I’m so happy to present Demo 2 of ‘Best Friends Forever’ (even if it is a little later than planned due me having to reduce the original file size from half a gig >_<)
This demo is much longer than Demo 1 and covers the first two weeks of school (as opposed to the first two days in the Demo 1). Being longer, it gives a better grounding for the story as well as an example of the standard gameplay and many more encounters with the characters.
I’m not sure how long it will take to play, but the stats are as follows:
The game contains 2,106 dialogue blocks, containing 28,675 words and 152,697 characters, for an average of 13.6 words and 73 characters per block.
The game contains 33 menus, 800 images, and 17 screens.
So considering the number of choices you can make, there is a bit of replay value there, too, for anyone who wants to get all the encounters/conversations. ^_^
Feedback would be very welcome, specifically…
How did you feel the story handled the themes it presented?
Which character did you like the most/least and why?
Were there any parts you found jarring/confusing/just plain rubbish?
Were there any parts you particularly enjoyed or struck a chord with you?
Okay, well, I don’t have much more to add here. Now this demo is released, I’ll be spending the next few months finishing off writing/coding the character routes while ayachin works on the CGs. It’s too early yet to give a release date, but I’ll keep everyone posted.
Thanks for reading
