Hi there! Thank you so much for playing the demo! :D I'm really glad you enjoyed it!
Magic store shopkeeper isn't a love interest unfortunately. I've found that 5 love interests is already a lot for me to handle as the sole writer, especially since I intend on giving each route around 100k words long of branching narrative, not to mention the costs of the extra art required for another route :( Sorry about any disappointment!
I'm very pleased that you like the MC! She's definitely got a strong character of her own, and I was worried players may not be able to identify with her, so I'm happy to hear she's at least an enjoyable playable character for you! :)
Again, thank you so much, and I'll definitely keep working hard on the game to hopefully bring the full release as soon as possible!
