There She Is!!

A cooperative-romantic tabletop adventure for 1 - 4 players



About There She Is!!

There She Is!! (Korean: 떳다 그녀!!) is a Flash cartoon series produced by a three-person team and hosted on the Korean website SamBakZa. The cartoons became particularly popular during the spring of 2004 when they were exposed to American and European audiences.

The plot of the series is the romance between an anthropomorphic bunny and cat, in a world where such relationships are taboo. At the 2004 Anima Mundi animation festival in Brazil, this video won first place in both the Web Animation - Professional Jury and Web Animation - Audience divisions, as well as winning the Special Award Anima Mundi Web

Today all five episodes remain in the top 20 of Newground's Best of All time with the original 'There She Is!!' holding the first-place position.


Watch the series (5 episodes, around 4 minutes each) in amalloc's youtube channel:
Step #1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-uqnKQwwcJo
Step #2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q_ZUhJ33X80
Step #3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5tUMeQrUXro
Step #4: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B362vS6ivrM
Step #5: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a3m-WwoBv-o


The Game

"Zambakza" and "iN'sanity Games?" are joining efforts to develop a high quality tabletop game based on the animation series.

There She Is!! will be a cooperative game for 1 to 4 players, where you need to achieve several requirements in order to advance from one "Step" (Episode) to the next for a total of 5 "Steps"

Mechanics: Hand and Resource Management
Using a comunal deck of cards, the players will have to achieve different goals, collecting a bunch of positive hearts (name pending), and avoiding negative hearths (Name Pending)




Players will play cards to get Positive cards, those cards are going to trigger an event card from the event deck. There will be a event deck for each step. Each event must be resolved before going to the next step. To resolve the events you should decide with the other players who has the best card to accomplish the requirements of the event, but you can't show nor say anything about the cards in your hand to the other players.

Events are all about the animation series story.
Player cards are a handful of objects and abilities from the different characters you can find in the animation series too.

We are thinking about adding a "currency" too (tentative).


We'll be updating the process here on this post, if you have any ideas or advice you are more than welcome to post your opinions!

Thanks in advance!

Characters

Doki: Doki (도키, cf. Korean word tokki 토끼 "rabbit") is a female rabbit who is madly in love with Nabi and considers everyone to be her friends. Although very loving and cheerful, she is somewhat obsessive and willing to go to extremes to get what she wants. She has a habit of befriending animals and putting green ribbons, similar to that of Nabi's, around their necks or tails. Her Facebook account states that her surname is tokki and that she is catholic.

Nabi: Nabi (나비, cf. Korean word goyang'i 고양이, "kitty") is a male cat as well as Doki's love interest in the story. He is reluctant to return Doki's love at first, finding her antics annoying and fearing the social repercussions, but grows to tolerate and eventually reciprocate it. His Facebook account states that his surname is goyang'i and that he is catholic. He wears a green scarf and seems to have some skill in martial arts. In Step 3 it is shown that he works as a paperboy. Nabi translates to "butterfly", and is a common name for a pet cat in South Korea.

Jjintta Set: The Jjintta Set (찐따 세트 Jjintta Seteu, translating as "Moron Set") is a gang of three roughneck, shaggy male rabbits. They three are brothers. They appear as minor antagonists in the second episode, but slowly develop a friendship with Nabi. Their members include:

Il-ho (일호, "Number One"), the leader of the group, and also firstborn. He has a rather fierce rivalry with Nabi and is extremely protective of Doki. In episode 2 He misunderstands that Nabi was forcing her in a relationship, but realizes otherwise later. It is unclear what motivates his behavior, but common theories are that he has an unrequited crush on her, or that he considers himself a rival of Nabi since episode 2, when this one pushed him and dodged his attack. In episode 5, He gives Nabi a ticket to "Paradise" albeit reluctantly.
Yi-ho (이호 Iho, "Number Two"), who wears an eye patch and has a crush on the keyboardist, Pi. The second eldest brother.
Sam-ho (삼호, "Number Three"), who wears a medical mask and appears to be less coordinated than the other members of the gang. The youngest brother.
Band: While the website's profile does not give any information about them, they are present in Step 2. The band consists of Pi, a female cat keyboardist; and a male rabbit guitarist named Moon

Red Eyes: A tall male bunny wearing sun glasses, and artist. He was originally created as an antagonist.

Hana: Hana (하나, translating as "One" or common name in Korea.) is a female cat, and the apparent owner of the band. She is shown to be very kind, especially towards Doki and Nabi, and has a loving trust in her bodyguard, Pizza.

Pizza: Pizza (피짜, Pijja) is a large male cat, and Hana's bodyguard. He has a noticeable scar over his right eye, but its origin is unknown.

Gray Rabbit: Gray Rabbit (회색 토끼 Hoisaek Tokki, literally Gray Rabbit) is a large male rabbit who is in love with Hana. He is often depicted holding a bouquet of flowers. Works as an electrical engineer.

Components:

1 deck of events cards per "Step" (Chapter)

1 communal deck of objects

1 communal deck of skills and solutions

5 Step Cards (or Step cardboard with the requirements to go through the 5 steps) 3 different difficulties.

"Pro" Hearth tokens

Defeat all levels by meeting all their requirements


Requirements:

A determined number of high "Pro" and low "Anti" hearts

A lot of cooperative decision making.

Hi!. We are planing a Crowdfunding campaing for the next year.

We need this also! It's actually a dream of mine. I've been following this animation for years! And know we've got the chance to make this dream come true!
We are gonna give it our all!
A PnP for beta testers might be a good idea

Do you have any ideas or advice to share?

"Won" might be the better choice. "Dong" is a slang term for penis.

Oh! you are right! lol
And Won is Korean's actual coin.

Another option is that, instead of all those coin tokens, certain cards can help you getting the items.

For example, Nabi works as a "Paper Boy"
This way "Working" can be an abilities to afford items


As we have two kind of tokens already "Pro's and Anti's) this last option could be better I think, What do you think? Which do you thing is the best option?

Re: [WIP] There She Is!! (떳다 그녀!!) / The High rated animation becomes a Tabletop!
Quick update

I would like to ask some questions that might help us with the process.
Thanks in advance for the answers.


1_ Did you know "There She Is" before these post?, if yes: since when?

2_ How can we increase replayability in this game?

3_ Do you like the mechanics? do you have any advice?

4_ Do you like the art and characters?

Thanks again!

1)I've known about the series since I saw the first step way back in 2007

2)For me, having some volitility in the game would help. (some unforseen elements that just come by and wreck havoc on the players) That's the reason why the 3 Matt Leacock co-op games are still being heavily played to this very day instead of fading away with time.

3)Mechanics sound fine on paper, at the very least.

4)I'm a sucker for cute and/or charming art, so I'm perfectly fine with the art if it follows the flash animations. Granted, I don't like Sheriff of Nottingham's art and Adventure Time's art took some time to get used to for me.

Yeah, the series are awesome!, we want to make a game that meets that awesomeness!

We are thinking of a lot of spin offs and events players must solve, and will change every game

We are developing and improving the mechanics with some playtesting, is looking really good so far.

Art will be made by the Sambakza team, so no worries about that, it will follow the animation!

Thanks a lot for your answers!

Hello again!

We have good news!

Everything is going smoothly, and we've got a lot of ideas that we are adjusting to start the alpha testing and balancing.

Also, as the artwork is an essential part of a good game, we've got for you to watch some samples of what our Illustrator for this project(Reislet) can do!

Check it out!

1. Nope.
2. Replayability is usually dependent upon depth of material or decision making. In this case, it sounds like a greater variety of events might be needed. For co-op games where you play against the 'board' (or whatever you play against), you have to ensure that the game isn't easily solveable by just one technique. Providing an ability to play 1 against everyone else might mitigate that, if that's a concern.
3. The mechanics that I see on this page so far are very sketchy. I think it will be very important to make clear what communication is acceptable while still keeping the game fun. Right now it almost just sounds like co-operative set collection.
4. The original art looks very charming and simple. The artist samples are adorable and extremely highly shadowed and glowy. They seem very dissimilar, though both cute. I have a preference towards the original art.

Thanks a lot for your advice! We really appreciate it.
Yeah, is sketchy, we are testing some stuff already, we'll update pretty soon! we'll improve both replayability and mechanics


what do you think about this art? (It's what we are aiming for)

Borrowed from: http://centchi.deviantart.com/

I would love to read your opinion on this one, thanks in advance!

Re: [WIP] There She Is!! (떳다 그녀!!) / The High rated animation becomes a Tabletop!
Shadows feel too soft, making it feel less cartoon-like and more 3D plastic. Lining is good, or could be the teensiest smidge heavier, if it's going to be card-sized art. Expressions and feel of the original characters, as someone comparing two examples, seems quite good.

Thanks alot for the the advice!
Our Illustrator is working on the first sketches, we might upload some pretty soon. The last image is just an idea borrowed of an artist from devianart, but is close to what we want to do.

Thanks again! We really appreciate it. I'll copy + paste your advice our Illustrator

If it's borrowed from DeviantArt, you probably should list attribution. (It's a funny point, since you're also owner of the IP. Wonder how that works out. Still it'd be a courtesy.)
