One weird path written in, it came out fairly short. She should get a bit more in her other path.

Rowan's path basically done now - need to finish some additions for Date Warp before writing Vonne though.

Rough end of Vonne's path written (some extra bits for the epilogues/etc still to write but those are quick)

There is a working tutorial.

Major game areas not yet finished: the savegame system is only half-complete at the moment, the beginning-of-week calendar hints haven't been done, Vonne's path hasn't been imported yet, epilogue system hasn't been written, one plot-critical case needs to have some options rewritten, some extra game balance elements need to be added, options screen and ability to change difficulty hasn't been touched yet, probably more things I haven't thought of at this exact second.

Also, I need to hire another artist for the CGs.

Too many CGs? :P

Waiting for it! I'd try and apply for the position, but I'm not sure I'm meeting the bar.

No, it's more the usual problem of artists flaking out and disappearing. People get busy with other things, especially when a game's got a long dev cycle.

Do you have an ad anywhere? Just to see the requirements and stuff, at the very least I'd like to use them for practice. :D

Save system should be complete, with some tweaks that make it friendlier than most RenPy games (cutting down on saving over games when you meant to load, for one thing), week-start calendars and hints are in, options and title screen are in, difficulty settings are adjustable although we didn't mention them in the tutorial so you kind of have to know they're there, epilogues are starting to appear. If I weren't going to a convention at the end of the week I'd say we were near alpha but because of that it'll probably be early December? Or maybe the end of November but we'll see.

At first, I wasn't really that hyped about this game - but man, I'm really hyped now lol. Perhaps I'm not really one for GxG games (straight female here yooo) but if it's made by Hanako, it's going to be amazingggg. Eeee, I'm really looking forward to this game. :D

(Also, happy late Thanksgiving for those who celebrate! If not, happy holidays to y'all.)
