I enjoyed the extra content with him. My favorite scene was probably having coffee with him at the mall he was so adorable. :D

Not sure if this would be spoilerish so I whited it out.
At the end during the dance is there anyway to offer to keep in touch writing letters? (Not sure if that would work though since he said he's going to the Otherworld to start training.) I felt sad that I "probably" wouldn't be able to see him again after we started being friends.

Yeah, I wasn't sure if I should put something like that in or not. I didn't want it to feel too much like the resolutions of some of the other paths.

I can see ways it might happen, but I think for the moment I'm leaning towards not giving any specifics as to whether or how you might communicate with him again.

ZOMG Big Steve!

I don't really have anything constructive to say, I'm just so excited to finally get my Sue to pursue that adorable, socially awkward, introvert. *happy dance*


Edited to Include: I'm having some problems with installing the new updates. I had to get a new computer so I had lost my old install and saves. When I try to update I'm told I need the 0.2.82.2 first (the game is at default 0.2.76) but I don't have that option. I can only go directly to 1.0.18.1 which doesn't include the needed earlier update.

That was really confusing wasn't it?

Trying to update from something WAY back in alpha is probably going to explode, yeah. You need a newer installer. :)

Contact me by PM or email with the name and email address you bought under (or the 'Order ID', but not the 'Product ID' because the product id just says what game it was, which doesn't help :) ) and I can find your order and press the button to get you a new download.

Oops - my fault. (I left the 0.x directory out when moving the updater onto the new patch server, because it was four and a half gigs and I thought everyone had updated to 1.x by then. But 0.2.82.2 itself is a manageable size, so it's up.)

You should now be able to download 0.2.82.2 when the updater prompts you to; once that's done, you'll need to update again to beta 1.0.30 to get the new Big Steve scenes. If it still doesn't work, Hanako can send you a new installer.

It's interesting that it could be read as meanness - I read it completely as socially awkward and so utterly at a loss what to do with this chatty thing that wants to be friends. :) I think maybe I read it like this though as I'm socially awkward and my reflex response would be to disappear too!

I might play again and read it through differently! It makes it more fun I think, that it can work on either level.

Given that I tend to be a socially awkward type in real life, I didn't see any of it as mean - he just has trouble interacting with people. That's what makes him an interesting character. Like how he doesn't really know what to do when Mary Sue gives him Mr. Hoppity, and how he seems to prefer Mr. Hoppity's company to anyone else's - it's because he's not comfortable in social situations, not because he's mean.

So I've done the Steve content twice so far. The first time I forgot what store was going under so I didn't save it and I think I scared him off by being too romantic. The second time I saved the pastry shop and went the funny route and oh, it broke my heart right into little pieces after I got the dance and Mr. Hoppity and the picture/yearbook entry.

Excellent job Hanako, I really loved that. I've enjoyed both variations so much. Exactly what I was hoping for in a small side romance with Big Steve. He's so adorably awkward and worth the effort of breaking through that defensive, panicky shell. :D

Big Steve is officially tied with Donald in my book. He'd have beaten him, if it was a full route romance, but I loved this little side romance so much. Definitely worth the wait.

Finally we get Big Steve's scenes. I think I'm doing something wrong because I didn't get a picture or yearbook entry QQ

Have you visited the pastry shop at least five times to keep it from closing down?

Just letting you know that when I went to show a friend how to update the game, going all the way to "check for updates", I pressed "return" and went to let her start a new game to try it and an error occurred.

I closed the game and had no problems, so the problem was only when I did that specific sequence.

Other than that, LOVING THIS.

Yay Big Steve! Just played it through but had NO idea about the bakery so I didn't get his full route :( shouldn't he tell you at some point or did I just miss it? I will try again another time to get the full ending since I just love Big Steve and Mr Hoppity so much! :D

You should be able to work around the bug by either running the updater as Administrator or by finding and deleting the file 'dlc.rpyc' before running the updater. Once you update to 1.0.30 (currently in alpha) you should be able to update normally to future versions.
Thanks. It worked for me!

Personally, I loved Big Steve's path. :)

It took me two play-throughs to get the dance pictures though because I didn't know about the bakery thing but I finally got it. Tip: Go to the food court at the mall and order a pastry at least five times before your coffee date with him. :wink:

I also really like how he had two different pictures (one where you're holding Mister Hoppity and another where Mister Hoppity is on Big Steve's shoulder). :)
