Oh, man, that fiery hair looks awesome on both of the Phoenixes! ^_^ I love the hair on the Teals as well, matches their name.

Thanks for all the comments! It's really helpful for staying motivated :D And we're looking forward to seeing it all finished as well :'D
I'll also just say thanks on behalf of Pectin, regarding the color choices (I'm really liking them, too :lol: )


A little more progress:
I've just finished implementing the game menu.
Still a bunch of things you could tweak but writing has a higher priority right now

The character designs look so good (and doubly so in color)! And the backgrounds are so detailed @.@ And the UI looks so good. All the art assets are so amazing. I'm also really digging that you can choose pronouns for the main cast. I wish I had a tailor made AI that caters to my every need. I'm really looking forward to playing this when it's done.

Thank you! I'm really liking Pectin's art, too :D
And who wouldn't want an AI like that :'D

Speaking of character art, we just implemented the final art for Snow!

Thanks e_Zombo for replying and everything >3<

Female Teal's sprites are finally done!
Here's a cropped version of some expressions:

Some more updates, as we're entering the final week:

Our script is coming along nicely but there's still a lot to do since we're only at 70% and still need to edit most of it :'D

And here's a new screenshot with some final art of female Phoenix!

A little late to the party, but wow. The artwork and character design is adorable, and the story premise sounds fun. Definitely going to look forward to playing this one.

Thanks! We're happy to hear that :D


Unfortunately we won't be able to finish the whole game in March but we're hard at work to get at least the first 60% of it ready for launch on Friday so there should still be a good chunk of it to play :'D

The rest will follow over the coming months, as we won't be able to work on it full-time anymore starting in April but we definitely want to have the complete game finished before summer!

So, we sort of just launched right now :D

It's only the first half of the game and there are still things we'll polish over the next few days.
But it's playable! And hopefully doesn't crash :'D

I hate it... BUT I LOVE IT.

Why I hate it;
Simply because as of now the convo on March 18th feels very directed to me personally and I'm very much like the MC. Very.. Much. It makese think, it does! About my life that I hardly do anything about it. I feel like Joyce is getting to me- Is that your purpose for this game? Or is it simply a relatable great story?

Why I love it;
It is very long. At least it feels like it. I've been playing it God knows when and for God knows how long but I feel very full. I don't feel irritated like a very long scene on one thought and it's not a drag. It is very fulfilling the entire time I play it. I get sucked into it. Kudos and congratulations. Though sometimes I wonder if it's romance but believe me, I've completely forgotten I came here for romance and just indulge myself in the game. Just playing it, "in the moment."

I am still in the middle of playing it March 19th, it almost made me cry. I admit, being very into it, I actually felt betrayed but Joyce is quite correct.

Bittersweet. Now I know how it really feels like.
- Also, I wonder if Zen, Suuj, Ex, or Joyce are datable? -

This is just adorable. I was happily playing along and when Joyce popped up it was just like...
(●´ω`●)
Eee!

I think this is definitely one of the most underestimated Nanoreno entries. Probably because it's not straight out romance.

Everything was just so beautiful and perfect and while the endings feel a little anti-climatic (without giving spoilers) everything is wrapped up nicely.

Awesome job!
