After testing and retesting a billion times, enlisting friends to edit for me (because my brain is no longer capable of spellchecking my script) I've finally uploaded the demo for people to play.
I'm very excited to see what people have to say about it, whether it's good or bad. I feel like I've just been incubating this idea alone for so long, and this is the first time I'll get to know whether someone other than myself even thinks this is entertaining. I'm not an experienced writer when it comes to humor, so my main concern is that people won't find it funny... (especially because it's labelled a comedy game lol)
In terms of writing progress, I feel like I've taken a few steps forward and like a marathon backward. Maybe this is just me, but I want to make the romantic development in the routes somewhat realistic and so I've been struggling to pick a number for how many scenes there should be. I originally had around 15, and was almost done with them for Roy's route. After pondering over it, I tentatively added another five to the outline. Thus I'm further back in writing than I was before... OTL
We'll see how it goes. I've set the game's tentative release date for this Valentines Day. Here's hoping I make it.
This week has been my most productive yet for writing! As of now, common route and six of Roy's scenes have been written. I currently have 15 total scenes planned for Roy, but I might end up adding more as I go. I feel like I'm going to develop attachment issues when I'm done with this route haha
The status of the demo is completely based on how fast our sprite artist works. All of the GUI and writing has been coded into ren'py, but we're just missing Case and MC's sprites. As soon as those are done, I can plop them in and release the demo!
My head's going to explode because I'm so excited for the art to start coming in. Main menu art, sprites, chibis, and CG's have been successfully commissioned. All there's left to do is wait, something I'm notoriously bad at... OTL
But to celebrate the first update post on this site, here's some chibis of the RD boiz!
