A downloadable game

Hey this is my first game :b, I've always loved romance horror games so I played around with renpy a little to make this.  If I continue this I'll make the story more understandable and stuff, but for now I just wanted to mess around with coding :)

Real relationships are hard, why not switch to a fake one?  Your virtual boyfriend Nial  is cute,  sweet, and the perfect distraction that keeps you occupied for hours. But as more of your time gets taken up by the real world, and real people, Nial gets a little jealous...            

I own none of the music, so here's the links! (all of these were free to use): 

Opening thememusic for when Nial's on screenMeet Liam , Nial gets mad (only in one of the branching paths ,Liam date theme,  and all sounds are from bensound 

TW this game will include the following (in the full release: Body horror, murder,  gore, dismemberment, slight trypophobia, and very bad grammar and spelling

Here is my playthrough of your game! It was SO much fun and I kinda loved Nial roasting the player so much! Excellent job, I hope you enjoy the video!
(+4)

I had a lot of fun playing this (as someone who has amassed many fictional crushes) and this was quite the adventure! The art is beautiful, first of all, and I love how the scariness isn't outright gore fest but classy and in a way. I will have a playthrough of it up soon, I hope you enjoy it!

(+2)

Thank you so much for playing my game (;´༎ຶД༎ຶ`) I’m a big fan of your channel <33

(+2)

I loved it! The concept is cool and it creeped me out more than i expected lol 

It's a very good game and it's understandable so don't worry that much <3 Thank you for your hard work!

omg this is so great! I hope you make a full version!

i loved the game!!
i wish there would be a full version in the furure!

I don't know why I always download these games at night but I somehow find myself doing so, now I'm scared and had to just save it for tomorrow, haha well if it isn't the consequences of my actions! So far it's very interesting and I had tried out the different choices to a certain extent.

This was way creepier than I thought it would be, haha. Good luck on whatever you do next!

(+2)

I hope you continue this, it was really good! <3

(+3)

(+1)

(+1)

UGHHH i cant believe this is only the demooo i love this so much :<

(+1)

Quick question. Is the player only able play as a girl in this game? Is the MC gender-neutral? or can the player choose there gender?

(+1)

This game uses gender neutral pronouns for the player :)

(+4)

AAAA I LOVE ALL OF YOUR PROJECTS!! all of the storylines is really amazing~ especially this one i really like Niel's design and really curious about the story behind him. i also made some quick sketches of him in the cafe, i hope you will continue the project in the future but do please take care of yourself and remember to rest  ^^

I love the creepiness, the conflict, all is amazing! I hope you decide to continue this game :)

(+2)

Yes.

(P.s: I'm working on my own visual novel and it was inspired by this but not the exact same thing just some of the things are similar!"

(+3)

I really enjoyed this demo and would definitely recommend checking it out. Genuinely disturbing at times. Great story, beautiful art. I'm really looking forward to the full release. Thank you to the creator for an entertaining time 😊

(+1)

Omg thank you for playing my game! This version is extremely unfinished so sorry for any errors 🥲 

Please don't be so hard on yourself, you have done an amazing job and should be proud of yourself ☺️

IKLOOOOOVEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

(+1)

NOT the cliffhanger TT I can't wait for more. I hope everyone was able to put two and two together near the end. I really enjoyed it overall. 

(+4)

i really enjoyed this demo!! won't get too spoiler-y but parts of it genuinely creeped me out ;-; .. i saw you said you had dyslexia and that's the reason for the spelling mistakes, but don't worry, i could still understand what you meant while reading!! plus, you could easily get a friend or someone online to volunteer to spell-check for you for free!! anyways, i really look forward to seeing more of this game but i sincerely hope it isn't the cliched "turns out it was all the MC's mental illness" trope xD .. 

(+4)

It's really hard to write with my dyslexia and sometimes the comments make me think it's unreadable so I'm glad it's somewhat understandable :b. The volunteer proof reader is a good idea, but I'd feel really bad if since I can't pay them :,). And thank you so much for enjoying my game! More creepy bits to come! (Also I have a strong dislike to the 'it was all because of the MC's mental illness trope' so don't worry ;b)

(+2)

it's reassuring to hear that someone else dislikes that trope xD and don't worry, the text was fully readable and understandable to me, and didn't hinder my enjoyment at all!! i really enjoyed this demo :D!! plus, lots of people really wouldn't mind volunteering, but if you really feel guilty then maybe you can offer beta testing so they're technically getting something out of it (except it's early access to content instead of payment)?? just an idea!!

(+3)

That's a really good idea! I'm not sure who would be willing to be a beta tester, but I'll ask around! Thank you

(+1)

the game is really fun and good so far, but since the text is in similar colors to its' background its kinda hard to read, other thank that and spelling errors its a good game!

Thank you! I'll change the colors so it's easier to read :)

(+2)

this is really good so far!  i really like the artwork, its super cute!  i do hope that in later versions the ui might be updated though, the font is super small for the buttons on the bottom of the text boxes, and speaking of them, the text boxes also look a little lacking in my opinion.  there are also a good amount of spelling errors that need to be fixed, and maybe having volunteer proofreaders or beta testers could help with that.  i do like whats here so far though like i said!  nial is really cute and i would love to see more of him! <3

Thank you so much for the feedback! Unfortunately I have no money to pay proof readers or beta testers ;-;. I've tried to learn a little more about gui, and stuff, so hopefully it's up to standard when I update it lol :,)

(+1)

hey if you want could do it for free

(+1)

sorry for the late response!  but, as someone else offered, there are probably people willing to do proofreading or beta testing for you for free, if you set up a discord server for your game development there would probably be people willing to do so in there!  but i also understand if you dont want to have people do that sort of work for free, as it is still legitimate work.

(+2)

This is amazing!! I love this demo so much! Nial is such an interesting character and I'm very curious to see how the story progresses!!

(+1)

thank you (;´༎ຶv༎ຶ`)

(+2)

OMG the demo is amazing i really wish that there's more TvT. But i can wait it doesn't matter how long TvT. But yeah Nial is scary but he is so cute ackkkk---

Thank you so much (TuT), there's going to be an update soon. Thank you again for your support! <3

(+2)

OMG I'll be waiting on your update once again I love it very much ♥️♥️

this demo was amazing! I would love to see more of it so I'll just wait 'till it gets released :3333

thank you! <3

(+1)

This demo blew me out of the water. It was way more creepy than I was expecting, and I love it even more for it, can't wait to see how it moves forward!

thank you! I was trying to make it sort of unsettling so it’s awesome to hear that someone found it creepy :) 

(2 edits)

really hoping the spelling and punctuation are improved in the full release; youre really selling yourself short with this demo and itd be a shame for such a fun concept to be dragged down by having it be difficult and unpleasant to read.

also maybe dont use slurs? even if you horribly misspell it, sp*z is still not okay to say in any form

(+1)

I’m so sorry about that, I honestly thought that word meant twitching I’ll take it out immediately thank you for telling me, and sorry about the spelling my dyslexia makes it harder for me to spell check myself. 

(+1)

Um I checked back at my script, I spelled it wrong, but I don’t think I wrote the word your thinking of. But I did spell horrendously wrong though 

(+1)

i got too freaked out when that face popped up that i couldnt continue, haha. still a great game tho!

lol thank you! <3

(+1)
I wonder if you use a personal social media site to update about this game,because I will love to post fanart or something like that so more people know about this game with hashtag for easy searching 
(+1)

I use Twitter (@JJDuck7), thank you for taking an interest in my game! :b

(+2)

i can't wait for more the endings i got were so addicting and i love it so much i can't wait for the full game/demo but no rush take your time :)

(+1)

Thank you! I'm really glad you like it! <3

(+1)

loved it! cant wait for more

<3 thank you
