Yeah, that's fine. I do think glimpses of the other characters are a good idea though, since they tend to make a reader think 'ooooh, who is THAT hottie' and thus you've got advertising in your own routes before the player even gets to them!
I admit, you raise a great point, because I do the same thing. I'll play a route, and then I see another character in them, and wonder if I can romance them instead. Unfortunately, most of my characters have zero relations with each other, there's no 'common route' in my story. You pick a guy, and that's the story you'll get, with their own supporting cast.
Yep. I hate bad endings. In fact, I don't get them unless there's some kind of "achievements list" where there will be an empty square for the bad ending. )^: But yeah, neutral and happy endings are best for me!
Then you'll like my game at least! There's two endings, and they are based on the heroine's personality, determined by the choices you make. Are you outspoken and not afraid to pick a fight? Or are you softspoken and prefer to be kind instead?
No, but as aforementioned, I love dress-up games. I would only suggest them be turn-off-able after initial playthrough IF the dress-up doesn't contribute to the story, or any comments from the love interests or anything.
I am considering an option so that people can simply read the story without bothering with the clothes. The way it works, is you have to earn money to 'purchase' the next chapter of the story, you earn money by making clothes for clients. It will be a continuous playthrough, so you don't 'start over' each time you begin a new story, you keep the clothes you've made, and simply get more and more options each time.

That's a shame, customizing your character will be a huge part of this game. I was toying around with the idea of showing her during cutscenes as well (example
) but people voted against it because she wouldn't have any expressions.
Very excited for this
Looks so good, and the clothing part is something I can't wait to have fun with. Good luck with it all!
Thank you! I am currently working with a programmer that will bow down to all my wishes about the clothing system, so that's currently in the works. I hope I can make it as complex as I have in mind, and that people can make loads of fun designs with it. I really want to see screenshots from people
