OK - updated game available:

(see first post)


============

I am updating my Skydrive. If you're looking for Romance Urban Second Edition, it's not available at this time. Just a short maintenance break. Thanks for your patience.

Basically, I provided the saved games I played, which is fine if you want to skip forward and backward, but it also contains my horrible scores, which at one point were all zero or negative !!

So, please either erase those games I saved along with it, or download a clean version. Thanks ! I'll let you know when it's re-upped completely.

And apologies for all the inconvenience and confusion.

Thank you ! I used Poser Pro 2014 from Smith Micro, and figures from DAZ3D. My cookbook for characters and their clothing, hair, etc are all declared in my notes at my blog.

Oh.... you like Noir ? Cool. He was a special limited-time character for Christmas 2012, created by Japanese group Dark Division. The special event was Angelic Christmas 2012. I don't think the item is available anymore....

Noir is no longer available as a character from the Dark Division website. He was a limited time special for the Michael 4 figure from Daz3D. Maybe you can ask the creators directly, but you have to communicate with them in Japanese.

Romance Urban 1st and 2nd Editions are in "play straight-through" format. They are not in "choose who you want to play with" format, so sorry.

Just roll along with the game-play and make your decisions when they pop up on the screen. Noir appears almost right through to the end of the story (so do all the guys), so you'll have lots of encounters with him, unless you choose a booby-trapped option....

Hint: points are also earned as certain parts of the story are passed, so it's not always about decision-making only.

Please enjoy. Noir says he'll like to play along with you inside the game. ( ^ ^)//

Okay I played through it, since I had time today, so why not? (And please excuse me if I sound harsh ><;;)
Anyways, it took me about 2 hours for the whole game.
I felt like the characters could have more movement/expression at times. I would have also liked it if Erika's face was shown, haha.

One thing I'm really confused about is that, I'm not even sure if I got a 'real' ending, with no actual sign of which guy I'm going to end with... @_@
(Are there any read endings where you end up with a guy? Because I got the "I'll keep searching for the one!" ending even though I had 100 affection with Snow, 80 with both Woonhyun & Yu, and like 75 for Falcon, etc.)
I get 1 early ending by making a bad choice, though.
Are there any more endings other than early (bad?) endings, and the one I mentioned in the spoiler tag?
I was hoping towards getting one of the guys I liked for an ending but I ended up getting almost all the guys at 80 affection...haha

So uh, yea. A few thoughts and questions I had on this!
Overall, it's pretty good! I loved all the side characters (the ninjas, the younger sister of Yu, etc, you get it lol xD)
I kinda disliked the music though, it was boring, which later got annoying to listen after, imo T__T.
But, I'll be replaying this a second time in hopes for a different ending, but focusing on one guy this time, instead of pleasing everyone! xD

Hi, ixWishing. Thanks for playing the game ! Glad you played through to the end, and thanks for your feedback.

Ah, just turn off the sound if the music gets annoying.... Heh heh.

I tried to keep it to the Japanese otome game style, in which the Heroine's face is not shown.

In these versions of the game, there are no alternative endings, as I've mentioned in an earlier post, so sorry. It's just how much the guys fall in love with the Heroine. Yes, it's quite a long story, so please save out the game and return to it another time.

I could have done the "lip-flap" expression movements, but I thought that since the characters are semi-realistic already, I'd better not turn this into a 3D animated game. I could have, because I was given a motion software by a company during game dev time, but it didn't suit my story. So, it's just like this.

Once again, thank you for playing through this story-game, and I am happy you found it fun in some ways.

Best Wishes !

(PS - I can't see your blanked-out spoiler comments, by the way.... My web browser must be weird. So, I am unable to respond. Sorry !)
