Hello! I realized I haven't checked in for a while, so here I am!! (You may not remember me; I've posted only a couple of times in a few topics.) Anyway, there IS a reason, haha... – I'm honestly, ha... a few MONTHS behind in schoolwork, but I'll keep trying my best. Just did the SAT a couple of weeks ago, so I am making some progress at least... even if I probably didn't do so well, heh. ANYWAY, I've been looking into creating a visual novel of my own – short but with a good amount of choices – and oh man. I have even more appreciation for the writing and length of this game, all while having so many options – and a management and stat-raising aspect as well! And without pay, to boot! Basically, what I'm trying to say is, christ all mighty, you are amazing. Take your time with updates; even though we want more, it's better to have quality content that takes some extra time, than to have rushed and incomplete content that takes way less time.

Thanks so much for keeping the game free, but I'd be happy to pay in order to offer support if you decided to charge for it. (I can't give much now, but I'm going to go donate after I post this.) I just read that there's only one person left on the dev team – Aleema. So, thank you for continuing development, Aleema! It must be hard to be the only one left, so I'm very sorry. :( But I know everyone appreciates you continuing to work on the game. I bet it's at least a bit discouraging since you're not really being recognized specifically by us fans – I know it would be for me. My offer from awhile ago to help out with anything I can still stands. I'm an artist, so let me know if you'd like me to help with art, and/or give some recommendations for good artists that have reasonable commission prices. Good luck and thank you for sticking with the development! I know it must be hard, but don't give up!

Thank you very much for the inspiring words, and the giving even though you can't afford it. I am also poor, so I understand completely. I really love this game, but it's hard to go back to it sometimes amid life problems.

I was able to really work on Claudette and Bruno a while ago. Claudette is almost ready for release, while Bruno needs some scenes written. I was able to advance with Seth and I'm liking where his path is going, but so far I only have the beginning half really nailed down. There's a clear break in his character arc, the first half has him getting worse before he gets better sort of deal. So I suppose seeing the ugly side of Seth is hard to write, but I guess the "recovery" version of him won't be any easier because he's so opposed to it.

Good luck with your own venture into VNs! They're so rewarding. I felt I always wanted to write stories, but also express them through sound and images, and VNs are perfect for that.
