Didn't have a lot of time today, but I made a couple UI things: the whole startup sequence and an animation for when you get a reward for completing a quest. Plus, we finally have a name!! Taṇhā is a Buddhist term for thirst, craving, or desire- perfect for a game about monks breaking their sacred vows to get with each other!! :P
Still can't give gameplay screenshots (I promise we have a programmer working hard, the game's just not in a functionally sharable state at the moment), but here's a sample of what the map is lookin' like. I think I may be spending way too much time on this project, but meh. WHO NEEDS TO STUDY FOR FINALS?? Not me!
And I promise this is the last time I'll upload these character portraits, but I've done some additional shading and colour correction and made the outlines coloured instead of solid black and they're completely finished now so yay! (The stripes on some of the characters looks weird in .png form, but they a lot better in-game.)

The glitching might not fit with the aesthetic of this particular game, but I think it's cool so whatevs. The running animation needs... somehing. I don't know. I really don't want to make it bigger and make traversal feel claustrophobic, but I can't get the smoothness I want with so few pixels.
And here's a quick quick slide-through of all the characters, breaking pixels and gettin' dizzy!
Haven't created an entry yet as we're still coming up with a title, but here's a couple preliminary mock-ups of what will become an exploration-based monk dating sim.
p.s. The white border looks a little funny recurring and against white background but eh
