Update 2/2:

Big update time! (okay, it's only really a big update because I kept delaying updating the thread...) The updates include music, sound effects, new quick menu, edited character art, and more. So, let's get started!

For one, here's a look at one of the rooms in the forest map!

Image

And here's some new screenshots featuring the new quick menu.

Image

Lastly, I have a preview of the opening scene ingame!

And I'll throw this one in as well- it's a WIP of one of the CGs from the demo, where Kotachi meets the mysterious girl V.

Update 12/22:

Been a while since I updated here- but never fear, progress has been slowly made! We have even more chibis now of the cast by ElliCoffee which will be turned into keychains Eventually.

I also completely redid Cyrin's sprite and redesigned him somewhat to look more age-appropriate. (I swear he's supposed to be like 25!)

Last but not least... new screenshots!!

I just finished the demo, and it looks pretty good. The art is nice, the main characters are likeable, and plot certainly seems interesting. :)

I would say that one issue I have with it is the fact that the secondary characters (Levi, Ayane, and Dania) weren't ever really introduced; they just appeared without any real explanation. I assume they're already familiar with Kotachi and Ophi, due to their interactions, but it would be nice to have a little dialogue or descriptive text confirming this. (I would also like to see what other characters think of the boys' new foxy mentor, but nobody else seems to have noticed... :lol:)

Also, is he Levi or Leos? :? Because I was pretty sure his name was Levi, but the character descriptions in this thread call him Leos...

Anyway, good luck with the game! :D

I've had such issues as well, about the secondary characters (Levi, Ayane, and Dania). Anyway, it's a great thing that they trying to implement such astrology things, like zodiac signs. And well, talking of which, here is a free astrology site I found on the web, where author explains a lot of zodiac and astrology things in details, and what zodiac sign you should pay attention on.
