Games like these make me wish there was a rating system on itch.io, because I would easily give it a 5/5. Words cannot describe how quickly I became enthralled and interested. The gameplay was very unique to how usual RPG Horror games play, and the story was fantastic. The artwork was gorgeous, and the character development as well was to die for (well..I guess some characters did die for development.)
Other RPG Horror games that I've played have commonly had a repeating theme, with similar characters and stories. I've played Misao and Mad Father and both were very similar (not to mention made by the same developer), and I couldn't even make it through Ib and Endroll which were others that had been recommended to me en masse. Purple, though, was a wonderfully new experience. I discovered it through the infamous robo-ahoge on tumblr (Thanks Mikey for the recommendation.) and I was absolutely in love within the first few minutes. Of course, I was STOKED for the LGBT representation as all of the main characters are LGBT; it was quite refreshing. I finished all of the endings in a span of 4 hours and when it was over I actually shed a tear or a few at the beautiful composition of this game. Fox has done a glorious job on this game and I am very much so anticipating Misanthropy and other games by them. Thank you for creating such a wonderful work!
oh this was such a nice review thank you so much! i am so so glad you enjoyed the experience! it really means a lot to have your support!
I'm really glad the whole "urban" style game has been going over so well! a few people have told me it was quite refreshing since the majority is all spooky haunted houses set in ambiguously old time periods (not that theres anything wrong with those, i love them still!) but im glad my idea to go in a different direction is well received!
im really glad you enjoyed the characters too! i spent a lot of time trying to make everyone flow realistically when talking. im glad you could find me through robo-ahoge too! i really appreciate them so much for all their support ;u;
haha im glad you were happy with the LGBT rep, i know as a LGBT person im usually bummed out by the fact theres hardly any rep.
i do hope you enjoy my games to come too ;u; im glad youre looking forward to them! ill try not to disappoint!
and one last thing, someone had messaged you about this, but i did not like their rude tone, so ill just let you know there is a rating system! there should be a box in the top corner! its a little hard to notice, but if you wanna throw a rating on it it would be much appreciated!
Oh! Thank you so much for letting me know. I've used itch.io for a short while but most all replies and comment posts I've written on mobile, so I guess I can't use the rating system. Sorry, that must have made me seem inexperienced ;-; thank you for letting me know though!
