Kickstarter Gift #2 - 8/18/17


ADDED 8/7/17: To further clarify the story, I updated the introduction.

Omni Link is an action packed adventure with a touch of romance. The interactions between the characters which includes love and friendship is an important part of the story. I wouldn't say it's a space opera, it's more an action story, but has some intense dramatic moments.

It features the characters below and a few more not posted who as part of a crew overcome hardships, and loss, as they come together to stop an entity called the Virus. It has cool fights, intense space combat and epic brawls.

The story focuses more on finding out what's real and what's pretend, as suggested with the song in the video... there is someone wondering if the love they feel is real or returned. If you know the characters well, you'll know there is some longing within each of them.

Dawn (aka ectype d-7) is a hologram becoming human throughout the story, Keb is trying to build a future while watching everything be taken away and Arcadia has lost her past and is driven by guilt. The Virus itself... unnamed, remains a mystery. What you're told in the story surrounding this mystery may not be true, but in testing I've been able to convince the reader to think they know what's going on.

I think this is something that hasn't been done before in this manner. I'm adding to this a heavy dose of really cool fights such as you'd find in your favorite shows. And believe me, some of the characters and abilities are really cool. The best being Omni Link.

Omni Link is a story that can make you feel something special is few and far between. We ask only what is needed to bring our adventure to life. That is why for our small goal we can deliver a finished first volume to you.

We've taken care of everything else. Including: two original songs, a playable and fun video game (with me as the lone developer with the help of my friend and talented artist Marfrey), and a story with 300 pages of dialogue and counting. These things are just a bonus to the epic adventure we are creating.

Take a look at the stretch goals - They will interest you.

Story 物語
Story 物語

 

Experience the journey of new and interesting characters with their own personal struggles and motives. Everyone is tied together in meaningful realistic ways although placed in an impossible situation. What is that situation? To defeat the "Virus". Code-name for the Apocalypse you think you know. However, this is not your average end of life scenario.

The story will have twists and turns and unexpected plots. The story will suggest to you what to believe, and we hope you will be fooled.

It all starts when our ace pilot Keb comes across a vessel of unknown origin. Through a misunderstanding, and a deathly explosion, he finds himself surprisingly alive and at the mercy of Dawn.

Let me introduce you to Dawn and some of the other characters. This should give you an idea of the story and struggle to stop the unstoppable Virus force.

Characters 登場人物
Characters 登場人物

Dawn is the type who will take you down and do it with a straight face. She's protective, and obeys without question, and best of all she's not real.

Dawn ドーン
Dawn ドーン

Designed with advanced technology from a civilization long extinct, she is truly one of a kind. She will surprise you with new abilities around every turn... her most powerful ability is Omni Link and she is our last hope.

Arcadia Is sporting some really fine weaponry that's merged biologically with her arm which she invented herself. She carries a massive burden which overshadows her truly caring and normally cheery personality.

Arcadia アルカディア
Arcadia アルカディア

She has a lot of emotion and energy built up through the years. In fact, around 150 years worth and she's about to let it all go in one shot.

Keb is the average guy that represents you and me. He's calm and collected and chill, well... most of the time. You can count on him to look at things positively even though life hasn't been that good for him.

Keb ケブ
Keb ケブ

In the picture above he's piloting a starship and he's the best there is, only because he hasn't met someone better... yet. Something happened that's never happened to anyone else and will bring about a great change.

This is just a random bad guy. He's not important to the story, but he's trying to be.

Suzumi is adventure wrapped in a small bundle. Her origin is somewhat of a mystery. She redefines the meaning of... "You're cute when you're angry."

Suzumi すずみ
Suzumi すずみ

You won't see many like her, and there's a reason for that. She wants to become strong, and if she can, she'll make 10x the difference literally.

This is the first time Malthus got caught. He's normally adept at keeping himself invisible. This works in his favor as the most powerful being in the universe pays him no attention, but he's not to be ignored.

Malthus マルサス

His talents include getting into places he shouldn't and especially &d8 defea.. u&98%^..can't..999##!

There are many more characters with rich backgrounds interwoven throughout the story that make Omni Link an epic tale.

This is where I tell you what percentage of the money goes to what. That's easy! 100% of it goes to Omni Link project. You don't need a pie chart to tell you that.

So where are we headed?

The stretch goals are exactly what's needed to make a successful Manga. To put an exact amount on what is needed is unrealistic. Rest assured, stretch goals are meant to enhance the project.

ユニバーサルマンガコンテスト
ユニバーサルマンガコンテスト

With your help, our Manga will enter "Jump's Universal Manga Contest". One of the prizes include serialization in Shonen Jump (Print or Digital).

Stretch funds go towards:

Vocal Talent 声優
Vocal Talent 声優

If you watched the video, you heard one of the theme songs (Pretend to Love). I'd like for all our music originals to be sung in Japanese 日本語.

What you get: When I accomplish this, all those that pledged enough to get the English versions of the songs will get the Japanese versions too.

Localization  ローカリゼーション
Localization ローカリゼーション

If it's going to find a fan base, we will need an authentic translation. I'd like to find the right people to get that done.

What you get: When I accomplish this, all those that pledged to get a copy of the manga will get a localized version too. ーカライズされたバージョンを提供します"

Scenes シーン
Scenes シーン

Full page spreads of exciting story moments will add variety to the manga, but take more effort to produce.

What you get: All of us will get more great art in the Manga itself.

Representation 代表
Representation 代表

Perhaps the most important goal is getting an agent for when Omni Link is presented to studios and clients. Moving forward with convincing content and proper representation.

What you get: We are all winners should the manga be excepted by a studio to help with print. That would be great!

 OMNI LINK - THE GAME

The game story has similarities, but is also different in many ways. *I wrote a completely new script for the Manga. Still, if you don't want spoilers, don't play the game for now. It will release fully this year and right now it's on Steam with about 5 hours of playtime available. http://store.steampowered.com/app/529100/Omni_Link/

Risks and challenges

Your probably wondering, can we complete our project? If you want to read Omni Link as a manga, or play Omni Link as a game... the answer is absolutely yes! And it will be completed this year.

We are well on our way to delivering a terrific product.The art is refined and the story gets more polished everyday.

Potential challenges are nearly eliminated with a successful campaign. That is the point. Delays will happen if a studio, publisher, or investor picks up our work. We may be at the mercy of their timeline. But if that happens, everyone will be better for it.

    This is a great opportunity to immortalize yourself in our manga. We will place you in issue #1, #2, or #3... depending on where you fit best. That way you can do something more relevant than just seeing your head in the background. We will work with you early on to get your character ready for when that happens.

    Your made up character name will have to be approved, but If you decide to use your real name and it's cool... that should be easy.

    Of course, you get all the other reward tiers and our eternal gratitude.
