    Well do to my time freeing up I'm back to working on the Cerebella route and will try to get a new demo out ASAP and we have writers like ColdRedBlue writing some routes once they are done I'll try to program them.

    That's harder to say all I can tell you is that the routes are being written.

    Wow, what a great ending. I especially liked that cheeky nod you gave to a certain someone.

    Err, hi!
    I don't write very often on this forum, but I must say something: I like this. I like Skulldate(s?).

    I loved the routes, especially Squigly's (talking about that, how many endings are in it?), I love this project and I want to help.
    For first, I found a couple of bugs on Squigly's Route!

    - During the storm, when Squigly's body starts trembling and all, sometimes it "flashes" on the left side of the screen for an instant. It happens very often, so it's pretty annoying.
    - During fights, enemies' splash arts gets stuck when you won.
    - Someone needs to "clean up" all the Squigly splash arts from those annoying white dots around her edge.

    I love this project. Keep going!

    The Annie Route has Re-opened due to the original writer being to busy and is unable to finish it. If you want to write for the Annie Route please PM me.

    Hi, and thanks for the support! To answer your question, it has four endings: one bad, 2 neutral, and one good or "perfect" end. As for the bugs you brought up:
    • The first two are just issues with the Ren'Py engine; there's no way I know of to fix them without major alterations being made to other parts in the game (especially the battle sprite issue), so I just left those as is as they seemed relatively minor.
    • Those dots are what are referred to as "artifacts", and I don't own or know how to use a program suitable to remove them. They don't really bother me, but if you or anyone else want to attempt to remove them, please go right ahead!
    Again, thanks for playing and enjoying the Squigly route!

    Also, I'd like to thank @BallotBoxer for being the visual inspiration behind Squigly's appearance in the perfect end with this post. You can see art of the final scene here, done by @Crazyzooka (spoilers!)

    Uh, I see.
    By the way, I found another couple of bugs!

    - At the beggining, during the conversation with Adam, the background is "not placed", there's a purple screen instead.
    - Before meeting Squigly, if you go to the cafè and choose the option "Order Something", this will make a script error.
    - Before meeting Squigly, if you go to your apartment and choose the option "Go To Bed", the script will restart in a loop.
    I love digging inside the game :3

    Hi sorry I haven't posted an update in a while but I feel like I should give you guys the news on whats happening. I am not happy with ow the current Cerebella route was written however since I have more experience now I have decided to re-write it so most likely the next update will be a new build of the Cerebella route.

    The latter two are because those are parts of routes not related to Squigly's. Or at least the cafe one is.

    Sounds like an interesting concept. If you need any more writers, I dabble in narrative, but I don't have any experience with interactive stories like this one. I actually write a bit of fanfic but I'm quite self-conscious about my ability, I honestly can't place my skills as a writer. Getting better all the time, though!

    Gonna try out the Bella route Magma has posted. I'll see if I can't provide you with some feedback.

    Playthrough 1

    Clicked "view poster" and went to the circus. After being prompted with whether or not I'd seen Bella's show before, I clicked "no" and got a runtime error.

    Hmm I don't know what the problem is. What you are playing is an old build in guessing I'm actually almost finished with the newest build so expect that soon..sorry.

    In honor of Robo-Fortune's story being released, here is my prediction of how her path in Skulldate will go down.

    I would be happy to help, but im not 100% if I would be able to do much. I fell off Skullgirls and haven't been using Renpy for like almost 4 months because of school. Since I graduated I have a lot of free time.

    I recommend thinking long about writing a route. It requires a lot of time and commitment you won't have to program but you'll need a decent story.

    Yea, that's whats killing me. I wouldn't be able to make a decent story I don't know much about the Skullgirls lore like I use too.

    Im glad I contributed to the first half of the development with cool ideas :PUN:.

    I just started on the Squiggly route, and noticed that some of her portraits aren't cleanly rendered. Would you be willing to let me tidy up the portraits that need white outlines erased?

    I would but the problem is I don't have the files to edit. Lockjaw does but he's banned. If you want to tidy up any other sprites for the Cerebella route or any future routes your more then welcome.

    Still working on the images. A friend who I told about this encountered an error.

    It occurred when trying to order something to eat at the diner. Prior to that, he had picked every option except for going to the graveyard. It sounds like Lockjaw is the one I should be telling this to, but...

    The worst part is I cannot do anything because the files are locked away and the only one who has access is Lockjaw. And he's banned. I have no other way of contacting him.
