I feel a little bittersweet on Parties Unknown.

But I guess it works...

It won't be named Parties Unknown.
<Aura> would you squeeze a warm PVC bottle between your thighs and call it "manaka-chan"
<Suriko> I would do it if it wouldn't be so hard to explain to my parents

I will admit, it's 8 am after a graveyard shift, and I really should be working (woot! only 3 hours left!) but is parties unknown something I wrote? If it was, and if you've got a problem with that, then get some bloody education...

That aside, I will have to dig up a screenshot of what I"m talking abotu for Higu; it would probably make sense.
Also, it gives us a chance to add the "unlocked" material mid-game (ie, you get it added to the menu, but you can take a "time out" from the game to look at the unlocked stuff).
Er... I think I had apoint, but mostly I'm just skiving from work 'cause I'm no longer getting double time-and-a-half (I dropped back to straight double time at 6am. Still, making a week's worth of pay in a day is pertty sweet).

The coffee shop jsut opened. Woot.

One thing is that the act titles can be different once you've switched onto a Girl's path. So for one girl, the title of act 3 can be "A New Hope", while for another it can be "Thinking with Portals" or whatever.

(The examples are bad, but hopefully the idea came across well enough.)

Huzzah, Bundle of Hisao made the final cut.

I second Losstarot. Back when it was discussed it gained a bit of popularity.. but I still wondered if it would make the final cut. I guess now I know.

The Act 1 title really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really, really sucks.

Pretty much everyone agrees. Perhaps this needs to be discussed again.

I kinda tend to agree.

It's a pun, sure, but not only is it a *bad* pun, it's a bad pun that needs to be explained.

That kinda removes from the humor.

I guess this is one of those thigns that happened whilst I was away (in in that period of confusion when I got back).

It can't hurt to go back over some suggestions.

A pun... with an explanation? Yeah, that makes no sense and defeats the purpose. It's not even funny. It's something that an annoying kid would say, "Bundle of Hisao, GET IT!? GET IT!? Okay, I'll explain it to you!"

Where did this name come from anyway? I don't remember anything about it from before it was announced.

I suggest "Fatal Attraction". I don't have to explain.

"Life Expectancy" or "Change of Heart" seem to be the least bad Act 1 titles so far. Maybe one of those?
