Wow, thanks for being willing to go through the story again. I'd like to pay particular attention to fleshing Molly out. I feel like she is the flattest character. I want her to have more personality, but still be a main/player character that those going through the expanded version can project themselves onto.

If I do end up expanding this visual novel, I think I might redo the sprites and try to get more custom artwork. I am honestly not fond of using the free sprites and whatnot. They're AMAZING resources, but if I'm going to go into depth on a story, I like to have fairly original visuals as well. What do you think about that? I'd love to hear your input.

Hi Token! Thank you so much for playing, and double thanks for your feedback. It's really helpful to me, as this was my first game ever!

Based on your feedback, and the feedback I've gotten from a few other people, I'm really wanting to create an expanded version of this. I unfortunately did not go as fast during development as more experienced Ren'Py users would have, and as as result, had to squeeze in some semblance of a resolution.... but I honestly DO NOT like it myself. I almost scrapped the whole project, but I wanted to finally finish something.

Hello again! :)

I am really just thrilled at reading your feedback. I can't tell you how much it means to me that you'll spend the time to type all of this out. I was so close to throwing in the towel on this game because I didn't feel like it was worth it. I felt like I had not written anything interesting or worthwhile.

Your interest and your musings has made me actually really want to create an expanded version of this game. I had to rush the ending because it was (A) my first game and (B) a seven day jam. I feel like there's a lot more I could do with this story, and I would really like to expand on it after reading your musings. 

I'd like to delve further into how Sam got to this point, and why Molly is wanting to help her even though Sam clearly doesn't treat Molly very well at this point, either. They used to be best friends (in my head) but I didn't get the chance to explore that much.

I agree that neither of the ending are good, though. In everything I've ever written.... I've never had a happy ending! I think that says more about me as a person than anything... LOL.

Hi! Thank you so much for playing. I'm very happy to hear your thoughts on it.

Both endings are horrible because usually, these things don't have happy endings. It's a bleak outlook on the situation but I honestly have never seen bullying handled appropriately by the school once... not in my personal life, not in my readings, not in the news... It's a complex situation and very difficult to deal with.

It's even harder in this story because Sam has been bullying others for so long and went unchecked by the same school staff that didn't protect her either. Some may find that the endings are "good" because she leaves the school that she was both a bully and a victim at. I don't see it that way, but it was to really make you think about when is it ever truly "okay" to treat someone poorly.

Anyway, I basically just barfed on the keyboard. Thanks again for playing. :)

Hey Ben! Thank you so much for your feedback! I am definitely going to look into expanding on choices and original content in the future. For now, though, I wanted an extremely simple content set to work on and debug. :) I really appreciate your kind words!

Hey friend! I went to download this, but once I launched the .exe I got the following error:

"Data folder not found.

Details: 

There should be 'Test_Data'
folder next to the executable"
