What's up people,
Let's end 2016 on a high.
Today, i bring you another Shenmue Visual novel inspired by the festive season.
This is a short game that I created over the last week. I was originally going to release this on Christmas day, but was unable to due to some game breaking bugs. That and ive been working like a madman over the holidays, so i haven't had much time at all. Got there in the end though, so all its all good.
Keep in mind, this game is very lighthearted and fun and is not suppose to be taken seriously. Sit back, enjoy and have a good time.
You've been invited to a Christmas party in Dobuita by your old friend Fuku-san. Upon arriving, you agree to help with the party preparations. A mysterious figure watches you from the shadows. It's up to you and Santa to #saveshenmuechristmas
One major difference you'll notice between this and the last game is that YOU are the player. Once you arrive in Dobuita, the game will ask you to enter your name. From that point on, all NPCS and character will refer to you by your actual name.
Like all great games, there will be various choices to choose from when interacting with characters. Each one giving a different response. Choose wisely
--The game is played by simply clicking the mouse on the screen once a character finishes speaking
--Choose from the various choices to affect the game's direction.
-- Left click continues
-- Right click opens up the option menu
--- Play in fullscreen for desired effect
Do not skip transitions or click at a fast pace due to impatience. The game has a deliberate pace. At some points you may think the game is hanging or taking long to load. If this happens, an event is about to occur. Sit back and enjoy the ride.
Also play in full screen.

Due to a limited amount of time, i was unable to address all the bugs and glitches in the game. I'll fix them at a later date. You may run into the following issues.
Extra large menu choices - Sometimes, the menus appear stretched for some odd reason. If this happens to you, restart the game.
Sound lowers by itself - At certain points of the game, the sound will lower. I noticed this on my desktop but not my laptop. If this happens, raise the volume on your speaker.
Menus - Some menu buttons are not functioning as they should. Will be updated at a later date.
I've managed to find good consistent results with the game using the following settings. Other issues
I need to clean up some of the portraits, adjust the voice clips to sound more consistent and not super loud.
Also, apologies, i still need to proof read the game. Will do so soon.
I also left some save files in the game. Dont load them if you have not already finished the game
If you come across any other issues, please let me know
Here it is people. This is my Christmas present to all you. Wish I had more time to work on the project, but i'll be busy for the next month or so.
