A downloadable visual novel for Windows and macOS

----------------------------------------------------------------------

16-year-old Alex Sprouse has moved to the tiny Smalltown with several different neighbors of different personalities, but there might be more to these people than first impressions reveal. Will he be able to be a good friend, or perhaps more, to one of these new neighbors? In a world where actions can't be reversed, he better hope you get things right!

Berry Street is currently in development. Everything is subject to change. There are still placeholder assets in place, including backgrounds and music tracks.

i just finished demo.Well, it was good but...

Some of backgrounds could be replaced with something better. Especially the ones made of photos and pictures from found on the interenet. The rest of artstyle is cool! The cartoon-style CGs, sprites and backgrounds are very nice :) 
And a good music :)

I like the story. Maybe the idea of young person moving to place they nows nothing (or very little) about isn't new. But it doesn't have to be. 

Moving on to totally new place must be hard, especially for teenagers. But very small american towns (especially the ones in the middle of nowhere), where literally everybody knows each other, have their own charm :D  
Especially when you have some supporting friends. 

I like when game has a lot meaningful (or not) choises, plot-twists and endings :)

Characters are very interesting, too. I like them all. I don't have favourites yet.

The idea of auto-saving instead of normal saving system is good. It requires from player totally other way of thinking - more thoughtful decisions. Is it how it gonna work in full game?

It is a lot of gameplay as for demo :)

I  wish you good luck with this project

First, thank you for playing the demo! Really means a lot to me! Now, to address a few things:

Some of backgrounds could be replaced with something better. Especially the ones made of photos and pictures from found on the interenet.

Yes, the backgrounds that are obviously real photos are just placeholders; the ones with the art style that matches the characters are more like what the final BG style will be.

I like when game has a lot meaningful (or not) choises, plot-twists and endings :)

Then this truly is the VN for you! :)

The idea of auto-saving instead of normal saving system is good. It requires from player totally other way of thinking - more thoughtful decisions. Is it how it gonna work in full game?

That's the idea! I want the player to actually think about their choices and how they may or may not affect both the short-term and long-term events to come. Nothing to the level of the butterfly effect, though; the outcome will (hopefully) be logical based on player choices rather than the unpredictable "Oh, because you chose to spend time with this person, this person's dog got ran over!"

I'm currently taking a short hiatus from Berry Street while I work on my project for NaNoRenO, but once that's done, I'll be sure to get back to work! In the meantime, feel free to follow one of the social media platforms via the Extras menu in the game, as that's where you'll get more current updates, if you're interested.
