Mark's Story {BxB}{Friendship}{Romance} Demo up

Demo- http://www.mediafire.com/download/y33cz ... .0-all.zip

(Please note the demo is an early example. There is no GUI, music, and only one CG. That'll change in the full version of the demo which will have the entire common route.)

Story- With recently coming out, it’s as if a weight has finally been lifted off of his shoulders. However with now with his new life style Mark has come to learn that things will change for him; not only in his love life but also with those around him. Go through his story and see just how his new life will unfold with three guys him who also seem to have their own secrets and problems like everybody else.

Gameplay- Mark's story is a light hearted story focusing on a boy named Mark and three guys who he befriends. Each guy has there own path and dilemma, some routes being more dramatic then others. The story itself isn't mean to be a big drama story, but does focusing a bit on what's it's like coming out, though this plays more in a certain route.

Characters

Image

Mark- A chubby and lovable guy who has recently come out. With finally accepting who he is, Mark secretly longs to hopefully find a guy who will accept him for him, but is a bit afraid of doing so since he's never been good with dating. He's a bit of a childish and lazy guy, but is caring and tries his best. His hobbies are video games, swimming, and something secret which he keeps from others.

Image

Eren-Mark's best friend. He's accepted the fact that Mark likes guys though sometimes he gets a bit awkward when the subject comes up. Eren is very protective of Mark, despite him being the weakest in terms of strength. He cares deeply for Mark though and only wants the best of him, though sometimes he's a bit hard to handle. Eren is friendship, short tempered, and creative though sometimes his own ambitious take a tole on those around. He's currently unsure if he sees Mark as a friend or....something else.

Image

Kage- A new resident in the apartment complex. He quickly befriends Mark after a rather awkward encounter. Kage is the opposite of Eren; calm, cool, and always one to try and see the bright things in life. Sadly he's also someone who runs away from his problems and has a hard time dealing with his mistakes. Like Mark he is gay, but is more adventurous. He's hiding from a past which nearly destroyed his family.

Image

Kane- Kage's older brother. He works as a bartender and waiter at the Lotus Bar. Kage is diligent, hard working, and at times serious though he's easy to fluster. Currently he's watching over Kage, but he hopes his brother will finally grow up. When not making drinks, Kage has a secret hobby that's he's embarrassed about others finding out, especially his brother.
Like Mark, Kage isn't good with romance, but he does have a certain type...he likes. Mark's a good example of what that is.

Features:
~Three Routes with two ends
~Light hearted story
~Likable mc
~Many choice options
~Because character art

Notes- Mark's story is set to be a relatively short and light hearted game, but focuses on some important things. Though light hearted the story will have it's drama and may not be very comical. Also as you can see Mark isn't your normal BxB mc. I know that may be a put off for some, but I want to add something new to the VN world and hopefully give a more positive image on different body types.

As for progress the common route is finished, about 23,000 words, and once I code it all in I'll show it to people. Right now I do have a small demo up of the first half of the game to give people a look at on what the game is going to do. Note this demo is new and may have some bugs or mistakes. I'll fix that in the full version.

Let me start by saying all of them look so cuuuuuute!! Especially Mark! He looks like a precious cinnamon bun and I already want him to just be happy oh my gosh ;___; His love interests look like cool guys to have him hold hands with. Aaaahhh I wish I had enough free time to play the demo, the premise looks adorable, and I can't wait until I have some elbow room to play it! I'll definitely come back with solid feedback once I do, though!

It has been a few weeks since the last update. I'm hoping that this story is still a work in progress, and that it will be finished in the near future.

I consider the main character sympathetic. He seems to be an ordinary flawed person with plausible insecurities.

If the two characters stay just friends, would that be a good ending? A bad ending? Or somewhere in between?
