I really like the concept and I'm SUCH a chemistry nerd (though I am only doing exams myself, heh) . The GUI is cute, the colours are eye-catching and the chemistry puns were so, so bad (I'm a sucker for bad puns, even more so nerdy ones) - I love it. There are a couple things I'd like to mention though:

The in-game menu buttons don't exactly align with where they are, so I had to keep clicking lower, where the actual button was to return to the game after saving.

This is my inner nerd speaking, and a minor detail, but "Which liquid has the highest boiling point?" and giving the answers as HF, HCl, HBr, and HI might not be the best answers, since they're all gases at room temperature at the very least... unless you're talking about when they're dissolved in water. (save for HF, which is only liquid at just below average room temperature.) [Also, the hydrogen halides in general is pretty dodgy to talk about trends in boiling/melting points.]

I think for Marina's eyes, I think they look "creepy" for lack of a better term because we can see the bottom of her irises on her normal face? I'm not exactly sure though.

That's all I have for now. I'll keep an eye on this! :D

Thank you for the feedback! I'm glad you enjoyed the puns, haha! 

The in-game buttons being off is a first for me. I made this on a mac and play-tested it on both a mac and windows pc, but everything seemed fine for me. It might have something to do with defining hitboxes (which I have no clue how to do, but I'll look into it). 

You make a good point about that halogen question. I'll probably end up replacing it since I didn't like the question much myself. I'd like to replace all the questions with some that are simpler to answer. Thank you for your feedback on this topic! 

Hmm, I'll try doing some variations with some new eyes, and I'll ask the community about it later. 

I took another look, and I think that just may be a fault on my part - if the mouse wasn't hovered on the word itself, it didn't register, so if the mouse was like, a pixel from the word, it looked like it wasn't working. It's a little finicky, but it works, so that's on my end, sorry!

Oh! Thank you very much for clarifying! C:

Okay well I'm  not sure on what to say exactly but i'll try anyways!

First of all your art style definitely caught my attention. I like the different textures and saturated colors are my weakness. I died at that pinched joey wheeler face marina was pulling at Sidney. Like, how does anyone continue a conversation with her with that face being made? lol Though I feel like there's something off with her eyes and i tried to figure it out since I didn't feel that way about any of the other guys' eyes and I think its the size in comparison to her other features (mouth/nose). that may or may not be it.

The story is pretty interesting, though its nothing dramatic I think the way you've made the characters will be the standout thing other than the art, oh that and the cursed chemistry theme. Like I hate science with a passion so the story was that interesting for me to still try the demo anyways! I got like a 2/3-5 for the quiz so idk Marinas just going to have to fail in the full version with me playing.

I was looking through the game's topic on the forum and I didn't know this was set in Hawaii but it makes a lot of sense now. (floral shirts for all) As for the cg styles and such I say go for whatever you feel like or what feels right, even mix it up if you want. I know a few VNs that have different styles for sprites/cgs/ect i dont see the problem!

Like I said before the dynamic between the characters are interesting enough to make you wonder how the whole mutual tutoring thing will turn out and whats up with the underlying drama going.

Good luck with your finals!

Wow! Thank you very much for your feedback! I've gotten some comments about the eyes before. I'll see what I can do to make her less.. scary looking?

LOL, i'd imagine Sidney was sweating through that entire conversation while Marina was making that face.. 

You know what's funny? Every time I play-test this game, I never get a 5/5 on the quiz, even though I wrote the questions.. I'm no big fan of chemistry myself, and when I was in high school, I created these characters to help me get through chemistry class. Hopefully they can help players get through chem too. xDD
