Newest update- added general coding to completion lists, and an example of sprite progress!

Hey there!

I really like the thought of the realism you want to put into this, with the process of regaining memories and how decisions
will affect your character's perception. (That part is especially cool! Can't wait to play around with that.)
I can definitely see how this could make for some very interesting scenes. Whose to say the memories are real or fake, after all?
And fake memories are real, for sure. Your brain can totally create false memories, and I can name a few of my own, lol. xD

The idea is certainly interesting. I'm a big fan of psychological fiction and I'm certainly not opposed to having that bundled
together with a murder(?) mystery. :- >

Not sure if this is a murder mystery though, since you never specifically
state that the death was related to murder. Hmm... (puts her thinking cap on and scratches chin)

The artwork is very lovely, too! I really like Red-Baby's art style and Shortycake's chibis. >w< <3
I'm looking forward to seeing this project's progress~

Yeah I agree with you whole-heartedly, my friend. Many fake memories here...
Anyway- I'm stoked that you like the realism! I wanted to mess with the perception of the main character, while the player knows a little more than that. I figure that the first play through the player does will be the most honest- but maybe not the correct one. There are lies and truths that the main character can't know all at once- so when the player does... Well I'm sure there'll be conflicts of opinion.

Ahahaa... To be honest the majority of the story will be figuring out what you know, remember and think about the other characters. While finding the 'truth', you also have the ability to grow attached to them... What I'm trying to say is please don't forget the romance aspect! But yes I hope the mystery around the death does mix well.

I'm blessed to be working with Red-Baby, and Shortycake was an angel the whole time they worked with me. Red-Baby and I keep in contact all the time, and we're doing our best to deliver!

Updated! Now that a large majority of the tedious coding is "out of the way", I can focus nearly entirely on writing! The word-count as of right now is 8000, but I expect it will climb much more rapidly with the clear skies ahead!

Hey guys- updated information!
There are going to be casual sprites for meetings outside of school (including the hospital at the beginning of the game...)
I hope everyone can appreciate the wonderful work Red-Baby is putting into this game!
There is so much love and effort in her work, I couldn't do it without her!
If you'd like to see examples of the casual outfits- follow the link below!
You can find her FB group here!

What an interesting story! I'm definitely bookmarking this. Wish I could help in some way.

Nonetheless, I'm looking forward to its release.

I'm happy to hear that!

I'll be looking for testers soon, if you're willing you can PM me about that?
The only bad thing about that is that portions of the story may be 'spoiled' for you, before the entire game is finished.

Thank-you so much for the bookmark, and your support! We're all doing our best here!

Oml I can't wait to crush your hopes and dreams about Caleb.
... It's not that I want to disappoint, it's just that he's not as nice as he'd like you to believe.
