Next Step 1.0 (Full Release!!)

It's finally time for the party to wrap up. Apologies again for taking so long, but I hope that the wait was worth it! I worked really hard to make this last update the best that it could be and hope that you enjoy it! I even added a Gallery to the main menu, which I'm ashamed to say took me longer than it should have since I know very little about coding.  You'll probably have to go back and re-see all of the cg's you've already seen to unlock them in the gallery.  But it's been so long since the last update that you may want to go back and re-read from the beginning anyway. The story as a whole all came out to about 17.3k words which is the longest thing I've ever written before. I know it's probably not a whole lot compared to other stories on this platform, but it sure is one heck of a feat for me. And now that I've got a lot more experience when it comes to making a vn, maybe there will be more from me in the future? Maybe something that is a bit more on the larger scale? Probably not for awhile since I'll be busy with course work again very soon, but hopefully someday I'll be able to return to give you guys something to enjoy. 

For those of you who are craving more Wallace and Deacon content now that next step is ending, why not check out my Twitter? ( There's a small comic over there that I have been working on that is actually the continuation of this story. Hope you check it out if you're interested.

I also wanted to thank everyone who has downloaded the game so far and supported this small project. You guys make this all worth it and it fills me with so much joy knowing that you guys enjoy my work. Anyways, I'll leave you guys to it. Have fun and see you guys later!
