Thank you so much for all the kind words! We're really happy that you enjoyed our game :D

Joyce always leaves at the end of part 1. It would have been nice to have some variation there but since this event influences everything that happens afterwards it would have significantly increased the workload to have multiple outcomes at that point already :'D
The branching only really starts in part 2 but even if you can't see it yet, most of the choices from the first half already influence all of that!

Unfortunately we can't work full-time on //TODO: today right now, but we're glad you're looking forward to part 2 and we hope you'll enjoy that as well when it comes out!

Thank you! We're really happy that you like our game :D
We're trying to make part 2 as good as we can, so hopefully you'll like that as well when it's finally released.

Have a good day, too <3

Thank you so much! We're really happy that you like the game (and the changes) <3

And thanks a lot for the feedback! 
The transitions being to immediate is a good point. Fixing that shouldn't be too much trouble either.
Teal's inner monologues and how long-winded they can be is something we're aware of and once our to-do lists are a bit shorter we'll try to edit them some more. 
Skin color variations is something we wanted to include but we'll have to see if we can fit this into our schedules. Still, we're aware that this is another important point for inclusion, so even if we don't find the time to implement it in //TODO: today, we'll make sure to include it in our plans early on for future projects!
I checked the script where Zen and Snow talk and the only "he" pronoun was in one of Snow's lines, so if this was a typo it seems to be fixed now. 
Joyce's departure feeling out of place is another fair point! The way it is now mostly works if Teal is more focused on Joyce than on Phoenix. We'll take a look if we can edit it a bit more so it makes sense in either situation.

Feedback like this is really helpful, so thanks again! Unfortunately we can't promise to address all of it as our schedules are already pretty packed, but we'll do what we can and definitely keep it in mind as we work on finishing it!

We hope we'll manage to finish part 2 soon and that you'll enjoy that, too! 
Thanks for playing! (again) <3

Thank you! We're really happy you like it (。’▽’。)♡

Aaah that's really cute! And the attention to detail is great! 
Getting fanart is really exciting so thanks for drawing Joyce <3

Motivation can be tricky and it's different for everyone but we hope you'll find something that works for you! Teal's struggle with it is partly based on personal experiences so it only shows one side of it but we're trying to also show some other perspectives as the game progresses.

Thanks for playing (and drawing) and we wish you  good luck with your art!

Aww that's great! Thanks for drawing Teal :D

Aaaw we're happy you enjoyed the devlogs! :'3

It's only the end of the //TODO: today character design devlogs so far. So a lot of hopefully interesting devlogs are still going to be written while we work. There will be new art related content too! :D

(Taken from our devlog)

Thank you! We're really happy that you enjoyed the game!
Giving the player some control over Teal's situation was important to us so we're glad to hear that you liked the amount of choices. We're doing our best to finish the second half in the near future and we hope you'll enjoy that as well once it's out!
Thanks for playing <3

Thank you! We're happy you enjoyed it <3

Thank you! We're really happy that you enjoyed our game <3

Unfortunately we don't have a clear release date right now. There were a few dates we aimed for previously but ultimately we had to delay the release of the second half (If you're interested, we elaborated a bit on this in last week's devlog). Right now we're trying to finish the game as quickly as possible but to avoid another delay we'll hold off on announcing another release date until we're really sure that we can make it in time

We're really happy to hear that! The second half will differ quite a bit depending on the decisions from the first half but we hope that each path will expand a bit on everything that's already there.

We were trying to make the game more inclusive with the pronoun and preference selection so it's always great to hear when it's appreciated! And it's always exciting to see other games that add options like this because we'd love to see the medium become more inclusive! Good luck with your visual novel and thanks for playing our game <3

Thank you! We're happy you like it <3

Aw, thank you! We're really happy to hear that you liked it! 
And thanks for the good luck! There's still quite a bit of work left, but we'll try to keep everyone posted on our progress.

Thanks for playing <3

We were hoping that people could connect with the game because it's about a few things that are important to us. Giving a hopeful outlook on situations like the one Teal is facing is definitely one of our goals although unfortunately it's not complete yet so the conclusion is still missing.
Above all we wanted the story to feel genuine and even if things aren't always great, we wanted to keep at least a small bit of positivity. The second half will hopefully add to that because the current ending isn't how it will ultimately end, but it will still take a few weeks until it's ready.

We're happy that something we made could make you feel a little more hopeful and we hope things will get better for you! (Although we know how difficult it is to deal with depression)
Thanks for playing <3

Thank you! We're happy you like the game!

We also hope that it will become more common to let players choose pronouns and preferences in games (especially when there's romance).
The wait for part 2 shouldn't be too long now but we'll announce more when we can say for sure!

Thanks for playing (and commenting) <3

Thank you! We're happy you enjoyed it! We planned this as a one-shot so there probably won't be a sequel, but I'm sure they'll find a way to make everything work ;)

Thank you so much for the kind words! We just started this project because we wanted to make a visual novel but seeing the response has been amazing. We're really happy that you enjoyed the game and we'll do our best to make the second half just as good!

Thank you! This really means a lot to us <3

We want to make sure that the game turns out good, so don't worry, we won't rush it.
Even so, we'll do our best to finish it soon and comments like this one give us even more motivation to keep going.

So thank you! We're happy you like our game!

Thank you so much! We're really happy that you enjoy the game!
There has been a bit of a delay but we're trying to finish the rest of the game in September, so hopefully it won't be that much of a wait anymore. We're excited for people to play the full game and we hope you'll enjoy the second half, too <3

Thank you! We're happy you like it!
And sorry about the wait. We'll try to finish part 2 as soon as possible!

Thank you so much! We just made this game for fun so it's great to hear that you enjoyed it, too! And we're glad you liked the endings :D

Thank you! We're happy to hear you enjoyed the game! 
The doubts and worries of the protagonist partly come from personal experiences, so we know how difficult it can be to let go of such feelings. Dealing with that is one of the major themes of the game, so we're always happy to see when our story resonates with people. Even if we're in no position to give advice we hope you find out what works for you and we'll try to finish part 2 in the near future so you can experience the full game!

Thanks for playing <3

Sorry about that! We updated the build, so the TeachMeOnegai.py file is back where it should be.
Please let us know if you run into any other problems! (Otherwise, we hope you enjoy the game~)

Yup, we are! Semel's name technically comes from a different pun but we couldn't pass up any opportunities for pastry related jokes that only make sense in German... So we're glad you like the shirt~

Aw, thank you! 

Also thank you for playing the game! :3

Thank you! We're really happy that you liked our game and the characters!
We tried to choose gender-neutral names for everyone but apparently that didn't quite work out for Joyce :'D
It's good to hear that you got used to it though.

We'll try to finish part 2 as soon as possible but we will announce more as soon as we can estimate a more specific date.
Thanks for playing <3

Thank you so much! We are really happy to hear this!
By the time part 2 is finished there will be quite  a bit more art, too so we hope you'll enjoy that as well :D

Thanks for playing <3

Thank you for the kind words! We're really happy that you enjoyed the game! It's great  to hear that the plot holds up for multiple playthroughs and that you like Teal and the others. Part 2 is still in development but we're excited to share it soon as it's ready! (Hopefully in August :'D)
Thanks for playing <3

It's great to hear that you felt included! Seeing how many people appreciate it, adding gender neutral pronouns turned out to be one of our better decisions and we're really glad we included it!

We thought about clearer ways to frame the romantic and sexual preferences but this was the best we could think of without completely breaking the fourth wall :'D

We're happy you look forward to Part 2! And thanks for playing (multiple times even <3)

Thank you for all the kind words <3 We're really happy that you like our game so much!

We'd love to see more games add gender neutral pronouns to their character choices. Especially because just from a writing perspective it's not much more work than having binary options.

We're happy we stuck with Joyce as a name, too! There were a few other names we came up with during conception but we decided on this one pretty quickly :'D

Looking back there really was quite a bit of work and effort that went into this so we'll continue to do our best to make Part 2 good!

Thanks for playing (and commenting) <3

Thank you so much! We're really happy you like the game :D
It's always great to hear that people can relate to the story and the characters (maybe save for the unpleasant aspects that might come from it :'D) and we're happy you found so many moments of the game enjoyable!

Also thanks for the feedback! You do make a valid point with the heavy text. Since this was originally made for a game jam we didn't get nearly as much time for editing as we would have liked so while we are working on part 2 we are also trying to refine part 1 some more.

Thanks for the good luck and we're looking forward to finishing part 2 as well!

Thank you so much for writing this comment <3 We're really happy you like the game!
Being able to choose gender and preferences is something we're always happy to see in a game like this ourselves so including it was one of the first decisions we made. And it's great to hear that it's appreciated!

We're sorry to hear that you are in a difficult situation right now and wish you the best of luck that it will get better soon!
Escapism is something probably most people deal with in some way and parts of Teal's and Joyce's views on it definitely come from personal experiences. So it was important to us not to paint it as either entirely bad or good since there are usually more complex issues involved.
Even if the game may have failed at serving as a distraction we hope that this aspect wasn't entirely unpleasant for you :'D

The ending of part 1 is always like this. It would be nice if there was a way to change it but since the events of part 2 are affected by it quite a bit, it would have been too big of a branching point for us to handle.

And don't worry, Joyce is romanceable and if you choose to look for them, they'll appear again in part 2 ;)

We're happy you like him :D And not to spoil anything but if you want to, this won't be the last time you see Joyce ;)

Thank you so much for saying this! We're happy you like the game and there will definitely be some more opportunities to spend time with Phoenix in part 2! There will also be an option to get closer to Phoenix but any hugs this might entail will probably stay virtual ;)

Thank you so much for writing this comment! We're really happy you like our game :D
It was one of our goals that the story and Teal are relatable so it's great to hear that this was the case for you! Parts of Teal's story come from a fairly personal place so we hope you could take something from it and we're happy that that the results of part one made you feel better! Even if we can't say yet when exactly the rest of the game will be finished, we'll do our best to make it good and hope you'll enjoy that as well <3

Thank you! We don't have a specific date yet but we'll try to finish it before summer. We'll announce more when we have a better idea when exactly the second part will be complete

(Edited 2 times)

Well, what can we say... :'D We're happy you're looking forward to part 2! And our smol bean may or may not make an appearance again - it's up to you ;) Thanks for playing!
