Engine: RPG Maker MV
Synopsis: The game is a horror mystery, so it doesn't have any fighting system. There are puzzles and different strategies for trying to survive different situations. The game also has a time system where different things will happen at different times of the night and overall, you have the option to do a lot of things.
Roles Needed: I have developed the story and am creating the game, I even have people in charge of the soundtrack and visual art but I am in need of people who can create original pixel art such as sprites and tile sets. This being said, I am not opposed to anyone who is talented in music or art to help as well, but it isn't as much top priority as sprites and tile sets. Everyone who joins this project also does get a say in the story and gameplay with all opinions being considered and discussed.
My Ability to Help: I am the main story writer for the game and have enough knowledge of RPG Maker to make most of it. I'm not too good at creating plugins so I may need help with that in the future, possibly. I also have a small development team already as mentioned before and am fairly good at keeping them organized. I do know I am not always a perfect writer and getting feedback from my team has been really helpful so far and I'd love to hear what ideas you would have moving forward.
Basic Story: Austin Mendez is a freshly graduated law student who has fallen in love with a girl named Lesa (still working on her last name). Austin has decided to marry her but before he proposes to her, Lesa asks him to meet her family that lives in a small town in Washington. Austin travels there and arrives in town before Lesa. When he arrives he finds out that the people in town act a bit odd and have a constant fear of the night, warning Austin to stay inside before when the sun goes down. Apparently there have been a series of kidnappings in town and a lot of the people in town claim that monsters have been taking people from their homes and eating them alive. Austin spends the night at a hotel when hears someone screaming. Long story short, he was attack by a monster that night and was saved by an entity known as the Overseer that tells Austin that he must find the person kidnapping all the victims. The Overseer gives Austin one night to do so, telling Austin that Austin will die if he fails to complete this task by the end of the night. Austin is also a suspect in the disappearance of a lady who was staying in the room next door. Austin also finds out that Hope, Lesa's little sister, is the next target of the kidnapper. Austin has no choice but to go into town and investigate the missing people, find the kidnapper and save Hope all before the sun rises.
(There are many more details and information that the player will not know going in and I'll go more into detail with that to anyone who wants to join. We will also likely have a Discord channel dedicated to communication but if you don't have one then we can work around that.)
Characters: (Only two of them)
Austin, the main character who has to explore the town and not get arrested or killed.
Hope is Lesa's little sister who for some reason is the kidnapper's first target and most important one.
