I've typed in half of chapter 1 into CloudNovel, here is the story map/tree branch of the story so far, as you can see it covers Ron's and Valen's introductions. I will work on Antoine's introduction and finish chapter 1 tomorrow. 

In total I counted 309 pages of cafe rouge, and today I finished 7 pages. So it'll take me 44 days to put in all the writing into CloudNovel with my writing revisions. That's okay, the artist says that they can't finish all the art without at least 7 months time, so we have to wait till fall or winter 2019 for Cafe Rouge to be released anyway. Aaaaaah this project is going to take a long time to finish T_T

That's all I have for this update!

Just a recap, this is the final scenes map of the finished game:



Can you believe this took 1.5 years to make this game? Wow, we came so far....

People wonder why I'm so fascinated by American Southern romance and culture, well it's probably the only real time that America has an Aristocracy in USA. Of course, it was morally wrong how these rich cotton plantation owners became wealthy (because they earned their money from slave labor off African Americans) but it is a time in history of USA where we had a short period of an American Aristocracy and a "noble" class like European aristocracies.

Just the culture of having southern ladies (southern belles) and southern gentlemen has a romantic feel to it, even though reality is they profited off slave labor.

Guys, it's official, the set release date for the entire game will be July 1st, 2020. That's right, in less than 2 months, and you will all be able to play Cafe Rouge. We hope you enjoy it <3
Nice to see a project almost finished, tell you the truth I haven't been around long (I mean it, I only started about two days ago) but I have heard of Cafe Rouge a few times since a while ago when I tried looking for inspiration for Renpy games... who would have thought it has a bigger thing behind it all. (Meaning this site)

Anyways, thanks for making the site and also for being someone we could follow and see first hand, how if we work hard enough we too can finish those ideas we keep stopping on because of laziness, troubles at work, or any other reason.

Hopefully, with its release, people can start coming to do bigger projects with your engine with your game as an example.

@Shillin Thanks for the kind compliments, we hope to inspire other people to finish their games with our originally produced game production! We sincerely hope you enjoy it once we release the full game to the public :)
