    Hey guys, it's me, Ruyi (with too much time on her hands) to only translate webnovel chapters! If you were around last year, you might have remembered this April Fools' joke thread I did on a fake Poison Genius Consort (PGC) spinoff novel.

    Well now I'm back, with another joke visual novel thread. Except it's real (sort of).

    [​IMG]

    Cannon Fodder's Counterattack Record is a visual novel I coded for release on April Fools Day. No tricks. No kidding. No mock-up trailers, fake GooglePlay/App Store promos, or pretending to get arrested the day after. I can tell you right now that the playable demo will feature:
    • An alternate universe rewrite of PGC's plot
    • Cannon fodders defeating protagonists!
    • Time traveling!
    • Delicious food!
    • Hot guys!
    • A cat!
    Annnnnnnnd eventually 3 obtainable love interests ranging between the senior brother with a caustic mouth and caring heart, the gentle merchant king with a hidden obsessive streak, and the secluded sect leader with a dark and eccentric secret. (Or you can ignore them all and go the besties route with your pretty female teammate.)

    You can follow the official (unofficial) twitter thread for info on story & characters.

    Ruyi done and out~


    While I'm here I might as well ping the guys from last year's thread yo: @Aisha Ann @Rumby @Scheherazade @Guan Zhong

    zooming in the image it looks different, but zoomed out it looked like comic sans lol

    I still would opt for a better font though. Or let people choose their font.

    Lol the amount of coding it’d take for me to manage that is still beyond my skill level. I don’t want to break the game!

    I like Neucha, it fits the mood of the game. :9 It’s not supposed to be some serious story thing considering I’m blatantly rewriting canon...

    That’s version Alpha 1.0, a reference for myself. I’m still in the testing stages with a few players.

    I've played some of this already. It's really good. Dramatic, and not just reading text but also there are choices to made and quick time eventis. Good music too.
