I-I'm tempted to sign up for sprite artist orz;;
But I really shouldn't, since school just resumed and I should be concentrating on projects and stuff. ;v;
Pffff if only you were seeking a month ago during winter holidays.
Good luck with getting artists! I'll be looking forward to this <3

*I think you mean fateful* ;)

The story sounds pretty cliche, something like Harukanaru Toki no Naka de, but I can't really judge it just yet. The protagonist sounds like she might be interesting to read about, I like strong female protagonists. Good luck with it.

Woww, that's interesting.
I agreed with Auro-Cyanide that the story remind me of the Harukanaru series (I'm Harukanaru fan but doesn't play much lately)

I love drawing ,so If you think my art skill is okay.... (Oh you know what I'm going to say XD)
My works can be found in my deviantart page
There's a problem though ,actually, I had an upcoming Final exam in around a month but I'll totally free when it over.
I can do something before exam too (with slow speed)

I think I can do both CGs and character art.
Feel free to contact me for more details about my work if you interested XD
Call me "Zia"

oh wow really?
i've never heard of Harukanaru, soooo i searched it on wikipedia just in case it really was like the game. But I assure you, unless the brief synopsis for that game is wrong, it's not the plot i'm writing :)

Wow, this looks really interesting. I'm looking forward to this :D I'd help out in art, but I already have a few things on my plate right now orz

Good luck! The logo looks good, and the plot sounds intriguing. If you ever need an extra editor or proofreader to check for spelling/grammar, I'm definitely willing to help in that department :D

The character sprite looks really great. One thing that I did noticed that stood out there was that the facial expression was on the side. I'm not sure if you intended that way or not, but it's something I noticed since most of the time, the sprites' facial expressions is more central toward the viewers.

But other than that tiny little detail, it looks pretty awesome.

I am honestly obsessed! Those were amazing. One thing though, I was going for Ren to have a little bit more boyishness to him (bigger eyes, a little bit messier hair)
like how you did here.

but I loveeee the outfit you put on him. It's actually better than what I imagined he'd be wearing XD


You already know this by now buttttt you are HIRED :)

&& the current Ren's eyes I feel like would fit better with Akatsuki or even Seto

Just one thing. Your game seems to be shoujo, not shounen, so I'd just put or the other. xD Shounen is like...Naruto.
Check out the new interactive media project, Mitsumata(c). Follow 8 colorful characters in a story full of drama, horror, all sexualities and exciting gameplay~!
