Here's a preview of of Louis and Marie Pasteur's sprites. I'm going to be using a sepia photographic style for the art for Hazel's microbiology route. For Zelan's English route, I'm going to try to replicate renaissance period art, since the Taming of the Shrew is a Shakespeare play.

@sqbr Sorry about the confusion! Bianca is the love interest for the English route. (I did briefly toy with the idea of a poly romance, but it didn't for with the story I had in mind.)

A VN where I can be a major that's not killing my brain with electrical engineering and there are girls to date? SIGN ME UP

Jokes aside, HOO BOY I'm loving the majors available here. They're all pretty much my faves, but I HAVE been wishing that I went for something biology instead so that'll probably be my first go once this is done :d
The art's looking really adorable-- love the MC, she looks great, and I'm loving the arts for the figures as well. It's GORGEOUS, and I'm just really excited for this.

I'll be keeping my eyes out on this!

Thanks so much, Namio!

And yeah, I agree, I love the sprites for the microbiology route. The shading is fantastic, and I'm just really impressed with how quickly yoshibb works. :D

As far as updates go, I've been working on a variety of stuff (like GUI) for this game. I'll program the GUI fairly soon, but here are some previews of general things:

MC can study hard for her finals...or she can have this frame of mind.

Thank you for the complement on my art ^.^ I'm trying a lot of these styles for the first time so I'm glad they turned out ok.

Speaking of which, this is Bianca's sprite for the English route, based on the Renaissance period art style.

Hello!!
I absolutely love your idea, though
it's a bit sad bc once the finals are over, the MC may not be able to see all those people anymore :'(
(Or maybe it'll help her decide on her major or even her future work?) (Can you really become a cat lady? :lol: )
Anyway the idea got me hooked, plus the artstyle is very cute and the fact you decided to do another artstyle for each protagonist is such a great idea!

I'll be looking forward to your game (you've got a stalker.... I meant, on this topic!)
(Kinda wondering, would it be okay to do fanarts of your characters?)

Can't wait to see and read more about your game!
Good luck to you all!!!!! :)

Hey Didules, it's awesome to see you here!! (You can absolutely become a cat lady if you play your cards right.)

Fan art would be A-okay, we all love it here. c:

Backgrounds are pretty much down to what we can find that's Creative Commons, public domain or such. some editing will probably occur later to make this image match up to the visual theme of the microbiology route:

This sounds like an incredible premise and something I might have fantasized about when I still read physical books (though I admit, not when I read the kind of books you will be using haha).
I just love this idea and it will be great to see it come to life! Good luck ♥
