For anyone wanting to follow the game, you can either go to my website or twitter.
Rosebud Prep is a story oriented choice of formatted game. The entire game (even the title) is subject to change, right now I just want to get a feel for how I want the story to go. Feedback is extremely helpful as this is my first choice of novel.
This game is mature and offensive, there are currently sexual themes, underage drug use, and swearing. There will be sex, offensive slurs, and other mature themes in the full game.
You will be able to pick your character’s sex, hair and eye color, and sexual orientation. As of right now, there isn’t much you can do with your character, but I plan to let you choose your character’s race, religion, etc. Your character will be able to romance other characters, but the possible romanceable characters will depend on their sex and orientation.
The game is less than a tenth of the way done. It may be a little rushed, I wanted to get this demo out as soon as I could.
Now for the actual plot. The game takes place in the year 2039, you are a 12-year-old who has been chosen to go to Rosebud Prep, a school in Briarwood, the educational capital of the world. Only the best and brightest go to a Briarwood school. There is just one problem, Rosebud Prep is a remedial school. Rosebud Prep is your best chance to get into college so you decide to go. There, you meet characters like Arin, a friendly student whose personality seems to change every time you meet with him, Marco, a brute who is always up for a fight, Aria, one of the popular girls who seems nice. Throughout the story, you will make a name for yourself, learn the rules of the school, and make new friends or enemies and possibly, romances.
READ: If you don’t want to read about a bunch of 12-year-olds talking about sex, drinking, or swearing, you DO NOT want to read this. Like I said, the game’s offensive.

Q: Can you please change the character’s age?
A: If I did, the majority of the story I planned won’t work. (For a more detailed explanation, see my reply to @Lycoris)
Q: Why isn’t there an explanation provided for the school’s existence, ethics, etc.
A: I have one in mind, it’s just not written in yet.
Q: I don’t feel that the game is realistic, especially for these characters’ age.
A: There may be something wrong on my part, then. Many situations in the game are based off of my own personal experiences from when I was that age.
