Title: Pearl Fey ~ Ace Attorney
PyWright Project Headed by IsaOfTheWorlds
Spoiler: Contributors--Spriters
Double KO
TripleSlice

Spoiler: Contributors--Co-Writers
TripleSlice



Setting:
Pearl Fey ~ Ace Attorney takes place in Japanifornia Elementary School not long after the events of Trials and Tribulations. Pearl Fey has decided she wished to be sent to attend the 3rd grade here, with much support from the members of the Wright and Co. Law Office and of the Fey clan. Her intent is to learn about the world beyond Khurain during long stagnancies in the Wright and Co. Law Office's workhaul, and as a fun means to relax from the stressful case at Hazakura Temple.

However, during her stress-relief time at the Japnifornia Elementary School, Pearl finds that drama materializes in grade school just as murders do elsewhere: convoluted and melodramatic. In order to quell the "he-said-she-said"s and the pointing of fingers, Pearl founded the first Japanifornian Elementary School Court with the intent of solving these Wright-sized cases born of kiddie drama.

Spoiler: Characters -- Clarka Kentwood
Clarka Kentwood is the victim of Turnabout Heroine and assistant to Pearl throughout Pearl Fey ~ Ace Attorney, and is a 9 year old 3rd grader and peer to Pearl. Clarka Kentwood is a zealous fan of the recent brand of lawyer-themed superheroes, the Seekers of Hope. Clarka Kentwood firmly believes herself a member of the Seekers of Hope, named Lady Truth. She is notably smug and confident in her demeanor, often tossing around lingo common for the characters in the The Seekers of Hope comics, a notable mixture of super-hero and lawyer quips. She and Vandal form a duality that play on cliches present in superhero v supervillain conflicts, but also tropes present heavily in Ace Attorney's lawyer v prosecutor conflicts.

Name: "Clarka" is a feminine corruption of "Clark". "Kentwood" is a corruption of the surname "Kent." Clark Kent is the secret identity of DC superhero "Superman," fitting with Clarka's belief that she is, herself, a superhero.

Spoiler: Characters -- Shamus Flatfoot
Shamus Flatfoot is a Hall Monitor, occupying the "detective" role for Pearl Fey ~ Ace Attorney, and is an 11 year old 5th grader. Shamus Flatfoot is, in his role, self-important and subtly condescending. He willingly adopts the persona of Golden Age detectives such as Sherlock Holmes, always with a peppermint pipe in his mouth, and going so far as to reference aforementioned detectives in the form of misquotes riddled with malapropisms and mondegreens.

Name: Shamus Flatfoot follows a naming trend set by detective Dick Gumshoe from the official Ace Attorney games in that his given and surnames are both synonymous with "detective."

Spoiler: Characters--Fantine Payne
Fantine Payne is exclusively the prosecutor of Turnabout Heroine. She is the awkward, self-conscious granddaughter of Winston Payne, who attempts to mask her insecurities by emulating the demeanor of her proud prosecutor grandfather -- with much notable deliberation.

Spoiler: Characters--Vandal Fisk
Vandal Fisk is the primary prosecutor of Pearl Fey ~ Ace Attorney, taking Fantine Payne's place post-Turnabout Heroine.
Vandal Fisk claims himself a "harbinger of despair" for the Japanifornian Elementary School Court, sent under orders by the Federation of Despair to oppose Pearl and Clarka. Vandal Fisk, similarly to Clarka Kentwood, is melodramatic in his demeanor, but he's also comically evil. He plays on comic book supervillain cliches as well as tropes heavily present in corrupt prosecutors in the Ace Attorney series. He and Clarka form a duality that play on cliches present in superhero v supervillain conflicts, but also tropes present heavily in Ace Attorney's lawyer v prosecutor conflicts.

Spoiler: Case 1 ~ Turnabout Heroine:
Defense Attorney: Pearl Fey
Prosecutor: Fantine Payne
Victim: Clarka Kentwood (and the Seekers of Hope)
Defendant: Lexi Litha

Clarka Kentwood is the only present victim of Turnabout Heroine, with the others -- the Seekers of Hope -- stuck atop the roof of the school, a supposed "impossible location" for anyone who could've done it. She was hesitant to allow Pearl to act as Lexi Litha's defense attorney. She instead intended to personally confront Lexi Litha, whom Clarka accused of the crime, declaring her a member of the "Federation of Despair", a fictional super-villain group standing opposite to the lawyer-themed super-hero group Clarka fancied herself part of. Clarka eventually conceded to wait until after the trial.

The crime was the "kidnapping of the Seekers of Hope", or rather... the larcening of Clarka Kentwood's Seeker of Hope action figures and their placement upon the top of the school, overlooking the entire playground, clad totally in babydoll garments. Clarka concedes that she's been a victim of bullying due to her boyish nature, but it only got worse when she was caught with the Seekers of Truth. She claims that the ringleader of the bullying is Lexi Litha, "convoy of the Federation of Despair", and that she has used her "mighty powers of mind-control to turn the Court of the World against her and the Seekers of Hope."

Current Progress:
Planning: 70% (Case 1)
Spriting: 5%
Miscellaneous Visuals: 0%
Coding: 0%


Help Wanted!!!
Co-Writer(s) - Often acting as convoys of hindsight, pointing out holes in my currently planned narrative, case or logistic/psychological flaws in particular segments' reasoning. Also to help present and flesh out ideas.

Comedians!(s) -- Subset of the Co-Writers, Comedians are here to interject Ace Attorney's staple humor into Pearl Fey ~ Ace Attorney. Being the type of game it is, it goes without saying that it needs all of the humor it can get! This can take the form of adding random word-play, puns or jokes where they feel its needed, scripting the wrong-evidence dialogue and filling out in-development characters who may seem too plain or too normal with Ace Attorney's iconic zany character quirks.

Spriter(s)/Miscellaneous Artist(s) - People well-inclined artistically who can design the backgrounds, foregrounds, character sprites, case photos and the like.

Optional!!!
Music Track Composers -- People potentially capable of composing unique variations of iconic Ace Attorney tracks such as the Cross-Examination themes, the Pursuit theme and the like as well as potentially providing miscellaneous extra tracks if needed.

Hi! I'm also working on an Ace Attorney fangame called Wright and Justice: Ace Attorneys - Capital Offense.
I know a YouTuber named Broocevelt who makes custom AA music. Just ask him for permission to use his music and he'll let you. He let me, too.
Also, if you need any voice actors for characters who are guys around 14-16, I can do that. :athena:

I can beta test and make art (though it's traditional only, so I can do character designs but no digital art). I have attempted spritework a few times, but not sure if they'll be good.

For music, I'd also recommend Broocevelt. He's a fantastic composer.

As for the core concept, it's so adorably brilliant that I'm thrilled to see how this turns out.

To clarify, you're fully capable of designing the characters, but actually doing the sprites for them is a no-go? That may actually be quite helpful. As soon as I can find some more assistance with the artistic aspect of this project and I'm sure Pearl Fey ~ Ace Attorney will be able to pick up, I'd like to speak more with you.

Thank you for the recommendation! I'll certainly look into him.

I, too, am in some anticipation as to what'll come of this, as I'm not quite sure where I'm going with the story yet. I'm considering giving the overarching narrative some additional depth that juxtaposes with the light-hearted comedic premise in nature, though I'm not sure how to do that without compromising the child-like simplicity of the game. Unfortunately, as I'm not artistically inclined, I can't say I'm quite sure if I'll be able to, in time, get well endowed with even Frankenspriting, so until I can get some assistance on the artistic aspect of the game, I may not be able to pick the project up any time soon. If you know any willing and able to help, I'd appreciate it very much if you could point them in my direction.

No, I can make sprites. My experience in traditional art has facilitated my learning of sprite art, but I've only started spriting about a few months ago. I just can't do stuff like CGs. I can PM you some sprites I've made in the past if you want. Also, I think I can provide voice clips for young girls like Pearl if you need.

I can help with writing and comedy. Like the name of the prosecutor. I feel you can do better than Brianna. Not many people would get it. (Heck I don't get it...) Fantine Payne now THAT is perfect for a female Payne. Fantine as in Faint in. She could even have a breakdown where she faints dramatically. Also just to tell you how much better Fantine is, Fantine means "childish" while Brianna means "she is strong".

The pun is actually "bring on the pain". However, I can easily say that "Fantine" for "faint in pain" is majorly more fitting, considering it fits with the theme for reacting to pain set by Winston Payne (wince in pain) and Gaspen Payne (gasp in pain). I honestly like "Fantine" so much better.

Also, if you want to contribute as a Co-Writer and Comedian, please DM me your Discord information (or please make a Discord and send me the information all the same). TripleSlice had the idea to organize information being sent between each of the contributors and me in a real-time environment, rather than the hard-to-do-consistently e-mail-esque format of Court-Record's PM's, in a Discord server dedicated to this game. I'll add you post-haste, as soon as I can.

And there would be the motivation I need to make Pearl Fey ~ Ace Attorney as great as it can be: the watchful gaze of a famous fancase maker.

Anyway, glad to see you here. Hope you aren't disappointed in the final product.

Hey there! This sounds really cool and I would love to help out. I can be a co-writer and/or comedian if you'd like, since that's what I'm best at.
