Continuing Story Mode romances?

1) This is one of the best VNs I ever played. Everything about the game is AWESOMELY done, characters, script, star raising etc. But you already knew that ;)

2) I read somewhere that you wanted to add endings/continuations for Dallas, Emmitt and Beau in open mode. Or an option to break up with them. Obviously that's gonna take awhile  to write, seeing the quality of the game. 

BUT are you still planning to do that, if so when? :)

I have a problem with not giving up or even admitting defeat. I also always get the small cart when I go grocery shopping and then wish I got a bigger one, because I'm optimistic that I won't be a complete loser. But I always seem to let myself down.

I want to write these stories. They're complete in my head and just need to be written. And it's hard to reply to posts like these and hold myself accountable each time. I do want to finish and make you all happy. I do, please trust me on that. But I also got a stressful promotion at work recently and on the weekends I just veg out. The truth is, if I were as passionate about this game as when I first started, I would make time and I would do it. But I'm not and I'm very ashamed to admit that.

There are 4 things I want to finish writing before I would even consider launching the game out of beta and officially moving on. 3 of them are Dallas/Beau/Emmitt's open-mode stories. The last would be releasing Seth. Those are what I consider to be the "minimum" of my duty before I could admit I bit off more than I could chew. I want to believe that I can do it, and I definitely want to do MORE than just those 4 things.

For you, I will work on those 4 things today. Right now. I will make progress. I can do that for you at least.

Thank you for your kind words and I hope you get to read these finished stories some day.

Thank you for creating this game, it is honestly one of my favorite games and even the fact that you are still trying to make progress on it despite everything else going on in your life is really great. I really appreciate the progress updates now and again and I love that you appreciate your supporters just as much as they appreciate you, I wish you well and good luck on your work with the game :) 

I second what Courtney said. Honestly I've been following your progress on this VN since before the beta was released for free. I just fell in love with the demo and Robin and couldn't help coming back over the years  with fingers crossed to see if/how it was progressing. And I'm always so relieved to find you haven't given up on it and let it die. You've done such an amazing job fleshing out new characters that had never even been introduced when I first discovered the game. You've got such a dynamic and compelling gift for story telling here, and I've been waiting years to see its conclusion and I'll probably keep waiting till it finally happens just to sigh remorsefully when it ends. And I totally respect that even after all the ups and downs you still haven't given up on this - on us faithful readers. I know I'm not the only one stalking the forums hoping for a new little morsel of story to feast on at the first opportunity. As a writer as well, I completely get where you're coming from on having everything fleshed out in your head but finding it so hard to get it out and into written form. It takes a lot of motivation, willpower, and passion. Sometimes it feels like surgery, trying to forcibly but carefully extract the ideas from your mind without losing any lustre or detail somewhere in the middle of that process. What I'm trying to say in this long-winded post is that we've all had your back till now and we'll continue to into the future. We aren't giving up on you or this story anymore than we know you don't want to either. Even if it takes another few years it's okay. We'll wait. We'll keep cheering you on. You've got this! :)

Thank you so much for the kind words and support ... I really mean it. Thank you.

Claudette will be the next released character. I am testing her route now. She was written (mostly) by Starling, which is why she's ready before others.

I will, always, look forward for your further release. This is the game i always come back to since last year. I hope you are doing well, physically and mentally tho. So, just do it with your pace and take care of yourself. You already gain lots and lots of fans and supporter with this project.

Ditto to everyone else's sentiments regarding this game. It is hands down one of my favorite VNs - so unique. It's not much but I just wanted to add my two cents and hope that it gives you some satisfaction in return for all of the hard work you (and others) have put into this game. I check back every so often to see if there are updates, which I'll always welcome, but I also understand if you have to set this aside at some point and move on. A lot of love has gone into this game and it shows.

You guys are really the best anyone making a game could hope for. Thank you.

I'm happy to say I've made really good progress on Beau's continuation route yesterday. I'm introducing band tags  in the next update (is your band sexy or cute? vulgar or clean? etc.) so I want to put some final touches on that system before release, but I expect there should be new content released by next weekend. :)

That's great, thank you for keeping us updated and for all your hard work, I can't wait to see the new content :')
