Do you think Monogatari series would make a good video game?
What would it be like? A Telltale-style adventure game? An open-city roaming game where you solve various incidents?
And yeah, I know it has a minigame-fest PSP game, let's ignore that,
No, but I have a game design inspired by the series, including a new way of doing dialogue in a game that I think is the most innovative thing ever.
Unfortunately, the higher ups see no value in it and think its too risky, so I can't get it made. I am going to move to Japan and try to get work at Platinum or Kojima productions and see if the Japanese industry is more open to my ideas. I have a decade of experience in the industry, so I should be able to get the job. The question is if they will take the risk on my idea. Very different from the norm. Not a typical sort of game, but very open ended and free form.
Like the character creation is the player filling out a college application and describing themselves for example- and you become a student in a town that has a lot of urban legends. Turns out many of them are true.
The flow of gameplay is interacting with the residents, exploring the town, and solving problems. Not exactly something people want to dump an open world budget into.
Please tell me that is from a hentai where that dude has one huge group sex with all those girls?
>A Telltale-style adventure game?
There's already a visual novel.
>An open-city roaming game where you solve various incidents?
I'd rather a
Nasuversegame like that to be honest. I like Monogatari but I can't see much vidya potential in it.
>a town that has a lot of urban legends. Turns out many of them are true.
Somewhat classical setup for Japanese adventure games. For example Yuuyami Doori Tankentai.
There are some groupsex doujins, yeah.
>There's already a visual novel.
What are you refering to? That PSP game?
yes, I think it would be a great set up for an open world modern style adventure game.
All open world and adventure games give you only two things to do: collect shit, and kill shit. I want to add variety to that by making the dialogues and interactions more dynamic (and not in the shitty bioware way) and by making the world filled with mysteries and super natural shit to figure out.

Anon are you serious
Half the reason the series works is because of the spastic way SHAFT directs it. I don't think you could replicate that in a video game. Araragi always loses the actual fights he gets in, so I'm not sure what the gameplay would be like. Dragging your broken body away from the latest monster girl trying to kill you simulator?
>no LA drama adaptation yet
I guess it'll happen after Kizu
yep, EA is fucking soul crushing, fuck them. I already have the preparations, I am going to japan next summer, wish me luck.
Yeah, the idea is to make an open world game that has that surreal shinbo style to it.
>Dragging your broken body away from the latest monster girl trying to kill you simulator?
Romantic survival horror?
You are now aware that pic related is the Void from Downpour.
What is Monogatari like, anyways? It looks like something similar to Amagani at first glance.
I can speak JLPT4 right now. I need to teach english for at least a year to get a Visa, so I will spend a couple years doing that and learning moon in my downtime. I could use a break from game dev for a few years anyway.
The cycle can be grueling.
I think for it to be a good video game it should focus on being a good anime first, though I guess Naruto has shown that's not completely necessary.
It doesn't follow the same omnibus format like Amagami.
It mainly build around wordplay, supernatural and in the anime adaptation it has somewhat nonstandard shot composition and direction.
Mainly the arcs are about the hero solving problems for one of the girls, at least in the first few arcs, then it gets more complicated.
The proper watching order is the release order, meaning Bakemonogatari -> Nisemonogatari -> Nekomonogatari Black -> Monogatari Second Season (several arcs aired together) -> Hanamonogarari. Also, new arc, Tsukimonogatari, will air soon.It's also important to get the BD releases, as they're enchanced and uncensored. For example Coalgirls has the BDs for all arc.
I'd just say you should give Bakemonogatari a try and see for yourself.
