Can we reach it? Maybe yes, maybe not, but let us work hard until the end! In this game, you'll play as a newbie voice actor who strives for the Seiyuu Award.
On his way to reach his goal, though, he will still live his daily life and YOU get to make the choices on how he should spend the days.
Do you want him to take on extra lessons in order to reach the goal faster? Or, would you like to go on a romantic date with the guy you accidentally met at shopping mall? It's ALL your choice. The game is highly interactive and there's no usual restriction in plot that you get in ordinary VNs. If you don't feel like working, feel free to slack. If you feel like being single for the rest of your life, yes it can be done why would you do it in a DATING sim, though? Just keep in mind that ALL your actions matter and will decide how the game ends!
Wanna try it out firsthand? You can play the demo NOW! Click on the image below to go to the download link! Demo Download link Updated to ver 1. All parts of the demo are still subject to changes. The final build of the game may differ from the demo, but you get the idea on how we want this game to be. The demo contains only the first two weeks of the game. Some features are still disabled in this demo, but you get the rough idea on how we want to approach this game.
The demo has NOT been proofread, so there might be some grammatical mistakes here and there. However, we want you to know that the final game will be thoroughly proofread by professionals, so don't worry. For the full game, you can play as the main character for around 1 year game time. The estimated completion date is Summer It might sound far away, but we don't want to make promises that we can't fulfill.
This estimate is a worst-case one, so there's a chance it might be released sooner than that. If you want to pledge via Paypal, please contact us personally via e-mail at meyaoigames gmail. Backing via Paypal is for those who have trouble pledging via Kickstarter doesn't have credit card, etc.
Amount raised via Paypal will also be counted towards reaching stretch goal! You'll play as a newbie voice actor, who's also a runaway, who's on the verge of being kicked out from his agency. Going back home is not an option, thus begin his journey to become a good-enough-voice-actor-to-not-get-kicked-out-of-the-agency!
Join his journey and woo some guys on the way! Each character has different preferences in what parts they want to stimulate!
Don't forget to keep your role preferences in mind when stimulating your partner! Do you want to see his face and abs? Just toggle the "front view". Wanna see his bum, instead? Each of the guys like different types of clothing, so keep that in mind! Psst, you may get additional affection bonus when you "accidentally" wear the same clothes as your partner!
Spend time with your love or spend your own sweet time in the nearby cafe Not only experiencing the intimate moments, you also get to argue and fight like actual couple! Keep in mind, though, that you have to go on an audition first before you get the job!
When you have a crush on someone, your wallpaper will be that of your crush and when you get a boyfriend, your wallpaper picture will be that of your boyfriend and you! Spend your time and energy carefully so that you can increase the most affection!
This game will have a CG gallery where you can view CGs that you have obtained and replay the scenes! Seiyuu Danshi will be available for Windows, Macintosh and Linux. No Desktop OS gets left behind!
Meyaoi Games is comprised of a very small team, consisting only two sisters who love both yaoi and games. We are curently doing the art, programming, writing, and even making the video ourselves. We have been making Seiyuu Danshi entirely by only the two of us. However, hiring people who are good at what they do will greatly enhance the quality of the game.
And that's the reason for this Kickstarter. If funded more than expected, the rest of the funding will be put to add even more contents to the game, These additional contents include: For those of you who give your support to us, we thank you from the bottom of our heart. You guys make two sisters' dream of finishing a BL game of our own comes true!
The support doesn't only come from monetary backing, we also owe a lot to you guys who help us by spreading words about this game. No amount of 'thank you' can represent our gratitude to you all! Where is the game at and where is it going?
As you may have seen in the demo, the basic system of the game itself is done, and the only programming that still needs adjustment is the "Foreplay mode", as there are some changes that I want to apply to the system. However, all remaining system is done! Does that mean the game is nearing the end of production, though? Dating sim relies on a LOT of events to be encountered or it will end up a boring stat-grinding dating sim.
I have encountered some dating sims that are too focused on the stat-raising part and ends up neglecting the events, and I don't want Seiyuu Danshi to join the list. And so, the remaining production is majorly filling the game with hopefully interesting events and CGs to accompany them.
We also want to add more things to do inside the game, including side quests talking with NPCs inside town and jobs. However, we know that being overly ambitious is toxic to game development, and we already keep that in mind. As for sprite art, the sprite art you see in the demo will be completely replaced with a more dynamic one this time, it's not drawn by a half-assed artist like me, so it will look a lot better: Each character will have 2 dynamic poses that represent their personalities, multiple clothing, and a lot of expressions.
This, we hope, will address the issue that people have stated multiple times in the previous questionnaire we distributed regarding the similarities of characters, since each character will have their own dynamic pose based on their personalities this time.
We hope this will help players differentiate them and make each of them feel more alive. For music, the music tracks we currently use inside the demo are from royalty-free music packs that we bought it was due to our small budget. If we get funded, we will use some of the money to commission for custom soundtrack it will probably not all, because custom tracks are expensive, but we will commission as much as we can afford.
Who are we gonna commission for the tracks? I have been in contact with a local professional music composer in my country unfortunately, you can't find him on the net. He's pretty flexible, and he has the ability to make different kinds of music I have seen his portfolio, and they are amazing. For now, we are still unsure on what direction our music should go, whether to go to Persona-like vocalized BGM we all have to agree that they sound cool, but will it match Seiyuu Danshi's overall feel?
This might disappoint you guys, but we will not add voice acting unless we reach the stretch goal for it. The current goal is the bare minimum we need to finish the game, and adding voice acting will require more funding and will push the development time further voice acting is not easy to implement, especially when the game's dialogs are scrambled here and there, like in Seiyuu Danshi xD. We might be able to recruit hobbyist instead for free, but bad voice acting is even worse than no voice acting at all, in our opinion, and thus we have decided to postpone it until we receive enough funding to do so.
We hope for your understanding. If we meet the voice acting goal, the cast will be decided by backers voting those with [Complete Digital Pack] tier and above via private forum.
We will post some of the auditions that we find qualify for the minimum requirements, and we will let you guys decide whom to choose from there. Voice in the Kickstarter video is only finalized for the video itself, so even MC's voice can still be changed. I think that's all that we can say for now. If you want to ask things, go ahead and ask us whether on our social media or the Kickstarter's comment page!
Any tweets containing SeiyuuDanshi hashtag will be counted towards reaching the goal! Once the goal has been reached, we will create additional contents, which is 4-koma chibi manga and childhood pics of our characters. Hope it serves as an incentive to help spread word about this!
How many tweets are we currently at? Get prints and digital copy of your character inside the game! Do you have an amazing idea on scenes that you would like to realize? This pack is for you! Design your own CG and we will work to put the CGs inside the game. You can choose one character who MC should partner with inside the CG, what they are doing, and the overall theme. They are all possible! Would you like to see how it feels to be inside a game? With this pack, you can become one of the townfolks in Seiyuu Danshi who often gives valuable information and mini quest to MC.
The character will be designed based on your appearance, name, and other profile information. Fujoshi or fudanshi act as informant inside the game who give valuable info regarding a character's relationship to the main character, we'll make the character based on your photo or by request and you can name the character yourself. An opportunity to be an important part of Meyaoi Games's future.
