I decided to give this a try because it sounded funny. haha
I'll start with the good stuff: I liked what I've seen of the game so far. It started nice. I liked how we got a little guide to get us to the school, that then explains to us where it's everything (that's something that is missing in so many games!). I thought the clients were fun too (tho I only tried up to the 3rd floor), I like how Reyvi starts by explaining everything to you and how the 3rd client gives you some oils (before killing me in one shot :O).
The facesets looked nice and I liked the sprites you picked for the characters too.
Luke in particular looks kind of hot! xD And I really liked his sprite with the little scarf.. so cute! ^^
I thought the maps looked nice enough. I liked the snowy planes outside (the cliff dialogue was a bit odd tho). The client floors looked unique in a way, I liked exploring them.
The school hall looked nice but maybe a bit plain, I would have liked some more interesting (or odd) objects to look at. The student clinic could do with a make-over though, it didn't look bad but just maybe a bit too empty. I get that it's just a grinding area but still try to make it look a bit more welcoming.. lol
The spa looked really nice! I loved it! I would love to see more dialogues when interacting with the plants there too and it's just a suggestion but maybe add a sort of crafting option for us to be able to make our own oils in there!! :O I have been playing around with an idea for a game that it's a bit to do with crafting and managing a store and when I saw the spa the first thing that came to my mind was how much I would love to be able to work with those plants to get my own special massage oils! >_<
Now the not so good stuff: I felt there was a lack of objectives. I think we are supposed to level up while taking clients to take the test at the end? (Or at least that's what I got from the intro)
But well after Reyvi's first massage we don't really get proper guidance and there isn't a lot to explore to help you along with the leveling up. I dislike repeating the same client over and over again so I ended up in the student clinic but I found the battles there really hard at first, I ended up clinging to the crystal and my grinding went like attack-heal-attack-heal.. and after spending like 30 minutes on it I was still level 2 and despite me not dying so much now, I was still having a hard time.
I would have liked if there were some sort of side-quests to guide me along with the leveling up. Maybe get some herbs from the spa for some client (or some of the npcs roaming in the school hall) or finding a book in one of the client floors to someone? You know.. just some random stuff for us to do that could us exp, some nice items, some money, or whatever, just so we don't have to completely depend on grinding.
Rhino already mentioned in their comment the issues with the word wrap, I also noticed some text getting cut off in the item descriptions when browsing the store. You really need to fix those.
A few other things I wanted to mention:
- A typo when you get your student id ("clinicand")
- After you are done with your "first massage" you can keep giving Reyvi a massage and that's fine by me but it always says it's the first massage.. ^^' If you want the massage stages to be repeatable, you could change up the text a little after we do it the first time.
- The "how to hide $20" book was a nice trick! haha (I cheated and reloaded my save tho.. c'mon! I'm poor! XD)
- When we get the special student id while grinding in the student clinic.. the face that shows up with the dialogue afterwards it's not the faceset you used for Reyvi. I'm not sure if you did it on purpose or it was a mistake. But I don't know who that is and there's no name. It surprised me. XD
Something really important! I came across a bug with the 2nd floor client. It seems like if when he goes into crazy mode and you click no to continuing the massage, the game bugs out. I tried it twice, one time with killing him before he goes into weird mode (with the oils the old man gives you) and the other just pressing no while he still had hp left. When you press no, everything freezes and you can only hear the background music. I had to restart the game to be able to continue the game.
Overall: The game looks promising. I think it has a lot of potential really. I took this as a little taste of what's to come and I look forward to see it more polished. I really want to see what you'll do with the project after this. For now though. Good luck and keep it up! :)
