Crunchy Lunch is a comedy VN about when you take your lunch to work and IT'S SO LOUD THAT EVERYONE ELSE IN THE OFFICE HEARS IT!!!

The plan right now is to write the whole thing on sticky notes and photograph it, so that it looks like this:

And so... yeah, that's what I got so far. Spent the first day working on the prototype above to make sure this was feasible. Now it's time to actually write the darn thing! It'll probably be short, but I do plan to include choices and branching paths. More updates to come!

Welp, now this is a concept you don't see everyday.... *O* Your games are always hilarious and I can't wait to see the direction this will take.
Also LOVE the sticky note idea, it looks so good! And the hand-writing on it is so legit and 'hand-writing-like'... Is that a font by any chance?

Good Luck this NaNoReNo!

Wow what a unique design concept! I hope you'll include the awkwardness of "stomach growling in a really quiet office" too, haha.

Thanks! I thought I'd use this jam as a chance to try something a little different.

Yep, this VN may or may not have some basis in personal experience, haha.

Actually, the reason the handwriting looks legit is because it is! That's my actual handwriting (although, believe it or not, that's me taking my time to be a little neater than usual, so that people can actually read it.)

Thanks, Avior! Still early in the writing process, but will definitely be considering all sorts of awkward lunch noises!

Hey, just wanted to post an update that progress is going well! Have a draft of the script done and will get around to hand-writing and photographing everything out soon. Also did some work on SFX and music.

Finally, here's a very special preview of some very complicated code in my prototype:

Just dropping in to say that I was in the library the other day and my girlfriend brought me chips and this was all I could think of.

(She was excited to hear about your game! I showed Banality Man to her and another friend and we had a lot of fun with it.)

Haha, that's awesome! Chips in a library sounds like a very risky combination...

I'm a little embarrassed because I think I, myself, am "the guy who crunches too loud," but this looks really cool. Can't wait to play this! Good luck!
