Thank you so much for such detailed commentary and feedback! So wonderful to get your thoughts on all these elements of the game! As this was one of our first games we learned a TON doing this demo, and are working on lots of fixes (some related to the issues you mention above). One of the biggest is the inconsistency with the sprites. That was a result of our short timeline and working with multiple artists, but with the luxury of more time we're now working on a single set of sprites (and many more expressions) produced by a single artist. The MC herself is already done and she looks sooo amazing now... https://mobile.twitter.com/LuckcatGood/status/1550044800996491267 We are also considering some changes to the MC's backstory that will give the player more context and input into her story (and hopefully maintain the right balance of snarkiness and likeability). Also glad to hear you liked the "paradox" plot discussion - it felt pretty geeky and we weren't sure if others would appreciate that geekiness or not. If you enjoyed the discussion with Helen, I'm curious if you found a hidden scene with her (not sure anyone did, maybe we hid it too well). Don't want to put any spoilers here, so pls DM on twitter if you wish to discuss that :) Again, thanks for all the detailed feedback. Glad to hear there's interest in the plans post-demo.
Wow, MC looks so gorgeous!! I figured it was the case of multiple artists but thank you for responding!
I'm definitely looking forward to more MC backstory since it appears that she is struggling against the common conflict of that time for ladies who do not wish to be married, but her specific circumstances haven't been revealed. I'm curious how you wrote around the issue of her being a marriageable single lady who's out and about sans escort. (Or is that only something for women of a higher social standing?)
Feel free to geek out! I personally loved that scene and discussion, though I'm sure there will be others who might find it too lengthy or do not have the interest to follow along.
I am pretty sure I did not find the hidden scene with Helen, so I'll have to go back and hunt that down!
Ah yes... sans escort is something that's a bit tricky. We take a bit too many liberties at the moment (and will continue to do so in the name of good fun) but that's one of the things we at least have a semi-plausible explanation for. It's also a time when the streets of London aren't exactly safe either. Feel free to DM on twitter @LuckcatGood if you need help with Helen's hidden scene (don't want to post spoiler here), we'll probably make it easier to stumble across in the next edit, right now it's far too obscure. BTW, there's also a hidden route as well, and a couple of people have found that one, so we will probably leave that one as is. :)
