Sherlock - The Pendant Soldiers (WIP)

Postby Graciex » Thu Nov 11, 2010 2:02 am

Hello everyone! I'm new to this site as well as the art of visual novel making. I am, however, and enthusiastic writer, and I think Novelty is a great way to extend this!

This will be my first visual novel ever, so I've joined the site in case I need any help with the technicalities. My game/story is based off the amazing BBC Sherlock series that aired a while back. For the uninitiated, it is an update of the Sherlock Holmes canon, putting him in the modern day. As someone who loves the canon, this show was perfect for me with all its references! Please do check it out if you haven't had the chance.

(Art is by my good friend who's deviantart account can be found at y0do.deviantart.com)

The story is now titled! It's a bit cryptic or I'd be giving to much of the plot away. Pendant here is related to the term for two paintings that are meant to be displayed together, or companion paintings. Not jewellery :)

The story is based on three of my favourite canon stories, Charles Augustus Milverton, The Devil's Foot and The Second Stain, as well as incorporating the plot of the TV series. I planned to have 5 chapters and 3 largely superficial endings, but now there are 6 chapters and two completely different endings and there are little ways in which the endings can differ.

Chapter 1 - The Case (DONE!)
Chapter 2 - The Break-in (DONE!)
Chapter 3 - The Hiding Place (DONE!)
Chapter 4 - The Warning (scenes needed)
Chapter 5 - The Ultimatum (scenes needed)
Chapter 6 - The Rescue (scenes needed)

Protagonists

Character Art - 100%
Background Art - 100%
Scenes - 20% (Only have sketches so far)
Script - 100% (DONE!)

Story Overall - 95% (only art needs to be finished! Hurry up y0do!!)

Comments and suggestions are welcome! I shall update this post as and when I finish things :)

The drawn characters look a lot like the actors. As a Sherlockian, I'm looking forward to seeing the final product.
Why? I like big ones, that's why.

First page has been updated to include all the protagonist character art I have so far. I'm not going to post the antagonists as that might spoil the story!
Also there is a more detailed breakdown of what I need to do.

Can I marry you?

I adore the art style, you've picked my favourite canon stories (Charles Augustus Milverton - FFFFF perfect choice) and evidently alot of work has gone into this. This instant you release it I will be hammering that download button! Can't wait and good luck!
(And you're obviously an original!Sherlock fan. I absolutely love the BBC series but GAH! There's only three episodes of it!)
