THN posted a topic in Off-TopicNEWSREEL 1: All stretch goals funded! You can still pledge via PayPal. NEWSREEL: 2: Official Victory Belles community forumcreated. Dear TSF Pilots, As you may know, Victory Belles' KickStarter ends in 39 hours (Sat May 21, 5:00 CEST) It's a WWII Strategy/Dating Sim game. With more than 120waifus. And it's already funded (285% so far). I'm sure you've heard about Kantai, Kancolle,etc. But since they don't want to export its game to the West... Here's Victory Belles! As you can see, the artwork is gorgeous, and the historical and technical data are very well researched. Also, while the shipgirls are stunning, there's not so much fanservice as one would expect, and each one has a truly unique personality. Do you want some proof? Ok, let's read this funnyinterview with my own Spanish shipgirl... Velasco! Can you feel her cheerful enthusiasm? Of course you can! She's my daughter! The first stretch goal is already achieved: Construction Gals! Chibi girls that work on your R&D projects. Like Elsie, the cute brunette with the glasses. I'm so in love with her. The second stretch goal is closer every minute: Mascots! Boost your fleet's morale with adorable dogs and cats like Scouse here... And, in case you're wondering, yes, I wrote parody songs for this game! (7 so far.) I'll make a playlist later. (Note to self: I must make The Letter playlist too! 54 songs so far...) Remember, if you like what you see... You know what to do! EDIT: Here's my Parody Songs' Playlist. If you like my songs, you can sing along! 1. Velasco (Montana). What better song to introduce my own shipgirl? 2. Hold that snake (Ry Cooder). 3. Love is in the air (John Paul Young). 4. BONUS TRACK: What a wonderful world (Sam Cooke). Game funded! 5. COLLECTOR'S EDITION ONLY RELEASE: Carrie (Europe). I wrote 3 Europe songs on the same day: one for VB, one for Quantum Suicide and one for The Letter. (And The Letter one was a SoulSet crossover, too!) 6. BONUS TRACK:That girl (Christopher Cross). Construction gals stretch goal funded! And Elsie character song.This is canon. 7. No retreat, no surrender (Paul Gilreath). The unavoidable training montage from the 80s. And Velasco character song! 8. BONUS TRACK:I got my mind set on you (George Harrison). Mascots stretch goal funded! 9. Not ready to make nice (Dixie Chicks). 10. Sweetest Victory (Touch). Campaign ends, all stretch goals funded in the last minute! 11. Best of the Best (Stubblefield & Hall). Admiral Graf Spee character song!
So. Since a lot have been opening threads here and there, Ithought I should make one too. And since we are moe military fans, I'm sure there are a few teitokus among us, besides me(I noticed a Tatsuta vs Tenryuu gif signature somewhere). So, any fans here? Be it teitokus or simply lovers of the idea. For newcomers to Kantai Collection, it's a webnavigator"card" game based on... Random. Which is kinda frustrating and not much of a gameplay. BUT, the team you use is composed of manifestation of WWII boats in human form. Moe boats? Moe boats. I love the idea and the designs. It's kinda interesting to see how they would make an object "human-like" (if we talk about Vocaloid songs, Hayabusa is an excellent one, lyrics being the Spacecraft Hayabusa compared to someone making a long journey. And she sings her thoughts. That was touching). Aaaand damn those designs are kinda nice, not being too much mechas like Strike Witches(which I should have loved, but tI don't like the designs), using the boat parts as armaments, and keeping an unique enough look for each ship class. (I wonder if this should be a joint-thread with Arpeggio... Well, maybe not a good idea, both are quite different) Anyway. What I love most though, is the fanbase, like Touhou Project. And by that I mean the fans making stuff. Fanarts, but also stories. There are really good doujins, some trying to explain logically the mechanics, some using the ship's past (sinking, or losing fellows boats/comrades, reacting the battles with the girls), or playing with our emotions. Damn, those feels sometimes when you read good stuff(or see a shipgirl dying in a fanmanga; they love to make it emotionnal). Thetre are also really, really funny stories based on what they inteerpret from the shipgirls' quotes and apparent personnality. If anybody's interested, I could share some doujins posted on danooru pools and such.
