Squee! Me wants, me wants very much! I love, love mysteries and escape games! Also, as a wearer of alternative fashion I am happy to finally see a more creative/appealing MC clothing style (at least to me). This looks fantastic in so many ways! Can't wait! :D

Hehe, I'm glad you like the look of this game! I'm sure you'll enjoy it if you like mysteries XD


Also, now seems like a good time to announce, but this will be commercial.
Don't worry, it's not going to be a lot, just £5 ($7.40) since I'm having to spend money, and the OST will be released for free (along with wallpaper).

Speaking of OST, we're more than half way with it!
Two new tracks

Yess, more point and click/escape/puzzle games. Those are my absolute FAVORITE. I just played Y;N and it was awesome, so if this game is inspired by that, then I just know it'll be great.
And of course, the art being beautiful surely helps make me excited! You didn't say much about the story, though. So I'm wondering if this game is going to emphasize gameplay more than the story?

It's not so much that it doesn't focus on the story (it does, a lot), but I felt like saying any more would have ruined it ;)

This is the correct way to go at it. In the case of horror, it really is better to tell the story within the atmosphere set in the game, and not at as a synopsis. I still pity a fool for reading the entire story of Saya from TVTropes rather than actually reading it.

Hints and clues are nice though. Screenshots of stuff like the clickables and bits of the environment.

Don't worry, that bit's coming once I get a BG artist :)

Also: music is now 83% done. Just one more and I'll be ready to release it as a product (for free).

Oh wow, I love Chloe's design. Like, really, really love.
Now I wonder what else she has in her closet...

The music sounds lovely; definitely giving an eerie, mysterious feel.
I also like seeing games cover darker topics like death and suicide, so I'm curious to see what you're going to do with that.
Can't wait to see more! <3

My goodness Chloe's design is popular XD I'm sure that's going to make Accha happy :3
I like the music as well~ And I'm glad it gives that vibe, exactly what I was going for XD

On a BG note, currently talking to an artist~ I won't say who, but hopefully, you guys will like there art XD

Good to know! I'm pretty sure I will like this game too. ;)

It seems fair that this will be commercial; it looks very high quality and well-executed. Will you have a demo?

Yes. It'll contain the 1st (of 3) chapter. I've pushed the full game release back to about January and the demo will be out in September.

Thanks~

Progress is steaming away, Accha is working on something secret, Joshua is working on the last track for the OST, talked to BG artist (the last one I talked to, it turned out his style didn't really fit) and I think we might be working together (though BG's won't be worked on until mid-June), and the GUI is under-way (thanks Hijiri!) and should be done soon.

Quick update:

2 CG's have been commissioned and I've decided to do a Kickstarter for this project so the game can be high quality.
