Lol I think he was cool (as man can't really think him as "hot" haha). I agree that he could be an interesting option indeed.

I purchased the game a couple of days ago and I've been playing it for a couple of days. I'll keep you posted and I'll write a review in the near future. Liking it though for sure!

@Jack

Kudos for the play system being so well thought out. What I actually do not like doesn't have to do with the game but the site. Looking at the front page I'd never know that there was a Linux demo or full version even though it's true. Being a gamer and a full time Linux user for the most part I know that there are Linux users out there looking for games to play. You almost have room up there for logos that say "Linux Demo" up there. It might be easier to put it somewhere else instead of redoing everything but I think keeping the Linux crowd on par with the other platforms can't go wrong for you. You also might wanna contact some Linux gaming websites and ask them to list you there for more sales and traffic.

@Deji

I've looked around here and your art stands out and it looks good from what I've seen.

@ Sake

I still haven't played it yet but I'll write a small review and post it here to see how the game plays out.


Thanks a lot for making a Linux version though and I know I said Linux way too many times though. Sorry.

Edit-Nvm my computer is too old

Yes true, need to add also the linux button. Unfortunately for commercial projects linux market is pretty bad, and my previous game libraries didn't support that system, so all my other games not made in renpy had only Pc/Mac version. But will add the button, and of course will contact the linux sites about the game :)

I get that the whole commercial aspect seems against the whole linux crowds state of mind but at least for me I use it since I can't afford windows and this computer is old. Although I can afford games so it's a bit of a little problem. A lot of people on linux use wine though so you might get away with it but it's always good to expand your market for practically no new costs. If I remember right for ren'py games to port them to linux is as easy as the other platforms.

Yes, with renpy making a linux version is instant. I was talking only of my previous game libraries, of course for renpy games is much easier! :)

C/C++ and a cross-platform library called PTK. But once you try python is hard to get back to C (or any other language TBH).

...Am I the only one who's desktop icon of the Flower Shop is a big fat blob of pixelated madness? I can't read "The Flower Shop" on it at all and it just looks off compared to all the other icons on the desktop. :|

Hm well depends the resolution of your desktop I think :oops: I basically used the main menu text/logo for the icon itself. Maybe should have used a simple flower?

That sounds good! Keeping icons as simple as possible is always the best way to go, imo.
My resolution is 1280x1024, btw. C:

Played through the actual game.
I'm having a really difficult time raising the Romance stat. I tried simply answering the girls accordingly and making people happy, but it's not working with me. Any help or tip for poor me? XD

Spending time with Susana will raise your romance stat.
