Nah it's fine. I mean, I think everyone can see that you had really serious issues. Having had some bad things happening to me this year as well, I completely understand.
That's why I didn't take the wolf-car and drive to your home to spank you for the delay! :D

Wow, I played Flower Shop, and I LOVED it! I'm highly anticipating this one! If my mom allows me to, I'll buy it when it's released!

no, the game is NOT finished yet, but the final main menu is a clear sign that the wait is almost over 8)

"Good things come to those who wait."

This game seems to me like it definitely fits under good things, so I'll be happy to wait and then snap it up as soon as it's out. :D

I have hard time to believe it myself, but... the beta version is now available! :lol:
NOTE: In the end, after lots of testing, I decided to have the game last 11 weeks. I know it's NOT realistic (it takes place on a winter break) but I decided that gameplay was more important than realism. Using a shorter amount of time was really easy to miss some events and so was too hard to get the endings!

Downloads (they won't change even when the final game is released):
http://www.winterwolves.com/download.ph ... IFDemo.exe
http://www.winterwolves.com/download.ph ... IFDemo.zip
http://www.winterwolves.com/download.ph ... mo.tar.bz2

Buy now
http://www.winterwolves.com/buy.php?prod=17030046

Temporary game page (description is not yet final):
http://www.winterwolves.com/winterinfairbrook.htm

Note:
The beta pre-order was tested, I was able to reach all the endings - I've seen them all on my end.
A friend of Ayu is proofreading all the texts one final time, so there still might be a few typos in this beta, but now all the sprites/expressions should be fine (in particular the side-dialog image, I checked them all carefully).
Of course if you find any bugs, please report them, thanks :)

First Corpse Party on PSN, now this?

Guess, I should say goodbye to this month's allowance!

And perhaps to my free time as well... >_<
Oh well, at least I can finally-kidnap-and-claim-Ryan-for-myself. *Coughs* I was meaning to say... "pursue" Ryan. XD

XD Jacob is my favorite so far! Something about him makes it so much fun to pick on him. I did that a lot with kids and friends that where like jacob, when I was younger and even to this day. I still have a lot of fun teasing some of my friends and family. It's really fun to go up to them and yell "BOO!" and startle them......goodness it sounds kind of mean but it was so much fun ^^;
I also love Natalie's milk and cookies line! It really made me laugh!
sadly because I chose to tease Jacob he hates me :shock:TT.TT

Poor Jacob! :D
Glad you liked the writing, though since was done by Ayu the quality it's not a surprise :)

Yes I LOVE the way Ayu writes out the narration and dialogue! I can't wait till I get a little extra money so that I can buy the game! I did have a question though, is the option to get the CD version of a game available for Winter in Fairbrook as well? I hope so because I would love to have a copy and also is there any artbook of Deji's illustrations for the game available for purchase? I thought it would be wonderful to have a visual novel artbook of Winter in Fairbrook, like the official fan books that they have for other visual novel games one being my favorite Love Revo! I love the colors!

I would seriously buy that artbook! I love her coloring style!

Yay! <3

I found one thing on the demo: when Steve is talking to Natalie, at some point his name tag says "Ryan" instead of "Steve".
Also, when Natalie gets to The Flower Shop, she complains she forgot to wear a jacket and she's freezing, when she's been wearing the jacket+scarf outfit since she was shown driving the car.

And as the character artist.... I'd love to see them make more faces! XD *hides under a rock*

EDIT:
@Morishita: I'd love to have an artbook of The Flower Shop myself!... But I'm afraid all the art I've done (for both games) have all been done on a pretty small resolution just enough to fit the game, unsuitable for printing =/ (except the promo image I just finished the other day, which I purposefully made bigger so it could be printed).

EDIT2:
When I use the "Buy Now" button on the demo, it takes me to the Summer in Fairbrook page instead of the Winter one ^^;

Morishita: the CD option on BMT just sends the same file on CD (and a blank one, without any picture). I'm sure Ayu will send it but at the conventions, so if you're in USA and can go there it's possible (at least you would get a custom CD, with printed cover and everything)
Deji: thanks for the bug reporting!
