Some people go a long way to find themselves
Coming soon, from the Hanabira line. The protagonists:
Default names Flynn and Malia, though you can change their names if you like. They are nineteen-year-old university students from New York City who don't know what they want out of life, or even what there is to want. To broaden their horizons and learn more about the world, they sign up for a semester abroad in London. Which one gets there, of course, depends on who you choose to play.
When you arrive in England, you will be staying at a student hostel as part of a work-study program. Along with classes, you have a part-time job assigned, most of which goes to pay for your lodging, but will still give you enough spending money to have fun and get to know the other students living with you. There are eight possible love interests in this game:
Datable by male or female protagonists:
While he is a student too, he also acts as sort of an unofficial dorm-father in the hostel the PC is staying in. Helpful, handy, not afraid of some manual labor, and generally a bit more rugged than the male LIs I usually create.
An excitable first-year uni student and a bit of a tomboy. Quite short, but she makes up for it in SHEER DETERMINATION. Also prone to very colorful language.
Appears to be a bit of a nerd. He reads a lot, and he doesn't always know how to act in a social situation. His honesty may be offputting to the people around him, but he just wants to help...
An artist from South Korea staying at the hostel. Serious about her work, though it may not make any sense if she tries to explain it to others.
Datable only by male protgaonists:
A London-born girl who loves the nightlife and will drag the male PC around to dance clubs.
A sweet and bubbly girl who works as a bartender and is very talented.
Datable only by female protagonists:
An Italian student with a baby face and a sense of old-fashioned chivalry.
A fellow American exchange student. Brendon is from Florida and used to life on the beach.
And that's really most of what you need to know! It's a light comedy romance/slice-of-life game about an American exchange student going to England for a semester, trying to reinvent themselves and learn a little more about the world while hopefully landing a boyfriend/girlfriend. Of course, there will be some bumps along the road, and not everything is guaranteed to end happily, but such is life.
Current status: the written script is complete and in the process of being coded. The sprites and backgrounds are finished. CGs and other extra art touches are currently in progress. The game should be out in the spring, unless life gets in the way.
