What male protagonist for dating sim?

Post by highcliffe » Thu Sep 03, 2015 12:55 pm

Hi,

I am developing a dating sim to be published by Winter Wolves and me and the artist were wondering which protagonist (look) you would prefer:

What do you think?

Thank you.

I think the body of the first one is more realistic. I don't know, the abs just seem more like normal abs rather than anything else. But he looks kinda odd in glasses.

the left one look like a typical VN protagonist, the right one look a lot better, so I say the right one.

Thank you!

The character is rather a bit introverted, so realistically it should probably be the left one. However I was thinking whether the left one is sexy enough? Or is that something you not really care about for the playable character (and more/only for the romance-able chars)?

I can't judge on the sexiness, but sometimes sexy comes off better when they aren't purposefully trying? If he's introverted the first image is probably better, the second image doesn't look introverted at all, but more like a really confident guy.

Well, I know a lot of people doesn't look like how they act, myself included, I looked introverted in the past but people said that I was extraverted, another time in my life it was the contrary , and other time my look match what people think of me.

and personnaly I care about the look of the PC , what is better than a sexy romance option, two...euh a sexy romance option with a sexy PC... :lol: :( :cry: .

seriously...if you ask which protagonist I want in a VN I will choose the one I like the most so in general the least "ukish".

is it the game with a train that jack tease on twitter a few day ago?

That´s what I think too.

I think we go with the first one, but try different glasses.

This was just a sketch. The final pic will be colored.
