You tell that you disapprove of what your game makes its players do then why do you make it?

Your game made on me the impression that you make it to fulfill your fantasies of dominating women, this game is obviously for a macho audience, which I am not into, so I don't enjoy it, indeed.

I don't forget my morals when I am into a virtual world, I stay true to my morals no matter in which world I am and it makes no sense to me to say "There is nothing wrong to be a prick as long as it is in a virtual world.", yes, this is wrong to use virtual worlds as excuses to be a prick, because we imagine and create virtual worlds in order to fullfill our fantasies that the real world doesn't allow us to, so if we want to create and play virtual worlds which allow us to do something and reward us for doing it, that implies that we would like to do this thing in the real world and use virtual worlds to do it because the real world doesn't allow us to do it, so the mere fact to be willing to do bad things in a virtual world tells a lot about our morals.

The things that you tried to make me do in your game, I wouldn't enjoy doing them in real, so why would I enjoy doing them in a virtual world?

This is why I believe only real jerks or wanna be jerks enjoy playing as jerks. So as you said, your game is not for everyone.

You want people know what to expect from your game? Then make it clear in the game description that the player character is a jerk because you didn't mention this point anywhere in the description.

If I may, while I understand that you hold yourself to a high moral standard and do not want to engage in these actions it's important to remember that we're all human out there, and it's very unhealthy for most people to hold themselves to a standard of perfection. To these people being able to have an outlet for these emotions that is safe and doesn't harm anyone directly can do wonders in helping them be able to accept themselves, deal with their emotions, and continue to live in peace with those around them. While I get that the game isn't for you because you can't stomach such actions being forced on the player, it is important for us that 'Hero' is a character all of his own with his own personality in a world that's not the best place to live, and while to a player he can fulfill various fantasies (you'd be surprised at how large our female audience is, both inserting themselves into hero's perspective and those even inserting themselves into the perspective of someone in the harem), the Alina scene in question helps serve to make it very clear to the audience that the story won't always go how they want and if they're not willing to explore the sort of character who Hero is that now is a good time to get out. That said, we'll talk about some if we might be able to make the description of the game a little more clear about what it is, but I can't promise much as some of the sites we host on are a bit more strict with the description of the game than the game itself.

Also, a bit of an aside but I do feel that I've got an obligation to point out to you that Renryuu has plenty of actions in it required for the story that would not fit your viewpoint, such as lying about your identity to seize political power over a sovereign nation, carrying out unjustified wars, having sex with women under false pretenses, having sex with employees, and killing others who happen to be in the way of your goals. While you may be okay with these certain things, I think that it's important to point these out as it feels like your viewpoint is inconsistent, having dealt with some instances where that's been the case myself I thought it'd be good to advise that maybe you reflect on why you're okay with Renryuu having these things but not okay with Harem Collector having it's morally reprehensible actions as understanding why one is okay with you but the other isn't is an important step to understanding yourself and being able to voice your thoughts effectively!

As I said, Ryen is a much better king than the original one would have been as the bloodline heir was a selfish brat and Ryen is a king who goes out of his way to personally help his people and even foreign people, he is a king but he barely stays at his castle as he spends most of his time to travel around the world and help whoever he can.

Trey, the head of the royal guard, himself told to Ryen that he is aware that he is an impostor but he recognizes him as the true king since he truly cares about his people. Moreover, if it was not for Ryen, the nobles families would have caused civil war in the kingdom as if they knew that the royal bloodline was extinguished, they all would claim the throne and war each other for supremacy. Ryen, with his trick, backed up by Trey, saved the kingdom from a civil war which would have torn the country apart.

You claim that this doesn't fit my viewpoint but you obviously are totally wrong about me since you seem to think that I am zealous about morals just because I told that I disliked being a jerk in your game, I never talked about morals, from the beginning I talked about respect for women.

My viewpoint is the same as Trey, I approve of Ryen as the true king as he cares about his people and does his best to make everyone happy, actions matter way more than bloodline to me.

And which wars are you talking about exactly? I didn't carry any war, it is even the opposite, I have improved Central relationships with other countries and everyone likes Central, no one wants to attack my kingdom as I am not hostile to anyone. If you "carried out unjustified wars", then it was the result of your behavior, it happened only because people didn't like you, when I am the one in control of Ryen, he is kind-hearted so everyone likes him and no one wants to attack him nor his kingdom, I didn't experiment any war. This is what I talked about, in Renryuu, the player is really in control, the heroes is how the player wants him to be, the player has real freedom to experiment the game how they want, as opposite to your heroes you arbitrary gave a static personality and didn't give a chance to the player to give their own personality to the heroes, so only players who like your heroes personality can actually enjoy being him as they don't have the freedom to make the heroes how they want him to be, this is why I am talking about static personality as opposite to dynamic personality that Ryen has.

Having sex with women under false prentense, what do you mean?

Yes, Ryen has sex with his servants, and with their consent, he never forces himself on any of his servants, he doesn't need to since he is such a sweet man that they all want him, they actually are the ones requesting his affection, which he gladly offers. And when Ryen has sex, he truly cares about the woman/women and their pleasure, not just his own, nothing like your jerk who sees women as toys.

Of course Ryen kills, he is a warrior after all, but he never kills if he has a choice. At least not when I am the one in control of him.

There is no inconsistency in my viewpoint since you pointed things not related to my concern. You pointed lying about his identity in order to change his life and get a fresh start, having sex with his servants and killing while I didn't mention any of these things in my concern about your game. From the beginning, I have always said that I disliked your game because I disliked being the prick that you force on the player as you don't give to the player the freedom to give their own personality to the heroes, and to be more specific, what I dislike about your jerk is how he treats women. You adviced me to reflect on why I am okay with Renryuu but not with Harem Collector. I don't need to since I already know and I already told, the answer is because Ryen is nice to women while your heroes is a selfish prick. Now I return you the advice to maybe reflect on why Ryen seems to be a sweetheart when I am the one in control of him and an asshole when you are the one in control of him.

If you don't enjoy it then stop whining and GO AWAY. It's clearly not a game that's made for you. You are not the intended audience, so stop trying to change something that someone else made for other people just because you don't like it.
