I've finished part one RIGHT NOW, and I feel the need to comment on the spot!

So, first of all, the general aspect - I love it! The art style is very pleasing. It's not too saturated with details, but remains very polished and fits the story and characters perfectly. Music is also pretty nice!

I really like how you can choose the main character's gender (up to non-binary!) and the sexual preferences. It may be a bit surprising, but the ability to choose the prefereces (and the fact that the other characters adapt to that) is something I see far less frequently than the ability to choose the MC's gender. And it was a really pleasant surprise!

The characters are also very interesting, and I love how you can influence the way they see each other in a very realistic and complex way by including very random choices such as working or not and things like that.

Now, this has it's downsides too, but to be honest the downsides are more about my personal preferences than about it being a bad or a good thing per se. Actually, I think lots of people would like it - I guess I'm the weird one haha! So, what I'm talking about is the very relatable situation Teal is in, and the overall realism of what's happening in their life. The game talks about escapism among other things, and to be honest I often need some of it to be able to overcome troubles, and this game itself is some kind of escapism right now, since I'm basically in the same situation as Teal is right now, except I don't even have a work. It's kind of stressful to play a game trying not to think about the troubles you have for a while on days when you can't do anything about it, and seeing the game shows you the exact same situation XD - but well, as I've said, I think most people would think it's appealing, and besides I guess I stumbled upon this game at a bad time too.


Now, depressing things aside...

------------------SPOILER WARNING!!!--------------------

That ending got me so traumatized oh my god nooooo!!! I... had a feeling something like that may happen, but that was still awful! I mostly expected that test with the AI will end, and Joyce would be forced to leave, not something like that. But it also makes me curious... is there a way to actually prevent that from happening, or is it the default ending for part 1 (minus small differences depending on the choices, of course)?

I also like Snow a lot. I wish they were older and also a romance option haha! The part when Teal was so adamant about their theory on the book without knowing Snow was the author was really cute and funny.


Anyway, creators, if you read this - thank you for making such a lovely game! It's always a pleasure to have a game featuring a (hopefully) romanceable AI/robot/other character!

Thank you so much for writing this comment <3 We're really happy you like the game!
Being able to choose gender and preferences is something we're always happy to see in a game like this ourselves so including it was one of the first decisions we made. And it's great to hear that it's appreciated!

We're sorry to hear that you are in a difficult situation right now and wish you the best of luck that it will get better soon!
Escapism is something probably most people deal with in some way and parts of Teal's and Joyce's views on it definitely come from personal experiences. So it was important to us not to paint it as either entirely bad or good since there are usually more complex issues involved.
Even if the game may have failed at serving as a distraction we hope that this aspect wasn't entirely unpleasant for you :'D

The ending of part 1 is always like this. It would be nice if there was a way to change it but since the events of part 2 are affected by it quite a bit, it would have been too big of a branching point for us to handle.

And don't worry, Joyce is romanceable and if you choose to look for them, they'll appear again in part 2 ;)

Yeah, I figured so, about the escapism thing, and don't worry - while I didn't like this specific aspect, everything else was great and Teal is very cute and charming, so it wasn't too hard to overlook either!

And I totally understand about the ending of part 1. It's not like I'd WANT it to be different, since it was a great scene in my opinion. But if it was possible, I'd have tried to do the other ending too, of course XD
