"Love x Lust", a choice-based RPG/Visual Novel game about confessing your love and save the world from the lust!
Engine: RPG Maker VX Ace
*(The reason I used this engine is simple enough. It's because of the knowledge and an experience with it. It also has some abilities to utilize what I need that I don't know how to do it in Ren'Py, TyranoBuilder or other engines. And I'm too bothered to study all of them. I personally don't like programming that much anyways.)
One day, an angel named Luvi appeared before a boy named Gris and told him he is a "Tag Puller", the one who can save this world from the lust-spreading machine, Xesor. Gris needs to find his true love and retrieve the "Vanilla Tag" from her and use it to stop the machine before it plunged humanity down into the lust.
But, things aren't so easy with an intervention from Luzi, a demon who want to spread the lust throughout the world. And Afylos, a mysterious scientist whose goal is to use Xesor machine to erase the sexual hormones and reproduction system in order to achieve "true love" he believed in. Can Gris and Luvi be able to save the world and stop those enemies? Find out in the journey ahead!
*Noted: It is not a direct H-games but it does contains some elements relating to sexual things.

- Visual novel storytelling style. This game will use mostly texts and pictures. No controllable sprites and tilesets.
- Collecting various Tags in the "Tag Pulling" conversation!! Choosing the best choices to persuade the "Tag Holders" and pull their tags in the "Zone"!
- Dating Simulation System! Strengthen your relationship with 1 of 3 girls until she falls in love with you! Try interacting with her by talking, giving things, dating and a lot more!
- Time System! Choosing what you are going to do in your day! Each actions you choose will consume your time differently.
1. Types of "Tag" - There are two ways to define the types.
- By "Name" : There are "Blank Tag" and "Named Tag".
> "Blank Tag" are the mass-produced version of an incomplete "Named Tag". It can increase one's attraction and lust to a certain level. But, it is not as specific and strong as the "Named Tag". The "Tag Pulling" will be a lot more easier in this case. It might be identical to a normal battle in most RPG games.
> "Named Tag"are the tags with a specific name on it, which defined what power it holds. There is only one "Named Tag" for each name. It is similar to the boss battle in RPG games.
You can use the "Blank Tag" to give the "Named Tag"'s power in order to recharge its power in order to use the Tag Skill. Each "Named Tag" consumes different amount of "Blank Tag". It can also be used to upgrade the "Named Tag" and "Act" effects or acquire some new "Act".
- By "Category" : The Tags have three categories.
> Chara(Beige); defining character, appearance or personality, such as Tsundere, Loli etc.
> Act(Black): defining actions or feelings, such as Vanilla, Blackmail etc.
> Object(Brown): defining objects or body parts, such as Stockings, Armpit etc.
"Blank Tags" (Grey) can technically be any or none of these categories, maybe just one or even mixed up.

2. "Tag Pulling" and "Conversation" - In order to collect the Tag, you will have a conversation with a "Tag Holder" within a special area called the "Zone". There are three types of main actions to choose.
- Act : Interacting by using various kinds of action. There are two default sub actions.
> Listen : Listen or wait for the other without acting anything. > Talk : Tell something or ask some questions.
*There will be more additional actions.
- Inventory : Using whatever inside your own bag.
> Items : Use various items to help you in a Tag Pulling, such as . > Tags : Activate their various helpful skills, such as reading the holder's mind, viewing some part of a message log etc.
- Pull Tag : Pull out the tag to end the "Tag Pulling" conversation. There are 6 levels show as a percentage for the success rate. 0%, 10%, 25%, 50%, 75% and 100%. It can be changed depends on your actions. If you failed to pull it, it will be a game over.
There are also a "Negative Levels" for the main character which show as the same with the tags pulling levels. It increases if you choose the wrong choices or acting recklessly. If it reaches 100%, it will also be a game over.

"Named Tags Pulling" will be harder and longer than "Blank Tags" ones. And the "Named Tags Holder" also wields special skills such as timed choice, QTEs, button-mashing, scrolling choices etc.
3. Time System & Interactions
*Bedroom picture by Chocolate Berry *Kitchen picture by BASS (All of these are just placeholders.)
There will be Sun.-Mon. cycles and each days will feature different events. There will be an options for you to choose what to do and where to go in each days. Each actions will consume different "Time Slots". There are 6 slots in total, 5 for morning to evening and 1 for night. But, you have to spend 2-3 slots in the school during weekday. You can also save your progress in your house.
You only have 49 days or 7 weeks (Not yet decided) in order to get the "Vanilla Tag". If you failed, it will lead to a Bad End. Also, you can tell Luvi anytime after you get the Tag or just waiting until it reaches the last day as it will promptly lead to the Xesor machine's event.
4. Raising an affection and Confessing
*Character by Elzee (Placeholder)
Since your primary goal is to find true love and collect the Vanilla Tag, you will need to raise an affection towards the 1 out of 3 girls you want with a 10 points head start. An affections can be increased or decreased depends on your actions in each an amount of 5-15. But it may require multiple actions or time, e.g. giving a flower 5 times for a 5 affection (so, it's like each flower give 1).
You can raise any other people's affections as well but most of them won't be higher than 50 with an exception of the girls. You can't raise affection over 75 with more than one girl or else it will lead to a Bad End. There will also be a special event in every 25 you achieved for every possible characters.
You can check everyone's affection level from asking Luvi. It won't consume any time slot so feel free to ask!
*Character by Elzee (Placeholder) *School picture by BASS (Placeholder)
You can confess anytime once you have reached 25% or more affection level. Your success rate will depends on your affection level range. For 25-49 = 1/8 , 50-75 = 1/4 , 76-99 = 1/2 and 100 = 3/4. But, when reaching 100 affections, there will be one last special events which will guarantee the succession. And there's a 50% chance that the girl will come confessing to you by herself, which is basically 100% succession if you accepted her!
