Aah, really great game!

Since I don't usually play BxG, I did only the boys' routes, but I've still enjoyed it a lot. The art style is very unique and fits the mood and the characters perfectly, and even though very vibrant colors are not my thing, it really looks nice with this art style and story.

Did Ash's route first, and he's really the kind of characters I like seeing in that type of game. But then I did Rust's route, and oh dear, I love it so much! I can't say wich one is my favorite, to be honest!

Though I must say it's the very first time I see a work of fiction that depicts PTSD and IS NOT something in a modern Earth setting - it was actually very interesting to see!

Now, onto little things I think could be improved!

Well, first off, it would be really nice to be able to access basic options outright from the main screen, instead of having to get into a menu - like save, load, skip and preferences/options. Yeah, I also mean it would be nice to actually have a preferences menu. I'd love to be able to change the music volume for example. I had issues with it, by the way. It was very soft at the beginning, then super loud when loading the game, then again very soft and so on.

I'd also love a gallery menu for the CGs. Even if you only have one CG per route, it's always nice to see these anytime you want. I usually have tons of save slots so I can see my favorite moments of a game again and again, so having or not a gallery isn't a big deal (though I always like to have it), but with only a few avaible save slots, I can't really do that, unfortunately.

Now, my main issue was unfortunately that the game was made with Tyranobuilder or something similar, right? It seems tyrano-games are very unstable, or at least none of my two current computers AND my previous one can make them work properly, so it was a massive ordeal to play, and I even had to go through a total crash of my computer, after getting the game to break entirely. Basically, after I did Ash's route and started a new game, once I've reached the chapter where you go to pester all of the other characters, Wysp was going to get dinner after only one scene (the first one I went to see, opposite to the first time I've played where I saw them all), and then I was locked on Ash's route, even after doing only Rust-related scenes and choices. Aaand the game was crashing when skipping. It ended up breaking so badly and making my computer lag so much I had to restart, and then I had that massive crash. At least I was able to finish the game once I've managed to restart.

So yeah, about that last point, I don't know if you can really do something about it or not, like optimizing the game better or something... I figured I'd say it anyway just in case, but if you can't help it well... that's okay, I still can make it work more or less. I always had issues with tyrano-games, but since it was worse than the usual I wanted to point it out.

Oh, and sorry if my comment seems awkward at some points - english isn't my native language, and sometimes it makes my wording weird.

Well, sorry for ending it on a sour note, I hope that's okay? As I've said, I understand if you can't do anything about that last point, and the game was still great and so cute!

Thank you for making it!
