Thank you so much for making this game, it really was amazing! The art is just gorgeous, and I really liked all the stories. Also thanks for recommending the playing order, I'm glad I decided to stick to it more or less.
I went for Rod first. What I liked about his route was how the princess managed to mend what she'd done wrong with her stepfamily. The real Cinderella tale. :) Second I decided to get Mr. Casanova out of the way. While I really liked his appearance in his introduction CG, as soon as he spoke, I facedesked. But then he was a pleasant surprise, having much more to him than his flirting. :) I was debating whether to save our crossdresser for last or not, but guessed it would be better to save the locked paths for last. He really charmed me (psst, his curse was based on my favorite fairytale! I feel kind of ashamed I didn't realize what was going on with the curse, even though I had a hunch about who he is), and I really thought he'd stay my favorite till the end. His bad end really is tragic though. :( Well, that's what I thought at that moment. Fritz's route easily surpassed it. That route, as a whole, was so dark, and it made me cry three times. :( (And we didn't even get to see him a lot... btw I would have never guessed his fairytale, I was convinced he's be the white swan.) Then, Waltz... I'm really happy I played his route last, and that I played without RCI and got the bad ending first. Finishing the game with the true, "fairytale" happy ending was really satisfying :) His route still gave me some surprises, mostly about the past. And it was just so sweet, I was happy that everything went just right, and he really was so sweet as well, I came to love him a lot. Sso much that I can't choose a favorite anymore between Karma and Waltz. :)
One more thing I wanted to say, you touched on some possibly sensitive topics, romancing a step-brother and someone trapped as a child, but you handled it carefully and nicely!
So congratulations and thank you again for this great work, I really had fun reading this past week. I'm looking forward to see more VNs from you :)
