I've been asked to add more romanceable characters, in particular girls :mrgreen: of course I know not everyone likes it so probably I would throw also some more males in it.
It would be cheap like $9.99 and maybe I'll also add some more gameplay/improvement (not sure yet what though).
If there's enough interest in this, I will definitely consider doing that since indeed the sequel is quite far away from being released, and getting back to write new scenes for that setting would be very fun for me :)

I would love to see this! I like the game but I did tend to lose interest with it after a while. (Not entirely sure why, since all of your other games I am constantly hooked on. Maybe it's just the more varied dialogue for activities of your newer games?) I'm excited to hear there is consideration of an expansion and/or sequel, either way it will be great!
I really liked the romances, even if the endings were very bittersweet.

The new artist wouldn't bother me at all, either.

I would definitely pick up the add-on (whether it adds guys or girls to the mix) if you do go ahead with making it!

Update: this is going very well. Aleema is writing the scenes based on my ideas and is turning out amazingly well. I don't say this because is my game :D for real, I'm almost ashamed because it's going to be so much better than the original GxB game! Oh well, I think will have to compensate in the possible sequel/spin-off, from now on will always use external writer since the result is a magnitude better.
Also I picked this artist for the images. Cute and also a bit sexy, though since the game is still quite family friendly I don't think we'll see a girl so undressed like this:

Awe! The new artist is adorable! I have to admit I like that style a lot more than the original game's style, even though that had it's own charm. I am very excited to see this now!

Today artist sent a draft of the 6 dateable girls. I like them all, though probably my favorite is Yana (though Reid doesn't look bad XD)

Six? SIX?! Oh my god you are spoiling us.

I was thinking we'd get.. two, MAYBE three (one of each).

No, wouldn't have been fair, since in the game there are 6 males now :) Also the scenes are going to be slightly longer, Aleema writes too much! (joking, she's doing a great job)

I can't help it, some scenes are just really interesting.
But yes, I write too much. :P

Oh I am SO excited for this! The longer scenes make me smile, and the new girls look GORGEOUS. Yana and Thym are adorable! Probably going for Yana first...

Note that the image above is still a draft! The final quality will be even better :shock:
As you can see Yana got a more transparent outfit... :twisted:

I'm not sure more transparent is really an improvement, the modesty of her outfit was part of what made it cute! IMO.

Well probably final image will have it a bit less transparent! (since she's a farmer daughter should look modest indeed)

I'm going to smile like nothing's wrong. Talk like everything's perfect, act like it’s all a dream and pretend it's not hurting me.
