Well for starters, you're probably wondering what the fudge is A.W.E.S.O.M.E and why in the name of the lord above would I want to ever play it or download it? Well, be prepared for a beefy blog entry because until the artist gets out of bed and finishes off the character sketches, I have to keep you all busy somehow!
You're probably thinking that the artist is usually the one that comes up with the ideas and...well...that's probably right. However, despite my lack of talent with art, I came up with the initial idea of A.W.E.S.O.M.E and constructed its bare bones. Together, myself and gave it the flesh, blood, organs and everything else you need to make a body (and we still are!)
I was originally going to make this story into a novel or post the contents on FictionPress or Wattpad - someplace like that. I talked to about three or four others about the idea who, more or less, instantly fell in love with the idea and told me if I didn't produce SOMETHING out of it they would hunt me down in my grovel in the UK and slaughter me.
So, being a big RP derp, I came to my bestest friend in the world (literally, since she DOES live on the other side of the world) and asked her to roleplay the idea with me. And it went really, really well~
Now usually I'm the one who comes up with the crazy ideas between us, but this time it was my Kuma-bear who said 'I want to make this into a visual novel' and instantly I could hear the lightbulb that hovers above my head turn on. I instantly agreed to the idea, and it was settled.
would draw and I would be the one who constructed the script, planned out the order of events, what was to be done in what way, the options to be picked and all the boring stuff that I actually find quite fun to do~
We settled on the name A.W.E.S.O.M.E, which when I planned out the characters names, types and the basic plot, intended for the word 'awesome' to be interpreted somewhere. So no, we don't think the idea is totally rad and awesome (though in my opinion, it's pretty epic) but it has a simple, cheesy meaning behind WHY it's called awesome. I won't give away why! I'll see if any of you can guess it .
This is 100% guaranteed unless one of us dies or something. Well, if I died I'm sure could still continue this but if she died, I can't draw so I'd be kinda screwed.
So~ for the actual bare bones of the story, its setting, the main characters and additional info - check out the Blog titled 'A.W.E.S.O.M.E: Everyone Has a Story'.
