What hinted at me was that he made it clear he knew who Robin was early on, and the fact that she asks him what he knows in fact about music, that seemed to prepare for a future reverseal of the situation.
Ah, yes. I was writing the scene to set it up so that it's not just out-of-the-blue-btw-he-plays-an-instrument when the time came. Hehe. I'll see if I can make it more ... subtle. x_x

Ah, okay! I was just wondering because there was going to be a French motif with Beau, and I didn't want to offend the culture or language. I only took three years of French classes, so I am still a beginner. >_>

Shading might change, but meh. I had fun doing it. >_>

Yes they are pretty! And (from a woman's point of view) I really like how Bruno looks! Maybe I just go for the 'bad boy' looking types, I don't know but... god he's nice heehee =] Do you draw these? If so I'm envious! They are so well done!

Ooooo~ It's exciting seeing new sprites~ I love the blue hair XD

And you're the one who colors? You do a pretty good job, cell shading is not my friend ): When thin I can say as well then though is that something I noticed is that the shading on the skin is very subtle, it might just be my laptop, but I can't see the difference between the darker shades and the main color on the skins of some, Robin and Liz for sure(Bruno here is fine :D).

I love how colorful it is though... I also love color XD

Hey Aleema - I just got around to playing the demo...

Umm...it sorta frickin' ROCKS.

I'm not all the way through the demo yet:
Beau just agreed to play keyboard.
And so far I am AMAZED at the complexity and detail that's been put into this. The writing is just phenomenal. The programming is top notch, the art is great. This is seriously commercial worthy material.

The writing is really sophisticated and well-done. That scene between Dallas and Robin is legitimately heart-breaking and we're given so much information with very few words of explanation which is so brilliant. We're shown, not told, exactly what happened between them. And I'm REALLY excited for the relationship to unfold (I'll probably go for him first ^^). I'm CRAZY impressed, just so you know.

Umm, you're a goddess of of the code, but that much is a given. XD

Can't WAIT for the full game. <3 It'll be aaawwwesome.

The Bruno sprite is cool, and looks rough enough. I really like the Liz one though =P

Thanks for the honest feedback! I do need more tips about what does and doesn't look good.
And I totally agree that the skin shading is too light, now that I look at it. I think I made it really light to hide the flaws. :oops: I'll go through and strengthen the skin shadows.

Wow, thanks!! I can't wait until you finish the demo. xD It is pretty long, I was surprised when I clocked it at an hour, but I honestly didn't see how else to pace the introduction of the characters. Also, I have to thank IonicMomo for her initial characterization (and of course, unknown5). When I just had placeholder sprites, she knew how the characters spoke and thought ... Great stuff. Also, thanks about saying it could be commercial. Not my plan, despite how much it would help me. ^^; When I wrote the DallasxRobin scene, I was hoping that people would know what was going on ... I'm so relieved that others are getting those [butterflies in your tummy/whatever you felt personally] from reading it as I did from writing it, hehe. xD

I don't really know what to say...
I've been following this post...this game since before I even joined lemmasoft with high hopes that this game would blow my mind.
It did more than that. Their is just so much detail and so much character...just wow.
I don't think it'll mean much, but I'm beyond impressed.
You're awesome.

A fan.

I can't wait until this is done.
The demo is so pro! 8D I like the music/themes/the whole design.
My band's name is NiBORgeance~ X3
(at first it was just NIBOR, but then I stole the geance from a premade band name.
and btw, NIBOR is Robin spelled backwards. XD I'm so lame. OTL)
