The game is already pretty easy! I can get the requisites for the good ending well before the end even playing in normal mode :mrgreen:
I think tomorrow will release the 1.0, all the latest bugs were really minor stuff. Previous games were released with far more "bugs" (typos mostly). Then Friday will start spreading the word and do the mobile ports.

It is fairly easy to get all the points/stats you need on the easy level, and this also means participating in all the events as well.

Unless there is something else going on,you are right about the release date. I will have to say the amount of bugs/typos/etc. people found was amazing. Heh, I know it might have been daunting to see the list of fixes each morning, but even with the latest build, it feels really solid to me.

Yes I think some people who can't win maybe they try to play all scenes, but you can skip many (I still managed to win in normal mode even not skipping a single scene though).
And yes, of course there might still be some hidden typo or anything, but the important is that all the endings works and the game can be played. I have still people finding typos in Loren after 2 years that is out, so that doesn't worry me, is normal when you write 100,000 words or more :lol:

New thing I added last night:

> WK 5, Tue : Now gives+10 Grades
> Wk 10, Mon: Now gives+10 Grades for the correct choice
> Wk 18, Fri: Now gives+10 Grades for the correct choice(s)
> Wk 20, Mon: Now gives +10 Energy

Just adding a reason not to necessarily skip those scenes. And giving some leeway in other aspects.

Jack, can I update from the game itself?

When I try to download version 9 or higher, my Norton antivirus doesn't allow it. I've never had an issue downloading WW games before!

From version 9 I used a new Ren'py version so might be that. Poorly written antivirus like that one, automatically flag new code as virus, preventing people from running them. Then after some weeks they work, like if they discovered that DOH there aren't virus in my games! :lol:
I honestly think all you need as antivirus is the built-in Microsoft Security Essentials (available in W7). Everything else just slows down your computer and provides no real advantages (and many problems running games, since even other indies have issues beside me), assuming you just do a normal use of your computer and don't go surfing dubious sites :wink:
Ah also, a great site to check is this one: https://www.virustotal.com/

I'm uploading version 1.0.0 right now which will be live on site with proper installers for Win. Spotted a last minute bug while playing the waterboy job and fixed it too in the upcoming version :)
