I'm interested in what happened before Queen stepped in, would there be any way to find this stuff out in-game anytime?
Do you mean story-wise? At one point I was going to include character backstories but cut the feature to save time. I still have some of the rough drafts, so I might include more info on the game's world next time. Here's a bit of trivia: Nitro and Satoshi were roommates at one point, which is why they're the starting characters. Satoshi got his fire powers from Queen but had to pay an absurd amount of money for it. Alisa is the daughter of a crime boss, but ran away from home and became a hero. When Queen was younger, she was called "Princess", since demonic royalty discard their names for their titles.
One of my favorite things is to look into the backstory of the world and the characters, I'm glad that you actually had a backstory for these characters already planned, that's just a relic of how much thought you put in the game which I can tell now is a lot of time. Thanks again.
