Thanks a lot! I'm glad you liked the game :)
Truth is, the "Chapter 1" thing was just a way to set the game mood a bit more, especially given that it ends with a cliffhanger. However, some people have told me that they would like to know more about the story, so I may, in fact, continue the series at some point.
The simplicity in those details you mention were because of time. Sadly, I could only work in the game during the last week of the IGMC, so I had to cut as many corners as I could and prioritize the vital aspects of the game.
Thanks again for the feedback!
