A Very Important Date - New Official Prologue Demo 2.2

#1 Post by Chibi Subaru » Sat Dec 19, 2015 9:09 pm

It’s here! It’s here! Our First Very Important Demo is available for download! Again, just as a warning, this demo is very basic, but we wanted to show progress of some of what we have so far. The backgrounds are finalized pieces and the GUI design is finalized for the most part. As we’ve said before, our sprites are being redone, but the overall character design is staying the same. We are still working on the music department, so we apologize for there being no music or sound within this demo. Once we have more finalized, we plan to release another demo, which will feature Gwyn’s and Emil’s first three chapters.

So please enjoy! Any feedback is appreciated.

Here’s the link to the demo (Windows): http://www.mediafire.com/download/t1ngo ... t+Date.rar

Our team has worked really hard the past few weeks to bring you our first completely in-house built demo for Windows and Mac. This demo uses the official engine the game will be using from now on. New features in this prologue demo include:
  • Parts of the Main Menu
  • Sound Effects
  • In-game menu with functional Settings, Resume, and Quit buttons
  • Ability to change Textbox Transparency, Music Volume, Sound Effect Volume, and Screen Resolution
Along with San Japan prep, we’re working to make our demo available to mobile users.

We plan to add more features, like Save/Load and Fast Forward, and content, like Gwyn’s and Emil’s First Chapter(s), to these demos before our Kickstarter launch date.

For more information and to download our demo, please visit our Very Important itch.io page.

Hello to all of our wonderful fans!

We’re happy to announce our updated demo is out and released on our itch.io page! Here’s what we have added:
  • Save/Load feature
  • Choice options
  • Quit Menu that allows you to go back to the Main Menu
  • 3 Chapters for Gwyn and Emil for a total of 6 chapters
  • 26,088 Words in total for about 3 hours worth of story
  • 3 New static sprites
  • 7 New backgrounds
Because of how long it was taking to implement some of these features, we were unable to add in the Fast Forward feature for the updated demo.

For those that plan to play Gwyn’s and Emil’s chapters, you’ll want to save in the Prologue when Alison says "Um... I guess I’ll work with…”

To pull up the menu bar, press ESC or P keys.


Our mobile demos will be released in a few days. We’re currently working on fixing a bug in our Android demo.

We’re going to send our Kickstarter campaign information in in a little bit so it can be reviewed. After the approval process, we’ll let everyone know about it through all of our social media pages. We can’t wait to show you what we have in store for all you Very Important fans! Stay tuned for that announcement!

Hello everyone!

We're happy to announce that A Very Important Date's demo has been updated! The Rory update includes the first 3 chapters of Rory's story which boosts the word count of the demo to over 45,000, and increases playtime by around two hours! The demo can be downloaded from our Itch.io page.​

Along with Rory's chapters, this demo also adds in the CG Eye Toggle feature and the ability to delete save files. The CG Eye Toggle feature will change our event illustrations to either show Alison's eyes or have them obscured. The CG Eye Toggle's effect can be seen in Gwyn's third chapter.

Please keep in mind that this is still a demo, so there may still be bugs that haven't been worked out yet. In our next demo update, we hope to implement the fast forward, log, and name change capabilities.

Thank you all and we hope you enjoy Rory's updat​​e.
