A downloadable game

Fifteen years ago, a fatal and near untraceable disease was discovered after the deaths of six children in Manila. After finding out that the disease is only transferable through skin contact, the city is shut off from the world, until a cure could be found.

 Now in present day, twenty-three year old Jericho survives by being an intimus : someone who sells human touch inside the walls of the Neo-Manila QZ. Though the crime is considered punishable by death, both police and citizens have come to accept them as part of "normal" life. 

 That is, until one day, a new chief inspector is put into position, who’s determined to rid the streets of intimus once and for all. 

 Now Jericho, deprived of clients, is starving. And the decisions he will make will determine if he dies by the end of the day, continue being a survivor...

Or maybe, show him something that's thought impossible in Neo-Manila : love.

I'm still really looking forward to playing more of this sometime! If there's any way I can contribute to the project to help somehow (though I don't know too much in terms of code) I hope you might let me know!

I played this a while again and I'm (impatiently) awaiting the Day 1 patch! Any idea roughly when we can expected this release? And any way I can get notified?


Hey there arceus! Sorry about that, we didn't expect things to take this long either D:

While playtesting we came across a huge bug that deformed all our sprites and deleted about 40% of the script. Currently, I'm planning to go over and meet with the team personally to try and fix everything.

We could release 1.2.ALPHA with a beauty patch in the near future, but we're also thinking about just releasing everything in one go instead of fixing the Do Not Love in increments.

Don't worry, we'll post a devlog once the next update drops, and I'll message you personally so you don't miss out!

Thanks for the support ^_^ we're working our best to get this up and running ASAP :D

Sorry to hear that about bugs with the script! Perhaps next time it would be wise to keep a daily backup as not to jeopardize all your work if something goes amiss. That's what I tend to do with my stuff anyway.

Looking forward to the next update in any case!
