Oh gosh, this was a very enjoyable game! I went in figuring I'd probably like Andino because the stoic loyal types appeal to me, so I did Giacomo's route first, and he punched me (figuratively in the feelings, as well as literally). He's such a good and cute example of a scrappy puppy trying to be a wolf, who just wants to be pet, and of course his kiss CG was during [/spoilers]. Wonderfully understated and cute romance.
Also, I loved the writing! The backstory sections were so evocative, they felt like a joy to read whenever they showed up, and they were a great contrast to the liveliness of the present-day story and jazzy tracks. Speaking of those, the audio choices were great, and the little graphics of past-Marco, Giacomo, Andino (AND HOG) were actively adorable.
I'm so impressed you did this all in a month, to boot - this is inspirational, and I'm looking forward to seeing more of your writing! (Still need to play Heart is Muscle!)
