A Walk in the Woods [Completed!]

Premise

"You’re walking in the forest. You don’t know particularly why you’re here, but it’s a nice enough day, so that aspect of this stroll doesn’t quite bother you."

You play as an unnamed protagonist who finds themselves walking in a forest. The forest is a large and dangerous place. It is up to you (the player)to choose where to explore and what to do. Be careful though, as many of your choices may end in death.

This game is more of a prequel than it is a stand alone game. I may make the other part of this story in the future, but right now I just wanted a simple VN to work on as practice.

Characters
Image
A demonesque wolf. Very hungry.
Image
A large stag. Found pinned to the ground by thorns.
Image
A person with mushrooms growing off of them. Doesn't like you very much.

Trigger Warnings
Warning for blood.
Explicit descriptions of death.
Namely:
Stabbing

The game will be R18 for its explicit violence. It has no sexual content though.

----------

I plan on using this thread for documenting my progress while making the game.
I'd also like feedback, as this will be my first project, and the whole reason for this projects being is for me to improve at making VNs.

Update:
Today I finished all of the backgrounds for the game.
I'll be trying to finish all, or at least half, of the CGs as well.

Here are some examples of the backgrounds, if anyone is interested.

Update!

I've finished all the CGs. Now I will go on to editing the script and programming.
Maybe I'll make a custom GUI, but I've never done that before, so I don't know.

Update!

I'm finally working through the code.
So far so good, but I'm super new so it might take a bit for me to finish up.

Here are some screen shots.

Not actual game content haha.

Update!

I'm finishing up the last bit of coding today!
coding!.png
Look at that sweet, sweet code
I plan on then making the GUI today as well, so expect another update later.
After that's all finish I will be releasing (for free of course, because the game is so simple)
The game is fairly simple and doesn't have much of a story, but so far it has been a really wonderful learning experience!

I definitely plan on making more games!
Hopefully in a team setting though :3c

Update!
Statistics:

The game contains 217 dialogue blocks, containing 2,929 words and 16,897
characters, for an average of 13.5 words and 78 characters per block.

The game contains 9 menus, 31 images, and 12 screens.
Yesterday I accidentally deleted my script, and I didn't have a backup, so I had to rewrite it.
Though I'm happy to say that the new script is a lot nicer and cleaner.
I've decided not to make a custom GUI, because I just want to release the game right away.
I'm currently making the game distributions, so A Walk in the Woods will be released today!!!
[applause]
