Echo: Legend of the Centennial Bells

Keith Summers is your average nineteen year old guy attending Southern Bell Academy, a private vocational school for boys. There he is studying to become a great chef so that one day he can open a bakery and sell cakes, his childhood dream. Now in his second year, certain events have lead him to fall in love with one of his friends or even someone unexpected. Unknown to him, every time he resolves his feelings with another his world resets anew, so he is forever without lasting love. What has he done to suffer such a fate?

Episode 1: Promise

Ready for a new year of school Keith's all geared up and ready to go, that is until he finds out that his spending money for the first half of the semester won't be available. Wanting to show his responsibility he gets a job through Derek, a friend from school who mostly keeps to himself. With the two suddenly spending time together, can Keith get his friend to open up to him? And if he does, what secrets will come out?

Whaat? You mean even if I pursue a guy, I'll still be forever alone? Wow, that should be saying something about my life. I hope it doesn't. (Then again, I don't do a lot of pursuing anyway.)

Opened for BL stayed for the interesting thread. Sorry to hear that you lost artists, though-- I'm a loner so I don't have such problems, luckily. Still, I'd love to see this come into fruition.

Speaking of which, with all these episodes-- do you intend to release them as one game or separate? Since you went rather specific, with the ep. 1 thing.

@ John Smith's "son of foreign diplomat". Children of diplomats are treated differently by the students? I didn't know that. I certainly feel normal, especially if no one talks to me. People don't get to know where you've been if they don't talk to you, y'know.
Just saying.

I'm glad to see such interest ;w; <3
One separate game each, then at the end I'm going to compile them all into one game and add bonuses to it.
For John, no one really knows what he really is, other than his name is bogus(it's not just the fact that it's John Smith, it's the fact that he also has trouble remembering to respond to it.) and he's a snob.

Hehe, it will take me a while to get to your demo (gotta go to my job and finish up some sprite stuff this week.)

Don't worry...just the fact you're making a B/B game is reason enough to praise it!!!
