[Looking for Group] With our powers combined... Otakings! [Garage Sales] (53)

1 Name: Otaprince : 2007-08-26 15:37 ID:J9PB4R1s

This board has a lot of hikki's, shut ins, and otaku with too much time on their hands, right? Well, why haven't we organized more properly? With the combined strengths and talents of people with limitless time, why haven't we produced anything worthwhile? Sure, a lot of NEETs don't have the motivation to take their talents to the level of professionalism, but I'm sure there are some who would be able to help in an organized anonymous-created game or short film. After a couple practice runs, small groups could form un-anonymously and actually sell their products. In this way, hikki's could take over the (otaku) world!!

ITT ideas for projects.

ambitious hikikomori are oxymoronic.

...There's not much I can really contribute to something like a game or homemade anime, but I can sing really well. I've sung for recitals in English, Latin, German, Italian, and Japanese. I only speak English and broken Japanese, though... (^^);; If someone ends up making something, I can sing an opening theme or something! Of course, someone would still have to synth the background music... (^^);;

Please also learn, inadvertantly or otherwise, how to not bump a thread by using the sageru or "sage" function. It would be greatly appreciated.

>>6 I didn't think it was important since I'd posted a post I wanted to "age" five seconds earlier. It was already at the top, asshole. But here, I'll conform to your super-elitest ways. SAGE IN EVERY FEILD.

8 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2007-08-29 14:46 ID:KPe8fcV1

Age, because I like the idea of 4-ch coming together to make something. An album would be cool (I think DQN Electronics sort of did this already, actually. I don't know how many of those people were actually 4-ch people though). Or a bunch of short stories. Or something.


9 Name: TS : 2007-08-29 23:25 ID:7+iZqSPx

i support this idea. though i'm not sure what i could contribute atm

I hear it's popular to create an RPG Maker game.

11 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2007-08-30 14:14 ID:2dzC5AqN

What we really need is something cohesive to tie whatever project we work on together. What do we have in common? We are 4-ch. What is it to be 4-ch?

2channel has lots of videos, songs, game mods, etc out there because they have an identity. VIPPERs are proud of their community. If we can't represent ourselves as a community, that means our identity as a community isn't strong enough.

Tell me then, what does it mean to be a member of 4-ch? What is our history, where are we now, and where are we going? Even 4chan has this vision of themselves as the "protectors of all that is win and destroyers of all that is faggotry on the internet". What are we?

umm, mittens?

13 Name: meimaggie : 2007-08-31 02:48 ID:cmc+x7Fq

How about combing efforts on some sort of story idea? I have an interest in writing so I would be for it, unless someone comes up with a better idea.

14 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2007-08-31 20:39 ID:Heaven


I'm sorry, your MITTENS! are in another castle.

If only ...

15 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2007-09-04 13:27 ID:ner2Qw9b

I'm up for the following:
RPG maker game.
Writing music (lyrics).
Writing short stories (possibly about the lives of 4-ch goers?)
Um... All tree at once?
I think a CD would be really cool, myself. Any other thoughts on this?

16 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2007-09-04 17:29 ID:Tg/J+NxS

what about just masturbating furiously?!?!?!?!

17 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2007-09-05 08:31 ID:p28goBNb

I think the CD thing would be the best. We have a lot of musicians here, so it shouldn't be that hard.

Writing lyrics and singing is easy for me. If we could only find one or multiple people to come up with backing tracks and another to mix and master the final products...

Hikikomori self help book made by hikikomoris.

>>18 I like this idea.

20 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2007-09-16 11:46 ID:BKnq2H6c

yeah brilliant! so we can all together become non-hikkis and leave this shitty thread and dump this stupid idea

21 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2007-09-16 13:18 ID:yBIrwdMx

>>16 I like this idea.

22 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2007-09-17 13:31 ID:tSZ+JX+1

I'm for the RPG Maker game. I have a lot of experience with the program, about three years worth. I know my way around it pretty well. What about a hikki magazine-like site? Like where you can post music, short stories, or even games relating to or from hikkis? That would be interesting.

23 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2007-09-17 16:39 ID:VWQUe6Ss

>>22 The problem is 90% of hikkis don't have motivation for anything besides fapping to loli, watching animu, or playing vidya games.

And distribute it through torrents.

26 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2007-10-24 22:14 ID:GFd0K0lx


Maybe this idea would give them something else to do? It could even be the first step to recovery!

27 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2007-10-26 04:36 ID:bBsctnbZ

Great idea.
Also great idea. Creative Commons license?

I guarantee you that if we stop telling ourselves that and allow ourselves to get into the project, motivation will build.

28 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2008-01-08 22:57 ID:Heaven

Not true. It's been weeks since I scared up the motivation to play vidya games.

29 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2008-04-02 16:24 ID:96+0v614

sir this is the third time you have proven that you are in the wrong section of the 4-ch bbs

31 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2008-04-07 08:57 ID:WCUZtm8x

I like this idea.

Anyway I am avaliable almost 24/7 (not avaliable between the hours of 2am-11am) if any projects are starting I'd probably be willing to help.

32 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2008-04-08 05:30 ID:DzrYP3aF

let's make (1) a game that (2) features a hikkikomori that people can relate to "learn from" and that (3) also contains music and voice acting.

33 Name: sage : 2008-04-08 05:30 ID:Heaven

should be relate to and "learn from"

34 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2008-04-10 20:43 ID:z1cBtU9Z

Although I have no programming knowledge, I want in on this! I'm a former-hikki, and I still have far too much time on my hands. Let's get something started!

35 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2008-04-12 13:28 ID:qUN3Dxph

I'd enjoy trying to contribute with visual art for this possible game, but I'm afraid most people in this thread likely have already left 4-ch in favor of real life.

36 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2008-04-14 20:59 ID:4ryCF2zz

I think the game should be about Grandpa and Junior.

37 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2008-04-15 21:45 ID:sOnwlz+h

>>36 Seconded.

38 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2008-04-18 06:42 ID:8OK59cq5

No. I'm still here.

39 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2008-05-01 12:27 ID:ZIpYJQdL


Really? That's probably just myth. I bet most shut-in types are itching to do something, anything, WHATEVER, to make up for their reclusiveness and social ineptitude. It's called being able to entertain yourself, and long-term shutins/hikkis/whatever have to be pretty good at finding diverse ways of entertaining themselves within their comfort zone, if they can stay recluses for as long as they do. The less creative are the ones that get bored shitless, develop nasty neurosis problems and eventually are forced to spew their sickness in the outside world.

Would be good if 4ch were to do their own ambitious SMW hack or something like that. Be as overly creative as 2ch-ers are.

40 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2008-05-03 17:17 ID:8OK59cq5

Does anyone actually want to do something or are we just going to talk about it some more?

41 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2008-05-03 18:51 ID:69WwIS2z

What can we do to start working together?

42 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2008-05-03 19:13 ID:Heaven

Let's make a visual novel.

43 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2008-05-03 20:52 ID:69WwIS2z

Sure, using one of those tools like Blade Engine or Ren'Py?

45 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2008-05-04 13:43 ID:8OK59cq5

Do we have any artist here willing to lend a hand?

46 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2008-05-04 16:30 ID:m7NaMGZJ

Example of what I can do:


I'm sure there's much room for improvement.

But shouldn't we be getting writers first of all?

47 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2008-05-04 22:40 ID:DzrYP3aF

Writing is easy, and if nothing else we could always team-wiki write.

First of all, we need to decide on which concept we're going with.

>let's make (1) a game that (2) features a hikkikomori that people can relate to "learn from" and that (3) also contains music and voice acting.
>I think the game should be about Grandpa and Junior.

The first idea was mine, so I would probably do more to support it, but if anyone else has any other ideas, we might come up with something better.

General plan of attack:

  1. Come up with a good concept, that can by contributed to by people with various talents, and that we can come up with a lot of material for.
  2. Brainstorm/elaborate on this concept. i.e. figure out events we want to have, characters, plot pieces, etc.
  3. Start a wiki. This way we can keep track of character stats/profiles, and easily flesh out concepts. Eventually, we could finish writing a route of a story. (If we go with the hikki idea, I'm thinking we can have multiple characters to play as, and a route for each.)
  4. Somewhat after the start of 3. we can start with character designs and trying to find a game engine that fits our needs.
  5. After we finish with say, one route we can start making the music and illustrations to fit this route. This step will probably be the longest.
  6. ???
  7. Profit.

48 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2008-05-04 23:19 ID:8QGxqXsz

I think starting with the reclusion theme gives more freedom and more to work with. At the same time we could put in all kinds of references to DQN characters and other icons of 4-ch culture.

>If we go with the hikki idea, I'm thinking we can have multiple characters to play as, and a route for each.

..hivemind D:

It would also be awesome having their stories somehow overlap at times.

49 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2008-05-07 05:36 ID:8OK59cq5

I feel the hikikomori idea is overdone but I think it would be nice to do it from a Western point of view. Everytime it's been done it's been from a Japanese point of view and we are (probably) not Japanese.

so, nobody else interested, or have anything to say?

I'm good at drinking milk too.

53 Name: Anonymous Enthusiast : 2008-05-25 18:01 ID:klW+Wfz+

I'm very interested but we've already threw in a few ideas but are we going to act on it?
