Merpeople! Awesome! So glad this project is continuing. I've followed the Tumblr. It's all looking awesome so far! The animations are great, just that extra bit will probably make for a nicer VN!

I'd be honoured if you used it! :D
With regards to the timeline, I'd recommend at least one month, just for the sake of being realistic.
I'd also suggest leaving a second demo for later? Occasional CG's make for good sustenance and I am very happy to wait. :)

If you need anyone to beta-test though, I'd be more than happy to. ;o; You've done so much for me and Deji we can't thank you enough. Game looks awesome <3
**hugs Kitty** Yea, you're right - it's definitely better to wait till the game is closer to completion. We just feel guilty for everyone's been faithfully waiting and painfully waiting for our snail speed progress D:

We'll definitely cat-nap you as soon as we've got something to beta-test! Get ready for the sleepless night :twisted: :mrgreen:

I love the new art---especially the backgrounds and the CGs! Well done!
Thanks so much for you patience *drowns in tears of gratitude*

So glad you like the direction of our art rendezvous! :D

Erikka wrote:You did a wonderful job!
I was laughing from the CG where Malik is biting MC's hand)))
Can't wait to read the scenes where MC is asking mermaids how they reproduce!)) It's very interesting and funny subject) Now I think that this game is going to be even more great!
This game is of a rom-com genre, but I sure hope we didn't emphasize too much on the comedy/gag side! ... Ah, don't worry, we make sure to include lots of lovey dovey sweet otome moments. Maybe. Probably. Yep, we did.

We actually spent a lot of time having intellectual, academical discussion and research on how the merfolk would procreate. Promise you'll like our final decisions :mrgreen:
Erikka wrote:I also think that 6 days deadline will make the romance too rush. I personally don't believe it's possible to fall in love so quickly. How about 6 weeks? Or at least 3 weeks?) Then it's more realistic)
Thanks for your input! Definitely taking this into consideration :)

Thanks so much for you love <3 Unfortunately, it's impossible to post a release date as both Arowana and I are working fulltime :( We will try our very best to release it as soon as possible (before we turn into grandmas) We should be able to release a small surprise for you all in a few months, fingers crossed! You can follow our Tumblr where we post the updates regularly :D

Thanks for the love and for following our Tumblr :D We will work very hard not disappoint! :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Hurray! Thanks for giving permission <3 <3 <3
Thanks for your input! We're working around to see how we can revise the timeline instead of following the original Little Mermaid timeline XD Also working hard to include as many CGs as it's humanely possible for lil old lazy me :)

The art is stunning and those animations are incredible!

OMG, there's still so much love... Now I definitely feel guilty for the lack of updates >_< Thanks you so much for still believing in us and patiently waiting for our updates! *drowns in tears of happiness*

Sorry for our tendency to... disappear for months in between updates OTL Please do follow our Tumblr for latest updates! I'll give a brief update over here as well.

Since a picture speaks a thousand words... Have a snippet collections of in game CGs. Hope you guys like it! :D
Image
Some screenshots we already showed on Tumblr but not here yet...
And you can ask Jack questions on Tumblr too!
Image
Currently, all game graphic assets are done, except for the CGs (approximately 20ish more to go!)
Writing is probably at around 50% done, clocking at approximately 230k words.
Coding for GUI and game features are 100% done too! :D Maybe except for certain bonus features which we're still wondering if we should include.

It's been a long journey, thank you for your continuous support - which is the reason we're still working hard on this project! We hope to be able to release this game as soon as possible too!

Cheers 8)

Hey, I'm curious about one thing. I know that the demo is released for now, but when the full version comes out, is it still free or what? Anyways, the game seems to be really interesting!

@sayakon-

I have played this demo on my iMac several times with no problems, but just to be on the safe side, I just redownloaded the demo and tried it again. No problems, so perhaps the problem is with your machine, or maybe you should try to download it again?

Hi, thanks for giving the game a try and liking it! :D The full version of the core game will definitely be free, as we've promised! However, due to lack to funding, we might look into selling a Deluxe version or run a Kickstarter campaign to fund the extra features we hope to implement in the games to enhance the players' experience! Thanks for your support :)

I'm so sorry about that! D:

What is your Mac OS, if I may ask? Also, are you able to select the buttons using arrows/keys instead of mouse? This is very troubling, as I can't imagine what's wrong >_< Please let me know more details! Thanks

@Nellie
Ah. I downloaded 2 more times and the second time it worked with the arrow keys \(^ω^\)( /^ω^)/ Thank you very much! (*^▽^*)
I'm so sorry for the griefs I caused m( _ _ )m

And the art and other stuff (don't know technical terms for all the moving thingies) is amazing! I would definitely buy the Deluxe version when it comes out ヽ(`∀´)ノ


@ philip
Thank you so much too!! ☆⌒(* ゜▽ ゜)
