    Change-Log:
    v0.25
    You might be wondering why it's 0.27 instead of 0.30. The answer is simple. While it has the usual amount of renders. And it's actually a bit bigger than the last patch, we didn't cover all we were hoping to cover in terms of storyline. There is a special scene in this update that we were really trying to get right. It ended up taking up over 70 renders. That's 1/3 of the update. Just one scene. So we had to cut a couple of other scenes we wanted to do to make room for it. We decided that, in the end, we're more committed to getting it right than to overall development speed.
    v0.25
    Not available

    v0.18

    No changelog yet.

    v0.10
    Not much else to say. It's the continuation of the story. 180 renders in total. Hope you enjoy it.
    One more thing. We've messed around with the background code so that once you pass a "Mary wants to go home" test, it all resets back to 0. So,you don't have to worry about getting it right every time. Once a test is passed, it's passed. That means that I HIGHLY recommend starting a new game. If you don't, depending on the place you're at, you might fail a test that you should pass etc...


    First Release


    In all the games that I've played the relationships have been superficial. Either relying on some "magic" gimmick, or blackmail to explain why the relationship exists. What I wanted was a game on which the relationship seemed real. And one in which we focus on one girl, but we really get to know her.

    Now, I'm not an IT guy by profession. I'm an agricultural engineer. So I've had to hire some people to help me. I've got what I think is the most talented writer in the community to do the script, and a few more people to help with the renders. Together we've managed to make this demo.

    The VN is very simple. From time to time you will get 2 response choices. There is a right one and a wrong one. Get too many of them wrong, and at the end of an in game week, Mary will want to go home. Don't worry, it's very intuitive.

    Sort of a refreshing - think I will check this out myself.

    She has the same hairstyle as Elena from Elena's Life. I guess most of these developers are simply using stock assets.

    All the things devs have to do to not live with his daughter, but a friend's daughter.:WutFace:
    The problem with half ways is that they usually go nowhere.

    Very good first impression.
    The girl does look a bit old in some pics, but is gorgeous and the writing is fine as well.

    Not terribly original so far, but them actually NOT being related IS rather unique by now. ;)

    All in all a promising start.

    I didn't take it as disrespect. I'm really asking.
    I thought I was pretty clear in the "intro" I wrote on patreon and that has been copied here.
    It will be a story about a young bubbly and a little awkward girl and an older man starting to have feelings for each other.
    There will be no incest, water works or any of that stuff.
    A slice of life story.

    Do I come off that abrasive?
    I didn't take any pejorative connotation from your reply.

    I looked - but cannot find a Patreon link to add to the opening game post?
    We usually add that info - so those that wish to support the game and the developer can find that info more easily.
    Thanks

    Thanks so much - I was looking for "LikesBlondes" or variations there of...
    Never thought to search for the game title as a developer / Patreon account.
    Is "LikesBlondes" or "LifewithMary" correct as a developer in the title?

    Both I guess. I'm not a developer who wants to make a career out of this. I just want to make this one game.
    My dream game. After that I'm out. So it's not like you'll ever find some other game by "likesblondes" :p

    Ok I'll keep it as - LikesBlondes - as that is the name of the Patreon account.
    Thanks for the clarification! :)
