The art is looking good! I'm trying to guess who everyone is, but I'm stupid so I can't.

They are as followed:
Sherry, Morgan, Hector, Lilly, Tanya, Dwight, Maria, George, Tinasa, Abigail, Gabe, and Abraham

Granted, half of them could have been guessed with just reading their bios (Morgan has a shirt that ressembles a prisoner's outfit, Lilly and Maria are the only Muttaga in the game, Sherry is a little girl, Dwight is the boy, and Gabe really does ressemble a hobo.)

Dropping by to leave a little something:

Also, if you're an artist and are in a giving mood, feel free to do some fanart if you want. I'll add it into the game's image gallery and credit you as well. (You might also be lucky and get the game before anyone else does)

As a fellow horror fan, I can't wait to see this released. Poor George...he looks like he's having a rough time. Nice looking art! I also didn't realize he knew French, interesting (I didn't read the Guide, to avoid possible spoilers). If I could draw, I'd gladly provide some fan art. In an alternate world where we could, I'd probably draw Abraham or Sherry. Will there ever be any choices that we can make during the story?

Good luck getting this finished. :)

The game has a menacing atmosphere, but isnt full blown horror. Dosen't mean there arent any mindfuck moments
And you really should read the Commodore's Guide. Nothing in it is really spoilerish.
George isn't French, but he grew up in an area where the people spoke mostly French.
As for choices? Well, besides the episode select, there is 1 choice that will decide whether you get the "Good" end or the True end for the first Ep.
(Definition of "Good" may vary)

Awh man I'm really looking forward to this! These teasers make me want to play the game D; But, it'll be worthwhile...:') The scene with George looks beautiful *0* There is no other way to describe it m'afraid :') The preference screen is also amazing - looking the 'FORBIDDEN' on the save as well xD

Thank you. Glad you've enjoyed the previews. Though if you're curious to learn more, there's always the Commodore's Guide~

And about that FORBIDDEN: It's only on the main menu where it says that. I ain't mean enough to keep you from saving in-game.

Just a quick show of hands:
Would you WANT to see this game have a Good ending, or is just having 1 True ending good enough?
There is a Good ending I have started working on, one that is drasticly different from the true end. Reason I'm asking this is whether to add it in as part of the game, or as a side bonus

It's really up to you! I always play for all the endings so as long as the True Ending actually feels like a true, conclusive ending, I'm good with that (though the true ending can technically be a cliffhanger if this is only part of a series)! Maybe having a Good Ending would be better to spice up your repertoire? (Unless you normally write good endings into your VNs/scripts/stories?)

I guess what I'm trying to say is that a Good Ending would be good if you really thought it would ADD something to the story/game. Otherwise it would probably be fine as an extra!

Answer is spoilered for story reasons:
The good ending and the true ending more-or-less end the same way: the Committee gets dissolved because the nature of the Killer Game is revieled. But how it gets there is drasticly different betweenbthe two endings. Charaters take different actions in both paths, and change who lives and dies. Also, the True end does end in a sort of "to be continued" fasion, which dosent occour in the Good End (Which does, more or less, conclude the story.

A visual novel about a battle royale? Awesome. I get a bit of a Hunger Games feeling when reading the first post, but that is a very good thing (a good series to be linked to imo). Very nice GUI too. Hmm...I haven't read the guide because I'm not sure how spoilerish it is (also, I feel like it'll make me really want to read this and I'm not sure when it'll be finished.) But yeah, very nice. I can't help but shake the feeling that the true end will be very depressing (when you compare it to having a good ending), but I'm a bit of an odd type that actually likes the sad endings in the visual novels with good stories/writing. So yeah, I'm in favor of the true ending if the good ending goes against what you see for this visual novel.
