The drawn background in Diemen's route is more consistent with the art direction than the edited stock photo, despite being less detailed. A blurred version of the photo is also unused.

Vol. 7 Bushes

Concept Portraits

Sketches of portraits used in the game, except for Vikare's where a finished asset does not exist and no portrait is shown after his accident. diemen_die was removed in later patches.

Revisional Differences

While bugfixes were common between volumes, noteworthy changes are listed here.

title_idle/title_hover (Old) title_idle (Revised)
Friendsim title idle old.png
Friendsim title hover.png
Friendsim title idle new.png

The new logo was changed with the release of Volume 2. It shakes when hovered instead of formely displaying title_hover (that no longer exists).

Character Select Screen

Original Revised

This screen was changed with the release of Volume 2. When hovering with the mouse, characters on the new screen now display another portrait rather than just glowing.

Missing Horns

On Volume 4's release, the image for Tagora's good ending did not include his horns. This was later patched.

Menu Screens

On Volume 2's release, a chapter/volume selection screen was added to fit more selectable characters.

On Volume 18's release, an achievement page for each character's good ending(s) and menu buttons for it were added.
