This is our very first (I hesitate to even call it an "Alpha") prototype of Absolutely Haunting, which reaches until -almost- the end of the Introduction chapter. I've really just wanted to play around with the HTML5 exporting, and the only way to learn is to do.
Criticisms and advice are welcome, but please bear in mind that this is really a "proof of concept" over anything else. Heck, it's an 'eroge' without any H-content yet! (Hopefully) I'll have a new version with BGM, Sound Effects, eCGs, and Choices before the End of April!

On their way!! And the finished product will have quite a few. We are looking at around 20!
Looks super cool, really looking forward to the rest! Also, I like how the character;s name is gender neutral...does that mean that we might get to choose-?
This is a bit embarrassing, but I hadn't decided on the main character/protagonist's name at the time of this demo (still haven't found one I'm totally happy with), so I called them MC as an abbreviation of Main Character. ^_^" While we originally planned for the 'MC' to be male, I think choosing would be an option that would be cool to explore! Aside from some interesting modifications to future CGs, I don't think it would be too difficult to accomplish, especially if its what the fans want!
How do you feel about naming the player yourself? Does that break the immersion of the story, or add another layer of it?
Oh man, choosing the gender would absolutely sell it for me; the name thing could go either way, to be honest..I kinda like to be able to name my character, but it's not a deal breaker and it's obviously more immersive not to if you have voice-overs. Thanks for taking the gender thing into consideration, it means a lot: it totally kills the immersion for me when there's a game with an awesome story that assumes I'm a dude. And honestly, considering it's a dating sim, the kinda girls you attract will proooobably be into girls, so you don't need to do much in the way of changing love interests. Thanks again for the response, it means a lot!!
I've enjoyed what has been made so far! I can't wait for more!
