Aaand I'm already back after finishing the game (the previous comment here was from me too)!

I utterly loved it! I mean, I only did one route as for now, but I feel like I don't actually want to do another one, wich is a good thing despite what it may seem. When that happens to me it means I loved the route and the character so much I couldn't force myself to do someone else's!

So yeah, if you read my previous comment, you may have guessed it, but I did Lyall's route! And oh dear I loved them soooo much I can't even hnnn! They're really my perfect type of character, and wow the route was so interesting. I really loved the conflicting emotions all around, about trusting the king or not and so on. It was such a dilemna at times. Aaand the romance part itself was so sweet and heartbreaking at times too.

Okay, basically, I've loved it, and that's it!

About negative points, well not much. I've noticed some typos or missing words here and there, and also you got the pronouns wrong a couple of times (used masculine instead of gender neutral for Lyall) - but I get that pain, as both of my mother languages don't have gender neutral pronouns for people and masculine is the default haha - I mostly say it because it may be a bit more offensive for some people than it is for me, as I'm not non-binary and I'm used to it in my languages.


Now I'll go on with the spoilery part, so heads up for people other than the devs who may be reading this!

-------------------------SPOILERS AHEAD!--------------------------

So! As I told you before, I did play without walkthrough, and I've reached Lyall's ending 2. I loved it a lot since I really have a soft spot for that kind of endings actually. I mean the kind where the main characters manage to save the world(s), but they're not reverred as heroes and end up travelling far away and starting anew in more peaceful circumstances, and not tied anymore to their previous responsibilities.

I'm really happy about this ending since I've not only loved it, but also it felt so... I dunno... natural, I guess. I've tried to really balance my choices. I've tried to match somewhat Lyall's mindset by trusting the king when his actions could have been justified and with wanting to protect the world, of course. And well, as for other matters, I've basically answered the most logical thing in my opinion, depending on the circumstances of each choice. Very often when playing otome or BL games, some choices feel "forced", as in - I need to choose that in order to get the good ending, even though I wouldn't have done or said that if it was truly my choice. I didn't feel that way a single time in this game, so congrats on managing such a feat! And also thank you for that!


Now have a final thing I'd like to discuss - the other endings.

Since I got ending 2, and I assume each character has 3 endings (and one joke ending?), it can mean two things: either I got the "middle" ending, happiness wise and all (wich would mean one is worse and another one is better) or I got the best one as it would be the truce ending (while one other would mean the triumph or earthlings and the other the triumph or airians). Is one of these theories right, or am I totally wrong about that?

Also, do you have some tips about how to get Lyall's other endings? While I won't do the other routes, I may be interested in exploring this route fully. I mean, I'm sure I'd be able to find the other endings by myself if I really tried, but since I've already experienced the story I don't want to try it lots of times either.

My wild guess is that for one of the endings you need to be quite fatalist and very supportive of the king, so you'll blindly obey, and for the other one you'd have to be very optimistic and against the king, so you'd have the strenght to rebel? But of course that may be wrong!

I also have no clue about the joke ending! If these are character linked too, I'd love some tips about Lyall's one too, while we're at it haha.



Wow okay, sorry for my never-ending comment - it's really waaay too long haha...

But in any case, thank you for making such a lovely game, and I hope you don't mind me asking for tips here.

Hello again! Thank you very much for playing AIRIS, and we're glad that you liked it! :D

Thank you for all the compliments! ^_^ The writer for Lyall's route is super happy to hear that.

Ahh... We thought we caught all the typos and pronoun errors OTL So sorry about that! We'll try to comb through the script again after our exams to try and weed out the remaining pesky errors. (Omg, same actually lol. My mother language generally defaults to the masculine pronoun when referring to someone, so I do get tripped up in my head when writing gender-neutral pronouns sometimes xD I'm working on it OTL)

SPOILER ALERT:

The endings for each character are arranged in terms of difficulty to get :) So #1 is easiest, with the #4 hidden ending being (supposedly) hardest. Surprisingly enough, for all routes, the #2 ending is the most romantic/happiest one? So yep, you got the happiest ending for Lyall.

As mentioned before, Lyall's route is mainly made up of two points: determination and patriotism. So for hidden ending, make both as low as possible. For #3, be kinda fatalist and not patriotic. For #1, be super patriotic and determined. It should hopefully be easy enough to figure out which choices correspond to which points.

Hope the tips help! :) Let us know if you still have problems getting the endings.

Thanks again for playing! And definitely don't apologize for long comments. They make our day ^_^

Oh, I get it!

I'm sure I won't have any trouble to get the other endings with the tips if I managed to get the happiest one on my own! Thank you!
