Hi! My name is Nia and my Gam Jam project is a visual novel titled Silent Storms. :^) This is my first ever game!
Synopsis: On the rainiest day of the season, the player recalls how lonely they are as they watch their classmates walk home with their friends. Despite their thoughts, they try to continue home but find the rain to be too harsh. After getting caught outside in a thunderstorm, the player makes the choice of buying an umbrella at their local convenience store. They must choose between between 2 different colored umbrellas and deal with two customers who are VERY particular about getting their favorite color. The player must either choose to compromise and share the umbrella with them, or succumb to their fear and anxiety about socializing and brave the storm alone.
It's a fairly simple game, but I thought it would be manageable for a two week project! I hope the minimal mechanics will help me at least get my feet wet with the Ren'py enginge. ^^
My current progress: I've drafted their different routes in Twine! It still needs some fine polishing, but I thought this could help me when I actually begin to program things into Ren'py.
I was also trying to decide between logo designs. Later I would like to add the silhouette of an umbrella behind the text. For now though I was experimenting with fonts ^^
