- Character sprites are gorgeous! It made me reach out to Marimo for some art commissions as well!

- I think there are far too many side characters with big enough roles that don't have a sprite. I find I'm looking more often at spriteless backgrounds than ones with sprites in them. Since the art is so goodlooking, I think there should be more sprites at least for Paul's roommates


Anyways good luck with this game! Looking forward to the final!
:? Please, don't make Marimo busier than she is... ALL the sprites were supposed to be finished like three months ago, and you can see how many are still missing...

I'll make it a Kickstarter stretch goal. If that goal isn't reached, some LI will top and others will bottom, but you'll have to find out which it is when you play it :lol:

(The NSFW scenes are few, two per route so far, but I wouldn't say they are light).
Oooh cool!
I sure hope we reach that stretch goal~ always nice to have more romance games where players can choose which position they want the protagonist to have. Best of luck! ^w^)b

Ahhh I should have clarified. When I say "commissions" (plural) it's actually only 1 CG and we haven't discussed a deadline yet. That said, I assume she'll schedule as appropriate and not let anything flounder on either end. At least that's what I would do. :)

Good communications and setting expectations for when things will be done based on priority is key as a good freelancer.

Our new, shiny textbox is finished! Lizz is currently working on the rest of the screens, and I'm sure you can expect a great job of her, as usual :D

By the way, I forgot to say a censored version of the game will be available from the main menu, a +15 rated one (making out, partial nudity, both in CGs and text).

Aaaw, this was a long silence! :roll: Time to break it with the release of an extended, updated demo!


Let's see, what's new in this demo?
  • 24.5k words, the first week of Paul in Paris.
  • A first date.
  • Finished backgrounds, 5 CGs, all side characters have a sprite.
  • Final calendar and stats system.
  • 1 simple (skippable) minigame.
I'd also like to introduce our two new artists, who are helping to speed up the development:

- Aeilia Poot on the CGs (https://twitter.com/Aliennnnia0012
- Ayra Isaac on the side characters' sprites https://ayraisaacart.carrd.co/

The extended demo is now on Steam, too (link added to the main post).

We have a Google questionnaire and would love to get some feedback to improve the game; it's very short and to the point. You can find it here: https://forms.gle/f8eMJrzUfg8Zqy3n7
