First episode of Acting Lessons released.
The episode includes:
– 299 renders

Gameplay:

The gameplay is decision based. The player can be named to your liking and early on you get to select to identify with one out of three different traits (Athletic, Charismatic or Well-read).
The traits will open up different options during the game and can lead to different reactions to your choices and affect how characters perceive you.
The relationship stats are hidden and in the end of each episode a summary of choices and characters feelings towards you is presented.

The primary focus of the game is the blossoming romance between you and Megan.
However, as the story unfolds there will be other characters that are eligible for romantic encounters as well.
You may also choose to form a strong bond of friendship with your best friend Liam.
The game features music and sound effects.
