I understand what you're going through when you say you've put your blood, sweat, and tears into your project. Working hard to save money and collecting your own resources you have my respect for all your work! I'm pretty much going through the same thing but I'm not able to save even a penny and spend money risking food or gas for the week to try and fund my project. It's not the easiest but working for something you love is always worth it.

The storyline seems promising and the art is amazing. I wish you the best of luck on this, let me know if you need someone to proofread or anything I'd be glad to!

Looks nice, I don't much about Canadian conspiracies but what you've told me of this project seems interesting. Hurry up with a demo!

Oh ! I was wondering when I'd see a WIP thread about your project ^^
This does seem intriguing, you've got me curious :)
Hmm.. While I do have experience in going through others' text, I've only gone so far as to make suggestions and minor adjustments. Not sure I'd be able to be an editor full time as I'm scheduled to help out in.. stuff, but feedback and idea bouncing should be fine.
Anyway, feel free to contact me should you need something.
I'm very interested in seeing where this is going ! :D
Good luck ! :wink:

Glad to see this thread up and going. I also think the work you are putting into this is admirable. And I hope for this project to exceed all expectations and then some.

Of course, Karga is my favorite character. I look forward to reading about her being a boss at bartending and life in general. things)

The art looks really cute, and I'm happy to see so many poses! And oh my god self-photographed backgrounds? Dedication!

I'm also curious because mystery and psychological-thrillers are pretty cool <3! I haven't seen many projects of this quality with such a genre.

Good luck with this, you can do it!

edit: holy crap this is a long game, best of luck! This will take a lot of dedication and time.

This premise sounds so interesting - I love conspiracy theories - and the art is good quality. But more than anything what interests me is your dedication and hard work you've put into this project! I know that the final product will be amazing if you have worked (and are still working) so hard. It's easy to see in someone's work when they have put a lot of heart into it. ^^
I really admire your commitment. Good luck finishing this, I can't wait to play it!

wow. :) This does look good. I'm glad I came to this thread.
I don't often go outside my WIP thread. But XD I saw that TeaCup liked this thread and I thought if someone named TeaCup likes this then I should really check it out. So thanks, both of you.
(Kagra Frederique, 3 outfits on one character? That seems like a lot of work- good for you. Ahh, and she has more problems than just typical teenaged angst, that's really honestly pretty refreshing.)
I'll watch this thread.

I don't know if I'd be a reliable editor, but I'd really like to be a guy who you can bounce ideas off of in the future.

This looks great, and I love the unique concept! It's amazing how dedicated you are to this project. Being a Canadian who's been to Quebec a lot of times myself, I'm really excited to see how this will turn out! If you ever need any voice actors/singers for anything, I'd be more than happy to audition or help out in any way I could C:

I'm guessing this is being made with Nscripter? Or are you copying the style in renpy? The story line is intriguing; I just hope I'll be able to play it on my computer when you finish. :lol:

I can't even image writing around 66 hours worth of reading..... what kind of word count would that even be? How far are you into writing it?

We are imitating Nscripter within RenPy.

The current BG count for Arc 1 are 842 different filtered photos I had to edit manually. Surprisingly enough, that is only a tiny fraction compared to all the photos I've actually taken for the VN.

Edit: As of Sep 21st 2013, I have 10,000 different photographs I've taken for this VN.

The Higurashi influence is pretty heavy in this, but I liked Higurashi, so I'm looking forward to seeing where this goes.

My favorite genres. I'll stalk this, if you don't mind. I wish you good luck!
