Honestly, options 2,3, and 4 all sound good to me :P

But I'm too busy to create 3 different games! Choose the one you like best. You can create the other two. :P

So a parody of the original game, set in modern times? I'll add it to the list.

I voted for the Quintessence comedic spinoff, but I still like the idea of a Reives cameo in it somewhere ;)

Sure. I also think it would be kind of fun to have cameos of the forum members as well, but just minor ones. Reives would play a larger role.

Hm. Seems everyone who's posted in this thread has voted. I'll keep the poll open for a day longer or so, but is there anyone who seriously dislikes the idea of a serious Quintessence spin-off?

I'm fine with serious... as long as it's not TOO serious :P

And you could have the classmates be forum members. That way they could be cameos without being intrusive, and you can kill two birds with one stone (finding classmate sprites, and cameos!)

Salory... -cuss- I can't find anything that feels suitable for her.
Here are a few...

The last one I like best, but even that doesn't feel right...

A possible Kaire the School Nurse...


Also, a few possible plot ideas. Most could probably be combined. Yay or nay?
Spoiler: show

-Kaire the school nurse, who the entire school loves, is terminally ill.
-Vikon is bullied by several no-lifers. Salory stands up for him. Vikon is now Salory's best friend.
-Lunair is a new student. She's seen as stuck-up, though, and probably for good reason.
-Eshe is a new chemistry teacher from Egypt.
-Serai is Reivier's clingy jealous girlfriend. She's also that girl who's likely to bake cookies for new neighbors, help a new person around, arrange retirement parties for teachers, etc. But she doesn't like Lunair, so she doesn't do that for her.
-Kardian is the school principal. He's...idk. Faced with two warring subordinates?


I'd love to hear some additional ideas from you guys.

I also like the last one for Sal. Kaire the nurse looks more like Kaire the maid.

Anyways, here's a slightly  more fleshed-out possibility. Anything I should add/remove/replace or should I scrap this version altogether?
And I'd just like to say, I really would like feedback on this. I -promise- I won't get offended if you say it sucks, because I'd rather hear that now than after I've spent time and effort on it.

Lunair is a new student at Quintessence High. She very quickly gets a reputation for being cold and stuck-up. Serai especially dislikes her after Lunair coldly resists her (admittedly lukewarm) attempts to be friendly. A full day passes, consisting of Math where she meets Vikon, P.E. with Salory where she gets injured and meets Kaire, Science where she meets Eshe, Lunch where she overhears people talking about her, Orchestra with Reivier where they discover they both like the classical song To Realize (making Reivier the first person to treat her with real warmth), Art with Serai, and...some other class I'm not sure of yet. In each class, there would be minigames/puzzles, etc.
-Afterschool, Lunair exits school and notices a commotion- a group of boys is harrassing Vikon. Salory defends him and scares the boys off. Salory notices Lunair watching her and yells at her. (Salory already dislikes Lunair by now, it should be noted). Lunair, slightly ashamed but more angry, walks away.
-The player is given freedom to explore the town. I'm thinking unlockable NPCs could be used. There could also be a timer so that the player can't explore indefinitely (maybe an hour is 15 minutes or so, and once it hits 10 she has to return home). The player doesn't have to explore, though: returning home and sleeping skips to the next day.
-Next day. The classes are the same, continuations of what occured the day before, with new minigames and situations and stuff.
-During Lunch, the principal (Kardian) makes an announcement- Kaire is terminally ill. This news is greeted with a flutter of worries, and students begin talking about what to do. Lunair overhears Salory, Serai, Reivier and Vikon talking about a bakesale, and offers to help. Salory and Serai ignore her, but after some hesitation, Reivier accepts on behalf of the group. They make plans to meet after school (at a sushi bar or cafe?), as lunch is about over.
-Rest of the school day passes as above.
-They meet together and discuss. A shopping minigame could possibly occur, followed by a cooking minigame at Serai's house. Possibly a little more player freedom afterwards.
-The next day is the weekend. The bake sale occurs in the afternoon, meanwhile, Lunair must post posters of the bake sale at as many establishments as possible, some of which will ask for favors in return. The player can also explore quite a bit more- other classmates are also doing stuff for Kaire and otherwise. -The bake sale occurs. After that...I'm really not sure how to end. :P Maybe it could be something happy where they're all at the park or whatever- the park could look like the Quintessence cliff.
-If Reives allows the use of the Quintessence OST, wouldn't it be a lot of fun to have a Drift music video, modernized?

My own opinion on this is that it's rather sappy. But hey, it's a short fan-game, sappy is allowed, yes? I'd -really- like feedback.

I don't know about everyone else, but I think it sounds good. I'm especially excited about the minigames and the limited exploration period. I say go for it. :)
