England Exchange [G/B x G/B] [Commercial]

Something unusual for me - no angst murder plot, no fancy game mechanics, just a lot of cute singles (Eight! Eight love interests! EIGHT!) and a lot of opportunities to go on dates and have fun with your love interest. Why so different? Well, this is a Hanabira game, which means I didn't originally write it, I'm mostly just publishing it. :)

You play an American college student (choice of male or female protagonist, renamable) who has signed up for a semester abroad in England, where you'll be living in a hostel and meeting fellow students from around the world who have, like you, been drawn to London. Along the way, you'll get a part-time job, run afoul of various cultural confusions, get drunk for the first time (lower drinking age!), go on a Beach Episode trip, go on a lot of dates, encounter a mystery, and maybe even find the love of your life. Or at least a new direction. (But not One Direction. Can't afford those licensing fees.)

Why did I get involved in this project? Well, simple reason, I actually am an American who moved to England, so I have a little experience with the subject. :)

Check out the England Exchange website with free demo versions


Feel free to ask any questions! There's some info already available in the old WIP thread.

Great name! As a Brit myself, I'm very excited to see how these stories have been written and eventually play out :) The artwork looks fantastic too. I especially like ss_5 - The tension feels very real here! I'll be sure to check it out.

Eventually, but not for a bit yet. Anyone who buys now will be entitled to a Steam key on launch. Because of the way regional pricing varies I know for some folks it'll be much cheaper on Steam and for some folks it's cheaper now, so whatever works.

If you look in the Checklist that appears after you win the game, there's a page for listing what route endings you have and haven't gotten. It hides how many endings each character has until you've gotten at least one, but after that you can see how many possibilities still remain.
Unfortunately, Brendon has a Bad ending and an EVEN WORSE ending.

Brendon's romance route is only available for the female PC. If you're playing the girl's side it should be pretty straightforward dating Brendon. Sometimes the achievements only pop up onscreen when you exit the game, although they unlock in your account earlier, it's just a thing about the steam client.

Unless you're looking for the OTHER achievement involving Brendon, but I'm not quite sure which one you're asking about.

Is there any special requirements to get Ashley's route? I couldn't seem to get her with the male protagonist, I managed to get the others without any problems. x_x I also tried to be 'straight' from the start but that didn't seem to help either.

Getting onto her route, or getting her best ending?

To get her route as the male protagonist make sure that when you see her with a bunch of strange people, you DO interfere, and you DO insist that she talk to you about it later. Then, as long as you haven't started dating someone else before that point, she should pretty much ask you out.
