I just hope this isn't one of these japanese "click text away until you fall asleep" adventures?

More like in the traditional Japanese Visual Novel, think of games such as Steins;Gate, Chaos;Head, Clannad, Phenomeno etc.

I have a composer now but I'm currently awaiting feedback from a potential sprite artist and voice actress.
Also looking for at least one programmer who could work for free, and has experience with angelscript which is similar to C++.

I’m learning some programming at school. If you post what kind of programs you want I can see what I can do for this project.

Awesome! The UI is a bit too... badly looking.
The gradients and fonts just don't fit with the game!

Well, it is a WIP. That font is not what I plan to use.
Any suggestion of the gradient?

P.S
Don't be afraid to say something looks awful. :P

I'd just suggest not using a gradient. :P
Make it work like back in 1999 where there were really little gradients in the world.

Just something to consider.

The first-person narrative is at odds with Ryo's somewhat uncommunicative demeanor. He probably expresses more in those two screens of exposition shown in the video than he does in two thirds of the original game. It changes how we think of him. He suddenly comes across as an articulate storyteller rather than the awkward and restrained Ryo that we're familiar with. While it might be intended to come from his older self, it's hard to portray that Wonder Years-style distinction when the narration is text-based.

Of course it's up to you, you can do what you want. I just thought I'd bring it up. But if I had to suggest an alternative, my first thought would be narrating the tale from the perspective of a different character reflecting on Ryo's now legendary adventure - perhaps an older Fangmei.
