[Fangame] NEW GAME PLUS

Post by thinglikerbucky » Sun Jul 26, 2020 2:00 am

Hey you! Yes, you! Do you like Homestuck? Do you like speculative fiction about utopias? Does communism intrigue you? Are you over the age of 18? Do you like making stuff? Do you have a bunch of fantrolls/fankids that you don’t have anything to do with?

If you said yes to most (if not all) of those questions, please consider applying for NEW GAME PLUS!! This is a visual novel project aimed at taking advantage of the completely new world we know is created at the end of the SBURB session in Homestuck proper. Isn’t it weird to fast-forward a society, only for it to still be a capitalist “democracy?” We think Earth C should be communist, actually. Please help us make it a reality.

We’re looking for writers, artists, musicians, and programmers!! Sign-ups are open 7/25/2020 - 9/30/2020, or until all roles are filled.

You can read the info doc and then sign up below, or check out the plot summary and mission statement:

Mission Statement
NEW GAME PLUS is a game dedicated to anarcho-communism, restorative justice, and positive character development through difficult growth. NGP is a response to the perceived missed opportunities in creating a new world from scratch, and aims to explore the Homestuck characters entering a world that can and will help them address the ways their characters can grow in a healthy manner. The NGP team will not tolerate racism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, antisemitism, classism, or any other bigotry in its content, from its team members, or in its community.
This is a fan game that is not being run for profit. There is the possibility that the group will decide to release a Patreon or Sponsus for early access, character designs, story planning, etc., should the team decide there is enough interest. Our Director is a coordinator and does not have final decisions on the story. Our Writers and Artists should care about the characters they are depicting, and their works will be made with care. This project will be OC-heavy as well as including a long list of Homestuck characters.

Inspirational texts for this work include The Dispossessed, Parable of the Sower and Parable of the Talents, Walkaway, writing by Margaret Atwood, and other utopian and dystopian fiction centered around picturing worlds where we can strive to be better.

Plot Summary
One year after the gods return to Earth C, a group of consort social workers are tasked with helping each of the gods enter their new society. The consorts have to help each of them find a role they can fill - not a job!! Just what services they’re able to offer that will fulfill them and their society. While the world the players started accelerating five thousand years ago began with ideas of a great democratic society, the world they have entered is egalitarian, just, and anarcho-communist. It’s a lot to adjust to, with much of what was familiar entirely stripped away. A lot of the players end up finding that they have better lives when they discover new people; others band together and find support with each other. Where will their journey take them? Find out in NEW GAME PLUS.
I make a podcast called Will it Homestuck? where we classpect decidedly non-Homestuck things. Check out our website here: https://willithomestuck.carrd.co/
