This has nothing to do with Tailor Tales, though it’s slightly related.
So the reason people want to play Tailor Tales is because they want to date virtual boys, correct? Of course there can be more reasons, but that is the primary reason. Considering I’ve said from the very start this won’t ever be completed, and currently it’s hiatus, I’m wondering if there’s another way I can accomplish this.
I’ve been recently getting into roleplay, and I’m playing this romantic line, and it’s just so sweet, and even better than any of the dating games I’ve played.
Which is why an idea popped up in my head. How about an elaborate Harvest Moon roleplay? Most Tailor Tales fans are also Harvest Moon fans, so they’d fit right in. There are some active Harvest Moon games out there already, I know that. But hey, I can make it much more invested (being an artist and all), and can attract a crowd.
Roleplaying is done by taking on a character (say Claire from Harvest Moon), and then writing with another player (who also has a character, say Jack). You write what your character is doing, and they write what their character is doing, and then you just keep writing in turns to create a story. A lot of roleplaying is done to create romantic plots between characters, so in essence, a responsive dating game.
I’d host the game on LiveJournal, it’s easiest to manage, and people can have journals of their characters and even comment in-character on other character journals. Obviously everything hinges on the players, so I was wondering if people would be interested in this.
I would have a few ideas for the game, such as earning a weekly amount of money from your current job, and then being able to buy upgrades for your house with this. Your house will be an image I create, since I have created (and still can) all these cute resources that would fit right in. This would attract a lot of players :)
Though I’m sure a lot of people would want to play their OCs (original character), and that can get quite messy (I would not tolerate Mary-Sues or self inserts). So which one would you play? Your own character, or one from the Harvest Moon universe such as Nami, Gray, Jack etc.
Note: I want to attract people who have never roleplayed before, instead of veterans of the roleplaying scene, hence why I’m posting it here.
