I'm actually removing all the non-first person stuff from an upcoming demo since it doesn't quite fit with the rest of it. Not sure where she addresses his gender, maybe she says "dude" at some point. In any case, May is down with girls too which is something that'll be addressed in the next demo.
Any plans for a full on game are still up in the air, so thanks for the feedback!
So there'll be no cut-scenes of May and the player? Or are you making it so you just can't see the player in cut-scenes?
Just for this teaser demo for now, there will definitely be more movie-like cutscenes in the final game to go along with more character options.
Sweet O:) Welcome and thank you for working on this! :)
I played through the demo again, and here's the mentions of his gender I found:
"Jealous? I may have a couple dozen "hazubandos" but I've only got one "booifurendo"."
"Hey, how about you go on the "you already ate and don't get a say in what I have for dinner" diet, Mr. Healthy. I'm hungry for pizza."
"What? It's a thing, Mr. Health nut. I saw a guy do it on the internet. In fact, there's your diet right there. Degrease that sucker."
"Aaaand, you're still carrying an empty backpack and a map… OK dude."
The one I was thinking of was a reply option early on: "It's just a map. A guy can't have a map?" I guess in my head I turned the others into callbacks to that, sorry. (She also refers to Wilson as "guy" once or twice, I probably put him and the mouse dude in the same mental bin.)
I'm not sure about this one, but together with the others it feels like it contributes: "Plus if we were both fat our bellies would smack together when we do it." I could go into details, but… yeah.
Finally, the general stereotype of "you're supposed to like action movies, I'm supposed to like romance movies" seems gender-based… especially since May ends up liking the action movies far more than the romance movies.
(I really do miss her reactions every time I encounter that "no animations" bug <\3)
two questions then; will you be able to pick your characters "look" or gender? Also, is May only going to have that one outfit?
So far the plan is for each character to have at least one outfit per season, not sure yet how the player character will be handled but gender will definitely be an option and it will factor in to the planned social simulation.
