Hiya. I thought I should let you know that I can't download from that link without a decryption key! Maybe you could upload it elsewhere or change the file so that a key isn't needed?

Congratulation, it is a nice little story!

I looked at the source code and here are some tips for your next game:

1/ You don't have to call character e1, e2, e3... "s" for sakura and "l" for len might have been easier for you to remember ;)

2/ It is possible to automaticaly import all the image. Since version 6.10, it is even simplier with a new configuration variable.

3/ It is possible to link displayed images to one character so you don't have to hide and show their sprites everytime you want to change their expression. More information here and example below:

Code: Select all

image sakura neutral = "Sakura_neutral.png"
image sakura blush = "Sakura_blush.png"
image sakura angry = "Sakura_angry.png"
define s = Character ('Sakura', image='sakura')

[...]

show sakura neutral
s "I'm normal."
# no need to hide sakura neutral, Ren'Py knows it is the same character and hide it automaticaly
show sakura angry
s "I'm angry."

[...]

# or even better:
show sakura neutral
s "I'm normal."
s angry "I'm angry."
s blush "I'm confused."
I should really do a tutorial about this or found one the link to since I always give the same tips ;)

@MimirollCookie-

Wow . . . that was fast; can't ask for any better service than that! I've downloaded the story, and it opens, so it appears all is well. I am hoping to be able to go through it fully later today.

Thank you!

Finally found this thread yo.

I just downloaded it earlier today, cause I saw your Guestbook entry and decided to play a game you made. Congrats on your first game! (We haven't gotten ours worked on, cause of work.)

I have a question... Would it be okay if I make a review on your game? I read it until the end and saw something about you not taking criticism or something like that and I thought it would be better if I asked you first. If anything, I won't be bashing your work. (It wouldn't make for a good review if I just complained about the things that are wrong lol.)

- Piet

PS. I'd be interested in that sequel if you made one.
SO MANY GAMES, SO LITTLE TIME!!!

For those who are freelance VN staff and also for those who are VN team leaders, please read this. Inform yourselves. Thank you.

Status: More or less busy with IRL work and finishing a game in time for Halloween Jam in itch.io

Brainstorming for the following:
