The story is about a girl named Lois who realizes how solitary could be her life at her 17 years old.
Her foster mother, Rebecca is always busy working out of town so Lois had to learn how to take care of herself thourgh years.
One day, after another unsuccessful encounter with Rebecca, Lois started to hear screams and seen things that are out of normal.
She thinks that being alone all that time has started to make effect on her brain...But all her fears will grow bigger when one of the

ywah this sounds pretty awesome...
A wall hating a girl for not knowing what happened to him...

This is amazing, as it happens a lot in real life (well not the point that you are a wall) but a lot of people blame each other for something they cant explain.

Alone nthe story got mee and I hope I can play the full version soon.

+Did you liked the demo so far?
Havent played it yet but will do!
+Which parts did you feel it needed more work? Feedback please ;_;!
None really. Art is good it gives a personal touch to the...weird glasses girl for example xD
+Your favorite character maybe XD?
The Wall! xD
+Any theories of what might be happening?(I would love to hear this ones!)
Well I got a few ideas for the reason he IS the wall...and how their relationship could turn out xD

haha thank you for replying! Im very glad you liked the plot so far
All I can say this kind of turns a little bit agressive when events come on chapter 05
Its like a rain of information that will overwhelm a little the MC
I like to put in a plate at some point of my stories this "sence of right" of my characters...What is correct for everyone but "realistically" what is correct for them? lol

Canaan has a fan! Maybe he will get anti fans also with that foul mouth of him lol
I would like to hear your theories about why he is a wall...I bet they are not so distant of what I alrady wrote(:_; I think Its kind of obvios this is Lois x Canaan since theres any boy appart from him..orz)
speaking of...Im working on his sprite...I want to show you all how it looks(Or I did alredy? hehe)
But Im afraid if you see him maybe it will be a turn down to keep reading the VN...orz

Well....its a weird thing to put him i9nto a wall..
But my first thought was either that he died and (I have no idea how or why) had a deep connection with the wall...maybe he died while his blood was all over the wall...well a lil...FAR but that was so kinda my first thought xD

Or maybe some kind of curse. Again, I have no idea who would curse him or why...:/

Naaahhh I like such characters, he is a typical tsundere, I love them! xD

Show me Canaan *___*

Ah...I cant show him yet!
But I think I can tease some images hehe
Image
some event cg...who are this people D:...And what is he looking at?
Image
trash bgs..I like how it turned..I looks so plain so surreal lol

the thought he is dead also passed by the head of Lois also!
He seemed to be an angry spirit or something..A curse would be totally fitting also XD
hehe I guess he its a little tsundere

Just finished playing the demo!
There were a lot spelling/grammatical errors, but the story was really interesting. And the art is gorgeous! Elsa was my favorite character.
The scream freaked me out when it played, haha xD

I thought there might be Spanish or French involved when in the beginning it said something like 'I have 17 years old'.

And you should definitely keep the scream! It was startling, but it was really good at setting a creepy mood.

This looks really interesting, although I haven't gotten round to playing the demo. From the other comments and this thread though, I recommend getting someone to edit the game before you release it properly. I'd hate for errors to detract from the intriguing storyline.

Oh!..Maybe thats whats its turning down so many people...Mink already sent me the first 3 chapters corrected..And for the next relese I will add chapter 4 checked also! So it will be more understandable


Hey guys I think if Im successful with The hurtful wall I might work on another visual but maybe I think I will do it comercial...What do you guys expect of a paid VN?

Yes, grammer and spelling errors can really distract a person while playing a game. While I don't think anyone will blame you or hold it against you, since you're not a first language English speaker, they will however expect you to get someone to edit it. Frankly I've seen plenty of people willing to edit games on this site, so there's no excuse for even first language English speakers to not have their game checked. It's great that you've found someone to go over yours though. ^__^
