I just thought I would post about this to gauge some interest, since it's something a little bit different.
At the moment I am using Ace Attorney Online to create a visual novel-style Edgeworth dating sim, using, of course, elements from Ace Attorney (investigation, presenting, conversations, having a court record etc.). I am basing this on a Japanese dream-novel style fanfiction (Google "Yume Shousetsu" - don't want to lengthen this out by explaining it here!) I came across last year and thoroughly enjoyed. I was originally just making it for fun/to practise my translation, but I thought there might be others who would enjoy it, so I contacted the original author to ask if she would be happy with me officially translating, adapting and releasing it. She gave me the go-ahead, so long as I give credit to her for the original story, and make it clear that the translation and adaptation is my own work, and she has had no input in it. As such, the original site with the fanfiction is here: http://id25.fm-p.jp/423/yumeizuru/
The game will be based on the first two Mitsurugi (Edgeworth) stories, as they are two parts of the same series. It basically focuses on the relationship between Edgeworth and the female protagonist, whom he is training to become a prosecutor, gradually developing feelings for each other. I should also mention that there's no sexual content, and it should be suitable for ages 13+. It is also entirely linear, as it is based on a fanfic - but there are interactive elements where, for example, what is in the original story a conversation, I have added in the opportunity to present evidence, examine the background etc., for some fun conversations I have written/will write myself.
At the moment I have more or less completed 12/15 chapters for the original part 1 (about 2500 frames at the moment) - I would like to gauge what kind of interest there would be in this project, as I know it's pretty niche, and very much female-oriented, so I honestly have no idea what kind of response to expect.
Here's a very quick teaser of something I've done for it:
Please let me know if you would be interested in this, or any comments or questions you may have! I am also looking for playtesters, so please let me know if you'd like to be one.
This game will be using the following custom sprites:https://imgur.com/a/g6cht
