#1 Post by SmileyFace » Sat Mar 12, 2011 5:00 am

Look at recent posts to see why I need help...

"If only I could buy talent..."

Synopsis
You play as a below average student (you can choose if you want to be a girl or a boy) with an unacquainted love. You're bad at everything. School, socializing, sport.. everything. Until one day you find a store that turns your life upside down.

You can finally become someone with talent.
Only for a small price...

Characters
Ashley = The Main Character
Hailey = The male's love interest.
Nicholas = The female's love interest.
Lee/Li = The twin store keepers.

What to Expect
6 Endings
A Few CGs

Game Update
Story: 100%
Script: 65%
Coding: 40%
Sprites: 99% (Just need a few touch ups)
Backgrounds: 35%
CGs: 40%
Music: ???

Beta Tester
SilverxBlue

(This is no longer a NaNoReNo Project)

Yeah I wanted to make it so that both genders can enjoy the game without feeling... weird?

Here are the sketches of the two main characters. >_<

Oh, you're not aware of it? Haha, then it is simply an amusing coincidence. I'd be interested to read this regardless.
