The typo in your topic title may not give those who cry out in pain at poor grammar and spelling much cause for hope...
Don't worry, we can get through it together. I didn't forget about you! I just got overwhelmed.

The art is quite nice. I think I've seen the resources used in other games too. The one thing I think would really improve it would be
some pictures of the game they're playing, maybe a flickering TV effect too.
As for editting...
It should be "Wow, you're good!" and the "Great Wheels" game should be capitalized on both letters.
Is this your first game? Congratulations!

Wish if the story is lengthen because the storyline when narrated is too short...kind of make me bored. There isn't suspense and climax to the storyline.

True, my main focus, and probably my biggest mistake, was a story that was only about the simple joy of playing video games together with someone you like.

Having no prior education in writing, art or programming, i was worried that i wouldn't be able to properly join the rest of the community. Hence i started to rush something out that used the limited resources i had available.

Lately, however, I've been practicing so that my skills are a little closer to what i could call 'proper' writing. Maybe, at some point, I'll have a decent story to tell *Crosses fingers*


Until then however, I'll recommend trying out Gaming Buddy-R : A Remake, made by Grim_reaper (http://games.renpy.org/game/gamingbuddyr.shtml) Hopefully it's a bit more to your liking :)
