Yay! Thanks a lot <3 Also, do you think the Skip button is really unreadable? If so, I will change it.

(Also, I love how Estelle looks like she's seething with rage and Ezio acts like it's a walk through the park. xD)
Woo-hoo~ Glad you think so! <3 Also, more is on its way. ^^

(And yeah, that's how he rolls. Poor Estelle has anger management issues when it comes to him xD)

It's not unreadable, just kind of made me go "WHOA- oh wait it's just the skip button..." XD I don't think it's a big deal though, seeing as I'm the only one so far who has brought this up.

Hi guys.

A quick update: We are seriously working at the game.

Currently:
- Finishing demo script
- Gathering some freeware music
- Customising the remainder of the menus (only two left)

Also, you should check out our blog, where you can now find some information about the function of the Elements.

Give it a shot... Please?

Ok I have to admit something; due to the awesome art this project was automatically put on my stalk watch list and I just briefly skimmed through the plot. This was an injustice on my part. I've just read through the biology lesson on the blog and the world your story is set in seems really well thought out and very interesting. I will definitely be paying more careful attention in the future.

I love the art style this is in!
I also love the GUI!
It looks so... appropriate. :)
The skip button is just the tiniest bit hard to read... but I love it like that. D':
I think it might just be me...

Oh my, you have no idea how happy your words make me! *U* And yes, we tried to explain the world's mechanics and have things, you know, make sense. xD I'm glad you're interested in this and I hope it'll live to your expectations. <3

Popping in for a quick update:

Code: Select all

Statistics:

The game contains 1,480 screens of dialogue.
These screens contain a total of 14,002 words,
for an average of 9.5 words per screen.
The game contains 6 menus.
Also, if you're interested, I added the characters' surnames to the first post.

Since no one is posting here, I might as well triple-post, right? xD *shot*

Anyhow, a heads up: our blog is updated with a Gallery. You might want to take a look, you could find something new there.

Cheers,
Ana

Nice MM. I love how the items are a bit related to their menu buttons.

As my kind friend with the purple mushroom said, demo is almost ready! Excitement!!!!11!1! (I guess)

With said demo almost done, we will naturally need some beta-testers! Which is why we're opening 4 slots for volunteers. So... Any of you up for it? (Bonus points if you're on Mac OS or Linux xD)

Thanks for the support, guys! <3

Sure, I could test a demo.
Forever Alone: Nerds the Gathering - A brotome game. (Nerdy Valentine's Day Card and small status update 2/14/14)
Night at the Hospital - Maiden voyage of Team Snugglebunny
Skylessia: Tale of the Boon - Epic fantasy whatsit, currently on hiatus.
Viking Pipsqueak Productions Blog (under construction)

I occasionally frequently draw other people's characters. Now offering delinquentization, medievalization, and cyborgification. Hit me up in PM if you want sprites for your KN or non-ren'ai VN.

EVEN IF THE TENDONS OF MY THUMBS TEAR INTO NOTHINGNESS, EVEN IF I GO NEARSIGHTED FROM STARING TOO HARD AT THE SCREEN, EVEN IF MY BODY IS CLOSE TO COLLAPSE FROM THE 72 HOURS I HAVE GONE WITHOUT FOOD! I WILL DEFEAT YOU!
