A story of overcoming communication barrier, earning trust and maybe find love...
Scholarship student Calvin is in a dilemma: He is in dire need of an assistant for his end year project. Most students in Gruvine University have a Mechanoid-a popular robot that look exactly like human- so professors always give assignments with short deadline. Being a country boy on a scholarship, he have to buy the cheapest one from the second-hand market Unfortunately, his new Mechanoid is full of flaws: speech device was broken, he can't access the internet from it, and it constantly misunderstand his orders! Now Calvin will have to try coping with a defective Mechanoid to deal with a looming end year project, bad money situation,rival problem, gaint robot attack(!?) and a sinister plot that he'd rather not be involved in.
A scholarship student of Gruvine University - the most famous university on advanced technology. Coming from a normal family in the country, he is extremely dedicated to his study, sometime to the point of being insensitive. He doesn't care much for others as long as he get his work done. Calvin believed that Mechanoid is just a tool, that's why he get irritated and lose his patience fast when dealing with Liam-his incompetent Mechanoid.
The second-hand Mechanoid Calvin bought. His AI was programed to be the obedient, submissive type ( personality was hard coded into the AI device so it's impossible to reprogram the Mechanoid personality), which is the main reason Calvin choose him. Liam can't talk, so the only way he could communicate is nodding or shaking his head when asked question, or show his answer on a holo screen activated by Calvin's voice. He try his best to please Calvin but often interpreting the orders wrong, and usually lament about his incompetence.
A rich boy from the same engineering department. He is playful, love partying and is somewhat of a slacker. He find Calvin's gruff behavior interesting and offered to be his friend. He os also the one who often get Calvin and Liam in trouble .
Calvin's self-proclaimed rival. He was beaten by Calvin in a mini robot competition and since then constantly provoke him to compete with him with the end year project. He is a Mechanoid fantanic, and surprisingly, the one who called out on Calvin's cold treatment to Liam the most. His favorite past-time is customizing Mechanoid.
An upper class student from the IT department, specialize in Mechanoid computing. She fix bugs, update custom driver or make special programing for other students' Mechanoid in exchange of a favor.It's rumored that she is a legendary hacker. Ethan is her regular visitor.
Cody's Mechanoid, who also act as his babysitter.
This game will be pure VN with choice affecting the out come. The story is a mix of slice-of-life and mystery. I have three ending planned, 2 standard ending and 1 true end. The choices will have some romance options mixed in to unlock some scenes if you choose to romance Liam.
Progress (the dreaded part)

-What do you think of the art?
-Does the summary intrigue you?
-Do you want BxB linked to the ending or just optional (like if you pick some choices along the way you would have additional romance scene)? (There will be a lot of bromance/borderline romance though)
-Do you have any suggestion on GUI?
