No one probably knows the answer. The best you can do is wait for news from the team by following them on Twitter and follow the lead artist dmjh93 on Twitter and Twitch.
In the meantime, you can also check my guide in the guide section of the forum (Everything is here for each route up until before the "weekend with your friends" part of the demo) or just try other combinations of choices yourself and have fun.

See you :)

Honestly the fact that they keep making us wait six to twelve months between updates is frankly a little pathetic. I get that RL issues are a big hurdle but come on. Not even any progress reports? No sneak peaks? What's with the complete and total radio silence on progress? The twitter has been mostly inactive aside from some inane promotion for some random dude's Let's Play of the game and quite frankly I'm getting tired of it.

Is this all because of Let's Go Pikachu/Eevee? Are they staying quiet cause they don't want to be brought to the big N's attention? That doesn't excuse no news or communication [i]on this very website that they own.[I] Seriously, go look at the news on the home page. Last update was in freaking March. The lack of communication from the team and the complete deadzone that is this website has me tempted to just move on from this. I love the idea, and the characters are great, but this snail like pace will KILL all hype you mark my words.


I love this project and want it to succeed, but the people behind it seriously need to get it together or people are going to loose interest fast. I've already started too.

Maybe because they don't have enough crew to work with. After all, doing the scripting, programming drawing and rendering it takes really long time

Even if that were the case, it does not excuse the complete and total lack of communication, and no information is given one way or another.

Then move on from it? They don't owe us anything, they don't need an "excuse." They're doing it because they want to, they probably don't care who is "hyped" for it or who is following its development. If the game ever gets finished, people will rediscover it then.

We have no idea how much time they get to spend on this. Maybe they get to put in an hour a day, maybe they go weeks without having a chance to write one line of dialogue. If they tried to have weekly updates or screenshots or whatever people would just start pressuring them and whining even more often about the next demo. Though more frequent updates would be nice, it'll probably just be more burden for them. People like you who would insult them for not meeting your "standards" only risk harming the passion they have for the project.

Ironically, literally the next day after they posted a fairly big update on their twitter. Tierno is no longer a roommate option, and he and Trevor have left the main group. Instead, Ethan is a roommate option.

It's sheer luck I decided to take a peek at their twitter. What I do wish is that if and when they do post updates they would include this site, as I for one don't have Facebook and don't use Twitter.

Not only that they've apparently being doing polls that I've had no idea about. I guess they have every right to limit their news to whatever outlet they want but why even have this forum...

Edit: They've acvtually been posting quite a number of updates and I was none the wiser. Darn kids and their twitters.

Thank you for bringing this to my attention! I think that all of us were at least somewhat disappointed with the lack of updates here, though were respectful enough not to complain. This is a free game made by people with lives rather than an entire company on a deadline, after all.
