There are no doubt still minor errors in this build. Please bear with me while this game continues development.

  •  So what’s in this game?

This game contains the first of two parts of the visual novel. There are 10 characters to interact with and different branches and scenes to see depending on your actions. Your actions and answers to questions will affect who you spend time with, and each character's affection towards you. Based on your decisions things will turn out great for you and someone else, or maybe not.

 


  • Can I help or contribute?

Contribution is completely 100% optional. Just reading this journal this far means a lot. The biggest thing you can do is share my content or the link to the game.

If you play it give feedback! Tell me things you’d like to see or things you think would make it better. Let me know what errors you find or what would make it better.

This game will come out and will be free to play and I will be working on it in my spare time to get it up and completed.

If you feel so inclined to support me further you can do so here in Itch.io or on patreon here: https://www.patreon.com/scylez

 


  • When will it release? 

Development is ongoing and the final version will be released as I finish each new scene. I don't however have a specific date for completion. I don't want to rush towards a set date and sacrifice quality for a deadline.

Hey Scylez, what exactly was in a 2.0 update?

The biggest addition to the 2.0 update was one more scene added to the end of the game. In addition to that was the addition of the image gallery, and numerous numerous bug fixes.

2.0 wasn't really a huge update, but after 1.9 I figured it would just be the least confusing to go onto 2.0 instead of like 1.91 or something like that. 

It's a bad habit, but I didn't create a devlog for this update because I've been working on a few small fixes and wanted to get those implemented and updated before I did so. In the future I should probably always do a devlog and make smaller bug fixes 2.0.1 but hey, live and learn I guess lol

Thanks for the question!

Oh and I almost forgot, I added the "scene picker" so if someone wants to play a specific scene they can play just that one part. It will get another update with more options later but it's been implemented in 2.0 as well!

Alrighty, thanks for the reply! ^^

(1 edit)

I was really surprised with this! A lot of VN's I've played recently have just been 20 minutes long proof of concepts, interesting but just another game that probably won't get any proper content for months if not longer. This one has a surprisingly large amount of content, a pretty good plotline, nice characters, very good CGs, and although a bit rough around the edges with some typos or [player name] dotted around, is really enjoyable!

I've played through most of the routes now and I think Scylez is the one I'd most like to give a massive hug to (along with Willow, they're both just adorable), but Blinki is the one I'm sticking with, he's a nerd with self confidence issues and is surprisingly kinky, I'm all about that <3

I'm really sorry to say that I'm not able to subscribe to the Patreon right now, but I really wish you the best of luck with it all, and this VN really deserves a lot more attention than it's currently getting :)

Thanks a lot for the kind words! I'm really glad you enjoyed the game so far! It's so amazing to hear your experience and I'm glad there's a few characters you've taken a liking to :D that means I've been doing things right! 

I admit it is rough around the edges in parts. It definitely needs another proofread by myself and the [player names] are the bane of my existence, but I'll be working really hard to get them sorted out! This project has been a big passion of mine for a long time and I promise to work hard and sort it all out!

Don't feel pressured at all to join the patreon either. You taking the time to write me some feedback is reward enough! I'm just super glad people such as yourself have been enjoying it! <3 It's an indescribable feeling reading comments such as yours. Thank you :)

yo this is a brilliant game  and love the game just got one question i romanced draptor boi Scylez (i mean one the second date the NSFW option) why does it repeat the day after "the scene" its the only thing i'm confused about why doon't it continue after?

still a lovely game also Scylez is my fave btw

Hi there! I'm really glad you're enjoying the game! (I'm also excited you chose Scylez to romance <3 ).  Hopefully I can get you're problem solved too so the game works as intended.

After Scylez's second and NSFW date the game should continue onto Scene 10 (the group meeting scene) and then on to scene 11. Are you having problems with Scene 10 repeating? If you're able to give me a little more info on the issue I'll try my best to get a fix going right away! 

don't need to rush though it mite be because i was using the web browser version which was doing it i have downloaded it but i just carried on with the web version since i made it nearly to the end,  anyway apart  from that i'm really happy with it can't wait to see what's in store for the next part.

also will in the next part will there be more date with the cast (even if you done there romance) i'd love to see more scenes of Scylez best guy t be with (and in many ways to relate to maybe why i like him so much)

also one more thing if you need any ideas give me a holler as an up coming games developer (i'm nearing the end of college) i can always come up with stuff (and to tell you the truth i'm imaging a alternative universe with m character in it XD tbh i can't stop think on it and if you like to know a little about it i don't mind telling you)

Alright, I'll look into both versions of the game still to ensure everything is working as intended. I wouldn't be shocked if there were still a couple bugs hiding out in it that need fixing.

In the next part I am planning on adding more content. Nothing is official but I'm planning some side stories and romances with side characters, and after that probably more dates with the main characters. We'll have to see but most likely I'll be adding more.

And sure I'll keep you in mind ^^ I always love listening to a good idea. It's fun to ponder. The hard part is finding time to work on all the ideas I want to lol

I feel your pain as atm i'm working on a open world Visual novel and you can tell by that alone that it's going to be a lot of work and im always having 101 ideas to add to it but not really having the time to think how could this effect the story etc

anyways i'm always ready for anything and to tell you if lets say you give me something you really like (e.g. fave band or movie) and gove me an genre ill come up with an concept idea for a game in about half and hour

but anyway again nice work with this one of the couple visual novel fur games i come across that i really enjoy so keep up the good work as to be honist i wish i could have the art skill you got XD it's the only thing that lets me down i draw like im 10 (and before you say anything though my dream job is a game designer I want to be more of the ideas man behind it all creating the story characters backstory etc)

...i just noticed how much i'm talking about myself here XD ill stop now good luck and just know that i support you on this (emotionally i'm too poor to give you money sorry ;_;) so all you can do is your best so go for it and never stop

Was never said but is this straight gay or bi?

Mostly bi, You can select if you want to play as male or female, and then most of the romance options will allow you to get sexy with any of the romance options.

So any news about development or when it might release?

(+8)

Yes! All of the art has gotten a revamp and has just finished. The story has gotten a revamp as well and is being proofread at the moment. The writing has almost finished, around 35 of the 40 scenes are finished. And at the moment I'm working on incorporating the earlier scenes into the game so they're working and playable. When I finish half of the game's scenes I'll probably release that here with new art so it's playable and then finish the other half and release the full thing. I don't have a time frame really but I'm hoping to finish the first half in a few months or so. Thanks for your interest! It means a lot :)

I can't wait!

I understand that the request I'm about to make my not be fulfilled but I'd rather put it out there than never saying a thing. Can you PLEASE add a female canine character that the player can date. That's all i wanted to ask and if you do my request, i would be 100% down to invest money into this game

sorry for such a long span of time without replying to your comment. The romance options aren't 100% finalized yet so there's still a chance one may be added and removed. And that being said there's also a chance for a canine character to be added. If one more romance option is added it will definitely be female to even things out a little bit.

Eeeh....  I can translate if you wish, I speak Spanish so I can help with that...  Sorry, I can read, listening in English but...  Writing is a bit difficult (._.

That would be a really big help. I'll finish writing it first and then I'll ask if you'd still be up for that. It's going to be a lot to translate so it will be ok if nobody wants to do it. I think I might just settle for a machine translation then and maybe when people play it they can skim it for mistakes.

Yep, don't worry, I'm glad to help xD

And...  I don't think that's gonna be a problem, after all, one of my hobbys is write. 

i cant help translate but i could help touch up after the machine translation

Love the artwork! Can't wait to actually play it and see the updates sure to come!

Thank you so much! We're working hard to finish writing and making the story much much better and also drawing the rest of the art!
