A bit off-topic, but on the subject of computers, have you tried geekpolice.net? They may be able to help you get it up and running again, they work for free and guide you through the process of fixing it yourself.

My dad is working on it, and turns out the power supply box exploded in the middle of my game, that's why it won't start. the hard drive's untouched so don't worry.

And my dad hates me everytime the PC crashes due to hard drive errors. Gladly it's still repairable. :D

Anyway I got Java in this PC so BACK TO WORK o u o

Wahoo!!! Power supplies are annoyingly finicky but luckily easy to replace. I'm glad it didn't damage any other components O_O

And that you can get back to work on your KN, it's going to be interesting!

My dad's with me, as well. ;) My own PC's not set up yet so I'm stuck with my brother's PC at the meantime. I've finally gotten jEdit to work here so I'm really happy I can work on it now~

Edited first post a little for real.

Okay, with NaNoRenO being finished I'll be back on track with this. I'll finish off the script before I make more sprites for the side characters and stuff like that. As far as CG sketches goes, we're well, although there are still a couple that needs to be done.

Probably by the end of the month or end or May or bah. It depends since I'm not sure as to how fast can my cg artist crank up sketches this time since I can't bug her personally, and I have entrance exam review classes, and art classes... eh. But I'm working on the script now and it's... getting there I guess... ^^;

I didn't noticed that you weren't the one doing all the art this time >.< Damn, should read the staffs carefully!

Anyway, good luck.

Hahaha! Enta, you know I can't make quality art like that pretty fast. XD If only I can I wouldn't have hired her.

Mini-update, I'm working on some sprites for the dream sequences just now. I'll show samples later. And also, Dana's backstory is finished (as in I just got done drafting) and finally tied to Cetus' backstory properly. So now all that's left is Sirius's backstory and I'll be back to coding! :D

I'll probably regret making sprites now because I've got art classes and I'll pretty much see tons of errors in these after that. ^^;

Anyway, I'm doing sprite progress. Here's some faces I'm sure you can recognize.

Yes, that's a school uniform she's wearing on the left.

I really like the way the flat colors look, they just look good together as a whole.

As for the sketch on the right, I think I recognize that bunny. *stares at your signature*

That Bunny's like a trademark to the girl ;)

And another familiar face.

Why do I feel like shortening the skirt a little more... But then I feel like it's going to look more like a generic Japanese high school than a military academy...

EDIT: Another face I'm sure is pretty familiar, if you've read Twin Faces.

I can't help but show. xD

I think keeping the skirt longer is good for a few reasons, one being the one you mentioned and another being military uniforms are just conservative in general (unless you look at anime, in that case they cover... almost nothing sometimes, which looks nice sometimes but can be impractical). Personally I think a longer skirt also looks better with her top as well. If it was shorter I wouldn't think that long sleeves would be a good match for the skirt and that shorter sleeves would look better... though I have no problems with long skirts and short sleeves so... maybe I am not the person to comment on fashion.

The second outfit is just.... ADORABLE. It's frilly and girly and I love knee length dresses and it's just really cute. The rose in her hair is a nice touch and draws attention away from the dress a bit and to her face (in my opinion anyway, it did that for me).

Hi! I just checked out the demo its pretty creative so far except for some errors in grammar and spelling. But hey it is a demo. What surprised me was even though the game is classed as dystopia its not heavy and depressing. Even though Sirius and Cetus had gone through harsh punishments and have dark pasts their scene together was quite warm. It was refreshing to see strong female characters who didn't lose hope or end up gloomy and jaded after what they've been through.
Like when Cetus got beaten up she didn't mope and feel sorry for herself. She just brushed it off like it was nothing
General Blackstar is weird. I'm beginning to speculate as to why she hates Cetus.

The art is nice as well but you probably already knew that xD Anyway good luck with the project. I'm cheering you on!

I didn't want to make the demo way too sad. xD But thank you~!

I'm writing Dana's path now that was conjured out of the supposed-to-be bad ending scene and some characters were added! I'm gonna draw some more sprite lineart then throw in previews later.

As for word count... man my memory is failing me to get word counts. I guess I got too scared after writing for CTS and ended up having 30k words for a demo...
