DEMO V2.7 LINK
However, being exceptional comes at a price, which is something 16-year-old Estelle Devlin will come to realise in her Sophomore year. Making decisions, being responsible and learning to act like an adult are just a few of the problems she’ll have to face while attending there. Now having to fend for herself, Estelle tastes freedom for the first time. And boy, is she going to enjoy it.
Through awkward first-loves, contrived coincidences, a great deal of silliness and coping with her own personal problems, Estelle grows as a person and learns more about herself.
Who will she meet? What bonds will she develop? How will she deal with the stress of living up to the Academy’s high standards? Will she deal with it?
Welcome to the Academy.

We've had this project out in the open for quite a while now, and so far the responses have been... positive? As a team of perfectionists, we'd like to make the best and most enjoyable game possible, which is why we value your feedback! (:
Reading this summary, what did you think about the overall idea? Does it sound cliche and if so, why?
Which of the characters catches your fancy the most/the least? Why?
How long do you think a slice-of-life spanning a school year should be?
