After a bout of depression and deciding to write a fangame that's less PG-rated, I thought of this:
Athena Cykes: Ace Attorney - Locks on the Heart
Image
Case DLC is currently being made for AAO (Game Jam deadline has been cancelled for personal reasons), but the full game will only be released on PyWright.

Spoiler: Setting - Spoilers for Cases 2-5
After the events of Spirit of Justice, a serial murderer known as the Executioner resurfaces. The Executioner has been on the Federal Bureau of Investigation's radar for several years, and has managed to avoid capture, despite the high number of victims they have killed. Athena Cykes, a not-so-rookie lawyer, takes on the case, having been involved with the Executioner previously, but has no idea what she's getting herself into. Will Athena be able to safely figure out who the Executioner is and make sure they get the punishment they deserve... or will she unknowingly find herself in a life-or-death scenario?

HELP WANTED:
Co-Writer(s)/Editor(s): I currently have two co-writers right now, but the more, the better, since nobody's perfect. I have typed scripts on Google Docs, and would like any co-writers to leave comments on the docs for moments that don't make sense, feel out of character, etc.
Comedian(s): Although this is a dark game, I still intend for there to be funny moments in the game. Anyone that has mastered the style of classic AA comedy fits for the job.
Spriter(s)/Misc. Artist(s): I have absolutely no artistic skills whatsoever, and need someone to create sprites for any original characters I have, given my description of them and ideas for their various poses, and also someone to create backgrounds for the game. Said sprites and backgrounds should be in the classic DS style. I can pay a commission, or if you want to create art and publish it as stock art, that's fine with me too. Whichever works for you.

Our current team:
Composers: MBr (SuperCykes), FanFreak247, and iKiwed!
Co-Editors: clcman, FanFreak247, and Ropfa!
Artists: Ropfa, Puchi, and iKiwed!
Betatesters: Spybreak001, Egor, Super legenda, and Ropfa!

Thank you so much for reading. If you're interested in helping out or just want to join the Discord server for "Locks on the Heart", here you go! https://discord.gg/TQPhTfF
Updates will now be posted in the Discord server, here on Court-Records, and on AAO --> http://aaonline.fr/forum/viewtopic.php? ... 20#p767720

I’m interested in being a composer for your project. So you want DS-sounding music?

I also have over 3 years of roleplaying experience with Athena, so I can help with writing.

If you're going by the English version of Ace Attorney, then the term you're looking for is the FBI. If you're going by the Japanese version, then it's the Public Security Intelligence Agency.

Oh. Yeah, I know that. I just don't know if I can use the FBI in it, so I made up another acronym.

I'm always down for new fangames, and I wish you the best of luck. I do suggest at least trying to make some custom sprites on your own. It's much better to make the attempt than to wait for a sprite artist willing to do all your art, which is a rarity on here.

Quick update: I already have someone working as a composer, so I don't need anyone else for music.
For the art: I've been told to not hold back on stock sprites, and I definitely want to use some. The thing is, some scenarios in the game require sprites, and none of the stock sprites I found would work. Same goes for backgrounds. If anyone is willing to make sprites and backgrounds without a commission, that would be amazing (but unlikely), but otherwise, I'll probably end up commissioning someone. Still, if you're willing to make some sprites and backgrounds and release them as stock sprites/backgrounds (or whatever works), I'd be down!
I still do need another co-writer - someone who can help with AA funnies and keeping canon characters, well, in-character.
Everything else is going well! Case 2 is 75% planned (still polishing up some bits) and I'm almost finished with the first few parts of the script.
So if anyone can offer help, please do so!

New update:
Case 2 planning is 100% done. Writing is almost done, since my rough draft is completed, but I still have to figure out some logic errors and such, hence why an extra co-writer or two would be much appreciated. I currently have two co-writers/editors (Spybreak001 and clcman), and one composer (MBr, I don't need any more composers since we're working together). I've contacted Hesseldahl asking if they'd be willing to do art for a commission or to publish it as stock, and I haven't gotten a response yet, but any artists willing to help are welcomed. :)

Just a comment that Armen is indeed still working on this. We've been in talks for me doing some sprite commissions. He's putting a good amount of effort into it!

*Ropfa seal of approval here*

Co-Editors: clcman, FanFreak247, and Ropfa!
Artists: Ropfa, Sandal (Puchi), and iKiwed!

Of course, if you'd like to help out, feel free! Any and all help is appreciated and useful.
