Been investigating DAZ3D over the last two weeks and really liking what I see so far. My main projects will always be created by me from the ground up, but since I like to diversify and work on as many projects/stories as possible, it´s just untenable to do everything from scratch. Daz3D models are a good alternative for Visual novel-like games, so I will likely use this resource for “The Payback”, so I can focus on story and gameplay.
“The Payback” aims to be an adult themed visual novel game, meaning it plays out like a choose-your-own-adventure book with prerendered still graphics with a touch of animation where called for. There will be a big emphasis on dialogue and moral choices.
Basically you play as a guy who was bullied in school, and after years of plotting your revenge you now have the opportunity you´ve been waiting for. Your goal is to ruin the lives of the bullies, one by one, by stealing that which they cherish the most – their money, wives and daughters.
The story is very ambitious, due to the complexity planned, and is most likely going to take more than a year to complete. I plan to have a first demo by the end of the year, but for m0re serious development I need to upgrade my rig, which is planned for february 2018.
