Re: Because We're Here - Act I [GxB] [War] [History-ish] [Steam] [Commercial]

Oh, thank you both so much! It's wonderful to hear that you each enjoyed it! I don't have much more to say, but it feels rude to leave nice comments like that hanging, and I really do appreciate what you've written. :D Oh, and Potouto - just to clarify, that first choice in Act I is not something I'...

Re: Because We're Here - Act I [GxB] [War] [History-ish] [Steam] [Commercial]

Hah, 'naive' is an understatement! Yes, as Zelan said, that attitude has popped up a few times across history, but it was a particularly notable part of WW1's outbreak. And the first half-hour of BWH sort of reflects that. I think you'd appreciate the rest of August's development across Act I. :) Bu...

Thank you for saying so! I hope you enjoy it, if you do decide to play 'as it unfolds' haha. :D

(Update: Act I is now available on Itch.io! Have edited the top post accordingly~)

Re: Because We're Here - Act I [GxB] [War] [History-ish] [Steam] [Commercial]

Thank you all for the interest!! And no worries, waiting until they're all out is understandable. There are going to be four acts in total! For Act II, I'm aiming for late this year - but it might be early next year. I can't give an estimate for the final act just yet, but it's incredibly likely to ...

Because We're Here - Act I [GxB] [War] [History-ish] [Steam] [Commercial]

oJOj4qNK5aw Because We’re Here ~Mohnblume und Blauerose~ is a story-driven otome dating sim in an unforgiving First World War-inspired conflict. It's an episodic visual novel in four acts. There was a demo out with the Greenlight campaign a few years ago, but it was very very rough around the edges...

Re: Because We're Here [UPDATED DEMO RELEASED] [GxB] [War]

Hello! Me again. I've been rather neglecting this thread in terms of updates (sorry!) but just thought I'd drop by to say Because We're Here 's still getting on well. There's been a LOT of improvements since the first demo - the resolution, backgrounds, GUIs, dialogue - and I've edited the original ...

Re: Programmer for Hire!

Would definitely recommend DragoonHP for coding help! I commissioned his assistance for some of the more-involved menu screens in my game - he programmed them in EXTREMELY promptly, and was more than willing to clarify and to make revisions afterwards. He also went against his preferred way of codin...

Sorry for the late replies here! Was very busy, then took a bit of time off after the game got Greenlit (huzzah!). Anyway! As to these posts... MitsuIsh: I don't know what to say! Apologies, it seems the game isn't your cup of tea - it was always a danger that people would be turned off by the devel...

Re: Because We're Here [DEMO RELEASED] [GxB] [War] [Dark Com

Thanks so much for your kind words! It's really gratifying to see people enjoy it who weren't sure if they would, and who know about the history that inspired it, respectively. And it's nice to get such good feedback on the writing (and the, um, 'plot developments' near the end of the demo)... I'm g...

Re: Because We're Here [GxB] [War] [Dark Comedy] [Historical

Hahaha, you have beaten me to the 'demo released' announcement! Congratulations on finding it. I only had a small release in the first place because there was still a couple of errors (mostly Mac-based) but they're fixed now, so... a couple of announcements! http://40.media.tumblr.com/a17d295d09a800...

Re: Game not Running on Mac (but ONLY when downloaded...)

Oh! Yes!! That's it. Had unzipped to delete the .rpy files, but have realised that can be done while it's still zipped. Thank you so much!

Game not Running on Mac (but ONLY when downloaded...)

Hi! Quick question - my game isn't running on Mac, and I have absoutely no idea why. I have Windows, but I've been playing around with it on a Mac to get to the bottom of this... The interesting thing is that when I physically transfer the .rar to Mac using a memory stick, the game runs absolutely f...

Re: Because We're Here [GxB] [War] [Dark Comedy] [Historical

Haha, I did umm and ahh a lot before deciding to go with 'alternate WW1' in my descriptions - I'm aware that it's not technically 'alternate history' so much as 'a fictionalised version of history' or, as you say, 'historically-inspired fantasy', but 'alternate First World War' was roughly the only ...

Re: Because We're Here [GxB] [War] [Dark Comedy] [Historical

Thanks for all the replies! Lots of food for thought here. I'll go through some of the points raised: gekiganwing: Hah, worry not, I've got rather a professional outlook on the game. I've made games before, and I know how to avoid vapourware traps; everything's strictly timetabled, and the Kickstart...
