First, I want to say that I too visited a beach town growing up and some of Nova's experiences are drawn from my own. Never met a seafolk there, though unfortunately. )^': Haha, but that's probably why it feels so realistic!
Thank you very much for your many compliments! I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed it for the most part! I've been trying not to be too lore explain-ey while also giving the oceans their own unique feel. I hope reading the full routes will satisfy any curiosities!
And thank you for liking Nova so much. She and Lemos were fun to write and I really like Lemos' route quite a lot. His will probably be released second, after Isven.
Comedy is something that I've always felt is my weak point so I can't express how gratifying of a sentence that was to read. I don't have a release date yet but I'm proofreading Isven's route as we speak. I can't wait to reveal the routes at release either! :D
