Fading Hearts: Third Option Delayed, Version 2 B Coming Out End of January
  • User interface will be improved with new layouts and window/button graphics
  • Monster graphics will changed to new ones
  • Battle special effects will be updated
  • Various text fixes

What else? A launch discount from $14.95 USD to $12.99 when "Version 2 B" releases. When "Third Option" comes out then it will be applied automatically to the existing Fading Hearts Version 2 B.

Also when "Third Option" comes out... I'm considering raising the price of the game as well.

Anyone who bought the game through digital download and I have access to the detail sales records where I can verify their email address gets a steam key as well. Just in case you're wondering.

Description
Dating sims are not my thing; I find them tedious and repetitive. [...] yet, I found this one engaging – if that’s not a testament to the entertainment value, I don’t know what is.

In terms of gameplay, the game takes 'choose your own adventure' to a whole other level. You literally have freedom to do whatever you want.

"It has an interesting story to tell, which can be as realistic, convoluted or outlandish as you want it to be."

Live a life of adventure or a normal life! A game with true choices!

An interactive story/game where you play the role of Ryou, a seemingly normal high school student in the land of Sorayama. Solve the mysteries that surround him while maintaining his friendships and saving Claire. Remain ignorant of the secrets and live a normal life or choose to learn the truth. Be careful where you put your priorities for it may prove fatal.
  • Multiple end-game climaxes and endings!
  • What will be the final conflict?
  • Take control of your story or be swept away by it unlike ever before!
  • True choices! (Defined as choosing your own goal!)
Daily Life Sim! Player-Led Game/Story Genre Shifting!

Everyday choose what YOU want to do. Fight monsters in the forest on Monday. Hang out with friends on Tuesday. The player gets to choose

Player-Active Storytelling! NPCs tries to manipulate you, the player! (As opposed to passive storytelling)

This is what makes gamers like this game when they don't like Visual Novels and/or Dating Sims. Normally what you get is a storyline that you can sit back and just passively absorb. In Fading Hearts...

players can actively manipulate story mechanics once they understand how they work.

Also there are many people trying to convince you to do things that may or may not be in your best interest. How do you figure out who to trust and not trust? Will you get enough information in time or would you have go with your gut feeling when it comes does down to the wire?

Revamped Game System and Updated UI

The videos and screenshots show what is currently released. When we get on steam we will be revamping the game system and UI to take advantage in the updated engine and take advantage of a few steamworks features like achievements!

This game's target rating would be "T for Teen"

*Yes "Counter Arts" has the rights to publish Fading Hearts.

If you plan on buying this game you should consider buying it from mangagamer.com. Steam doesn't really need more money than it already has but MG in turn is strugling to make ends meet with all their releases.

I don't speak for the developers, but I have checked their blog. The game is already out on Amazon, but they're updating it for the Steam release. Right now they estimate it will be out in mid-January, and the last update was on Dec. 4th, so I'm pretty certain it's not dead. Good thing too, since I plan to buy this when it comes out.
Great name, by the way. :)
