    Hi!

    We are pleased to announce that we are starting on a new game. It will be a fan-made erotic parody of a very famous universe. Below is the general premise...

    [​IMG]

    When you turned 18, you received a letter with an invitation to the Hogwarts University of Witchcraft and Wizardry, because magic is not for children.

    The main features are:

    - A campus life full of magic and events.

    - You can choose the gender of your character. i.e. You can play as either a male or a female student.

    - The player character will not be a canonical character from within the Harry Potter universe. However, the other characters will be, although they may be a bit "out of character".

    - It will be a sandbox game. Therefore, you can interact with any NPC 's and do whatever you want, but the NPC's themselves will interact with each other, or even with you. For example, don't be surprised if Professor Snape begins an affair with one of his students. Also, don't be surprised if this student happens to be male (we'll make it an option you can disable).

    - Your character will be able to improve his/her skills and spells to acquire new ways of interacting with others, and when I say "interact" I mean, basically, different lewd stuff. The main characters are not children, but students with their adult needs, especially if they happen to have magic at their disposal.

    - The player character will act according to your desires. So, he/she can be perverted, romantic, or both. It's up to you.

    - Hand drawn pictures made in the original style.

    - You can enroll in any of the houses. This will affect the quests and attitude of the other characters toward you.

    - We plan on adding at least two girls and two guys from each house to the game. Each of them will have personal events, quests, storylines, etc.

    - We will try to make animations in the game. We hope that we will make something more than blinking eyes )).

    - The game engine is RenPy. Nuff said.

    We plan on releasing a demo of "Wands and Witches" in October, after we release our current game's final version. Yes, we not only start making our games, but we also finish them. )))

    Our website is:

    There you can follow the news, or subscribe to be able to see the game progress and can influence at it development.

    @GCStudio Removed the patreon link and replaced it with the link you used when you asked me if you could post it.

    Eww no.
    What about the other genders?
    Original style of what? That boring, generic thumbnail you posts above?
    Wow original.
    And you're really pushing the envelope here.
    ((
    Why is this enough said? Why even mention the game engine? Why does that in any way matter to the player?
    It sounds like you haven't even begun developing the game which gives you 2.5 months to release a demo of no doubt dreadful quality. You would probably have been better served creating the demo first than time boxing yourself this hard.
    (((

    To be frank this looks and sounds overwhelmingly average at best and I doubt you'll find any takers on DLP, but good luck.

    OK, I'll go kill myself, as you want. We don't force anyone to wait for this game. Or play it.
    In fact, treat this as a fanfic in the form of a game.

    I'm pretty sure nobody said you should go kill yourself. If you can't take some criticism than don't even try to do anything in entertainment industry, you'll just want to kill yourself even more.

    A fanfic for sure, but a terrible one.

    It's a game. It depends on player actions if this will be a good or bad fanfic . The storyline will also depend on player actions. An example with Snape is just an example.

    So you chose the worst premise fanfic wise and are trying to sell it to Dark Lord Potter. Years after the fact where we're still known for our Ginny hate, and the love of anything Dark Lords (Not Tom Riddle Jr buttfucking).

    Keep away from the hyperbole. We don't usually allow for advertising on our forums, and you were warned as to the response you might get.

    Take the opportunity provided here and tell+show why DLP is wrong in our skepticism and critical feedback. If you ask for genuine feedback and ideas, DLP will generally be more than happy to help you and give it to you straight and to the point.

    But if you expect to drop a link and for DLP to go wild, well, you won't get that. You have to back it up. So far it's vaporware and a lot of very tough to deliver on promises in an extremely tight timeframe. You're asking for donations for a product without a solid plan or initial deliverable of any kind, and seemingly no prior history of being able to deliver on such a project.

    So yes, we're all skeptical. It's also just not really our cup of tea.

    Well, we already finish one game. We will finish one more in the near future. In fact, it is already almost finished. This is not our first game and we already have development experience. Naturally, we don't promise to finish the game in October - we promise to show a demo version.
    I'm very surprised by your reaction here. I would be glad to see objective feedback. Yes, I'm new on this forum. Perhaps that's why I don't understand this attitude to Snape, for example. Maybe it's some kind of local meme...
    All members of our team live in Russia and Ukraine. We have a strong Russian-speaking fanfiction community. Therefore, the game is focused mainly on it's memes. The game was conceived as a fanfic that the player could "write" by himself during the gameplay process. Of course, this will be within certain limits. But fans do it for fans.
    Also, you don't need to talk about sales here. Look at the amount of our fees on Patreon, and divide it into four team members. Believe me, we make games not for the sake of money. Although, I willn't hide that money motivates us too.

    Yes, not wanting to see a thirty-something teacher with questionable hygiene habits sleeping with underage students of his, is a local meme.

    All of student will be 18+. It's a university after all. Player character studied for the first year. Harry and company for the second year. As for hygiene - this will be a special quest.

    Honestly, this looks awful. Even looking at the other games you've developed...they sound terrible. A game where the whole point is to seduce your sister? What the actual fuck? I'm glad that you're not making games with the intention of getting rich, because you're barking up the wrong tree with Snape sex and sister fucking.

    I once fell into a rabbit hole of looking up Patreons and what makes for successful ones, and you'd be shocked (or maybe not) at how many there are for this type of thing (erotic games, especially with incest themes) that are apparently quite successful.

    I have no idea why he thought it would appeal to this community, though.

    Shocked by incest in VNs? Just look at this list of incest VNs available in English (and at how many of those are originally in English).

    Right? Let's look at a few cherrypicked examples:

    Fenoxo, who makes Corruption of Champions (more like lets others work on the shit he started the ball rolling on, from what I hear) which is basically the epitome of the furry fandom in all its terrible glory gets 31k.
    DarkCookie, who makes Summertime Saga, a dating sim where you fuck your mom, aunt, sister, teacher, best friend's mum, and a whole lot of other women (pending updates) with art so shit it looks like everyone's got Ebola and is 20+ years older than the story says they are, gets 16k.
    Lewdlab makes a 3D VN "game" where you fuck the usual of badly rendered mom, aunt, sisters, and some other bint IIRC, gets 15k.

    And those are in dollars per month, mind you. Sure, those are cherrypicked and Patreon takes its cut, but there are quite a few others that still get 6k a month for drawing some shitty art, writing a scenario the average FFN reader would turn his nose up for, and coding some really easy shit, if they don't have some highschool dropout do literally any of those for them instead. It's not like they quit their day job to do it, either.
