Can you not break someones' heart? the fact that there is message when you do make me think that there is a way to avoid this.
The message happens after a jealousy scene, I wrote it myself. I wanted to make clear to the player that character X won't be available for the rest of the game. However it can be changed as long as it's clear for the player what happens in term of gameplay :)

Rebecca sent me Nadia's swimsuit outfit! At this point I'll delay this update a little more to add it to the game together with the right young nun image and the Nick fixed texts for the plot hole above (Miakoda already sent them) :mrgreen:

While I'm finding it amusing that your end/start of week character sprite matches the last one seen, this might be a bit too weird.

Haha yes I need to reset the clothing after the scenes, especially if the scene is a nightmare like the one you posted! :lol:

Just downloaded the demo - well written, kudos to the writer! If only it would have game play : P But I think I'll pass this one, sorry. Not my type of genre.

Only one remark: I laughed out loud seeing the step dad the first time. It was described as "good natured smile". I'd call it "mad axe murderer grin". ymmv.

Yes this game in particular it's mostly about the story, since even as dating sim the "gameplay" part was greatly reduced. So for a fan of RPG like you I'm sure it doesn't have much appeal :lol:

And lol, I think Joshua (step-dad) grin is not so crazy looking after all :wink:

Ignoring twice will continue with the scene, choosing rollback twice has, for me, either dumped me back at the main menu or jumped to the Brandon x Nadia CG.

Rolling back (for me) puts me at the end of the Brandon x Nadia scene (with Kaitlyn in place of Brandon), but that may be unique to my brokenness.

Also, your weekend graphic for gifts says "available from week 5," but the text says week 3, and the gameplay also allows gifts from week 3.

Thanks for the detailed report as always, looks like the gallery screen needs some fixing! :mrgreen:
The main issue is that when clicking an ending in the gallery it's like if the code is started from scratch: so I need to manually set all the variables (gender, who you play with, etc) and my guess is that I forgot some variable.
And yes I forgot to update the gift texts since I changed that back to week3 from week5!
