I hope there aren't any troll cameos.
Not that I dislike them or anything; but I'd like to see if Hussie can make something and it gets support without connections to Homestuck.
>> No. 72499
He was reasonably popular before Homestuck ever started, with Problem Sleuth. And has even older comics that are popular, like How to Embarass a Duck, and Team Special Olympics.

But yeah, I'd prefer if there weren't any Homestuck in this. And I suspect that'll be the case.
>> No. 72500
This is a game whose main draw is its roster of Namco mascots. I wouldn't be surprised to see at least some Home stuck references.
>> No. 72501
Strangely enough, one of the things I find oddest about this is that I'm pretty sure quite a number of Namco characters shouldn't need to go to high school. Especially Hiromi Tegenji, whose game is all about getting through a military academy.

While I'm talking about a Namco game that happens to compile a collection of characters, I'd like to note that I didn't have an original Playstation, and thus never had my absurd fondness for virtual museums fully exploited. Just throwing that out there.
>> No. 72502
What a time to be alive.
>> No. 72503
Honestly, I don't think this is gonna be a game.
Shifty Look it's a webcomics site, not Bandai/Namco's flash games gallery.
Although maybe it will be a webcomic/date sim hybrid. We'll have to wait.

Also, in before Tekken.

They're already making a game, actually.

Oh duh, MS Paint ADVENTURES.
It'll probably be branching story paths with multiple decisions.
Kind of a browser based visual novel.
which thinking about it Homestuck kinda is already...

The way they described it certainly made it sound like it was an in-browser game, leveraging HTML 5 as the "active" portion of it.

Here's the first bit of concept art they showed at their Comic-Con panel. If I recall correctly, these are either protagonist concept designs or just designs for overall direction. Either way, the panelists had a fun time pairing up the six designs with each other.

In addition to the fifteen dateable Namco characters, Namco High will also include three dateable Homestuck characters as well. They announced the first of three being Terezi Pyrope.

Calling it now. Terezi, Karkat, and a human (probably Dave)

I could imagine some people being put off by this, considering Homestuck's, uh, mixed reputation.

Terezi, Dave, Clubs Deuce

There, a rep from 3 of the 4 races of Homestuck
>> No. 73243
Nah if we're doing a rep of races, it's more likely to be Calliope/Caliborn. It'd be really interesting if they went a dangnabbit romper route and had them be alternate personalities of the same person
>> No. 73244
4? You seem to have forgotten about leprechauns.
>> No. 73245
I'm thinking Terezi, PM, and an alligator.

Also, it looks like we aren't seeing past version of characters, so no >tfw Toby Masuyo finds out how her relationship with Taizo Hori is going to turn out.
>> No. 73248
Nobody cares about those other races though. It will be the three most popular characters, or rather the two most popular guys plus Terezi, because the fandom is overwhelmingly male-character-hungry. Terezi just happens to be the most popular female troll.
>> No. 73250
Meenah is the most popular female troll.
>> No. 73251
As much as I wish that was true because I would love to digitally romance my favorite punky fish alien, I have to disagree. More fans know Terezi because more fans haven't even met Meenah yet. Terezi even beats out Vriska in terms of popularity despite the former's controversy.
>> No. 73252
I dunno. The way they phrased it was "weird exchange students" and there's already a few other humans on cast so I don't think that'd count as "weird".

I'm almost hoping for one of the characters to be Jack Noir because romancing a demon dog with space powers would be hilarious

Dave's gonna be one of them for certain. "Coolkid Pack" is a dead giveaway.
>> No. 73268
So third is either Meenah or Dirk? Who else is a popular cool kid?
>> No. 73269
While Dave is a pretty safe bet, come now, "coolkid" has been a general school term for decades, especially as a cliche when associated with letterman jackets. Remember, this is still a Namco game foremost. The Homestuck stuff is just a bonus.

No, I will continue to project my fantasies of dating a virtual Meenah until the inevitable moment when my hopes are dashed utterly and painfully.

As much as I like Equius and WV, I'm sensing a JUSTICE-based theme on these picks so I have a feeling the last might be...well pic related. I would be okay with this.

Though I would also be okay if the last pic was Spades Slick or Calliope/Caliborn combo

Could have been worse. Could have been better, but not by much.

Does anybody recall if Terezi has any feelings or even care for Davesprite?

They did chat once, right after Davesprite entered the alpha session. It was the first time Dave and Terezi really hit it off.

Very, very short game. Each character route takes around 15 minutes (if you're a slow reader like me). 15 bucks for the HS characters and the character art is....odd? The sizes of the sprites aren't the same so Jane looks like a hulking giant compared to most other characters.

Not worth the money imo

Eh, I liked the Lolo route.

That's the only one I've played so I can't comment on the rest of the game, but I did like that one.
>> No. 73361
did you enjoy having 0 gameplay?
>> No. 73362
That's called a dating sim. That is how they work. We knew when the title was first announced that there would be zero gameplay This is not a criticism that is likely to illicit any sympathy.
>> No. 73363
I wasn't expecting any more than this, but it's still really poor, just about as barebones as you can possibly get. There are 10 year old joke dating sims on Newgrounds that are better than this. There's no fucking dialogue options, for one. It takes like 15 minutes to finish one route, and the only thing you do to complete it is click the character's name enough times when that menu pops up. When I say there's 0 gameplay, I mean there's 0 gameplay even for visual novel standards. And that's sad.

It's not the fault of the writers or artists either, they did their best with what they were given, but the planning and direction is horrendous.
>> No. 73364
Except not really? Pretty much every other dating sim at least has dialogue options. If you say A you get B and so on. In this case it's just "mash enter forever"

Boh. I guess I was expecting something a bit better than this.

I was expecting a game that pokes a bit of fun of the dating sim genre like Hatoful Boyfriend but instead I got a boring "game" made by people who didn't really bother doing the research at what mechanics are usually in this type of game.

Also, I find it funny that the game advertises Cousin as your avatar, but it turns out that because of lack of dialogue choices, they have their own (obnoxious) distinct personality--which defeat the point of Cousin being you.

Oh well, I guess Namco is getting some people money who is willing to spend $15 to "woo" a meta & angsty bird boy.
>> No. 73366
Congratulations on the release of your game Hussie.

Now lets get back to Homestuck.
>> No. 73367
It was also advertised that the player character was completely gender neutral but Dave refers to them as male in his route. (:
>> No. 73409
That's because Davebird is privileged cis scum
