This is a really interesting concept which is so far well written. The intro had me hooked as did the whole scene with the quiet girl in class who I both relate to a lot and think is so cute. I didn't read that the protagonist was male at first but I read ahead anyway despite not being able to fully relate because of the writing and concept. Good Luck with the rest!

The new version has some accesibility options, such as alternative fonts, removing screen shake, and displaying notifications when sounds/music is playing.
We plan to release the new version within Q4 of 2023. This version includes the accessibility options listed above, as well as new art, character moments, a music player, and a gallery viewer for the in-game CGs!
The new version will be released here and on Steam!

Yes! We have a new version coming soon. We are in the process of doing our final QA pass to make sure everything is ready.
Dear Mr / Mrs,
I am a student in Translation from the University of Mons in Belgium. I recently discovered your game entitled Missing Stars, and I would like to use it for my thesis. Indeed, my thesis will consist on translating and localising a videogame from English to French, which is my mother tongue. Thus, I would like to ask you your permission to work on this game. I will use it only for an academic purpose, which means that I do not intend to commercialise it in any way.
I hope this message will find you well, and I hope to get your approval soon.
That sounds interesting! Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can discuss details.
Nearly 3 years since the last Dev Log. Is this still being worked on?
Hi! This game is still getting worked on! We're planning an update for Act One that will be released here and on Steam!
Ever since waiting for the part 2. One of the best visual novels I ever played.
I promise this didn't make me cry at one point... when's part 2
Wow, that was good. Can't wait for more, and I'd gladly pay money for it. Thanks so much!
A lot of effort on the creators part, but I got bored in the first 20 minutes. I had it on skip the whole time. Too much dialogue, too few choices.
This is fan-freaking-tastic.
I wish it was mobile supported.
This is really good game! Fun story and beautiful artwork.
But why there isn't Ela route?
The art looks so beautiful omg
This is a wonderful gift before the end of the year! So happy you finally get to show the first installment in full :)
If I may though, I'd ask you tagged the three releases with the relevant Operating Systems, so the game may be installed and managed through the Itch.io launcher.
so much content ...
and it's free ... wow
I've been following this for a while! Well done for release!
