--In Progress--
8/31 - Fall term of Jack's route is now available, though not fully tested yet -- I should have time to work on things this evening, so please let me know if you encounter issues!
8/20 - Part 1 of Jack's route released, bugs fixed. I've been writing this route for the fantasy land jam, though I probably won't be able to get the next part published for at least 2-3 weeks.

8/12 - Malcolm's route completed! Good end, secret epilogue, and multiple bad ends are included. Added the option to skip straight to character selection after the first route is completed.
Fixed some bugs, as well. Let me know if you run into issues.
Jack's route is currently being written - should have the first section or two up before the end of the month.

You have just learned that magic is real due to an offer of admission to the North American College of Magic.
Learn the dangers and advantages of three different magical traditions and work towards the one you choose as your major. Includes a full year's magical curriculum.
Get to know your classmates, including three datable characters to choose from.
Just remember: your tuition may be fully paid, but magic is never free...

A few tips:
-The questions in the common route all contribute to you making it into the route of your choosing or not. The conversation in which you tell Kathy your crush is just what prevents you from ending up in a different character's route.
-Not a pure otome game -- if you're just here for the romance this might not be for you. It includes a lot of world building, as well as a stats management element.
-After your first play-through you'll have the option to skip directly to character reselect, which will start you on Monday of your second week of school, where the routes branch.
-You don't have to focus on the same discipline as the character you choose, but you may get extra opportunities to train in their discipline. Just be sure you work on each skill enough to pass the exam at the end.
-You will bad end if you run out of any type of magic
-These stories are long, so be sure to save.
-Double click if you find the game gets stuck between scenes.

And a couple of disclaimers:
-Contains strong language.
-While there are theological questions raised within the story, they aren't intended to reflect specific religions of our world, though you can look at it that way if you want to.
-This is a non-commercial (free) game.
