Thanks a bunch! Sorry I haven't updated this for a while, but I'm going to try to get a lot better at that. At the very least, I'm going to try to post consistent updates to the game's devlog.
I will try to keep the quality high throughout development, and keep doing the things you mentioned. I hope I can make the game feel engaging and immersive, even when compared to visual novels with large teams and HD artwork.
And it's encouraging to hear you already like one of the characters :p
