After many months of virtual silence and no attempts to solicit money from anyone, the team, operating under the name "Future Game Laboratory" has released a playable beta of the visual novel.
The beta download can be found here for Mac, PC, and Linux
PukeyPony, the artist who was originally slated to be involved in the FAKE Dark Skyes project, is listed as the lead artist for this build.
Horse News has thusfar played through the game from start to finish, and it is clear that if the project continues to completion, it could prove to be a very in-depth product. There appears to be 14 different story-lines you can choose to follow, including one that could prove to be a "hot for teacher" scenario.
Feel free to give it a try and see what you think.
The project site has very little information available for the game, except for this:
We're Future Game Laboratory, a visual novel game design team! The majority of us are college students and are new to the visual novel development scene.
