Hello All,

I am currently developing a Dating Sim game in my spare time (when not working on Quantum Flux) and have now put a working prototype up.

A link to which can be found on my kickstarter campaigns latest update:

But here are some images from the prototype:



Artists are working on better images to replace some of the placeholder ones currently in the prototype.

Looking good, I so want to create a space sim, dating sim game. I am soooo jelous :D

It's wierd. I can never play these, but I love these games. Maybe because it's not like the 99% other games that are based around killing?

good luck :)

Thanks, glad you like.

The kickstarter campaign is doing well, the games initial design is now funded and we are at about 300% so will be good to work on this after my first game is completed.

The artwork is phenomenal although dating sims are not my type of game, you did a pretty good job creating a similar experience.

Do you plan on adding emotions for your characters? It would be a nice touch. Maybe your generic four expressions, like mad,sad,angry, or happy could help express the emotions of the characters a tad bit better. Although I would imagine that it would take awhile to create expressions for each character.

But anyways nice job, and congrats on kickstarter

Hi,

A bit of an update, development of the game has continued in the last few months, we used up the initial funds we raised from the graphic novel and are now running a dedicated kickstarter for the game. Which has already reached its primary target and is doing well...

We are now half way to the first stretch goal, this visual novel game will also include some form of battle system, we are testing a street fighter style approach or even a card game of some kind.AJTilley2013-09-14 22:52:58
