Ah, I'm glad to hear you're looking forward to playing it and please do let me know what you think. ^_^
I LOVE it. I like the more serious tone as opposed to the first game, though I'm pleased it still has a lot of the originals charming playfulness still. I'm so excited to see how the characters have grown over the past few years. I like being able to select the original traits up front as well as the route as I had a little bit of trouble guessing when the first game first came out and it took me a bit to figure out what option equaled what trait (except the super obvious ones).
So far Sophia is my fave for this game, though I loved the interactions between MC and everyone. Leo and her were really cute together, and I love the dynamic with her brother. I also really like the loveless marriage option, I'm a sucker for angst. It was great hearing our mom's reaction to our choices (she got so angry with all of mine haha) and meeting her in person, I can tell she's going to be a great (and fearsome!) character.
Looking forward to the rest of the routes, especially my fave of the first game, Bastien, I'm sure that choice will go over well with mom :P
Anyway, good luck and thank you for all of your hard work, I shall be stalking this game relentlessly!
Thank you for such positive feedback. I'm glad you enjoyed the demo so far, and that despite the more serious setting, the characters lighthearted moments still come across (I worry that some people might be disappointed it is not as jovial as the first game).
Well, I am hoping Bastien and the other routes will be finished soon, so please let me know what you think once you've played his one, since he's your favourite. ^_^
Thanks for playing and for your continued support
