Project Versa

by Nathan Pell

    Poject versa is a VR stylized anime simulation, strategy, and vn-lite game with a heavy emphasis on voice controls.

    Project Versa is (prior to any discussion about direction as a team) a stylized anime sim, strategy, rpg-esque, visual novel lite that takes place in the universe Versa. A touch of waifu fun is optional.

    The minimum viable product for Project Versa is currently under heavy construction, however, the base game should resemble this format if no major changes occur:

    BEGIN
    Player assumes command of a spaceship
    Player follows scripted novel
        Player's choices affect stats:
            stat - money
            stat - relationship values (waifus?, factions, etc...)
            stat - character traits (perception, intelligence, etc...)
        Player's stats affect choices
            I.e. relationship stats allow access to new story arc where
                an alliance is created with a faction
    IF
    Player reaches break in visual novel
        Player may buy ship upgrades or ships to add to their fleet         etc...
        Player may advance plot
        IF
        Player has reached plot point where battle occurs
            Player assumes position as commander
            Player gives verbal orders to ai and interacts with
                environment in order to win battle
            IF 
            Player wins battle
                Player advances plot and returns to scripted novel
            ELSE IF
            Player loses battle
                Player returns to break in visual novel before battle

    The end goal of Project Versa should be to provide the player with an interesting story that resonates with strategy game-play mechanics in order to provide an entertaining experience. How we do that is entirely open to discussion.

    My part

    I am your partner. I am your programmer.

    We will struggle together, learn together, and succeed together.

    I can describe the idea behind Project Versa to you, and guide you where necessary. However, my ultimate role isn't to force my idea down your throat. My role is to program game mechanics and assist you to the best of my abilities in order to make Project Versa the best it can be.

    (Expected) Revenue

    Revenue is derivative of many factors, and I can't give you a straightforward answer here.

    If I had to guess, I would say that we should expect a minimum of $1,000 or more in the long run if we make a decent game and decide on a sales price around $10-$20 with minimal to no advertising or public relations.

    We can obviously do better than that, but we can definitely also do worse. There are no guarantees. I like to think that we'll get out what we put in with any luck.

    Risks & challenges

    There are no serious risks involved until the game becomes more popular. However, the challenges are numerous.

    We are not going to be a large team.
    Dedication is a must-have.
    Communication must be ever present and thorough.
    A direction needs to be established and made concrete.

    you actually are sensible with the revenue! i've seen too many teamups, where the person is like "$100,000 expected minimum revenue! even if it fails!" umm no that's not how it works

    Haha, thank you for noticing. I actually have previous experience releasing a game on steam (though it was only a student project) and that has really sobered some of my expectations.
