@chiharuchi and kistnerelizabeth Thank you for your comments and encouragement! We're all really enjoying making this game so far and we hope you continue to support us!!

The main casts first sprites have been finished! This includes Ivor and Ronan who are potential routes depending how it goes when we go up on kickstarter.

We're now over two thirds of the way through the common route, and I'm confident we can have a demo up sometime around Oct/Nov.

For your enjoyment, here is a bigger view of the main cast =)

I am in love with the outfits of your characters! It's so other worldly and charming. Really enjoy the vibrant colours and animalistic ears too. The colour schemes fit the characters well, too!

I do think that the clothes of our main character are a bit too dull compared to everyone else. The contrast is especially jarring if you put her next to Ivor. Every character has lightly coloured parts (be it hair, parts of the outfit or a lot of openly shown skin), while our protagonist seems like a grey mouse in comparison due to the dark green and blue of her clothes and the equally dark hair colour. Aside from that little nitpicking I really enjoy the art style, though. Love the Menu Screen too.

My favourite character so far is Ivor, but I'm always a sucker for relationships where one character acts as a sort of guide/protector for the other. Design wise I adore Octavius.

@Cirrocumulus-Cloud Hey! I'm really glad you like the designs. I spent a lot of time on them (maybe more then I should have, haha.) In regards to Kamilly's outfit, I do see what you are saying, but I guess she really isn't a flashy gal so I wanted something more neutral in terms of her colours. This is just her first outfit in any case and the second one is a lot brighter in scheme.
Ivor is my fav so I'm glad he's getting some love!
Thank you for your comments and feedback =)

@Zelan I'm glad you like it! It's a great sample of what the CGs will be like and also a sneak preview of the main casts second outfits.

Long time, no update! Been very busy both with the project and in real life but I'm back now!
First of all, a lot of assets have been completed in the interim, including six backgrounds and all of the second outfit sprites. Novclow is currently working on the second pose for all the characters so there will be variety in game. Depending how things go, I may end up adding additional sprites for minor characters which will add some depth as well.
Secondly, writing has been advancing at a steady pace. The outline for Leon's route is completed, and writing has begun. Otto's outline is also mostly finished now, the details are just being finalised. I have been dragging my feet a little on writing Nairn's route outline and getting stuck in but I always find something else I want to fix quickly before I start *sigh*
Anyway! Thank you for all your continued support, and enjoy these background previews =)

All these backgrounds look great! Also that first background reminds me of a Camelot image.

@Valhalla-

Just finished my first go through of your story on my mac. It is visually very appealing; the backgrounds and sprites are wonderfully done. The story is interesting and I look forward to reading the conclusion. I find myself liking all the characters, they are who they are and their differences in personality are what moves the story forward.

A couple of technical comments: It is difficult to see the status of things in the GUI, whether something is "ON" or "OFF" is not apparent. Shouldn't it change in color, or shading to make the choice clear? Also, I am hoping that you will addd more SAVE slots; I like to save at each choice so that I can easily go back and try another path.

A very nice job so far!

@philip
Thanks for playing the demo and leaving us some feedback! The menu buttons color was something that I had noticed after putting out the demo. The colour change is a lot more subtle then I originally thought, and it will be adjusted for the final release. Regarding the save files I'm actually a little confused what you mean. There is eight slots per page but I have it set so that you can use the 'previous' and 'next' buttons to have nearly limitless slots available to save in.

Thanks again for the feedback!

@Valhalla-

Thank you for your reply. As regards the save slots, I have eleven, not eight, and I don't see a "previous" or "Next"button anywhere. Sorry to be so slow, but I am a little confused. I am playing your story on my mac.
