After a good amount of verbal abuse and dealing with false accusations of shirking her work, she finally snaps, hitting one of the patrons. In horror of what she has done, she flees to the outside and begins to walk, her mind swimming in despair. Only then does she realize how lost she's become. This is the story of her adventure in the wilderness, finding her way home and perhaps realizing she doesn't want to go home.
She meets the little boy Jax who lives with his parents in a cabin in the woods. He's always playing make-belive on a dragon-slaying quest of monumental import. His parents, Krista and Toby, also have their own reasons for retreating so far from town though for the meantime seem content to help Jui start out on her new life of independence.
The game is aimed to be between 80,000 - 120,000 words. [Current count: 20,000]
There will be minor instances of traditional (non-puppetted) animation for mouth movement during dialogue and facial expressions.
Also of note, this game will feature some amount of context-appropriate nonsexual nudity (Jui only took one set of clothing into the woods, after all!). I did not feel that this warrants posting in the "Adult" section as it is inconsequential to the overall story but is important to Jui's character growth of accepting others and accepting herself. I will not be posting any nudity here on Lemma Soft Forums at all. If this is still not okay and needs to be moved to "Adult", someone let me know and I'll take the appropriate action.
What I *can't* do is background art (well, I can but I need lots more practice). UI design and music are other things I need done, but I have sources for help on those.
I'm doing my best to get this done. It's been in production since April, 2017 and going strong.
Let me know your thoughts, first-impressions, general level of interest, whatever. I'm mostly posting to get my feet wet in the community. I have no idea what I'm doing (online, leastwise!) and the best way to learn is to jump in somewhere.
