Hey there! Thank you so much for your honest feedback, I really do appreciate it :) I think about the characters and how to present them and their motivations a lot. I guess it's one of the hardest things to master in storytelling to create believable characters.
Raphael's struggle shifts way more into focus in the upcoming 2nd chapter but I've already implemented some revised parts for the earlier sections of the game (not released yet) to make the whole quest feel more urgent.
Again thank you so much for sharing your thoughts! I hope you stick around for the next chapter!
