I spent pretty much the whole day cleaning up the code, fixing bugs and adding in GUI elements.

There is also a Waiterss minigame! It's a really basic memory game.
You can 'skip' it by just clicking on 'done'. It will give you a 'bad result'. There are variations in the story based on how you do the minigame, but it won't have drastic consequences on the overall story.

Initially I tried to make this mini game more difficult by adding multiple tables at the same time, ect. but it was too much for the type of vn we're making, so I scrapped the extra content.

Wowie, this looks fantastic! The art is beautiful, and Chloe is really pretty! Plus I think the plot is relatable to a lot of people (the getting out of college/no job/desperate for work part, at least).
I'm wishing you the best of luck. And you've accomplished so much already! Good job! ^^

I made some headway wit the GUI. I've decided to build it with styles and code in the game, instead of making designs in Photoshop and cutting those to use as images. I really wanted to try this method, and it keeps the file size low, haha.

I absolutely adore the soft water colour look you have going and the logo looks fantastic! (as usual).

Good luck to the both of you in making the game, I'm really looking forward to it!

@Auro-Cyanide
Thank you! I was really consious of the logo, to be honest, so hearing that is a bit of a relief.

The story behind the backgrounds/style is actually pretty interesting. During the pre-production phase the first plans were to have only 4 backgrounds. But then I decided to do some tests with photographs and filters and it created a pretty cool look. After mashing up photos and doing paint overs I realized that the photo's I used were license with ShareAlike, so we couldn't use those in the game, because we didn't want a ShareAlike license.

So I went and spent hours looking for different CC photos. I found some really cool ones. I tried to do the cafe background again, but it really didn't give the same feeling as the first background. So using the first as inspiration, I just sketched a new one. It was really sketchy, but I blocked the colours in. My plan was to render it like I do most of my backgrounds, but the idea of using the custom action I created for the photos on the coloured sketch and it worked really well.

Oh my gosh, this looks so cute! I'm a sucker for cafe themed VNs ;w; And it's really cool how there's some variety, as to which avatar you could pick for your pretend guy + how you 'met' him! This sounds super fun, so good luck on this!

This is already looking better than a lot of commercial games.

@ixWishing Thank you!! I really hope you enjoy it once we're done!

@Razz - Wow, thank you! That means a lot!

We've been neglecting this thread a little, but it's only because we're chugging away working on the game itself. I'm a little late for a screenshot Saturday, but here's another cap of what the game looks like so far:

And a little snapshot of my progress with the writing:
The game contains 1,977 dialogue blocks, containing 21,991 words and 112,699
characters, for an average of 11.1 words and 57 characters per block.
