Straight!? is a work in progress visual novel that specifically focuses on mature gay themes. The story follows the main character, Zack, from his first day of college after meeting his new roommate, Braden.
In contrast to other games, this game relies heavily on dialogue and character development to tell the story of acceptance, friendship, and the existential journey as one comes of age. Frequent conversations and banter will give insight to the two main characters and move the story of their relationship forward. While there is sexual content, the story builds first--capitalizing on the teasing factor as we struggle along with the main character. Updates move the story forward episodically, simulating a serial novel as the story unfolds. This game is both heavy and thought provoking while having comedic moments. Game quality also increases as the game draws out. The dev had zero experience in the start and is learning with each update and addition to the team.

Change Log v0.17.2
-Lots of typo fixes
-Slight rearrange of dialogue in the final car scenes on the way to the beach to improve the conversational flow at the suggestion of a supporter
-Corrected a beach CG where Zack and Mikhail's shorts suddenly changed from trunks to their normal outfits during the beach intro conversations
-Made adjustments to the beach activity choices. There was a contuinity error here where, based on the order of your choice, certain objects appeared in game before they were retrieved. The order has been reworked while still allowing the player to choose which beach activity they want to do first

Change Log v0.17.1
-Image and typo fixes/enhancements

Change Log v0.17
-Massive story addition and completion of Chapter 8 as well as the conclusion of Part 3 of the story. Sorry about the cliffhanger... don't hate me
-All new images in this update are now rendered in 4K UHD quality and converted down to 1080p. This should result in enhanced image quality of all the new images added in this update ONLY. All future images will be rendered in 4K as well. This should also not affect the game size either. So those who previously were downloading the full edition as opposed to the crunched edition actually have better image quality now than they previously did with 6 gig file size.
-Modified dialogue choices in cafe in Day 1 conversation to prevent references to Zack being gay before he tells Braden he may like the D.
-Corrected spelling errors but probably still missed just as many
-Slight wording change in post-park conversation to clarify "first kisses." For those confused, the park kiss was Zack's first kiss and Braden's first kiss with a dude.

Change Log v0.16.2
-Corrected some hair glitches and odd reflections in a few CGs
-And guess what: More Typos!!

Change Log v0.16.1
-Corrected typos
-Converted all .PNG files to .JPG now, reducing overall file size from 6gig down to 1.2gig.

Change Log v0.16
-Updated splash screen with pics created by Jordyn to replace the previous text warnings that were frequently missed (ex: not to use old saves, and a new warning about the game being a work-in-progress to hopefully curb some of the judgemental criticsm about the earlier parts of the game that have yet to be refined)
-Update font color changed in the chapter select to draw more attention to the Update feature there
-Began the first half of Chapter 8.
