STORY

All stories are written by Noëlle Hyzy, the winner of Voltage Inc.'s 4th Annual International Script Writing Contest for Romance Apps.

A Very Important Date is a café romance set in a strange, yet familiar world, with loose ties to Lewis Carroll's Alice stories. But this isn’t the typical Alice in Wonderland styled adventure! While A Very Important Date takes a few notes from the Carroll classics, you don't have to be a big fan of them to enjoy this game for its rich dialogue, witty humor, and unique art style!

Our story follows Alison Sunderlund, an average small town Ohio girl. By day she can be found working as a server in a local café and by night she takes care of her house and family: her dad and younger brother. Though she doesn't have a lot on her plate, the life she has gives her very little free time. But Alison's life changes one morning when she wakes up sitting under a tree in a brand new world.

Confused, Alison sets out to discover more about her new surroundings, accidentally stumbling upon the Arkwright estate, home of Gwyn Arkwright and The Looking Glass Café. With no place to go and a way back home seeming impossible, Gwyn, being the kind soul that he is, gives Alison a job and a place to stay for the time being. Everything's peachy except... now Alison must choose which of The Looking Glass' five employees will train her!

Will Alison stick with what she knows and remain a server? Will she a cut a new path as a cook's assistant? Will she wipe away her past burdens as a low-level dishwasher? Will Alison ever figure out what strange world she's in? Will she ever return to her old life?

Will she want to?

@CosmicLatte, we're not Greenlit yet, but working on it ^_^ Thank you for the comment.

Also, I agree with you. Though I do understand the VNs or certain genres aren't everyone's cup of tea (I personally don't like FPS's), but I wouldn't go out of my way to hate on them, especially not without trying them first. But thus is the risk one has to take when putting art/a story/a product out in the wild. Hateful comments, destructive remarks, and salt come with the territory. Constructive critiques are always welcomed though!

@Star Dust Legacy, I wish we had more done with the writing actually, but school kept getting in the way. Our sprite and illustration artist works for the military, so her schedule for us is all sorts of wacky. We appreciate her working with us and can't wait to see the rest of the art she'll provide for us. Thank you for the nice comment ^_^ and thank you for being a long time fan!

I am so impressed how much two and half years can do, this looks amazing and I look forward to a chance to play it, have been waiting excitedly since I first heard about the idea way back when.

Don't you love when people comment on something they know nothing about? vv

Anyway, congrats on getting greenlit! Looks interesting :)
