One Night Stand

#1 Post by Kinmoku » Fri Oct 21, 2016 11:39 am

You may remember my NaNoRenO 2016 submission One Night Stand...

Well, I went and developed it some more, as it proved very popular, plus I had so many more ideas about how I wanted it to be. I also bugged a lot of people on this forum trying to get certain parts of it to work! Thank you all for helping me and making this game possible!

Anyway, long story short, the full version is finally available to download!

Update: You can play it on Steam http://store.steampowered.com/app/549860, itch.io https://kinmoku.itch.io/one-night-stand or GameJolt http://gamejolt.com/games/one-night-stand/204556.

Some more details below:

One Night Stand thrusts you into a "morning after" scenario where you decide how things play out.

After a night of fun, passion, and one too many drinks, you awake to discover a complete stranger lying naked beside you in bed.

With only hazy memories of what happened last night, explore a stranger's bedroom in search of clues and try and piece together the truth. You may resort to some unusual methods to find your answers, but take care not to prod and pry too much though – a nosy guest quickly becomes an unwanted one!

With 12 different endings to find, can you keep up the act long enough to find out what actually happened or will you escape when the opportunity presents itself?

Hey Taleweaver, thank you so much for the lovely comment :) I'm glad you enjoyed it! Did you have a favourite ending in particular? I'm curious to know :3
Yeah, the "honest ending" - the fourth one, if I remember correctly, where you pretty much don't snoop around, try to get dressed ASAP, admit to not remembering a single thing and show that you care for Robin. You get exactly what you deserve for that, and it's absolutely brilliant.

I also have a soft spot for the two wacky "I'm a perv" endings (not spoiling them here); they bring just the right amount of silliness into an otherwise pretty down-to-earth story.

If there's one ending I thought was a bit much and too "classic dating VN", it was ending 12, where you follow one clear path through the game and arrive at the "logical end" of that path. It felt a little like wish fulfillment, like if you only talk to one out of eight girls during your usual bishoujo VNs, and that's enough to get her best ending.

I adored this when it was just an entry to NaNo and I'm sure that this is even bigger and better. Can't wait to support the Steam release, too; it always puts a smile on my face whenever I see VNs making it onto Steam. Like we're being accepted further into the mainstream little by little.

I saw Markiplier play this and I've been dying to play it for myself. Definitely going to when I have a little extra time and money. I think the art, animation, and even plot are all stellar and simultaneously ethereal and gorgeous. This is more lovely than a dream escaping into reality.

You need 3 dollars and 20 minutes. Stop making excuses, skip Starbucks today and get it.

You don't need to be an ass. Not everybody has expendable income.


Anyways, I have to say I really enjoyed this version. It's been a while since I played the original, so I can't remember all of the exact differences, but it seems like you added much more personality, especially for the bad ends. I liked all the little things you added (like asking for a super fancy coffee on the fly and her being weirded out).

One thing that I kind of miss from the original, IIRC, is that you can be straightforward right away, instead of bluffing until she asks about the bar. Also being able to tear straight out of the room like bat out of hell. :lol:

I still have to get the
true friends
and a couple of the bad endings.

Otherwise, the others have pretty much said every thing I can think of: the presentation is great, the mechanics are intuitive and consistent, and writing is sharp. All in all, great job!

Is there going to be a walkthrough made for the game? I've gotten every ending, but the 9th and 12th keep escaping me. Any hints?

Ending 9: Easiest ending to get IMO. Just try to prove to your friend early on that you REALLY ended up in someone else's bed.

Ending 12: There are many references to Robin's main interest in her room. Find all of them and talk to her about them without being pushy.

I hope you've found them :)

I may make a walkthrough or wiki when I get chance, but I'm really busy right now :( I'm secretly hoping a fan will make one hehe! There's already a few endings on Youtube you can follow.
