Progress & Development
** MESSAGE ME IF YOU WANT TO BE A BETA READER/PLAYER.**
The Monarchy of Hyalus opted to work on its own education system, trusting on the success rate of Occiden's previous projects. Prince Siegfried of the Occiden Monarchy had planned to attend the school himself, but due to Eosos's Fall, he has chosen to continue with home tutoring since the flexibility of it allows him to tend to the concerns of his people.

- Art and story will all be made by me.
- Music will be by Chris Thurman and funded through commission work.
- Completed game will be available on itch.io.
Risks & Challenges.
- Programming still gives me a headache, but I'm still up for a challenge.
- I get really busy with school, so progress will be slow until mid-May.
- -> I couldn't finish in time for the jam. Hope to release in Summer 2017.
- -> First draft is completed with 25096 words!
- I would really love to have an OST for this.
- -> I found a musician!
- -> I'm about half-way through meeting my music budget, so I would appreciate it if you would commission me or help in circulating that post!
- -> Well. Ever since I decided to add more info, I increased the word count by about 10k. Honestly should have seen this coming. I am fighting myself as I type.
- This will be pay-as-you-want. AKA, technically free, but I would really appreciate if you donate some money since I need to for reasons as explained by my commission post.
- I really thought about making this a choice-based game with multiple ends, buuuut I have time constraints and I'm a one-woman team.
- I'm basing the guard program on high school JROTC, so if any of y'all have any info on that, I would love to know it.
- This takes place in the same universe as Sunrise Revolution! There will be cameos in each game because I love interconnectivity.
- -> Chronologically, Kiss Me Not takes place about four years before the start of Sunrise Revolution, so I'm focusing on finishing this project first.
- I'll be looking for beta readers once I finish editing! Please message me if you're interested.
1. The jam lasts for a month, but if this was expanded beyond that, would you like to have choices and have multiple endings?
2. What do you look forward to the most?
3. Any additional feedback?
This has been fun to work on so far, and considering that school is pretty much wrapping up for the summer now, I hope to be even faster when working on this! I'll have an art stream set for this VN some time during the week!
Thank you for your support and for looking at this thread!
