Work in Progress (Salty Salty Studios)

#1 Post by gekiganwing » Tue Jun 17, 2014 6:39 am

This visual novel was originally called Salty Tears, and was added to the EVN Developer list some time ago. It has been in the conceptual phase since spring 2012, updating now and then. However, I don't think it has a thread here on Lemma Soft just yet. So... why am I mentioning it now? Because a new demo has just been released, and has been added to the official site. If you prefer torrents, then use the links in the group's relevant Twitter post.

As the group's website clearly states, this is a community college story about a guy who's struggling through academia. I looked through their blog for a couple minutes in order to find more plot details, and didn't have much success. One post from two years ago stated that the main character Oliver "...finds himself in the middle of a tug-of-war between two girls and their attempts to recruit him for their on-campus clubs," but that's the most concise statement that I could find. It seems to be a boy x girl romance story, but I could be wrong.

As I thought, it's a pretty fun demo (although I still want to give Oliver a piece of my mind). The menu buttons and overall look make me jealous~

I still haven't gone through the whole demo yet. I like the beginning. The menu buttons and GUI kinda reminds me of Katawa Shoujo.

Well, that "work in progress" has finally got a title: it's now called Twofold. There's no new demo released, unfortunately.

Looking at the credits page it's easy to understand why. There are some known names there, under "special thanks to". Also, see this thread on KS forum: http://ks.renai.us/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=9744

No, sorry! You must be mistaking me for someone else.

Went through the demo today. It has good art and texty dialogue. If it ever gets finished, it will be a visual delight.
