I'm glad that you liked it! I'm hoping to make doing a short VN an annual thing. I do a lot of writing and RPing with friends, and both this and May I Take Your Order were written with some of those original characters in kind. I'll probably focus on another character next year!
Also, what's that acronym mean? All I can think of is Dissociative Identity Disorder, which I'm guessing isn't what you mean.

Whooo! Game completed and posted to the jam. What a ride.

Thank you very much for the input! I'm still tweaking things and will be releasing the final version on Wednesday* night. Could you let me know what gave you trouble, and what endings you did get, so I can make the game mechanics more clear?
*Edit: Thursday night, sorry! 

Thank you so much! And don't worry, you played it in like, a day. That's a prompt turnaround! ^u^ I'll get right on fixing all three of those!

Marvelous, thank you so much for the detailed feedback and the screenshots! I've pulled up the script and edited accordingly. 



Playtest build ready! If anyone would like to play it and give feedback, now is the time, and it would be much appreciated! https://alexisroyce.itch.io/offthecuff/devlog/57236/playtest-build-ready

Hey man no worries! I would probably have PMed you about it anyway; I don't wanna be a strict rules lawyer about it all.

Whoa thank you so much! While writing it, I got really nervous that nobody else would like the combination of horror, romance and comedy I wanted to make. Hearing such high praise fills me with confidence as I stare down my next deadline!

Heck yeah, thank you so much! I’ll let you know here in a few days when the playtest version is ready for you!

Thank you very much! I'll comment back to you here in a week when it's ready. :D

And with a word count of 23,000, done with the bulk of the text! Looking for playtesters, now. Update here: https://alexisroyce.itch.io/offthecuff/devlog/55893/this-game-needs-playtesters

Still trucking, with another update, and a mini audio drama! https://alexisroyce.itch.io/offthecuff/devlog/53944/this-game-has-a-sound-check I'm also gonna edit the top post and put the artwork for the finalized baner up there.

Then consider me subscribed to this thread! Good luck, and I'm looking forward mixing up coffee with this little ghost friend. ^u^

It looks adorable so far! Are you thinking about giving the drinks also spooky and cute names or designs? If there's cute food in a game, and I get to make the food, I always end up playing the game. XD

Working on some CGs:




And that's all for right now!

Heya Rae! Nice to see you on itch.io! And working on this game is more than fun, it's addictive! I'm having so much trouble focusing on getting my usual work done! XD

Heya! I'm making Off the Cuff! I've always wanted to try my hand at making something pretty risque. Trying to shake off feeling embarrassed about these sorts of things and just GO for it! It'll be a short, free, very BDSMy visual novel, where the main character is locked up and has a bunch of conversation options with the captor, trying to trick him into giving you the means of escape. (Or, you could, you know, just sit back and enjoy. Main character's a bit of a freak. )

I'm currently over 12k words in, and I've got rough assets in place, as well as the scripting for the core gameplay loop. I'm building it in Ren'Py, which I've used before. I'm hoping to finish the bulk of the text before the end of October, so I have all of November to draw assets, and record sound effects and narrate the whole thing! It's not much longer than the VN I made last year, so I'm confident that I'll have it all done by the November 30th Lewd Jam deadline.

Here's a mockup with roughs:



That's the antagonist. And here's the main character: 



Thank you for stopping by! It's been fun writing what I have so far! If this goes well, making weird, pain-romance games might turn into an annual thing for me, and I'll do it a third time next year!

New devlog! Game's passed 12k words. Man. Exit has taken a lot of damage, and dealt out even more sass. Gotta make sure that my Sass to Damage ratio is right. Also tossed in some images of our protag, master of escapes Dea "Exit" DeLus. Here's a preview of one of them, though this classy outfit will not be making an appearance: 


I hope things go well with your engine! I am indeed using Ren'Py. I've played around with other VN engines, but Ren'Py is, in my eyes, still the most versatile.

I'm well over seven thousand words in. And hey, might as well share a handful of them:

Awww, thank you! I'm pretty terrible at being part of communities, though. Joining this jam is kinda my attempt to branch out a little bit more; we'll see if I got back into social hiding afterward. XD But I guess that's it, then, huh? Maybe we just gotta be that type of person if we want to see more if them? I dunno. As always, still working on it!

Thanks! It can be really hard to nail down things, like a color palette and themes, because choosing something means losing everything else. But when you choose something, your project gets an identity, and narrowing your focus can open up your mind in a really cool way!

Cool designs! I especially like the cloven hooves. Very cool way to do the feet.

Thank you very much! I do comics and convention tables to make a living, but I always want to branch out and try learning new mediums. And getting to make a visual novel was just...weirdly empowering, if that makes sense. I think it's easy to feel like some things are out of your reach, or that nobody would want to play or read the sorts of stuff you want to make. But finishing May I Take Your Order kinda reminded me that so long as I can be proud of something, it's worth making!
Good luck on your entry, too! I'll be rooting you on!

I'm a little over a thousand words into writing the script, and I've started work on the assets! Got one of the base poses for the Antagonist done, as well as roughs for the background and the textbox. I think I'm going to go with a greenish color palette. I want it to feel dark considering the subject matter, but I don't want to go too grimdark. The protag also has bright red hair, so I think that element of her design will pop nicely.

WIP:

Oh my word, I hadn't even considered that I might be able to use or need secondary logos; thank you for the idea! And you're right, animating #9 might look really good. Perhaps I could use #12 for the cover and itch.io page, and an animated version of #9 for the title screen. By then, people will already know the name of the game, so legibility might not be so much of an issue? Thank you again!

Thanks for the morale boost! I’ve already made a short VN and posted it on it on itch.io before, though. I can code in Ren’Py, and I did some fun bits with the code last year, but I’m planning on keeping it pretty simple this time ‘round. Maybe. :3

Off The Cuff: game page here!

Edit: Adding some WIPs for the CGs up here, where they're easier to see:





----------------------------------------------------------------------

I'm deeply terrible at branding the things I make, so I've been playing around with logo concepts this morning. #9 and #12 are my favs, but I'm totally open to crit!


This is so cute and chill! What a nice, relaxing time. Although the lovely art has really put me in the mood for sweets!

Thank you very much! I look forward to it. :D

Thank you very much! I hope you like it, and if you have any comments or crit, please let me know. It's my first release but I had a really good time and I'd love to know how I can improve.
