A shy high school artist. A girl who came out of a painting. And the story which they create together. Painter Story started off as an idea in the summer of 2009, a visual novel where a magic paintbrush brought to life the girl of the protagonist’s dreams while he struggled to get acquainted with his new school. Since playing Katawa Shoujo for the first time in December 2009, I’ve refined the idea, and let my own project take shape.
It’s still quite early in the project, but the story itself is certainly taking shape. To start things off, I’ve been working on just the first quarter of it; developing the plot and writing scripts for the scenes belonging to the first three days of the story. My goal is to have a solid draft for those days finished by the end of March, and then start recruiting a couple artists and a musician so that a demo built on those three days will be completed by the end of June. Currently the dev team is myself as writer and director, and a friend of mine who is serving as editor and tool developer.
