>CHARACTERS<

ImageImage
Nikolas
The boy who changed everything. Katy and Mark believe him to have medium-functioning autism, as he's able to talk/react on occasion and seems to be at least partially aware of his surroundings and abilities...depending on the day, anyway. He's very impulsive and can have a temper.

Image
Katy
The first of the two teenagers that Nikolas seems to have chosen at random to bring back into existance to play with. She's relatively gentle, and always tries to get him to open up to her. She often is willing to play with Nikolas, and tries to encourage him to trust the both of them. He likes her more than Mark, and calls her K at times. There's a sadness to her, though, and it depresses her whenever she tries to think of life before the end- like Mark, she can't remember much of what happened before the end.

Image
Mark
The second of the two teenagers. He's definitely more brash than Katy, and is often frustrated by Nikolas just as a whole. Nikolas enjoys teasing him, as he knows Mark is easy to rile up (then, when Mark is good and angry, erases them again, something that irritates the both of them.) Mark just wants things to return to how they were before- even if he, like Katy, can't remember much of what happened before the end.

wow this sounds really interesting. I wonder if there will be multiple endings or a kinetic novel? The plot seems quite straight-forward, but still there can be surprises :)

This reminds me of that YA series called Gone (autistic child with powers, created a large bubble around him and kicked everyone out of it), except with far, far less people. Which is why this is interesting to me. wonder if this will have a good end, or a really tragic end. Good luck on finishing this. I would like to see where you go with this.

This definitely spikes my interest!
The background story and the art (so far) looks super amazing :)
Hope you'll be able to release it soon!
Good luck :D

I like the sound of this story! I'm curious about the boy, and how he made the world dissapear. I'm curious about how his friends are too. I look forward to this.

The premise is really interesting and I'd love to see what you do with this. I hope you complete this project.

Characters added, percentages updated. Planning to grab music today, as well. Still not sure whether to draw backgrounds or use CC photos yet.

There will be eight endings in total. Six bad ends, one neutral end, one true end.
Yeah, its that kind of game.

Statistics:

The game contains 286 dialogue blocks, containing 3,070 words and 16,392
characters, for an average of 10.7 words and 57 characters per block.

The game contains 4 menus, 21 images, and 12 screens.
I haven't had much time to do things, and my inexperience is proving to be my undoing so far. However, I do have a good portion of the sprites taken care of, and I'm going to be working on getting good CC music and backgrounds today.

Even if I don't finish for NaNoRenO I'll still work on this until it's finished, though. (Even if another game/idea ends up getting worked on at the same time, woops)

I like the way you presented the introduction, it's a nice use of tone of voice. I'm curious about how you are using the profile sprites as well. Good with completing the game :)
