ This goes from easiest to hardest btw.
Aldrik plays the role of the “Best Friend” suitor. He’s the one who rescues the player and is the easiest to romance.
Ace plays the role of the “Nerdy” suitor. The Healer of the this mer pod and the one who nurses the player back to health.
Adar plays the role of the “Snobby” suitor. The prince of the pod and soon to be King.
Cadao plays the role of the “Flirty” suitor. A musician and a heartbroken mer, left by a previous lover now jaded by it.
Lea plays the role of the “Loner” suitor. He is the outcast and is cursed with bad luck, anyone close to him gets affected by it to.
Pearce plays the role of the “Rival” suitor. He’s basically a tusundere, he picks fights with the player and pulls a ton of pranks on them and just does his best to make the players life in the reef miserable.
I’d love to hear your guy’s ideas for a story line with these guy’s! I might make a future addition to it where the romance options are female but for now this is how it’ll be! Thanks so much for helping me out!
