right_angle_bracket_by_diegovainilla-d9j Summary
 
It's a brand new school year and you just transferred into W3 Academy. As you begin your 3rd Year, you meet some very interesting people who have issues of their own. School events and festivals lead to some interesting developments between you and a potential romantic interest. But be careful, there's more than meets the eye. You may struggle, cry, or plead in this not-so-ordinary high school life.

Director's Notes
Hello, everyone! Thank you so much for your interest in our game. The goal of this game is mostly to bring awareness to some very dark and sensitive topics that many high school students face today. Of course, there are so many issues that our youth struggles with, so we only tackle a few of the bigger topics that are sometimes swept under the rug (like bullying, sexual assault, gender crisis). This may offend some people, but overall, I hope to bring light on these topics. There are so many very. real. problems that people around us continue to deal with. I would like to dedicate this to those who struggled, are struggling, and will struggle with these things.

God... ya' did a good job with the artwork, the characters really look like anime-ish versions of browsers xo) Also try not go overboard with the main theme, try to make it subtle enough so that it doesn't look exagerated and the message you're trying to pass gets through the Reader\Player.

Awww, thank you very much! I'm glad you like the artwork. ^ ^

Yes, I will hopefully bring up the sensitive topics in such a way that isn't "all up in your face" to the reader, which would be the opposite effect of what we'd hope! :)

Unless you mean the web browser theme... in which case, we hope it will provide comic relief for an otherwise dark story! ^ ^ We are hoping to balance it out with some fun elements along with sensitive, serious topics.

Also, just finished the rest of the character sketches AND the logo last night!! WHOOO! Update here:

Hi all! Today's update is the UI assets I made so far~

I'd say I'm about 25-30% done with all the GUI needed for the 1st episode of the game. :D

Also, we're doing a major re-haul for the demo being released on November 6th. Instead of coming out with 3 short arcs (potentially unpolished), we will be extending Arc 1 to be a little longer and make it SUPER polished for a teaser~ :D

Oh, and almost forgot~~~~

 

Big Announcement!

So based on some feedback on other groups/forums, we've decided to focus on JUST Arc 1, instead of 3 shorter arcs. We will be extending Arc 1 to incorporate a few of the story elements in other arcs, and will be releasing just 1 episode for our demo on November 6.

Another thing is...... because of our expanded long-term scope, we are adding a couple more characters! 1 was requested very heavily. A very... "dark" character. XD Ehehe~~ Hope you guys like the addition.

Apologies for not updating yesterday. I felt like I didn't make enough progress to warrant a post, but now I have a bit more to share today!

Here we have the Main Menu Screen. Our programmer is hoping to get some animations going (a "nice-to-have" feature). And the save/load screen along with the gallery!

With this, I'd say I've tackled about 50% of the GUi for Arc 1! Just have to make the screen for settings, Mini-Game, the MC's portrait screen, and "The Love Net" (book filled with each character's bio). If we have time, we'd like to include a "Map" of different locations you can go to, but it may not happen! XD

P.S. Please ignore some of my super old sketches/drawings for a long time ago. > ~ < yikes;; embarrassing.

Finally, we had the idea that if you finish the game once (in this case, the demo), your main menu screen will look glitched like this:

I'm wondering......... am I revealing too much? LOL I should leave some surprise shouldn't I... *hmmmmmm*

Also, we'll be recruiting some voice actors to see if we can include a nice extra element to the game!

Why is safari the girl?

I always thought chrome or opera would be more girly...

And I always pictured explorer as an old over bulky man...

outdated and redundant

Chrome just turned 18 we don’t want anyone to mistake her for a minor
