Hi, i just played the game and I find it fantastic ! And moreover very promising, and I can't wait until the final version comes out. And there is my too long for words review !
First, the good and there's so much good ! The main character first is hilarious, you had fun writing her, it's obvious and it's marvelous ! Two, the art is fabulous, gorgeous in the way I couldn't explain, it's beautiful the way Kant describe beauty, and it's very rare these days so preach ! Third the power ! I just love this power because it come out of nowhere, unexplained but you made it logical and even me, the annoying friend who tries to nitpick and runs everything for everyone, I didn't found any big paradoxe ... Except shits a bit incoherent but it's for latter. And fourth, the characters, they are books and famous figures and you manage to make them good otome characters and this is just so ... Just good. Really. Fifth, the cat. Nothing to add, just the cat. And that it for the good.
Now, the bad but not really, it's just things that disturb me personally but you could do nothing about it, it would still be a good game. Even though the way you made the power works and coherent, at some point it make go "wait if this doesn't this, should them be like that" and it happens in the Marie and Louis route because they see this apparition, a said student who is registered nowhere, who come and go and doesn't age and they like ... Chill ? I try to find an explanation for this, like maybe it's because they are aware she's not real and just see her as a coping mechanism for the lost of their children, send by a superior force or their inconscient (was Freud there already ??). The other part that make it go "???" was when in Demian, the MC respond to their advences like she has feelings too and this was like ... Sister ... Your feelings are as obvious as the identity of Jack the Ripper... I mean in the route itself sure but it seems like she doesn't care for them half of the time so it's like ... Yeah ? Maybe add scenes where she thinks about them outside of the books like when she do their things "write fanfic, visit the lab, take photos and think about life", it would be cool to have her think about the ones she hang with when she finish their routes, this would add the fact that she cares as much as they do and make those relationships even. Not only with Demian but all of the others books. Just a little nice touch like this.
But as I said, it's just extra and without them, the quality of the game is still more than average. It's a really good game and good luck to finish all of this. I support all of you and congrats you for creating a such beautiful, funny and heart warming game. You are great!
I wish you the very best and see you when the game is finished!
