We are about to have an influx of refugees from the shuttered 8chan, and this is probably inevitable.
However, this is not 8chan, and it's definitely not 4chon.
Participation is welcome, but a sudden sharp increase of alt-right material and garbage posts will not be tolerated.
Please leave your hitlers, seisatsu.pngs, burning crosses, and shitpost floods at the door.
Even on /ot/, we expect some level of quality in our posts. Please familiarize yourselves with our rules and guidelines, and make sure to lurk before posting.
Also, apologies for deleting the /4chon/ refugee thread outright, I overreacted. There's nothing wrong with such a thread as long as it doesn't cause me too much of a headache.
Enjoy your stay and don't be a dick.

Hello Uboa! I'm here to post an old, complete game that I have made (in rpgmaker 2003, released in 2016), called Jasei No In: The Serpent's Lust.

This game was a project from university a few years ago, that I expanded into a full, completed game. JNI is a project about adaptation, specifically: I adapted half of a short story (usually called Jasei no In or The Serpent's Lust or some variant) from a collection of classic Japanese supernatural tales (called the Ugetsu Monogatari) and turned it into a videogame.

From my devblog:
"Jasei no In: The Serpent’s Lust is a short, linear game with a strong narrative… This particular story is a very popular one in Japan, and has gone through many adaptations since its initial creation around 1776.

The protagonist, Manago, is a simple weaver girl who gets caught in a rainstorm. A mysterious man in white appears out of nowhere and shields her from the rain, lending her an umbrella. Feeling indebted to him and perhaps a little attracted to him as well, she tries to return the umbrella to his manor hidden deep in the woods. Manago quickly becomes swept up in a romance that is not all that it seems, and must figure out who exactly the mysterious man in white really is, or face severe consequences.

The game isn’t horror, but it contains supernatural/paranormal themes."

The game is short and can most likely be completed in an hour or two. There is one timed segment that has some fun flavor text if you go through it fast enough. At the end is a bonus room that explains part of the adaptation process, some items of cultural significance, and why I designed the game in certain ways.

Because it was a university project rather than a passion project, the game goes pretty deep in Japanese culture, and the style/dialogue of the story tries to emulate classical speech (think a downgraded Shakespearean/Victorian). So while I tried to put a flair and spin on certain things, the story is tame, there's no gore or sexual themes (unless you think reciting poetry is hot), the art style is simple, and it's mostly a way to try and communicate this old story, that I personally found interesting, to a new audience.

ALSO: I was told to make two separate threads for this game and another I've made to keep discussion localized, so I hope that's ok!

And here are a couple more images/gifs of the environments as well.

This looks pretty cool. Did some research in to the name, looks like its an amalgamation of some old Chinese stories with some spins on the plot.

> 蛇性の婬」は、『雨月物語』中唯一の中篇小説の体をとっている。原話は、『警世通言』第28巻「白娘子永鎮雷峰塔」であるが、途中から終結を道成寺縁起へ結びつける、独自な要素をもっている。


Jasei no In is a novella from "May Stories (lit. rain month stories)". The original version is from "Stories to Caution the World"'s 28th volume, "The White Maiden Trapped in Leifeng Pagoda", but along the way combines the ending of "Dojoji Omen" (the story of Kiyohime) and has its own unique elements as well.

この小説を粉本として書かれたとされる日本の文学作品に、江戸時代後期の上田秋成作とされる『雨月物語』中の『蛇性の淫』[32]がある。

Won't bother translating this, but for those interested, go to https://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E9%9B%A8%E6%9C%88%E7%89%A9%E8%AA%9E#%E8%9B%87%E6%80%A7%E3%81%AE%E5%A9%AC

Anyways, the art looks great. I'll definitely give it a shot.
