Revivals: Summer of Bishoujo 3 Project

By bluemist on June 10th, 2007


Re-opening this project is like reminiscing a old lost love.

Welcome to the revival!

Since I was away, I bet that all of you readers more or less know so much about bishoujo games already. I feel like I don’t need to introduce the genre anymore. The bishoujo/eroge/galge theme is exploding like wildfire right now, and most of that is attributed to game-to-anime conversions.

On the other hand, I saw a personal decrease in my fandom of the genre, mostly because I’m quite busy. So my this time around Bishoujo 3 will a be a bit more attuned to reviving my interest towards, er… beautifully drawn CG girls trapped in CG backgrounds with a text box and voice dialogue. And hopefully my sparse blogging would be improved by it as well.

The URL for the project is still the same, please visit:

See you!

Speaking of revivals…

There was one time when I was ‘really’ hell bent on making a bishoujo game myself! I gave huge effort on this, researching about simple programming tools, then made a prologue of the story. The picture above is an actual prototype for the project. But disaster struck, just when I had written well over 30 pages worth of visual novel material, I accidentally deleted the entire text while I was working on it! Several hopes of looking for a way to restore the file were gone, and since then I never got the drive to rewrite it again.

I faintly recall it was about one girl for now, yet unnamed. I modeled it as the shy type, and the story flowed along introducing the main lead as this normal guy who is starting life as a transfer student at this high school (how so typical right?). He gets to sit beside the girl, and after the usual introduction, the conversations will start to become weird… The girl starts talking about something, something this main guy can’t understand…

My storywriting was cut-off from there, but basically… I will start to introduce the girl as the shy… but… otaku-type! She will start to blabber about anime, manga and eroge like it’s the greatest thing in her world (while still maintaining the shy, slow type of talk), and our main guy, who knows practically NOTHING about being a geek, starts to get annoyed, because she now thinks the guy is ‘her own bishoujo game hero’! Now the girl starts to cling to him like crazy!

With this already busy life of mine it looks like this ill-fated project is a long long memory. This picture is the only surviving memento of the events. If, for some wild reason, I decided to revive the bluemist bishoujo game project, I hope I would never go through the disaster again.

So how many years ago did you make that supposed-to-be game? If Ren’Py were around that time you would have an easier time making it.

Yeah great vid.

You should definitly make some time to have a go at the game again – and organise a better backup system 😉

Cool~! I was thinking of making a bishoujo game myself. Will need to find time for it, though.

Speaking of which, what engine are you using to create it?

Yes, Ren’Py was around during my stint, that screenshot was actually made from Ren’Py!

Ah! I recognize that visual-novel making engine! That’s the same program I am using right now and has been translated to Chinese as well. Neat!
