Besides, the music that's been made already is brilliant. I'm in love with the title screen theme. ^_^ You know I have a soft spot for music box tunes!
People should be okay with that, right? *nervously looks around for approval* I think for the scale of the project we've done really well! Especially for a first try at NaNo.
Yep! And I've also found some really good CC music from other musicians to complement the story anyway. Musicbox tunes... mmmmm..

I agree! I think we did a decent job for Nano... and I really do want to see this game released in its full glory. The support for the project is awesome esp for a newb group like ours!

Oh no, have I revealed my kryptonite?


I hope that our other projects (I say our, I haven't done anything yet :3) like Flightless will get just as much support! It made me so happy to see how welcoming everyone is! *hugs you all*

Not to forget that once everything is edited and locked down, I'll be doing a German translation of our VN, so if you're a native speaker or know German, you can look forward to that aswell! :)

XD You're giving ame-chan a run for her money, Marionette!

Gosh, I can't stop thinking of them all as some kind of crew now. >__<

I wonder what the initiation process was...?

Too sparkly, you say? Maybe just a little. But these images are lovely! I'm excited for the demo release. :)

Lol.. I overloaded them with the sparkles to compensate for the rest of the dark tone of the game. Thanks so much Mad Harlequin! So glad to see a familiar face from page1 :D

UPDATE!

The Demo is now live!!

Some questions that I would love to know:

1. Your first thoughts about the story and characters.
2. Is the mature filter appropriate? What do you think is the mature rating for this game so far?
3. Did you see any bugs in the game and the UI?
4. Do you think this is a game you'd wait around for completion?
5. Any improvements you can recommend?
6. Do you think gameplay would add to the story or is it fine the way it is?

Additional questions if you've enjoyed the game!:

1. Share your theories about the story!
2. Who's your favorite character so far or any favorite moments?
3. Your thoughts on Mother. How is Mother portrayed? Do you want more choice routes or are interactions enough?


Guys, Thanks so much for waiting. It is finally up and I am a nervous wreck! If you see any bugs or errors, please tell me right away. Also, if you enjoyed the game, do tell me! I want to hear your thoughts!

By the way, we have a tumblr now! http://cupidvn.tumblr.com/ I'll post a lot of BTS and production stuff in there so if you're interested, give us a follow!

Thanks again everyone! *nervously waits in a corner*

Well, I'm going to run through the demo as soon as I can and give you some feedback! (There are so many great projects coming out of NaNoReNo that it might take a while to get to them all. :lol:)

Congratulations!

I haven't proofread the demo at all, so another feature (if that's what you want to call it) on the full version will be better grammar checks. That's the only downside with having more than one of us, we sometimes clash! ^_^

Thanks so much for the well-wishes, Mad harlequin! (you actually inspired a line in the demo... I wonder if you'll catch it hehe)

That was my fault, Cat. I submitted the demo without any form of proodreading. I wanted to release it right away just in time for Nano's end for.. I dunno. some sort of nano closure. I think with your two passes for the proofs, it was good enough to release.
