You ask, why oh why am I releasing another version of this game?
Well, when I released version one, I was already a couple of weeks past my deadline. More importantly, I had no idea if anybody was going to be even remotely interested, aside from half a dozen people. It's not like the yaoi games I've seen...and it's already a genre that's very niche.
So I released it, without giving it the full polish. And it's gotten a few hundred downloads...and this is even before I've even started publicizing it on any major forums aside from the RenPy database and lemmasoft.
Things I've wanted to add:
- more fleshed out endings
- artwork (the CGs)
- updated interface
- a tutorial for players new to Visual Novels
- a new Alex
- typos (sorry)
...and a whole lot more...
In the next few weeks I'll be working my butt off to make these changes, to release Coming Out On Top (Redux) in late August 2012.
Here's Ian from an upcoming CG...
