    Synopsis and Gameplay Features

    “Without You” is a visual novel currently being created with VNMaker and expected to be finished during 2018.
    It tells the story of two old friends, Dani, an undecisive and anxious protagonist who seems to regret every thing he does, and Gabriela, a girl described as nice and ongoing, but unpredictable and moody too, who according to Dani, hides a lot about herself.
    After both of them wake up and reunite in a strange dimension which resembles their hometown, Silvershore, they realize they’re trapped in what seems to be the afterlife. Exploring an unreal and distorted world full of memories, and without anyone to help them in this unexpected situation, they’ll try to find the answers to every one of the questions appearing in their strange journey.
    How did they end up in this place? What happened to them in the real world? Is there any way to go back to their normal lives? Is there anything beyond this strange, disturbing place?
    Gameplay Features:
    “Without You”, being a visual novel, will have a big focus on dialogue, character development and, most importantly, choices, instead of battles or experience as in most RPGs. Multiple endings (both good and bad) will be available according to the choices you make in the several short chapters of the game, and every ending will unlock a CG available in the game’s gallery in the main menu as a reward to the player.
    Similar to “point-and-click” games, you will be able to explore and investigate the surroundings in search for clues, to initiate conversations and realize different actions. You’ll be able to save your progress (and load a savefile) at almost every point during the game in case you regret any choice made, and use the “skip” option to fast-forward dialogue and some scenes too.
    Will you be able to give a second opportunity to Dani and Gabriela? Or maybe, it’ll be too late for them, and their lives in the real world are already over?
    The full version of the game will have an estimated length of 2 hours. It’ll be available both in english and spanish.

    Download Link (Short Demo for Windows):
    Click on this link to download the DEMO.
    It should download the most recent version as I may update it if I find any bug, etc.
    https://rpgmaker.net/games/10341/downloads/10018/
    To take in consideration before downloading:
    • The DEMO version lasts between 10-15 minutes, no more than that. It is very short, just so I can be sure the game is working properly.
    • It contains a shortened version of the game's prologue and chapter I.
    • The "Gallery" option in the main screen is not available (as CGs/endings will only be available in the full version).
    • You can choose English or Spanish as the game language at the start of the game.
    • *Other Things*
    • As for now, savefiles with a different language than the one you chose at the start of the game won't load. I'll try to find the cause of this soon.
    • The game should use "Rubik-Regular" as the default font for the messages, but encryption seems to be messing it up sometimes. If it doesn't load, the game will use Times New Roman instead.
    • Also, I apologize for the size of the demo. I removed every unused asset/music/effects, but it seems that having 1280x720 as the resolution really has an impact.
    Update Log:

    Yes! More visual novel maker games!
    The city background looks really cool, its my favorite of the screenshots. The red windows and almost neon outlines just looks so interesting to me.

    Of course! I just didn't had too much spare time last month, but i've made some progress on the game anyway.

    Here are some new screenshots, added to the main thread too!
    You'll have to guess their relevance in the plot until I release the full game or another version, who knows.

    Quick update! A short trailer for the game is now available.

    I won't be posting screenshots this time (I just don't want to spoil the entire thing haha), so that's all for now.
    Hope you like it ^^.

    I hope I'm not being annoying but on the steam community I've also heard of people talking about Libe2D, map systems, battle systems, branching story paths, minigames, point'n'click, intimacy system and custom UI

    yeah those are good examples ! although complex to make >_> i use the custom ui, branching paths and point'n'click and already find them a bit confusing to use at first, it's just a matter of time to get used to them :rolleyes:
