oh yeah, you guys must be wondering, "omg, ari where are you? what happened?"...
....

I've been working on concepts for the classroom but i can't seem to get perspective down. DON'T WORRY, i'll fix it. i'll fix all of it...

Super happy to see this is still being made!! Was really looking forward to it and got sad when I thought it was dropped haha In regards to the text box, it does look a little crowded imho The ctc image and overall concept is nice though. Just toning it down a bit might help but do you.

Good luck in chemistry ^^ Those were some of the darkest days of my science "career" for sure lol

This looks interesting. And it will refresh my acid- base knowledge. Bonus.

As for the textbox, I find it distracting. The complementary yellow and purple are jarring and bright. A less contrasting palette would be more comfortable. The purple shape of your box does not encompass all of your text either and could be a little small for your font size. The grey and yellow behind the purple, I also find clutters up your space. The day and time corner also feels rather detached from the menu due to despite sharing the same colours. Sorry for the bluntness.

However, what I do like is the fact you are trying something different witj the textbox shape and have outlined your text, increasing readability. The triangular hazard sign is a nice touch. Is it something that appears at the end of every sentence or part of the box?

Thanks! Hahaha, I hope it does help with that chemistry knowledge C;

I fixed the textbox to be more simple. Is this better?

I'm not sure what you mean about the day and time corner. How can I make it better? C: And I don't mind bluntness. I'd rather you be blunt than beat around the bush. It's very helpful, so thank you!

The hazard sign is a ctc, so it blinks after all the text has been displayed.

Yay! I'm glad someone is looking forward to this! It's my new year's resolution to finish this by the time i finish this semester hahaa... I have simplified the textbox, so please tell me what you think! C:

Also, thank you! I'll do my best in chemistry since I will have to "research" about it for this game.. >____>

I love how colorful this game is and the art style is really nice :3.

I personally think the simplified version of the text box is an improvement. It is still interesting and unique but is more functional.

I agree with Googaboga :) It now looks a lot more functionally. As previously stated, just make sure to incorporate the clock a little better and I think you'll be set.

Awesome ^^ Don't overlaid yourself man!

Much easier to read with! And it still keeps your unique clouds/smoke and touches of yellow! :)

Probably should have elaborated in the first post, but the time/day shape has little coherence to your dialogue box. The colours may match, but their shapes are really different and thus feel awkward. The time/day 'corner' only partially covers the text and should have its shape more boxlike or cloudlike (well dialogue box-like), rather than triangular.

Oh, so its called CTC. I never knew. Yeah, the hazard sign is a really cool choice for that.

the visuals greatly caught my attention (those sparkles and vivid colors <3 )

it's interesting, |'DDD
I don't particularly like Chemistry but the subject is really interesting.

not to mention, I can relate to the heroine. I needed tutors to improve my chem grades TTuTT <3

good luck on working though!!! <3 <3 <3
will be looking forward to this <3

I like most of it quite a bit ^^. The colors/shading looks especially nice. But the eyes seem a little off somehow. Maybe it's just because it's a close headshot.
