First of all I'm really sorry about the ridiculous delay. I keep running into financial problems, trying to solve them by accepting any contracts I can get my hands on, working part-time jobs, and whatnot, so you have to understand that the amount of time I can afford to waste on this game is very limited. On top of that, something--how do I put it subtly--extreme occured last month, and it seems I still can't quite handle the situation, since every time I sit down to work my head is only full of fuck. I had the demo ready like a week ago and I only had to upload it and write this post to release it, so you can imagine in what state of mind I'm currently in. I think I'm getting better now... Oh look, I'm writing this post!
As for the game--this is the last public demo I'll release, unless some new bugs pop up in need of fixing (patches count?). I'll be releasing teasers as I complete each stage, though. I had to cut out some features that only after actually completing them I had the chance to see and say they look like shit with this art style (image dialogs, I'm looking at you), and I had to cut out some things I really wanted to have in the game but time just won't let me (cutscenes--bye bye), since I absolutely have to release it before the end of august. Also, I'll hold off putting the demo up on dlsite until the whole game is ready, since I already started getting some major traffic from Asia, for some reason.
