Thank you for your feedback! We appreciate it! :)
I like it a lot when there's body type diversity in other projects, so it's something I pay a lot of attention to when designing characters myself. It's nice not to have everyone with the same type of build/chest/height, isn't it? :) I'm always happy to hear when people can appreciate those touches, too. Glad to hear that the sprites seem less stiff this time around, as well. Guess that means we're simply improving on the drawing department.
As for the story-related side of things, I can only say you'll have to play the full version to find out. ;) Glad to hear that the character dynamics seem interesting so far! (You're totally allowed to ship anyone. ;)) Initially we wanted this to be a small and simple project... (Noah and Clarissa weren't even in the game during our early drafts, lol) But we're starting to think we simply lack the ability to do small and simple. We'll see how much this one expands on us in the end.
Thanks for looking forward to it!
