Urgh I've not been doing a good job of keeping this thread updated, I'm so sorry! Just a few highlights:

+ We announced the voice acting cast; Spirit Parade will have full voice acting!
+ We uploaded a demo of the mini-game as a bonus for everyone who pre-orders
+ We've committed to updating our production diary weekly on Sundays

We don't have one yet because we don't want to commit to a date without absolute confidence that we'll be able to deliver it on that date, but we'll announce it when we do decide on one! It should be pretty soon, though.

Thank you! Yes, that's where we got the inspiration for the title. Good catch!

I'm so excited for this game it looks amazing! I'm really interested in Nara (especially since she's the heroine, whoa), since you guys won't just be sweeping her disability under the rug once she gets to the spirit world. I'm interested to see her character development throughout the story since I have multiple friends suffering with physical disabilities and I've seen how it's changed them.
Thank you so much for your support. We're trying to be very careful with her portrayal because we want to be considerate and realistic, but not patronizing or dumbing down her issues at all. Hopefully you all enjoy seeing Nara develop in the full game!

You asked for UI feedback in the first post, but I don't know if you still are. I had nothing really to say though, you picked a good legible font, I'm not straining to make out words, which is good for VNs. The colouring of some of the text could be a tad light to be sitting on the background (noteably here - http://40.media.tumblr.com/cc193225bfd9 ... 8_1280.png) I think it's because it's the same colouring as the pattern texture in the background which is pretty detailing that I'm ultimately meant to ignore. I also expect if I'm in Options, for Options to be highlighted (or darkened/underlined/pink? etc) in the menu on the left. I'm totally nitpicking though, I think it all looks really awesome.

Can't wait to play :)
Thank you!! We'll definitely take your critique into consideration and see if there's other colors we might be able to go with.

I've just read in your blog:
"Will it be entirely family friendly (a game I could share with a 10 year old) or will there be some risqué business?"

O_o :?
This made me facepalm.
Like why would 10 year old kid want to read an otome game(!) ?? :?: :D

I understand that this game isn't going to have 17+ or 18+ rating(though I think it would be really great if it had :)) but I hope it's not going to be a game for small kids neither. I do hope it will have some "risqué business")

I simply loved your demo! And not only because of the beautiful graphics or interesting characters. Mostly because the main girl was so much like me! I don't have leg problems or anything, but her outlook on life reminds me of my own. It was very satisfying when I pursued Black Impertinence (mistake intended ;p) answering him as if I was there and he replied favorably (or at least I think it was so). I'll buy your game for sure ^-^

It's hard for me to buy commercial games most of the time, but I think I'll try to get this one when it comes out. Nara seems very interesting, and I have a certain fondness for protagonists in romance stories that have a cynical attitude. Since romance is usually so idealized, I like anything which subverts those expectations a little bit.

Is there a walkthrough/guide. I see endings/routes for "underworld" but haven't figured out how to get there.
