Hey! This is my first game and it is mainly to help me get a handle of the Ren'Py system! Still, I plan on posting it and look forward to getting feedback and making more games. Especially since the GxG department of completed games is lacking. Though my goals were much more ambitious I do like the way this game is turning out.
About the game
Game featuresYou play as Jennifer, a high school student getting ready for the Valentines' day dance. You go through school and develop a better relationship with one of three girls to eventually work up the courage to ask them to the dance (or have them ask you, really, who knows?). What will come of young love?
CharactersThe game has 3 obtainable girls, all of them are unique. The game will have 9 endings. There are no bad ending with the girls, only a good and a best ending. In the game, every class but art class is optional. Not attending class could get you an event and attending class could also get you an event. Careful, missing classes could have consequences as well.
Jennifer, our protagonist. Like every good (debatable) protagonist, she lost her mother at a young age. She doesn't let that get to her though and often uses humor to make her feel better about situations.
Ellen has been Jennifer's best friend since they were little. The two share everything! Well...not everything. They do share a sense of humor though, and more often than not find themselves laughing at the same things. Ellen may be close to Jennifer but she has her reasons for never getting too close. Ellen is crude and brash, those who don't know her well tend to get offended by what she has to say.
Sara is the smartest in the class. She can be a little shy and hard to understand but she means well. Unfortunately, Sara has built up walls, afraid of letting people in and allowing them to get to know her. She really isn't so shy or sweet but not many know that. Sera is ambitious and competitive though she suffers from a low self-esteem which holds her back from doing what she wants.
Maya is the school's princess. She's the daughter of a millionaire and consequently extremely popular. Jennifer can't stand her and isn't afraid of letting people know. Maya is scary, mainly because she's aware of her faults and shortcomings and isn't afraid of ensuing Jennifer's insults. She thoroughly enjoys picking on Jennifer and apparently cares little for what our protagonist thinks. Cold, daunting, and prim, Maya is the last person Jennifer would want to ask to the dance.

What I would like to know:
Are you guys interested in this? Based on what you see, would you play this?
This is my first project, is there anything I should know?
Based on what you have seen, how can I improve?
I am horrible at code, is there any useful things I should know to make this better?
