Okay, so I think that I'll finally download the demo and give my serious opinion afterwards. -__-

I usually try not to download demos, but this VN looks so charming, I want to check it out.

The art looks cool (I really like how they change clothes all the time)

Music volume control doesn't seem to work.

Hello everyone! I think it's been a long time since we've shown any real progress and I feel guilty about my disappearance spell D: so I came here to inform you that as Ana assured everybody, yes, we are still working on E:tA and yes, we've been very busy with school ':D (shucks, right?) But, since both of us are on vacation right now, we are once again focusing on our VN! So expect to see some updates in the next few weeks, both writing and art-wise. For reals this time, we promise <3
Cheers!

^^^ What she said.

Also, I want to add that we will release a new demo at some point, featuring the new art, a longer chunk of the story, and hopefully GUI improvements.

And once again, thank you for your support! It really keeps us going.
@Anne: Huh, that's weird. I'll look into it. Thank you for the heads up!

EDIT
Current statistics:

Code: Select all

The game contains 6,486 dialogue blocks, containing 59,184 words and 307,766
characters, for an average of 9.1 words and 47 characters per block.

The game contains 34 menus, 68 images, and 11 screens.
Are you proud of me guys?

Good evening (or afternoon or morning), dear wonderful people who still keep an eye on this project!

So, to prove that we at 'Shroom Samba aren't twiddling our thumbs, a quick update (you might want to sit down): We are halfway there.

You read that correctly: At just over 70,000 words, I can report that The Academy is now 1/2 written! As far as art is concerned, we already have all the revamped sprites + all the expressions, so what is ahead of Dee now are the various outfits.

Yay? Yay!

A bit more stats for the sake of bragging:

Code: Select all

The game contains 8,011 dialogue blocks, containing 72,376 words and 375,120
characters, for an average of 9.0 words and 47 characters per block.

The game contains 43 menus, 68 images, and 11 screens.
Cheers!

I bet you’ve heard this a lot, but the cartoonish art is really nice, although I DO prefer anime style.

I’m definitely gonna play through the demo when I get the chance. :D

Glad to see you guys are still kickin'! (Also you should get a Twitter so I can follow your stuff better!)
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!

I’ve played through the demo now― and I absolutely adore what I’ve seen so far. I’ve said it once, and I’m saying it again, I really enjoy the art. ^^
