Opening 

Abount BIOS-EX

Bios Ex is a Psychological Mystery, a Visual Novel inspired by the old VN, while maintaining a modern character

Inspired by novel/videogames like Eve Burst Error, Yu-No and Policenauts, science fiction movies and old anime like Speed Grapher and 3X3 eyes

STORY / Prologue

When Eiza wakes up on the cold floor of a jail cell, his mind is completely blank. He remembers only two things: His name and that he’s not a terrorist. However, the government seems to think the opposite; they accuse him of a bombing attack to the local university of his hometown. The journals, the media, the police officers…everyone blames it on him.

It’s a death sentence. But only if Ori Asylum will declare he was mentally stable at the moment of the attack, it seems there have been objections that have saved him from the grim reaper. To determine his psychological conditions, he’s sent to the psychiatric hospital in Sapporo; there, he finds himself trapped in an unsettling, suffocating reality that makes him doubt the truth of what he’s been told until then. Between mixed memories and unexplainable events, he meets three girls who’ll change his life: Innocent Shizune and her mysterious sketchbook, the alluring vice-director Nao and Supra with her sad eyes.

If Eiza wants to break free from his cage, he has no other choice than investigate and discover the truth about who he is and what he has done

Gameplay and INFO

It’s a medium-length novel where the player can interact with the main characters and make crucial decisions that will shape the course of the story. The choices will mostly revolve around the type of attitude the player can assume in response to the characters they’re interacting with, and to the different mysteries, they’re bound to encounter and deal with.  

There are two different routes per possibile love interest, a good ending and 2 bad ending, for a total of six routes.  

Once it reaches the goal of 8500$, there will be the opportunity of playing the game from Supra’s perspective. There could be scenes classified as “ecchi”, but nothing explicit.

Music 

To give a better feel old style we decided to use the YM-2608 sound chip (used for many pc-98 games like Yu-No) and some tracks accompanied by MIDI 90s

We plan to bring some collaborations with Japanese composers, one of them is Hideki Higuchi, a composer with a big experience in the visual novel and videogames ... he has produced music for PC-98 and also recent VN as Clannad

Eiza Gaido

Supra Solokova

Shizune Koide

Risks and challenges

-Risk
We’ve been working on this project only for a year and observing the market of the visual novels for four. This is our first game and we’re inexperienced, but willing to Improve.

-Challenges
Recently, visual novels tagged as now, ecchi or comic and american-like visual novels have taken the spotlight. Rarely we can play a western VN that recalls the Japanese style.

We would like to try our best and offer you innovative visual novels of this type, focusing more on psychological, scientific and thrilling plots.
