I haven't played all the other contestants, but I'm pretty sure this is the most beautiful looking entry of the Yaoi Jam 2018. The backgrounds, the character sprites, the menu buttons and text boxes...all the graphics are really top-notch and can easily compete with most commercial releases.

I was a bit surprised when listening to one of the tracks (playing first at the makeover scene with Halim) on head phones and hearing a voice every few seconds, I think it says "preview", so I'm guessing that's a placeholder? Other than that, the soundtrack is flawless.

The setting is pretty unusual for the genre, but still credible. The poem at the beginning is a nice way to set the tone of the game and the art and music really support the atmosphere that you're aiming for.

The writing suits the story and the characters are all interesting so far, with Halim probably being my favorite.

Although I have to admit that I kind of skipped the explicit scene at the end. Not because it was bad - the graphics were on the same high level as the rest of the game. I'm just not that interested in this type of scenes. I know the Yaoi Jam is the wrong place to complain about that and both the description and story were clear about it, so I'm not counting that as a downside. Just saying that I'm not the right person to give feedback on that.

Nonetheless, a really impressive demo that I think will please pretty much everyone who's interested in that genre and rating.

Aaaaw, thank you so much for the detailed review!

Someone told me the same about one of the tracks, but I haven't been able to catch which one it is :(  All the music was supposed to be cleared for commercial purposes, so I'll listen again with headphones and download the track again or replace it. So thanks for the heads up!

You're welcome!

I went through that scene again. The track is the one that starts playing after clicking Halim's line "Follow me, please! I'll show you around." After that, the location changes to the common room of the harem. There are a few seconds of silence at the beginning, but then the music with the "preview" voice fades in. It starts with a guitar-like sound, then some shakers join, then some other drums...but I'll guess you can figure out which track it is by just looking up the code and seeing what file plays. The voice can best be heard in the first few seconds, before all the other instruments join in. It repeats about every 5 seconds. It's pretty quiet and subtle compared to other "watemarks" I've heard, so it's understandable that this one flew under the radar.

Thank you again for going out of your way to help me :)
