Hi, so I was intrigued by this game for quite awhile since it so strongly reminded me about hannigram (Hannibal/Will) pairing and Will Graham in general xD Yeah, perks of being a fangirl – seeing your fav Tv-series/OTPs everywhere. Anyway, I decided to play it yesterday and well. It's quite interesting thing. The music was nice (though I felt the lack of it in some places), atmosphere, idea. I like that dialogues are framed by those torn arms... Yeah, I'm a weird person I know who just love horror stuff)) I ended up with "Fast Friends" ending and it was predictable but logical ending, though I'm not really a big fan of Thomas. The guy was pretty much a stalker and I don't really like people with such "i'm sexy and i know it" personality (I'm not saying that you wrote him bad, it's just my preferences). Buuuuut I'm really looking forward to exploring more endings with Parker, because I haven't met the guy yet, but I think he's going to be interesting enough. Also I just love the ringtone Lane put on his friend xD So thanks for making the game ^^ Though I have one question about Lane's reasons for cannibalism. You mention it was just because of some "human special protein", but won't be proteins denaturated at high temperature i.e. while cooking? So all Lane's "medical" reasons are preeeeetty non-existing xD Ps by the way I also made a 4-part letsplay on your game, and already uploaded the first part. I hope it's okay if I post it here ^^ And once again thanks for the game, I had not such a bad time playing it ^^
Hi, thanks for the comment! (And thanks for your Let's Play, it's totally fine to post the link and I'll be sure to take a look later!)
I have to say, I have seen Hannibal, but I didn't really think about it in regards to this game until you said that! But now that you mention it, I can see some similarities, haha. (Although if Lane is similar to Will, I don't think there's any character particularly similar to Hannibal in it...)
I'm glad you're overall enjoying the game so far! I hope you enjoy Parker's ends since you don't like Thomas as much (which is understandable).
As for the "human proteins," you're right that they would denature somewhat upon being cooked. There is actually more of a story behind Lane's cannibalism that should give you a more satisfying answer (check those epilogues), but I don't want to spoil it for you! (Although, I did try to make the game realistic, but it is still largely pseudoscience because it's fiction, so I would urge you not to take it too seriously, haha.)
Hey and you're really really welcome ^_^ ps I'm just beginning to explore this «lets playing word» and self-advertisement is still kind of weird for me :)
It's called subconsciousness x'D Well I'm still pretty okay with only Will xD
Oh, I think I will))
Nah, it's just me being once again smart little sh*t xD And being happy to find that not all the knowledges I got at uni vanished xD Also how the hell do you have epilogues, you got them after main «love-interest» ending or if you don't end up with anyone? о_О just curious)))
Just wanted to let you know that I played the Parker storyline and got too endings one more awesome than the other (Beautiful ending and NEW CHAPTER). And especially the last one is so akjghghg like I HAVE NO WORDS how good it is, how amazing of a boyfriend is Parker, how sweet is their story! Like SUPER BIG THANK YOU for this game. If I could I would give you 5 stars one more time!!! ^^
I totally get you, I'm pretty new to the indie dev scene too so self-promotion is still a little weird, haha. Hopefully it gets easier with time!
They say it's impossible to make anything 100% original in the world, and I can't say I disagree! People are just influenced by things and have things stored in the subconscious, so all you can do is try your best to make something interesting and unique.
And honestly, fun fact: part of my desire to go through with the idea for this game was so I could use all of my weird knowledge about cannibalism and related topics, haha. I'm a master of collecting weird information so I've gotta use it somewhere, right? So I totally get you there too, it's nice to have a chance to use that info!
I'm glad you had fun with Parker's route! Thank you so much for giving his route a try even though you didn't like Thomas' much! (And if you haven't found them yet, you can get the epilogues by restarting the game after getting all the bad ends. There will be a new option at the point where the game branches into their two routes!)
Let's hope so))
Haha yeah, also as they say it's not the idea that makes things like books/movies/gamed good, it's the way you tell the story, how you present everything))
Haha, well it's a good way to use it. And it reminded me about that time when I was doing some online course on criminalistic topic and one of the girl was like "I honestly think that if someone saw my browser history I'd be put away in prison for a long time, because no-one would ever believe me that I was searching all that for my work as a writer" xD
OH yeah!! It was really nice experience and thanks for information. I'll try to use it in future ^_^
