Note that this isn't even close to done. Feedback is appreciated! The current plan is to just keep updating this file as I complete the game, so feel free to check back and see if that has happened. (THIS FEELS LIKE SPAMMING FOR VIEWS AND IT MAKES MY SOUL FEEL DIRTY BUT WHATEVS IT'S HOW I ROLL) I will post updates on my journal, and I will try to update at least once a week. Thanks everyone for all your support! And if you run into a bug/typo/whatever, just tell me in the comments so I can fix it!
And in case you were all like, "What even is Swimming Anime?" it's an anime that is now called Free!
, and the real anime is coming out in July. When I started making this sim, all of our knowledge of the anime came from this commercial
, and so I took the character images from the commercial and I took the guys' names/personalities from the fandom. Know Your Meme has an excellent article
on the Swimming Anime, so check that out!
EDIT April 3, 2013: Now you can visit the pool during free period! It's an adventure in which I creatively avoid cursing and our protagonist avoids learning about major plot points.
EDIT April 14, 2013: Ha, you thought there would be regular updates? WELL YOU THOUGHT WRONG. Anyway, enjoy finding out what is on Tsun's mystery phone. (Is it pony porn? Whooooo knowwwwwws...)
EDIT May 16, 2013: Because late updates are better than on-time updates. You can now go on a walk! It's pretty intense, but I think you're strong enough to handle it.
EDIT May 22, 2013: You can now go on the internet inside the game that you are playing on the internet!
