Coming Out On Top (BxB, Dating, Comedy) (News 11/15)

#1 Post by Obscura » Mon Jul 23, 2012 8:26 am

COMING OUT ON TOP

You are Mark Matthews, a college senior who just came out to his best friends.
You're hitting the gay dating scene for the first time in your life.
Before you know it, you've met a hot guy who wants your number.
Unfortunately, things are about to get complicated.

Will you be able to make the right decisions and come out on top?



08/1/2013-Latest update for the game can be found here.

11/26/2012-The demo is out and the Kickstarter is up. As many of you know, the old demo has had its art completely redone and it is now an 18+ game.

Visit any of my blogs in the sig to get the most recent updates. Any and all feedback/criticism always welcome.

Yep, I have the same error Q__Q
Something in line 11 makes at least the Win-Version unable to start (more then the logo isn't happening).

Congrats on completing your first VN! I've downloaded this and will try to get to it sometime this week. I did open the game once to see if I'd get the same error as everyone else, but nothing happened in the Mac version. :0

So just put it online again and say, they should click on ignore ;)

Ok...feeling bad about the bug, guys. Apologies. I took out what I think was the problem (splash screen integration?). This version doesn't have a splash screen. If there are still problems...I guess I'll put this back in Beta. :(

Oh, don't worry about it! :D It's normal... or at least, it happened with my demo release. So yeah, as long as you provide a playable version, it's all fine xD

Who, and theeeeere go two hours of playing :D
Nice game!

Even though my head hurts a little from the anatomy words xD

So here come a few critique:
- The sprites look great, love especially the °__° looks from Penny and Ian xD
- The music is ok, sometimes a bit too aggressive, but one gets used to it.
- No obvious spelling errors, congratz ;)
- The drama towards the end was great, especially since it had reasons instead of simple "Make it dramatic, how about someone randomly running amok"
- LOVE the apps! Fistbump!!
- I understand your concerns about the language now totally, I sometimes had to grin with a dirty smile while reading :'D

Just a few things:
Tell me the truth, will Edwina and Ian be happily ever after?! Q__Q
xD

And I'm having a major problem:
You do not have a wall of text but a wall of choices there :'D
I said so in the demo, even though I found / and even now find it hilarious.
BUT I'm just not getting the first ending o.o
When there are like five choices, two almost identical from the feeling, how am I supposed to know which gives me that one point that could be missing at the end for him to like me? xD"


But except from that, great game! :D
Congratulations on releasing it again!
It was awesome for a first game :3

@ Destiny

Aw yeah! Thanks for your mighty helpful review!
Yeah, I usually turn off the music in every video game I play, so I didn't really know what was appropriate for a VN. Because everything sounds very noisy to me... but I understand what you're saying.

About the endings:
The third ending you get only if you get a high relationship rating with Alex. I believe the "point box" should come up after you've finished the game and gotten one of the main endings. You don't have to have a perfect score, but a pretty high one.
Here's a clue: Alex likes mature, nice guys. (i.e., doesn't drink girly drinks...lol) In the very last office scene, did you kiss him or no? What would a mature guy have done? Just because Alex likes something doesn't mean he thinks it's relationship material. Hopefully you'll get the right ending...let me know if you're still having problems or if the blue relationship box doesn't come up.
Just a few things:
Tell me the truth, will Edwina and Ian be happily ever after?! Q__Q
xD
Hahaha...if I expand the game Ian will definitely have a relationship. Not saying with who. :wink:
Love ya, babe. Thanks again for your feedback. Let me know if you have any more problems.
