About

Andrea Bruni. I’m the creator of General Practitionerand The Coroner Saga, (hello!) and I’ll be doing all the lead artwork, story overview, and art directing, plus the programming part of the project. This is the third game I release on Steam and the second "big project".

... and another one

Laura "sasquatchii" Henderson is our super talented graphic designer and she will take care of every aspect regarding user interface and graphic. You can see many works of Laura in Visual Novels out there as she's simply amazing!

Sasquatchii's amazing User Interface

Gabriele "Grufo" De Agostini will be my alpha tester. His ideas on developing the game will greatly enhance the game's fun side as he's one of the nerdiest, dedicated people I know. 

A demo of the game is available! It shows you the different gameplay, situations and story as you choose to be a Human or any other species and you play as a Command Officer or a Science Officer.

We are looking to create an Adult Visual Novel with RPG elements based on a new Intellectual Property. 

This game will put you into the shoes of a space officer on a fictional future organization called Yomi Alliance, from the name of the planet where peace talkings between the four main inhabitants of this region of the galaxy were made after decades of petty disputes over territory and resources.

Unlike other games the story will change completely based on your own species and job, making it different every time you play the game. You can discover more about what happened in that space station they attacked, or why a missing zoologist was kidnapped and tortured, if you'll ever be able to save her!

RPG elements include a Stat system and a Skill Tree which points will be made up in the first part of the game, where your character will attend classes, train hard and become more and more trained to face every odd the game will pose.

 You can learn more by visiting the official website www.yomialliance.com

Stats and Skill Tree in the game
  • Attend Yomi Academy: a game-within-the-game experience which will prepare your character with all the skills he/she/shem needs to survive in the outer space!
  • A 70+ hours long Visual Novel with RPG elements with an everchanging story based on your choices and actions!
  • An adult plot featuring space exploration, social conflict, politics, love and betrayal.
  • Choose a specialization from a range of 7 and a job from over 21 different choices
  • Every different job activates different events during missions and situations, meaning you can replay the game dozens of times to discover something new in the story, gameplay or interactions with other characters.
  • Choose your character's species from 4 different ones, and choose the gender as well. Introducing an hermafrodit species in the game, people will react to you differently and even the romance options you'll be getting will play differently. 
  • Explore 4 different romance options with each character having her own agenda and personality. 
  • Adult scenes are featured in the game with all kinds of romantic partners. Adult scenes can be completely removed in the Settings menu.
  • Full-HD graphics with special user interfaces designed by our talented, awesome graphics designer Sasquatchii.
  • Interactive consoles and cinematics.
  • Monthly story updates which will keep you stick to your screen for hours!

What about you? Which school will you attend? 

  •  Command School (choose to become a Commander, Representative, Manager, Navigator or Hot Shot Pilot)
  •  Engineering School (choose to become a Mechanic, Specialist, Starship Designer or System Specialist)
  •  Operations School (choose to become a Basic Operator or an Operations Manager)
  •  Security School (choose to become a Security Officer, Investigator or Tactical Officer)
  •  Counseling School (choose to become a Interspecies Relationship Expert or a Psychologist)
  •  Medical School (choose to become an Alien Specialist, an Emergency Medic or a Doctor)
  •  Science School (choose to become an Astrometrics, Science, Social Surveyor or Planetary Surveyor Officer)

Each school means different stories in the game! 

One of the first missions in the game will be to reply to a distress call from an orbital station which was attacked by unknown assailants. If you play as a Navigator you will be tasked to navigate between the hazards of the region, or maybe escape or intercept an hostile vessel. If you play as a Security Officer you might be tasked to join a boarding party to secure the station, while if you play as a Doctor you might be tasked to deal with survivors and injured people... And every career path will have their own story in each mission!

Every different job will feature its own gameplay design, as of using consoles, interfacing with the computer or interviewing prisoners. It's all up to your choice and you can play the game dozens of times to have a different side of the story to unfold!

But the game is not only about missions and work, your character will be chosen amongst FOUR different species and two genders (one species is a mixed gender hermafrodit as well!). 

Here are some examples of the game's graphics (taken in-game).

YOMI ALLIANCE KICKSTARTER TREATS

First of all, you get my love and unwavering loyalty, WHICH IS PRICELESS, REALLY. But I also have a bunch of awesome treats for everyone who supports the Kickstarter!

As always, THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

I hope to have the game done by Q4 2020 / Q1 2021

While it might seem a long period of time, a project this scope has a ton of hard work that will go into the game and I really want to deliver an awesome experience to you! Still, as a backer you will receive access to Alphas and Betas of the game as soon as they're ready so you can pass the time between updates!

Your feedback is the most important thing here. No, really.
Yomi Allianceis our third game of many planned ones, its success is incredibly important to us! Without the love and feedback from our community, this is something we would not be able to achieve. We will do our best to communicate with you to ensure that you are as satisfied as possible. We want to be an indie studio you can rely on. We’re all about fun and innovation, and we want you to be a part of it!

You'll also be involved in the creative process for the game!

Risks and challenges

Creating a visual novel is a BIG project and there can always be delays - either we make a mistake with a scene and need different artwork or need to rework the user interface - whichever it is, we hope to go into this as prepared as possible to avoid such instances, but I understand they are not always predictable.

Thankfully, the game will be a digital product, so it will be much easier to deliver but delays and technical difficulties are the biggest risks and challenges we face at the moment.

Also, the game is very BIG by design, having different stories based on your job choice and different conversations which apply to the race/gender of your choosing, but our own experience with General Practitioner is going to help us to sort out the most obvious mistakes and deliver a very funny and entertaining experience!
