Wow I am so excited! This looks adorable. :D I was wondering what you would work on next so I am very excited to hear about this! :D

So I have to ask for clarification, when you say that throughout the series, you can play as a boy or a girl, I assume that means some of the games will be pursues boy and other pursues girl? (I'd also be curious to see if you plan to put any bi/gay characters in the game, like you have with some others, but if you don't know yet or want to keep secrets I totally understand.)

Either way it sounds gorgeousness, I am so excited. I will most definitely be getting this once it's out. I really like the art style as well; Simple but still very pretty and distinctive.

Hello Mr Dragon boy/man! He reminds me of the show Gargoyles, in a great way. *pokes pretty hair*

I am just so happy to see another game! :D

I'm going to fall silent on answering too many questions at this stage.

If you want to know more about the game while it's in development, I'm experimenting with setting up a devblog here on indiedb. Be warned that this blog is aimed at a slightly different audience and may contain irreverent humor and maybe even spoilers! If you'd rather be surprised by everything, stay here... you'll still get the game when it's done. :)

Aah! As a new addict to these games, I'm very excited for this one. ^^ The stress bar worries me a bit though. Is it going to be like the ones from Tokimeki Memorial, or will it be a bit easier to handle? Haha, either way though, I can't wait!

By the way, I don't mean to push, but is there a rough estimated release date for this game? I know great games take time, so I do not want to rush this at all, but I tend to like to plan ahead (e.g. if I get these two games now I'll finish in time for this etc).

No pressure, just curious. :D

Not the slightest of clues, it's way too early in development. I can safely say it won't be done before December simply because so little is complete so far, but I have no idea when it will be done.

When either the writing or the art is mostly done I'll have a better idea of how long the rest should take, generally.

Thank you so much! :D Best of luck on the project!

This game idea looks shiny and interesting. It would be fun to see characters from one game appear as cameos and minors in another. I wonder if that means each school 'hall' would be a different specialization to help make each segment unique (battle magic, charms, so forth) so the romances would be different.

To me it just seems that Hanako's games are getting more and more cliche
