I'll definitely check out the demo when its ready. No pressure :3

I'm intrigued with the premise and the art is so warm and beautiful. The teaser CG looks really sweet too.

I'm glad!! But what is this about not being able to download D8? Is the link broken or are you getting an error message?

Haha! uvu" Was expecting this sort of reaction! Hope it was still a somewhat enjoyable read though! I'll await your PM. I've already gotten some feedback from euphorics about things I can fix (sprite size is off so it jumps a bit, used an old version for the angry sprite, typos after the first scene and the last SFX going on for too long), so will try to polish that up sooner rather than later.
~~~

In other news, I've just gotten word that the second original piece is coming along nicely and the artist is working at those CGs! I'm about finished with the base story(won't update the word count till I've typed it into the doc) and am contemplating how choices, if added, would pan out.

Aside from things I will defiantly add one way or the other(GUI, etc.), I'm still looking into more ways to spice up the narrative. I don't want to go wild though even with a demo out rest assured haha! I tend to see projects dumped after a demo release after all. But I was thinking about maybe partial voice-acting and or a bonus section after all the ends are tied together and finalized. More on that when I'm not half sleep and actually have a game plan/a definite vision. Till then!

Cool and I have some ideas but would love to know how to make GUI/get help. All the commonly cited tutorials confuse me and seemingly only me so all that trial and error doesn't look appealing.

Did you still want me to edit that chunk as I was under the impression you wanted to re-write it... (>~<)?

I played the demo and...argh! I want to see what happens! Seriously, you guys caught my interest; I'm definitely looking forward to the full version of the game now.

I saw something up there about downloading problems; I have a Windows OS, and I didn't have any trouble running the game, just so you know.
My first completed visual novel, which is at 1.3, it's final version(woo hoo!): Monster Uses CPU 2
Finally at version 1.0: White Fog

You might ask yourself: If I could only save one paragraph of the work I'm writing, which one would I save?
Which one would I let go first?

I tried but when it's finished there's a message telling it's not commonly downloaded and if I keep it it might be dangerous :s So I had no choice but to discard it. Or do you need me to screenshot it?

Tehe, thanks for being so supportive when we're being so mean! I'll be more than happy to get the finished product to ya' soon enough and then it's on to the next one... in the series. And our other games... *dies*

I see, thanks for telling me. I think i've found the answer to...

problem. Here's a link that should help ==> http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/ie/f ... ce8a293e92

I think it's because it's not commonly downloaded rather than it's full of viruses. If you still feel uncomfortable downloading, don't force yourself too! Haha, thanks for bringing this up to me too uvu

~~~

In other news, I've been given a little more feedback to share:
- Child loses their country twang at times
- 'Demo' is around 5~8 Minutes max to read, so extremely short
- Message seems to be getting across okay

I'll be starting major work on the script soon and should be done with a good portion (5/7 Scenes) by the end of the month at the latest. Word Count is hovering around 6,000~7,000 as of now.

I'm a bad teacher orz I can't even make fine work myself so I don't think I get anywhere far if I teach someone. 0u0 Don't worry, it's simple once you're used to it. If you have a GUI idea in mind, just tell me, I'll design after your description anyway.

orz Probably not because I'm revamping the game. I'm still need to turn it to my own game first hehehe

The premise sounds amazing! I love friendship stories, even bittersweet ones. And art is really beautiful! You've got a good combination!
