I apologize for the long wait, but the zine is up!

Why is this marked as being for Mac? It's just an exe file, which is PC only.

Nano Space plays fine for me, and when I first open Ore Miner 2 it displays everything fine, but as soon as I load a world it goes all weird like in the picture I posted, and if I escape out of it, all the menus look like that too.

I bought the game and the download page doesn't have the Steam key even though the game page says it should have one.

I bought the game and tried to play it, but the screen looks like this. I'm on a Mac running Yosemite. 


Thank you for trying, but I still think there's an issue with this: "Our actual idea is to make the a game about a guy who cannot feel romantic love then surpasses this to end the story in good terms." This promotes the idea that being aromantic is bad and it's better to experience romantic feelings than not. It sounds like you're saying that a person can't be "in good terms" if they're aromantic, which is still a problem. Many aromantic people still have strong friendships and other bonds with people, and find fulfillment in that. But still, thank you for trying to understand and listening to me!

There's still some issues with how you're referring to aromanticism as something people "cope" with or "overcome". Aromanticism is an identity, not a "condition." There is nothing bad about being aromantic. Please talk to some actual aromantic people if you want to make this game not offensive.

Also, see: https://www.asexuality.org/ and  http://wiki.asexuality.org/Aromantic

...Asexuality isn't a disorder. Neither is being aromantic. They're sexual and romantic orientations, not something to be fixed. I'm asexual and there's nothing wrong with me!

I just noticed that the game is on Steam now, so I was wondering if Itch purchasers would get a key?

Will people who bought the game earlier get a steam key?

Yaoi Game Jam 2018 community · Created a new topic Discord?

Is there going to be a Discord server for this jam? It would be nice to get to know the other participants.

Thanks! Got my key!

Hi! I bought Neofeud and when trying to get my Steam key it said there were no keys available. My purchase was supposed to come with a key. Will there be more later?

Wow! This project has so many people working on it! Glad the jam inspired something like this!

It worked!

I've been able to play other Ren'Py games with no problem. I have OS X 10.10.5. I'll try re-downloading the files.

I tried running the game and got the following:

I'm sorry, but an uncaught exception occurred.
Before loading the script.

I'm using a Mac, trying to run the game from a flash drive.

Sooo cute! Made me wish I could experience a beach with rainbow sand! Was Bell intended to be read as autistic? As a queer autistic person myself, that's my headcanon.

My browser window is too small to see all the arrows at once. :( I keep getting cats.

Fixed the save functionality. Hope it works for you too!

Thanks for letting me know! I'll look into why this is happening!

Death of Magic community · Created a new topic Mac Build?

First of all, this sounds awesome! I think I met you at GaymerX last year and I still have some swag related to your game. But I must know, will there be a Mac build? All I have access to now is a Mac.

Ooh, a game with demisexuality in it! Will there be a mac release?

Haven't gotten as much done as I would have liked, but the deadline's been extended a day, so I still have this much left to do in less than 2 days:

  • Write 2 random events
  • Write 6 class periods
  • Draw sprites for 2 counsellor characters (or 7 characters (4 counsellors and 3 friends) if I want to replace all the placeholder sprites)
  • Finish auditorium background
  • Find some photos for a few short scene backgrounds
  • All the maybes are out for now

This seems much more doable now!

OMG I actually knew what this was about before I clicked it!

Will there ever be a Mac build?

(1 edit)

Well, I've made a lot of progress on writing, fixing transitions and transforms, and did some art fixes. I'm 26,000 words in, including placeholders to be expanded.

Still To Do:

  • Write 3.5 random events (so far I've written half of one and plotted out in detail the other 26 for the full game)
  • Write 12 class periods (so far I've written 4 and planned the rest for the full game)
  • Write 3 class skipping events (so far I've written 1)
  • Finish sprites for 4 friend characters, player character, 4 teachers, and 4 counsellors
  • Finish drawing auditorium background
  • Maybe: work on original background art
  • Maybe: work on minigames for ability classes

YIKES! I've got a lot to finish in like ten days. But I've got the gist of what I need to finish for the demo to be done in time. I'll release it even if it's not totally done though; I'll just leave in the placeholders. The main structure is all done.

Mac download?

Uploaded a short demo! https://metaparadox.itch.io/the-a-list

More screenshots!


Here's some screenshots of the game as it is currently. I'll probably be done with an introductory demo by today or tomorrow. (And yes, I'm aware the character in the screenshot looks like Danny Phantom with purple hair. It wasn't intentional.)


Gahhhh! Why am I joining another game jam??? I'm already doing Yuri Jam, but I couldn't help myself. So instead of doing something big and in-depth like with Yuri Jam, I'm doing a much shorter, less complicated visual novel about asexual superheroes with "useless" powers who get their turn to save the day.

Right now I have a few character ideas:

  • Protagonist: Julia Estevez, a.k.a. The Gray Lady, biromantic gray-asexual, healing powers
  • Greg Watson, a.k.a. The Human Plant, gay demisexual, controls plant growth
  • Emily Peters, a.k.a. Ace of Hearts, aromantic asexual, emotion manipulation powers
  • Wilma Long, a.k.a. Cake Girl, biromantic asexual, heat vision (but is a pacifist and refuses to use her powers offensively)

They all go to a superhero high school in Astra City, MD. The plot begins with them meeting in the school's GSA, getting placed together in a squad at the bottom of the school charts, and end up assigned to community service. While they're out cleaning up the city and doing good deeds, a supervillain attacks the school with a hypno ray! They may be the only ones left who can save their school!

Wow! This is really interesting! I did see a part where Ana was referred to as Ame though.

Just played through the demo! I love your art and this is a very promising concept! I liked the interactions Lavinia has with her mother. I just have a few nitpicks. The thing with the cookies and the neighbor happened very suddenly, and it took me a while to realize that time had passed because the background didn't change. Also, the word "invention" is misspelled in the Lavinia-Mother conversation. And at the end, it says she begins to work at home without the hardware store background changing. Really looking forward to more of this!

Just finished digging into the Ren'Py default themes to make a custom version of the TV theme for my game. I wanted pretty button backgrounds. It took me a while, but I did it! And customized the text boxes! And changed the game's resolution!

Using a free background for now for the main menu screen.



As you can see, there's still a lot of placeholder artwork.

Here's the (probably) final art for the romance-able characters! It's not perfect, but I don't really have the time to re-do it again.


I rated the Steam version negatively because when I opened it the window was too large to read the text on my Macbook Pro and I couldn't resize it. Could you fix this? I'll change the rating if I end up liking the game. I was really disappointed I couldn't play because this game sounds really interesting!

Some current screenshots! I apologize for my terrible art and the default UI! Also, I forgot to mention that there are disabled characters! Including an autistic character!







OMG! I once worked on a LARP where La Maupin was one of the characters I got to write. There were also space vampires though...
