A really nice demo! I hope you finish it or at least extend the demo soon, I'm looking forward to knowing more about the two main characters and the monsters they might find!

Thank you for your words! And you are completely right: the focus wasn't the romance this time. I wanted to have a story with steampunk elements and moral choices, where the protagonist just happened to be gay and open to casual sex with someone he shouldn't date.
I hope you enjoy more of My Burning Heart, which is definitely more focused on romance and sexy moments ;)
I agree with you about that kind of college teachers, to be honest: I had the bad luck of finding some during my Uni years and found them despicable and unprofessional. But in this case, I think this kind of behavior fits Marc's character. Someone has to be the baddie or create trouble for the protagonist or we wouldn't have story, right?
Anyway, I'm glad you liked at least Pol. I hope you enjoy my next games!
That's odd.. I got a comment on Steam yesterday, barely an hour after I posted the game there (so I assumed it was someone who had already played the itchio version and only played the Steam one to get the achievements). It said they were able to get all the achis but one, end 12, and I checked and saw that, effectively, there's a mistake in my code for it. But the rest should unlock fine. Are you playing on a Mac computer, perhaps?
The unskippable credits are unskippable, sorry XD
That's odd! :(
Anyway, I'm going to keep the itchio payment method as Paypal only (because it's more convenient for me, sorry). But next week the game will be up on Steam, and you can buy with card there.
Best of luck, Ivan! I'm very happy for you for the fact that you now have a full time job as a writer. Maybe, with time, you feel the need to come back to VN developing, but even if that isn't the case, you know in this community everyone appreciate your work and you as a person.
Chasing the Stars still needs a couple of updates... and then we'll run a Kickstarter campaign for My Burning Heart so the artist can work on finishing it full time (since art is his only income). I hope it will be out in a month/month and a half, but you know how these things are.
Sorry, I'm finishing the last details for Chasing the Stars right now. I'll get to Blood and Lust very soon, though: only the "good ending" and the love scene are missing, and also some game features that I would like to implement, and that require coding time without rush.
Sorry, I need to do a couple of small fixes, but I won't have any time until the weekend :(
But's it's definitely tiny things (finishing Steam achievements and updating the notice about adult content because they found it more "adult oriented" than it currently says on the Steam store), so of course it's coming out!
Thank you very much for your detailed review!
And you are completely right about the speed option... :( The GUI was already made when I chose it, and it lacks some options, true. I'll try to add the text speed bar!
No, don't worry: the game is in their review queue, but just for them to check the game works fine on their end, nothing more. I suppose they will give the get go in a couple of days (but they don't work in the weekends).
Anyway, yes, of course: as soon as Steam keys are available, you'll be able to claim one with your itchio purchase.
You're completely right, sorry T_T But I'm glad you like it so far!
The fact that you go with Marc doesn't mean you are "in his route": think of the game more of like a story with just one route and multiple endings
lol Sorry, too many projects at the same time... Chasing the Stars will be released on January 4th... in two days! So right now I'm focusing on that. But I'll go back to Blood and Lust and My Burning Heart as soon as CtS is released and I'm sure everything works fine.
The original plan was releasing My Burning Heart during the summer... after running a small Kickstarter for it.
But since my main project, Chasing the Stars, has been delayed, it wouldn't look right to run a Kickstarter for another project. I apologize for that. Until Chasing the Stars is out, I'm afraid My Burning Heart is on hold.
Anyway, the game script is completely outlined and the art is 70% done, so once we go back to it, it'll be a matter of weeks to finish the VN.
I loved this story! Moving, cute, with a touch of fantasy... The ending is a tad bittersweet for my taste, though, but I understand it fits the protag, so he can move on and make his way in life.
I've just played the game and, same as with Tomai and AWOO, it left me with a silly smile on my face! I just love the feeling of positivity of your games, where love and friendship are always deeply linked, highlighted by the bright colors and the soft, rounded lines of your art. Your sex scenes are also always joyful and pure, a delight to read!
I'm looking forward to the final version of AWOO, and to everything else you two will deliver in the future!
Aaaaw, thank you so much for the detailed review!
Someone told me the same about one of the tracks, but I haven't been able to catch which one it is :( All the music was supposed to be cleared for commercial purposes, so I'll listen again with headphones and download the track again or replace it. So thanks for the heads up!
