Time Wizard Studio's hybrid of a dating sim, visual novel, and adventure game, Another Chance, is in development and playable on Itch.io.
Another Chance is an adventure game with an hourly system, wherein you play as a guy in his thirties that still lives with his mom. While mulling over your regrets of high school and the misery of adult life, you receive a text from an unknown number. Apparently, this person knows who you are and what you were doing yesterday, and whoever they are, they proceed to call you a loser for doing nothing with your life. After trash-talking your existence, they tell you that you will get another opportunity in life. They never elaborate on this point or even respond afterward, so you decide to go to sleep. Upon awakening, you find that your room looks just like it was back in high school, realizing that you're reliving your senior year in high school again. It becomes clear that this is your opportunity to correct the mistakes of your past and enjoy your youth to the fullest.
The gameplay revolves around a stamina bar that decreases with every action taken. This includes investigating items, talking to people, and moving from one location to another. When your stamina reaches zero, one in-game hour will pass. Everything in the game runs on a schedule; some events can only be completed within a certain hour, and characters will appear in different areas depending on the time.
The main goal is to accept quests and earn the affection of the girl of your choice. The girls themselves also have two affection bars: one corresponding to love and the other with lust. These gauges increase or decrease depending upon your choices. Even your actions directed towards the environment can end up indirectly affecting other characters indirectly. The game also features an x-ray mode where you can see through characters’ clothes. When you're talking to a girl, just hover your mouse over her body and that section of her clothes will be removed.
