Re: Zen: A Gay Sequel [BxB][School/Slice of Life/Dating][18+][Demo Available]

I just realized I forgot to copy May's status update here, which actually isn't too big of a loss because not much happened. (It was a bad month as far as the day job goes, and the world also seemed to get even more depressing, somehow.) As always, you can contact me on twitter , by PM here, or on t...

Re: Zen: A Gay Sequel [BxB][School/Slice of Life/Dating][18+][Demo Available]

It's the end of April, and I want to write an update post at the end of every month while the game is in active development. All updates of course apply only to the full version of the game (not the demo). As always, you can contact me on twitter , by PM here, or on the ZAGS community . Announcement...

Re: Zen: A Gay Sequel [BxB][School/Slice of Life/Dating][18+][Demo]

You're not wrong, but right now I just worry because I can't find it... :lol: It just makes it weird to be able to view it at some times but not at others. (And yeah, I'd probably just decompile it anyway; it's how I got Adam in YAGS...) And yeah, accessible from the menu makes the most sense, if t...

Re: Zen: A Gay Sequel [BxB][School/Slice of Life/Dating][18+][Demo]

I haven't finished it yet, but I was wondering if it's possible to access the stat screen at any time other than the weekly plan session? It is not possible at the moment, but it's something I've been contemplating adding to the full game. I'm a little worried it could cause action paralysis (you s...

Re: BaraJam 2019 - It's Back!

A bit belated, but the jam was a huge success this year! We ended up with 20 games (19 of which are free to play), and actually had some games that weren't Visual Novels: There's an adventure game, some RPGs, and a couple of action/clicker games in addition to all of the story-based goodness of VNs....

Re: BaraJam 2019 - It's Back!

Friendly reminder that the jam is now (approximately) half over!

We already have three great submitted games, and there's still plenty of time for you to join up.

Re: Charles 2.0 [Nanoreno 2019][BxB][Mystery]

Nice words and thoughts Thank you for the detailed writeup! Yeah, this was intended to be a very different kind of game from my usual thing, with a bit of strategy in terms of questions and answers that you only start to understand after a time or so through. So I'm glad you found that part interes...

Re: Charles 2.0 [Nanoreno 2019][BxB][Mystery]

I'm having a hard time getting the second and last endings, as well as the last CG. I've replayed quite a few times, but what can I say, I don't have the talent to be a convincing politician, I guess. OTL Maybe I'll just wait for a Let's Play or walkthrough. Thanks for the comments! I'm glad you en...

Charles 2.0 [Nanoreno 2019][BxB][Mystery]

https://i.imgur.com/burR11H.jpg Wolfscade and I ( Bob ) have finished and released our game for Nanoreno 2019! Charles 2.0 is a bit of a departure from my usual romance/dating fare. Play as the President of the United States... except you have no memory of who you are. Talk to the press and interac...

Re: Yearning: A Gay Story [BxB][School/Slice of Life/Coming Out][16+]

I have a couple of thoughts about board games. Firstly, the idea of a board game inside a video game is not new and quite good. Secondly, in this case, this is not a board game at all, because we have only a couple of options in situations that are predetermined by the plot. Thirdly, I almost never...
