Oh, I see. Haha. Alright. :) I tend to look a lot these days at the WiP and Ideas forum anyway. =) Hahaha. Though if you do post it up, I could always use a reminder. :)))

This looks amazing!
1. Will you still play it, even though it's out of season...?
Yes!
2. Which character will you go for first? :)
Maybe Landice Rosenfeld?
3. Any questions, comments, suggestions...? ^_^
Will Clarissa Davis be datable?

O.O Yay! A mystery visual novel, finally! Any tentative release date? I really want to play it ;_; \(*0*)/

1. Yes, yes, yes! *raises hand*

2. Nope. No idea....All the characters seem very intriguing.

3. Is this very dark? Like more than threatening or demanding ransom?

@Minisuttonfoster
1. Thank you! The CGs, GUI, and some BGs are incomplete yet, however... so we might not be able to release it yet. :) I think it'll probably end up being in-season after all. Haha.
2. Oooh, another Landice fan. ;) I had so much trouble writing that dude's route! :D
3. No... I don't have much experience with non-GxB stories, tbh. :(

@Ina
Awww, thank you! Since there are still lots of incomplete stuff (like I said above, haha) we might just release this in Christmas, after all.
2. Whew, glad you thought so! :)
3. No, not really. It's actually pretty simple... I think? Well, I tried not to make it too serious. :) I hope it won't seem ridiculous or anything, though...

Anyway, thank you guys for checking this thread out! :)

Yaaay, so it might be a Christmas release after all! =D What wonderful timing! ^__^

(PLOT TWIST: Ran08 was planning this all along. You got us feeling down and hyped up at the same time, and then BAM you decide to release it in season. Well played, well played...) ;)

@Ferdokki
Hahaha! Oh my gosh Ferdokki. ^^ That's so cute. :") No, I didn't plan this! :D I thought we could finish this earlier, hahaha, but... I guess an in-season release would be best, after all. It gives me time to polish the script, hihi, seeing as it's the only thing completed as of now. =)

@Ina
Yay! :) I hope I don't disappoint you guys. (feeling nervous)

I am now stalking. How did I miss this? The art is so fantastic, I can't tell you how much I love the style of it! Also, I don't think you should be worried about not being a good writer. I'm just about positive you are much, much better than you give yourself credit for. ;) I'll be watching~

@Ferdokki
Ooooooh, I've got a stalker! =) Thank you so much for the support guys! This really means A LOT to me, and to the other people who are contributing to this project. :)

@Ina
Haha, please call me Ran. And aww, thank you! It's just that... the release for this game is so delayed already, haha, that I feel so embarrassed. =)

@AntiquedFae
I love Hapuki's art style as well! :) So lovely~
Aww, thank you! I did my best with this, haha, although I have to admit that "mystery" stories at not my forte, so I think it falls flat in that aspect.

You're welcome. :) And your best is the best, period.~ Mystery is arguably the toughest genre to write (even though I love it) so you're not alone in that regard. I struggle with it too. I look really forward to playing it! :D

I agree with AntiqueFae, I know from firsthand experience how hard it is to write a mystery. You have to make sure details that seem clear in your head are also clear to the player/reader. You don't want them to complain about loose ends you didn't realize existed. =S
There's also the whole aspect of keeping it a mystery and having "thriller" moments. You don't want to give away too much information, but you also don't want to be lame about the plot and the twists. Gah, it's so hard! >.<

But I have faith in Ran. =) It seems like the project is working out. =) And I guess that's why I'm looking forward to it. ^__^

@AntiquedFae
Haha, thank you so much! I really, really, really love mysteries and crime dramas, tbh. You know the case of Kitty Genovese? Actually, that case is one of my main inspirations for this story. =) It's not... similar, at all, haha... but there is one important thing that I used as a reference for the VN

Ooooh. Yeah, they're quite tough to write! :) TTWM is... well, a mystery, but you don't really get to solve or anything like that. (That's why I hope people won't hate me for it, hahaha.) Will your game allow players to solve? :)

And yay! Thanks!

@Ferdokki
Yes, you guys are quite right, I suppose. ^^ And oh my gosh, I agree with you completely! That's exactly what I'm scared of! I don't want people to think that the mystery part is just... shallow and not at all worth it, haha. Like, I don't want readers to think, "That's it? JUST that?!" Hahaha. And I'm kinda getting that kind of vibe with this story... hahaha. Must. Totally. Polish. (During my free time, hihi, since I have other projects at the moment and... I'm also currently studying in a univ, so... not much time, yeah. Hahaha.)

Thank you so much! Huhu, your support is very much appreciated. :( :D
