Considering it's sounds like an extra gimmick.

Better to save yourself some time and keep it as one whole outfit so the coding is easier and faster to manage.

Though if customization will be a big thing for the game, a 3 piece outfit (head, top, bottom) should be enough. 5 would work to if you wanna put in the effort (head, top, bottom, hands (cuffs, gloves), feet(shoes, boots)). Plus a random accessory for styles sake.

As for your question, I think seperated parts of the outfits are good! I mean it only makes a small difference in both programming and drawing >w< ( A bit more work) But that way you can still have a whole outfit! Ppl can either choose to wear the outfits the way they are or mix and match them 8DDD (Which I will do for the "You look weird" comments!!! //slapped 8D)
I think this is a really cute idea btw XD Just...mentioning //slapped out of window
xDD meeeerh my yaoi fangirl is showing >w<

And yea, that's the most fun I think xD I think I'll end up doing head item, shirt, pants, shoes, accessory.

Pretty much xD I always like putting things I personally like in my games, so its mostly just a for fun feature.

Yaaaay~ Quests! :D

1. Very much so - I look forward to it. ^-^
2. Not at all.
3. Absolutely not! I like RPG's that include romantic elements, so I also like VNs that include RPG elements.
4. I'd like to see how a romantic relationship between Lilie and Fenris would turn out. I'm not sure. >.<

Yaaay I'm the same way xD Lilie and Fenris huh, that one I hadn't considered. We'll see what happens as I get more into character routes xD BTW I saw your project in the idea thread (I think?) and loved it. :D I look forward to seeing more as you get stuff done!

Leslie is done! Gonna try and continue this once a day thing. It goes faster since I don't have to account for changing outfits. Leslie is officially my favorite TuT

Thanks! I'm deviating from my usual method of coloring and lineart a bit so it's been super fun to draw these sprites. ^^

The script is coming along too! I've added a lot of interaction with the characters. Well, I don't know if its a lot, but its there xD plus some fun scenes and what little story development there can be during the sort of 'tutorial' stage... the first chapter will take place over the course of three days, and will include (hopefully) two romance affecting side quests, two other optional side quests for money, two purchasable hats for Lilie, two purchasable earrings for Aldrich, three predetermined tutorial battles, two purchasable weapons, two purchasable items, the introductions of six characters other than lilie and Aldrich, and actual interactions with four of those characters.

Once I have everything done for Lilie's version, I'll release a demo and see what people think is missing, what I should take out, etc. With how things are going, and NaNoRenO coming up, I think I'm going to go ahead and say a demo should be done by the end of May at the latest... so excited!

Slow and steady, slow and steady. Nano is coming along well~

Here are a few updates:
Fenris and Santana are completed~
I have a few more ideas for gameplay and how I want to go about doing the romance part. I'm thinking in each chapter the romanceable characters will have a story arc for players to complete, and this increases their affection. If players don't find all their story arcs throughout the game or don't complete it they won't see the 'romantic' end, but might get a friendship or rival one, depending. I also want to do smaller story arcs, really more like mini quests for the other characters so you can learn more about them/befriend them. I really want the characters to matter, and a lot of the story arcs are important to the main story anyway, so it shouldn't feel like I just shoved them in. Still trying to figure out the best way to go about it, but I'm working along!
