Banette & Guilmon

- A Visual Novel -

Description:

A visual novel/movie about a Guilmon who’s been living in a modern version of the Pokemon World ever since he walked through a mysterious portal six years prior. Living at an apartment with a reclusive and distant Banette, Guilmon often feels unappreciated and unwanted.

Having a hard time making friends with many other Pokemon, he struggles to find a place in the world. However, a few days after they start to get filmed by a documentarian, the relationship between Banette and Guilmon begins to fall apart.

Notes:

There are three scenes in the game that are intended to be synced to music. If you click out of the screen during these scenes, the scene will be out of sync and pretty dang wonky. I don't think there's any way to deal with this, so I'll just tell you which scenes I'm talking about.

Spoiler:
The prologue.
The beginning of scene 6.
The credits sequence.

Loveloveloved it. Such an unexpected little gem!! Amazing story with depth and well-written characters - it was simple but so much more engaging than many stories with too much thrown into them. I don't want to say too much here as to not spoil potential players, but my jaw did drop at the... reveal of where Guilmon really went xD And I adored the little things, like the Pokemonized names (Zoroark always dies first lol) and the Gengar moving through shelves. And the Mimikyu, omg. Anyway, Banette's struggle was really relatable for me and it was great to watch his journey. I'll admit I expected to make some choices, with consequences, but having it be basically just a movie was a great experience too.

Good stuff :D

Thanks a bunch! I'm more of a film guy than a game developer, for the most part, and this is the only way I feel like I'd ever be able to make a movie, so that's what I did! And that's what I hope to do again, somewhere down the line. I appreciate you giving my project a chance, and thank you for all the nice comments!

Was interested in this when I read a little bit about what it was since I'm doing a similar thing myself, gave it a go and I'm glad I did! I liked the morals of the story and the little journey the characters went through. Well done. Hope you make more of these!

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who had the idea to do a story like this! Feel free to send me a PM whenever you finish whatever project you've been working on. If you don't mind me asking, where did you hear about this project?

Sure, I definitely will. I heard about it right here at PC, saw that it was a visual novel/story-driven game and was interested pretty immediately since I love short stories. Best of luck with whatever you're doing in the future!
