...Okay this should probably have gone in Spamfest, but I did not want it to get... spammed as it would in Spamfest. I wasn't going to post on VDex about details for the new project (which I keep mentioning in announcements) - I have been using my personal Twitter instead. But Twitter moves fast and people miss things, so here goes.

A Collection Of Things I Have Revealed For Newproject (including its name)

The very first teaser image released on Twitter:

Spoiler: show

I also mentioned the art is tinyfied because of the number of characters, but this guy is as small as he looks and is the token shota. He is not the person speaking, and the katakana is just a Unicode/UTF-8 character encoding test (a.k.a. just checking to see if all fonts are supported).

Shortly after, this was revealed:

Spoiler: show

It was also revealed that the above character is Triumph - the same Triumph from VDex's Gacha corner. It was also hinted at that Mei is in the game. It was also said that those are the only two VDex characters in it (...for now?)

Earlier today, several things were revealed!

One, the project is called Arcanum Chronica and has a locked Twitter account, @arcanumchronica, for which follow requests aren't being accepted (nor denied).

Two, this image:

Spoiler: show

Three, in a conversation with someone on Twitter, a number of other things:

- It has visual novel elements, but is not a pure visual novel. It has heavy focus on character interaction.
- Asked if one could "date dudes", the answer was yes.
- Asked if one could be a dude dating dudes, the answer was mostly no - because of the number of characters, het options only for now, though same sex options are planned for the future. There is one exception to the "het only" rule which "can't really be called het", no further details given there.
- There are 21 characters in total, and they each have a tarot card associated with them (The World is an exception and has no character).
- Triumph is Temperance.

Also, asked to reveal The Emperor, I released this image just now:

Spoiler: show
Image


ETA: asked about colors for The Emperor: he has dark brown/black eyes, and is "asian" in terms of heritage (in quotes because there is no Asia in the setting). He is about 180cm tall and works out.

Bonus trivia: Out of these characters (Mei excluded, since she is only hinted at) only The Emperor is written by myself. Triumph is still written by Fimbulvetr as he has always been.

...AND THAT IS EVERYTHING THAT IS KNOWN. As I blabber more about it I will post about it here.

If people aren't okay with this post being here just let me know. :c I just figured I'd sate some of you guys' curiosity (...or pique it even more idk).

I CAN'T EVEN PRETEND I WON'T BE DATING THE KING щ(ಥДಥщ)

...okay that was pretty much my whole post, but then I was like I SHOULD PROBABLY SAY SOMETHING MORE SUBSTANTIAL BECAUSE THIS ISN'T A SPAMBOARD

So if dating is going to be an element (I assume optional?), does that mean we get to replay the game for different routes? :Oa

Also still curious about THE WORLD. :'| Maybe it's reserved for an event, kinda like in P3 (idk P4, I never finished it--)? Hmm...

I love visual novel type stuff so this looks really fun!! :o interesting though that the first screenshot has katakana? are you intending to make japanese a significant part of the site?

also it seems to have a school setting, is that true? I am interested in the role triumph and mei play and if there'll be fun references to vdex in this game, haha


and what is the rating for this site and the intended audience?

I really am curious now! :O
I actually thought P3-themed originally because of the uniforms. xD
Looks great, Shiro! ^^

I CAN ANSWER ONE OF THESE NOW i will answer all of these eventually.

The katakana in the first screenshot is actually a Unicode/UTF-8 encoding test.

Oh, so does that mean we get to name some of the characters? Mana -> ??? player character?

Now my assumption is #YES because I'm sure that if it were otherwise, you would have said so. OuO

Yay! Information about that new project! *waiting eagerly to see more* Thanks for everything, I really like VNs.

But are you sure that this will be able to support Vdex? Because that would need a constant flow of money, and Visual Novels in general are played out in a relatively short time. I hope you can make it work. In the meantime I'm waiting for those closed beta invites you mentioned earlier :D

It's not a pure VN, as I said - the format's changed for browser play, and it's specifically set up so that people can't rush through everything in a single day. There will be other elements to gameplay as well, but the focus is on the storyline, at least until people finish it.

Ooooh this looks really neat! I have to admit that when I saw the first spoiler image, I had to think of a visual novel right away xD; Looking at it, I think I definitely will be giving it a try at least :>
