Sequel, Greenlight, and other news
We finally have an artist signed on for the sequel! All the characters will be redone and you will be playing a male protagonist in Wolf Hall. It's too early for me to show anything here now, but for the hardcore there are more details available in the Hanako Secret forums on my website.

Also, we've finally put Long Live The Queen into a Greenlight listing. YOU WANT THIS GAME. TRUST ME. Please go and vote!

Huh. I already upvoted, followed, and favorited LLTQ, and I didn't even notice it was one of yours.

You would know why this cant happen if you bothered to pay attention -at all-.

Hanako Games COULD (if willing) continue this, but a majority of the players would moan about a completely diffrent art style because of issues with artists. So its either we get a DLC with new art style that doesnt match the orginal and people moan about it, or we dont get it continued and people moan about it. its a lose lose in general. I for one am happy to see a sequel coming about. I loved and enjoyed this game alot, and really loved the characters <3

Hanako this game is by far the best I own out of my entire steam library. This game is the only one that sparks emotion (Love, Hate, Laughing, Crying) I cannot wait for the sequel I can only hope its as great or even better than this one.

Trying to mix artists for this sort of thing goes very badly. People complain. 'Similar' is not good enough. And it's a good bit more than just facial features - any new romance options would need dance costumes at the very least.

I'm one of the people who wouldn't mind the mix of styles, but that's to bad that the writer lets this sort of problem stop them. It just means a lost customer, which in the long run won't hurt them to much.

Make that two lost customers

Those bit you're quoting were answering the question of why we couldn't make more people romanceable in the *current* game - sticking random characters into the same game with different art would look pretty silly.

The actual question about followup years has been answered as well, but it's a different answer.

For one thing, Damien left the school! He can't exactly feature heavily in a story set in sophomore year with your existing character, as he would not be there. Following him would require a completely different game, in a different setting, with no school and no dungeons and no spells to learn... which very few existing customers would actually be interested in playing, and which would tie me up and prevent me from writing games people did want to play. Remember, there's only one of me, and I can only do so much at a time.

For another, this game was _from the beginning_ designed to cover freshman year from different perspectives. Wolf Hall will give you far more information about Damien than a second-year followup could do, because you'll be seeing things about him that you could not see as a Horse Hall girl. Things that were designed from the beginning to be part of his story. There's important information about the characters we've already met that hasn't had a chance to come out, because it was supposed to come out in different Halls.

The story I designed is not yet complete. I cannot go on to any later years until the foundation of the story is set. The other Halls have to be in play so that people have the ability to bring in PCs from multiple halls into any later-years game.
Ok, that's a valid reason, so long as we'll eventually be able to continue the game with our characters (I seem to remember one ending long ago where my girl was moved to a different hall for her next year after the events of the first, and I'd REALLY like to continue that line) My fear Was, that you'd be putting out all these first years, but Never move on beyond that.

Sorry I appeared overly hostile, if I recall I was having a really bad day that day, I appoligize and thank you for the responce.

Random question! Will the main character in Wolf Hall be named Marty Stu?
Hanako  [developer] May 14, 2013 @ 11:14am 
While it's completely silly I actually do have a plan for this - WolfPC will default to Gary Stu rather than Marty Stu. That way if I do manage to get all the halls done, the whole set can rhyme. The girls will be Mary, Terri (Butterfly), and Carrie (Snake), and the boys will be Gary, Harry, and Barry.

There just aren't enough names that rhyme with Marty.

I'm just happy there will be more of this game.

I honestly think id like to see another demon like charracter who is not acually evil. I have always been a fan of this idea since neverwinter nights 2. Its always nice to see a demon whos acually a good person and is not trying to kill everything
Alexandra Moldovia May 18, 2013 @ 11:30am 
I support this idea...
