Actually...it really could work. After reading this I thought of the Anime Afro Samurai. The Samurai has a Ninja friend...who is not real. Though the Samurai is very much so stoic and 'bad ass' the Ninja is a joker and makes observations of things, and in essence notices things that the Samurai does and 'doesn't' Notice.Merlyn_LeRoy wrote:"schizophrenia most commonly manifests itself as auditory hallucinations, paranoid or bizarre delusions, or disorganized speech and thinking, and it is accompanied by significant social or occupational dysfunction. The onset of symptoms typically occurs in young adulthood." I'd vote for auditory hallucinations (hearing voices), which I think is a common type. The voices could be a weird counterpoint to the MC's thoughts and feelings.Harlequin13 wrote:A character with actual schizophrenia that you PLAY AS... Now that would be something weird to try and write. The inner monologue of a schizofrenic, yea.
This would actually be a pretty good gameplay wise and make it different from KS in that the protagonist would have a 'buddy' along with his own observations. It adds alot more creativity in what you can do fer certain scenes and character growth (H-scenes come to mind, since the protag would want some alone time from some 'one' he's basically attached to all the time and is always with )
