I want to make a vn and there are a few aspects that I definitely want to put in, so I would appreciate your thoughts on these ideas:
Technology-based Denpa,
Change of protagonist after introducing characters so the reader feels a disconnect from the protagonist but is forced to see their perspective,
Underlying themes of philosophy (mainly morality and humanity),
Disturbing scenes (like guro).

The plot so far: is it starts off like a slice of life just to introduce characters, and then protagonist is changed to a new character who wasn't established before. Old protagonist commits suicide and is 'reborn' as an AI, and arranges a meeting with the characters. AI tells everyone that they can move freely within a given area and are under rule of the 'moderator'. Protagonist is chosen as 'moderator' and she gains control over everyone except AI, so she decides to take advantage of the situation where she has total control over a few individuals.

I'm still at the beginning so these are just ideas. I would appreciate if you would give feedback. Thanks!

That seems quite interesting, rough around the edges sure, but very interesting.

I like the part about how the new protagonist can control other characters only if such control can be influenced by the players' choices.

I'd love to hear more about your idea if you've got time and interest to develop & share it further :)Last modified on 2019-01-06 at 14:06

I plan on making a slightly different version of the normal vn route style, where usually each route is based around a character and the character just has one route, but I plan on making each hero have at least two different routes instead of just multiple endings but one route. The true ending is supposed to be viewed after understanding each character's perspective on the main event when they're in different situations. Right now I have a rough idea of a science/sadism side, where the protagonist does everything to torment them for her own enjoyment or for scientific advancement. The other would be a romance side where the characters kind of forget the situation and you see more of them in their normal life. The romance side would be more grounded in reality with much more realistic issues, while the science/sadism side would be much more extreme with it's content. I'm glad that there is some interest in my ideas, and I'm still working on them so many parts are in the roughest state possible (I'm still figuring out how to use my drawing tablet). Also another thing I wanted to add is the art style would be more cartoony than most vns, mainly because I think there should be more non-anime art styles in vns. If this seems a bit incoherent I will gladly (try) to explain what I meant. Thanks!
