Little sad about no more web version, but super glad that development is back in action!

Is this game still in development or has it been discontinued??????

(+3)

yes it is! college is just a lot so it's tough, but i hope to post more updates this year. thanks for your patience!

So... rather than having form shifting, instead there is a natural glamor?  Really helps to bring out all the harsh themes... but I also wonder if therefore what he did can be undone? Even if over a real long time? (as in eventually but not within game span)... Then again I guess the idea is having to live with stupid decisions one may make... if only it was easier for us all  to communicate and understand each other...

How´s the game going?

I love this! I look forward to any additional news regarding this project and it definitely has potential!

(+4)

I love this a lot!! It definitely has a loads of potential, I look forward to seeing how this turns out by the release. Keep up the good work

(+1)

do you have plans to translate this game into more languages?

(+2)

Unfortunately, because of how overworked I am, I'm not prioritizing translations. However, once I end up publishing a final draft, I'm very interested in translating Demonside into Spanish, French, and Japanese. Don't count on it happening anytime soon, sorry!

Finally got to play this. I loved it. It really hit on some of my childhood (and some more recent) experiences in a way that other things haven't before. The writing, your art, Brandon's music all made me so enthralled by it. I can't wait to play whatever you make next Ryoma.

Felt like the depression I've always known, although maybe not as gruesome. I'm a little confused about if the tail/ears are a metaphor for the depression (others can't or refuse to see it, but it's so obvious) or if Bea's tail really exists and others literally, like physically, just can't see it, but the tone and writing style is spot-on. God bless the USA for its terrible healthcare system and bureaucratic extortion. /sarcasm

Thanks for the feedback! I hope to have that answered with the official release. Stay tuned :D

(+3)

(+3)

Really awesome art style. 

(+3)

Very interesting start to what could be a great story, looking forward to the full release :)

(+3)

I really love the rad music!!!Super cute drawing style too. Cant wait for next update :))!

I had such a pleasantly miserable feeling throughout reading this. I'll definitely keep an eye out for the finished version!

Really love the art style as well.
