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.

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.
Oh my goodness, I forgot how awesome dialogues in this game are... All three routes (Kane, Bella, Brandon... plus THAT ONE ending) I played are amazingly heartwarming, story is interesting, and humour is top of the line. Thank you for this game, I certainly don't regret playing it again.
Anyway, I just wanted to ask one (possibly stupid) question. I noticed Kierce is an option for hangouts (Anna), does that mean he has ending available? I just got one scene, so I'm just curious if I'm missing something, or his scenes are not available. If he has no ending, or if it's an error as with Alice and Anna (those two are the best - their interactions..., also some of their scenes continue, if I choose to "Ignore" the exception that occures in Anna x Alice hangouts, but not the other way around), you don't have to fix it, if you don't want to. I just wondered.
Ahh I apologize for the late reply! Thank you so much ;; This made my day <3 <3 I hope to finish polishing sometime in the future!
Not stupid at all! Anna x Kierce are supposed to be a pairing but quite honestly I don't remember if it's in the game yet since I intended to re-write the route when things looked up a bit! I fully intend to fix them soon :) Thank you so much for playing and for the tidbits of help! You made my day and I'll be sure to polish it when I can <3
No need to apologize, I thank you a lot for reply.
Anyway, I tried to reach Kierce ending again now, and it seems I just wasn't spamming hangouts enough before - it indeed is there - and even though I have to admit that I did not like his character as much as others before, that changed now :). So that was mistake on my part, and I'm sorry for that.
Thanks a lot again, good luck with everything, and take your time (as I said - enjoyed this game a lot so far).
Hello! Agh I'm so sorry about that! I'll fix those soon. I never ended up finishing the original game due to my cat passing away last year and I haven't had the heart to continue (He was sitting next to me while I worked through it so it's been hard to touch)
I'm so sorry about these errors. I'll see if I can get around to fix it soon. :) Thanks for playing either way!
I like this game so far. It's suprisingly relaxing, soundtrack suits it well, characters are great, Anna easter egg is hilarious, and I'm looking forward to it. Just, I think I encountered one glitch. It seems Kane hangouts are working as Brandon hangouts (causing the same effect in the end). Sorry for bothering, nice game so far.
No bother at all! Thank you for playing :) Thanks for the glitch notice as well! I think I discovered this to be the case recently as well as a few more things with Brandon and Kane defying my coding to battle each other for Alice's affection haha So I'll be sure to look into it!
Thank you again for playing <3 I appreciate it! ahhh
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...
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.
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?
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!
