THE STORY SO FAR...

It's the end of his sophomore year and Ezra has come to a conclusion: he must drop out of college by the end of the semester. As if an unfinished college degree isn't bad enough, having a few budding romances mixed in with his lingering existential crisis is the last kind of cocktail from hell Ezra needs in his life right now. As his days as a college student near to a close, he must come to terms with all of his resentments, fears, relationships, and most importantly—himself.

Created as an entry for Yaoijam 2016. 💖

GAME NOTES

This is pretty much an alternate universe featuring the cast of a another VN I've been working on called Dakota Wanderers. Due to being busy with other projects, my progress for that visual novel hasn't gotten far in the script. Since the project started in 2013, I've been worried about keeping the interest I have for these characters, so I figured Yaoi Jam would be the perfect opportunity to let loose and write my characters freely. Happy to say that working on this game for the past two months has been a total blast! I'm very excited to release this demo, and hopefully the full release won't be too far off.

This demo is roughly 16k words and may take anywhere between 30 minutes to an hour of gameplay. I looked over the script as much as I could, but there's always the possibility of having errors. Feel free to contact me via lemmasoft or twitter if you encounter any bugs or grammatical slip ups.

Also, any feedback on the demo would be much appreciated! The full release is still in the works, so any insight on how to improve the experience would be great. Thanks!
