OH MAI SWEET AUNT PETUNIA

There was a SURVEY?!?! *Gasps* THERE'S GOING TO BE A SEQUEL?!?! ('Thorns of War' -- YAAAS) *GASPS* MORE SOFIA?!?!?!?!!

*Dramatically Faints*

Sad I Missed Survey -- but YES to RESULTS! I Absolutely Cannot WAIT to Continue a Romance with my Baby!!! Completely Agree that Most VNs Focus on the 'Falling' bits; not the Rigors of KEEPING the Relationship. The Sprint vs. the Marathon. I'm actually REALLY Looking FORWARD to seeing each character's own Personal desires for the Future of their respective relationships -- not just the MC's. If there are Clashes in Ideals and how that will be Resolved. And what PLACE that will all have in a WAR.

Saleha Chowdhury's style is AMAZING, btw -- Exciting you've commissioned her! As for the new outfit designs: It feels like there's a lot of Blue/Green/Purple? I know this is supposed to be Winter, but I'm surprised there aren't any Burgandys(Muted, yet Bold -- the MC, especially, would look good in it since her eyes are Green) or Browns. I also feel MC's outfit should be more Distinctive -- beyond a Bow to tell you she's Important. Also to the changed season, I'd love to see jackets and shawls. Even embroidered gloves. Wouldn't be against MC having a different hairstyle - especially if it were let down a bit to reflect shielding the cooler air. Slightly off-topic, but will there be more poses as well? Just looking at this single scene, a good Number of the women have the Curled hand thinking pose going on, which makes it lose its Power.

Hope that helps! I feel like this round will have Darker themes, and that is my JAZZ, SON. <3 Rooting for you!

Yes, we're very lucky to have Saleha on board and it's been great working with her. I've also commissioned the GUI artist, Laura Henderson, who worked on the GUI for Heaven's Grave to  work on TTOW as well. I'll be putting up a proper update regarding that in the next week or so.

As for accessories, they are on the way - once I have an idea of which characters will have 'outdoors' scenes, I'll be commissioning  some gloves, cloaks, hats etc. 

No, there won't be more poses due to budget constraints. If it had just been the characters from 'Rose', I would have paid for extra poses, but there are more sprites to come - another 7 characters plus a few 'extras'. 

Well, I hope you enjoy the game - darker themes and all ^_^

Laura!!! [insert Raised Hands emoji Here] <3 I'm so Glad to see the team's flowing well for this second installment~ I also didn't mention anything for the new background(Apologies) -- I like it! My favorite bit is the Lighting from the windows, it feels Very Warm and well done. The room(looks like a Dining setting)feels practical and what it was intentioned for. I don't know where they are, but that Practicality also feels conducive to 'war times'.

YAY for accessories! It's the little things that Make It. And - Ah - on budget constraints. I read something on the additional romance options you would have if you stayed unromanced, but I didn't know there would be another SEVEN character sprites(+EXTRAS). I suppose if we get THAT much NEW in the character realm, a few old poses can be allowed. ;)

Beyond Darker Themes, another thing I'm REALLY looking forward to(and what the image you provided invoked)are the Deeper conversations/banter between the girls. In the first game, Understandably so, each of the Nobles(+Sofia)were all Wearing Masks -- the conversations were all centered on the Prince(or future unions) and who would get the Prince and Out-Daintying each other. But we all saw BLIPS of the ladies' respective Intellects. I'm VERY Sure they all have Strong Opinions on this War -- Especially all being from different homelands. I'm also MORBIDLY Curious(Get that POWA, Hunty~)on QUEEN MC who just romanced Prince to be in Position of POWER and what Greater Role SHE Might Possibly have in Negotiations(or redirecting the war elsewhere for her people's benefits). It would be nice to see if there's the option of Truly Falling for Prince after getting to Know him better(not SHOVED down her throat) -- OR: If Queen can have SECRET AFFAIR in her loveless Marriage. ^^
