@Plueschkatze
Thank you!

Here's some screenshots. The background is a stand-in, but everything else isn't.

I love the office-themed GUI! c: The business logo on the preferences screen is a nice touch. And those dialogue options in the third screenshot, oh man. cx

The gui looks great! It's got a nice clean look to it. ("Please don't rip off his face in my office," I can tell this MC has been through a lot. :lol:) The cleaned up sprites are looking great too!

I have a question! What's our goal with our relationship mentoring? Are we trying to get them to stay together, or get them to go through with their divorce without killing each other first? Or will it be different for each pair...? I'm curious.

Thanks you guys :D. Jujube did a super cool job with the GUI. The choices even have a neat effect when they show up.

@Avior
The routes all have three choices. The first two require you to approach the pair in a specific way based on who they are. If you do it right, you'll get love points and a bit more insight on what's going on with their relationship.

Choice three requires realizing what the main problem between the two seems to be and telling them to talk about that. That third choice determines if you get a happy ending or a bad ending for the pair. You get a bonus romantic scene if you choose correctly all three times.

It's a pretty easy game honestly, aha.

-What do you think of the concept?
It's a unique concept and it seems like it'll be a good laugh. The fact that the pairings are randomised is a huge draw for me, since that'll add replayability!

-Which character sounds the best so far?
Po. It looks like it'd be squishy. Nerium also sounds like he'd be pretty funny.

-Is there any pairing in particular you’re looking forward to?
Honestly, all of them haha

I really like how the UI looks so business-like. I'll definitely be looking forward to this being released!

Oh!! I like the finished sprites, they look so cute! Also, the GUI is really nice in my opinion -- it goes well with the concept!

^Thank you very much :>


Lexis and Lillum first draft is done! That means both Nerium and Lexis have all three routes. It's just Jeska that's left :mrgreen:.

In a few more days I'll be able to start programming the scripts in and then I can show more screenshots. For now I'll probably just stick to writing.

Also, the first listen of the game's music has been shared with our team by our musician! It's quite chill :).

I'm always attracted to the idea of fantasy elements mixing with mundane civil-service/office life (things like the grim reapers in Grim Fandango, the Fairy Tale Police Department, the Fairy Godmother's Association in A Simple Wish, the Vogons in The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, etc).

I like Po's blob-design, so it's my favourite character so far. I'm looking forward to seeing the finished VN!

Just dropping in to say that I looooove the GUI design. It's clean and works really well! Major props to Jujube for that :D

Also, the finished sprites look great, and the dialog/choice snippets in the preview are looking fantastic as well. Can't wait to play this! I'm sure it'll be a lot of fun :D

Just wanted to say I've been following this project all month and the more I see it, the more I like it. I wish you look in the finals weeks of NaNo and I can't wait to play this!

Thank you so much for all the nice comments! I'm sorry I haven't been updating the thread >>.

Here's a quick summation: the script/chibis/GUI are all mostly done, the sprites are done and have blinking frames, I've started programming, and we've got a sketch for the background! Hooray! Also, some new screenshots-

Oh, the screenshots are looking great! I might have a soft spot for Lexis after all. Really hoping RNG graces me with the Lexis/Po route (without reloading TOO many times)! :D
