Smile Avan Story - An Anime-Style Adventure Game


Avan Story is an adventure game with anime graphics and interactive gameplay. Made by anigu, a small game developer team, the game promises fun experience for anime-manga lovers.

Story
Daniel Standhope, a businessman from England who is put into the planet Ikai after a certain incident. In order to return to his home, he has to find out about the secret of this world, winning beautiful girls' hearts and much more. All while trying to survive the dread of monsters and magical beings.

Gameplay
During the course of the game, players will encounter puzzles and events which will decide the outcomes of battles and how the story will advance.

Making choices during battle:



Avan story is not a stereotype game where the main hero has tremendous power. He is just a normal businessman! So, in order to survive, players will need to understand the habits and weaknesses of any monster they encounter. And they will have options to make choices during battles to put those understandings into practice.

Clues from environment:






Players can freely explore the Avan town at the beginning of the game. And they can interact with various kinds of things on the trip to unlock an event or to solve a confusing puzzle. Some characters will not share their true feelings unless players show them something...


Sample images:





Avan Story is still under development. However, we at anigu are expecting to release the game within this year.

*WEEKLY UPDATES*


Introducing Liz Dawez:



This chubby lady is a respectable teacher at Avan town.
Liz is also the only volunteer caretaker of Miru and Rune while other folks avoid them.

Are you an indie team? The game looks pretty good with the graphics. Also, I hope to see more gameplay images from you.

So this is a point-and-click adventure/VN hybrid like Pheonix Wright: Ace Attorney? Looks promising. The art is quite nice for an indie game.

Yes, Avan Story is an indie work. As for the gameplay, you can see more on our website in the graphics section.

Haha, I'm glad you asked. There will be about 4 female characters you can meet during the game. But their presence, especially their relationship with the main character in the game will not be like what you would usually see in other visual novels. So there will be surprise for you to look forward to!

The overall idea for Avan Story's gameplay is a combination between regular visual novels and interactive elements that won't make the player feel bored during hours of reading. So that's why you may feel this is similar to Phoenix Wright.

We really put emphasis on the art so you may want to check out the website as more can be found there.

Well, I looked at your site. I can see your idea for this game and it's quite interesting, make it looks more fun as a visual novel.

But maybe you should elaborate more on the story? I saw a whale-like animal (maybe not but that's what I thought) in one of the CG images on your site. If possible, how about revealing a bit on that?

For an indie game, it already looks quite good actually. Will there be a demo for this sometime?

That whale is actually one of the key factors that will trigger an important event in the game.
Also, more information on the story will be revealed in the future so I think you will need to wait for some time.

Thank you for your compliment, they are great motivation for us! As for a demo, there are already talks within the devs regarding that. We might release one once the game is almost finished.

Looks very pretty, but I have absolutely zero interest unless there's a female protagonist/yuri option.

I have to say this really looks interesting. Especially like the idea of choices during the battles. Choosing where to attack and the story changing accordingly.

And of course the girls revealed definitely look cute which never hurts .

Good luck and looking forward to this.

Well, if you want we may consider it but don't count on it, ok?

I'm glad you like the idea as we focus a lot on the battles in the game. Also, the girls revealed are not all of them yet so there should be more characters introduced in the future.

Oh that's great. I actually am expecting a lot more from you guys. There's just not that many indie game developers around who use the kind of art style you guys are employing.
