About:

This is a short, rough visual novel  for NaNoRenO based off of my very first story that was recently lost forever. The opening scene is the only thing to be regarded as canon. The entire ending will be re-done and re-written eventually with the exception of a few parts. This project was made to cope with the loss of what once was my coping mechanism.  It's 100% a personal, passion project and should be seen as such. 


Features:

  • Plan your week! Spar with friends, hangout or just study away! 
  • Battle with your friends, each having new skills to offer!
  • Two romantic interests for each heroine... or have them fall for each other!
  • Play through 10 weeks of the school year

General Warning:

I had only intended to release the opening scene but got bored so this happened. Please regard anything beyond as incomplete, unedited, raw or even non-canon... Especially the final scene. Consider the battling to be a mini-game and story-telling mechanic.


Warnings:

Implied abuse, Self-Esteem, Mild alcohol References, Flashing lights

 The opening scene does not depict a real event in Alice's life. It is to be viewed entirely as symbolic.


Things that will be changed:

  • Voice Levels
  • More dynamic battles
  • Add in the final broken
  • Final scene complete overhaul
  • CGs!!
  • More romance scenes 
  • More hang out scenes
  • No glitches 
  • Stop seeing Kane's first romance event twice
  • Add relationship indicators
  • Fix those credits
  • Add stats goals and indicators.

Tips:

  • Each character has different skills to teach you.
  • In order to win someone over, you must view their final event.
  • Sparring gives you the highest relationship boosts if you win.
  • You can romance one person for Alice and one for Anna. Spamming them will do you a world of good


Install instructions

Please read this before asking in the comments. :) It helps keep us on the same page! Keep in mind that the point beyond the demo is extremely rough. You've been warned.


Why didn't you finish?

This gamejam is to make something in a month-- finished or not. I decided to do a demo because I have a sick cat and a job that required me to code for 4 hours a day. 


Why aren't there CGs?

I only had a month lol CGs are coming soon!


The music is too loud!

Be sure to fiddle with options first! The downside of using public domain music is that I don't have time to change it.


I encountered a glitch, now what?

Please tell me ASAP! If it crashed, clicking 'ignore' will temporarily fix the error.


Will Riley ever be eligible?

Perhaps in the future. I didn't think about it in time.


Is there blood in this game?

Not so far. This game is pretty light hearted and the vampire plot hasn't been explored very deeply yet.


Bella?! Alice?! Vampires?! Is this Twilight?!

I've never read it, never seen it~! The names are from my childhood.


Why are there gaps in voice acting in otherwise fully voiced scenes?

There are many reasons. Please bare with it for the time being <3

Not played yet but I wanted to say I saw the image off to the side and I was all "I know that style!" and it's super pretty!I'm sorry you lost your story/coping mechanism, and I hope you can at least over time lovingly make yourself a new one, or do what you can to recreate it. I know how much it sucks to have those kinda things get destroyed, lost, or go poof. :c

Thank you so much!! Ahhhh You're always so sweet to me <3 It was my coping mechanism back in high school, having to deal with leaving my friends. I remember feeling like Alice but acting like Anna so it was just how I handled my day-to-day. It's been 10 years and I've learned a lot. It hurts to be gone but I'm also so grateful to work with the characters again! 

I'm so sorry you've had that happen to you too :( It's so painful...

Hello!

Just played the demo and I am certainly enjoying it so far. The characters are great, especially the leads (I anticipated liking Alice more, with all her sardonic humor, but it's impossible not to like Anna). 

I planned on progressing with the game despite the fact that the grand majority of it will likely be scrapped, but I encountered many errors that restricted me from progressing, which is fine, seeing as you said yourself that this isn't a polished work but just the unrefined beta. 

I am thrilled to see where this game goes, and the voice acting is actually quite good! I wish you the best luck. 

Hi there! Thank you so, so much! 

I'm actually really laughing at that considering I really don't like Anna myself but I'm so glad everyone really likes her <3 


I'm so sorry about the errors! The last part of the game was made in the last few days of the jam and I admittedly had limited time to play test! It was just honestly to say I didn't slack off this month even though I really, really did LOL I'll be sure to comb through and fix things up later! If you had any bugs you remember, please let me know!  I'll keep them in mind for any framework that remains when I go to complete it :)


Thank you so much for your lovely comment! I appreciate it! <3 I'm glad you enjoyed what wasn't broken!

The game seems interesting and promising, but I'm unsure if I should play now or once the overhaul is done, as you're saying the whole ending will change. Do you know when will you release the final version?

Thank you so much!

 I'm going to try to overhaul it soon, I just wanted to have something out for the end of the jam :)  There is a message when the intro is over so up to that point is staying! I'm not sure when the final version will be done since I want to really take my time to edit it and make it worth while!

Yeah, I can understand - it's important to make something you'll be proud of!

I may play till the message pops up then! Thanks!

I hope you enjoy ;; I apologize it's so rough ahh
