Hey guys, what's up!
This past winter I posted an outline for a genderbent reverse harem Madoka Magica visual novel to LiveJournal Madoka Magica community. The response was overwhelmingly positive and I decided to make my idea a reality. Our "team" currently consists of myself as writer/programmer/project lead, suikka and khibz on character art and color respectively, and sakurarin on backgrounds/misc. graphics.
I'm also new to the whole voice acting production game so if someone wants to come on board to help me in that respect, I'd be more than open to the notion. Email me with your qualifications.
It should be noted that I'm only trying to finish the equivalent of the first episode of the anime series at the moment. Whether or not I make the "full" game is up in the air.
You can follow development at our Tumblr!
Otome★Magica tells the story of Madoka Kaname, an ordinary 14-year old girl who finds herself in the center of an ancient conflict between demons that would destroy the world and the young magi who oppose them.
