Wow, I like January a lot! He's got a really interesting character, and I really look forward to seeing him develop throughout the VN.

(I think Seer x January is officially my BrOTP, by the way. They just seem like they'd be pretty chill just hanging out. Kea's still my #1, though. owo)

Thanks for always commenting on the updates, Zelan ^v^.

Haha, I'm glad you think so. The game spends a good amount of time having Seer hang around people other than their FS. I would definitely suggest playing through the game with two different people as the FS even if you only love one character. Seeing them interact with Seer just as an unconnected stranger is rather fun (plus each character will have at least one friendship CG so you can't complete their gallery unless you play for part of the game with them not as the FS).

Oh, I'm really glad to hear that! ^_^ I always like it when games don't forget about the other characters involved; it's just not realistic, especially with the plot that you have with everyone traveling as a group. And I've always had a soft spot for friendship CGs.

Yep, these guys can't avoid each other even if they want to (and some of them do X3).

I'm also a fan of friendship CGs. If possible I'd like to include two for each character, but we'll see.

A quick update; the character sprites are done and have been added to the game. That means the initial demo is very nearly completed. It needs some fixing to how the GUI is programmed, I have to add music to the different scenes, the CGs need to be started (the CGs in the initial demo will be unfinished), and it'll need to be tested by people other than me. All that should, hopefully, take two weeks or so.

But, yeah, if anyone is interested in going through the game once the music is set and the GUI is fixed, please let me know. The time for testing is fast approaching :].

I'd like to test the game, but I'm going to be on vacation for two weeks (from July 1st to July 16th), so I'd only be able to test if you'd be willing to wait for me to get back. I'm not sure how long you think it'll take to put the demo together so let me know about it. c:

The first post has been updated to reflect how close the demo is to being done. Also I posted a few screenshots from Kea's prologue on the dev blog-

Thank you so much for offering! Unless something big happens to halt production, the demo should be ready quite awhile before you get back. I'm sorry. But, if you'd like, there's still the longer demo. That should be tested in late July or early August :>.

I'll definitely be up for the longer demo, then! ^_^ Good luck finding others to test the first demo.

Re: A Foretold Affair [Steampunk-Fantasy Adven][?xG/B/X]Test

We're now officially looking for people to go through the game's initial demo! Here are the details on the version being tested:
-It is 20,000 words long (approximately 1.3-2 hours of playtime overall)
-It covers the game’s prologues and the very start of the main adventure
-You get to choose your love interest, Normal name, and pronouns. There are no regular choices
-The sprites, backgrounds, soundtrack and GUI are all basically finalized
-It is missing CGs and sound effects
-There are a few hiccups with how some things function

Let me know if you're interested in giving it a go :D
